Re: Jimping poll

When jumping is concerned, I generally prefer having it. That being said, designs that do not utilize it such as the Catcherman or Caly Jr don't feel like they are missing it when I put them to use.

I'm a no preference and it is probably one of the last features I observe when handling a new knife.

Re: What's your favorite odd duck/black sheep model?

For me, the blunted tip knives are the odd ducks in my collection. Some, like the rescue models obviously are suppose to be blunt, however models like the pingo and even my beloved Captain that lack a more precise point see less use and carry for me because of this feature.

Re: Where do you grip large knives with a choil?

Why would anyone purposely reach so far forward on a large knife as to miss the handle and grab the choil? I do not understand this. I understand grabbing the handle and then choking up, but not bypassing a normal grip. I realize the grip is subjective and dependent on the cutting chore, but I alwa...

We need an OD green Manix 2 G10 with a sweet K390 blade. Also a LW, because we can't leave the LW crowd out.

The ranger green is okay, but OD is more pleasing to my eyes.
I will jump on this bandwagon. It could be almost any shade of green with this configuration.

I'm totally on board for a Caly sprint. I'd be perfectly happy with most of the options thrown out. Bolsters (absolutely if possible and I would love to see them in Damascus if I'm being greedy) Steel (XHP would be fine, however I would want it to be traditional and a Japanese steel would be more ex...

Mine arrived today, color is great and very close to the original ZDP Delica models. Planning to sharpen and use this one for the remainder of the month.

Re: Where do you grip large knives with a choil?

I am the exact opposite vivi. I instinctively reach for the choil on knives that have one. I prefer a more choked up grip to maximize the control on blades. This is more important for me on large knives like the Millie, ATR, Police 4, etc.

Re: 12 reasons why the Delica is better than the Native

Dan, I happen to agree with many of your points when comparing the Delica 4 to the current FRCP or G-10 Native. Had we a choice to compare the original FRN Native models (assuming they were ever available in FFG) then this discussion would have been much more in depth (in my opinion). The 2013 forum...

GITD Ladybug Coming

Just saw from GP Knives. Not sure if it is an exclusive or if they were just the first to post about it. Maybe this means the Jester is just around the corner.

Re: Stop throwing away Amazon boxes!

I will admit, there are things I have a very difficult time throwing out, but Amazon boxes have never been one of them. :p They generally get broken down the day they arrive, stacked on a shelf in the garage till I have enough to bundle, then tossed in the trash can. Herb-Ox jars, Altoid tins, and ...
