Re: ROCK JUMPER - Mr. Janich's Opinion for Yojimbo's Backup

Great cringe worthy flick seeing as how I'm so paranoid of getting stabbed or badly cut. Became a Peter Coyote fan after that.

Re: Siren

I would dearly like a serrated Siren. Kinda like a matching set type of thing. When surf fishing I always carry one of each edge type. Sure, I could get by quite handily with a PE Siren and a serrated LC200N Pac Salt, but pairing with a serrated Siren would be a more elegant solution......especially...

Re: Wharncliffe's

Will the hollow be on the presentation side or off side? As a rightie I would prefer the hollow on the off side.

Re: Siren

Nice pics.

Nice fish.

Intimidating looking gills for PE.

Did you use the Siren to bleed it or something with teeth?

Gonna order an LC200N SE Pac Salt 2 but I still want a Siren with teeth.

Re: Wharncliffe's

Hi Sal--- I really look forward to threads like this where functional beauty is at the forefront of discussion. In general, it seems to me that appreciation for a well executed high hollow grind has waned over the past decade or two. I really like the way they slice through flesh. Less drag. Over th...

Re: Community Sharpening Journal

One of the reasons I like LC200N so much is the flexible balance of properties. Seems you can do either sticky coarse or smooth hair whittling push cut polished with this steel. I take my SpydieChef beyond DMT green, tho.

Re: Para 3 Impressions

I'm a bit surprised that you haven't played around with S110V. Before LC200N came along I would have guessed it would have found a place given your lifestyle even tho it's not really tough steel. Very corrosion resistant and seems to like the coarse grits you use. I paid my money for the carbides to...

Re: H-1 Questions

No reason to feel like the odd man out. Serrated 8Cr13MoV probably doesn't get the recognition it deserves by many American consumers, but there's this guy Sal Sumthin' or Nuther. I hear he knows a thing or three about knives. Says he's gonna release four serrated 8Cr13MoV Wharnies in different siz...

Re: H-1 Questions

Welcome to the forum Kale! I may be the odd man out here. I have used SE H-1 fairly extensively, and if I'm being brutally honest, I haven't found it to have any sort of magical edge retention whatsoever. In fact, for me it behaves exactly as I would have expected a somewhat soft, austenitic stainl...

Re: LC200N / Caribbean SE torture test gauntlet of death

I really hope Spyderco takes note of your modified sheepsfoot Caribbean. To my eyes it's the most beautiful and elegant wharncliff I've ever seen.

Re: Ouchie! Ouchie!

Finally, a thread that i can weigh in on as an expert. I’m not proud of it, but last Week Tuesday the heel of my d2 chef knife caught a right hand finger. Didn’t feel a thing. Only noticed it by the blood. Thursday nite, I sent the edge of an AEB-l honosuke into a left finger. A very sharp, very to...

Re: Sharpmaker and S110v?

I don't worry about it. I got it for the carbides. 600 mesh DMT and call it good. If I want polished push cut hair whittling I'll grab another knife with a more responsive steel. Not gonna waste time trying to achieve polished push cut on S110V. Not that it can't be done. I'm just not willing to put...

From what I'm about to propose, some may think I'm crazy. At the very least it's totally subjective and unscientific. At the worst, I'm totally bonkers and gone off the deep end. When you cut yourself, SOME STEELS HURT MORE THAN OTHERS. There, I've said it. My head tells me it's mostly about the edg...

EDC vs WEDC

I know for many there would be considerable overlap, but for newbies does anyone consider it beneficial to differentiate between plain ole regular EDC's and Work EDC's (WEDC's)?

Re: Next SE Sprint Run Desired?

Amen on the serrated Siren. To distinguish it from the PE model, replacing the blue G-i0 liner with toxic green (chartreuse in the fishing world) would add that extra little touch of elegance.

Re: What happened with the mantra?

Finds the most time in my pocket for good reason. The most compact and stout 3.2" bladed folder in my collection. Since it isn't as tall as the Mantra 1, it isn't as slicey due to a more obtuse primary grind, but because of that it is more stout and ready to tackle more hard use applications should ...

Caribbean, but I'd get the sheepsfoot and modify it. I really haven't found it to be any less versatile than the leaf and I prefer the lower blade tip. https://hosting.photobucket.com/albums/ee275/EVIL85SSP/Knives/Spyderco%20Caribbean%20Sheepsfoot/.highres/20200216_115436_zpslwlgpcxp.jpg I really l...

Re: Ball Bearing lock redux?

I have appreciation for the locking mechanism on the Sage 3 (Blackie Collins design) but it really doesn't feel the same as the captive ball bearing lock, there's a roughness to it that I think is inherent in the design (it's basically a round bar moving into the slot in the blade). I think the BBL...
