Re: Native Chief - Can we get a heartbeat?

Not a fan of liner-less construction especially on larger blades. There is enough play in the smaller ones I have. Hope this is not a trend to get prices down. I would rather pay a bit more for more solid durable quality. My linerless manix 2 is solid as the day I bought it with no play. I expect t...

Jokes aside wear resistance and toughness below are from manufacturer data, typical HRC is from me, compiling Ankerson Spyderco data or similar.

Re: Fixed Blade Friday!

I'd like to carry a fixed blade now and then. However I wear a uniform at work so after hours is gym shorts or sweats. No belt.

Re: What slices better wharnecliffe delica or centofante 3

I am certainly lost. I only have SB Delica and Hap40 Wharnie Delica.
