BBS Delica M390

The Bento Box Shop Dark Blue M390 Delica.
Is it made in Japan, like the other Delicas?
If you have one, how do you like it? Does it perform like your other M390 knives?

Re: Brouwer Clip Placement - 2020 Catalog

The clip movement is an improvement, but the MXG short clip is better. The standard clip is still too long.

Re: ZDP-189 - Overrated or Super Steel?

After reading this I'm kinda surprised that ZDP-189 was sold as stainless. My ZDP Dragonfly was one of the first Spyderco's I bought. And when researching them. I saw a lot of threads saying how you had to really take care of it to stop it corroding. In fact when I bought mine it had a thin coating...

Re: Small Mod on the Brouwer

I noticed the detent ball is black on the Brouwer, others seem to be shiny as in stainless steel. I know the CRK knives are ceramic.
Could this detent be ceramic? Has anyone covered this?

Re: Caly 3/3.5 interest Poll

I am interested in the 3" more, but what the heck.
If I may just ask, please lighten up on the back end, it's overly heavy back there.

Re: Small Mod on the Brouwer

Thanks.
I have a Micro Mill and fitted a very small chuck too it, holding double Dremel disks.
I would not attempt doing this free hand. :) Not with my hands anyway.

Small Mod on the Brouwer

I must say I like this knife much more than I thought I would. It handles so well, it looks so good. After swapping clips (MXG) there was little else to do for it. There is too little jimping on the spine for me. When I choke up on the choil my thumb rests on bear steel. Here is what I did. https://...

Re: Anyone fitted a Flytanium Brouwer scale or deep carry clip?

Good, Flytanium excludes the steel liner, good move.
I still like the texture of G10 and BRG is still one of my fav. Note my brother had an Austin Healy Sprite back in the day and I learned to drive on it.

Re: Anyone fitted a Flytanium Brouwer scale or deep carry clip?

The Ti. non lock side scale looks great, but doesn't it add weight. I like my Brouwer because it is light.
Also, I like the MXG short clip with the hole, because I can grab the hole as I pull the knife out of my pocket.( easy Retreveal )

Carbon Fiber?

Re: Early days thoughts on the Brouwer

:) Lightweight is good, but this knife is quite lightweight on it's own. What else do I like about this knife, it's not back end heavy.
Stainless steel knives tend to be a bit heavy.

Re: Early days thoughts on the Brouwer

Just got one. Despite having too many S30V knives and not fond of sharpening S30V, bought one anyway . This knife was just too cute to pass up. The finish on the titanium is great, looks stonewashed but is near smooth. There no flaws in this knife. Really like the blade shape and the closed position...
