The Squeak is a great knife. It is very comfortable in my hand and cuts great. The blade is very thin, and the steel takes a very good edge. I havent used it enough to truly test the edge retention. This knife has replaced my ZDP Dragonfly. The wider handle, spine to choil, fills my hand better and ...

I have to say this new Squeak from my initial impressions is going to be a cutting demon. http://i78.photobucket.com/albums/j94/dm_gangl/DSC02435.jpg Looking at the blade it is actually right at if not thinner behind the edge then my Caly Jr. ZDP. The blade polished up very easily. Took about the sa...

Yeah other then the tip issue this knife is excellent. Extremely comfortable three finger grip that locks into your hand. The lock up is very tight. I have no blade play either. This is my first slip joint, and I am very pleased. This is my first chance to try out N690Co. If the steel performs well,...

Just Got my Squeak, and quick question

I got my Squeak today and am very excited to use this knife. I did find one problem, and I figured I would give Spyderco a heads up. When I pulled the knife out of the box I noticed the tip of the edge was rolled. I figured no problem fixed it and I'm enjoying the knife very much. But sitting here p...

A very good point. Like the saying goes, "You never rise to the occasion, you fall back on your training"

http://www.knivesshipfree.com/images/brkcity/City_Knife_in_City_Sheath_600.jpg Im going to have to agree with Chuck on this. The City knife is a nice looking one. You can get it in 154CM or the Essential in M4. I have also considered the streetbeat in an ankle sheath. But for a suit, IDK about an a...

As an experienced shooter. I will give this advice to any one considering buying a gun for defense. There is no "the best gun" or "best brand of gun". Go to a shooting range try out several different models and see which is more comfortable for you. @ stepping down from my soap box @ For a me agains...

DMT stones lets talk

Im looking at getting some new stones to try out a new setup for reprofiling my knives. I have a couple of DMT stones in mind, but I'm not the most knowledgeable about DMT. The main question I have is which are better. The Dia-sharp continuous stones or the Diamond hones with the holes in the stone?...

Calypso 2?

I also have another idea/question. I know many people had a problem with the blade warping. I wonder how a full hollow grind and swedge would work to avoid the blade warping. This would allow a thin edge and the superior slicing ability the Calypso line is known for while adding a little lateral str...
