Can anyone tell me why I don't get the E-blast? I add my name and email. I check my spam folder and spam blocker. I still don't know why I don't receive them. No idea why, but the same thing happens to me. I've submitted my name and email several times, and have yet to receive an e-blast. Maybe we ...

Several years ago, I saw a deal on a for-sale section of a forum advertising three NIB Temperances (one SE, one PE, one trainer) for $100. Thought about it, then decided against it. Went to bed, and five minutes later thought, "I should go buy those." Decided to wait and do it the next morning. Of c...

So far in this thread, at least ten models (not to mention various color choices) have been put forth as possible forum knife contenders. I can't imagine that the good folk at Spyderco view forum knife selection time as anything more than an exercise in frustration. :D With that said, I'll be happy ...

I had a similar experience with a Stretch (original SS handles with rubber inserts). It just did not feel good in my hand, even though it was an exemplary knife. I put it back in the box and forgot about it for a while. This pattern repeated itself a few times until I gave it to one of my best frien...

So I've identified an emerging pattern in my collection, namely Foliage Green G-10 scales, as evidenced by my Para D2, Khukuri, Barong, E4 FG G-10, and Manix 2 FG G-10. I understand that some of you are not fans of FG G-10, but I like its understated look, especially with a flat black clip (I even ...

Ah, White Castle. Discovered them while I was in college, and rarely miss an opportunity to partake of them when I'm on the road.

The frozen ones can't hold a candle to ones hot off the grill, served on a paper plate.

Woohoo!

When the 2009 Forum Native sold out in eight hours (and I did not get one), I was sad. When it became evident that no more would be made, I was sadder. When I unexpectedly found out about one that was available, I was excited. When it arrived today, I was ECSTATIC! Sorry for what is perhaps the wors...

I'm not totally certain that's entirely true.

I've used some Maxpedition gear for a few years, and have not had any problems with it.

As Deacon observed, it can be a little stiff initially, but everything I've used has broken in quite nicely. I have a backpack that get frequent use, and it is comfortable by my standards.
