Re: Pry Bar

I think 'pry bar' and 'folder' are mutually exclusive.... and so should you. ;)

That being said: AEB-L Lil Native?

Re: Native Chief first and ongoing impressions thread

I didn't had the chance to compare them directly, but I also noticed from photos that the tip might be even thinner than the one on the Military. BTW, nothing wrong with that.

Re: health effects of sharpening

I use soapy water on DMT diamond plates, on Spyderco ceramic stones, on Naniwa Chosera water stones etc etc. Water will catch particles and keep them in the slurry. Out in the field, use your saliva.. Problem (literally) solved.

Re: Which spyderco is in the mail?

This time I am waiting for a smurf blue S90V Military. It's from the US, it will take weeks if not months for it to arrive. But I like it.

Re: Domino 2?

I might be wrong, but I feel like XHP is more abundant than 20CV. At least I don't have any 20CV, but I have multiple XHPs.

At last! I was expecting it soon after the S90V version and now I am glad I passed on that one earlier today. This is more of a user.

Re: Native Chief REX45 and S90V Sprint discussion and ANTICIPATION thread! (not alerts)

I was disappointed this morning, when I inspected the CF/S90V in person. The blade was very off, almost touching the scales and there was a lot of lateral blade play. More than in any other folder I bought before (which is not that much, less than a hundred, including SAKs and Opinels). It was the o...

Re: Which spyderco is in the mail?

Not in the mail, but the Native Chief S90V. I think I can pick it up from the shop today. edit: sadly, I had to leave it in the shop. The blade was off center - and not just a little bit - and there was considerable blade play. I assumed thread-locker was applied, so I didn't feel comfortable asking...

As to the these sharpening videos, they are interesting. I wonder also, how much, if at all, does the grind direction come in to play? Which he mentions in the video.

u.w.

I guess the dotted lines in the screencap mark the direction (at 6000 grit)?

Re: Salt 2 or native 5 salt?

Another vote for the Native and if it will get gross as you say, then definitely the Native, as it is easy to take apart and deep clean properly. Why should the Native Salt be easier to take apart than the also linerless, also backlock, also FRN Salt 2 ?! :confused: Sorry for not being clear.. I wa...
