Re: Crazy Good Deals Part 2!!

Oh man, I was following prime day and din't think to check here or look for spydies. Would have bought at least a few of those at those prices.

Re: Crazy Good Deals Part 2!!

I missed out on the GB when first out and thought I'd missed the second, but now I saved 20 bucks or so. Thanks. I have noticed that while AZ customer knives seems to focus on high end (read: more than I'm ready to pay for) knives, they often have very reasonable prices. Both the GB2 and the Schempp...

Re: Crazy Good Deals Part 2!!

I haven't bought a Manix 2 for a few years, and I don't have anything with 20CV yet (though it seems to be a populat steel among some good makers), so I got the red one.

Re: Rockjumper vs. Delica Wharncliffe

I really like the wharnie Delica, but the Rock Jumper has a nice handle and it is just a little longer. That length is pretty much all blade, and there is not a lot of non-edge real estate on that RJ blade. A lot of cutting power for its size, but a third of an inch honestly isn't enough to make me ...

Re: Li'l Temperance 3: A (not so) li'l review

I don't have trouble with the blade hitting my palm or wrist, but as I looked at this post and tried it, it was clear that the angle of the knife in relation to my hand made a big difference. As one might expect, changing grip when the knife is roughly parallel to the forearm/wrist could lead to the...

Re: Crazy Good Deals Part 2!!

I jusy received my Lil' Temp 3 and it is a seriously solid knife. Blade is about the same length as a Delica with about 1/4" longer edge, but almost twice as thick and mich wider. A bit stiff compared to my PM2 where the blade swings more or less freely on lock engagement, but still feels great and ...

Re: Meadowlark-2 / Delica-4 Blade Swap

The blade and lockbar are hand-fitted into each knife. They need to be swapped together as the tolerances are such that swapping just the blades is likely to cause poor fitment or locking, or perhaps just not fit at all. And that's delica to delica, or meadowlark to meadowlark. Huge difference betwe...

Re: Re-examining 9Cr18Mo as an option

I'm happy enuogh with the Sandvik 12c27 on a couple of my moras. 14c28n would be even better. I got a couple of the 9Cr18Mo Mule 5s, and while I seem to recall hearing about some warping issues (this was a bit more than a decade ago and the only Mule I could afford at the time), I never noticed it o...

Re: Byrd Cara Cara 2 Emerson Opener: NEAT!

I got this and a replacement Matriarch 2 earlier this year and carry them every day most of the time since. Great knives, and the CC2 is a killer deal.

Re: Really happy with my first byrd

I have found that it is still possible to get Titanium byrds if one looks around. I think one of them is available at the SFO, and it's marked down presumably for closeout to a similar price as some of the big knife vendors online. I got a Cara Cara 2 and Meadowlark 2 and they are very nice. lighter...

Re: Byrd neck knife? ”Byrd Swick”?

In case people dig the Swick and didn't know, there are two versions of the LC200 Swick 5 available for preorder at various places. i understand the difference between the variants is the size of the hole. I figured the larger one would leave room for gloves, so I'm getting one each in PE and SE. Ex...

Re: Robin 2 poking my eyes

Both my Robin and Cara Cara G10s really impressed me with their quality. They felt solid and looked good. I didn't take them apart to check the liners, though, and I think I may have given both to friends.

That's awesome, Sal! I have no idea which ones would be bigger sellers, but I'd probably buy a couple at byrd prices. Maybe more.

Re: Crazy Good Deals Part 2!!

Aw man, sorry to have missed that stepped Chapparal deal. May still get one soon, but I'm hoping to pay just a little less. 150 would have done it for sure.

Re: Is there a BYRD in your pocket??

I've been carrying the Cara Cara 2 with Emerson opener as a PE companion to my Matriarch 2, also with Emerson opener. 2 great knives and I enjoy that "wave" function. also never need a bottle opener while they're on me.

PeaceInOurtime,
That's a great looking knife! Ti Meadowlark with a blade and lockbar swap? I might have to look out for a Ti Meadowlark!

Re: Really happy with my first byrd

I think I may have missed out - hope there will be other Ti models in the future. I do see some places still have Ti Robins in stock, I loved my G10 robin and imagine this would have a similar quality and solid feel while being lighter.
