Re: Changing size comfort zone...

The Military is the ultimate carry for me. It carries slim and is extremely lightweight for the size of knife. I got into 3" and smaller blades for a while but I found myself not really using or carrying them as much as larger folders. I just don't find them as useful, they are still taking up pock...

Re: Civilian/Matriarch

This thread has me wishing that I had not sold my Civilian. It has to be one of the most fearsome knives that I have ever held. To me, it's brilliant in its designed intent as self defense for someone like myself who has zero training in any kind of knife fighting. Unless you have some seriously wil...

Re: manix 2 with dlc

IIRC the LW Cutlery Shoppe exclusive with DLC S90V is still set to drop. I would love to have one but I am getting pretty tired of orange knife scales in any shade.

Re: K390 Heritage ETA?

I can't wait for a Stretch in this. It's one of my favorite Spydies made and it is perfect for a good K390 treatment.

Re: K390 ladybug alert thread

Perfect timing for everyone hanging out in sweats wanting a knife to open snacks with. I will bet that this knife is a pocket mini-razor.

Re: Crunch-Time Hardware? Spyders For Trying Times?

I have used my folders in the kitchen a lot more than I normally would just for the fun of it. I killed a few nonthreatening limbs and sticks in my backyard through death by slow whittling but that's about it.

Re: Sun/Moon Chappy

Sal had mentioned this may be available in the first quarter of this year. Since it hasn't appeared it makes me wonder if we will see it anytime soon. All of the COVID emergency restrictions are bound to be wreaking havoc on their supply line from Taichung and Seki.

Re: Knifeworks Exclusive Para 3, CTS-204P/Forrest Green G10

I would vote for a Manix as well. This combo definitely deserves a run.

It's either an April Fool's joke or they sold out of pre-orders over night. Maybe?

I am kind of surprised that they are still available given all of the REX45 mania.
