Re: health effects of sharpening

Sounds like the only potential issue are micron solutions. Usually with water involved and the slow speeds of hand sharpening there is not the issue of airborne particles.

Re: Knife sharpening kit recommendations?

Don't forget a sharpie. You also may want to add a strop (check Tandy) and some green jewler's rouge.

Re: Caly3: my favorite EDC

We will see more Calys, especially in K390 someday. I hope the lightweight version brings it back to the popularity it deserves. Hands down my favorite model.

Re: Mule Team Redux: Which steels would you choose?

Personally I don't want to see any repeats. I'm more eager to look for new and surprising steels that we have not seen before. Only retro steel I'd be interested in is 80CRV2.

Re: Why PD#1?

I think the K390 sold very quickly but PD#1 was an anomaly for how long it was available. It was odd especially with the demand for cru-wear. I think there was a great deal of pent up demand for mules fueled by them being available again. Who knows but I echo the applause of Spyderco for taking anot...

Re: Machete by Spyderco?

Best machete I got was in Siguatepeque, Honduras. I chopped a lot of things with it. I have no idea what the steel was and paid less than $20 (with the gringo tax). It is just not profitable for Spyderco to offer a machete unless they open a new factory in Nicaragua ala Condor. I would not pay over ...

Re: The negative blade angle wharncliffe that I wish existed

Ed Schempp designs often incorporate the same angle for this exact reason but not as a wharncliffe. Sal's designs such as the Caly 3 and 3.5 also have this kind of design. I could easily see it in the line up.

Re: What the heck is this??

I think those are AWT aftermarket scales. I have a pair for another brand and they are fantastic. It also looks like a forced patina. It is genuine and modded.

Any chance of a pic of the paperwork?

Re: Seconds & used sale - a perspective

Thank you Sal to you and your crew. My experience was good. I was checking in regularly to find a deal, I landed on a PM3 Maxament. I was very encouraged to find a bandana in my package! I'm not whinging and I feel that I got a solid value for what I spent. Your team met an difficult situation in a ...

Re: Would s110v family sale better w/o Blurple?

S110V is the one steel I avoid, just bad experiences with a PM2. The color made not difference to me.
