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

There’s only one thing worse than an uneven grind, and that’s knowing it’s uneven and the accompanying disappointment.

Re: What is your favorite scale color between Burnt Orange or Blurple?

I don’t have either, but voted blurple as I think it would have a greater appeal long term. No strong preference either way really.

Re: Best blade thickness for a small fixed blade?

I use a Fallkniven Kolt a bit and it’s very thick (3.8mm) and I could use something thinner. 2.5mm sounds good, not sure I would want to go too much thinner.

Re: Gayle Bradley 2

My copy also had a lock stick, that persisted throughout the honeymoon phase. Now I am doing a one-knife-only-for-a-month challenge with it and the lock stick is gone. I mean, completely gone. Thanks kobold for the reply. That’s great to know. I now use the fingernail and tip of my thumb, and I thi...

Re: Gayle Bradley 2

Not that it's lock-related, but this would have been "the knife" for me if only aside from the lock stick, the dismal detent issue would also have been avoided. My detent is such that I can actually flick open the knife by just snapping my wrist with a moderate amount of force. If only my copy had ...

Re: Gayle Bradley 2

I totally missed that in your original post. My bad. The lock is definitely the low point in the design. I'd like to see a CQI where they make it easier to access and actuate and smooth out the pointy bits. The knife would be a 10/10 No problem. :) I agree, the lock is the only negative for me and ...

Re: Gayle Bradley 2

Mine was sticky as well. Take a pencil and with the knife closed, draw on the part of the blade where the lock catches when the blade is open. It took a few applications for it to take permanent, but it smoothed it right up immediately. Thanks WRB. Have tried that, but it didn’t help with this one.

Re: Webex with Sal and Eric?

I voted yes as I would be interested to put a question or two to sal, though I don’t know what Webex or Zoom are.

Re: Gayle Bradley 2

With my thumb on the scale, I squeeze the locking liner with my index finger. This is how Michael Christy does it around the two-minute mark in the video below. https://youtu.be/xbuGMQPN4rs Thanks mikey. That or pinching between thumb and index of the left hand is the only way at present. Even then...

Mine was very sticky, sometimes had to use quite a bit of force to unlock it. It is now smooth and easy to unlock. Just takes a bit of break in.
Thanks, that’s something positive then.
