Re: This just .... - bow breakdown

Sorry to hear about the outcome with your bow, Pancake. That's no fun at all. But on the bright side, it sounds like you are in the market for a new bow. :) I was very impressed with Hoyt. In fact, it was nearly a dead tie between the Hoyt Axius Ultra and the Mathews ZXR. Darby, 305 fps is nuts! I'v...

Re: How about a hypothetical?

Honestly, I'd be happy with either one of them choosing. They both (obviously) have a keen eye for design, so I'm sure I'd be pleased with whatever model they selected.

Re: Spyderco Army Knife

I agree that both Leatherman and Victorinox make excellent multi-tools. I have several Leathermans that I use on a near-daily basis, as well as my trusty Gerber Multi-Plier. The only problem is that they don't say "Spyderco" on the handles. All kidding aside, I would gladly pay a premium for a new G...

Re: Where is Blerv?

I believe Blerv is alive and well, based on some brief conversations I had with him on Instagram recently. Roman (BH49) sent me a note a year or so ago to thank me for our friendship and to let me know he was leaving the forum. I sure do miss that guy. IIRC, Marcus also announced his decision to lea...

Re: Mcbee after carry?

https://i.imgur.com/GilExrM.jpg My wife surprised me with a McBee this past Christmas and it quickly became a favorite. It is a very functional design, despite its size. I have big hands (size XL+ in gloves), but I don’t have any issues opening/closing it one-handed. It fits perfectly in the coin p...

Re: Reveal 6 Live!

Very cool reveal! Almost every page had me saying, “I need one of those.” I mean, a re-birth of the Small-Fly?! A Tenacious in S35VN?! A Sage in Maxamet?! And that awesome Colorado-themed PM2?! Oh, and let’s not forget those sweet looking Salts on page one! Well, I can easily see this is going to be...

Re: Happy Birthday SpyderNut!!!

Thank you all for the birthday wishes! Really do appreciate that very much. Had a great time taking a nature hike on a new trail in NW Ohio with my wife. The weather was perfect. We then came home for some Italian take-out and some of my wife’s delicious cinnamon coffee cake.

Re: How to cancel account?

In agreement with the others, I would encourage you to reconsider canceling your account. There are several alternative options mentioned above that would likely help. If nothing else, maybe take some time to think about it before pulling the trigger? I’m sure you already have, but sometimes a week ...

Re: Blazinblades.com

I haven’t ordered from them, but they certainly have a healthy supply of older, hard-to-find Spydie models. Tempted on a few. They have the orange Dodo Sprint for like $450.

Re: Advice for new knife designers

A lot of good suggestions here. The cool thing is, one really doesn't need much to get started in knife designing or even knifemaking. CAD is a wonderful tool, but it isn't necessary. I still prefer to draw designs by hand using paper and pencil, but that's just a personal preference. Purchase a dec...

Re: Should I be concerned about cleaning my microtech?

Agree with the others, I wouldn't submerge an OTF in water for the reasons mentioned. Microtech also uses proprietary fasteners on a number of their autos to help discourage ELUs from taking them apart.

Re: Is MATTHEWS still any good?

Hey guys I got an archery Question to ask you all. For reasons of all the knee & shoulder surgeries I've had in the past four years it's been a while since I've bow hunted. I had a "Matthews FX" which was a really nice bow that I used to hunt with. But I know that since I bought that Matthews FX ( ...
