Re: Why all the Manix love?

If this hypothetical Manix LW backlock retained the refinement of the Manix 2 backlock.....be still my heart :p

Re: Why all the Manix love?

Well after all this time I finally gave in to all the temptation and bought a Manix 2! This is a fantastic knife, and the awesome CF and steel doesn’t hurt :D There is NO way this knife will ever come out of my hand unwillingly! I would almost like one with smooth scales and no jimping at all. If I...

Re: Mirrored stone wash finish love thread

Definitely a beautiful finish. It adds a nice touch of refinement and class to the blade. A touch of ...polish....if you will? Ok, I'll show myself out now. In all seriousness though, it's a great looking finish that I would love to see on more models. I have come to associate the typical crisp sati...

Re: Siren

That picture just reminds me how much I want a Waterway, even though folding knives serve me fine and I don't really have a realistic need specifically for fixed blades outside the kitchen.

Re: Astute ... Yess !

I very much like the looks of the Astute. Nice clean curves, and it looks like it will carry slim and also have good ergonomics. Should be a winner.

I love my backlock Manix 2 so much I had to hunt down the original Manix and Mini Manix backlocks. It's fascinating to see the evolutionary refinements and changes for the Manix 2.

Re: Siren

Although I just got my Siren, I observe the same behavior with regular G10. It tends to smooth out to the point that the texture is there but it doesn't particularly bite anymore. I can certainly believe that the sharp highs on the Siren G10 will smooth out, and am looking forward to seeing whether ...

Re: Siren

I just got my Siren in today, and it's fantastic! The blade has a very nice point and subtle belly and is ground nice and thin from some decently robust stock, the backlock is very refined and smooth, and the ergos....oh my those ergos. The hooked front of the handle just hugs my index finger and is...

Re: The Show youre manixes thread.

I finally added a Manix and Mini Manix to my collection to go with my Manix 2 backlock. I love seeing the evolution of the Manix line and the Manix 2 backlock was the most apple-to-apple way to compare the original series with the 2 series. Spyderco have really refined their Golden backlocks to an i...

Re: Community Sharpening Journal

That is a good point and makes sense when you put it that way. I certainly hope that's the case! This is my first experience with microbeveling, and I couldn't believe how fast and easy it was to sharpen the microbevel. This feels like it could be a game changer for my sharpening process.

Re: Community Sharpening Journal

I keep unintentionally lowering the edge angle as I freehand, so I decided to try to do it intentionally and consistently. Freehanded on DMT "Fine" to reprofile, then went through DMT Extra Fine and Extra Extra Fine, then to Spyderco ceramic in Medium, Fine, and Ultrafine. I probably didn't spend en...
