Re: Talking about your traditional knives

Buying and selling not allowed. No intention of generating a sale. I'm looking for model numbers of GECs (or another brand) with a primary blade sheeps foot. I do have this Schrade Old Timer 3 blade traditional with a prominent sheeps foot. It's my user and my Dad gave it to me. NORPAC is North Pac...

Re: Military with Compression Lock?

Spyderco makes good knives, no doubt. As a company they do a lot for the community, charities, military and first responders but their knives are not the end-all and be-all of knives. I enjoy a few of the threads here but Bloke is right, too much idol worship, too many times getting flamed for an op...

Re: What "Other" is in your pocket???

I look at all the knives I never carry and think of...

Re: Philosophy of locks

Also, I have to agree with Doc Dan, I am sure that the reason folder locks were developed initially was to provide increased safety for those who needed it, or felt that they did. Lock design should strive to be reliable — always working as designed — fail-safe even under the “stupid user” rule, and...

So are you using a Spyderco slipit? No more locking spydies?
I have a Chaparral FRN. My few others are Great Eastern Cutlery or Case (and the jury is still out on the Case), and my old SAK Tinker I bought from the ship’s store in 1962, and my Buck 112 which I got sometime in the 1979s.

Re: Philosophy of locks

I think I have had every locking mechanism that Spyderco makes except for the ceramic ball bearing. Over the years I have shed all of my locking folders but one. It’s in a drawer somewhere. I have cut myself with fixed blades, locking folders and slip joints. It has never been because of the knife d...
