It always impresses me that Spyderco pays close attention to its end-users. I haven't handled the Manix or Chinook II, so I don't know how the smaller lock well compares to the boyle dent. However, I'm a big fan of the compression lock and would like to see more knives with it. I wish the Manix and ...

That was absolutely cool. The only part I understood was the end where she says, "It makes it pretty (or neat)." That's a bad, loose translation.

dailex, I've had the same experience. I followed instructions with the original sharpmaker for my old-style Rescue. Now I'm more careful about sharpening serrations and run the right side down the triangle several more times than the left. Also, my CE Native actually arrived with rounded serrations....

Daywalker,

I'm hijjacking this thread, but the PE portion is ground only on one side, just like the PE portion. Technically, what you have is a primary and secondary grind on one side and just the primary (hollow) grind on the other.

skcusloa is at best ignorant and at worst a troll. Guns and knives are not necessarily and either/or dichotomy as he implies. Each tool has its place.

Read his screenname backwards for a window into what we're dealing with.

Would a mod please close this thread and stop feeding the troll?

I have 10. My favorite is the PE Gunting. I like others for different uses (Rescue-serrated, SS Cricket for sheeple), but the Gunting is my fav. If it's on, it's the first knife I go for.

I tried the Gunting in my pocket but hated it. I also have a problem walking around with visible steel at work, so I keep my knives IWB, with an SS cricket in the pocket for sheeple work.

Since I only have 10 spydies and actually use most of them on a fairly regular basis, I keep them on-hand in a nightstand drawer and a clay pot on the dresser. I'm frequently wearing 3 of the 10 anyway. The rest of my knives I keep in two cardboard boxes. Hmmm, display cabinets, now that looks cool....

update on the sheath: Last night I carried the knife and sheath around the house with handle at a downward cant (45 degree angle). In the space of an hour or so, it fell out twice. I wasn't running or bouncing, though one time I was hurrying down my hallway. <a href=http://www.spyderco.com/forum/Top...

I thought it was funny that a security official called the knife "borderline." It's a knife. If they are going to confiscate such things, that knife did not fall into any kind of gray area. Then again, the security measures don't make me feel any safer anyways. I'd feel safer if I could carry my kni...

I don't think I've ever had a knife pulled out of my pocket (I used to carry in RB), but I've switched to IWB to prevent that from happening. It's also nice that IWB is very low profile. Most of my customers wouldn't be happy if they knew I was carrying a 3+ in blade. It doesn't go well with the shi...

After work and in the car, add Gunting PE in sheath on my right hip. On the weekends, and sometimes in the eve I put a Leatherman...

Jim, Remember that UPS didn't work on Monday (holiday), so you have two weekends to contend with. Also, in my experience, UPS is much slower than USPS when it comes to cross-country ground shipping. 5-8 business days from CA to FLA. It's all dependent upon the Zone you're in. If you're in a nearby z...

VWTattoo: Yeah, the first time I sheathed it, I didn't push it in all the way either. Even with it fully sheathed, I don't think it could handle lots of bouncing around (like me running) inverted. Then again, I wasn't about to try it either. <a href=http://www.spyderco.com/forum/Topic.asp?topic_id=6...

I recently purchased a Perrin. The blade is wonderful, cuts like a dream. I've never seen a PE blade slide through cardboard like this one. My one complaint is the sheath. It holds the blade vertical, horizontal, inverted, and at a 45 degree angle. Since I wear it on my right hip, I'd like to carry ...

I think a dragongfly blade with fingergrooves on the handle, a la the navigator, would be great. Maybe even take a cue from the Gunting and Dodo, and make the handle a little larger than the knife. I love my SS Dragonfly, so it's hard to suggest improvements. <a href=http://www.spyderco.com/forum/To...

I saw my first Spydie at an outdoor show. The guy was demonstrating the sharpmaker, and selling some Enduras and Delicas as well.

Just wanted to say thanks again to everyone. It's hard to choose one sheath maker over another. I ordered mine from Rob at Survival Sheath. I want to say that he did an excellent job. The gunting fits smoothly in the sheath, I have no trouble drawing it, yet it remains secure. I'm quite pleased with...
