Re: Byrd Cara Cara 2 Emerson Opener: NEAT!

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 ...

Hey Brother haven't seen you around in a while :) .

Re: Now's the time: For a New Hawkbill!!!

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.

Re: BHQ with a hap40 Lum Tanto exclusive?

It's just rare for it to even approach this level of heatedness, vgex. It seems that there was some confusion between the practical realities of manfacture and the good faith attempt to put out a good product. That Sal has handled so many of these threads with the grace and stoicism he has impresses...

Re: Spices that keep bugs away

Yeah, smoke is a fairly reliable bug repellant in general. Some folks in rural areas burn their used motor oil to keep skeeters away - and it works, though it may not be the most environmentally friendly thing, or the healthiest smoke to breathe in. Pennyroyal is supposed to be rather effective at r...

Re: More info and question on Knife Quality vs Price for you all

I would say that anyone advertising a D2 stainless steel blade, unless they are talking about CTS-XHP or similar, either doesn't know what they are describing or is trying to pass off some other (almost certainly far cheaper) steel as D2. I've seen some simple fixed D2 knives sell in the 50-70 dolla...

Re: Best budget blades ($50 and under)

I've been carrying these two lately. Kershaw CQC-6K and MTech JN-902. The CQC is a reasonable size, looks pretty good, good action as is typical of Kershaws in this range - and I like the wave feature. Not useful for opening beer bottles, sadly :P but just a good solid feeling knife that feels less ...

Re: Your most comfy boot...

I have a pair of decent light hiking boots (Keen) but am thinking about something more heavy duty - my other boots like that are inexpensive and not super durable (but have held up reasonably well). These threads always interest me. I'm not sure I'm ready for a pair of Nick's but am leaning toward s...

Re: Knife identification

Agreed with Doc Dan. There are a good number of collectors an aficionados with expert knowledge willing to help out, not the least of whom being Mr. Bernard Levine himself. Read the sticky posts on asking a question correctly for best results.

Re: I sinned today.

The only Benchmades I usually like are the balis - they are pretty nice if harder to get and pricier than they once were.

This one, murphjd25, looks pretty nice. Kind of a mix of a classic style with more modern action. I would consider trying one out if I got a really good deal on it.

Re: A little look at the FRN Meadowlark 2...

The choils are certainly what drew me to these three. One thing that did surprise me though was how different the Robin feels in the hand when compared to the Dragonfly - the Robin feels more 'full-size' to me. I'll have to stick a Robin review up at some point. I've not tried a G10 Byrd yet but 's...

Re: MAP policy change? 35%

While many prices may be higher, I have never seen a manufacturer be as transparent about pricing as Spyderco.
