Re: The Waterway Will Be Mine...

What were you throwing? Looks like paddle tails. Usually catch my Tuna on Yozuris. Crystal Minnows and Hydro Minnows. Sometimes I get em jigging lead...or even casting jigs at em. The paddle tail is actually a 4oz jig made by Lighthouse Lures. I have been WHACKING the bottom fish with those things.

Re: Lost knife

It always sucks. I’ve lost a few salts overboard over the years and it always stings. I think it might actually be worse as you get to watch it sinking into the inky depths. Haha.

Have I ever mentioned how much I dislike you? :p
You have not. Please elaborate. I will listen attentively as I stuff the rest of this fresh tuna into my fat belly. :cool: :p :p

Re: Spyderco Photo of the Week Contest!

This was a shot shared on instagram by photographer and fellow knife lover Musashi671. He’s not a member here so this probably shouldn’t be a submission, I just thought it was a sweet shot of one of my favorite Spydies and wanted to share. ;)

Re: Spyderco Name Recognition?

There is definitely truth to this. I mention the brand to a LOT of people and I bet among the average Joes, only 10% of them are even familiar with the brand. I’m always surprised that they don’t have more brand recognition than they to. The silver lining to that is that Spyderco is a company making...

Re: DLC and rust.

Here is my humble opinion on that subject. Rust is iron oxide. Rust is prevented in stainless steels by forming chromium oxide on the surface. In both cases there is a metal reacting with the oxygen in the air. DLC is almost pure carbon. It's reaction with the oxygen in the air will Form most likel...

Re: DLC and rust.

I'd think that if DLC makes steels impervious to rust, it'd work on any steel. Maybe. But we also have to entertain the idea that maybe we don’t fully understand the “how” of the improved corrosion resistance that DLC offers. Maybe the bond with the underling metal offers some protection but not in...

Re: Discussion: What do you think is the best size for an EDC folder?

Depends on my intended use. For outdoor use like my kayak fishing I like a 3.5-4 inch blade. For normal EDC stuff i gravitate more towards the 3-3.5 inch range.

Re: Compression Lock Military 2 Steel Poll

You left out what's probably the best steel for this application - LC200N. It's tougher than Cru-Wear, it's easier to sharpen, and it's extremely corrosion resistant. Just standing outside manning a gate in places like Iraq, in the heat of the summer, can cause one to sweat significantly. If the Mi...

Re: Military 2. What exactly is going on?

Neither the liner lock nor the compression are my favorite locks but I like both of them fine. The liner lock on the Millie is actually the best example of that lock I’ve experienced. I wouldn’t buy a Millie 2 just for a compression lock but if that model also comes tapped for tip up carry then I wi...

Re: Compression Lock Military 2 Steel Poll

I selfishly voted for 4v just because i haven’t had a chance to try it. I think the best bets for making the highest number of buyers happy (not just us steel snobs) would be 20cv or s45vn. Edit: switched my vote to 20cv. I also feel like s45vn should be in the poll. Given that it is a new steel and...

More specifically. Given how large the forward finger guard is in relation to the pivot. You are going to need alot of ricasso (or kick) in order to catch the forefinger if using the standard one handed mid backlock close.
Mainly this. ^

Re: Is the Siren a Salt?

Hi Warstein and VooDooChild, you are both right. One of the deciding factors was that it was simply easier to position It for the knife to ride in pocket exactly how I wanted. It was also less obtrusive feeling in hand and in use. A few years ago I would have told you that I greatly preferred the ho...
