Re: 16th century "Delica" - and YOUR traditional knifes?

Sweden doesn't really have a distinct traditional folding knife pattern as far as I am aware but we do have distinct Scandinavian fixed blade patterns that I'm sure you would all recognize. This is a classic Mora which has been produced in the same village for 125 years: https://i.imgur.com/gAcW38Z....

Re: Spyderco serration history

1) Purchase a serrated Spyderco. I would suggest a Delica or Endela full flat serrated. 2) Purchase a full Sharpmaker set, watch the video and use the Sharpmaker as I show on the video. Just using the stones without the system has some issues. Using just the small triangles that Halfneck was referr...

Re: Spyderco serration history

I think a lot of us originally stayed away from, or were turned off of serrations because we didn’t know how EASY they are to sharpen with Sal’s tools and teaching. Also, when they’re sharp, they cut well, with less, or no snagging. I know I did a complete 180° turn with them. I’ve tested on variou...

Re: Serration Disappointment

Really?? This is surprising to read. You had to have known this is how the knife was ground? Personally I find pull cuts best with SE blades. Did you try touching it up, maybe a small burr or wire edge on the scallop's? I knew it was how they were ground, I just wasn't thinking about it when I orde...

Re: The best pocket knife ever

If you made me keep only one knife it would be my S90V bright orange Native from the Cutlery Shoppe. It's what I choose when I don't know what to choose.

Re: Why the byrd Harrier 2 Ltwt is a game changer

I agree with you on 8cr, it isn't as bad as reviewers make it out to be. If it dulls you can more or less strop it back on your belt and you are fine. Sharpens really easy and there is a lot to be said for that. I like steels that I can strop back! I have never gotten annoyed by my vg10 knives apart...

Re: Back locks with edges going all the way to the handle

It's an interesting question. I have thought about this as well. Above the size of a Native I personally don't need a forward finger choil but would like more edge. I know the reason for having a picasso is to avoid slicing your fingers but if more edge could be gotten of out of say an Endela I thin...

Re: Zeroed In: Sal Glesser

Hey Sal, I've come to realise something over the last years. When thinking about people who inspire me I have to say you are one of few that comes to mind. How morally you run your business (emerson opener, aftermarket clip manufacturers), your design approach, how you seem to treat your employees, ...

Re: Cutlery Shoppe rex45 two-tone para3

I have several orange knives with olive green paracord on them, this is right up my alley! I wont buy because I don't need a new knife right now though. Shipping and taxes to Europe are no fun as well.

Re: Will Spyderco Ever Endeavor In New Serration Patterns?

I hope Spyderco experiments and does cqi tests in house to see if they can push aberrations further
That being said, I need nothing more than the edge on my Endela. Fairly shallow serrations on a thin ffg blade. Awesome cutting power!

Re: What's your favorite thing & slices Spydie?

Of all my Spydercos, nothing beats the Gayle Bradley 2.

3 mm blade stock and a good hollowgrind beats even a few thinner FFG blades.... The hollowgrind probably makes for a very low friction against cardboard.

Just got my first Ladybug in the mail this afternoon!

Hi!

I'm curious as to how the Endela compares to a Carribean. Does anybody have the possibility of taking a comparison picture of them?

Re: H1 serration testing, has anyone tested theirs?

Hi Knife_Bro, for me, on the serrated edge, I've been using 3 strokes on the ground side and one stroke on the back side. I spend a fair amount of time in Hawaii and I only use Salts when I'm there. On the plain edge, I just sharpen as normal. I like the edge H1 takes on the plain edge. It just doe...
