Re: Talking about your traditional knives

Re: Liner Lock Failure??

I really like a good liner lock. The ones on militaries are some of the best. My Polestar also had a good one though the action wasn't anywhere near a Military. Spyderco really does know how to make a good liner lock. Honestly, liner lock with phosphor bronze washers is a folding knife to me. How I ...

Re: What would you like to see next from Byrd?

Knives to compete with Civivi, Bestech, etc. So, nice g10, more bd1, thin grinds. I know it can be done. Obvioysly I don't know if it is worthwhile focusing on competing in that price point but hey. Also, what Vivi said about fixed blades. Or even make them 40-50$$. I think they'd likely be good sel...

Re: Sage 5.2

I've been over the compression lock in my collection. Just kinda fell out for me the last 6 or 7 months. But, I do want to try the button compression lock. I love button locks and I think a button with the compression lock behind it instead of a plunge lock would solve some issues plunge locks may h...

Re: Hardness vs Toughness vs Strength

I'm gonna wait for BBB or another steel aficionado to chime in.

BUT I do think the statement "hardness = how wear resistant a steel is" is clearly false. Hardness = the quality of being hard.

Re: Linerless: Any issues?

I wouldn't hesitate on buying a linerless knife. I personally hesitate on frn because aesthetics but liners don't matter in my experience.

Re: Top 5 “Other” in 2019

Good thread idea. Surprised it hasn't taken off. These were my stand outs from this year. The CRK I didn't get this year but it saw a lot of use. I'd recommend any of these knives without a doubt.

Re: Talking about your traditional knives

So this one doesn’t really qualify as a traditional to me, but it’s a slipjoint so maybe. Real steel Luna, titanium handle, n690 and a pocket clip. Thin blade stock, ground super thin behind the edge. Really liking it so far. B7143B25-4A1E-4D70-B4AA-C5E18E31D195.jpeg Definitely not a traditional bu...

I've been carrying around a Queen stockman recently and its been a pleasure to use. https://files.catbox.moe/63igdv.jpg Three blades is a bit much though.
