Re: So what's your top 3 favorite steels? and why?

The jockeying continues. And, now that Larrin has declared the primacy of geometry in any comparison of good steels, the jockeying will probably continue. Since my earlier post last year I’ve moved on from (but haven’t in any way abandoned): M4 (in GB1, Air, Manix2, PM2, Shaman) K390 (in Police4, PM...

Re: Function & Practicality Aspects of EDC

2. Blade ricasso/plunge line design (?). Not even sure what to call that, basically I want the edge as close to the handle as possible and I DO NOT want any sharpening choils or notches or whatever, I don't want anything but edge all the way up to the handle. This detail combined with #1 gives me a...

Re: Caribbean SE Mega Thread

The SE Caribbean blade is FFG. But its primary bevel is a chisel grind (like all other Spyderedges). The bevel’s side opposite the presentation side remains on the same plane as the blade’s FFG. Has there been talk about creating a Spyderedge by grinding each side of the bevel equally? Would such a ...

Re: Complex curves

But your point is well taken and should be a thread of it's own. Before we go “big”, where in the following do we disagree? Longer edges require fewer passes than shorter ones (assuming same edge-treatment). A serrated edge allows a longer blade to be made shorter, and makes the shortened blade mor...

Re: I have a new girl friend and my wife is fine

I’ve had a 3GS, a 5, and still have a 6S Plus. I fully expect to lose my mind when I get the 12 Pro Max, so good has one iPhone been over another.

Siri, however, has proven as obstinate as my wife of 50 years.

Re: Predictions for Reveal 6

Just one little very far fetched hope: Lil’Native slipjoint Oh, yes! Are they still planning on doing a Lil Native Slipjoint? They were supposed to release a backlock, comp lock, and slippy back when the model was first announced. I just assumed they scrapped the slip joint model. I have no knowled...

i think the community's input is probably invaluable to them and has driven cqi and new models.
Just so, as Sal said to me directly when I presumed to caution everyone against asking for the moon.

Clearly, Sal and Eric have their “no”, and they know why.

Re: the great manix 2 wharny salt campaign

I’ll sit this campaign out and be glad of my Manixes/Manix2s just as they are.

I wonder if the Rock Jumper is a more likely solution for where this campaign wants to go.

Re: Complex curves

As for sharpening, I haven't had any issues using the corners of the SM. Haven't felt a need to reprofile. Mine is at 15° and very sharp. Amen to the SM corners. But if you’re also inclined to freehand, as I am, don’t overlook Spyderco’s slip, Goldenstone, or even the chamfers on the Doublestuff. I...

Re: Complex curves

I was fortunate when I got my first 3 Dodo models back in the 2003-2004 era. I was most lucky when I was able to get one of the earlier Dodo models in SE. These Curved Blades in SE are awesome and it always seemed strange to me that Spyderco didn't try more SE models with the Recurve, Reverse S and...

Nice thread, Marc. The Ulize looks like it was made by G. Sakai. You probably already saw this pic I posted in the Kris thread. It shows a whole array of specific nomenclature for features and parts of the Kris. https://i.imgur.com/Ba7WnAI.jpg It was from a display of Krises and other Malay, Dutch,...

Re: C-60 Ayoob Campaign: No I Won't Shut Up

If not VG10, I’d take an SE H1 Ayoob, not for its Salt potential but for its toughness AND edge-holding. I now think LC200N in Japanese Spydies is a lost cause. I wonder about SE Super Blue and K390 (both now coming out of Seki-City). Has any tool steel sported a Spyderedge? Wouldn’t the tendency to...
