Re: Need help making a decision

I’ve head mostly good things about Spyderco’s CS, other than a few complaints of delays in and around super busy times of the year for them. I’ve also heard mostly good things about CR CS. As far as reblasting the scales, if I ever send a knife in for repair it’ll have a note on it asking to not “pr...

Re: Grip discussion

As for the Rhino, I've never held one but even if my hand were small enough to get all fingers on the grip it would mean some of my fingers would land right on the points, and I guess I just love myself too much to do that. I’ve got lrg-xlrg hands but I can squeeze all four on the Rhino, and yes fi...

Re: Grip discussion

I can squeeze 4 on the Rhino but agree it’s a three finger knife, pinky wraps around behind pretty nice though making it a 3 1/2 grip I guess. Even after sanding the tail end of my pm2’s I feel cramped if I put my thumb on the ramp. I like the Amalgam, lots of room on that handle. These days I’m lov...

Re: What's the one that got away?

Well I posted this yesterday but for some reason a lot if my posts aren’t showing up lately? Anyways, I passed up on a Tuff a couple times and now they’re gone, and any that pop up on secondary go for $600 and that’s not happening. Guess I’ll wait and hope for a sprint run in Cruwear or 4v...

Re: What's your favorite Spyderco that's a little bit of a "hidden gem?"

Although I don’t carry it often, my blue Lava. It’s a great little package opener. And being bright blue makes it look friendlier.

Re: Time Travel Revisited: What kind of effects?

My understanding is that time travel forward and back is theoretically possible. First forward, is “easily” already achievable. The faster you move, the slower time moves or something like that. They’ve synced atomic clocks, sent one into fast orbit. When it returns they compare the clocks and the o...

Re: Vote: SMOCK v.s. IKUCHI

$300 is unfortunately not an exaggeration. Going price in Canada is $180, plus shipping and taxes puts it at $200. A Ripps clip after shipping and exchange,(assuming no duties or import fees) is $100. I really like the design of it and if it came with a useable clip I’d grab one. Now I certainly se...

Re: Vote: SMOCK v.s. IKUCHI

The lock is fantastic. Mine takes a little more force to disengage than my para2 (tension on the lock bar is a bit more) but is easier to press the button than digging a fingertip in so it ends up far easier to use. However I have never accidentally disengaged the lock on the Smock or my custom SK2...

Re: Vote: SMOCK v.s. IKUCHI

Owning 2 Ikuchi I think that says allot. The Smock is a knife of interest. Wonder when we will see them available for purchase at Blade HQ or GPknives again? The side button for the compression lock however neat and unique of an idea that is does not strike me as a particularly secure method to ret...

Re: Vote: SMOCK v.s. IKUCHI

Smock, I love everything about mine. I like the design of the Ikuchi but it’s got a wire clip so no go for me. They dig in and move around in use. Perhaps one day I’ll pick one up second hand making it affordable enough to splurge on a Ripps clip, otherwise it’ll end up a $300 knife. I love turtles,...

Re: What's your 2 knife EDC system?

Two knives and a prybar/caplifter is my daily carry. The Smock has been and will continue to be my front pocket carry. The slipjoint rides in my back pocket and I change which one I carry all the time. The “Chunky Drunk” saves my knives from any risk of being used to pry something and cracks open a ...

Re: Achieving blade drop without blade play

As mentioned it usually takes the right combination of pivot and stop pin tightening/loosening. When I have a knife that’s not quite perfect action out of the box, what I like to do is slightly over tighten and use for a few days. Then I pull it apart, clean and I use fishing reel oil to relube most...

Re: Who else is getting an Ikuchi as soon as they are released?

I like the look of the Ripps clips and they look like they would reduce or eliminate the hotspot that makes wire clips unusable for me. Unfortunately the knife, plus clip, shipping and exchange rates turns the Ikuchi into nearly a $300 knife and that’s if I don’t get hit with import fees/duties on t...

Re: CBBL vs Compression Lock: Which Action is More Satisfying When Broken/Dialed In

Hard question to answer. Partially because they both have a different feel and partly because my older blacked out PM2 has a drastically different detent than my newer Cruwear one. If it were between the older one with its weaker detent, my Manix2 wins hands down but my newer PM2 gives the Manix a r...

Re: The Drunken: Amazing Knife, Ruined by its Pocket Clip.

As a lefty this knife is useless to me since it can’t be carried left hand but to me the simple solution has already been mentioned. Take the clip off, bend it a little and good to go. I bend all my clips for stronger retention as it is. Also I usually bend down the ramp a little so it doesn’t catc...
