Re: You're So Jaded...

I'm in the same boat Spydergirl88. My 'chase' slowed when I finally found the one. It was the S90V Ti/CF Military. It has been in my pocket almost everyday since. I still like my other Spydies and occasionally carry them, but the search has slowed. If you have not found your ONE yet, don't give up t...

Re: Bar B Q: Who's Got The Best?? And Don't Forget The Sauce

Really? This an actual question being asked? As a BBQ Champion.... What would be a good smoker? I want to replace my offset smoker this year with something that requires less attention. I currently need to fiddle with the opening on the vent stack or the inlet vent on the charcoal to set my tempera...

Re: Bar B Q: Who's Got The Best?? And Don't Forget The Sauce

I like to use different BBQ sauces depending on the meat. But by far my favorite is the KC Style BBQ sauce. It is good almost everywhere. A close second would be Carolina BBQ Sauce, mainly because it goes so well on pulled pork. It really lets the meat and the smoking process performed by the cook ...

Re: Bar B Q: Who's Got The Best?? And Don't Forget The Sauce

The only things I used are woodsmoke, a light rub and in the case of pork I use a variation of the true Eastern NC vinegar sauce used sparingly to cut the sweetness/richness of the meat....it is also used as a mop sauce to crisp up the skin during whole hog cooks. I couldn't agree more. This sauce ...

Re: NCAAM Basketball

My bracket lost 2 of my Final Four picks over the weekend. But I still have my final two teams left Mich St and Virginia. As usual, the talking heads on TV hyped the ACC and gave them 3 number 1 seeds. And as usual other leagues can play basketball just as well. I thought all of the games over the w...

Re: The Drunken: Amazing Knife, Ruined by its Pocket Clip.

I got rid of my Janisong for this very same reason. The pocket clip would not fit jeans.

Re: Pm2 vs Manix 2

I own multiples of each knife. I probably own more PM2s, but they are both great. If I had to choose just one it would be the MANIX 2. That knife is a tank. The ergonomics are better and it can do it all.

Clear Knife Scales

I saw this Manix 2 on social media yesterday. What do think of the clear scales?

Re: BHQ Military CPM M4 DLC Exclusive

I have the Ti/CF S90V Military. It is my daily driver. I prefer the R.I.L. on the Ti compared to the liner lock of this model. Plus S90V is hands down my favorite steel. Yep I got one for Christmas, God I love my Girlfriend! THen loved it so much I bought a back up right before they sold out the TI...

I am submitting a request to have an option in the Collectors Club for individual models only (not every knife made). I would be down for that! ;)

Re: Spyderco Customizer: A future possibility or a forever dream?

This will only become reality when a downturn in the ebbs and flows of knife sales are felt by Spyderco. The brand is popular now so I would not expect to see it anytime soon. However like all industries there will come a time when the Spyderco Customizer will be created to generate more knife sales...

Re: Red G10 20CV Manix 2 - DLT EXCLUSIVE

Well that was fast! I tried to get one on my lunch hour and they were already sold out. If you bought two, send me a PM. I'll take one off your hands.
