Re: designs - evolution - lifting

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, as they say. At least it’s on something good.

Re: Slipit as a base for testing new steels

I would guess the number of units required is roughly equal to, say, the number of every VToku2 variant issued.

How about “just” including a slipjoint in future steel sprint runs? Seki used to make Spyderco slipjoints after all.

Re: Happy Birthday ChrisinHove!

Thank you! My daughter managed to bag me tickets for The Who* in their smallest venue for 40 years at the start of their 2020 tour. They were only £6 / $8 and sold out in several seconds, unsurprisingly! *showing my age, I know I saw The WHO the very first time in December of 1975 :eek: It wasn't l...

Re: Anyone fitted a Flytanium Brouwer scale or deep carry clip?

I have now received the CF Flytanium scale from a European retailer and have fitted it. Fits superbly well. Feels great in the hand and in the pocket. No discernible degradation of the action. Weighs so much less it feels like an entirely different knife. It is possibly less suited to cutting girder...

Re: Why the lack of Elmax options -- are any on the horizon?

I reckon another Elmax Urban would be well received. Being Maniago made, might it not avoid the steel tariffs, as well?

Re: Early days thoughts on the Brouwer

The lock bar on mine is also a very slight S - I guess it is to keep the lock bar insert component in alignment. Lock bar spring tension is decent.

Re: Earth is round and orbits the sun. FACTS.

Well they did manage to stem the ozone depletion in the Antarctic, didn’t they, at least until the PRC started cheating on CFC’s .... There was no OZONE problem that was man made. ;) Really? That is a little controversial!! Please elaborate. It's part of the delusion of people who think that humans...

On one hand I get the scepticsm, on the other hand I can’t see that changing the chemical composition of our atmosphere, if indeed we are, can have no effect.

Good, Flytanium excludes the steel liner, good move.
I still like the texture of G10 and BRG is still one of my fav. Note my brother had an Austin Healy Sprite back in the day and I learned to drive on it.
What a great little car! From an entirely different age of motoring.
