Re: Old Forum Members: Where Are They These Days?

I've been here since the very earliest days (July 2000). There were a number of years when I was mostly buying custom knives and didn't visit much, but I've been back for a while now. Still don't post much. This is a most interesting anomaly :) Brother I'm finding that there are a lot of old School...

Re: Collectibles

Vintage watches Omega and Longines DEEA63DB-94D9-4622-8435-1E0B661DB998.jpeg Nice! Wittnauer and Wyler are my focus, with a good number of mid-century and earlier Elgins, though many of my nicest are from other makers... As far as collections, I only collect things that have utility, but I tend to ...

Happy Birthday "SPYDUTCH"

Haven't seen the good Brother around in a while but "Spydutch" has been a pillar for the Spyderville community for quite some time now and it's his Birthday today. To one of my longest known Spyder-Edged Fraternity Brothers SPYDUTCH I personally want to wish him a very Happy Birthday and hope his fu...

Re: NFL Season: 2019-2020

If ANY NFL team could sign Kaepernick and not cause a giant crap storm, it would be the Rooneys. The Pittsburgh Steelers organization is just NFL royalty. Pretty much above reproach. Authors of course of the Rooney Rule. I'd like to see it happen. But, Kaepernick would need to really behave himself...

Re: Spyderco Models That Deserved To Be Offered In SE

I'm a big Spyderedge fan. The thing I would like to see most would be a cheap mora-esque style fixed blade in the Byrd line with a long 8"-9" fully spyderedged blade. Basically a long slim blade that used come stab into things like bags of mulch and rip through both sides of the bag in one motion. ...

Re: Spyderco Models That Deserved To Be Offered In SE

Ulize is top on my wish list. Seems like most of the models I'm most interested in seeing this happen with are also models that didn't really sell that well to begin with so it seems even less likely to happen. I see what you're saying but I don't agree and here's why. Take the case I've just made ...

Re: Spyderco Models That Deserved To Be Offered In SE

I do agree with what you're saying BLOKE :) With the right sharpening tools serrations are really no problem as all. But what model do you want available in SE. I'm sure you've got lots of cutting chores that you would love a Spyderedged blade for. What uses would you have for a plain edged Hawkbill...

But please!!!??? and I really mean it too>> I want the SUPERHAWK to be offered in SE this next time around. Because no Hawkbill blade sho...

Spyderco Models That Deserved To Be Offered In SE

Over the years there have been some great Spyderco models that I just know in my gut would have been much bigger on the sales charts had they offered them in Spyderedge. We've talked about this before in the past but there are so many models now that didn't get teeth that it's hard for me to keep a ...

Re: Now's The Time: For A New Style Of Hawkbill

I would most definitely be in for some sort of new Superhawk....one done in LC200N would be amazing. I’d be all over that. The Superhawk has always been a bit of a Spydie grail for me. I think that the Superhawk would still be in the main line up to this very day had they offered it in Spyderedge. ...

Re: Compression lock hawk style knife ideas

I would embrace the idea of a Hawkbill blade in the size range of a Superhawk or Spyderhawk with a compression lock. But I would rather see a big Hawkbill with a ball bearing lock if I had my main wish fulfilled. I find a Ball Bearing Lock a bit easier to implement with one hand in many instances. L...

Oh wow. There goes Pittsburgh.... Thanx for the 411 JD. Just goes to show you how fast this league can change. Sometimes superstars are created out of adversity. And who knows maybe their back up might just be the next Kurt Warner for all we know. Kurt Warner literally came out of nowhere in the 19...

Re: Now's The Time: For A New Style Of Hawkbill

If the phenolithic resin isn't waterproof enough, what would you coat it with? And for that matter, if you did find something that would seal it to prevent warpage and shrinkage, what would it do to the desirable properties of the material? G-10 is more practical when your product may be going anyw...

Re: NFL Season: 2019-2020

As a Dallas fan I have no love for Philly but I have always thought Foles is a great player. Philly should have traded Wentz after they won the Superbowl for picks and drafted key replacement pieces to make another run at the Superbowl. New England is great at playing the compensatory picks game an...

Re: NFL Season: 2019-2020

Falcons and Eagles are a huge rivalry. Falcons pulled it off. That game with Phillie & Atlanta was one of the hardest fought games so far in this 2019 season IMO. Both QBs showed a lot of poise and both defensive units did really well throughout the game IMO as well. I couldn't hardly believe that ...

Re: The GOLDENSTONE: Your Thoughts and Wishes?

I have been experimenting using the 308 for convex shears. Angles on these can be from 30 to 60. And pressure has to be light. Having this in UF with a base with these angles would make for a ultracompact unit to take into salons in my scissor display portfolio. That 308 Slipstone has a lot of viab...

Sal found out that Micarta is affected by environmental changes much more than G-10. Have a knife made with Micarta handle in humid coastal Japan and ship it to dry, mile-high Golden and it may very well warp or shrink, especially if the Micarta isn't backed with steel. When you are doing business ...
