Re: Native 5 Lightweight Rex 45

Sitting around at KnifeCenter and DLT for such long periods of time, annoyed with myself for panic buying from St Nick's and not earning rewards points from either of the other places :mad: Arg, tell me about it. My friend is big Texas Longhorns fan. I almost bought another one for him from KC or D...

Re: Changing size comfort zone...

I am a much in the "a big knife can do everything a small knife can, but a small knife can´t do everything a big knife can" - camp. The one thing a big knife can't do that a small knife can is be small. :) I get what you're saying about a big knife being able to do all the cutting chores but there ...

Re: Native 5 Liners/Washers?

Aside from the Native 5 LW models (which I like) the only linerless models I have are the 40th Anniversary & Fluted Titanium. The action on those are as good as any linered models I've had

Re: REX45 Para 3 Lightweight

Those that also have this model in G10 - which handle material do you prefer vs the LW? There are things I like about both. You might find the clip on the G10 a little awkward but, if you're willing to add one the after market clips, I think the G10 is a little nicer knife overall (better action et...

Re: How Durable?

What is the proper plural of the manix? Manixes? Manixi? Would a group of Manixi be a herd, gaggle, murder, or a mess? Inquiring minds :p If you want me to get all nerdy on you...the correct way to pluralize English words ending in x is to add -es. So Manix would be Manixes. The exceptions to that ...

Re: Best Edge Performance Steel between these choices?

Never say never, but I don’t think I’ll ever buy Maxamet. Too little reward for the effort.... It's expensive but you really should try it if you get the opportunity. I haven't been very impressed by S110V but Maxamet is a different story. I was fortunate that one of the members here picked me up a...

Re: Spyderco Smock:Technical Showcase, Dud Knife

Did you try that grip I posted in the photo? For me, using it feels quite natural when holding this knife that way. Except for whittling on a piece of hardwood I haven't used mine much yet but this is how I've been holding it. It actually feels fine. It's not the most ergonomic model I have but it'...

Hmmm...I tried it and I can't. Even if I hold it so my finger's right on the button I can't push the button in far enough to even come close to unlocking. Likely a difference in hand size I guess

Re: More 4V Coming....

Given how popular their runs have been, and how other exclusives have been ramped up in terms of numbers, it seems odd to me that they would run <500 of them. I mean, I would bet pretty much anything that if were say 1,200 of them, they'd still sell out that day, if not <1hr... am I off base on thi...

SNK Manix 2 4V Coming....

A little bird told me that there'll be another model released with 4V in a couple weeks and it's not a PM2.

Stay tuned....

Re: Spyderco Smock:Technical Showcase, Dud Knife

I cringed a little when I saw that you (Michael) ordered a Smock. I was pretty sure it wouldn't be something you'd like. I received my Smock the other day and I actually like it much more that I thought I would. Is it a knife I'd grab for a sustained cutting job? No it's not. But I don't think there...

Re: Sage 5 stops

I'm not sure what you're talking about. I am looking at my Sage 5 and it looks pretty normal as far as compression locks go. Is it really the Sage 5? It has an internal stop pin too. Several models use it. I'd have to look but I'm pretty sure the Sliverax uses one. I think the Hanan and Kapara do t...
