Re: Which knife for my wife?

I also prefer green. I wonder if the first answer to your question would come from Cuscadi? I ask because generally scale makers specialize on certain knives, usually because they have built designs into CNC type of machines. The second question would be about your local laws, import possibilities a...

Re: Kitchen knife nerds- why basic carbons?

All of my Japanese slicers (razers) are SG2/R2. Anything that gets near a bone such as a Honesuki is a good blue/white carbon. I also have a full rack of Traditional/Spyderco kitchen knives and a 1 1/2lb full tang carbon Cleaver. Just like EDC, I think it is good to have a full range of steels, size...

Re: Spyderco Nightstick - Neck Knife?

It's been a long time since I have thrown knives so I won't be trying that for you. I do find it to be well balanced and the signature scales which provide great indexing are a plus. I would consider weight however. On my scale the knife alone is 3.9 oz (which may be a plus for heft) and with the in...

Re: Your New Knife Ritual

I have accumulated a lot of knives over the years so I got a digital picture frame for my desk that changes pictures every few minutes and put a picture of each of my knives in the rotation. So my first thing is to take pictures for ID (if lost/stolen) then load the best picture of the knife into th...

Nicely done. The maple is beautiful and the design to accomodate the slots/knives is perfect. Great motivation to go and get the Carters.

Re: A long-winded tale of how 2 orange-and-black Militaries came to be

Great adaptation/conversion. Nicely done. I've not had the courage to try a scale change with one of my Millies but your final product is encouraging. Congrats also on snagging a BG-42. Nice to see one in the wild and definitely a grail for me, as is the ATS-34. I think another point of your project...

Re: A question to Mr. Glesser about "the Maxamet situation"

If I’m not mistaken I think you can find the maxamet para3 but I haven’t really looked lately. Show me, cause I don't think so... I got one from Knives Ship Free a few months back and just looked, still says: "IN STOCK & READY TO SHIP Current Stock: SALE PRICE: $206.50" Here is a link to the page: ...

Re: Wharncliffe flipper

I've been waffling on a Smock. It has a nice long nearly flat profiled edge, though hollow ground. And it has an approach to the Compression lock that intrigues me as I have difficulty managing them from the top. Plus that reverse tanto kind of a tip looks like it can perform a lot of precise cuttin...

Re: Mcbee after carry?

I have to agree with "secondary", but so are all the other (3-6) knives I have at any given time. The McBee has found a spot in on of my cargo pockets and rides there unnoticed until I need it. Also agree it's best fit is with detailed, controlled cutting, not for slicing up a 2" Ribeye. And, yes, t...

Thanks JuPaul/Julia for the tip. I ordered from your link earlier this afternoon and just now got the confirmation. This one would have slipped past me had you not posted. Nice Save!

Re: sharpening issues

Thanks for asking this. I had never heard the tip about using a loop before and will start doing so. Also, I don't need phone book paper, my mailbox gets filled up with advertising flyers/material every day that's about the same quality. If you get these, don't toss them, cut them.

Re: Do you prefer knife reviews as videos or text & images?

When I voted for "video" I'm thinking active youtube type videos where the person is doing something with the knife (firearm), not sitting there holding it in their hand talking about themselves and the knife. For example, if I may, Mr. Ankerson, you have some great video knife in action reviews. Dan

Thanks Larrin: I enjoyed this read. This is very useful and timely information for me as I recently acquired a long sought after early Millie in 440V. It is a user but in very nice condition.
