Re: Unbelievable lost and found story. Purchased in 1989, Lost in 1995, showed up in my mailbox in 2020.

ceese,

Thank you for that very well written, and very good story.

I too have lost a knife with sentimental value. It too thankfully found me again. I can empathize and relate.

I am happy for you and appreciate you sharing!

Re: Does dirt cause rust?

Rust is the oxidation of iron. The oxidation is the chemical reaction between oxygen and the iron molecules in the steel. It is accelerated by the presence of water (or water vapor). Soil and dirt act like a sponge and can retain the moisture (water), which can accelerate the rust. So does dirt caus...

Re: You can run any model you want in LC200N. Which do you choose?

Dyad Salt, FRN, light weight. The ultimate tackle box knife.

I’ve been lobbying for a Dyad Salt for a decade. I’d settle LC 200N over H1 :)

Re: Getting Married Today!

Congratulations! Wish you and your family the best!!!

I’d bring the Chaparral because it is the smallest and be the least likely to be noticed while in wedding clothes.

Re: Lanyard Users Poll

I use fobs on small knives to effectively extend the grip, as well as help in one hand opening. I think all knives should have a lanyard hole, if this is what you're getting at. +1 I agree with this! My most carried knives of the Dragonfly or smaller variety all have fobs. Nothing larger than my De...

Knife Squirrel... I think you just coined a new term. I too am a knife squirrel.

Short PITS anecdote

I love my wife, bless her heart. She puts up with my knife addiction. She routinely asks for a knife, knowing I’ll hand her one with a smile on my face. But if I’m not around she’ll grab whatever is on my dresser. She’s learned compression locks, back locks, Reeve integral locks, liner locks, and ev...

Re: Clip Preference

Less potential for car scratches, less of a hot spot creator, and deeper carry, all lead me to prefer the wire clip ... by a very large margin!

Re: Suit knife

A Kopa, if you can find one, is my strongest recommendation. Despite the Kopa rec, a Bradley Air is my most carried in a suit.

Re: The Wire Clip: express your love, hate, indifference

For me, it's good the wire clip isn't on every light weight knife. For instance, if the new Jess Horn had a wire clip, I might have found the perfect knife and not try to find the next one...for a while, at least. I definitely carry my wire-clipped knives the most, but I prefer the small to mid-size...

Re: $300 dilemma

Spend the $300 on the Slysz while you have it. It's that nice. Plus it'll be far easier to justify the $160 on the mantra later.
