Re: Would s110v family sale better w/o Blurple?

I'd definitely love to try S90V. I might like to try S110V. If it was green I probably would have bought a few in S110V already, but I understand I'm just kinda weird like that. The blurple pretty much means I'm going to buy new scales though.

Re: How about a new Military?

I was lucky enough to add a Millie to my rotation a few months back thanks to a very thoughtful forum member. I must say, it's now my favorite carry for most days.

I would love a K390 run, and I'd love it even more if it was a Millie 2.

I think I'm going to have to try a wharncliffe now - got to make up my mind between the rock jumper and the dragonfly!

Re: Straight Spine Stretch XL FRN Color Poll

Foliage Green or Flat Dark Earth for me, I'm happy with earth tones. I couldn't select a third option, but I'd also be happy with Ivory.

Re: Dragonfly 2 blade swap

Well, my K390 Dragonfly came in, and while I managed to get the VG-10 blade & lockbar into the FRN handle, I couldn't quite manage to get the K390 blade & lockbar into the G-10. Going to give my thumbs a break and try again tomorrow! To anyone who tried a similar swap successfully: Did you swap the ...

Re: Where do you grip large knives with a choil?

You know, it's a good question. On the PM2, Para 3, Stretch, and Dragonfly I immediately grip the choil. On the Military, I initially grip without the choil, then slide forward into the choil to get more control over the blade. That's the primary reason I like the choil - my hand is closer to the cu...

Re: Production knife classics? (Modern)

C4B99CFB-854C-4B2E-B1C7-9F7FE9FBE730.jpegThese are all still in production and have more than stood the test of time. The 110 is a new version with the s35vn steel and Micarta inserts. Its absolutely hands down the most solid feeling folder I have. It was a DLT exclusive and is quickly becoming a n...

Re: Production knife classics? (Modern)

Lots of great knives mentioned here. Here's my take for the large, American-based manufacturers. Spyderco : Delica/Endura, Para Military 2/Para 3, Native, Tenacious Benchmade : AFCK, 940 Buck : 110/112 Ranger Kershaw : Leek, Blur, Skyline CRKT : M-16 Series Chris Reeve : Sebenza Gerber : Gator series.

Re: Hello and a story

Hey Jbabr,

Welcome to the forums!

The quality of Spyderco knives always impresses me. I've been using them about 10 years now and they never disappoint.

Re: Dragonfly & Manbug K390

Logged into BladeHQ this morning and saw that my K390 Dragonfly finally shipped! Only took 4 months... :-)

Can't wait to put that blade & lockbar into some foliage green G-10!

Re: What did you use your Spyderco for last?

Brought the Military to work today, and thank goodness I did. The longer blade really came in handy! Finishing up some improvements at the gym as we get ready to re-open. Our county's numbers are improving, fingers crossed we can reopen at the start of next month. Today was flooring day, this was 2"...

Re: What’s up with the military?

What you have, the 204p version, is really, really, hard to beat imo. Its a fantastic steel. Plenty of Chromium and sharpens so well - holds an edge very well. Its just hard to beat for an allround knife and steel imo. It's my first experience with anything like M390. Hope to put it to more use onc...

Re: What’s up with the military?

I was in the same boat as you recently. I love the PM2, Para 3, and Stretch. You'd think a Military would be right up my ally, but I help back, mostly because of the price point. For $200 or so, I could get two $100 knives. Or a $150 knife plus a set of micarta scales. Plus, it doesn't even have a c...

Re: Jeweler's Loupes & Magnifying devices?

I think they're for coins and jewelry. Available on Amazon, I included a link above. I like the one that Rusty Iron linked as it's cheaper smaller, but looks like it does the same thing. I'm currently using a 10x - 30x loupe, and while it does work, I find a bit of eye strain. Maybe I should try som...
