Nate, you might want to go back and look at the reissue and compare it to the original...they are not even close. the original was spectacular. The reissue was Meh at best. Fit and finish were ok, the grinds were lackluster and not crisp at all. There were a large number with unfinished ricassos. I...

My opinion is that the reissued Starmate construction is pretty top-notch. Very thick liners, precision fit all around, very solid liner lock up. Great materials, modern fasteners. It had everything you could want or need. It kept extremely well with Sal's motto of "make it as simple as possible and...

I think that the OP brings up a very interesting idea. Sure, most would think that all Spydies have to be one hand openers, but far above that I would say that Spydies are elegant cutting tools. With that higher calling in mind, why NOT make something that was THO and legal in more restrictive juris...

Here's some constructive criticism for the OP: Stressing a METAL component to its yield point will result in plastic deformation, anything beyond that risks fracture. So: NO, there is not a single magic component that will give you what you are asking for. What you are going to need is a complex sys...

It is questions like those that the OP posed that make me seriously reconsider why I even visit these forums. Please, make it all stop. Use the right tool for the job, for crying out loud.

Solid G10 handles & the power lock. Or somehow license the tri-ad lock from Cold Steel and incorporate it into the slimmer frames. At the very least update the lockback mechanism to the Native 5 level of tight tolerances.
Either way, give them a lock that doesn't develop so much vertical play.

I voted for the lock, but the more I look at the old patent drawings for the Stop Lock the more it looks like the new Power Lock, except that the Power Lock has a stop pin, whereas the Stop Lock does not. However, the principle means of locking the blade is very similar. I wonder if Sal and crew won...

Yeah!!
I'm stupid-excited for the new ffg manix2.
It's about time. I predict that they will fly off the shelves and stores will have a hard time keeping them in stock, much like they did with the paramilitary2.

It's almost like Sal decided one day to just start printing money.

This is the stupidest rule that I've ever had to put up with while I was in the Navy. It is selectively enforced, and depending on where you end up your Chief might lay down the law or he/she might not care at all. 99% of the time guys with knives don't use them to cut stuff, instead they sit in fro...
