Re: Sydney fires

The fires are horrendous down south with 2 cyclones in a week off the coast and heavy rain in Northern Australia where I am. Had the wettest day on record with over 22 inches (562mm) in less than 24 hrs on Friday. Definitely a country of extreme conditions. Have donated several times for down Souths...

Re: Would you pay up-front for a Forum knife?

I'd be happy to pay up front for any knife chosen as the next Spyderco Forum Knife. Model, materials, and cost don't enter into it for me. I have every Spyderco Forum knife offered, to date, and consider them to be display pieces and a sub-collection within my collection, so my normal prejudices vi...

Re: Forum knife 2020 - model poll

Why no Fixed blade in the vote. It’s about time the forum knife was a fixed blade.

My suggestion yesterday was a fixed blade Mule, G10 one black one red scale.

Re: Best Edge Performance Steel between these choices?

Rex 45 but I would still pick M4 over all as it’s my sweet steel. (Sharpening butchers knives for years it’s just a steel I like for edge retention and sharpening easy with a steel between throwing on a stone.) Maxamet is another great steel but Very temperamental when sharpening. ( you can sharpen ...

Re: What would it take to get a Forum Knife?

A Mule full tang G10 handles one red one black.

Log off now and leave if you want money in your wallet. Spyderco’s are like potato chips, you can’t just have one or two.

And

Definitely don’t look at this thread

Re: AFI opinions vs non AFI opinions

Find carrying a PE there is a few times I might need a SE and with carrying a SE there is a lot more times I wished it was a PE. Have carried a combo before but find I always only sharpened the PE as the SE didn’t get as blunt. This led to blade distortion after a few times. So now I just carry one ...

Re: Design details that are deal breakers

Flippers..I don’t like them, don’t need them, would never need to flip a knife open.

Re: The best thing about a knife is ...

The best thing is the handle, try using one without ;) This! There are a lot of sharp things that you can use to cut stuff, but they're worthless if you can't hold them! You got it, Also funny how many people buy a knife by handle colour and go crazy over certain colours when the same model has bee...

Being a ex butcher I bone and roll nearly everything and use the bones for gravy stock.

Having plenty of butchers netting makes it easy
