Re: 52100 Military

Yea I think I will just chill and see how things pan out, I've always been able to get what I want by just paying attention when they drop. There's usually enough to go around for those who really want one. Unfortunately those of us that have to work for a living have a bigger problem. Most days I ...

Re: Starting over?

I've actually done this before. I somewhat regretted it afterwards, and if you're going to continue buying knives after you reset your collection I wouldn't recommend doing it. There are knives that I sold that I'll never get back, and I just have to deal with that. It's not a huge deal, but still. ...

Re: My first preorder

Anyone care to post what knives can be pre-ordered where? (Don't bother posting KC, as far as I'm concerned they're useless at pre-orders)

Anyone else super excited for the Szabo Hawk?

Besides the Endura and Stretch Sprint runs and other folders, my sleeper pick for most exciting new addition is the Szabo Hawk. Anyone else excited for it?

Re: Disappointed with my first Spyderco knife

Hoshi, welcome to the forums first of all. Back when I was at the stage of my knife habit that you are in currently, getting that delica would have pissed me off and disappointed me to no end. Can't blame you for that. It was your first "good" knife, and it didn't live up. I get it. My first spyderc...

Re: Disappointed with my first Spyderco knife

If you were disappointed from day 1 you should have utilized amazons great return policy....other than that Id say try an American made model if you are really wanting to try out the top of the line spyderco quality. The delica is still a great knife for roughly $40 no matter how you look at it. An...

Re: Spyderco ZDP-189 HRC?

I'd love to learn that its run at 66 or 67. Why is that? Do you have an affinity to use or collect a knife more if it's blade has, as shown above, those very meaningless hardness numbers attached to it? I don't think Cliff meant hardness is "meaningless", just that its variable, (very) generally sp...

Re: Spyderco ZDP-189 HRC?

Are you waiting to use your knife until you find out how hard the blade is? Has it chipped? Have you had to sharpen it yet? What's the point of having a harder steel if it isn't getting used? Got it for Christmas. I use DMT to sharpen my knives, and it hasn't been any harder to sharpen than S30V, w...

Re: Letting a Grail Knife Go. Am I a Collector or a User?

Yes. For the longest time, a carbon fiber Stretch (ZDP-189 blade) was always my grail knife. The Stretch was my favorite knife, and that certain rare configuration with CF and a steel I loved always called my name. Well eventually, I had an opportunity to own a NIB one. I loved it. I never carried i...

Re: Manix 2 in Cruwear

I know I'm the minority here, but I like the Manix 2 design more than the Para 2. I find it to be more comfortable, a better cutter, have a better blade shape, and I much prefer the BBL to the compression lock. I think you'll be surprised when you get it. BTW, where did you buy it from?

Re: What's your most bloodthirsty Spydie?

Not a Spydie, but I was sharpening my cold steel katana machete with a sharpening puck, holding it with my five fingers gripped around it in the palm of my hand, and moving my arm very fast back and forth. Well, I felt a sting and saw red spray everywhere, and realized that the tip of my ring finger...
