Re: Large slipjoint Spydie, anyone?

I grew up using nail-breaker ex-army jacknives and an ancient bone handled, black bladed pocket knife from my grandfathers shed, sharpened to a wavey slither. Victorinox/Wenger were waaay too pricey for kids, except for those dreadful knock-offs which put me off SAK’s for years. Used victorinoxes c...

Re: Japanese steel Seki Sprints?

I mean steels that haven't been sprinted yet

Between takefu and Hitachi - there's decent choices

Are Hitachi white and blue that corrosion prone? Any worse than 1095?

Re: The Ladybug is a full size knife

So what's the ideal steel for a ladybug, practicality wise? I'd love the idea of k390 or zdp, but it sits at the bottom of a pocket where it could get damp in the summer, and it doesn't really jive with the often carried, rarely used nature of the ladybug - vg10 I guess? Or h1? But then you give up ...

Re: S30V Support Club

It's painfully average, but let's be honest, most people are barely exploring the limits M390 is popular because more chromium carbides means easier to sharpen for the average consumer It's like the difference between a car with good mid end torque and decent horsepower vs a car with no low end torq...

Re: Blade HQ copper rex45 pm2

I don't get the copper love. I'm an electrician, I work with copper all the time. It's a stinky metal. It's heavy. It can be really nasty when it tarnishes. It's very soft. What is the allure of copper knives? Brass is fine, I love my buck 110s. But copper just baffles me. It's only good for wiring...

I wonder if we're just gonna have to accept that certain regular production models are going to be out of stock for extended periods- i.e. Caribbean/maxamet/gb2
