Re: Funny or weird things caught on camera

Scooter rider in China.

Not funny so much as puzzling. What was this guy on? Or maybe he was so mad about something he couldn’t think straight. Or he was simply dumb.

Funny or weird things caught on camera

Funny (as long as it isn’t happening to YOU) or weird stuff caught on camera (security cameras, CCTV, or whatever).

My personal favorite starts at around 2:47.

Re: Blue Loctite and FRN

Strangely enough, I’ve never had the pivot screw on a Seki (or Golden) model come loose (yet). I do change clip positions occasionally. The blue Loctite I use is in a small bottle. I only dab a tiny bit from the bottle tip onto the screw threads, then before I insert the screw, I dab the screw threa...

Re: Pac salt green frn lc200n shipping to dealers!

I decided to enlist the new pac salt in the perpetual battle against my jungle of a backyard. I used my seasoned vet (the H1 pac salt 2) for the front/side yard, then the new recruit (the lc200n pac salt) for the back. Full disclosure: it wasn't a completely fair comparison because the h1 needs to ...

Re: How About A High Caliber Hawkbill?

Unfortunately, G-10 Seki models tend to be overly-expensive. And they would most likely have to be made by Moki; I don’t know if G. Sakai (Spyderco’s main Seki maker) even works with G-10 or not. A better option might be to have them made in either Golden or Taichung. I would assume the G10 Dragonf...

Re: How About A High Caliber Hawkbill?

Ti handles would be good. Although the only Ti-handled knives I have are plain-jane (without inserts) CRK knives. As long as the handle is ergonomically-shaped, that would work very well for me.

Re: How About A High Caliber Hawkbill?

IMO, a G-10 hawkbill with FFG, LC200N blade would be awesome. With the less-aggressive serrations, like on the Endela. As far as I’m concerned, the G-10 could even be without liners. That would make it almost a Salt knife. Unfortunately, G-10 Seki models tend to be overly-expensive. And they would m...

Re: Favorite movie fight scenes

The Young Avenger (1980, Hong Kong). Director: Wilson Tong. Action directors: Wilson Tong & Wong Siu-Yu. Full movie. Director Wilson Tong, who also plays the arch-villain, is probably familiar to casual fans who may recognize his face from a small role in Enter the Dragon, as one of Han’s men, who g...

Re: Wharncliffe's

I like Wharncliffe blades, mostly smaller blades. Length-wise, I probably wouldn’t want one for myself with a blade much over 3”.

Re: Martial Arts Experiences Discussion Thread

My first introduction to Mark was actually American samurai back in the 90s and double dragons. American samurai made a huge impression on me as a kid. Of course being a kid I enjoyed double dragons too. I used to play the video game and watch the cartoon. I have a lot of respect for Mark and watch...

Re: High Hollow Grind

Has Spyderco ever done a hollow grind that goes into the opening hole? If the hollow grind stops before the opening hole starts, it’s a hollow sabre grind in my mind. James Y - I still have a Liner Action here somewhere, that did have a beautiful grind. Pity mine is partly serrated and the lock now...

Re: Martial Arts Experiences Discussion Thread

Horse stance is the basis of all martial arts. Without horse stance you have nothing. On a more serious note Mark Dacascos has a lot of experience in horse stance. Also a very interesting journey that leads back to horse stance. Jump to about 7:00 and 16:40 for horse stance. If you have the time it...

Re: Fairly comprehensive list of Spyderos in movies, tv shows, etc

The 1995 movie Sudden Death is already listed with a Standard/Economy SS SE. I'm kind of new around here and I'm not sure what that would be, but in the picture below Jean-Claude Van Damme has flicked open what I think may be an early Endura SE which he uses to cut a wire on a bomb. Yellow or black...

Legend (2015; UK, France). Director: Brian Helgeland. IMO, Legend ranks among the best, and most underrated, gangster films of all time. The story of the Kray twins, Reggie and Ronnie, both played by Tom Hardy, one of the very best character actors. The way Hardy portrayed both twins, each with his ...

Re: High Hollow Grind

The highest hollow grind I’ve ever had on a knife was on my old (and long-discontinued) Kershaw Liner Action drop point. The hollow grind on that went all the way to the blade spine. It was the first modern one-hand-opening folder I ever bought, not long before I got my first Spyderco, back in 1997....
