Re: Someone is trolling you

Let’s also remember that Kristi has repeatedly said that she wants us to flag the posts we think are from trolls and to NOT continue to engage. If you’re concerned about people following the rules, well that one should be high on anyone’s rules to follow.

Re: Thinnest functional bladestock for a general use folder

Blade stock thinness is only 1/2 the story. It's the BTE tick/thinness that matters more. Hollow ground knives out perform FFG for this reason (IMHO). For me the Chaparral is a little disappointing even though it has 2mm blade stock. It needs to have more taper to the edge so it's thinner behind th...

If anything, he brought out some folks' true natures, and how quickly people will abandon "shiny footprints". Dude wasn't insulting, wasn't rude, was just a little annoying. All people had to do was put him on ignore or just not interact in his threads, but some folks just had to get thei...

Re: Thinnest functional bladestock for a general use folder

Dr. Larrin Thomas has hinted that MagnaCut’s formula can be adjusted to change the attributes, so perhaps we can convince him to make an adjustment specifically for thin blade stock? Otherwise, I’m always happy for more Cruwear. I think Niagara would need to roll it thinner than they do now so that ...

Re: Chris Reeve Knives

Wow I am in love! The action is way smoother on this large 31 than my small 31 I used to have. I really prefer the large to the small in size now that I've owned both. I wish they all had a hole and deep carry clip lol https://i.ibb.co/JcvTFx2/20220121-180315.jpg https://i.ibb.co/mRTdnjw/20220121-1...

Re: A few newbie questions

Of the 3 you mention, Shaman, Manix 2, or PM2, I would choose the Manix 2 over the other two. Of course, you are likely to end up the other two as well, especially if you follow SG89's advice! :-) There is something about the Manix 2 that works well for people who like the Native series of knives.

Re: Chris Reeve Knives

One thing I learned with my new-to-me 31 is that the large could actually be a bit larger, for me at least. I'm really glad I passed on the small version.

Re: cardboard cutting

Cutting cardboard with your pocketknife is a way of learning how your knife performs. It is not a negative thing. Otherwise, what else are you cutting with your pocket knife that couldn't be cut with some other thing? Open boxes = box cutter or back of a key Open mail = letter opener or a finger Rop...

I won't participate. I have seen this question pop up every year and everyone wanted a different version. It was a very difficult excercise to choose a forum knife in the past.

Re: A question for Sal regarding the Rockjumper

Hi Marius, Sorry to disappoint you. Eric and I discussed the modification last week and decided that the new tooling would be very expensive for the very small amount gained. Besides, sales on the Rock Jumper have not been stellar. The Leaf Jumper was just approved and we'll see if the Leaf version...
