Re: Endela or Manix 2?

Doc, that´s a REALLY tough question... and funny, I thought just the other day that in my rather small current collection my Endela is the closest "competitor" to my Manix 2 LW.. They are also very close in most specs (see also pic below [Keep in mind: MY Endelas blade is a tad shortened since I ha...

Re: Endela or Manix 2?

I have never seen an Endela, much less held one, and now the Rock Jumper is coming. But, as much as I love, I mean, love the Manix 2 LW and Backlock, I have put an Endela in my cart, taken it out, and put it back a dozen or more times. I think it would carry nice and slim and I love Spyderco's mid b...

The Anabasis is the true story written by the guy who did it. Xenophon, a pupil of Socrates, let an army of Greeks to help Cyrus in Persia. However, Cyrus was defeated and all those captured were being executed by Artaxerxes. Instead of surrender, Xenophon organized and fought a rear guard action an...

Endela or Manix 2?

Which do you prefer and why?

I’ve never held an Endela with its CQI modified handle, but I love the M2.

There was much bitterness that their employment contract and pay stopped the moment their ship sank.
Really? I didn’t know that. Pretty bad.

Re: War memoir recommendations, please.

The Anabasis by Xenophon is a fine read. It used to be required reading at West Point.

Greyhound

I just watched the new Tom Hanks movie Greyhound with my with. It is non stop action. great movie and a real nail biter.

Re: Delica S90V

I love the Delica. It is one of my all time favorite daily carry and use knives. Because of buying a Delica many years ago I finally ditched all of my Benchmades with their too short handles. I have never looked back. I keep a Delica close at hand all the time when I am around the house, and often w...

Re: Gentleman Jess(Baby Horn)

The main Problem that the Baby Horn faced, was lack of "wow" factor... Iirc, it was also hampered by early reports of the lock bar being too stiff and hard to disengage. Mine broke in beautifully. The Chaparral lw had similar complaints when it was released, but went on the be very popular. It seem...

I am reading Wuthering Heigths with one of my students. I am finishing up Lady of the Lake by Sir Walter Scott. I just ordered a couple of more books and while waiting I am writing a book.

Re: What Are You Reading ?

Grandma Gatewood’s Walk, by Ben Montgomery. One of the best books I’ve read in a long time. About a woman who hiked the entire Appalachian Trail by herself, for the first time at age 67, in 1955. She later hiked the entire trail two more times, the third time in sections. She was the first person t...

Love that patina. My Urban has only a light golden patina and has resisted patination so far. I am letting it patinate in its own time.

Re: HOW exactly do you experience, differenciate and evaluate different steels?

..... Using knives in tasks that are the same is key. For instance using H1 for over 10 years on the boat and fishing and now using LC200N. Verdict give me H1 any day. Both great steels but H1 is easier to keep a edge on with the least amount of work to keep it sharper longer. My Mule test between ...

Great thread. I ordered a copy of The Virginian.
You'll love it. It is not like a lot of these modern Westerns. I like the American independent spirit showing through, as well as our love for practical jokes. The book has it all.
