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...

Re: Respect Bowie short feedback

Back to the original thread...

I got my Respect today and what a fantastic piece. It just checks all the right boxes. The size is perfect. It feels perfect in the hand.

Amazing craftsmanship!

Sheath is a perfect match.

All in all this blade gets a 10 out of 10 on my BladeOmeter!

Re: You're So Jaded...

I know the feeling. In 2005 when I first started hitting the knife forums I was out of control in a good way. It was fun. I am still a knife guy and still enjoy a good thread, but mostly I feel like I have been there done that. So many threads are the same. I think I have seen the same thread only s...

Re: What Could Profoundly Improve The 204 Sharpmaker?

I think the Sharpmaker is perfect because of its simplicity.

The idea of making it adjustable angle is intriguing, but I think that should be a different model and keep the sharp maker the way it is.

I also would like a coarser stone.

Re: Respect Bowie short feedback

I picked one up and it should be here this week.

This knife really spoke to me. Just the old school aesthetic. Once I saw the sheath, I was so sold. Love the tuck in the waistband sheath. Plus I am a fixed blade Junkie. I consider fixed blades real knives and folders not so much.

Re: Throwback Thursday for Spyderco's

This was one of the wildest knives I had ever seen when it came out. I have not had it out in years.

So I am starting a day early!

Re: Different Tools, Different Steels, Different Angles Different Grits to get your Spydies Blade Factory Fresh

My 3 main tools are a Ken Onion Worksharp, a Sharpmaker. and a Strop. I have some other tools in a box, like bench stones and a full Edge Pro system and miscellaneous stones. I don't really use the Edge Pro anymore but keep it anyway. The Workshop comes with a v angle attachment but I never liked th...

Re: C22 Walker/Klotzli Genome Project

I would prefer a stainless steel. I am pretty much done buying any steel that rusts or Patinas on a folder.

I am not sure if this ones been discontinued, but I have owned it for what seems like forever. Carried a bit, but not used a lot. I always liked the look of it.

Re: Throwback Thursday for Spyderco's

Just a thought on Throwback Thursday the knife does not have to be that old maybe just a knife you forgot about that has been laying around or bought and never really carried. For me it has been rediscovering old knives I stopped carrying or steel I have not used for years.
