Re: What is your dominant hand / forum statistics

Lefty. Of course as a lefty forced to be and naturally somewhat ambidextrous. I love that Spyderco has many left carry models.

Re: Slysz Swayback

This is the one we’re talking about right? Love the look of this thing, lefty friendly carry option please. 2EE94B43-E34F-4871-9336-F32896184526.jpeg I can see a tip-up wire clip left or right as a good-look. I can see how a wire clip is probably the best candidate for this one although I much pref...

Re: Talking about your traditional knives

My latest is a GEC 35 calf pen in knifebrite. It’s a real sturdy build. A bit chunky but fills the hand. Blades are ground very thin and even. Probably the best I’ve had from GEC. I plan on really beating on this one.

Re: Kids Knife Kits

I picked up a pair of the gitd Delica kits for my boys this Xmas. They are 7&9. They both like things that glow. Although they both know knives aren’t toys, I suspect these will end up in the hands/paws? of “killer Elmo” (a strange game they play,lol!) So I think the plastic will hold up better than...

This is Harley, she is a rescue so her breeds are a bit of a guess. She was rescued along with her mom who is mostly Mastiff/Boxer... I suspect Dad was at least partly Rhodesian Ridgeback.

32D1994E-58B9-42E3-954B-9F39D0E55B3D.jpeg Is that a reground Almagram?! I like! I knew before I got it that I would be changing the blade shape. I looked at it and saw a clip point asking to come out! You cant tell in this pic but I also took a few mm off the handle allowing it to open as a slow ro...

Re: What "Other" is in your pocket???

Real Steel Luna. Only just got this yesterday but I really like it. Nice thin blade stock, ground super thin behind the edge. Light but snappy and smooth action. Super modern “traditional”.

Re: Talking about your traditional knives

So this one doesn’t really qualify as a traditional to me, but it’s a slipjoint so maybe. Real steel Luna, titanium handle, n690 and a pocket clip. Thin blade stock, ground super thin behind the edge. Really liking it so far.

Re: Talking about your traditional knives

The modern traditionals definitely are nice, I particularly like the modern detent system Viper employed on the CK EZ Open. They managed to be thoroughly modern while still keeping a quite traditional look. 3E43A791-B8E9-47D2-AFAD-0BCB93005680.jpeg Still, a GEC or other actual traditionally made sli...

Re: The Smock...

I decided to give the Smock a few days with the deep carry I picked up for my PM2. (For my hand the deep carry on the PM2 is more comfortable). Now it definitely isn’t as comfortable on the Smock, but it’s not terrible so I left it on and got another for my PM2. I might eventually swap back to the f...

Re: EDC prybar

I’ve posted about this one before, but happy to again! My K’roo “Chunky Drunk”, I emailed him my idea, then after a little refinement this was the result. It’s my most used tool. Sooo handy.

Re: Talking about your traditional knives

Just picked up a GEC 29 in bloodwood. Gotta love an awl, so handy! Anyways, this one’s special for a reason other than being a great knife. You see it has the cloud shield, GEC is calling it a keyhole shield but I’ve always called it and seen it called a cloud. The cloud is of significance because w...
