Re: Wireless earbuds

Are earbuds with transparency mode worth it I didn’t think so until I bought The Airpod Pros Huge upgrade over the first/second gen form factor. Transparency mode (and full noise cancellation mode) works great. I do a bunch of business on phone while mobile, so these are the greatest thing since sl...

Re: Who owns a Hanan?

I have owned and used a Hanan since October. My only real gripe is the “thick-ish” grind. The flipping action on mine was not good out of the box. Pretty much like everybody else has experienced. I used a pin vise and a pointy diamond burr to barely widen the detent hole in the blade by hand. Night...

Re: Exclusive Delica - Carbon Fiber with HAP40/SUS410

Mine is scratched at almost all the screw locations around the scales. It looks like it was rushed thru production, or the tech didn’t give the CF the necessary attention to prevent cosmetic damage. Mine looked new/untouched otherwise. I’m happy to keep it as-is because at the price I paid, I can li...

Tomorrow is 2020. Wow can't believe I am actually typing that one!

Re: Early days thoughts on the Brouwer

The Brouwer hits on many of the things that I like...and I agree with much of what’s already been covered. I carry it un clipped in my pocket, so the stock clip works for me, although I wish it was titanium to better fit with the other materials on the knife. I do have an issue with the lock bar on ...

Re: Is there support for an LC200N Street Beat?

I rarely have the occasion to slay a pig carcass while washing up after a long day.

If I ever found the need to carry a sharp bladed object in the most unnecessary place, it might be the H1 Ark. It has more bite than Irish Spring.

Re: Shaman Cru-Wear Sprint Run release ?

Thanks for the welcome message. It was food for thought relative to highly anticipated sprint runs or other in demand designs. It could be a nice strategy for select/special releases. I’ve done something similar in a previous life when demand was high, but customers were sensitive to significant pri...

Re: Shaman Cru-Wear Sprint Run release ?

I wonder if the leadership team has considered Spyderco making the reveal announcement in concert with a specific time and day that it will be available at all customer purchase channels. That is really easy to say, and very difficult to do. Not much different than when a certain tech company releas...

Re: An Ambitious Design

If it were me I'd take the whole knife apart, put the two liners and scales together, and grind down the front of the handle until the plunge line and edge are exposed. That makes sense to do, but it does seem odd that this appears to be the way the knife was designed versus being out of spec. Ther...

Re: An Ambitious Design

I would suggest taking the knife apart and grind a sharpening choil in the blade If you do that then you will be sharpening even less of the cutting edge, as there will be less cutting edge total, and things can get caught up in that notch when cutting them. I know it bugs you OP, but I wouldn't wo...

An Ambitious Design

Can anyone shed some light on the positioning of the plunge grind on the Ambitious? It lies covered up within the liners/finger guard area on mine. I think it's intentional, because the stock photos hint at that positioning. Regardless, it looks like you can't really get all the blade when sharpenin...

Re: A question or two about the Li'l Temperance 3

Well described by others already...I would describe the detent as snappy. Very deliberate in such a way that you know it's open (or closed) by the sound and feel. It's one of the knives that I could probably open/close in the dark, while upside down with my hands behind my back. The blade is always ...
