INFI Steel which is what Busse uses. Been using this steel for a long time and it gets very sharp and is very tough. I woul...

Re: Province edge angle

Thanks for the replies! Then I just keep it between 18 and 20. Att Archimedes: as I understand convex is a little bit stronger than v edge and then I can go lower in angle?! In my case I have a work sharp and stones. Both creates convex so convex it is. Regards Kristian Interesting concept. Sharpen...

Re: Is this a fake?

No worries everybody. I also feel that way about fakes. Really, if I had known 100% that the knife I bought was a fake, I would never have purchased it. I gambled and lost. All of you have taught me a lot and maybe it will help me to keep from making the same mistake twice. A life long learner. Imp...

Let us know what you think. :)

Cant wait to play with this one. I will probably pick up a thermoplastic sheath for it.

This beauty is literally razor sharp from the factory. The final product turned out extremely top tier.

You must be happy.

Spyderco Province FB45GP

This knife hits all the right buttons for me. It falls in line with what I feel a fixed blade you are going to use should feel like. Excellent balance. Handle feels great. This knife just screams use me and I will. It is a big knife. I am excited. Cant wait to check out the steel. I will check back ...

Re: Just ordered some Nano Oil *cough snake oil cough*

Make your own oil.

Half motor oil, half ATF.

1/3 Motor oil, 1/3 ATF, 1/3 Marvels Mystery oil.

Go crazy and use synthetic for your blends.

Save thousands on oil....LOL

Re: The Never Ending Appeal Of The Old School Spyders

I love my old Spyders. I have a few classics around that I would keep forever.

I also love the new stuff. Like SurfGringo said Spyderco has been hitting them out of the park lately.

Re: How often do your preferences change?

I like to try out new folders. Yet, the Paramilitary seems to always end up back in my pocket. I also tend to carry the Pacific salt a lot. Those 2 folders seem to be my most carried for years now. I gave my Pacific salt to my son last summer when he was working for a rafting company, so really most...

Re: Some issues with my new Yojimbo 2 sprints

I love the slick handle of the 20CV version. It keeps my pockets from getting ruined. I have to say it is one of the finest production knives I have ever owned. Just a slick piece of hardware!

Re: Vintage Military

My 2 screw landed this morning. A couple of hours of cleaning and getting the corrosion off and she came out very good. I completely disassembled the knife. I had to use naval jelly to get some rust off. I think the knife was just neglected as it appears to have the factory edge and it is razor shar...

Re: Vintage Military

I am always on the look out for old Military's. This is one model that has really stood the test of time. I have been on the look out for a 2 screw clip model for literally years and always seem to miss them. I am always a day late and a dollar short. Until this week, when I found a used one for pre...
