Re: We finally got the UKPK Salt. Thank you Sal

I am looking forward to this one as well. I bought the HH version as a novelty and really ended up enjoying carrying it. The quality is outstanding and the SE version will make a nice compliment to the PE. It is funny how that happens. I dearly love my Delica's and I bought the UKPK in BD1N for the...

Re: Help with steel choice

Since the OP does not really seem to mess with his knives much, I'd go for the brown M390. There are no downsides here. The only reason for him to get the purple Cruwear would be for the color, in my thinking.

Re: LC200N hunting knife?

Not sure what it’s like in the lower 48, but in Alaska your average hunter is not carrying a carbon steel knife. Low to mid range stainless and fairly inexpensive knives are much more the norm. I’ve seen some S30V here and there, and you do see custom knives made locally, but often people are proce...

Re: LC200N hunting knife?

The Waterway isn’t too far from being an LC200N hunting knife. I wonder how well it is selling? It is a great utilitarian design, but not exactly a hunting knife. I can't hunt, here. Guns are illegal. When I return home, again, I will take it up again. I love to hunt, even if I don't kill anything....

Re: Bleach FRN?

Thanks, folks. Yeah, I think getting a faded color without compromising the FRN might not be possible. I was hoping someone had come up with a way. The UV light looks promising, but I still wonder what it would do to the FRN. I'd wager it would make it brittle or something along those lines You are...

Re: Family friendly jokes

Upon arriving home, a husband was met at the door by his sobbing wife. Tearfully, she explained: “It’s the pharmacist. He insulted me terribly this morning on the phone.” Immediately the husband drove downtown to confront the pharmacist and demand an apology. Before he could say more than a word or ...

Re: Family friendly jokes

Five men walk into a bar and one of them says to the bartender, “A round of drinks for me and my friends.” They get their drinks and raise their glasses for a toast, “To 51 days!” and they drink. One of the men asks the bartender to set them up with another round. Again the men toast, “To 51 days!” ...

LC200N hunting knife?

I wonder about an LC200N hunting knife. Spyderco has the Moran line, for example, that would be great in this steel. Cleaning a lot of game and the blades get coated with blood and are often stained and some are even pitted. LC200N should prevent that. Spyderco has other knives that would be good in...

Re: We finally got the UKPK Salt. Thank you Sal

A lot of places where locking knives are technically "legal" in this particular political climate still look askance at them. A slip joint gets hardly a glance. Still, be that as it may, I find that for general chores, a Spyderco slipit does a simple job of doing what I need it to do. The LC200N is ...

Re: Bleach FRN?

Do y’all think putting frn scales in a UV decontamination box would speed the discoloration along? Interesting idea. I wonder if this would work without damaging the knife? The sun will heat up the knife and open up the FRN so it can be bleached by the sun. I'm not certain about your suggestion, bu...

That is getting more towards the color I would like. I think it would take a long time to get it to that color.
