Re: Wal Mart Ammo

Underwood and Buffalo Bore. It's expensive stuff but it is high quality and high performing stuff. Yeah, quite expensive. But, Underwood had a 15% off sale during Black Friday. I believe that's the most they've ever discounted their ammo. Btw, I love their Extreme Defender Series from Lehigh. Left ...

Re: Which steel has impressed you lately?

K390.
It has better edge stability than I expected for a steel of its type. So far so good scraping abrasive material and banging the edge against other metals.
Haven’t tested its shock resistance yet by hammering the spine, but that time will come.

Re: Sage 5 Lightweight

Sal can we expect some sprint run/exclusive runs of the Sage 5 LW in different colors/steels? Thx. A Sage 5 LW in K390 would be pretty cool. Anything is possible. I'm carrying one today. I wouldn't mind one in K390. sal This would be great since the sage and k390 are both favorites of mine.

Re: Looking for anyone in the US who isn't getting a BladeHQ Dodo

Wouldn't it be simpler to just get a credit card? i haven’t had a credit card in 25 years, just a bank card. Even though they aren’t the same, they work the same when making a purchase. Doesn’t PayPal have to have a credit card or bank account attached to it? I am also from Europe and also don´t ha...

Re: Sage 5 Lightweight

I thought the whole point of the Sage series was to show off different lock designs. So IMHO instead of a LW version Spyderco should have came out with another lock. I think you're right, but... Doing an existing model in a different handle material kind of breaks the ice, maybe we'll see some in d...

Re: Lost knife

I can't remember the last knife I permanently lost, it's been so long, probably an old timer stockman or case canoe.
If it's easily replaceable, no big deal to me... disturbing if not.

Re: Are We Intended To Be "Herd Animals"?

The way I understand black friday, it's the one day of the year that retailers were almost guaranteed of being in the black in sales, instead of red. Somewhere along the line, retailers started noticing the day after thanksgiving was one of the highest sales day of the year. Why this is, who knows, ...

BBS just seems like a small grocery store with high prices. There's never more than 2 cars in the parking lot (as opposed to Walmart being absolutely packed), and some people like that.
And they carry wagyu/kobe beef instead of choice.

Re: Community Sharpening Journal

Reporting on my S30V PM2, I've been experimenting with, I'm very pleased to say that the edge seems to be stabilising, and holding a keen razor sharp apex without microchipping. As Jpm2 mentioned with his Sage, it took quite a bit of aggressive resharpening to remove the brittle steel and get down ...

Re: Dragonfly 2 vs Urban

One question for the recent owners of Urban: does the blade have a half stop (like Pingo)? I remember some videos I was watching previously mentioning that the mid stop is at 90% closed, some at 50% closed. I can only assume that the mid stop position was changed from 90 to 50% in later production....

My m4 blades are noticeably better at fine edge holding than my hap40 blades.
