Re: What did you use your Spyderco for last?

I got called to do a humane dispatch of a pair of entangled bucks in someone’s garden. One was already dead. Discreetly shot the other (suppressed 300Blackout). Gralloched and butchered with Warrior and Resilience. The serrations on the spine of the Warrior were useful for freeing the antlers as the...

Re: What did you use your Spyderco for last?

Yesterday I swapped and zero'd the scope on a .22LR rifle. Tonight I nipped out and bagged a couple of rabbits with it. PM2 K390 did the knife duties. https://i.postimg.cc/8c6z4Pj8/F8-CC8-B43-F840-46-BE-8-D3-D-0-B2-E783-B6789.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/sgRvnSYT/00-A64-D8-C-9595-4-A49-9-A5-B-1-D2-E47-E...

Put a (crude) “true” scandi edge on the WolfSpyder and whittled a couple of try-sticks/trigger:

Carves beautifully with the zero edge but it may not hold up.

That is the Edge Photo of the Year!!! Beautifully done!
Thanks but if you look closely you’ll see it’s actually a bit of a mess!

Re: What did you use your Spyderco for last?

Took the WolfSpyder out with the 17Hornet this evening; couple of rabbits and squirrels for the pot. https://i.postimg.cc/4x3pyqdP/F71-AFFA8-16-BA-403-B-9970-D561563-DE651.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/RV475Nxj/D76-C2301-DC88-4-B55-A173-C9-C603-E7-E645.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/yY1ZptFK/288767-B5-0-B26-45...

I received a Wolfspyder in the post yesterday, so spent the evening roughing out a serving spoon type thing.
Looks very nice! What kind of wood?
I’m embarrassed to admit I don’t know. It has quite a twist to it, like hornbeam, though easier to carve than that.

Re: Airport security meet my Spydie!

They gave it back? Hell no! My knife was confiscated as a matter of course. I was more concerned about the arrestable offence of carrying a locking blade "without good reason", let alone taking it on an international flight. I'd been shooting a revolver (Ruger SuperRedhawk) the day before, plus I d...

Airport security meet my Spydie!

Fun at Heathrow en route to USA this morning.

I got nobbled at security with a locking knife (Spyderco) In my hand baggage! It was in my board shorts from previous kayak-fishing.

Everyone v understanding-police were called but no action taken! Oops.

Re: Finally a Bushcraft UK in my hands :)

Great knives! I picked up a second which had a hairline crack in the handle. I repaired and refinished it- it's still going strong. http://i68.photobucket.com/albums/i10/xavierdoc/P1040842.jpg http://i68.photobucket.com/albums/i10/xavierdoc/P1030577.jpg Now take it out and get it dirty! http://i68.p...

Shame.

Tell you what- send the knife to me and I'll let it stretch its legs!

Re: Knife Review: The Spyderco Tatanka folder (5" blade – VG-10)

Subwoofer- a detailed write-up on the technicalities of the knife and its design, thank you. Personally, I'm much more interested in how it functions in protracted, heavy (for a folder) use. I'd also like to know how it carries in actual use. I'm a big fan of the Tuff and the Resilience but my go-to...

Caught my wife in the act! (Hooray!)

She's finally done it...

She's actually using HER mule that I lovingly handled in pink.

Maybe now she'll stop using the kitchen knives in the garden!

Re: How about a salt mule?

I think an H1 mule (or equivalent "non-corrosion" steel) is an excellent idea.

I don't think people realise what they're missing in H1.

Count me in.
