Re: Warehouse knife

I started out carrying a Benchmade Mini Grip, clip got caught on too many things and wanted a bigger blade. Moved to a Tenacious (my first Spyderco) for several years. Eventually I moved on to carrying PM2s or Manix 2s. If you think it is going to get dropped a lot or abused I would go with somethin...

Re: First real spyderco for sons 18th B-day ???

Tenacious was my first Spyderco I bought before I could make the commitment of spending $100+ on a knife. I always wanted either a Manix or PM. It was always a hard decision for me. Currently I own 4 Manix 2s and 5 PM2s. I carry a PM2 far more than a Manix. Both are great knives but I much prefer th...

Re: What happened to the Kapara

I just put in for a preorder at knifecenter with a $50 coupon from my knife reward points. $138.50 is a good price and maybe it will stop me from checking several knife vendors throughout the day to see if they are back in stock. Not that often that I get this eager over a knife. Liquid_Cobra's Inst...

Re: What happened to the Kapara

Was the kapara released or not? I've seen several posted on Instagram showing the knife but all the retailers I use show out of stock or preorder. Knifecenter says delayed by manufacturer. :confused: One European dealer (knivesandtools) states it will be in stock again in 3 days, another one (Lamni...

Re: What happened to the Kapara

Well I guess that's good I guess. It's a beautiful knife. I'll just have to wait a little longer then. Until then I'll keep watching YouTube videos and Instagram pictures to tease myself.

Love my K2, but people around me always look at me funny when I pull it out. I also really want a Tatanka and Szabo.

Re: Sage Users: Tell me about this knife.

I've only got the Sage 3 & 5 currently but they don't ever get carried really. I carry two knives a day a large and a small and the Sage knives are just a little bigger than my small knives I like to carry and a little smaller than my larger knives I like to carry. Nothing wrong with them but I have...

Re: Your last purchase in 2017

Well I couldn't take it any longer. Went ahead and pulled the trigger on a Spydiechef and a Police 4. But at a total price tag of $271.94 I wont really complain too much. I probably wont receive either before the end of the year, but maybe my birthday present Bob Lum Darn Dao might come in before th...

Re: Missed the boat one the Slysz Bowie

I think I waited 3 days after I saw the announcement of it being discontinued that I finally decided to pony up the cash for one. By that time it was sold out everywhere I looked. It has been on my Want list for a while but I wasn't able to really justify the price. Regreting it now. Still want the ...

Yes I was more wondering about her opinion on the Kiwi 4.

Re: Thanks Bandwagon

Welcome to the forum. From the list of knives you have named I will give you my opinions on the ones I have used. Just hoping to help you narrow it down. First off the PM2, one of my personal favorites. The blade length, ergonomics and lock type are all excellent. You can also get it in several diff...
