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...

Re: Any grip/wrist strength enthusiasts here?

Same here @Naperville. Watched some YouTube stuff, but never did order anything. Hope you get some useful bits out of them. Connor, I agree on the function over form. It’s almost like a secret weapon. You can have a monster grip and no one would necessarily suspect it. Most gym guys don’t even serio...

Re: Any grip/wrist strength enthusiasts here?

The wrestler Mark Henry comes to mind. He has amazing grip strength. He's one of only two men on earth who have successfully cleaned and pressed the famous Inch dumbbell overhead with one hand. (The other being Thomas Inch himself.) Pretty sure I saw Brian Shaw do the Inch dumbbell (?). Maybe it wa...

Re: Any grip/wrist strength enthusiasts here?

Nice! I rarely run across someone who even knows what a Captains of Crush gripper is. My elementary school PE teacher was one of the first (or the first) guys to close the #4, Richard Sorin. I only own the old #1. When I mountain biked a lot, I could do 15-20 reps on that one (handles touching) jus...

Re: Are you a collector?

I have an addiction that has led to a collection. I use most of what I have. There are only a small hand full that haven’t been put to use.

Re: 2020 Spyderco Forum Calendar Contest!

We had some tree damage a couple of years ago when a hurricane blew through our area. I saved some really hard live oak to carve on, and this was when I found the wonders of M4 edge stability in the Gayle Bradley 1. It is almost puukko-like in the proximity of the edge to the handle and makes for a ...

Re: Skinning knives, gift

The Bradley Junction is on closeout for a good deal now btw. Solid knife.

That Stretch Hap40 remains one of my favorite knives. It is really, really good. And well suited for this application.

Re: Spyderco Province Photos

Hey Jim, First off, congratulations! That has to be incredibly thrilling to have your design released into production, and by such a solid company to boot. I wanted to ask if you could share some of the design thoughts/inspiration on the handle design? I'll go out on a limb and venture to guess you'...

Re: Best Spydie for kayaking and canoeing...

I think boating, especially where you’re sitting in tight quarters 100% of the time, is the best case for a neck knife. So I’d give the nod here to the upcoming Swick 5 in LC200N.

Re: Spyderedged Sprint Runs? It's Time Has Come

How about a double edged SE? Twice the fun. Or instead of sharing the real-estate of a mixed PE/SE edge, make a double edge that’s 100% PE on one side, and 100% SE on the other. Call it a Utility Dagger. :)

FRN mug with wire clip Handel :cool: Man, if FRN is possible it would be pretty incredible. As long as it wasn’t $200. :eek: Even an FRN covered handle would be pretty cool. Very Spyderco. Love pottery mugs, but this calls for the standard black with a logo or 2. IF it was pottery mug, it needs to ...

Re: Asking for advice: How to restore a (just slightly) blunted tip?

You don’t need a bench grinder for something that minor. I’d recommend a hand file, followed by sand paper to refine the finish once you have the shape you want. I did this with a file and sand paper in about an hour. I WOULD recommend a bench grinder for this. ;) I don’t have one though and volunte...

Re: Crazy deals @ Sierra and other places

Thx for the heads up on the Junction. Too good a deal to pass up for some thin PSF27. $119 from DLT with some points. :)

DLT rocks man. They ship within an hour every time I order. My favorite vendor by far. :spyder: :spyder: :spyder:

Re: Manix 2 Cruwear Smooth G10

I have the smooth G10 Para 3. It has become my most carried Spydie. Contrary to the name, it is surprisingly grippy. It offers a bit of resistance when you try to slide a thumb over it. So I’m glad I didn’t ignore it based on how many folks express disdain for the smooth.

Re: Just ordered some Nano Oil *cough snake oil cough*

What I really need is a small enough torque wrench/driver so I can set the pivot screws all equally. Then I guess it'll be just how it feels. That doesn't seem very scientific and I feel like I'm already biased towards my grease but I'll do my best. I think I'll show the Mrs how to lube a pivot and...
