Re: Favorite movie fight scenes

The thread on Bowie knives reminded me of this fight scene. It's from the "The Long Riders" starring the late David Carradine.

Re: The pronunciation of "Bowie"

Thanks to Jim Bowie's role in the famous Sandbar Fight of 1827, Bowie knives became wildly popular, especially in the Old South. Today, most people I know from that region are adamant that it's pronounced "boo-ee." Because so much time has passed, this does not provide positive proof of original pro...

Re: Folder for skinning deer under $125

I'll cast another vote for the Stretch.

I agree that there's nothing wrong with using a folding knife to process deer. Not that long ago, many a deer was cleaned and skinned with the venerable Buck 110.

Re: Philosophy of locks

I'm concerned about lock reliability. I don't want the knife to close until I choose to close it. The only common lock mechanism that gives me some concern is the liner lock. I will use a knife with a liner lock, but only if that model has a proven track record. I'm also wary of liner lock mechanis...

Re: Liner Lock Failure??

I will use a knife with a liner lock, provided the model has a proven track record. But even then, I won't use it for everything. For example, some liner locks can accidentally be released by the fat of my finger during use if I don't grip the handle a certain way. When this is the case, I'll use th...

Re: Most Fidget Friendly Knife

I like the slow, smooth, deliberate opening of a back lock and the satisfying click that it makes when it falls into place. I fidget with my back locks a lot. I think of it as "slow fidget."

Re: Linerless: Any issues?

My Pacific Salt locks up like the proverbial bank vault. I can honestly say that it locks up tighter than any other Spyderco backlock I have owned.

It has seen a lot of use since I took this picture, and I haven't even had to tighten the pivot.

Re: Stickers on your car - good or bad?

I prefer to err on the side of "mildly paranoid," so no stickers for me. Some of my military colleagues choose to prominently display military stickers on their cars. While I appreciate their pride, my concern is that it might tempt thieves to break into the trunk in the hopes of finding expensive g...

Re: Lc200n Manix 2 LW Interest Poll

Absolutely. I'm not a huge fan of BD1 or S110V; however, LC200N would be perfect for me. I think the BD1N is a real upgrade on this knife. I've owned the BD1 version pretty much forever (multiples actually) as well as almost every other variant. I bought the BD1N so I could get a good comparison on...

Re: Neck Knives? Good or Bad?

I've owned neck knives made by Murray Carter. The ergonomics were amazing. When carried under a shirt as an EDC, deployment is easier than one might think; however, I feel that a folder clipped to the pocket is easier yet. A potential advantage is weight distribution. Instead of having a lot of weig...

Re: Spyderco/Murray Carter Kitchen Knife Collaboration.

I have a lot of respect for Murray Carter. In my opinion, he's confident, but I've never experienced him as arrogant. He's committed to the art of traditional Japanese knife forging, so he's not focused on complex alloys. I've never used one of his kitchen knives, but I've owned three of his neck kn...

Re: Tactical Pens Revisited

A standard pen can be used to stab an attacker for the purpose of creating distance. For example, an attacker grabs you, so you stab a soft tissue area until he lets go and steps back, at which point you run or draw your gun. A tactical pen can be used to stab; however, the robust ones can also be u...
