I am betting after a couple complete sharpenings you won’t have this problem anymore.

Re: Manix 2 rex45 g10 model

Well I managed to score one. The one that I am really looking forward to is the lightweight Manix in rex45. I like g10 but my lightweight versions get carried more often. Without hijacking the thread too far... can you explain why you prefer the LW Manix2 over the G10? I am really interested in und...

Re: Please Help Me Buy a Flashlight!

The Olight and the Wowtach are actually pretty good choices for edc flashlights. I have a little Olight i3e that has been on my key ring for a few years. For my bigger lights for walking I usually go with an Emisar D1S or my Astrolux FT03, both these lights have a nice dim moonlight mode and with a ...

Re: CS Para 3s

I went ahead and got a satin version since I missed it last time around.
The DLC version was sold out and in most circumstances I avoid coated blades but I gotta say the DLC does look pretty nice with the orange scales.

Re: Para3 LW in m390.. First LW exclusive

I have had my m390 lw p3 for a week now and I really love this version a lot but it has to be the most slippery frn knife I have owned. I’ve dropped it 3 times while trying to close it. I probably wouldn’t have this problem if I wasn’t a lefty and had to switch the clip but I think the solution is t...

Being a lefty it really doesn’t matter to me as it will get moved regardless.

Re: The Wire Clip: express your love, hate, indifference

I can’t believe that the LW Native still has a hourglass clip yet the LW Manix 2 has a wire clip.

The Native is a perfect knife for the wire clip.

Re: Where is the Urban Coyote?

I just got my Urban in AEB-L the other day and I am liking it a lot. The action is a bit stiffer than my K390 one and that is not a big deal. It will smooth out with use I am sure. The grind is a bit off from side to side but that is normal and that is usually the first thing I fix on all new knives...

These are my 3 latest traditional knives, a GEC 06 with blue jigged bone, a GEC 29 in acrylic, and a Queen Heritage Jack with wood covers.

All of these are excellent in terms of craftsmanship and they all slice things up very well.

Re: SEKI-CITY JAPAN looks hand etched

I ended up with 2 V Toku Delicas and only one of them has the strange font.
Both were bought at reputable dealers so I am not concerned with the fake issue.

I kinda like the look of the odd lettering.

Right now I drive a 5 speed VW Passat.
My first car was a 75 Dodge Dart and my favorite car was my 68 Fury III, I’m 6’ and I could stretch out and lie down in the back seat.

Re: 1950s/60s TV Shows That Were Truly Ahead Of Their Time

Not to get away from the spirit of the thread, but does anyone listen to replays of the old radio shows? I know, in my neck of the woods, that AM 900 out of Toronto broadcasts them from around 9 pm on. Nights are the only time I can pick it up. I love the old radio programs. The Shadow, Dragnet, Su...

Re: 1950s/60s TV Shows That Were Truly Ahead Of Their Time

Dragnet was way ahead of its time imo. I’m talking about the 50’s version though. It really set the baseline for police procedural shows. Given the time period the acting was excellent also. If you have never seen the 50’s version check out “The Big Cast” with Lee Marvin playing a serial killer. As ...

Re: Police 4 lightweight

Nevermind the fancy steels, I want partially serrated! Yes, I know I am in the minority, but the all Stainless versions get it, and I do not like the lack of grip on those. It would be great to see a partial serrated blade on the VG10 and K390 versions, for ZDP I would stick with a plain edge. I lo...

Good read.
Yes tailgating then braking causes the “accordion effect “ which slows traffic for no good reason.
