Re: Spyderco serration history

I grew up near a big showground, and our house - a seasonal B&B, was often full of stall-holders. They would take my brother & I into the showground when they were setting up, and bring us back after close. Our pocket money was too minimal to waste on food, so we would hang out in front of the knife...

Re: Let’s write a story together

And as the apparitions faded away, we wondered whether those mushrooms hadn’t been okay to eat after all... What was real, and what was just the product of our imaginations, stoked by the feared Enablers lurking in the shadows and forever infiltrating our devices? “It’s no good, no good at all” my p...

Re: I love my bread maker

Bloke where have you been? Hi, Doc. This COVID-19 business has been getting to me. I haven’t been to see my Mum and Dad, my Kids or my Grandkiddies in a month and it’s starting to get to me so I haven’t been my jovial self and like the time of our bushfires I just get a bit sad, quiet and keep to m...

Re: First symptom of corona virus

In the news today: “Should loss of smell and taste be added to the key symptoms to watch out for? Experts say there's not enough evidence yet. Public Health England and the World Health Organization have not added them to the list. ENT UK, the body that represents Ear, Nose and Throat doctors, says ...

All this sounds great to me!

Re: Serration Disappointment

I have the Cooks Knives K11 in both PE and SE.

If I pull the SE out of the knife block in error, I rarely bother to put it back now in preference to the PE, whereas I will more often put the PE back to get the SE....

I’m right handed and have just got used to using it.

Re: I love my bread maker

I’ve always fought shy of making my own sourdough starter. If I run out of yeast I may need to! Can you even make sourdough in a bread machine?

I made Chapati the other evening. Flour, water and a little oil, no yeast, no rise - easy!

Re: Family friendly jokes

One day a man decided to retire... He booked himself on a Caribbean cruise and proceeded to have the time of his life, that is, until the ship sank. He soon found himself on an island with no other people, no supplies, nothing, only bananas and coconuts. After about four months, he is lying on the b...

Re: Knife conscience

....Honestly if I just needed a basic cutting tool it would probably be an Opinel and I'd save myself thousands of dollars I've spent on knives. Opinel: the best knife for the money on the planet. And, you'd probably have one of each size and flavor. LOL Until it gets damp, the handle swells and yo...

My work iPad has one of these. It really is very good, although the screen cover is a little marked after a couple of years of everyday use.

Mine had a smooth drop shut action, but I have spoken with others whose were ... well, poor.

It’s a great design, but the grip was just a little cramped for me.

Re: Please educate me on Flashlights

I’ve never handled a SF so cannot comment. All I can say is that - for me - after 3 decades of daily inspections of very dark places, LEDs then 18650 cells were the game changers. I can understand why integral charging is increasingly popular, now, but stupidly complex UI’s and constant drain switch...

Re: Please educate me on Flashlights

Aren’t Surefire shock resistant for weapon mounting? I do like the P60 format. It seems much less popular now, but the Lego-ability of the format giving me the option of top drawer LED drop-ins and batteries in budget but robust bodies has been an absolute winner for me. Having said that, my latest...
