Re: What is your dominant hand / forum statistics

I started using my left hand for a lot of things as a kid, but one of the things that really pushed my “fine work” ambidexterity were the years I worked as a stenographer (court reporter and real-time captioner for hearing-impaired). To even qualify for the national exam, you had to achieve a speed ...

Re: A Tale of Two Hawkbills

If I were to do this write up the title would be "The Tale of 22 Hawkbills". Actually I have had more than that over the years but I think that's close to what I have in my footlocker now as we speak. Even though I have what some might perceive as an unhealthy obsession for the Spyderhawk model I s...

Re: Favorite movie fight scenes

Duel to the Death (1983; filmed in South Korea & Hong Kong). Directors: Ching Siu-Tung & Lee Hyung-Po. Action directors: Ching Siu-Tung & Lau Chi-Ho. Many years ago, my response to this movie was lukewarm, mostly because of the extremely fantastical nature of the fight scenes. But over the years, I'...

I thought that Spyderco doesn’t release the HRC hardness stats.

Re: What is your dominant hand / forum statistics

I clicked on right-handed, which I am for writing and eating, but I throw a ball and other things equally (and sometimes better) left-handed. Going a bit OT, I'm completely ambidextrous in striking with my hands. As far as operating a knife, I am definitely right-handed, but a few years ago when I w...

Re: Fellow reptile lovers??

We have snakes in my immediate area, but I just don’t see them. AFAIK, no rattlers, though. Mainly, the reptiles I do see, when I see them, are alligator lizards, which I’ve always liked a lot. They look kinda like snakes with legs, and when I do see them, I let them do whatever they do in the food...

The small Inkosi is a great knife. I like mine enough that I hope to get a large Inkosi one day. I prefer the small Inkosi to my small 21, and the Inkosi design over the Sebenza in general.

Re: Sydney fires

Well, at least there’s some hopefully good news there, Bloke! And also, hopefully the rain might help a bit to clear the air of particulates from the fires, as well as supply you with a good source of water.

It almost sound like it could have been named S32.5V? However, it does sound good to me. :)
