Re: Compendium of tips for sharpening serrated knives

I'm gonna shoot a new SE sharpening video soon. If there's something in particular you want included let me know. First of all, where does one find your videos? What I think would be good to show but not necessarily fit in a sharpening video would be how to best cut with a serrated knife. I find th...

Re: Your Thoughts of an Ideal Companion Blade?

As for now I'm using a rotation of plain edge knives as a primary knife in my right front pocket, in my right rear pocket I keep a Byrd Hawkbill. That is sort of like opposite knives. Then I always have a Sak in a sheath on my belt, it is super friendly where it might not be ok with a larger knife....

Re: The hawkbill learning experience

I use a Byrd Hawkbill as a secondary knife and since reading this and other threads about serrations I have tried using it as primarily as possible and I have to say that it is absolutely possible to do most tasks. You have to weight what is possible against what you perceive as most pleasurable and...

Re: Is there a BYRD in your pocket??

In my back pocket there's a Byrd Hawkbill transplanted into a g10 handle from a Meadowlark. Great secondary knife to compliment a plain edge blade in my front pocket. I like the byrd serrations!

Re: Your toughest Spyderco Folder

I can't say that I ever used a knife to the point of failure except for the one time I batoned a PM2. Dumb idea... It feels kinda hard to say whether a knife is tough or not! To me that would be more if a knife FELT tough. Well a Native LW feels tough, really solid lockup and stout feeling in the ha...

Re: what spyderco knife is this?

Spyderco really makes wonderfully weird knives. Not all appeal to me so that I would be one but I love looking at them. Not a dull moment when browsing a spyderco catalogue!

Re: How often do you sharpen your babys

I strop almost daily. As soon as they start hanging up, snagging or generally don't slice anymore they will get a proper sharpening. And by then I'll often rotate to another freshly sharp knife. I don't have time sharpen as often as one single knife would need so therefore owning more than one knife...

Re: What would you like to see next from Byrd?

My vote would be for a wharncliffe Meadowlark 2. With khaki FRN just like the Kahr Arms Delica...my dream Byrd. Decided to photoshop this one up... https://i.imgur.com/1w9E5JO.jpg Wow this is nice. Byrd knives have their unique place as the potential gateway Spyderco knife. I've never wanted to spe...

Re: I have to be honest, flipper detents need to be stronger.

Did you simply drill the detent hole out slightly deeper? Or increase the spring strength of the liner? spring strength may play a role, but that adds to the friction when opening and closing. What we've noticed on the taichung models is that the detent hole in the blade is smaller than the detent ...

Wharncliffe Para Military 2?

I am totally hooked on spydercos wharncliffe blades and since we've seen a tanto pm2 in the shadows, maybe a wharncliffe one isn't totally umrealistic?

Re: ready for a new native

I enjoy use a "hammer" grip with my native for heavy cuts and my experience with doing that with a compression lock is not so great. Try doing som heavy push cutting with a pm2 and the compression locks quickly starts digging in... It would be cool with an axis style lock but there is probably not e...
