And I used my Dragonfly last week for that exact some purpose. Agreed, that M2 is anything but mundane!

Re: What’s your best made Spydie?

I had a bunch of knives out over the weekend doing some general maintenance and I wondered what is your best made Spydie for sheer build quality? Mine would be my Gayle Bradley in a photo finish with the KW CF/Ti Military. The funny thing is that I use the GB like a workhorse but I hardly ever use ...

Re: KnifeJoker translucent manix2 lw

Unboxed mine yesterday, it’s friggin’ perfect. Perfectly centered, Spyderco sharp, and the action is smooth as glass. Glad this one has hung around for a little while — it was great impulse buy. Edit: Aaaand it’s gone! Looks like the last one has sold. Indeed, one of the better impulse buys I've ma...

Re: KnifeJoker translucent manix2 lw

I'd say, if you didn't get one yet, do it! It's a solid knife and I've been using it in the kitchen all day. Love how I can get all four fingers on the handle but can also choke up on it with the finger choil. I've been sharpening kitchen knives throughout the day and comparing them to the M2.

Used my ZDP-189 Delica to open the packages the Lightweight Teal Manix and ZDP Endura came in. ;)

A friend of mine put granite in his Manix and boy is it smooth.
Use of granite as a dry lube is something I've never heard of. Did you mean graphite?
Oh man, I had to crush the granite to get it small enough to use! Then everything felt really gritty! :eek:

This is pretty awesome. I was going to get the K390 Endela, but I think I will get the blue line Endela instead.
Been wanting a K390 Endela as well but this makes a lot of sense to me. Thinking the thin Red Line version as this hits so close to home.

123 grams vs 82 definitely makes the LW more of an EDC for me.

Actually, I think this would prevent a lot of abrasion to certain materials. Neat!

Re: KnifeJoker translucent manix2 lw

Got mine today and while I can flick it open and closed, it does take a good bit more effort than my Rex45 G10 version. Not drop shutty but centered. I do like the the difference in weight compared to the Rex45 but wish it were easier to operate. There is no blade play, and I'm excited about trying ...

Re: Most Underestimated Steel.

ZDP is interesting because it’s one of the highest end steels that can be sharpened with normal india and crystolon stones to good effect. Most of the other steels in its class require diamond or CBN to achieve the same results. Agreed. I was able to reprofile my ZDP DF2 with much less effort than ...

Yep. 60% Yellow and 40% green Rit dye
Nice, I've decided that I NEED an Endela since the Endura I recently bought is too large for me to legally carry concealed. And, I've been dying to try some K390.
