I'd buy a Ronin 2 in better steel.

I know. I'm spoiled! :smlling-eyes

Native Chief would be fantastic!
I'd like the Native Chief fixed blade too. Make it a 4.5 inch S30V or better and I'd buy 2.

I believe Conan also went to a school where the students carried blades.

Re: Reveal 11 Live!

Way to go Shawn Houston! Named in the Spyderco Reveal 11 as the designer of the 15V heat-treat protocol. Congratulations! I'm hoping that this Spyderco knife hits it out of the park and we see more 15V. Like maybe the Native Chief? :smiling-hearts I like big knives, I cannot lie. The Stretch 2 XL l...

Re: School allows kids to carry knives!!!!!

The first time that I used a knife for self defense was around the age of 10 in Chicago. I had a Case pocket knife and 3 kids approximately 5 years older than me and much larger, chased me into a church where I sought refuge from their physical attack. I opened the folder up and told them to leave m...

Re: Learning Martial Arts At Home

A little tiny Chicago legal folder saved my tail one evening on the South Side of Chicago. 4 to 5 guys were kicking and swinging at me and all that I did was draw the knife to my hip, keep it there, and yell, "Knife!" and they let me walk away. I got tired of running from problems when I w...

Re: Learning Martial Arts At Home

Look up Master Kirk McCune on Facebook from Bahala Na and see if he teaches via live streaming. It would be a good investment. I am 62 and haven't practiced what I've learned while dabbling in at least 10 martial arts for a decade, yet when pressed into service on the street in an altercation, I was...

Re: What Are ya Dipping?

I've quit tobacco like 4 years ago, but coffee won over me. Can't skip even a single day of coffeine, otherwise my head feels like exploding and I'm grumpy entire time :D Yea, I like caffeine too. I usually have a coffee a day, and 5+ cups of tea. I'm not grumpy when I don't have it, but it certain...

Re: What Are ya Dipping?

The science is clear about it, there is little to no harm. Sorry but you're kidding yourself if you believe that. That's what they said about cigarettes too years ago I started with chewing tobacco when I was in high school. Went to cigarettes in college. Smoked a pack a day for probably 35 years t...

Re: James Keating Civilian Demonstration

... The second, much to the point zhyla brought up, may be a critique, but is more of a question since I'm not really in a position to criticize. Why would he or anyone choose to do so much knife yielding inside the confines of his own limbs and be so exposed to his own edge? What's the benefit to ...

AT&T IP Address Blocked, but NOT VPN?

The warning link when I do not use a VPN says I am a spammer and it is in the AT&T domain. Cannot figure this one out.

"Forbidden. Your IP belongs to a high spam risk network. Please, try again without VPN."

Dear Naperville and Jim: Thank you both for sharing your backgrounds and insights. Naperville, thank you for the kind words regarding my videos.

Re: James Keating Civilian Demonstration

I've reviewed a lot of videos pertaining to martial arts here on the forums. https://forum.spyderco.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=84649 The Keating video seems pretty normal. So far I'm 15 minutes in and see nothing unusual for an entry level video. I even skipped ahead and it is in keeping with weapo...

Re: What Are ya Dipping?

Took me forever to quit. Has been close to 20 years. Cope fine cut was my jam. Disgusting habit and if I were to go back it would be Snus. I used Nicoret gum to quit and if you ever go down that road, you can chew each piece twice. It’s expensive so double “dipping” the gum helps. Smoking is grosse...

Re: What Are ya Dipping?

I dipped, smoked non filtered, filtered and cigars for around 10+ years, probably 15 but I prefer not to count. I don't miss it and have vaped since 09/15/2015. I think the vaping is the least destructive to my health. I am addicted to nicotine. I've quit all of these things dozens of times, sometim...

Re: I'm Testing Some Nootropics. Anyone Else?

Last night I tried the Korean Panax Ginseng instant tea. I had forgotten that it was instant tea!!! There is no tea bag, it is loose ginseng in the tea bag sized package. I used just one package. They recommend one to two packages. It was fine, not a strong taste and no aroma of any kind. No bad tas...
