Re: Crazy Good Deals Part 2!!

They're kind of rare and I don't think they were sold to the USA kind of like the Janisong... People love them tho That's correct. The Bifold is an Eric Glesser design, intended to be a creative lock and opening style for a Swick/SPOT-style knife. Unfortunately, some ban-happy bureaucrats decided i...

Re: Gauntlet vs Sharpmaker differences?

Looks to me like the Gauntlet is designed to do what probably a sizable majority of likely users want - sharpen a knife easily. I find the sharpmaker easy, but the Gauntlet is simpler, has no way to set wrongly (many knives will not readily sharpen at 30 degrees inclusive, but most decent knives wil...

Re: Crazy Good Deals Part 2!!

Crap, missed the Dodo. That one I am definitely interested in. Love the Dodo and M4.

There's a Respect/Opus combo. Basically a free Opus. Haven't handled a Respect but it looks awesome.

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 ...

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.

Re: What to do with chipped corners on Sharpmaker rods?

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...
