Re: Help with 1st Gen Kapara?

My 1st gen Kapara is also just fine. I do find the compression lock works more smoothly if my finger is all the way forward.

And this IS a clone of a Strider original?
Looks fairly generic to me and definitely not a clone of anything Strider.

Haven't ever seen a Spydie at REI.
That's interesting; no Spydies online at REI, either. I bought my first two Spyderco knives at REI, long ago.

Re: a safety reminder...

Glad your son is okay.

When my son was little, I switched my around the house carry (back) to slipjoints with stiff backsprings. Not really a painful decision since I own some nice custom ones, but I felt a lot better knowing there was absolutely no way he could open them and hurt himself.

Re: Are there any serrated Snap-it Salt users out there ?

I like the idea but I hate the clip being up at the pivot. I understand it's safer than tip up where gravity might open the blade . . . From Spydiewiki: "The prototype originally had the snap on the back end, opposite the pivot, but was switched when it was discovered that this forced the user to r...

Re: Any dog lovers?

A couple of lab/hound mix (rescues, so that's all we know) "puppies." They're a year and a half old. Wouldn't guess it looking at them, but they're litter mates.

Another "yes" on the SE Endela. The SE Jazzelica is another good choice for turning boxes into small pieces of cardboard.

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.

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, ...
