My wife will use scissors, and so will I, when practicable, but she will eagerly and proudly use her Dragonflies when she can. Show off. :D :D
I think mine makes a point of using scissors just to stir me up!

Re: Riddle me this!

Ok, I LOVE riddles but my taste is more for the mathematical or physics related. I used to love word problems in math class...go figure. Here’s one that was given to me about 20 years ago. I turned this one around in my head for probably 3 months, chewing on it for a good half an hour a day. I actu...

Yeah, my wife stole mine, too!
Ha! I got my Mrs a Dragonfly Tattoo and it sits in her handbag, unused.

In a house full of knives I catch her running around looking for bloody scissors to cut things.

You can lead a horse to water....... :rolleyes:

Re: ORANGE Dragonfly? What do the ladies think?

Well, that explains a lot. Think of all the fluff I could have landed if I’d had a manly knife in my pocket. Here I was thinking it was my rough head.

Thanks Rusty, you’ve made my day.

Re: Knife myths you should not accept as true a priori (meant to be a POSITIVE thread!)

Placing a knife under the bed of a woman giving birth is believed to ease her pain during labor. Hard to confirm as knives aren’t allowed into hospitals here. :rolleyes: This reminded me of Irish faerie folklore. To ward of changelings you placed a knife in the crib of a child or bed of an adult. K...

Re: Para 3 FRN observation and question

Long-time lurker, first time poster: I've been EDCing a Para 3 FRN since the end of April, when they became available and I ordered one. I have found it to be an excellent everyday knife, and I love the wire clip that allows me to carry it much more discretely than my Paramilitary 2 - which isn't r...

Re: Factory edge poll

That Lum tip gives me flashbacks. Many an hour grinding away at new knives to get a perfect bevel. When I think of all the wasted steel :( Over grind at the heel doesn’t faze me too much at all Tim, Tips are another story altogether. The very tip is slightly over ground and slightly rounded which b...

Re: Just the brown SM flats

All this talk of fancy stones.
Where I’m from, you haven’t ‘arrived’ in the knife scene until you can achieve hair popping edges from a humble house brick, stropped on the bottom of the wifes feet.

Re: Factory edge poll

Voted yes because in the last couple years I've gotten lazy thanks to the Sharpmaker and I just micro bevel everything until it's thick enough to reprofile. I used to take a new knife and immediately reprofile it on my Edge Pro but it has been years since I bothered. They really should call it the ...

Re: Endura SE ffg

Hi Wartstein, I figured you’d be on board. I would prefer a full set of teeth. The current 8 large serrations on my Endura is perfect. Everything can stay the same, just ffg

Hi Doc, CQI, spot on.

Endura SE ffg

Do you reckon we’ll ever see the standard lightweight model Endura in SE ever move from sabre to full flat grind? I’ve been persisting with my serrated Endura and whilst I still prefer a plain edge, I’m almost ‘there’ with serrations. That bloody sabre grind isn’t doing it any favours though. We’ve ...
