Re: To those of you who beat the snot out of your salt knives: how’s your action?

Down here the soil is mostly sand, so my Salts always end up with sand in the action. The action suffers from that, of course, but rinsing usually clears it. Sometimes it lingers and I just have to wait for it to work its way out. Lots of pictures of shiny & clean Salts, not really sure they are hav...

Re: How about Ed Calderone collaboration?

Looks like Mr Calderone has few colabs with other makers already.

Fine, it has become the "someone is wrong on the internet!" thread. Similar idea, just not with an age bias.

Re: C-60 Ayoob Campaign: No I Won't Shut Up

I live in Florida, but not right on the coast. None of my knives in any steel accept for M4 has experienced any corrosion in the often brutal humidity here. VG-10, while not being a favorite of mine, has served well with no corrosion issues. I cannot think of a better Japanese all-around steel over ...

Re: Research ENDURA Gen3

I too prefer the Generation 3 Endura and Delica to the Generation 4 versions. It will be very difficult to find a Generation 3 in unused condition as they have been out of production for years now. However, many of the auctions sites have lightly used ones for sale often. The previous version of the...

Re: Salt knives pivot lube ?

Like many, I never use lubricant on my Salt knives. They get rinsed under the faucet or in the pool then left to dry.

Re: Mirror polished edges - Which steels are better (and worst) for taking them?

Being lazy by nature (also my '90's hip hop name) I found the same thing, that a course edge works best for me, on my knives. I never go beyond the grey stones on the Sharpmaker. I do like the look of mirror edges, but only when others do the work. :D

You may want to check out Zerust VCI products. They have broad range of corrosion inhibitors and can easily be found at Amazon or other retailers.

Re: Mandatory Spyderedges: Who Else Agrees?

No worries.

When my Mother in Law was recovering from a surgery, she was on some strong stuff. You should have seen the huge pile of stuff she ordered from QVC and had no recollection of ordering. Thankfully, they took it all back.

Feel better soon!

Re: Spyderco Army Knife

The ClipiTool series is Spyderco's answer to the question. Sal already stated in this ancient thread that Spyderco is not going to copy anyone, so no "me too" products.

Re: Mandatory Spyderedges: Who Else Agrees?

Mandatory Spyderedges? That's a hard NO from me. While I believe some models would have been best in a Spyderedge only, I'll leave the business decisions to the those who have built a very successful business.
