Re: Mule Team Survey

I'm so glad to see the Mule program returning. :) 1) Did you purchase a Mule Team knife in the past? Yes. Lots of them. 2) Did you put a handle on it? Yes. Almost all of them. Making handles for Mules was a big part of my first years learning to make knives. My first handle and first sheaths ever we...

Re: What makes me angry

Similarly to others here.. This week our market opened Tuesday and Thursday from 7AM - 9AM exclusively for people 60 and over. Both days they re-stocked shelves just prior to opening. It was very helpful for my in-laws. I hope the market near you does something similar Doc.

Re: Fairly comprehensive list of Spyderos in movies, tv shows, etc

Nathan Fillion, who is right handed, deploys what appears to be a hollow grind PE Endura with his left hand to perform some field surgery on a victim in The Rookie. I think it was S2-E11 February 23. I can't see your pics, but I was watching the same episode. When I saw the Endura I thought of this...

I love the G10 Stretch 2. It's a tough and reliable knife that has earned a spot in my "permanent" collection.

Re: Intro to tool steel?

There's soooo many good choices in tool steels. I suggest Cruwear would be an ideal first tool steel to try. It has the great tool steel edge characteristics one would want to experience and it is quite a bit more corrosion resistant than many of the other great options. Another good starting point ...

I thought autos under 2" were ok, there are blades called Cali legal autos
You might be right about that, I'm not 100% positive. I know that autos are banned but at the same time a "knife" is defined as being 3" or longer so maybe that's a loophole?

Re: LA knife laws

Welcome to the forum Z550. I live in So. Cal too. In LA you cannot carry knives or daggers in open view if the blade is over 3". Clipped in your pocket counts as "in open view". If your blade is 3" or less you're fine. There is no actual length limit on pocket knives in California as long as they ar...

Hi Grizz, I have to admit up front, I'm biased. That said, what you're looking for matches Lance's design intentions for the Siren really...

Re: Super Bowl...who will win?

Joe Montana was and still is my favorite quarterback of all time. Growing up, I was a 49'rs fan until they decided not to take Joe back when he was healthy again. At that point I became a Chief's fan and have been ever since. I'm loving that it's my "old" team against my current team! Go CHIEFS!

Re: Production LC200N

Yes I'd also like to see a comparison between SE H1 and SE LC200N. PE LC200N is not on the same level as S30V in my experience. I value Lance/Surfingringo's assessments and opinions, however I think fine edge dulling from being in a coastal environment my have been a factor in his rating of PE LC20...

Re: Hardness vs Toughness vs Strength

..Well, I would've assumed that, but while reading about it earlier, I found several metallurgy sites that defined hardness as "a material's ability to hold together when friction is applied." In other words, wear resistance. Edit: when I think of hardness in laymans terms, I think "how much pressu...

Vanax Mules have been produced for testing. I do not know how the price negotiations are going, but Sal has said that samples have been made and tested. Quote from the Vanax Mule thread...

If you weren't already thinking about it, I'd suggest a cheap toaster oven for heating your Kydex. I have an old cheap one mounted in my garage that I've been using exclusively for kydex for over 3 years now. :) Works great!

No just set it on a small stand and moved on to the next.

I'll try leather before long once I learn more and purchase the correct tools...
