Re: Serration Disappointment

I have found for most purposes, a combo edge blade works wonders. I think a lot of people look at combo edge knives as two different sections of blade to use for two different tasks. I have always found that the biggest upside of having a 50/50 split of edge types is that the teeth of a serrated ed...

Re: Serration Disappointment

Well, dam it, I'll just use my SE Salt 2 to dice the onions and cut the parsley for tonight's dinner (clams).

Re: All black Dragonfly Salt...one step closer?

Always wondered why one would need a rustproof blade with a coating. It looks good, but really serves no other purpose. Well, maybe to reduce the surface scratching of h1, but even then, it is just aesthetic. Plus, an all black dull knife vs a colorful bright shiny knife around water, give me the b...

Re: All black Dragonfly Salt...one step closer?

All Salt models should be offered in all black, like the Salt 2 and Pacific.
The Native Salt and Dragonfly Salt would be darn good looking in all black.

Re: Serration Disappointment

I think one does need to get used to serrations, and that they are better for some things rather than others, but for example for feather sticks they work well. In fact, they work better than expected and I dare to say a word out SE works much better than a worn out PE for feather sticks.

Re: Has anyone Yojimbo'ed a Wharncliff Salt 2?

Thank you Mushroom, I was thinking about spine modification to look like a Yojimbo, like the examples you gave. The first one is a bit too much "moding", I quite like the second one.

Re: Crucible 60 NiTiNOL

Nitinol has some very special properties. Including changing shape when reheated. Even at temps as low as 98°. That’s why it’s used in cardiac stents. Might be a problem in a knife blade? Search Wikipedia for more info. (Sorry I couldn’t figure how to paste a link) Yes, there is NiTiNol that has th...

Any suggestion from EU users?

Re: Micro Serrations

There are flat earthers, why not flat edgers?
In the end, it is only about ignoring the scientific evidences.

By the way, nothing is straight, as the atoms that build up matter are everything but straight :D

Re: Mule Team Survey

I didn't buy any mule team.
First, I was unaware of the series for a long time;
Second, they were only available through Spydeco directly which means high costs, paperwork and possible problems with the customs (I live in EU).

Re: Idea for times of lockdown and/or reduced activity: Use your Spydies for food-prep!

Used my PE H1 Dragonfly to slice 1kg of carrots, 1 onion and 3 potatoes to make a soup :D Very cool! Though a larger onion is hard work with the small DFly, isn´t it ? Well, I wouldn't say hard work, you just have to cut twice sometimes. Of course it's far from perfect but doable none the less.

I've never found the need to disassemble a knife in the last 40 years. Put me down as another guy that just rinses them under the faucet, blows on them like a harmonica and then adds a couple drops of oil. Works for slipjoints also.
Another guy here :)
