Well, if everything is done right... There shouldn't be fireworks! ;)

I've seen some underground stuff that failed and blew the manhole covers off 20-30' in the air. I always give my head a shake when you see cars driving over these old vaults and stuff.

I have a Sage 2 but tend to carry a small Sebbie Insingo or Techno more often. They are all worth it! Buy them all!

Other uses for Sharpmaker?

So... I'm out at the bar with my wife and a group of friends. I've had a few, feeling pretty good at this point. My wife wants to go out to the dance floor. Feeling pretty loose at this point, I oblige.. I'm not sure how it happened, or where it came from but while out there I was taking a sip from ...

Great Point "tautsig" :) That's why I've been preaching Spyderedged blades for cutting fibrous material like rope, twine, jute or just about any other type of cordage. Every type of edge has it's own specialty you might say. Not all serrations are created equal. Most people have been exposed to Rip...

My first car that I personally owned was a '93 Civic Coupe. http://i86.photobucket.com/albums/k100/syphen606/civic1.jpg 12 years since I got it, the car is long gone but I still have the wheels on an '89 CRX Si that I've been restoring: http://i86.photobucket.com/albums/k100/syphen606/dcc06cb9.jpg

rg02, its not worth being robbed twice.. once by a petty thief and a second time by an insurance company. I'm not going to claim it because even if I get a couple hundred dollars back, it will simply be recouped by them after they raise my premium during the next renewal.

cars broken into... spydercos stolen.

I'm just upset is all. Lost a Rescue 93mm wave, Delica wave and a FFG Delica. in addition to a Leatherman skeletool w/bit set. 2x Ipod's & cables as well as $40 cash from glovebox. Thankfully they left my Fenix flashlight and just made a mess of the interior is all.

Some people have no respect.

I love!!! my Dodo's... But lately I've been carrying a Cricket in SE. Same benefits of the awesome recurve blade of the Dodo, but smaller and less foot print.

I've noticed that where the ball bearing sits in the groove on the new models is MUCH further forward which results in maybe a more sturdy lock up... but makes the unlocking much more difficult when compared to the old blues and blacks.

My black and blue dodo's both have the lower riding clips from UKPK's.. I prefer the carry a lot more that way. Don't have any more spare UKPK clips to swap out my orange's clip at this time though.

Looks good. I prefer where the ball bearing sat in the old black/blue models when the knife was open - easier to unlock.. but otherwise I like the new Orange Dodo!

Nice tune btw. Others may not like the Dstep but I do.
