Re: Your toughest Spyderco Folder

Having a lot of folders over the years

GB1 without a doubt. Tank

But the pacific salts have taken a beating on my boat for years and always surprise me on the build quality of Spyderco.

Re: Taught my wife how to use the Sharpmaker

That’s really cool, Doc! You’re wife sounds like a champion. :) Mine has no interest in knives whatsoever. If I asked her if she wanted to learn how to use my SharpMaker she’d laugh at me, call me an idiot (something I’d strenuously deny) and ask me how I might feel about being stabbed. Ah, hahaha!...

Re: Spyderco Sheepsfoot Blades: Likes, Dislikes and Favorite Models?

Used a Pingo as a work knife for a year and a half. Had more comments on it than any knife I have ever carried by the public.
Loved the versatility of the blade for making sandwiches in the field of all things. The perfect cut one side, butter spreading the other side.

Re: S30V, VG-10; But If I Had A Choice???

I buy the models I like. Steel not that important as I have mastered sharpening (20+ years butchering)

To me $60 more for a PM2 in Maxamet compared to S30V at Knifecenter at the moment it would be S30V every time. Few extra $ for S35VN OK but not $60 dollars any steel. (Ok maybe M4 :D :D)

Re: What's wrong with S30V?

Nothing wrong with it at all. A high end steel to many.

“The premium steel sprint effect”

( Sometimes I look at two knives of the same make one with blue or whatever scales and a premium steel for $50+ more than the black scale S30V and don’t see the extra $50 )

Re: Family friendly jokes

Bruce the Aussie builder was going through a house he had just built for the woman who owned it. She was telling him what colour to paint each room. They went into the first room and she said "I want this room to be painted a light blue." The builder went to the front door and yelled, "GREEN SIDE UP...

Re: Are you carrying knives with an index choil?

Para3 so yes
Salt 1 tomorrow so no

Doesn’t bother me if a knife does or doesn’t.

Favourite knife is the Gayle Bradley 1

Re: Batoning serrated (H1) edges - ?

I’m often baffled at TV ‘survival’ type scenarios, where people use their knife for all sorts of things like digging in dirt and rocks, chopping and prying at edge destroying material, chipping and scraping away at hard objects etc. Yes it can do all those things, but if it’s the only cutting tool ...

Re: Batoning serrated (H1) edges - ?

Have a few Pacific Salts I use on the boat, H1 takes some beating on some of the bigger fish I fillet and cut up for bait. Cut some pretty thick tuna bones ( baton style ) over time and never had a issue

I would be carrying a junction style knife myself in your predicament explained above.
