Re: RIP Diana Rigg

I just heard this.
The Avengers was one of my favorite shows.

She was a such a charismatic actress.
Diana Rigg will be missed.

I just got the Rex45 one and it is my smoothest one out of the box besides my Maxamet one. I would love to see a back lock version of the LW though. That would be fanta...

Re: Alert Only Thread - Manix 2 Lightweight CPM-REX45 Burnt Orange FRCP C101PBORE2 Sprint Run

Thanks much.
I just ordered one.

The way things were going I thought I was going to miss this and out of the entire drop this is the one I am looking forward to the most.

Re: Anyone Here Like Punk Music?

In middle school I was really into heavy metal then about age 15 I heard Minor Threat, Black Flag, DK’s and Flipper. This was about 1985. There are hundreds of excellent punk rock bands out there and I used to love going to shows. Some of the most fun I have ever had was going to warehouse and house...

Re: Manix 2 Models...

There is no best steel, only more expensive and less expensive.

Depending on what you want the steel for is what should guide your purchase.

Re: Combat Aircraft

Love reading stories on the A-10 Warthog! Seeing some photos of that plane shot to pieces and still getting it's pilot home! And then there's it's Gatling gun!! When in the field during basic and AIT we would always see A-10’s on training missions from White Sands. The burb of the guns was unmistak...

Just got a GEC 23 in woodland micarta.
The 23 is a pretty large knife and it has a good bit of heft to it.

As usual fit and finish is excellent and the pulls on the blades are just right, about 7.5 for the drop point and a 7 for the spey.

I half switched scales on my Rex45 and S35VN Native 5’s.

Re: pain to sharpen SE blades?

When you get to finishing your SE blade be mindful of pressure. You want to use just the weight of the knife, very light pressure. Another thing is frequently clean the rods. They cut much better when clean. Like anything the more you practice it the better you will become. Find some old steak knive...

Re: Suggestion for changing Spyderco budget knife steel 8Cr13Mov

I have used Spydercos 8cr knives for quite a few years and if you actually use and know how to sharpen it is a great steel for work. There is no reason for Spyderco to upgrade these models. Spyderco has an abundance of similar models in more expensive steels. The budget line fills its category very ...

Mine arrived the other day and it is flawless.
I will probably just put it away and it will be a backup for the satin blade version that I carry in s90v.

Cutlery Shoppe really has been doing a great job with sprints lately.
