Re: Switch Gamers

I have bought a used but as good as new Switch as a present for my girlfriend in the summer of 2018. It was the Super Mario Odyssey edition with both Joy Cons in red. Of course Super Mario Odyssey was also included. All in all the Switch came with 5 games, but I'm not 100% sure which games exactly. ...

Re: Why are so many people concerned with perfect blade centering?

I think it has become important for so many people, because you can very easily check if the blade is centered or not. Just look at the knife, and you actually see it with our own eyes. That's very handy if you make a video on YouTube. And to be honest a centered blade looks better than something of...

Re: MuleTeam Giveaway!

I'm in

I hesitated a long time because I'm fairly new to this forum but hey, I own Spyderco products so why not try to get one more.
I don't know if this is self-evident or not but in case I would win, I will pay the shipment cost.

Re: Oh no...

No, automatic knives are not illegal per se. Böker and many other dealers do sell automatic knives in Germany. Just models with blades shorter than 8,5cm. OTFs and butterflies/balisongs are per se illegal, independant of the blade length. Not sure about balisong trainers, but probably the are ok si...

Re: Oh no...

How could I have been so ignorant? Apparently I have successfully blended out for years that there is a length limit to blades of automatic knives in Germany, in order for them to be legal. :( It's 8,5cm. And the Autonomy 1/2 have blades of 9,4/8,9cm. They are illegal in Germany!! :mad: Dang it.......

Re: Shipping from SMKW to Europe

I never have bought any knife outside the European Union. I was always too cowardly because, in my mind, the customs authority (is that the right word?) would knock at my door and ask why I bought a weapon, even if the knife in question is completely legal here. I think I will try Bonvu.com and if e...

So, I called them, and unfortunately they told me that they don't ship to any country inside the European Union. But still thanks for the suggestion, it was worth a try. So, there again is the question, if anyone here has any experience with "BONVU.COM". The service that they offer is basically, tha...

Shipping from SMKW to Europe

Hi, I found a knife, but not Spyderco, related item that is only available on "smkw.com". Or at least I have not found it somewhere else. Unfortunately they only ship inside the USA, and I'm from Germany. So I found "BONVU.COM" and now I'm wondering if anyone here has any experience with their servi...

Re: What "Other" is in your pocket???

photo_2021-02-04_08-18-18.jpg Ah, the ZT 0350. Still one of the best looking knives out there, in my opinion. There is just something about "high", slightly recurve blades. And I personally find the ergonomics on this very nice. It just fits my hand. Somehow I find, that it even fits a left hand be...

Re: Victorinox photo and discussion thread!

I'm a lefty as well, and you are right, the scissors are great even for us. But the best thing about the scissors, in my opinion, are the thin blades. They are really useful for precise cuts.

Re: Happy Index Finger?

Assume that testing for heat near the grind with the "can I hold my finger on it for three seconds" method will keep the heat treat safe... Y'know how when you're grinding, come flying off the edge of the work? So that's the temperature right at the edge. When freehand grinding, keep a can of water...

Re: Victorinox photo and discussion thread!

I edc'd one exclusively for 32 years. They're a great knife! I have to admit, I'm not that long into knives, that there would be the possibility, that I could edc any knife that long. And if I'm completely honest, the most used tool might actually be the scissors and then the actual knives. Most of...

My huntsman with my etched in initials. Not the prettiest job ever done, but it was my first try in etching. This knife is a true EDC for me at least for the past 5 years.

That's something different, than the usual scales. Not my cup of tea but I appreciate the bravery to start a project.

Re: A knife gifted you'd never let go

My parents gave it to me and the same one to my brother. I can't remember how old we have been, but I know, I was surprised that we received knives in such a young age (maybe 10 years old?). Later my dad taught me how to sharpen knives with this knife. Skip forward a few years and this knife was the...

Re: Bleach FRN?

Here it is next to a basically unused Pacific salt. The pics arent good but you should be able to see the color difference. How long did you carry it? I quite like the more gentle yellow. That is getting more towards the color I would like. I think it would take a long time to get it to that color....

Thank you for your input as well. I appreciate that you took your time to compare my knife with your knife, as well as the box and responded to my post. I'm sorry for my persistence with the box, although I already had confirmation for the knife but this is a expensive knife for me and I just wanted...
