Good job, it looks like it was broke about 1/4" to 3/8" back the Military's tip is not that thin what we're they doing to break it that far back. Just kind of curious because my Domino has the same blade steel and a thinner tip and I just wanted to know how hard they had to try to break the tip.

Thanks everyone, I feel I kept the best knife out of the bunch for my EDC. My Domino as far as I am concerned is as close to custom that you can get. The only reason I want another custom is because I can't buy what I want from the factory so he is making my fantasy knife. It might be to big for a E...

Shipped My Last Spyderco Out.

Well I had to sell them all except my carry knife the Domino to cover my doctors bills. What makes matters worse is I did not have to had the doctors office informed properly the first time. I found out after seeing a pain specialist that I could have just went through a family doctor to begin with ...

With a frame or liner lock its the detent.
With a lock back it often called walk and talk referring to how the blade snaps open and closed.

I have owned a lot of auto's and butterfly knives along with manual knives. Back in the late 80's I would have said my butterfly knife was the fastest opening knife I had, but now with the flippers out there I would side with them. My Domino and others open with such ease I doubt I could open any kn...

When the first pictures came out of the Domino, I took out my First Gen Manix(w/lockback) and decided I don't need this size knife anymore(too beefy). Lately, looking at the CTS-XHP steel, I would like to try it :) , I don't have one in XHP. I do love titanium frame locks. On the fence here :confus...

What's Your Grail Spyderco

My grail Spyderco right now is the titanium Military with the steel over travel and lock up. I know its not going to happen right now but sometime maybe a few years from now I will get my Ti Milli. I am happy with my Domino but the extra grip and the bit longer blade would be nice, plus they just lo...

I feel for you and I am sorry to here about all this. Sounds like getting that weight off your spine would help.

Sounds like you're probably getting enough water. Good for you! A lot of folks don't. Have you been diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy? It sure sounds like that to me. PN can be caused by diabeties or in reaction to certain cholesterol lowering meds. Maybe other causes as well. It damages the ner...

Also, drinking a LOT of water helps. I've been around 3 quarts /day for a bit now, and it's really helped my back pain, though, like Roman's it's generally not as bad as yours sounds. Ken I am a big water drinker, I have a 40oz stainless bottle that I fill up at least 5-6 times a day. The pain has ...

Your stone looks like what they use to polish a Katana with that paste on it. Did you just lay if flat like they do with a straight razor. Nice job.

Glad to hear that your Native finally showed up. Good thing your neighbor was a trustworthy person and brought the box to you after it was mis-delivered.

Gone Native

I posted before about trying to choose between carrying a Native 5 forum and the Domino, as you know I went with the Domino, but my family all went in on a Native 5 for me. So I went looking and found one on eBay and won the auction so I was suppose to get the knife on 9/11 and it never showed. The ...

I think the quality in the Domino is as good as it gets. I have had custom knives that were not built as good as the Domino is. The Native 5 Forum knife comes in a close second and my Tuff is third only because the blade is slightly off center. As far as I am concerned these knives listed here are e...
