Re: Steel that takes the keenest (sharpest) edge?

My V-Toku2 Endura. For some reason I can get that edge insanely sharp.

Re: Salt knives pivot lube ?

Thanks for all the feedback. Much appreciated. I Only use a little lube if the knife was disassembled and I'm putting it back together again. Maybe once a week or when ever it's needed I'll put a small drop lube on the tang where it operates against the lock bar. This has always worked fine for me a...

Re: Who edc's their Endura?

Lucky for me I live in South Africa and we have zero knife laws, you can carry a machete if you want to :D Endura is one of my favorite EDC knives. I Have the V-Toku sprint and it sees plenty of pocket time. I Ordered a Pacific Salt 2 witch should arrive in a couple of days. I'm pretty excited to ge...

Re: Pm2 S110V

I Bought mine in 2016. I Used it every now and then for the first two years but for the last two years it's been my EDC at least five days of the week. You can take Jim's advice, I agree with everything he said. I Sharpen mine with a Lansky using the 17 degree setting and only go up to the medium st...

Re: The Last Gun You Bought

I Bought a Beretta 1301 COMP. Licence applications in South Africa is a real PITA and I waited five months for it get approved. I Received it two days before our lock down started so it hasn't even fired a shot yet. Hopefully in two weeks time I can get it to the range.

I can't compare it to 8cr but it is less than VG-10. Still, I love PE H1. Take a look at this: https://forum.spyderco.com/viewtopic.php?t=83361
Thanks, that is very informative.

H1 PE question

Hey everybody.
Sorry if this has been asked or discussed before.
H1 in plain edge, to what other steel is it's edge retension comparable to ?
General light everyday use, no heavy cutting tasks. VG-10 or 8CR13MOV maybe or not ?

Re: New PM2 Owner & New to Forums

Hi. Welcome to the Spyderco Forums. In witch country do you stay ? I Own a couple of Spyderco's and the PM2 is my favorite by far. So much that I own three variants of it (S30V, S110V and Cru-Wear).

Re: Self defense with new releases

Sorry for the hijack but how effective will a Delica 4 Wharncliffe be for self defence application ? It does resemble the Yo2 somewhat ?

Re: Help me decide.....Delica 4 SE or Salt 2 SE ?

Unless you need the corrosion resistance you may not notice the difference between edge retention. The biggest difference can be found in blade grind, if you can find a Delica in FFG/SE it will slice far better than the Salt. The current Delica wharnie is offered in FFG/SE. Delica with FFG/SE will ...

Re: Help me decide.....Delica 4 SE or Salt 2 SE ?

That's an interesting question. You will hear that H-1 is amazing in SE. I have no H-1 experience but I feel like if it were superior to VG-10 they would be rolling it out in non-Salt knives. I like the Salt 2 aesthetically. Probably a better choice than either would be a Native 5 FRN SE. FFG is a ...

Help me decide.....Delica 4 SE or Salt 2 SE ?

Hi everybody. I Want to buy one of these knives. The small weight difference is not an issue. Being rust proof will be a bonus but is not a necessity. So basically it comes down to what steel choice in SE will be the better option to maintain it's sharpness and use as a EDC knive. Cutting chores wil...
