Re: Tactical Pens Revisited

Agreed with paul about a more compliance use - I always think of them more as kubotans than pokey things. I have one of the early S&W pens - a little clunky, poor cartridge, but stout (used it as a jack handle once when I couldn't find mine) and it was only about 20-25 bucks. I like my CRKT Tao pen ...

Re: A tribute to "Crazy deals @ ......"

Wow. I'm going to avoid.commenting about specifics, but I could see easily being baited into contributing to the derailment, and I'm glad it's no longer an option.

Crazy deals is dead. Long live crazy deals!

Re: Byrd Hawkbill

It's very close to the same size as the tasman, with a little less cutting edge due to the choil. I like the choil and the shallower serrations are less likely to hang up, but the tasman will tear a bit more. Both are fine choices.

Yeah, someone knocked one of my fine rods on a brick patio and it took out a chip - just replaced it when I had the chance.

Re: Sell me on a byrd

I'm not really adding anything new here, but I find almost every byrd to feel and perform as solidly as spyderco counterparts, and the designs to be largely a matter of taste. Some of the spyderco equivilent designs I might like better at times (I like choils on most knives). The blade geometry is s...

Re: How do you disassemble a SS handle?

I have found both spydie and byrd SS handles to be quite durable. Never an issue, and I like how the flush pins and hadle polish make them look and feel a lot like the entire handle is one milled out piece.

Re: Byrd Hawkbill

I would definitely be interested in a byrd equivalent of the spyderhawk. Hawkbills don't always sell well but some of us would definitely like it. IIRC the crossbill is very close to Spyderhawk size - wouldn't mind a serrated option on that, even as a sprint or similar. I really like the hawkbill. I...

Re: Byrd Clips

ZenDog, As far as I know, all steels used in byrds are stainless, but light corrosion happens at times - I think some of the formulas are a little less corrosion resistant and maybe a bit less consistent than most of the US/Japan/Europe steels. I have seen some light corrosion occasionally, but noth...

Re: Byrd wings and wings slipit

My fullsize wings had no issues - it has 2 fine blades but is a bit big and clunky - it cuts fine but doesn't carry well compared to other models. It came with a stout woven nylon belt sheath just like the byrd wrench, I just don't usually use those. It is too thick to clip comfortably to a pocket I...

I am stoked - I love my (missing) waved Matriarch2 and have been carrying a Kershaw Emerson lately. Stoked to be able to get a byrd Emerson and will likely get another waved M2 so I can carry a waved SE and PE from my favorite maker. If you like waved blades and haven't tried a byrd yet, this is the...

Re: Spyderco Byrd Raven questions for sal and everyone.

BD-1 is basically a US-made version on Gin-1/G-2, which was one of the earlier "super steels" combining great corrosion resistance with durability and edge-holding closer to what was expected of a decent tool steel at the time. I didn't see much of a difference when the Hitachi/Spyderco proprietary ...

I don't know if I like the Swick-style Spyderhawk (Swawk?) or the Karambit-style Spyderhawk (Karawk?) idea better. I'll take one of each.
