Re: What did you get for Xmas?

Gave myself a Szabohawk and a Domino. Jeff from Cutleryshoppe was kind enough to drive to FedEx himself to post the package, since he couldn't get through their phone system. Surprisingly enough, the package arrived on the 24th, which is the day Santa distributes the gifts in Germany, so everything ...

Re: The Ozzies Are Back!! And Wire Clip Update Suggestions.

Good to hear that ridiculous restrictions are being rescinded!
They happen to be my pet peeve and I'm glad you celebrated by ordering a knife which may have been difficult to import beforehand!

Cheers,

Re: A Special Thanks to EvilD and Spydernut

Congrats, Doc, it's good to hear you stopped, well done!

It took me several tries and lots of nicotine plasters, but by now I must be off the stuff for 10 years or so. It did take years for the craving to fade away completely, though...

Re: Are Spyderco prices getting out of your reach?

That's true, but I have the feeling that the European collectors, who are willing to buy the higher-end models, are quite disappointed with Spdercos price policy. The European prices are absolutely ridiculous, I know a lot of old Spyderco afis across the pond who started boycotting Spyderco because...

Great tips, guys, thank you!
Don't have two 1200 DMT folding sharpeners yet, but that's easily remedied.

Re: Wisdom tooth extraction: Ouch! Anyone else had it done?

My dentist told me many years ago, the two lower wisdom teeth will have to be removed. He managed to convince me to them one at a time and not both at the same time, which was my truly harebrained idea. Later on, I was glad he was so graphic and managed to convince me. Ok, got rid of the first one, ...

Re: Klotzli: A Swiss Treasure

JD, good of you to start that thread, thank you! Klotzli make some excellent knives. Btw, it's really Klötzli or Kloetzli, one of those nasty German umlauts! But that's beside the point, knife lovers know their products. I happen to have two, a folder and a fixed blade, but no pics of the folder. He...

Re: Is this dealer have a good rep. Newbee

I can certainly recommend Cutlery Shoppe from long experience. My first order stems from the early nineties, lots of Cold Steels, by letter snail mail. Jeff has always been very friendly and helpful, reserving items for me until I told him to ship the whole order in one go in the internet age, which...

Re: Protection while walking

For sure :). The non-telescoping one in the "economy" version is only like $90. Polymer ribs and a non-hardwood handle. Funny thing is I bought mine as a total gimmick (I think I was drinking ). It ended up being just a super high quality umbrella with a dual-purpose. I usually take it downtown in ...

Re: Spyderco closer to Europe

Understand and appreciate Elena86's post. For the last few years, I've bought Spydies only from US shops. Even with freight charges and german custom charges they were usually much cheaper than the same Spydies offered in Europe. So far, I've never had so return a Spydie to Golden. To avoid having t...
