I use mine about once or twice a week. I started using it to open boxes since I ended up cutting way too deep with my folder. I've cut into the stuff inside and nicked my edge.

My preference is 30 degrees, inclusive for just about everything. I've got some vg-10 kitchen knives that are 20 degrees but it rolls with any misuse. I'm using paper wheels to sharpen and I've always had a tough time making sure the burrs are gone, so my edges could be more prone to rolling than ot...

The edge on mine couldn't shave hair out of the box. One of the rare few that's ever come from Spyderco that way. Not that I ever keep the stock edge anyway but otherwise perfect.

According to another article, "Officials later revealed the student was suspended because he didn't cooperate with the investigation. The boy's mother said she believes her son wouldn't reveal the details to police because he was "born and raised" not to "snitch."" So I guess this "crime" overshadow...

I've noticed that on a few of the Para 2s I have benefited from tightening the stop pin further. I didn't think to shorten it though, well done.

The Southard was designed as a flipper period! Yes, you can open it by the thumb hole but in no means should it be judged by such. IT WAS NOT DESIGNED FOR THUMB HOLE DEPLOYMENT! Does anyone that actually uses the Southard for day to day work think it needs dual choils or sharp jimping? I have beat ...

I got mine a week ago and I've been playing with it for a just a bit. First impression, F&F is superb; the guys in Taiwan did it again. Every edge is rounded perfectly and polished, every surface fit together seamlessly. Pivot action is smooth as if it came already broken in. There's no hint of grit...

Sorry Tony, I declare M4 the winner ;) Used my Air for 6 hours of wrapping, including a dozen of those things (stocking stuffers for the grandkids) Really worked great. I've used ZDP in the past and I really think the Air did a better job. It'll be with me tomorrow as well. Ken My Manix 2 in M4 got...

It's typical for back locks to start a little stiff. It will smooth out in time so no worries there. I don't have a LW M2 so I can't compare but I've always like the finish on my Caly3.5 clip. It's not shiny so it doesn't attract attention and I prefer how sandblasted look wears compared to a polish...

I agree with Blev except I use my Aeropress with the paper filters. I just pre-soak the filter to get rid of any paper filter taste. Even so, there's nothing quite as easy, fast, and smooth as the Areropress. I gave up my french press, Keurig, drip machines, and percolator for this simple little too...

I have a beater Manix 2 that I use around the house. I've dug, pried, cut, chopped, left outside, and generally used it w/o giving it a 2nd thought. Aside from a bent tip and frequent sharpening sessions, it's held up just fine. I just bent the tip back and it's hardly noticeable.

From a design stand point, what's supposed keep the lock from sliding back off the tang? Is it lock bar pressure inwards or the geometry of the lock interface?
