I would certainly pay more for the better Damasteel variant. How much more is a different question, though...

Re: Knife monogamy is a satisfying yet boring life

D: Just put it down to wisdom and experience, and be happy!

My knife harem (I’m really stretching the metaphor here!) ranges from toothless old hard users all the way to out-and-out showpieces, but they all have to ‘sing out’ to me nowadays for some reason to stay.

Yiikes. I hope that’s not half as unpleasant as it sounds.

I’m loving “The Virginian”
I told you so. It is so well written and a lot of that is how these guys acted. It has some really funny stuff in it. (Along with shoot outs and girls)
It really is an excellent book. I finished it wondering whether I have had a glimpse of the soul of America.

War memoir recommendations, please.

If matters stay as they are, in a couple of weeks I will be reading, sitting in the sunshine in Saumur, France (the home of the French Cavalry and armoured corps, and site of a noteworthy battle in 1940 when the officer cadets fought an armoured division after the general surrender, “for honour alon...

Re: Damasteel UK Penknife UKPK - HANDLE OPTIONS

Ivory Micarta would get dirty soooo fast if actually carried in your pocket. Strictly a display model. That's a GREAT point. Light colored Micarta takes color from the oils/dirt on your hands/in your pockets FAST. This knife is definitely going to be a user for me (like all my knives). Trying to ke...

He was a genius, no doubt. I love the Romeo & Juliet theme but his spaghetti western tunes are simply incomparable.

Re: Watu...AKA Lil Chokwe

Evidently I can resist everything but temptation ... my Watu arrived this week! I really like it in hand and just love the blade profile! I must admit to swapping out the wire clip to one of the darkened ones, though. ... and the comp lock cut-out most certainly isn’t the car-crash some reviewers wo...

Re: Anyone else Aeropress coffee?

Am I the the only one that drinks instant coffee? Had it in jail... had in various other countries... I feel like it keeps me humble and gets the job done. It’s easy when camping/hunting... I just live with the various brands. A cup and some hot water is all you need! As if jail wasn’t punishment e...

CBBL. Works great for me on the Manix XL, not so much on the standard version, which is why I have the BL.

Oh yes ... My most obscure coffee brewer is the cuccumella ... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neapolitan_flip_coffee_pot It’s best for outdoors/camping because it has a tendency to jet scalding water out of it’s vent when flipped....

Re: Anyone else Aeropress coffee?

I most definitely want to try one of these "Aeropress" units. Anything in the line of "coffee" always gets my attention. Not trying to get off the subject but another "coffee" related item that seems to be taking off in the past year or so are those coffee "pour over" devices. I was just given one ...

Re: Kiwi 5?

What changes would you make in a Kiwi5? For me, the Kiwi 4 was somewhat depressing. It embodied the truth of Whittier's "of all sad words of tongue and pen, the saddest are these, it might have been". If there was ever to be a Kiwi 5 they should, at the very least, omit the clip and replace the pee...

Re: Kiwi 5?

I think the Kiwi 4 failed because it didn't quite fit anywhere. It didn't have fancy scale inlays and bolsters so it didn't fit in with the gent's knife crowd, it was basic black G10 but wasn't tactical enough to compete with a Para 2, and it was "just VG10" so it didn't appeal to the steel snob cr...
