Re: Caly3: my favorite EDC

I agree, the Caly 3 is perhaps one of the best pocket knives ever designed. It's comfortable, capable, and carries well. I always wanted one of the ZDP/420J laminate models with carbon fiber, but those are discontinued now I believe. If you're interested, there's a Green G-10 Hap40 Caly 3 over at Be...

Re: SPY27 PM2 Colorado Edition

I'd like it better without the American Flag on the blade. No offense to Old Glory, but it just seems like "a bit much" here.

Re: Fairly comprehensive list of Spyderos in movies, tv shows, etc

This is my first time through. Its quickly become a favorite series of mine. Reminds me a lot of Star Trek TNG. I watched it almost religiously when it first came out - glad to hear it's still good! My take is a kind of like Star Trek with a bit more action, and a lot more military. The only reason...

https://i.postimg.cc/jjzQnQG4/20210226-001919-HDR.jpg Looked like some sort of FRN scaled hollow saber ground SE sheepsfoot. Some sort of rescue model.

Re: Domino 2?

I like the Domino a lot, but have never bit the bullet. I think BBS still has some in stock.

I'd be stoked on a Domino 2, as I think the model has a lot of potential.

That was one of the groups on FB I left due to lots of ignorant posts. The only one I still follow is the Official group.

Re: Spyderco/flashlight match-up.....

Here's the latest pocket dump, going all-in on OD Green here. The AAP & Para 3 Clip are new. The i5T now rides clipless in the front pocket to make room for the AAP in the back pocket. A very comfortable, very capable carry.

Re: Seki or Golden Yellow?

Golden for me, reminds me of the yellow jeeps that were popular in the late 90s & early 2000s. Both are fine though.

Re: Has K390 "obsoleted" M4/REX45/HAP40?

I think that K390 and Rex45 represent pretty ideal EDC steels for me. They hold an edge real well, are pretty tough, and relatively easy to resharpen. Of the two, I think I find K390 a little bit tougher, and a little bit easier to resharpen. I still think I can get ZDP-189 sharper, though it takes ...

Re: Upper Tier Sharpening Systems?

I asked a similar question awhile back JD and the overwhelming response was to go for a Hapstone V7 from Gritomatic for the money. An added bonus is that you can use your sharpmaker rods with it. I think they V7 is out of production and the new version is the V8, but it still seems like the best ba...

Re: Sgain Dubh poll

Something traditional(ish) for handle materials would also go a long way. Stag antler would be fantastic, but some kind of dark would either natural or stabilised would still be very nice. EDIT this guy gives a bit of background on the knife style and makes a pretty good looking modern Bushcraft in...

Re: Could it be that Spyderco will "rerun" the entire Sage series in Maxamet?

From all I know of it: I totally am - in a way! - I think it is a most fascinating steel in its properties - I also think it is great that Spyderco really does production folders in this special steel, whick makes me in return even more a Spyderco "fan" ;) I never had Maxamet so I can weigh in just...

If it's too large, it defeats the purpose. The opportunity here, to my mind, is to make a functional sgian dubh, ...

For me, if legalities, and possible loss or theft were no issue, it would probably be the HAP40 Stretch.
Hey, those are some really great scales on that stretch. Do you mind sharing your source?

You should. I should... ;) Of the currently regularely available I´d like the grey linerlock one the most...if it was not in Maxamet. The Sage 5 LW is also very intriguing! Perfectly designed for a small folder, and style, kind and size of a knife were I really like the comp lock! Are you not a fan...

I don't think so, much as I would enjoy it. I should really get myself a sage.
