Re: A question for Mr Glesser and Spyderco (Clipped Manbug)

I was thinking about putting a Dragonfly clip on a Manbug, looked into it a bit, and found this thread. How has it worked for those of you that tried it? I don't want to mess up a really nice little knife. I've certainly broken things that needed no fixing enough times. I did it, using a very narro...

Yojimbo 2 Is A Spectacular Slicer

I just tested the yojimbo 2 today against a few other knives and to my big surprise it's a spectacular slicer. It's definitely the best hands down from what I tested. I'd read Dr. Snubnose's results but don't think it was that good of a slicer until I saw it with my own eyes. The surprise was that t...

P'Kal vs. Yojimbo vs. Chinook

I'm looking for a dedicated self defense knife.My first choice was the Spyderco Civilian but the blade actually sticks out quite a bit as it's curved and makes carrying it in the pocket somewhat uncomfortable. As such, I'm thinking of getting another Spyderco as a dedicated self defense knife that d...

Spyderco Cricket vs. Ladybug

I know both of these are way to small to really be a dedicated self defense knife, but just to entertain the idea in theory for a self defense knife would a better option be a cricket or a ladybug? The cricket has the reverse S blade going for it plus the tip works like a miniature claw tearing as i...

Re: Knife Vs. Pork Covered in Jeans

Well I wasn't willing to sacrifice a pork roast or my jeans, but a roll of paper towels was sacrificed in the name of science :D ZDP-189 Manbug with Paracord Fob. https://i.ibb.co/6rKRfcV/20190605-165809.jpg Pressure cut. 1.5" deep https://i.ibb.co/pXCyRdD/20190605-165913.jpg Slash. 1" deep https:/...

Re: Spyderco Small Knife For Self Defense?

Hi Mike and thanks so much for your reply. I was looking at the Dragonfly and I see that there is a new version coming out with a wharncliffe blade, but no Emerson wave opener. I was watching your video where you mention that for the Yojimbo you chose a wharncliffe blade because it offers superior c...

Re: Spyderco Small Knife For Self Defense?

Dear Knife1: I also received your e-mail regarding this question, but thought I'd answer here to contribute to the discussion. Years ago, I used to do my "Pork Man" demo with a Cricket to show the cutting power of a small blade. While the Reverse S did a great job of demonstrating how devastating a...

Knife Vs. Pork Covered in Jeans

Just curious, has anyone tried to cut a chunk of pork covered in jeans with a Cricket and a Ladybug? Just curious which one would do the most damage to that chunk of pork.

Spyderco Small Knife For Self Defense?

I have a civilian and delica for self defense but after carrying each one for a couple weeks during the summer I find them that they take too much space and weigh too much for my summer activities. As such, I've actually been leaving behind these knives most of the time. I've therefore been thinking...
