Re: Any grip/wrist strength enthusiasts here?

The Mastiff Hey Joe, not to go too OT, but have you read any of Rory Miller’s books? You brought him to mind with your post about prison work and violence. Interesting subject. Never heard of him. I'll google him and maybe try to read the book. I rarely read or watch any shows set in prisons. I had...

Literally, a shit knife.

I thought I had seen it all, but no.

Knife scales made of cow dung and pink resin, on a le London style slipjoint in a French knife shop.

I bought the one with ebony scales and Canadian maple inlay instead....

It works sooooo well here*, why not?

Re: Any grip/wrist strength enthusiasts here?

Interesting topic!

I used to be well into it when younger. Rugby, Judo and rock climbing were my sports, all tremendously benefiting from strong grip and fingers.

I had a zig-zag spring steel arrangement. No doubt there was better, but that was when money was very tight.

Re: Reveal, lack of anticipation, general thoughts.

The problem with the Reveal, as I see it, is that if there’s nothing published that appeals, then there is literally nothing to keep your interest.

I don’t mind waiting for something, maybe even enjoy the anticipation, but it’s very hard waiting for maybe nothing.

Re: Oh Where Oh Where Has Our Little SEF Gone...

I’d certainly miss SEF if he didn’t return. Half his posts made me shake my head, but the other half made me think.

We’ll have to send out a search party into the Scissors Forums ....

Re: Wolfspyder?

Nicely made. Stout. Second detente means it has slow action. Small. Big thumb cut-out compromises the grip comfort imho.

Re: Is that knife really that important?

You’re a wise man, Doc. For myself I can see there is a difference between the enjoyment of owning an item, and the joy that item itself brings. The latter is nowadays far more important to me, so that owning various iterations of the same knife adds little extra interest. That’s what I keep telling...

Re: Oxycodone warning

I hadn’t heard of it so I googled - it’s that strong it’s only available by injection here. 1 1/2 times as strong as morphine....

Thanks for passing this on, Doc. Still time for a few “the drugs made me do it” purchases, though?

At $65, I'll buy any blade steel variation of this knife.
Anything I've considered flawed, has so far been easily fixed.
At 65, I would as well. At 105, not so much.

Re: Urban LW Coyote—realistic look

Really, however, there are no excuses for an exposed tip (or any of the other blemishes tbh) either leaving the factory or passing Golden’s QC check.

I will certainly be waiting for product reviews before buying Maniago again.

Re: Any detriment by having 2 pairs of PB washers on my Ouroborous?

Thanks, guys.

By luck the washers I bought fitted, although the corner of the lock bar had to be rounded off a tiny bit with a SM rod.

The scales popped off the lanyard tube, no problem. Reassembly was a tiny bit fiddly but not difficult.

I always liked this knife but this has improved it for me.

Hey Chris, 0.02mm is less than 0.001”. I can’t see that you’re likely to get it much better. :cool: Hahah! Yeah, fluke or what! Reminds of me when I replaced the cylinder head gasket on my old push-rod ford engine as an 18 y.o. My old man was abroad at the time, and went ape-**** when I told him I ...
