Re: Police HAP40 and Pakkawood: KC Exclusive

For those of you who have this knife, I have a question for you. Do the scale screws screw into just the scales underneath? The reason I ask is I am thinking of getting the knife. My father is a skilled woodworker, and I would very much appreciate some scales from him. I just want to make sure that ...

Re: First high(ish) end knife purchase need advice.

I would suggest something in SPY-27. The general impressions on this forum is that is sharpens like VG-10 but holds an edge closer to S30V. The Para 3 LW in SPY-27 is not in stock in a lot of places. Rumor has it that a Native 5 LW in SPY-27 will make its way to retailers soon. There are a couple of...

Re: Rock Jumper comparison thread + general info

Oh man, this thread is really tempting me. I try not to buy knives because I don't use them all that often, so I don't like the idea of buying something that just sits around unused (I've got a couple in mind that are "must" buys). But the RJ is checking a lot of boxes for me. First of all, that han...

Re: Need advice! Freehand or Guided System

The accuracy and consistency of them. I don’t want to f up my newer knives because I suck af free hand. And also I like that you know what angle your sharpening at so it seems like it would be easier for re profiling knives for a beginner. I just bite the bullet and realize that asymmetrical bevels...

Re: SPY27 Native 5 Lightweight

I really interested in the steel. The Para3 isn't for me. Not sure if the Native is either. I've never held one, so I can't say for sure. There are certainly plenty of reasons to give it a shot. I've got an email alert set up with a retailer. Basically, I'm undecided but tempted.

Re: Need advice! Freehand or Guided System

I freehand (not the best, but getting better), so I say stick with freehand. What is drawing your interest to a fixed-angle system?

I’m holding out, perhaps unrealistically, for a dragonfly in this configuration.
I emailed to ask if they are expanding this configuration to other Seki models (would love a P4LW). I was told the owner holds these cards pretty close to his chest. Time will tell.

Not long-winded, I enjoyed reading it, and love your Military collection. I had one long ago, and found it too big at the time. I really don't think I would feel that way anymore at all. I should definitely try again someday.
After enjoying the P4LW, I am starting to feel the same thing.

Re: Kind of a Big Deal...!

Do you have to make such good points? Can't I just wait until the knife I want in the configuration that I want comes to market?

Kidding aside, you do make some good points. I wasn't even considering this knife. Not sure if I am now, but you did get me thinking.

Re: Sage Maxamet

I like the idea of "old" Sage models making a comeback. The gray G10 looks great. Maxamet isn't for me. I'm hoping more "old" Sage models make an appearance.

Re: Reveal 6 Live!

No not at all. I was referring to the Sage 1 G10/Maxamet that's in the Reveal. Sage 2 is still probably my favorite in the series. I'd find hard to pass on a upgraded version of that too but, given that I'm completely happy with the Sage 2 as is was made, it would need to have a much better steel a...

Don't get me wrong, I think Maxamet is pretty amazing stuff but I think I would've preferred S45VN or even SPY27. For some reason Maxamet doesn't seem appropriate for the Sage. I'll be getting one regardless
Are you suggesting a Sage 2 with upgrading steel? Be still my beating heart.

I wonder which Mules 29 & 30 are going to be. Goes from 28(Spy27) to 31(s45vn). Any guesses?
There was some talk of SRS-13. Perhaps that will be a mule before it goes to the Seki line?

Re: Reveal 6 Live!

I was shocked to see the Sage 1 in Maxamet. That immediately got me thinking that we may see another Sage 2. Don't really care for Maxamet, but nothing would grab my attention like a new Sage 2. I am really interested in what some sharpeners have to say about the CBN benchstone. There are a lot of g...
