Re: BHQ Shaman Exclusive DLC/M4

Well it does match my native 5. Giving the shaman another chance to put a spell on me. Pretty expensive considering simple design and materials used.

Re: Rusted liners after fresh water clean.

Stainless doesn't mean rustless. You could use a good oil to control it.

Re: BHQ Shaman Exclusive DLC/M4

BHQ has their marketing and exclusive niche absolutely down. I just wish that they didn't charge sales tax to my state. I think they charge all states? I buy most my blades elsewhere just to save on tax. 8% on about $3000 I've spent this year=a really nice blade. I wasn't crazy about the red one an...

Re: Disappointed with M4 Mule Performance

Test another (decent)steel with similar(mule) geometry on the material you're using the m4 on. That would be the real test.

As I said in the other thread, what Elmax has over other steels is a cooler name. You gotta admit a Elmax just has a cool sound to it.
Yeah, even more kool than cruwear...

Maybe combine them and have a bastard named crumax or wearmax or elcru

What ever happened to Elmax

I thought it was a premium "super steel". Too many haters like jdspydo (John Davis, yt rope cut test guy)or whatever his name is crapped on it years ago, so now it's not popular enough to use anymore? Please say it ain't so. I've recently reacquired a large lionspy and gonna see what I remember bein...

Re: Cruwear Native Chief ????

Isn't 3v more corrosion resistant than cru and 4v? Think I'm actually leaning towards 3v as the go to all around semi-stainless steel thus far. Have recently purchased a few nice barkies in 3v. Would like to see more spydies in 3v. Probably wishful thinking though due to m390, 90v, xhp, and everyth...

Re: Black Friday cyber Monday DEALs?!?

I just got bit by a spyder again. BHQ bundle deals. Finally grabbed a province. Came with a mantra 2 almost free at 290.
Also magnitude was only 180. Guess they've been discounted for awhile just never payed it much attention. Looks preety nice to add to collection.

Re: Discussion: What do you think is the best size for an EDC folder?

All depends. I usually try to stay away from Walmart. But, some items are kinda hard to find elsewhere at a decent price. Usually socks and underwear and such are typical items. So, longer folding blade is a must as crazy people like to target Walmart for some reason. I prefer not to be a victim if ...

Re: CPM M4 vs K390

M4 cuts better. I only say that cause I don't have k390.
I care more about knife design than which steel it has.
Thought part of the knife enjoyment and experience was sharpening it? Wouldn't have to do that if it was a super magic steel that never dulls...
