Re: Straight Spine Stretch

Would love to see an LC200N ‘Salt Stretch’ in the original blade configuration.

Here’s a question. Is the Salt 2 going to get the FFG green handled LC200N treatment? That would be a very much used knife by me. Both PE and SE.
I hope so....and I hope we get a Wharnie as well. The wharnie has become my EDC.

Re: So what's your top 3 favorite steels? and why?

1. LC200N (more in linerless FRN, please)

2. H1 (in serrated)

3. VG-10 (for an all-around cost-effective choice)

My EDC is a linerless Delica Wharncliffe in S30V (oddly enough). But that is only because it is not offered in LC200N...yet!!

Re: Is the Siren a Salt?

All I'm going to say is during these years of liner vs no liner debates, I've yet to hear someone bring up a use case that a linered knife can perform that a linerless can't. If you prefer the heft or feel, that's cool, but there isn't anything Endura 4's can do that E3's can't. Knives with liners ...

Re: Is the Siren a Salt?

My opinion on the liner vs linerless knives is that a folder is really not intended for 'hard use'. Sure, some folders can handle more 'hard use' than other folders, but all pale in comparison to fixed blade knives. So, to me, the linerless is perfect...since it is lightweight, can handle normal use...

Re: Is the Siren a Salt?

Definitely on my 'to buy' list.

Just curious, but which do you prefer, Lance? The Waterway or The Siren when you're out on the Kayak.

Re: Riddle me this!

Ok, one more example. You have 100 doors and one of them has a prize. You select a door. The host then gives you a chance to switch your 1 door for ALL the other 99. Do you switch? Of course you do. Now lets add one more step in. This time you also get to select 1 door. There is a 1% chance you hav...

Re: Riddle me this!

Fair enough. If we ever end up in a casino and someone is playing this game then you can bet on the guy that draws one card and I’ll take the guy who has 51. It will probably work out 50/50 like you are imagining. Bring your ATM card just in case though. :p Clearly I’m being a smartass (hopefully i...

Re: Riddle me this!

When you choose a door initially, you have a 1/3 chance of selecting the winning door. Once a losing door (of the other two) has been eliminated, when you change your choice to the remaining door, you have in essence selected both doors...giving you a 2/3 chance of selecting the winning door. With ...

Re: Riddle me this!

If it's between doors 1 and 2, you have a 50% chance regardless. What am I missing? Just like if you flip a coin 10 times and get heads every time. The probability of getting heads on the 11th toss is still 50%. When you choose a door initially, you have a 1/3 chance of selecting the winning door. ...

Yeah...I agree. It's an interesting problem. What information you have and WHEN you have it is important.
BTW, Your hockey puck problem is super interesting...and challenging. I know we have to start by weighing 4 pucks vs 4 pucks...and then go from there. Anyway...

Oooh I love these. My favourite one is the Monty Hall problem: Suppose you're on a game show, and you're given the choice of three doors: Behind one door is a car; behind the others, goats. You pick a door, say No. 1, and the host, who knows what's behind the doors, opens another door, say No. 3, w...

I will take any of the salt models in FFG LC200N, but I really want a wharncliffe salt.

Pacific Salt FFG in LC200N has been in the works for a few years now.
Yes, I know. The current salt models in FFG LC200N would just be the perfect EDC knives for me (and many others, I would guess).

Re: When will we see more LC200N in linerless FRN?

I have the native 5 salt. It's a fine knife, but I'd like to have some other options (wharncliffe, different handle options, etc). I'm pretty sure it's coming, but I though it would be here sooner. It probably just shows my ignorance in terms of how long it takes for an idea to get to market.
