Re: Sell me on the plain edge Tasman Salt 2

Can't speak to the Tasman, but I have the Spyderhawk in both SE and PE. The PE version gets more use because I don't mind beating the cr*p out of it but, if I was buying one today, I would only buy the SE. There really is no comparison in terms of cutting power.

Re: Caribbean Scales: Love, or Hate?

I like the Caribbean's scales. They feel good in my hand and I even like the bumblebee look.

The problem is a neck knife is either too big and too heavy, or it's too small to be useful.
Just like the Dragonfly is too small to be useful? ;)

Ladybug hawkbill fob on it. The fob lengthens the handle however long you want it to be.
^^^This!^^^
Loop the fob around your middle finger and it locks the knife into your closed hand.

If it has a CC number, it goes back.

Otherwise, I've never returned a knife.

it's my understanding that even H1 will corrode, given enough chlorine concentration.
At that point we're no longer talking about rust, we're talking about the results of exposing the metal to hydrochloric acid. ;)

Re: Neck Knives? Good or Bad?

One thing I've been wanting to ask you guys who EDC a Neck Knife is how you get around a few aspects of what you encounter by carrying one? For instance how do you deal with the unit swinging back and forth ?>> that to me would become annoying after a while. This is one of the reasons weight matter...

Re: Who wants a Dodo?

I'd like to get one in SE, to go with the PE one I own. Don't need any fancy steels; S30V like the original production run would be fine.

The idea is good, but really, where can you run around with a knife in plain view around your neck without looking like a lopper?
Southwest Virginia. People rarely take notice of either a neck knife or a belt knife and the few comments over the years have all been positive.

Re: Neck Knives? Good or Bad?

Personally, I'm a big fan of neck knives. I find them a useful addition to the folder in my pocket and even more useful when I'm pocket challenged. That said, I consider many of the neck knives on the market to be too big and heavy to be carried in that manner and better suited to belt carry. IMHO, ...

Re: Is this a grip that you use?

Depends on the knife, depends on what I'm doing, but yes, I often use that grip. FWIW, I wear a size medium glove and the fingers are always too long.

Re: Have you had a folding knife open on accident?

Back when you could still carry a knife on an airplane, the FRN Cricket I was using as a money clip opened while I was running to catch my connecting flight. I was very lucky not to get cut when I reached into my pocket for my money (but the Cricket was "cut" from my money clip lineup). The couple o...

Re: Old Forum Members: Where Are They These Days?

I've been here since the very earliest days (July 2000). There were a number of years when I was mostly buying custom knives and didn't visit much, but I've been back for a while now. Still don't post much.

Re: Why don't you have more spyderco fixed blades?

I guess the most basic reason I don't own more fixed blade Spydies is that I already have too many custom fixed blades that don't see enough use. Of course, I could say the same thing about folding Spydies but it doesn't seem to stop me from buying them.

Re: Can we get a Bill Ruple/ Spyderco collab?

Bill Ruple's work is topnotch, but I don't see where it would be a good fit with Spyderco. Mr. Ruple primarily makes traditional patterns that have been around for 100 years or more.

The Lanny's clip posted by Dazen is a relatively new pattern, but the design was created by Tony Bose, not Bill Ruple.
