Re: Automony 2 Rusted

I'm pretty sure this model has nothing to do with the Coat Guard....just sayin. The Autonomy 1 was the CG knife and even that is only the orange one without the lock.


It needs sent back to Golden. This is the sort of thing that needs professional evaluation, it's an opportunity to improve something.

Re: Mantra 2 ??

Kinda wish I had got one. I really liked my Mantra 1, it's one that I often forget I even have but I think I've got some minor mods in mind so I may dig it out soon.

Re: Salt 2 LW Awesomeness

I definitely get way sharper edges off the Sharpmaker with SE than with PE, but I also think a big part of that has to do with the steels I'm using with SE being much easier to sharpen. So by comparison I don't have any SE S110V to directly compare to PE. I do have some PE H1 but that stuff sharpens...

Re: Paramilitary 2 Salt ?

We've talked about both for years. For a while it was said to be an issue because of the availability of H1 in the US but then we got the Autonomy, then it was the liners but then we got the Caribbean, then it seemed like the Manix 2 LW was a prime candidate since it at least didn't have liners but ...

Re: Hawkbill Uses: For PE & For SE?

Is there anything you think you might prefer a PE Hawkbill for? In my mind, a hawkbill is basically one big serration, the hooking action is still there, but the edge itself is less aggressive. When I was a kid I did carry and use a PE hawkbill linoleum knife so I'm sorta familiar with what to expe...

Re: Knife monogamy is a satisfying yet boring life

I like being skilled in one tool, so I’m taking the time to learn the Caribbean exclusively so its use becomes second nature. Muscle memory is so important to me. There are models I've carried so much I'll always feel comfortable with them (Military) but a lot of why I stick with one knife for long...

Re: Knife monogamy is a satisfying yet boring life

I always try to use different knives because I like them, that's why I bought them, but I end up using my SE Endela 5-6 days a week. During weekends I may change during the day depending on activity. My problem is even though I'm far from new at this, my tastes are really evolving over the last few...

Hey I'm just impressed you used a Ladybug to carve a chicken, I know someone just said it's a "full sized knife" but this is taking it to a whole other level :p

Re: Knife monogamy is a satisfying yet boring life

Ever tried the Native? Actually my first Spyderco was a Native, and I also have a Maxamet Native 5. I really love the design for what it is, but these days I really prefer something bigger and without a 50/50 choil. As far as knives of this size range go, the Native 5 is probably my favorite, altho...

Re: Hawkbill Uses: For PE & For SE?

On topic, I've been wondering this myself quite a bit. I ended up not ordering the H1 Hawkbill Dragonfly yet, but it's still on the list for the not-so-distant future. The Dragonfly seems like such a great platform for exploring different blade shapes. I think I'll end up with the SE Hawkbill next....

Re: Rockjumper discussion

In reality, It's a test piece The beauty of the mid back-lock is: 1. The kick hits the lock bar at the pivot which prevents the edge from hitting the back spring. 2. The knife can be easily and safely closed with one hand. 3. The spring offers a strong self close detent. 4. The design concept can b...

Re: Hawkbill Uses: For PE & For SE?

I think I'd like a PE Spyderhawk but I already know I strongly prefer the SE version. I'd buy one in PE for science. I feel like "for science" is definitely my justification for buying models I haven't tried before. Science funding has gotten out of control lately. :p But Honeeeeyyyyy I need that F...

Indeed, and I probably have my hopes too high for that one already but from pics it looks amazing.

Re: Knife monogamy is a satisfying yet boring life

Once I learned about sharpening them and how to make them slice without snagging, it opened the door to a whole new world of performance that's way beyond anything I've experienced with PE At the risk of sounding totally incompetent, might you be able to point me to anything you have previously pos...

Knife monogamy is a satisfying yet boring life

I can not do rotations. I have tried, it's just not in my nature. I'm borderline OCD about some things and I don't mean that as a joke. I don't need to lock the doors 47 times or wash my hands 100 times a day, and I don't mean to make a joke of people who really do have that kind of OCD, but there a...

Re: HOW exactly do you experience, differenciate and evaluate different steels?

I think most of it is based on perception, and ties into what I said the other day about some steels just working better for some people. All you need to prove this idea is to look at S30V, there are people who refuse to buy knives because of it but there's also a S30V support thread going on so why...

Re: Re-finishing Sharpmaker Rods

I've been experimenting with different abrasives. I ordered some 80-600 grit triangle stones from Congress. It's been fun but nothing puts a better edge on my SE knives than the sharpmaker rods. I do like the 120 grit norton crystalon rod for my SE beaters though, they give an extremely toothy, agg...
