Re: Lc200N PM2 and Para 3

Salt me a PM2 and call it what ever you like, but I vote for seafarer. I would have suggested mariner, but that was already used. I would like it in dark navy, just because that is my favourite colour. If not, something that can still be rit dyed dark navy. Toxic green G10 could be fun. Might be tem...

Re: Smock grind issue [uneven hollow grind to transition line]

As has been said before, this is not a $20 knife. It is a premium production folder. I think there is the expectation that a $250 (cdn) knife has BOTH excellent aesthetics and function. Anyone who jumps on someone for being disappointed in a fairly significant deviation in symetry probably has a lot...

Check this out. Rm26 is about $6 USD. I contacted the seller and he or she insists it is legit. Oh brother.
Do not test the sharpness by finger!!!

Okay, I won't.

Re: This is devotion...

That is cool!

My pockets are all deep enough, but I am actually trying to figure out how to sew a patch of canvas or thin leather on my pockets for the clip to ride on to avoid wear and tear on the pocket. I have a few pairs of jeans that are getting a little ratty under the clip.

Re: Wildland Firefighters Knife

that is neat. I was thinking something more like a strap cutter, less moving parts. but if that idea could be engineered, it would certainly be cool. Is there a standard (or maximum) size for the wire typically encountered in the wild? I would presume fencing guage? Did you have a specific lock in m...

Re: Wildland Firefighters Knife

What if the wire cutter was integrated into the handle with a replaceable tool steel cutting edge? then it could be independent from the working blade and replace it when it gets worn, dull, or rusted? For such a great idea I will take serial number 004. I figure fireman should get 001, Sal 002, som...

Re: Fruitless search, it was right there the whole time

While it wasn't really your point, the idea of owning just one knife is very appealing. I was a minimalist, until I got married. Whoa!!! Don't go getting me kicked off the forum for preaching minimalism and some one knife malarky. :D But seriously, I almost feel like I am there. I don't know that I...

Re: Fruitless search, it was right there the whole time

Good story, Erik. For me, I don’t know if the ‘perfect’ knife even exists. There are a few that seem to come close; G10 Manix 2, Endela, and some others. Perhaps even the new LC200N SE Pacific Salt might be “the one”. But so far, there has always been something, often even undefinable, that has kep...

Re: Fruitless search, it was right there the whole time

Organizing things and assigning categories or roles, is important to me, but tends to over-complicate things. The grass is always greener... This was my approach for a long time. I needed this model to do something, and this steel would be better for something else, and ... But at the end of the da...

Fruitless search, it was right there the whole time

PM2.JPG I will admit, I obsess about things. Most of my hobbies and interests have resulted in an over-abundance of spending and collecting. The same is true of knives. I got my first spyderco about 10 years ago, an Endura. I really liked it, but at the time I didn't love it. Then about 8 years ago...

Re: Spyderco Face Mask (now bandana, hat and patch)

I like ball caps, but prefer my "adventure" hats. The all around brim keeps off sun and rain.

I think a colaboration with Tilley would be awesome for hats, as they already have the gear and skills to make them.

Re: Straight Razor from Spyderco

This is akin to the box cutter discussion. All of these, including the regular knives, are luxury items. They are all doing something that a MUCH cheaper tool could do. But we will buy them, and use them, and rave about them. Even if we have little bits of toilet paper stuck to our face while we are...

Re: Weird Streaks on PM2 S110V

I get marks like that from my ken onion work sharp when sharpening if I don't put tape on the blade. The blade runs against a guide surface which picks up tiny bits of discarded steel and abrasive which in turn creat tiny scratches parallel to the edge as you pull it through. Another good reason to ...
