Re: Heavy Duty Work Clothing: Your Pick?

+1 on the footwear! I’ve had a huge heel spur ground off, and I spend way more time and money on my footwear now. I use store-bought orthotic insoles, gel insoles, and will swap these around, as temperature and time on my feet can change things. Some shoes break-in “wrong” from new though, which is...

Re: Hawkbill Uses: PE or SE?

Anyone have any recent use cases for their PE Hawkbills? I love my Hawkbill Spydies and have 4 of them now, but they are all SE. I'm racking my brain trying to think of where a PE version would be preferred to SE, but I can't come up with much. Scraping old grip tape and adhesive from my golf club ...

Re: Sharpening with leather.

The effect on maintaining an edge with diamond vs CBN is identical. I have also used CBN/leather for years on kitchen knives to maintain the final working sharpness with ease. I also believe it removes the broken distorted apex rather than bending it back into alignment as with very hard ceramics o...

Re: The PERFECT Double Bladed Folder?

I would not mind seeing something like the dragonfly FRN with an extra blade. The light weight would definitely be compelling. This. With a ZDP PE blade and an H-1 Hawkbill serrated blade. No that wouldn't be my idea of a premium double-bladed folder. First off I would only want something in the si...

Re: Lansky spyder serrations sharpener.

I used to have a lot of respect for Lansky's sharpening products. But in the past 5 years or so it seems that many companies that make sharpening tools have passed them up. I like all of Spyderco's sharpening tools far better than anything Lansky ever made. I even like DMT's sharpening tools better ...

Re: Victorinox photo and discussion thread!

I really love those SAKs with that Swedish type garden pruning saw on them. That Saw is super functional. I've used mine with the Vic Swiss TOOL an Swiss Tool X on many occasions. It's amazing how fast that saw works compared to a regular pruning saw. That's a decent selection. As I've said dozens ...

Re: Why does tooling get destroyed?

I thought they destroyed it so the counterfeiters couldn't get it How could counterfeiters get the tooling if it's in Spyderco's possession? Not trying to be a troll or anything of the like but I would think it would be far too risky for counterfeiters to try to invade a company's manufacturing fac...

Re: The Wire Clip: express your love, hate, indifference

I don't mind the wire clip at all. I have them on a couple or three Spyderco models. I still say that the best pocket clip that Spyderco ever made was the one that they used on the GUNTING model. To me that was the very best clip they ever made. Really it depends on which model you are talking about...

Someone say Barramundi Yeah I said "BARRAMUNDI" :) and I just had another dinner of it last night. I'm really starting to like that fish. It's really good baked in either high grade Olive Oil or Sunflower Oil. I bet it would be a really "fighter" of a fish just by looking at it. I just found a loca...

Re: Victorinox "Champ" model?

That's a handsome looking unit you have there "bearrowland". What blows me away about Victorinox SAKs and Multi-tools both is that all the tools on these SAKS or Multi-tools actually work and work very well too. I'll keep saying it Victorinox really gives you good stuff for no more money than you ha...

Re: NFL Preview of 2019-2020

I am really hoping my Vikings can pull through this year. I was not overly impressed with Cousins last year and I personally think we should have kept Keenum. I'm unsure if the bet stands this year but in previous years my boyfriend and I (we like different teams) said that if the Vikings get a rin...

Wow, I expected to see a jumpmaster or some kind of fixed blade there.
Yeah I thought a fixed blade would make more sense too. Nut sure what a diver's overall cutting chores are but if I were to be doing underwater activities I would personally want a fixed blade myself.
