Fixed Blade Knife Testing

This evening my wife asked me to get my knives out for a Girl Scout project. Color me interested! Turns out the project is cutting Cinnamon sticks for a project they are doing tomorrow. Here's the knives I grabbed for this effort: https://i.imgur.com/N63VqNX.jpg And the debris at the end: https://i....

Re: Knifeworks Exclusive Military Restock

I've wanted to do the loop around Rainier for over 20 years. 4 more years to retirement and we're headed back to the Pacific Northwest! It's an amazing trip, and I would highly recommend it. I'd love to do it again. I'd try to time it better next time to get in just after the winter snows clear, bu...

Re: Knifeworks Exclusive Military Restock

Great knife! I carried mine on a 8-day backpacking circumnavigation of Mt Rainier back in 2017. Wonderful knife, and even better are the memories attached to it.

Re: Cruwear Shaman ALERT THREAD

I purchased 1(out of stock and hoping they get some in) from a site called hand-tools.com. Slash - FWIW - I have used hand-tools.com successfully in the past for hard to get sprint runs. Their website is antiquated in appearance, but I don't recall there being any issues with quick shipment. They d...

Re: ESEE Knives

I have a Izula II, as well as a BK14 (which is half Esee).

I really like both of them, and honestly would love to see the Izula II handle with the BK14 blade shape.

The Izula's ergos are great, and I really like it in that size range. I haven't tried any larger Esees, so no input there.

Re: Shaman Cru-Wear Sprint Run release ?

Me too. Appreciate the heads-up, Mm1313.
I've been wondering when more of these would start to come out. Seems like the longest I've observed between initial release and more broad availability.

Re: Shaman Cru-Wear Sprint Run release ?

If I recall correctly, this is very similar to how the HAP40 Caly 3 sprint release went down. Very limited availability at first, but later it was available for longer.
I don't think it was ever readily available, but those that wanted one could get one.

Re: In praise of Mr. Ed Schempp

My only Schempp design is the VG10 Rock, and I really am in awe of its ergos. Specifically how the handle locks the hand in super snugly, and the negative blade angle which seems to be a Schempp trade mark. It's a super interesting design that I am really pleased to own. I use it as a camp / campfir...

Re: Cru-wear Delica

I am really digging the blue hue as well. I was just surprised, given how corrosion free my other Cruwear knives have been to this point. Those clips on the PM2 and P3 are Casey Lynch's, and I think those are the sand blast finish. Can't say enough good things about his clips. And he's a great dude ...

Re: Cru-wear Delica

I noticed that my Cruwear Delica is developing a patina quite a bit faster than any of my Golden Cruwear models are. Under basically the same conditions and care. I wonder if the heat treat protocol is is slightly different between Seki and Golden? Anyone else notice this? https://i.imgur.com/Bopipl...

Re: So what's your top 3 favorite steels? and why?

Cruwear / PD#1 - most balanced steel for my needs, and I have it in all of my favorite models. Sharpens easily, holds edge well, tough. M390 / 204P / 20CV Family - very stainless option, excellent edge retention, sharpens easily. 52100 (or Super Blue) - I love the edge this steel can easily take, an...

I held out much longer than in previous years, but the $100 Junction was too good of a deal to pass up.

Re: Where is my Bow River ?

Here's a family portrait of of my trailing point knives. I am a really big fan of the form. Also, I am amazed at how thin the Bow River is behind the edge. I measure it at about 0.018 to 0.020 bte. I ran it over the brown SM stones and it has a sticky sharp edge now. https://i.imgur.com/PsVQmI2.jpg...

I've been using my Southfork today while out camping in anticipation of my Bow River (arriving on Monday). I have used it today for preparing a cantelope and also slicing apples. The trailing point design is an exceptional apple slicer, and it specifically makes coring the apple super easy. Really e...

I see them on eBay for $40. But it sure seems like other dealers will start to have them at MAP.
