Re: History of Serrated Edges on Blades?

One of my first experiences with serrations was with the old Ginsu kitchen knives in the early '80s. Those knives were practically hacksaw blades and would cut through anything.

Re: Lc200n Manix 2 LW Interest Poll

SAFETY is why. I have never had a lockback come open on me when I didn't want it to. That's funny. Safety is partly why I choose other locks over the back lock, especially if I have wet hands. Back locks are the only knives that ever snapped closed when I didn't want them to. Have you ever began op...

Re: Caribbean Behind the edge thickness?

It's on par with some of the thinner options, the Chaparral comes to mind.

Re: H1 Edge Test

It's all in what you expect out of a knife. I've gifted PE Pacific Salt to five friends who weren't exactly knife people, but they were guys that appreciate a good tool. All of them were impressed with the steel. Comes down to perspective I suppose. Yeah my buddy loves his Salt 2 and he isn't gentl...

Re: H1 Edge Test

I've talked to a couple guys who had theirs reground into FFG and say they saw no difference. That could just be that the edge of the blade wasn't ground enough. I think the edge retention thing is valid when compared to other steels but I don't think that makes it horrible. A Miata is still loads o...

Re: Yojimbo 2 pivot changes?

Should hold lubricant and reduce the contact area a bit which reduces friction with or without lube.

I'm certain more people have died over the years "in the name of God" than in the name of Satan, but we should try to not make this discussion about religion. Your right to be cautious about discussing religion and I have no desire to pursue the discussion-just pointing out that baseless derision o...

Re: Tip up or tip down carry

Small to medium I prefer tip up, but on larger knives like the Military I'm ok with tip down.

I'm certain more people have died over the years "in the name of God" than in the name of Satan, but we should try to not make this discussion about religion.

Re: Consistent edc

I don't think ever more than a couple years unless you count an old Gerber EAB that I think I carried for about 5. I also have a cheap tap-open style box knife I got at a job back in 2000 that still gets used and was a daily carry for a good 15 years. I think the longest I've carried a Spyderco with...

About that Smock blade cutout thingy..

I wonder if that could be sharpened into one big serration?

🤔

I'm not sure I could live with the handle but at least that part of the blade would still cut. Someone make this happen.

Re: No POLICE

I usually dislike any logos beyond the Spyderco logo on my blades but I kinda like the Police and older Military graphics. Anything can be ground off if you know what you're doing or willing to pay someone to do it for you. You'll likely also lose the bug logo, otherwise the scratch pattern will be ...

Re: "Why not more knife fans?" revisited.

I once seriously considered buying a high end titanium hammer despite the fact that I have no reasonable need for such a thing. Good thing as a hammer needs weight and titanium doesn't have it. I spent a lot of time behind a hammer and you want a good weight and grip that matches your swing. Casual...

Re: Hiking knife

What do you expect to need a knife for on these hikes? Are you concerned with actual survival situations or just need an edge in a lightweight package for random uses? There are a lot of good options but being realistic with your needs will narrow down what suits you best, so we need more info or yo...

Re: "Why not more knife fans?" revisited.

To most of us (I suspect), a hammer is a tool to pound things with, but to a carpenter who swings that hammer probably a thousand times a day or more, there's a lot more to a hammer than just pounding things. Knife hobbyists look at knives in the same way, they're more than a tool to cut with, even ...

Re: Hawkbill vs. sheepsfoot for rescue and personal safety on a sailboat

I'm somewhat surprised that Spyderco has never offered a "Rescue Hawkbill" folder, by which I mean a hawkbill blade with an intentionally blunt and rounded "butter knife" style tip, like the Whale Rescue blade's. I'm with you on this....the idea that I would need a blunted tip to cut you out of a s...

Re: Grip discussion

I guess I have relatively small hands for a man, as I can get a full four finger grip on the Caly 3 without using the choil. OTOH, I much prefer a handle like the Caly and Stretch have, to handles like the Rhino's, Manix's, and Autonomy's which force me to either separate my fingers or rest one or ...
