Re: Repairing bent wire clips

Thanks. I will need to do this myself sometime again and this will help. Last time it took two pair of pliers and some strong language.

Re: Forum knife 2020 - model poll

Shaman is my first choice, a wharncliffe on any locking knife would be second.

Re: Para3 LW Black DLC on Amazon?

I don’t buy knives on Amazon anymore because their market is overrun with fraud and fakes. I have bought genuine Spydies on there in the past and if you get a fake you should be able to return it. Instead of the hassle I would buy from a reputable online shop. I have had good experiences with several.

Re: Smock owners

I guess you’re referring to the hollow grind, so I will address that. I prefer (in the abstract) a FFG blade but except for food prep I find the real world difference negligible. The deployment, and especially the lock are amazing. This is one of a few flippers I own but it’s much easier to deploy t...

Re: Wharncliffe Delica interest

I like Sheepsfoot and Wharncliffe blades very much. The Delica doesn’t move the needle much for me. I think the Wharncliffe Endura looks like a great knife for working with rope.

You would prefer a Button Compression Lock on Sage? To an integral?

sal
My very favorite lock (kind of like picking a favorite child, very difficult) is the button comp lock on my Smock. I would love to see a Sage with either the button comp lock or a CBBL like the one on the Manix.

Re: How many knives do you typically carry?

I always have 2. Roadie on my keychain and a folder right front pocket. Other keychain (2nd car) has a Leatherman mini tool on it. Chores around the house it’s the folder and a Leatherman either an old style Wave or a Skeletool with the upgraded blade steel.

Re: H-1 is subpar???

I’m going to commit sacrilege here and suggest another maker. David Boye, the inventor of the Boye dent used on so many Spyderco knives makes folders in a cast dendritic Cobalt alloy. The knives have titanium marlin spikes and are small (3 inch blade), backlocks and have great edge retention. Cobalt...

Thanks and I’m in! Very kind of you. I couldn’t make it to the sale this year but I can confirm it’s ability to destroy a budget! So many cool knives and too little moneys.

Amen! I have often in life had an insight that was brilliant, after I’d been doing something the hard way for years. Be interested in Sal’s answer to this.

Re: COFFEE: Who Drinks The REAL Stuff? Gourmet Beans too?

I drink it black. The way God intended. I have been known to use Irish whiskey or Rum as a sweetener but day in and day out two cups every morning, black. I have tried French Press, drip, percolator, cold brew, Moka pot and cheap and fancy pour over setups. It’s pour over for me, preferably with est...
