Re: Smart Phones

Just gotta come back here and say y'all, I recently purchased a new phone on a whim because it was a good deal. It is a Oneplus 7 Pro. I cannot begin to tell you how nice the upgraded 90mHz refresh rate is on this phone. The display is gorgeous and infinitely smooth, the phone is wicked fast (Snapdr...

Re: Smart Phones

I have had a number of phones. I enjoy updating every year and a half or 2. I have had experience with smartphones from apple, motorola, ZTE, samsung, LG, Google and essential. Motorola is probably king of the budget phones, or at least they were up until samsung released their "A" series phones. Mo...

Re: Naked and afraid...

If I forget my usual carry, I have a spare blade in my truck. I also have a spare blade or 2 in my backpack which goes most places with me. I once forgot to stick my knife in my pocket before making a 3 hour drive to visit friends for a weekend. Thankfully walmart has some decent options nowadays an...

Re: Fellow reptile lovers??

I have always loved reptiles. My poor mother on the other hand, cannot stand them. Still, shes allowed me to have some over the years. I had a high yellow leopard gecko named Charlie for 5 or 6 years and he was great. Right after Charlie passed, I got a female creamsicle Crested gecko that I named C...

Re: Rating Battery Performance, Also Favorite Vendors?

I am running some cheap off brand rechargeable 18650's from Amazon called EBL. They say 3000mAh at 3.7v on the case. They work fine in my Fenix PD35 and I use the light frequently on duty. I suspect 3.7v is not enough to drive the diode at max output though because the 1000 lumen setting looks like ...

Antifog for sunglasses?

Anyone have any good recommendations for anti fog for glasses? I wear my Wiley X Valors for eye pro when I go shooting but I will also wear a shemagh pretty frequently as the shooting locations in my area are windy, sand filled places and I prefer to keep the sand from beating the skin off my face l...

Re: The Usefulness Of Multi-Tools In This National Emergency

I regularly utilize my leatherman skeletool for various tasks. I had a wave but I sold it because close to 9 OZ was way to much for my pocket and I'm not a belt pouch person. The skeletool's blade holds an edge pretty well for being 420HC and it sharpens back up to a hair popping edge with little ef...

Re: SE 440V

I traded for a 440v SE Millie with one of our very own on the forums. Eventually I got bored with it and traded it back to him. Its the only knife I have and still do regret getting rid of. 440v is a great steel and was never terribly difficult to keep sharp on the sharpmaker. Great testing that mak...

Re: Does anyone else play music?

Primarily a bassist. Dabble in guitar and percussion. I worked for L.R Baggs for 3.5 years and while I was there, had access to some pretty significant discounts. Before I left I purchased a Breedlove Pursuit series in mahogany. Absolutely adore that guitar. My bass is an Ibanez SR500PB. Ibanez make...

Re: Home Protection and or CC

There are tons of great guns out there. For all kinds of applications. But like many here have wisely stated; what you like and what I like could be entirely different. I thoroughly enjoy my Rem 870 magnum for most applications, but even with an 18 inch barrel and a collapsible stock, it's too long ...

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 edg...

Re: The best pocket knife ever

Eh, we'll have to agree to disagree, I prefer the Baby Horn as a pocket knife. The only advantage a slippie has, is legality in some places. I don't pay attention to knife laws to begin with, so legality is a moot point for me. Same with guns, I carry one regardless of location or restrictions and ...

Re: Has the Coronavirus affected your daily life?

Not significantly. There's more people out and about which means it takes a minute or two extra to get where I'm going. It also means I'm avoiding Walmart and Costco as much as possible. I am a hospital security guard and the hospital does not close of course, so even if there is an outbreak in my a...

Lube on Ceramic ball bearing pivots. Yay or Nay, what say you?

Looking to see what people think! I've heard people say that it IS beneficial to lube ball CBB pivots and others say no, the pivot is already a peak smoothness because of the rolling nature of the bearings. I want to know what the knife folk of the Spydie forums think!

I am having a minor issue with sharpening if anyone has any suggestions. I have 95% of the blade hair popping sharp, but for whatever reason, no matter what angle i try, the last 5% of the edge near the tip will not get sharp. I will carefully and slowly adjust angles and I just cant seem to hit it ...
