Anyone use Manix SE?

I am still looking for the right knife to complement my Delica and wondered how this would be. Just any suggestions welcome.

On one level that's one of those "if you have to ask, the answer for you is probably no" questions. But, here goes anyway. The CF version is thinner. Its handles are slightly stiffer. It is a bit heavier. Then there's "pride of ownership", the force that makes some prefer a gold watch to a stainles...

Better how? What's your requirement? Unless you are a collector, the real question is: what is the difference worth to you? What do you have to sacrifice to make up the difference in price? Is it worth that sacrifice to buy a knife of identical function but slightly different aesthetics and feel? S...

I'm surprised no one mentioned Knifeworks. Roger is a nice guy and has good prices. I use Cutleryshoppe too.

I've been looking at the CF version and the Blue FRN and it seems the price differential is too much for me. Cutlery has the CF for $140 and the Blue is $91, and those are good prices compared to some sites I use. I asked before- is CF that much better?

Thanks to all, I am convinced the GB is a great knife and why it is.I have no need really for any knife, but that may hold true for many of you. But we must have our toys even at my age. I have an order in for the GB at Jeff's suggestion, and hope they will hit Cutleryshoppe this coming week. Can't ...

It's a totally different knife. It has a short hollow grind. It doesn't slice well. On the Manix 2 I like the ergos and the lock but I found the grind didn't work well for food prep or cutting cardboard. It works well for carving wood and plenty of other applications, I'm sure but for me it wasn't ...

Why is Gayle Bradley popular?

I see so many references to this knife and am curious why it costs so much and why it is so popular. Thanks for any ideas.

I tried to cut a guy in a fight but he had a tire iron and beat hell out of me but the knife was like new. He hit it several times in a fit of rage and I asked him if he was doing a test on it. No laugh, he hit me again:-)) :p

Harpy stainless or Spyderhawk SE blades?

I want a good SE blade and am drawn to the curved ones. Harpy Stainless and Spyderhawk H-! stainless both look great to me. Any opinions? The Superhawk is out of my league financially. Incidentally, it will not be used a lot, so water or whatever is no problem.
