Re: Centofante love?

I love the 3 and 4. We really need a sprint run 4.

It does have one liner for the clip.

It may be a lower hollow grind but it is 2mm stock and slices well. The 4 is a sold performer.

The palladium bug is classy.

Re: Manix titanium ball bearing cage

i wish spyderco had used a different material than plastic for the g10 manix. i’ve never thought the plastic looked or felt right with the g10. it’s fine for the lw though. The Manix cage is an intricate part. Making it metal requires machining a small part. These aftermarket cages are over $30 and...

Re: Manix titanium ball bearing cage

My copper cage feels just like the plastic one did. It was a little tight at first but I only had to open and close it a couple dozen times and it smoothed right out.

If BladeHQ does a run of these it will sell out.

Re: The PERFECT Double Bladed Folder?

Ergonomics and clip position. 1) Make the serrated blade a two handed opener and bury it in the handle so the second hump isn’t an ergonomic nightmare. 2) Move the clip up closer to the end of the knife. I am not a fan of deep carry but that high ridin’ Clip position on the Dyad is a no go. 3) Maybe...

Why the Cricket and not something like the Equlibrium?
I would be in favor of a larger Balance.

Re: Victorinox "Champ" model?

I regularly carry a Vic. Craftsman which is a six layer SAK, almost as big as the champs. I cannot really carry and use any over 6 layers. I really like my craftsman though. It has sadly been discoed for many years now. The truth is that these large SAKs are no bigger or heavier than the plier based...

Re: SEKI-CITY JAPAN looks hand etched

Seki has been sending out knives with wonky font like that for a while now. That alone does not signify a fake in my opinion.

Re: Why all the Manix love?

Spyderco has made some ugly knives, in my opinion the Manix is not one of them. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and all that but at least the Manix isn’t the Dodo, Poliwog, Gunting or Jot Sing Khalsa. Those knives have faces that only a mother could love. ;)

Re: Bench Stone F vs UF

My UF stones came with red ink on the ends and my fine stones came with nothing on the ends.

I can tell just by dragging my nail across them. The UF is actually much much smoother.

Edit: sorry, that is my sharpmaker rods. My UF bench stone has “UF” written on the ends in sharpie.

Re: Why all the Manix love?

I don’t worry what others think about my knife. There was a smooth CF exclusive from KC. I am not a huge Manix fan. The ergos are secure but I wouldn’t call them comfortable. I also dislike the superfluous jimping. I actually prefer the ManixLW over the G10 version. That said, I am carrying my grey ...
