There. That ought to keep it at bay for the next week.

Today's the ubiquitous C36. I can't do without it.

Re: Spydercos you pair with NON Spydercos (inspired by Cambertree) - pics appreciated!

i've been pairing these two a lot lately when i don't carry my caribbean. i have to say, as much as i love my spydercos, the avispa always makes me feel like an idiot for paying more than $50 for a folding knife. it's perfectly capable and a great design. i'm thinking about picking up a second one....

I’m curious if this trend in low-grit edges is causing people to reevaluate S30V. That steel is now seen as “boring”, but I hear it responds well to coarse grits. So, any newfound love for S30V?
I think Larrin's edge testing contributed to S30V's newest spike in popularity.

Re: Community Sharpening Journal

Sometimes I wonder why I ever polish over 500 grit . Edge longevity takes such a hard hit stepping up from 400 grit to the 1,000 grit range, and past that I feel like I need to sharpen daily. Saw the same thing in my 10" Victorinox chef knife. I've tried a raw 200 grit diamond edge, medium shaprmak...

Re: What "others" are in the mail?

Edit as my usual supplier told me they're remaking their Tops assortment : Desert Nomad out of inventory, so I swapped my order to a Hults small axe, a Silky Gomboy, a puck and a monocular for a small extra dough. Looking forward to trying these out on my next overnighter :D Might try to live with a...

Re: Who´d like to teach (me/us) proper English?!

But there are quite a few words in our dialect for which there are just no real equivalents in high German. Are there identical words with different meanings? In English, these are some of my favorites. A toboggan, for example is a sled for use on snow (generally recreationally, by children) in mos...

Re: Spydercos you pair with NON Spydercos (inspired by Cambertree) - pics appreciated!

When out and about, it's usually the TOPS Tanimboca on my belt or in my kitbag, and the Millie in my pocket. https://files.catbox.moe/e4fdp4.jpg In an everyday setting, because I always carry two blades, the Millie (again) in my pocket, and a Higonokami in my pack as a secondary. Will edit later wit...

Re: "Either" vs. "too" vs "al

"Either" vs "too" vs "also" Like in: "I own an Endura too"; "I own an Endura either" "I also own an Endura" "I own an Endura also" - When/how to use which term? ‘I own an Endura too’ is a little ambiguous as it could mean either ‘I own an Endura like you do’, or, ‘I also own an Endura (as well as a...

Military fans, what's your favorite task where 4" of blade comes handy?

I wonder if a purple dlt Cruwear is in the works
Literally every task with a knife as comfortable as this one. Food prep and dicing greens is the one thing it is really bad at.

Re: What are you listening to?

The band that made me fall in love with metal music as a 12-13 year old kid. Still to this day, I think Anselmo is one of the best to ever do it. So much power and passion in his vocals, but also very clear so you can understand the lyrics (which admittedly, a lot of the stuff I listen to...I have ...

Re: What Spyderco is in your pocket today??

https://i.postimg.cc/pTDQ5cpj/20210217-123214-HDR.jpg I've seen that cover art somewhere... Today's a Police day. Put the C36 in the kitchen drawer on a whim yesterday evening. Getting used to switching between both, though the Millie's sturdiness still sways me. https://files.catbox.moe/hdtwfv.jpg...
