Re: Knife & Watch

Gold is not my thing. Even my wedding band is white gold... hmm where is that thing...

This was a gift from the parents. They are coming over for a visit, so figured I'd wear it. Only if it was some other color combination...

Re: What Spyderco is in your pocket today??

Had a beer with a bud who inherited one of my PM2s.

Re: CS Orange Zome Hap40 Endura

Although I originally I bought it for the steel, I ended up linking it. But then then gray VG-10 fell into my lap. Next thing you know, my brother is using an orange Zome V-10 in UK. Me, gray HAP40,

Re: 2020 Spyderco Forum Calendar Contest!

Native 5 is one of my top favorites. It comes in various steel options and handle materials. The latest linerless G10 models (pictured) is a home run. Needles to say, I have more than one Native 5s in my collection.

Re: Knife myths you should not accept as true a priori (meant to be a POSITIVE thread!)

In the spirit of keeping this positive, I will say that I have knives with various locks and don't dislike any of them because of the lock. Liner locks and compression locks try to commit a murder in your pocket every time you carry them - there is less than a handful of users here I can think of th...

Re: Do you immediately sharpen a new Spyderco?

Of my couple dozen new :spyder: , only one came in pretty dull. But otherwise no, I don't sharpen them.

Some I put through hard cutting on day one in order to test the ergonomics and edge retention. If that is the case, then yes, they get sharpened, or at least touched up the same day.

Re: What angle do you sharpen at?

Like SG, 'trying' to match the factory edge. Unless the knife is very dull or damaged, and I feel adventurous, I will take the angle down some. It is all free hand, so I have no idea what angle any of my edges end up at. If it is sharp, the actual angle is not important to me. I don't have anything ...

Re: Golden, CO made Wish List?

2/3 of my collection is Golden made. I would go for something brand new first; new design. Or a dramatically changed favorite, like PM2, Military, Native 5. Or wasn't there a talk of Caly coming to Golden? Para 3 is my most recent new Golden model. Of the three released since, the Shaman and Native ...

Re: Factory edge poll

Some are completely sharpened away, whether I reprofiled the knife, or just kept touching it up until they disappeared. Some have partial lines. The knives have been touched up between fine and ultra-fine :spyder: stones. I can see some lines and smooth spots along the entire edge. Handful of knives...

Re: Cruwear Military ETA

Happy for your excitement. I remember my first Military, and how it changed my perception of a larger folder. Although I have three at this point, I wouldn’t say no to a Cruwear. Maybe even put some Micarta on it, if it works out for the Shaman. Lack a full liners on the military would probably not ...

Re: Anyone else interested in a LW Native Chief?

I echo the request for rounded corners on the Golden made FRN LW knives. I rounded them myself on a LW Native. Big improvement in comfort, with no sacrifice in grip. Rounded inside and outside edges. The only other LW from Golden I have is the Manix, but I don't use it as much as the G10 model. So I...

Re: Are you a collector?

I think I have some 10 non-Spyderco knives, and little over 20 :spyder:. None of them are BNIB, maybe 3 could pass for like-new.

Once you go over a certain number of knives, you become a collector... maybe even a hoarder in a harmless way :)

Re: Your favorite/“the best” Paramilitary

Those who have seen my posts, know that this is my knife. Not the perfect knife for all tasks, but perfect for me. Every one is a favorite. There was only one PM2 I despised for few reasons, but that doesn't matter. I can arrange them in number of ways, but my two main categories are users and 'user...

I may have indicated earlier that I will be skipping this one. Apparently that wasn't me. Someone must have compromised my account :o
