Re: Paramilitary 2 - CTS-204p Question

Yeah, I think what you have there is a grind line. What most likely happened there is a deeper-than-normal scratch was made by the coarse belt, and the subsequent finer grits failed to mute it. It's not by any means a defect, and certainly nothing to worry about. They are all over my knives, certain...

I haven't bought a folder in a year and a half. I thought I had everything I needed. Then I saw that blue Para 3. I need that NOOOOOOOW!

This! There are a lot of sharp things that you can use to cut stuff, but they're worthless if you can't hold them!

Re: Tanto PM2 Support Thread

This is the first I'm hearing of this, and I must say, I'm intrigued. I love my Lum Tanto, but it is a big knife and I'm finding myself trending towards smaller blades more and more lately. But god help them if they do it in natural G-10 and M4. They played that out fast.

Re: Caribbean One Year Teardown.

The best kind of review! Thanks indeed for taking the time to share. It's good to know that the most minimal amount of care will keep this sort of knife running like new!

Re: Your views on machetes?

When I have to defend my house from nature, I use what I guess you could consider a small machete. It's from Ontario Knife Co., they call it the Night Stalker 9 which I don't like to tell people because while I do use it to chop down stalks, I do it during the day time. It's 9.5" of 1/4" thick 5160 ...

Re: White Handle

^Polished G-10 in white is cool. Regular peel-ply G-10 in white is not something I'd want. I think Cruwear grey is as light as I'd like for peel-ply G-10. White FRN...hmm...you know what? Maybe.

Re: C-46 Lum Tanto Folder: For an EDC anyone?

Oh I enjoy carrying mine very much. It's pointy and great at opening boxes. I don't carry it often, however, purely as a result of its size. I don't carry my big knives much anymore since 5 days a week I'm mostly sitting on my butt and just don't need that much cutting firepower. If there was a baby...

Before that it cut up a bunch of pumpkin flesh to go into the freezer.
Cooked or raw? I just used my stainless Delica to cut open a pumpkin that I roasted whole so I could scoop out the goods and puree it for all kinds of good stuff! :)

Re: K390 fans rejoice!

Laminated or not, put some G-10 handles on the Delica and put my address on the box! Not holding my breath for that though. I imagine if they're doing the whole family in it, it will simply be a different color FRN.

Ouch! That sounds painful. Did you break anything? It was, but not so bad that I couldn't ride 2 hours home on it. I broke my 5th metatarsal, the bone in the outside of your foot. The surgeon must have done a bang-up job cuz it doesn't hurt at all now. I haven't taken any of the dope they gave me. ...

You could sell me just about anything with an orange handle, FYI. Handles are about the only things that excite me these days. I do want this knife and the Siren, but I decided only when there was a non-black version would I open myself up to love again. I haven't bought a knife in over a year. Gimm...

Re: C46 Hap40 Lum Sprint run touch up and spa.. at Golden?

I don't know if what you're looking for is even possible. The thing about those lamination lines is that the angles are so low that they really amplify any imperfections in flatness and straightness of the heat treated steel. You could have a perfect grind profile, but those lines might not be perfe...

I still don't know how you guys flick with anything other than your thumb. I don't think my hands are the right shape because I just can't get it to work. I'm a habitual thumb flicker, but with the PM2 I also sometimes like to open the lock and wrist flick it open. It's a complex motion to make sure...

Re: Stretch 2 Saber Grind BD1N G-10 Diamond Weave

I'm not a hunter (yet), but I did have a decent career as a butcher, and I'd never want to carve an animal with a saber ground knife. Nor would I expect the knife that I'm using to do the slicing to also chop through bones or joints. I'd much rather carry two purpose-built tools that each do their j...

Re: Stretch 2 Saber Grind BD1N G-10 Diamond Weave

That wouldn't really be a Stretch anymore. What I like about my Spydercos is that they aren't gratuitously overbuilt. I hear you on wanting a fatter handle for comfort and to fit your hand, but for the sake of applying more force, I think what you really need is a different tool. Don't get me wrong,...
