Re: How much sharpening gear do YOU own???

Here's my sharpener of choice. It has pretty much everything I need to get a good edge on all of my knives.

Re: Spyderco Manix 2, awesome EDC.

I love the way the Dark Blue Light Weight carries in my pocket. Sure, the G-10 has a nice heft to it but the gimping on the blade side of the liners is a real hot spot for my hand, no such hot spot with the FRCP handle model. I may try to file down the gimping on that side of the liners and then pol...

Re: Manix 2 G10 CQI?

I just got one of the Manix 2 G-10 versions with S30V steel a few days ago on our 3point5 program and it still has the solid liners. I think only the Sprint Runs will have the skeletonized liners for now but who knows, if enough of us say something maybe Spyderco will give all the Manix 2's skeleton...

Re: Sunday Poll - Should S30V be phased out?

Nope, S30V offers a nice upgrade to 8Cr13Mov for those looking for a better blade without a lot of added expense of some of the more "High End" steels. Yes, there are probably better steels available like S110V but for EDC how much better do you need and really, for most of us 8Cr13MoV is perfectly ...

Re: Tip up or tip down. Which do you perfer?

That was kind of the point of my video, that there's no right or wrong way and that a lot depends on where you're carrying and how large the knife is. Also, I'm not going to take everything out of the pockets of my pants/shorts when I take them off. I drop em' by my bedside with my Glock 42 and a sp...

Re: Manix 2 or the para 2? Which is your favorite?

I gave the Para 2 and the Manix2 both a close look at work(Cabela's) and ended up going with the Manix2 because I liked the lock and blade shape better. I have the G-10 now and I'm getting the light weight s110v dark blue model on Monday and I plan on doing a review of both on my YouTube channel.

Re: Tip up or tip down. Which do you perfer?

I had a Cold Steel Scimitar that was partially open and in my right front pocket cut a 3" long, 1/2" deep gash in my lower leg when I pulled on my jean shorts after I got out of the shower and that was tip up so even with a good back locking system can still have the blade come open and you'll get c...

Spyderco, the Glock of the knife world?

Been thinking about this for a few days and it seems to me that Spyderco knifes are kind of the Glock of the knife world. Let me explain why I think this. Many people say that Glock handguns are ugly(I think they look nice and I like them, heck, I own 5 of em') but they are as close to 100% reliable...

Re: Which spyderco is in the mail?

My Manix 2 G-10 should be coming in via UPS today at Cabela's where I work. I ordered it on our 3point5 program so I got a pretty good price on it. I also have a Manix 2 s110v light weight, dark blue on order, should be here on Monday. Life is good.

Re: Just ordered a Manix 2 G-10.

I really love it, I was using it at work(Cabela's here in Glendale, AZ.) for a few months to sharpen customer's knives so I finally broke down and picked one up for home use. I love it because you get a course and fine diamond stone, a course, fine and fish hook ceramic and a small ceramic for serra...

Re: Just ordered a Manix 2 G-10.

My sharpening system of choice is the Work Sharp Field Sharpener. I've been using it at work for the last few months and loved it so much that I picked one up for home use. Here's my YouTube vid on it.

Just ordered a Manix 2 G-10.

Been going round and round on this, wanted a ParaMilitary 2 then thought about the Manix 2 LW but wasn't sure about the CTS-BD1 steel. I like my Tenacious and picked up a Resilience but wanted a slightly higher end Spyderco so I ended up going with the G-10 version of the Manix 2 because of the S30V...
