Re: Why Do People Hate Knives?

Naperville, I hope what I am about to type does not offend people because I am sure you and I would be on the same page with this, it is not a statement that is a "blanket statement" against whole groups of people. And it is sad that this is the situation in the world we live in, but: There are some...

Re: Oats

That is very neat Darby. I too love oatmeal and thank you for explaining how instant oatmeal is pre-steamed. Is there any known way to make instant oatmeal that has not been pre steamed?

Personal Hygiene and Sanitation: When is it too much or too little?

When it comes to personal hygiene what are extremes to avoid vs a comfortable middle ground? Many people now use sanitizers such as alcohol hand sanitizer all the time, and they claim it helps keep germs and bugs away but others claim overuse or extensive use of these types of things (alcohol, rubbi...

Re: Why Do People Hate Knives?

James, and Naperville, and anyone else: Do you think if someone carries a fixed blade that looks "exotic" and "weird" but has practical cutting power, such as a "recurve tanto" blade that is black-coated but can be used for everyday carry cutting chores, that "freaks people out" and scares people, o...

Re: FRN vs G10 vs Wood: Strengths and Weaknesses in each for Spyderco Knife Handles?

arty, I would like some compound that is rubber based but looks like wood. Checkered rubber with a wood finish. Would you like that on a Spyderco knife if it was durable?

Re: Eye Glasses

Here in the UK, eye examinations have to meet the NHS requirements- and the price is never more than £25 (Lots of folks get them entirely free) The same goes for glasses- they have to meet NHS requirements for quality and safety.... So even the cheapest pair of glasses will be more than good enough...

Re: FRN vs G10 vs Wood: Strengths and Weaknesses in each for Spyderco Knife Handles?

Wartstein my friend, and others, how can this problem be overcome? Is there a material beyond FRN, G10, and Micarta, that give us the beauty and feel of wood, with the durability of polymers or composites? Diamondoid Metamaterials, but they are not makable yet :( One of many things I do like about S...

The Plastic Problem and Waste Production/Recycling.

You and I constantly read about and hear about the modern problems of waste/trash and pollution and also plastic waste. There is even a massive patch of plastic in the Pacific Ocean and monofilament line and plastic bags, heaps of waste tires and so much of it. Now many areas are banning the use of ...

Re: Bottle Openers

I don't know of one but the can piercer can be worked all the way around the rim to remove the lid. This is a perfect idea, thank you! And here is my next question: As with knives, not all bottle openers are the same. Is there a particular brand you recommend that has the piercer and the cap lifter...

Re: Why Do People Hate Knives?

Great points. Ankerson and others, I also understand what you mean about "knife people" who give a bad image to knives by their words and behavior. For example, you see knives with names like "Ninja Killer" and "Zombie Chopper", and how they are marketed as deadly weapons, rather than a knife like, ...

Re: FRN vs G10 vs Wood: Strengths and Weaknesses in each for Spyderco Knife Handles?

Great analysis, Deacon, and yes, I would really appreciate it if Spyderco were to make wood grips with such patterns as that. Very neat, thank you. One of my hopes was for an Endura or Pacific Salt with some type of stabilized wood with grip texturing like that. Since Spyderco would not have to desi...

FRN vs G10 vs Wood: Strengths and Weaknesses in each for Spyderco Knife Handles?

From your experiences everyone, and usage, what are the main strengths and weaknesses you find between FRN vs G10 vs sculpted and textured wood? Natural wood can split, splinter, decay/rot, and other things, but, as an example, would treated wood like some of the Pakka wood Spyderco has experimented...

Re: Seeking old FRN / FRCP / G10 / CF scales for destruction testing!

It would be interesting to see someone make some type of screws and nails from FRN if it is possible and record how well they penetrate various forms of wood and other building materials.

Here is the closest I could find:
