Re: What Spyderco is in your pocket today??

Police4 on my weekly hike at work. It is developing quite the patina and in the background are enough stinging nettles to feed me all summer.

Re: What to do if someone tries to rob you with a knife?

Give him what he wants and then go home and hug your family. It is only stuff and stuff can be replaced. I got mugged once. I gave them my wallet and there was no cash in it so they took my credit cards and gave me my wallet back. He was going to take the whole wallet but I asked him to just take th...

Re: DLC SE Dodo...A plea to BladeHeadquarters (BHQ)

I hate coated blades.

That said, BHQ has done DLC on all, or at least most, of these Jade/M4 knives so you should be in luck. :)

Happy Fathers Day Sal!

Me and my 4 year old went out for sushi for lunch and I used my Police4 to cut pieces of sushi in half for him. Thanks! :)

Re: Bad design choice?

That BHK you posted is intended as a bushcraft/survival knife. Not sure if that is the Scout Platoon or Highlander? I have thought about getting a Highlander in the past but never did. They may have left a little guard for safety. That blade shape is just based on old trade knives and has been done ...

Re: M390 CTS-204P 20CV :) Hype Steel

I almost bought one of those Lionsteel traditionals. I want to believe that Lionsteel just botched that one. I really, really hope they didn’t target 51 HRC on purpose.

While I am happy that this information is being made available it also has other issues that come up related to it. I am always in favor of more data as long as we understand what it means. This data can easily be misused or misunderstood. Like the old saying goes, “knowing just enough to be dangero...

Re: M390 CTS-204P 20CV :) Hype Steel

I am a skeptic of "influencers" myself and in a way sort of detest that they have the pull they have. They are the ones who started the S30V is crap and ZT’s Elmax is bad stuff years ago and “influencers” weren’t even a big thing then. S30V years ago had a bad rap because of issues that occured whe...

Re: If you could only have TWO Spyders...?

I left out sentimental knives because they just sit in the safe. I have two knives that I received as gifts that don't get carried and if I picked those two then I would have to carry a non Spydie daily and we know that ain't happening. If these were my only two Spydies I could get by. To be honest ...

Re: Oats

Instant oatmeal and quick oats are partially precooked, usually by steaming, so that they cook faster. They are supposedly nutritionally the same as slow cooked oats. Just wanted to clear that up. :) I like the way the slow cooked ones taste though. Persoanlly, I love oatmeal and we go through a lot...

Re: Why Do People Hate Knives?

Folks like what they like and dislike what they dislike. If someone told me they disliked knives I wouldn't be too shocked. However, someone once told me that they didn't like ice cream. I'll tell you what, there are two types of people in this world, those who like ice cream and people who I do not...

Re: M390 CTS-204P 20CV :) Hype Steel

The hardness of Maxamet has nothing to do with what we are talking about and liking Cruwear at 61-63 has nothing to do with M390 at 59 performing like S30V when it isn't supposed to. I have been underwhelmed with the M390/CTS-204P/CPM-20CV steels so far and this information explains why. It isn’t a ...
