Re: Fellow reptile lovers??

Back when I was a early teen, I had a German Shepard, awesome dog, big Shepard, great dog! Me and my dad had just got back from the hardware store (you guys remember those?), anyway Ranger walked up to me, it looked like he had swallowed a softball and it was stuck in his neck, seriously! We threw h...

Re: Fellow reptile lovers??

Never ever had the desire to own a snake even though I've always been fascinated by them! I know you probably won't like this.....as far as snakes on my property (close to the house), poisonous snakes die, and non-poisonous snakes live! Those are some fantastic pics btw!

Re: Neil Peart, The Professor

RIP Neil, you are sorely missed. After my initial exposure to 2112, I have followed the band compulsively back then as a budding drummer. I can honestly say that this man, the band -- changed my life. He has always been my main percussion influence over all these years (not that I'll ever hold a ca...

Re: Neil Peart, The Professor

My first Rush concert was in 1982, I think I correct in saying I've seen Rush 10 times? My take on Neil is he's absolutely the best drummer ever, at least in my mind, but........the thing that a lot of people don't know or understand, he's one of the best music / lyric songwriters ever, the guy was ...

Re: LSU or CLEMSON? Tiger vs Tiger

I was definitely pulling for Clemson.......the best team won! LSU dominated every facet of last nights game, and we got to see the best QB in college football just show out last night! Joe Burrow's stock went through the roof, too bad he's going to be drafted number 1 by the Bengals! :eek: He just ...

Re: Spyderco Custom Shop

It's been mentioned here several times before, by me more than once! My suggestion was to take just 3 or 4 Golden models (Manix, Native, PM2, PM3, etc.) and offer maybe two different steels (a SS and a tool steel) and 3 or 4 different colors of G-10, and add an additional $25 / $35 dollars for getti...

No matter how rough the night before was........your knife always makes sure you leave the house the next morning with your pants / shorts on! :D

Re: Most Fidget Friendly Knife

The Yojimbo's blade weight made it amazingly flicky. I can't wait until I finally get to see the Yojumbo! The only reason I sold my last one was that it didn't fit my hand. The next one will hopefully be perfect! My Yojimbo and my Manix 154CM are the two that middle finger flick open like a rocket!!...

Give the Smock a try, for many reasons!
I've put one in my cart several times before, but I thinking a serrated Native in LC200N is probably my next purchase?

Starting to be my favorite blade grind.

I know most of you guys prefer a FFG, and I love them as well, but I'm really liking this high hollow grind, or as ZT calls it, their slicer grind. I should have included my Yojimbo 2 in this pic as well. What other models off the top of your heads has a grind similar to these two? thumbnail (31).jp...

Re: What "Other" is in your pocket???

My first non-Spyderco post in this thread. Picked up a ZT 0562 today, it’s just weird opening a pocket knife without a hole! Super high quality, very well made, and there’s nothing to pick out, very nice! I feel pretty sure I’m going to like it. 37EC46BF-E4AF-4A02-A1DE-1F61367FDFE0.jpeg 74443082-454...

Thank guys for the info.

Not sure if I am going to the Esee 4 HM route...I think I am going to order custom one from made maker.
The overall dimensions, handle/scales, and blade profile of a 4HM with 3V, M4, or Cru-wear would probably be my perfect fixed blade!
