Re: New Knife Steel Ratings by Knife Steel Nerds

3V's placement in the charts takes the luster off of A8 Mod.

Vanadis 8, and CPM 15V look interesting.

Re: Textbook HISTORY: How Accurate Is It?

... But on the other hand the history of our Presidents here in the USA is probably very accurate. After 5 years of #FakeNews stories about Russia Russia, Russia, and the main stream media driving that propaganda to the 4 corners of the Earth, I doubt very much that the history of anything is true.

Re: New Knife Steel Ratings by Knife Steel Nerds

Thank you for pointing out that 420HC has poor edge retention. I'll stick with Spyderco's 4V fixed blades. I was looking at a Buck 916 Bowie Knife but forgetaboutit! I'll buy a 2nd Province in 4V, which was my initial plan.

LUV ME SOME 4V!

Thanks @Sal!!!

Re: How "In Shape" are You?

... All told, we walked 50.9 miles in exactly 18 hours (including about 1.5 to 2 hours' worth of breaks.) We learned a lot: pack more water, less food, more blister and first aid supplies, maybe chafing powder, wear better shoes, and probably most important, physically prepare. Lol. We hadn't done ...

Re: How "In Shape" are You?

UPDATE: I tried walking back in August and found that I have a nasty case of spinal stenosis. I saw a few DRs and that is their conclusion. In November, I'm buying a sheet of 3/4 inch thick plywood and will be getting on bicycle rollers in the house to drop 50lbs. I need the sheet of plywood to go b...

Re: NHL Season Openers!

Colorado scored 3 goals in 5 minutes of the 1st period. The Blackhawks held them to 1 goal over 2 periods, and managed to score 2. That first period was a blowout.

NHL Season Openers!

The Chicago Blackhawks had a horrible 1st period, but played well in the 2nd and 3rd.

Colorado Avalanche over the Chicago Blackhawks 4 to 2.

Re: Should Zome be Discontinued?

I'd like to see some forest green zome handles on fixed blades. Why do folders get all the action?

How about some Fred Perrin designed Street fixed blades with forest green zome handles? How about forest green zome blades too?

Re: Fully serrated Native Chief

"Who else would like to see this model offered with some teeth?"

I'm game, but I'd like to see it in SE K390 if Spyderco's results have been good. Spyderco has a number of SE K390 knives, they must have some data on them.

Thorough - Multi-Tool Face Off

I might use this video to pick a multi-tool. The video seems very well made.

Re: Martial Arts Experiences Discussion Thread

Rich Moon!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CyoYedSSUwM Creative! 🙂 It’s funny, but the biggest thing that stood out to me was the Chinese salute he gives at 0:55. That is definitely not a salute you would ever see in a Judo dojo (unless possibly in a Judo dojo in China). I’ve noticed seeing other...

Re: "Just In Case" knives?

I may have to buy one of Michael Janich's ChicagoJimbos. I always take whatever I normally carry because you cannot defend yourself legally with a knife in Chicago. It looks like the best solution to me if you have to go that route. Also, I've been trying to get my mom to get her FOID and CCW. Nothi...

Re: Martial Arts Experiences Discussion Thread

Ouch.

I never go to bars unless I go with a dozen martial artists that I know and respect. Going alone in to a bar for a few drinks is just insane nowadays.

And as my mom always told me, never talk to strangers. A stranger might put his boot upside your head!
