Re: Hawkbill Comp Lock

I'd buy it but replace the wire clip with a normal spyder clip.

Re: "Lil" Knives

I would like a lil tatanka, it seems like an awesome platform with good ergonomics, blade shape looks really cool with the swedge, it's just to big for me the way it is. I am also interested in trying out the power lock. I could see a that. Maybe give it a name like "hehaka" which is Lakota Sioux f...

Re: Safe Cleaning Products and Oil for Metal?

Simple Green. Biodegradable and nontoxic. For general cleaning de-greasing. Another much stronger alternative would be orange oil based nontoxic solvents such as toupee tape remover called C-22. This stuff is used to remove extremely strong adhesives used in theatrical makeup such as wigs and toupee...

Re: So what's your favorite steel?

What things do you cut that you find saber grounds offer superior performance to full flat grinds? Flats cut well but I can slice or cut with a saber, scandi or hollow just as well. All other grinds look better than a flat. The look of a hollow grind is universally appealing Not to me. At all. I'm ...

Someone had mentioned blade strength. Yes, Hollow and Sabers have a lot less flex if your going to hard use them. As far ...

Re: So what's your favorite steel?

So is your preference based on appearances? No, my preference is based upon performance first and appearance secondly. I've used hollow ground knives with many different geometries for most of my life, long before FFG was ever on the level of production for anything other than kitchen cutlery or sl...

Re: So what's your favorite steel?

Regarding Spyderco "Fanboyism" and tool steels, I have a slightly different perspective. I suppose I'm a bit of a fanboy but I base that on my experience. I have hung around here awhile and seen how the owners and employees of the company conduct themselves and I like it. I have been fortunate enou...

Re: So what's your favorite steel?

If he's talking about cutting corners on some other things, well, yeah, I guess. If no corners were cut all of these knives would cost $500 and up. At some point you have to accept cheaper materials and fit and finish. As long as the end price is in line with what the market will bear I don't see h...

Re: So what's your favorite steel?

I wonder what steel Sal likes the most. The cheapest stuff he can get his hands on. You'd all settle for tool steel as long as Sal make it for you. I'm sure he probably gets steel for a price that makes sense to him and his company. A lot (most) of the steels Spyderco uses are definitely not cheap....

Re: Please help me find Manix 2 Plain Edge 154CM w Hollow Grind

http://www.countryknives.com/product/c101gp2-manix2/ While the picture shows 154CM, the details say it's S30v a couple times. Yes, I think the seller possibly has a new description for an older stock photo. I've seen this on eBay many times, Ebay sellers always disclaim with "Item may appear slight...
