Re: Manix v Manix XL v PM2

I'd get a Caribbean over any of them.

Beyond that the ergonomics of the Manix 2 suit me the most. The XL is ok but I don't like the blade shape.

Re: Spyderco Models That Deserved To Be Offered In SE

I’m not sure it’s really necessary but I would feel obligated to buy an SE Chaparral. .... Never thought about this myself but actually: YES! ;) Would be interesting (and most likely amazing) to see how a spyderedge is working in 2mm (!) blade stock ffg!! That would be very interesting, though I wo...

Re: Knives I wish I had bought two of

I've wised up and bought two of many recent models that I really liked. My bigger problem is that I skipped out on other models and didn't get them while I (easily) could. I definitely need to pay closer attention to the discontinued list each year.

oH tHe TiP iS ToO FrAGilE

It's fun to look at how times change in the knife world. I'm sure most are aware of how models like the Delica/Endura tips have gotten more blunt over the years. The whole tacticool attitude where a knife isn't EDC worthy unless it can stab through a car door and baton through a cinder block without...

Re: Spyderco Models That Deserved To Be Offered In SE

Ulize is top on my wish list. Seems like most of the models I'm most interested in seeing this happen with are also models that didn't really sell that well to begin with so it seems even less likely to happen. I see what you're saying but I don't agree and here's why. Take the case I've just made ...

Re: Knife opened in my pocket.

Are you certain it was closed all the way when you put it in your pocket? This is my only explanation for one of two times I've had knives open on me. This was a Para 2 clipped tip down and somehow the blade tip snagged and pulled itself open while clipping the knife into my pocket and I later stabb...

Just a thought, can they make it open from different sides
One blade on each side of the knife....
Unless they change the blade shape, this would mean the hump of the second blade would be sticking out of the spine and into your palm while in use.

Re: Diad Jr SALT?

I voted "NO".

A big Dyad in the Salt Series would make a lot of f...

DYad Jr SALT?

I know this is probably wishful thinking but I would be all over a Dyad Jr Salt. I don't care what color, you can make it H1 or LC (whichever is more likely to be a reality) and I'm in for at least 2. I have two Dyad Jrs, one in micarta that is so worn I won't carry it anymore, and one in FRN that's...

Re: Problem sharpening a Mannix 154CM

I've had the worst luck with this steel out of any that I've ever used, it is very prone to burr depending on how you're sharpening it. The lesson to be learned here is to use a very light touch and let the stones do the work, and don't deliberately make a burr. Use a strong light source and chech t...

Re: Pacific Salt FFG

Honestly. I would like to see some side by side tests of H1 and LC200N. I don't think LC200N is that far behind H1 in toughness, I have used my Caribbean for some pretty crazy stuff and it's yet to be damaged, other than a very slight roll after glancing across a tool box. Not taking anything away ...

Re: Ladybug VG10 FFG

I have used my ZDP Ladybug I bet more than some people use their full size knives. Whatever you're doing that breaks that blade would also likely break the pivot.
