Re: Knife Law question regarding Blade Lengths.

Thank you, Joe, Bloke, and others for your help on understanding this. Well, this helps me make my decision. I'm done with knives altogether. From here on out, if I need to cut something, I'm sticking to scissors, except for a basic kitchen knife. My reason: I am so tired and saddened by the constan...

Re: Knife Law question regarding Blade Lengths.

Or if you are in a state that allows you to carry a five inch long blade and under, and your knife is five and a half inches, would that make a difference? Are you asking if violating the law would be a violation of the law or if the law enforcement would care? The reason I am asking is out of curi...

Knife Law question regarding Blade Lengths.

Various places have laws regarding the legal length of the knife blade one carries. In some places, it is anything under 3 inches, elsewhere, 4 inches, and in some places, 5 or more. My question is this: When it comes to legalities, how technical and minute is the law? For example: If you are in a j...

Re: Strange question: What level of expertise would it take to "extend the blade length" on a Spyderco knife?

Yes, but, are there custom-makers who would be able to add more blade material onto a factory-made knife if you sent it to them?

AUS-6 Stainless vs AUS-8 and others?

Nearly all of us on this forum is aware of the Japanese AUS-8 series of stainless steel alloys as used on assorted knives (did Spyderco ever use that, at some point?) made by various companies. It appears to be a very capable blade steel. I have read some old articles and posts by people about AUS-6...

Re: Do you prefer Plain edge, Serrated edge, or both?

I have an important question on this very topic: When it comes to hard use such as batoning and other bushcraft type cutting uses, would a serrated blade be weaker because of the serrations acting as stress points, or not? In other words, would you use a serrated-edge blade for batoning or not?

Re: Do you prefer Plain edge, Serrated edge, or both?

I proclaim it without shame: I am a Combo-Edge lover.

Who was the first knife maker/company to introduce the Combo-edge? Was it Spyderco like I think?

In some situations I can see where a plain edge or full serrated edge would be optimal but I like the best of both.

Someone said the real reason that no government allows a person to kill themselves/commit suicide, is because governments and large corporations want people to remain alive and working if possible so they can purchase consumer goods/products and pay thei...

Re: Strange question: What level of expertise would it take to "extend the blade length" on a Spyderco knife?

... If the enuff had a blade 1 inch longer I'd probably own 2 already. Even HALF an inch more blade would be "enuff" for me and I´d purchase one. But as it is: Just too short. Wartstein my friend, this is one of the very reasons I started this post. I want Spyderco to make an Enuff Salt with a blad...

Strange question: What level of expertise would it take to "extend the blade length" on a Spyderco knife?

Obviously if you want to shorten the blade or modify it by cutting away excess, unwanted metal, that can be done. But, what if you purchase a Spyderco knife (folder or fixed blade), and are not satisfied with the presently-available blade length, what options are available with present machining tec...

Re: "Most Durable" available Spyderco Knife?

David, if Spyderco were to make an Enuff Salt with a four inch long blade and a sharper point, with serrated edge, would you get one and consider it a serious survival blade?

How were dangerous/incompetent captains relieved of duty in the British and other Navies?

I was watching a movie about the British Navy sailors back in the 19th century and one of the captains began to "go overboard" in his treatment of the crew, and it seems began to have severe mental problems and was unfit for duty. In real history, both antiquated and modern, under what grounds could...
