Re: Best Pepper Spray for self-defense?

I agree it's a good option, consider the different trigger types too. The small pocket ones are usually a slide and press, with a few flip top and press options as well. If you ever have to spray it at someone or something, remember to move, if they don't stop immediately pretty good chance they're ...

Re: Reveal 4, What's your favorite release?

I quite like the cup. The one with the lc200n lil native backlock blade. Because it makes me wonder.... Does this mean a Lil native salt might be in our future?

Which models did you initially dislike but then came around?

Recently acquired a dodo. Pulled it out of the box, opened the blade, tried to close it....and kind of hated it. But decided to keep playing with it, and now I'm in between. I had the same experience with the sliverax and pm2. Pm2 I'm still in between, doesn't really do anything great for me. Sliver...

Re: Your TWO To Return In 2020

Phoenix, as originally was, or raffir noble (a brighter one than the chap has, maybe yellow or red tint) and a nice steel.
Any Ed Schempp design, which it seems a lot of people are coming to appreciate lately.

Tuff clip alternatives?

Picked up a Tuff recently, but it doesn't have a clip.

Does anyone know of an alternate clip or what size screws the tuff uses? The military clip pattern looks close, but I haven't been able to check yet.

I did email Spyderco but not optimistic on them having a clip laying around.

Re: Spyderco 2019 Reveal Volume 3 Per Knife Center

The stretch has a different edge shape than the pm2. The stretch's edge is straight until the last third or so when it becomes a fairly pronounced belly.

A pm2 edge is almost the other way, maybe an inch by the choil is straight, and the rest of your edge is curving into a slight belly.

Re: Let's take a look inside my Police 4

Hmmmm......with the police 4 lw coming out I wonder what would happen if you switched the blades (assuming the can be)

And if it is a result of a galvanic reaction what if the washers were replaced with nylatron?

Anyone from or moved to Alaska?

I've been kicking this idea of trying to move out there around. Maybe this isn't the best place to ask, but I like the community here so maybe someone has answers. If you're from or have moved there, what are the actual struggles? Regrets? Little annoyances that make life difficult? What makes you w...

Hap40 vs zdp189 vs k390

I'm considering picking up an endura in hap40, but already have a police in k390 and haven't tried zdp at all. So I ask: If you have or had both, is the endura too close to the police that you find them to essentially overlap? And how do the steels compare in use or in theory? (Meaning in theory one...

Power seats annoy me. I'm in a place where leaning the seat back and taking a nap is not out of the question. Now I have a car with power seats and it's push the button and......wait.... Time to go?
