Re: Folders for food prep?

Have a lot more fixed blades than folders.

I get stick from the misses because:
I have a knife from France with 5000 year old bog wood handle with mammoth inlay I use just for tomato’s
A Japanese butchers knife with 127 layers of steel just for meat.
Etc......
(Each one hand washed after each use)

So I’ve recently gotten into watches... a little TOO into watches... and needless to say I’ve been looking at them a lot lately.
Good place to look ( not just Omega )

Re: Spyderco: What makes the brand so good?

Knife for everyone ($50 to $500)
Steel for everyone (have been loads of them over the years)
Design for everyone (truck loads of them)
Size for everyone (from leprechauns to giants)

The Spyderco family more than the Spyderco company.

Neutral on the jade look, but wouldn’t care if it was pink with purple polka dots, it’s the M4 that I like :cool:

Re: SCORE!!!

I found a Pacific Salt in my boat I had lost for 2-3 years and replaced.
It had fallen in a seat post hole, went to move the seats a few weeks ago for a extra person and pulled the cap someone had put on when they had moved the seat years ago. Score.!

Chuffed even if it was mine to begin with.....

Re: H-1 is subpar???

Use a Pacific Salt PE to fillet and dress plenty of big barramundi and never had a issue. These get filleted scales on as the scales are too big. Probably get 3 or 4 fishing trips between a sharpen. Love H1 for salt water and have been using it for many many years in PE as well as SE The fish are bi...

Re: What number of Spydercos are in your active rotation?

All of mine see use, have 5 in a fruit bowl on the table and grab one each day or so. Fruit bowl gets changed once every couple of months. On sharpening duties I will swap one or two from the stash to the fruit bowl. Tend to like a colourful fruit bowl lately so have a green Delica, orange Pingo, ye...

Re: Are you done with 2019, Spydie wise? What do you wish for in 2020?

Yes, done with all knives this year. Near done with knives altogether and seriously wondering how many knives are enough? If I lived for half a dozen lifetimes, used the ones I have, I reckon I'd still have knives left over. :rolleyes: Same, done to a M4 fixed blade drops OR the Aussie $$ improves ...

Re: Spyderco Name Recognition?

I think what you say is true, JD. Off the top of my head, there's only a few times I remember seeing them in use in Australia, not including where I've introduced them to friends. Once was when one of the senior range officers at my local shooting range had to cut open a bulk pack of cardboard targ...
