Re: Caribbean is here, many thanks!!

Nice. Not too shabby on the whisky choice, either.

Re: Ladies On The Edge

Thanks, Tom, you put it better than I did.

You chaps are fortunate to live with such inherent freedom, (I was going to say such “such liberal areas”, but remembered that has quite the opposite meaning for you).

Re: Ladies On The Edge

The internet now allows us all to find peers in any interest or mindset, helping to normalise those.

Mostly that’s healthier than old-time, often oppressive, societal norms, sometimes it’s definitely not.

Re: Collection Limiting Rules

Like most appear to, I have a “decision process” rather than rules. This boils down to whether the candidate can do something better than an incumbent, or whether I like it enough not to care.* Then I can justify knives as diverse as the Endura wharncliffe SE and the Euroedge! *Police 4 Salt will ti...

Re: 3/4 of 2020 are almost passed...

Same here: sold a few, bought a few, some older, some new. Highlights, so far, have been the Euroedge (a wonderful design & manufacturing showpiece), Manix XL (the cbbl works way better for my large hands on the XL) and the Watu (good fit, and oh! that 20cv blade shape and grind!) Said goodbye to re...

Re: Wharncliffe vs. Hawkbill advantages/disadvantages and thoughts about the Yojimbo/Yojumbo

Fascinating insight, Mike. Thank you!

Time for a Hawkbill UKPK, I think... The only Hawkbill slipjoints I’ve seen are pruning knives.

Re: Anyone got the SE Endura Wharncliffe?

Well, my SE Endura Wharncliffe is on order and my Pac Salt on it’s way to a new owner. I suspect it may also replace my Lil Matriarch for those specific reassurance duties as well. They’re all not legal edc here, anyway.

Re: What type of pans does everyone cook in??

I just bought a cast iron casserole/Dutch oven pot from Ikea. Inexpensive and seems like good quality.

Made a first bread loaf / boule in it yesterday and it baked (even) better than my previous efforts in Pyrex and in stainless steel.

Anyone got the SE Endura Wharncliffe?

I don’t know how I’ve ignored this model for so long! That blade looks effective.

Anyone have/had one?

Re: Should I get a Sage 5 Lightweight?

Voted “no”.

The Sage is another great Spyderco “only knife you’ll ever really need”, like the N5, but with added fidgetability.

You’re clearly in too deep for that kind of trauma.

Re: This is disappointing...

I despise people showing them off or selling them on forums etc as “clones”.

They’re fakes. Period. Would the buyers be happy with fake tech? fake medicines?? fake brake-pads???

Re: Mandatory Spyderedges: Who Else Agrees?

In the kitchen I very often reach for the K11 SE cook’s knife out of preference. Everybody should be made to try SE at least once, along with decent shoes and good whisky, although not necessarily at the same time :D
