Re: Manix v Manix XL v PM2

Most was covered already, but I want to say this: Manix XL is larger than it first looks, and heavier. So if you need a folding outdoors knife, not an EDC, that's your choice. If not go for the normal Manix 2 or even the lightweight model (maxamet is the king of edge retention out of all the offerin...

Re: What did you use your Spyderco for last?

To show our new E&I tech how easy and convenient the Spyder hole is to open a knife, vs thumb studs. One of the other guys brought him over to my area to introduce me to him...and because I'm known as "the knife guy" and he noticed the new guy had a pocket clip and showed him his Benchmade Bugout. ...

Re: Terravantium, Dendritic Cobalt

This was great about 15-20 years ago when LC200N and H1 wasn't developed yet. These 2 steels are superior to it in every single way except the magnetic part. Also, that "holding an extremely sharp edge for a long time" is just marketing. These cobalt materials are good at toothy edges (due to low ha...

Re: Hap40 vs zdp189 vs k390

Get the HAP40, its tougher than ZDP by far, and since you already own a knife in K390, you won't be missing much in term of edge retention/aggression. Maybe the one thing that ZDP can have over K390 is its fine edge, but does that really matter to you? HAP40 is way more different, and its just a tad...

Re: Efficiency of edge types

A decently sharp serrated edge will out-slice any hair whittling plain edge knife. It's just physics at play. There's a reason why sharks, most reptiles and the extinct theropods had serrated teeth. They just cut better. That being said, for general edc tasks I switched to SE for a few months now an...

Re: A Spyderco "Throwing Pocket Knife".

But as everyone has said, it'll probably have to be a one in a million throw. I wouldn't expect to stop someone completely, but if you have a big knife sticking out your back it could momentarily. That's mall ninja mentality. Youngster cocky talk. It doesn't work that way irl I'm afraid. For your o...

Re: A Spyderco "Throwing Pocket Knife".

I'd much rather have someone attack me with pepper spray than a knife. Criminals won't attack you with a knife unless they want to murder you, they try to intimidate you with it instead. If someone wants to kill you, they won't be coming visibly or giving you any chance of fighting back. Why does a...

Re: Spyderco Province Photos

I had my eyes on this for awhile now, might get it if its available in some EU store, didn't check yet. What's the steel hardness of this beauty? I remember in folders 4v was around 63-65hrc.

Re: Paramilitary2 revisited

I would pick Rex 45 over 52100 any day of the week!! They're both low carbide steels, but the difference in attainable hardness is easily noticeable. I still prefer Cruwear over both these steels for that extra bite, adaptability to the kind of hair whittling edge you put on it (toothy, polished, if...

Unfortunately this year is probably not going to happen a lot of work needs to be done first in sure but next year would be nice Yea most likely, I'm just trying to hype myself :D I hope Spyderco goes with Shawn's desire for a nice, thin geometry, since people that will buy this will definitely be ...

Re: Just ordered some Nano Oil *cough snake oil cough*

Another user of the Victorinox oil here, very good oil for the price and safe if you use your knives for food prep... Since I tried it I don’t use any brand more... Haven't tried many. For some time now Victorinox (the maker of swiss army knives) multi tool oil. Does all I need for my folders. That...

Re: Real World Anectodal Incidents of Corrosion Resistance

S110V - Went fishing on the Texas coast. Was using my new PM2 in S110V to cut bait. This was night fishing. Got back to the room exhausted and reels, rods, and knives went without even a freshwater rinse. Checkout was that day and for the first and hopefully last time, I left something of value in ...
