Re: Microtech advice needed

I'm really trying to get a Combat Troodon with one side serrated and one side plain. I've a Bladehq exclusive Ultratech with a g10 cover and it's plenty grippy. Mine's with a drop poont blade though. Actually, Bladehq dropped a new g10 Ultratech exclusive today. It's jade g10. Mine's from 2017 when ...

Re: The Superior Delica

I prefer the native 5. Better ergos for me, better blade shape for me, easier to carry for me, better steel, better lock. I feel like probs a stronger pivot. Delica is fine. I have 5 or 6. They're very collectible and they do everything they need to do. I've gifted them too. I wish they were ground ...

Re: Spyderco Kephart knife

The Kephart design is my favorite for utility and woods stuff. However, I don't know how spyderco could make it fresh. You can't change the blade shape and you can't change the handle shape. Otherwise it isn't a Kephardt.

Re: What "Other" is in your pocket???

Y'all, these lil Hogue autos are amazing. I think I'll be picking up the wharncliffe version.
CPM 154, 2.75 in blade, solid button lock.
Best factory edge I've ever had.

Re: Cracked UKPK (ti) backspring?

Dang that sucks. Hope they can get it fixed for you. I don't hear about backsprings snapping too often save on custom slip joints that are made with really heavy tension. I wonder if they can mod it so that the new backspring will work.

Re: Bought used knives

Do whatcha want. Looks like a pretty decent mini collection. Jhot Singh for self defense and a cool looking blade, older Native (Native 3? Or 4?) For edc, and a small fixed blade for small fixed blade uses ( EDC plus T (t for tang lol). I'd clean em up.

Re: Slide cut for reflex sight

Personally, I would go with the EAA/Tangfolio Witness in 10mm (or 38 super) but I can't stand Glocks. Am interested in reflex sights. Well, I forgot I was interested in them until this thread. I will be checking them out now. You mind me asking why you can't stand Glocks? I've personally been on a ...

Re: Spyderco/Murray Carter Kitchen Knife Collaboration.

Carter is a legend. He's also a big supporter of getting carbon steel back in the kitchen. I know he uses white a lot and usually san mai. Like Pancake said, he uses forging steels. But I really think if you boight on of his hand forged kitchen knives or fixed blades, his steel would impress you. I'...

Re: Dlc sells out faster than satin

I'll add, when the dlc starts wearing, it looks nice. Something about blade that looks well used with dlc fading on the edges, at the tip. Spyderco's (and cold steel's) doesn't seem to wear away all that much compared to some other brand's though. I had a Contego that I had custom smooth and contour...

Re: How Spyderco came out on top

I have a bunch of Spyderco folders. Many I honestly don't like. The para 3 doesn't cut well in my uses of it. Manix 2 is too gimpy. Para 2 was what got me into Spyderco and started my love but I see the model now as not making sense. I used to love the compression lock but I can do without. However,...

Re: Dlc sells out faster than satin

I buy dlc when I think the knife looks cooler in it. Like my dlc native 5 lw with serrations. Looks sick. Shaman looks great with dlc too. Pm2 nah. That's literally the only reason I'll pick dlc over another finish. Same with other brands. I think the Socom Elite looks better with the black two tone...

Re: Spyderco BM Proper Killer!

What about something that could just be pinched open. Instead of double dents just put a small hole like on your fixed blades. Something you could feel but not really useful becaise it wouldn't be needed. That way you can keep a thin blade stock.

Re: Wal Mart Ammo

Still haven't figured out what was the cause of that ammo shortage. It sucked though. I have a few competing theories. I'll say this though, here in Oklahoma, ammo is wiped out at Walmart or was recently. As soon as Wal-Mart said no more handgun ammo, everyone rushed over and bought everything. Noth...

Re: Sage Backlock Micarta

Sage 4 needs to be brought back. Didn't get to own one but I've handled it and stuff. IMO it outclasses the delica, chaparral, and narive 5. It was superb.
