As for understanding the allure of DE blades, you don't have to. Tastes differ, and there are plenty of things folks, including some here, do that leave me scratching my head.
Wise words indeed.

Re: Watu...AKA Lil Chokwe

I may have to get one. That angular style really pops. If I were guessing its design heritage, I’d have guessed Bauhaus rather than tribal Africa.

And 20CV to sweeten the deal.

Yojimbo 2 black, because they’ve started blacking out the compression lock.

Re: CPM SPY27 steel

If this behaves like one might expect, and as Larrin’s simulations predict, I’d hope this is the new standard steel. It’s positioned somewhere in between S35VN, BD1N, and VG10. Which is like a who’s who of user-friendly steel. And I have to assume that if Crucible’s going to formulate a steel for yo...

Re: KC Exclusive Shaman Rosewood REX 45

I really like the pakkawood on the delica I have, and KC goes into a lot of detail about what it is in their online descriptions. But on this Shaman, it only says the scales are "3D machined from beautiful rosewood." Doesn't sound like this one is pakkawood, or another laminate. . Looking at the pi...

Preordered. I’m not a fan of wood scales, but the rex45 sold it for me. I’ll try it with the scales first, and if I don’t like them, I’ll look for some aftermarket titanium or micarta.
Pakkawood is to wood what Micarta is to cloth. All the fibers are pretty much full of resin.

Holy cow! What a great way to start my week! This forum is amazing. EDIT: BTW, I went with the Millie that was originally on offer, although I could easily have seen myself going with the ATR. I don’t have either one, and the Millie is the one that people seem shocked to learn that I could have live...

If it's "niche" you want, look up the Maddox. It doesn't get more niche than that, with the possible exception of the Whale Rescue blade.
The Whale Rescue bows to no knife in its niche status:

Re: Best Edge Performance Steel between these choices?

I only have CruWear. So its edges are definitely superior to the other, non-existent edges.

That said, my M4 knives have better-performing edges than the CruWear. And at the bare minimum, I’d expect Rex45 to match M4.

Re: Breaking down boxes with Chaparral

You’ll run into comments now and again to the effect that the thickness of the blade stock doesn’t really matter—that it’s the thickness behind the edge that makes for a good cutter. But the Chaparral just won’t bind up in a cut. You give up some leverage using such a small knife, but you need less.

Guy, this is NOT the place to converse with each other about what Sal has said. It has become tedious to find what’s new.
Weird title for the thread, then. You’d think “what Sal has said” is exactly what we’re supposed to be conversing about.

Re: Reveal 3 Released!

The counter puppies are yet another “why has nobody thought of this before?” entry from Spyderco. Not everybody needs a knife block, but nobody should be dulling their blades in a drawer.

Re: designs - evolution - lifting

I think Spyderco’s design innovations are important, but it’s the build quality that keeps me coming back. And build quality isn’t something that can be knocked off. The compression lock, for instance, is probably at or near the end of its patent protection. But aside from a few custom makers who mi...
