Re: Native old and new thoughts / madness

My opinion on the FRN Natives is I like the old one better. I have three newer ones and one on the way, it is a Jack of all trades knife, those options we have concerning blade grinds and steels are awesome. Still, maybe because of getting used to it, the old texture on the handle, its shape and the...

Re: PM2 in s30v vs s110v, same price which one?

I would go for the S110V. Right now I EDC the Manix LW S110V, perfectly satisfied. The S30V PM2 is a bit tricky to sharpen, OTOH it is the only PM2 I use and sharpen, other S30V knives seem to take a good edge more easily. S110V is easy to touch up on the Sharpmaker rods, for reprofiling I would con...

Re: Complete change of mind on frn

And please don't forget that we actually did have at least one if not two fixed blades with an FRN handle. I've had several "non-knife" people who I've let use my TEMPERANCE 1 model that the FRN handle on that knife was more comfortable than any other knife handle they ever had their hands on. So w...

Re: Complete change of mind on frn

I like Spyderco´s FRN, the models with liners seem very well balanced, I just can´t stand the holes in them, seem to attract lint and dirt. For continuous use/EDC I prefer lnerless folders, would love some full liner ones, though. As I don´t have any except the D´Allara Rescue which is just a bit to...

Re: Is there a "more ideal" platform for testing steel?

I like this idea. Just a slim, thin blade to compare steels and different edge angles in light cutting tasks/low cut repetitions like cardboard, meat or leather. For every tougher cutting I prefer the existing platform. The Mule Team is as ergonomic and versatile as a fixed blade can get. Perfect fo...

Re: UK penknife question

Great knives imo, the UKPK has a stop at the 90° open position, most slip joints don´t. As long as a finger is in the choil they are as safe as locking knives.
I use the G10 UKPK Rescue as my main EDC, has not let me down, ever!

Re: Spyderco Tenacious

You get a great knife for a decent price if you take the Tenacious. For my hand the Persistance works a little better, though. I like the cutting edge reaching all back to the handle and if you compare the blade geometry to the Mule Team... Perfect! The G10 handles feel great, smoother than on PM2 o...

Re: Wow the Native 5 flew under my radar

Glad you like it, for me the swedge-bladed older model fits better, at least its handle does. The S110V N5 feels a little better than the FRN one I have but the rounder handle of the older model is close to perfect for me, glad I got the KW exclusive in XHP.

Re: Spyderco Enuff for EDC

For me thickness and screw on/off FRN handles are big pros for the Enuff. I just have the sheepsfoot in VG10 and H1 and they are a joy to use! The sheath is the original one, giving enough retention but I definitely am planning some DIY handles and kydex sheaths. With those threads it should be as e...

Re: Easiest/Safest to open and close one handed (lefty)

I'd go with midlocks, ball locks, bolt locks, compression locks and slipjoints. Liner-/frame locks are not so easy to operate left handed. Maybe if those locks were the only knives one had getting used to always crossing the blade's path with the thumb would be a matter of time.

Re: Chances of a new Dodo?

Well, M390 or CTS 204P would be my first thoughts but Cru-Wear sounds good too. Some steel I'd feel rather bends that gorgeous tip rather than a brittle one.
S30V feels like a risk when I open cardboard boxes that could contain staples while I feel confident using a H1 knife with a similar tip.

Re: Any changes or new plans for H1 knives? (For Sal)

Dragonfly, Enuff and Aqua use the newer FRN surface (first two reg. production, third looking forward to be revived!!!). While I do not see any benefit in the bi-directional pattern those are options to choose from already, especially when looking for a serrated blade. Whoa!!! Almost forgot the Jump...

Re: Pacific Salt Salt Water Test: Pic Heavy!

The washer at the clip screws corrodes a bit. A little cleaning and they are fine though, no pitting, just a little surface rust, they come clean when treated with cleaning agents containing abrasive particles (I guess barkeeper's friend is something like that). My Salt 1 did not show any sign of co...

The orange G10 leaf is a gorgeous knife! Good luck for your hunt, mine did take >2years, was successful in the end, feels waaay better than the CF I got first for a substitute. Good to see others having orange FRN Rescues though the G10 feels more reliable due to stiffer spring and thicker blade. If...

Re: UK Penknife sprints

Basically collecting knives is a waste of resources no matter which steel is used.
