Re: Spydiechef Closing Action

That’s why I like the safety of a finger choil on liner locks and frame locks.

If the blade closes on your thumb, the choil will prevent a cut.

Think Sage 2 vs Spydiechef. The Sage is much safer. I like both but have to be more careful with the chef.

Re: Victorinox photo and discussion thread!

My first serious love affair with pocket knives was the alox Soldier 25 years ago. The only issue I have with them is their soft blades. That is what made me discover Spyderco years ago. Regardless, they are good sturdy tools, cheap, people friendly and very rust resistant. I still combine an alox P...

Re: Appeal to bring back the stunning Titanium UK Pocket Knife

I was really annoyed with myself that I missed out on the Ti UKPK when they were on closeout years ago. I waited long to try the S110V version, and I’m carrying the HH waaaay more than had I anticipated I would... I’m definitely keen for a Ti one. My preference is for a stainless blade better or equ...

Re: I Tested the Edge Retention of 48 Steels

One question Larrin... You listed steels like 3V, 4V, 10V etc. Were these the powder metal or ingot versions?

Thank you Larrin! Respect... This body of work will become an important reference for future knife knuts. And I agree with wrdwrght... I shudder to think what it took for you and Shawn to obtain these data, but I’m glad you did. And I’m especially grateful that you insisted on coupling edge-retentio...

Re: Delica vs UKPK

The Delica’s handle shape and large ricasso is odd. I prefer the UKPK by a large margin.

Re: Changing size comfort zone.

I started with a few 3.5 inch models, moved smaller to 2.5, and then larger to 4. Nowadays I normally EDC upwards of 3, and like the work knives to be larger around 3.5 to 4.

Variety is the spice of life...

Thanks for the heads-up. I’ve managed to miss all the previous Rex models... :o

Re: Knifeworks Exclusive Para 3, CTS-204P/Forrest Green G10

I remember when KW had their military on sale for like $140 or less it was awesome That was the best deal I ever managed to snag... They were only listed for about an hour at that price. That Military is still in use, along with its smaller brother the PM2 https://i.postimg.cc/XYhCFXSD/DSC-0899.jpg...

I’m in Melbourne, and I worked from home the second half of this week. Our offices in the US, UK and AU were officially closed on Thursday, with everyone working from home until further notice. Public and sport events are being canceled left right and center (F1 GP etc. etc. etc.), and I suspect sch...

Re: Which Spyderco stainless is least prone to accidental edge damage?

The 52100 Military has taken cringeworthy knocks without any sign of damage. It is definitely better in that regard than my stainless knives.

Edit: sorry see now the question was about SS.

Re: What's your favorite thing & slices Spydie?

Chaparral and UKPK with their thin blades are a pleasure to use, but my best slicers are flat convexed FFG’s. The shoulders of a V-bevel needs a lot of force to push through rigid material. A convex negate that to a large degree. I have convexed a few: Military x3, PM2 x2, Stretch, Manix, Caly, Sag...
