Re: A Tale of Two SD Knives

As VooDooChild said, the Chinook comes from the Bowie school of knife combatives. Keating is longtime proponent of Bowie fighting skills. He and Bagwell are big on the back cut which is really only doable with a Bowie. This just from my reading over the years as I am in no way a fighter. On the bro...

Re: Siren

I use mine in the kitchen a lot as a paring knife. It's easy to clean and stays sharp.

Re: C-60 Ayoob Campaign: No I Won't Shut Up

I'd buy one, heck even an FRN with S30V or VG-10 would be awesome.

Re: Bring Back the Catcherman?

Being a avid fisherman and catching big fish where I live I have nothing but PE Pacific salts for filleting on the boat nowadays as Barramundi are filleted scales on and fillet knives are too thin. https://files.catbox.moe/edaew4.jpeg https://files.catbox.moe/dqv6ul.jpeg But the catcherman got me i...

Re: YOJUMBO has been released!

I'm curious to find out if it will clip into the watch pocket in my slacks and khakis or if it's too big. I may have to go back to the DeSantis Nemesis single mag pouch for front pocket carry with dress cloths.

Re: Your Favorite "Obscure" Spyderco model?

Plain edge Ocelot is very cool. There seem to have been a lot more combo edges made.

I have one plain edge.

Re: Bring Back the Catcherman?

I think your assessment is spot on. Not saying the average fisherman is a cheap bastid, but perhaps the average fisherman should not be Spyderco's targeted demographic in this instance. I'll put a finer point on that... how much does even someone who regularly EDC's a $150 knife want to spend on a ...

Siren in the dish washer?

I've been using my siren quite a bit for food preparation. Recently I brought it along for a fishing outing with my son. Now feel like I need to sterilize it. Is it dishwasher safe? I just used soap and hot water and called it good, but just checking a novel idea. :eek: :D

Re: Bring Back the Catcherman?

I picked up a NIB Catcherman on e-bay (black). I will primarily use it and my Siren as steak knives when I go out to eat. For actually filleting fish, a 6" version would make my tackle box shudder with delight.

Re: Tatanka

Another great knife that was ruined by the completely unnecessary finger choil. It makes the blade and grip each 2 inches longer than they need to be. what a shame.

Looking forward to the Yojumbo
