Re: The 75 Pacer....

I do love a good trailing point. I guess the question is do we get this smaller Pacer or the Rhino Grande and Lil’ Temp trailing point first.

My vote’ll always be for more rhino all the time unfortunately.

Re: The Shark Hunter

If they put some watu style holes in the handle or some other way to make it a proper spear tip then great. Spyderco makin’ more cutting tools is good. Although the waterway kinda does all of my fixed blade things and then some. So I likely wouldn’t pick it up, it’d fill the same odd niche the whale...

Re: Lanyard tube rattle --a common thing?

Common in all the spidies I’ve had. Most models that don’t use the tube as a connector work fine (or better) without the tube in my experience. The spydiechef in particular looks great without the tube.

Re: Use of word "patina" by knife enthusiasts

I see your point, but what annoys me more is people use the word patina in the knife world referring exclusively to rust. Wish it applied further, as my Caribbean is developing quite the patina at work :D Also I’m assuming this confusion described is because most people’s first encounter of the word...

Re: Bleach FRN?

Do y’all think putting frn scales in a UV decontamination box would speed the discoloration along? Interesting idea. I wonder if this would work without damaging the knife? The sun will heat up the knife and open up the FRN so it can be bleached by the sun. I'm not certain about your suggestion, bu...

Putting a bookmark on this one since the HH ukpk is the only financially reasonable way to get a ukpk with a full length backspacer :D

Reveal 7, a what now?

Am I the only only one entirely blindsided by this reveal, I didn’t expect really any of these reveals. ESPECIALLY that Viele Phoenix sprint.

I mean, all the k390 and salt additions are spectacular. Especially that uk penknife. But most of these seemingly came out of left field.

Re: Knife lubricating agents

10 weight nano-oil (I think that’s what you’re using) works great but you have to be super careful with the amount you use. If you Nick Shabazz it and drown your washers in oil you’ll attract quite a lot of grime, but the cool thing about nano-oil is that you need almost none for full effect. Try ju...

Re: Para Military 2 Titanium

Fluted with integral lock. There were prototypes made years ago. These would sell well so I am unsure why they have never reached production? Oh man I wish there were some integral comp locks still in the lineup. A pm2 or a para 3 with an integral Ti comp lock would be glorious. Or hey since the Sa...

The digi-camo para 3’s got cqi coated liners. It would be nice if it spread to the rest of the lineup.

K390 is not a difficult steel to sharpen, you could probably touch it up on the bottom of a coffee mug if you wanted.

Re: Who also wants a hump?

Love that design. Especially on something smaller or without any gimping or choils or anything like that. It would also help with tip strength I’d think. I always wondered why the Jester disappeared, it seems like such a useful design. If one showed back up in the lineup in some more steel options I...

Still waiting on an lc200n blade beaten within an inch of its life to get posted here. Maybe I’ll just have to wait for my work knife to get some more hours in.
