Re: Vote: SMOCK v.s. IKUCHI

I did not have a closer look yet on how the release button of the comp. lock is constructed, but could it be that it REQUIRES some kind of choil , cause otherwise the infolded blade would collide with the release button mechanism? It does. Not a drawback for us who like choils though, and it's not ...

Re: I gave my best knives away. Now what?

A CW or 4V Manix 2 from ebay (depending on the grind you prefer). Why mess around with even smaller knives ? :)

Re: Vote: SMOCK v.s. IKUCHI

Just got the Smock in the mail. Instant addition to my rotation, I love it. Best Spyderco compression lock implementation ever, and I've tried a few (the only other knife with a stand-off enforced compression lock in my collection is the Szabo, which - even for me - is a little large for frequent ca...

Is that a Bravo-1? I’ve never held a Millie or seen one in person, but that comparison pic makes it look like a monster!
Yep. Open Military is about half inch longer than the Bravo 1.

Re: Of all your Spyderco knives, which gives the best, smoothest cut?

When it comes to Spyderco knives (fixed or folder, both are welcome) that you have personally used to cut various materials, which has the smoothest cut with the least hangup and resistance on materials? Usually, the one that I sharpened last. Which - statistically speaking - will be most likely ei...

Re: Mike, what do you think of the Smock ?

Dear Roland: I'm assuming you're talking to me... One of the criteria that I look at when I choose a personal-defense knife is how my hand contacts the handle and its various parts when held in a very hard combative grip. Everyone's hands are a little different, so depending upon hand size, finger ...

Re: Where is the love for the Manix XL??

I wonder why the Manix XL doesn't get the same love that other larger knives like the Shaman, Military, Police and now the Chief are getting?? :confused: This is one heck of a great looking knife. I've been waiting for an exclusive in Cruwear/4V/3V or a BHQ Jade/M4, but there has been nothing even ...

Re: Need help making a decision

The main thing about LA law appears to be that you have to conceal your knife, meaning pocket clip use is out for any blade 3” or longer. If you want to try the Manix 2, it’s my favorite small Spyderco, I can warmly recommend it. The Flytanium CF scales are good, but smooth. I also love the 4V M2, ...

Re: The one knife worth breaking my rule

Just a suggestion, Michael: the Smock is back in stock at several dealers. I'm guessing not for long, so I suggest to buy one and worry about the rule later :)

Re: Has anyone ever made a K2 into a flipper?

I love the K2. And I carry pocket knives inside my pocket, don't use clips. The K2 is so easy to flip for me with either hand, that I feel a flipper tab wouldn't really help in function, but make the knife more scary to carry since the K2's detent is not the strongest: I would fear it could accident...

Mike, what do you think of the Smock ?

Personally, I'd rather use another tool than a pocket knife for self defense :) ... but you never know, and I've seen Mike's videos and followed the history of the Yojimbo with great interest. It occured to me that besides size, the Smock and Yojimbo should be rather similar in function for SD: holl...

Re: Achieving blade drop without blade play

Could be that you need to adjust the stop pin tension. That could help if it was overly tightened. My guess too. I normally tighten all the screws on the clip side (including Pivot), and then adjust the action via Pivot and stop pin screw on the other side. I tighten both carefully until blade play...

Re: Im keeping my enduras. No to the police 4

Totally legit!!! I feel the same way about maxamet. I dont have any K390. And i dont disparage it. But its more expensive than a freakin Millie in S110V. I feel the price is off. Thats all. Once you've broken a Maxamet blade like I have, you might prefer K390 over it (as I do). And the s110v Millie...

Re: Advantages of 4 " (plus) blades?

I think you overestimate the size difference.... : : : It's pretty minor. That wide angle shot with the smallest in the front and the largest in the back is a little unfair to the larger knives :) Repost of an older photo: https://photos.smugmug.com/Picture-a-Week/2017/12242017/i-MHwqDKQ/0/a1a08849...

Re: Im keeping my enduras. No to the police 4

Walmart has the P4 for $188.47, free shipping.

The cheapest comparable/available Endura (Pakkawood = G10, metal back-spacer) is C10WDP for $168.97 at knifecenter.

Don't forget, there were price increases beginning of the year.

Which Szabo ? You could extend your rules to allow two versions of the same steel, plain vs dlc :)
