Re: Endura SE ffg

I'm just happy to see others joining in the FFG/SE fight. I'm also glad to see more knives coming in this configuration. Everything that makes a PE blade slice also applies to SE.

I'm still holding out for a SE Police 4.

Re: New to the knife scene

It really depends on how much you like this model. In the long run I think this knife will pull in more than they're currently being sold for on eBay, but there are also more Shaman sprints coming out, one of which is supposed to be very similar to this one.

Re: RE: FFG H1 Pacific Salt just grind it

It looks like this guy managed to keep pretty much all of the spine thickness. I would consider maybe convexing the edge if the blade gets too thin. I remember pics years ago of someone warping the crap out of a Rock Salt. I think they were chopping a coconut which is a whole other world than you'll...

Re: POLL: Who´d like to see a knife along the lines of the Caribbean, but with a BACKLOCK?

not trying to be negative, but i’m not sure what an frn caribbean with a backlock would do for me (or spyderco) that isn’t already done by the pacific salt, especially if the lc200n ffg pacific salt ever materializes. but i didn’t vote no. i have an open mind. Well I've considered the same, and for...

About that Goldenstone 30 degree base

Can we get a pulse?

Also do we know anything about size/packaging etc? I'm curious how I'm going to carry it with the stone.

I'd also be fine if there was simply a 30 degree version without the need for a base.

Re: Spyderedged Blades: A Total Mis-Understanding Maybe?

I always found ZDP to burr extremely little, sharpened up real well for me for such a high edge retention steel. Never did try it in SE though. Much of my issues with it burring are probably due to inexperience since it was one of the first "real" steels I learned to sharpen. That said, at the time...

Re: Caribbean Scales: Love, or Hate?

I haven't had a chance to handle one. I suspect if I get one I would reduce the hook at the butt of the handle. this is my only substantial beef with this knife. if it had a similar design as the manix 2 at the butt of the handle, i would buy a pe leaf and se sheepsfoot immediately and they would p...

Re: Spyderedged Blades: A Total Mis-Understanding Maybe?

I asked this in some other thread, but never got a reply: How does ZDP 189 or do other very hard and presumably rather brittle steels up when done in spyderedge? Is it true, that Spydero stopped making serrated blades in ZDP cause it was too brittle for that? I'm kinda surprised they could even gri...

Re: The hawkbill learning experience

Had to cut a lot of thick heavy duty plastic straps at work today and the Byrd Hawkbill made the job so much easier. When you do that with a conventionally shaped plain edge blade you really have to make a concentrated effort to ensure that the blade doesn't glide of the material, it's both hard an...

Re: K390 Hawkbill Dragonfly?

I've heard about these zip tie horrors but I haven't experienced them myself. In fact when the S110V Manix 2 LW came out I did some testing with heavy zip ties (the kind the police hog tie people with) and some banding straps and didn't experience any chipping at all. I wonder if some people are cu...

Re: Caribbean Scales: Love, or Hate?

I wonder if that might have to do with that end being exposed to sunlight? Jim Could be, I do work outside at times. It's likely a mix of sun and wear since everything brushes against that part sticking out of my pocket. I'm still a bit surprised that other parts of the handle aren't worn too but m...

Re: K390 Hawkbill Dragonfly?

I'd be interested, and while I would like to try a steel like this in SE, I would initially be more interested if it were PE and especially FFG.

Re: Caribbean Scales: Love, or Hate?

I also used synthetic. What's odd is mine is fading on the end that sticks out of my pocket. I expected it to wear inside my pocket or maybe under the clip where my pants are always rubbing it. http://i229.photobucket.com/albums/ee275/EVIL85SSP/Knives/Spyderco%20Caribbean%20Sheepsfoot/20191114_0539...

Re: Caribbean Scales: Love, or Hate?

Thanks. Yeah, it's a slightly lighter charcoal kind of shade than full black, so it still has that cool two-tone look in the sunlight. But it's not as distinct as yours. Did you use normal RIT dye or the synthetic fabric dye? I use the dye for synthetic fabrics and it seems to 'hold' quite well. I ...

Re: Which steels did you carry today?

I have almost no rotation these days, it's been LC for most of this year and it was H1 for about 2 years before that. I guess you can throw Cruwear into the mix but I haven't really had a chance to use it yet. LC has honestly ruined my taste for most steels aside from some sprints I'd like to see. F...

Re: POLL: Who´d like to see a knife along the lines of the Caribbean, but with a BACKLOCK?

On CBBL knives the clips are tip up only because tip down the clip would interfere with the lock operation. Bear with me here. On a tip-up only knife, using the old barrel bolt clip fastening method has the advantage of eliminating all redundant clip holes. Back on topic, I believe it was Lance mak...
