Re: Collection Limiting Rules

My latest rule is buy it before it’s discontinued. Had to buy a few lately that were in the list to be discontinued at the end of last year. But basically buy what I will use. Plenty of knives I like that I know I just wouldn’t use. ( and they are the ones that are a bit more expensive most of the t...

Re: Yojimbo vs PM2 durability

You can’t go wrong with a PM2 Iconic and Spyderco has sold plenty over the years.
Well, either really. But for me I have never warmed to the Yojimbo handle and profile closed.

Re: Thank you Sal for the pink Delica

Would definitely use a pink knife. Anything that's easy to see in the bush is a bonus for me.
The dog doesn't care what colour I have or use....(don't think she tells anyone either ;) )

Re: Function & Practicality Aspects of EDC

Probably ever knife I have would do for what I need doing. Cutting something. Could probably survive with a Delica and a Fixed blade camp knife. They all have the same function, they all have the same practicality. But it’s fun having hundreds of different sizes, shapes and colours to play around wi...

Re: Jeweler's Loupes & Magnifying devices?

Yes entomologist was correct. I’m in Australia so you might find a better place in the US. Clockmaker.com is probably the cheapest in Aus for these. (Being a loupe that’s worn a lot by watchmakers) Mrs orders through a lab supply company that they have a account with and most is still done by catalo...

Re: Jeweler's Loupes & Magnifying devices?

Mrs standy99 is a entomologist and has a draw full of loupes. Buying from a entomology supply website is so much cheaper than the same item bought at a jewellery loupe website and the range at a entomology site is 5x more.

Re: Best "work knives"?

Can’t beat a Delica SE wharncliffe for box cutting. But really one of the many Spyderco’s i own is a work knife At some point on rotation. Try to use a knife for a few months at a time nowadays. Camo Para 3 is it at the moment. Plain old Delica was before but had to lend that to a work mate that los...

Great thread, very cool. I am a huge fan of the Salt line. A military or PM2 combo edge Salt would be a grail Spyderco for me.

Re: POLL: Return of the SpyderSaw? Single bladed or as part of a Dyad?

Problem with saws is 2 things 1) once they are blunt they get replaced. Would have to compete with the cheap ones ( currently pay $9 for the one I keep in the boat ) 2) good old wire bush saw is a lot lighter for the once in a blue moon I need one hiking ( And under $10 ) and while camping I would u...
