Re: 2020 SouthFork Sprint Poll

I really have my doubts if Spyderco is going to make Southfork again. I don't think that this model flew off the shelves when it was a regular production model. I would love to see Phil's collaboration in the price range of 200€ .....but one man can still dream. Agreed. Fixed blades already lag beh...

Re: Canis in black DLC --any interest?

Probably a no for me. Every time I relent and buy a DLC blade, I find I just don’t enjoy looking at it as much as a stonewashed/satin blade. Even losing the slick feel wiping the blade down is less enjoyable. Little details.

Buying filters...the only way to save $ with this sickness. ;)

Reminds me of a cross between a Gayle Bradley and Jot Singh Khalsa blade. Interested to hear how folks like this one.

Re: Wharncliffe Salt 2 wear

So are Salts not H1 throughout? I know there’s been the occasional spotting on blades assumed to be belt contamination from other steels ground into the surface.

Is this case just a ferrous hardware/dissimilar metals issue?

Re: Siren

Every model with textured g10 should have this level of grip in my opinion. I agree. After carrying mine for a couple of months, the G-10 edginess has smoothed out and now it's just the right amount of texture. Exactly. It’s good to see it on the yojumbo. Let’s hope the trend catches on. Is the Yoj...

Re: Pacific Salt praise

Had to throw this one in here for you Vivi. :) This is my first Pac Salt, a mod/regrind I bought from a maker. It has a thin convex grind.

Re: C-60 Ayoob Campaign: No I Won't Shut Up

Teeth are gaining momentum with Afis, but not with the general public. So, I can see more Sprints in SE, but the same declining trend among non-Afis. I'm not so sure about that, especially concerning combo edges at least. My buddy is sort of my "non knife AFI but still uses a knife a lot" guinea pi...

The using for sure. Even on the same knife, just having a screaming sharp edge vs a dull one is a source of joy.

I just finished chopping mine down to 7" OAL, and widening the access cutout, w/ a ramp to the cutout. Adding the clip tomorrow, but can't decide which. I'll post pics in the next couple days once it's done. Wowzers, you are bold to chop this one down! Dittos! Looking fwd to seeing that. I was wond...

Flitz here if it’s early and light rust. I don’t remove patina if I can help it though.
