Re: Who's gonna get a Counter Puppy?

I am! :) I think I'm gonna go for a blue serrated one. And you? Just ordered a purple SE and blue PE! My girlfriend doesn't share my passion for cutlery is a normal human being and so these will be perfect for the dishwasher and knife drawer. (We have two sets of knives at our place, one in a drawe...

I tend to like my salts colorful but prefer orange to yellow, not everyone’s cup of tea I’m sure but I’m happy with mine tiger-style.

Re: Hope for the Caly 3.5?

I think the Caly 3.5 was one of my better designs and doesn't need a lot of design improvement, in my opinion. Much of limitations are the result of the maker so exotic steels not made in Japan, screw construction and higher numbers are what prompted us to move the FRN to Taichung. This would permi...

Re: Caly 3/3.5 interest Poll

I'm definitely in. The Caly is a classic design. Polished micarta, black or ivory, reminds me of the original Calypso, which is a great throwback.

My preference would be an ivory 3.5 in LC200N or K390.

Re: Caribbean Scales: Love, or Hate?

Ahem, I love the Caribbean scales, the bumblebee colour didn't really fit my needs though. Bought one after Evil D reminded me that it's easy enough to change the colour. https://i.imgur.com/wnzcb2S.jpg Yours and Evil's look awesome. I've been avoiding the Caribbean solely because the colors are to...

...high viz Police 4 lightweight, like in orange? I like this in an outdoor type knife.

+1. Big blade, SE, high visibility; best knife ever to use (and drop, and then find) in the woods.

Caribbean Scales: Love, or Hate?

Cilantro. Crocs. The Dallas Cowboys. French fries and mayo. Boondock Saints. The Caribbean's scales.

Either you love them, or you hate them -- there is no middle ground. Which is it?!

Re: October and Rex45

Rextober is the best. Stunning! That patina just from normal use or from certain objects? Butter and steak! Not sure which specifically lends the blue. I take a salted strip steak and flash fry it medium rare in a pan with half a tablespoon of butter and that's the effect it has on both Rex45 and K...

Since the start of October I've been carrying my Burnt Orange Rex45 para3 every day.

Same, PM2 here. The burnt orange fits the mood for sure.

Count me in for both: more rex, and more orange!

if a frn version is made, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE give it the more rounded corners/edges like the Para 3

This plus a wire clip would be fantastic. Very much down for a LW chief.

Re: Upsized Sage?

The Super leaf or the Mannix 2 are pretty close. Great suggestions with the Superleaf and Manix. Here's what I'd like in a larger (really, longer) Sage over either of those two knives, which, spoiler alert, has a lot to do with food prep: Thinner stock for slicing (2.5mm-3mm; Superleaf is 4mm) RIL,...

Re: Upsized Sage?

Is it time for the Sage to have a BIg Brother? I'd love to see a 3.5" - 4" Sage. It's one of my favorite models but I don't carry it as often as I would were it a little larger. It's a great not-so-tactical knife for social situations where a PM2 & friends might get some looks. I usually carry an A...

Here's another one sourced, I believe, from these forums. I can't remember whose it is. Please yell if you know.

It already looks like a priceless relic. (What's the opposite of a safe queen?)
