Knife Block

I was on the hunt for some new steak knives. After an exhaustive search, I settled on a set of Walco Boston Chop knives. Apparently these are used by high end steakhouses. I had to buy them from a restaurant supply store and they only came in sets of 12. Our knife block only had room for 6 but when ...

Re: Spyderco kitchen knives?

My issue buying Spyderco Kitchen Knives is that for the kitchen, I want a full matching set with a wooden block. I was hoping the Murray Carter collection would be it, but it's a few knives short of what I'd want in a set, no block and $1,500ish for 5 knives, a bit too steep. I would spend $1,500 to...

Comandante Grinder - Nitrogen Steel

So I stumbled upon this high end manual coffer grinder. The description says: Manufacturing a Nitro Blade is a serious engineering task which requires special tools and machinery, excellent craftsmanship and lots of experience. High-nitrogen martensitic steel is extremely difficult to work with. But...

Vacation Knives

Getting ready for my family's annual trip to the OBX. A week of salt and sand. A few years ago my first ever salt series got a major workout living in my shorts for the week, a Pacific Salt. Last year I donated my second Dragonfly Salt to the ocean. Hopefully I'll return home with all of them this t...

Re: Tanto PM2 Support Thread

So is this a one time run, when they're gone they're gone or is this going to be a regular production exclusive to BHQ?

Re: Lil Native S90V Sprint Run

I wasn’t interested in this, but I snagged a Lil’ Native Rex 45 sprint and love the knife. Makes this one more tempting.

What brings you more joy?

I've been thinking about this for quite a while. I have some Spyderco's that are "hard" use (not abuse) and they have the battle scars that show it. I also have some that I carry and use very lightly. The kind that if the need arises to cut something serious and it's in my pocket, I might actually g...

Re: How do you clean your oxidation spots?

For the rust in the below picture, I'll use Flitz I know its rust because an oiled paper towel removes orange color from the blade. Screenshot_20200701-112134_Gallery.jpg That's a Lil Native in REX-45 with the clip removed. I carry it deep pocket in thin dress pants and then end up sweating through...

Re: REX45 Lil' Native Alert Thread

I had given up on this one since I wasn't manically watching threads when it dropped. But then I got the KSF email and by dumb luck when I checked, it was still available and I caved in and hit "buy".

Re: My first glimpse at the Siren !

Mine should arrive on Monday! I already have the Spidiechef and Native 5 Salt. Not sure I need the Siren, but I am a Kayak Fisherman, so I just wanted to own the only Spyderco folder designed by a fellow Kayak Fisherman. Anxious to see how I like it and if it will get a lot of pocket time.

Re: McBee Owners

I absolutely love it! I work in an office so it’s a perfect little knife for opening letters and boxes, but it doesn’t “scare” people. Fit’s nicely in the watch pocket of my jeans with or without being clipped. Seemed expensive for how small it is, but once I had it in hand it was totally worth it.

Re: REX45 Lil' Native Alert Thread

Are any more of these going to drop or did I completely miss out? I wanted to get one of these but I’m so burned out of chasing drops on hot knives I couldn’t bring myself to stalk this one.

Re: Blue & Teal ZOME

I wanted the pink/purple zome delica to put away for one of my girls, but it sold out before I realized/learned what exclusives/sprints were. They love teal now, though Spyderco’s teal isn’t teal... turquoise maybe. I was in the same boat. I got lucky and grabbed a teal delica for my older daughter...

It’s funny how they sold out in minutes at REC and KnifeJoy but are still for sale at National Knives for days and now Knives Ship free.

Re: 2nd run Teal Dragonfly

Well, missed again. National knives will let you put it in your cart, but shows nothing when you attempt to pay. You might want to try again. I just tried and it seems to be working. I got all the way to check out with PayPal (I already ordered mine earlier so I wasn’t going to order again). If not...
