Re: REX 45 Para - snapped tip!

Here's the Opinel I fixed. If the tip break would have been much larger, I would have had the reshape the curved edge from the bottom so as to avoid getting to close to the nail nick. Something the OP doesn't have to concern themselves with

Re: REX 45 Para - snapped tip!

I'd appreciate any help as it wasn't cheap and it's really bugging me Is it an OCD thing? The knife has essentially the same utility and lifespan it had before and there are a lot of people who would love it just the way it is. :) Joe But many would feel that some functionality is lost if the blade...

Re: Post up your Rit dye projects..

Here's my experiment with PS2. At first, I've used Rid DyeMore (Taupe color) in a boiling water bath with vinegar mixture. Handle was dipped for a long time, but I was not satisfied with the result - it looked like just an "abused dirty yellow knife" (thought that Taupe color would set up darker). ...

Re: What Spyderco is in your pocket today??

Had to stop by Ace Hardware today and spied this G10 Manix 2, it was the last one so they offered me 10% off. So, it rode in my pocket the rest of the day.

Re: Which spyderco is in the mail?

Wanted to try a Dragonfly and also needed something small with a SE for summer carry, so just picked up the H1 SE version. I want one of those with a Hawkbill! But too many exclusives with premium steel being released lately at prices too good to pass up keep sidetracking me. Looking forward to you...

Re: Blade HQ Para 3 LW in M4

Pass, not sure if id do business with blade hq moving forward anyway. Some scandal I missed? I share this concern. Seems that Blade HQ had a data breech sometime back. Luckily I was not contacted by them as being included in that breech but it does make me wonder. I like the knife and the price. Be...

Re: What's your favorite Seki City Blade?

Of the models the OP listed, the Endela. In general, the DF2! Can't pass one by! I'd recommend handling them all first to see which you like best. I had some preconceived notions about how I would dislike some of the bigger models so I never bothered to handle them. Then, one day, I saw an Endela at...

Re: Cru-wear Dragonfly with OD FRN Scales @ DLT

ASF, nice!

Gotta admit, the black blade goes nicely with the Zome scales.

I've got a green Zome DF2 that the black blade would look good on too.

Re: FRN Take Over...

Say what you want but, especially in the Summer when I am wearing lightweight materials, there's a big difference in how comfortable a LW N5 is vs. say, a G10 Manix 2. I'm just glad I have the option and can afford to own both types.

Re: I really want to pick up a serrated K390 model when they drop: Endura or Endela?

I love the Endura but can't carry one, so I carry an Endela instead. While it carries even smaller than the Endura, with the K390 blade, I don't really feel like I am giving up any cutting power. If you haven't already handles an Endela, do so. If it feels good to you, try it. If not, then the Endur...

Re: Shout out to DLT Trading!

In addition to some real nice exclusives at reasonable prices, I think DLT does do something better than most; they ship same day on every order I have placed. Other retailers sometimes take several days or more just to generate a shipping label. So, while the carrier ultimately has control over whe...

K390 Endela with Lynchnw deep carry clip is my (current) all time favorite carry knife! It's with me 7 days a week.
Yeah, I think if I would have bought an Endela to start with, especially the K390, I might not have bought a dozen other models, lol. What fun would that have been?

Re: Endela Popularity

Until seeing that other thread, I didn't realize the Endela is only 2 years old. That K390 blade make sit an awesome cutting machine.
