Re: Can we (civilly) discuss fixed blade prices?

The Bow River shows that it's possible for them to make a budget fixed blade knife in China. And the Chinese made Tenacious is or will be available in s35vn. So the Chinese factories are definitely getting better at working with steels other than 8cr. I don't know if they're made in the same factory...

Re: I need some pen suggestions

I like Karas Kustoms. Those are the only pens I carry anymore. Their clips are very overbuilt, especially on the Ink model, which was a major selling point for me. If you sign up for their e-mail notifications, they occasionally have grab bag sales where you can get pens with random mismatched color...

Re: Spyderco Viking Neck Knife?

I had to Google it as well. Beautiful, yet simple, and functional knives. The idea behind them seems to fit well with Spyderco. I'd like to see what their version would be like.

Re: Commemorative Knife Idea...

Since we should all have knives that been designed by the other 2/3 of the forum team, I'd rather see Kristi design a knife instead of choosing colors and materials. I'm sure she'd come up with something amazing.

Re: Best blade thickness for a small fixed blade?

Personally, I'd like something just a little thinner, but 2.5mm isn't bad. Also, it's your design so you probably have a really good idea what thickness is best for this particular knife. 2.5mm certainly isn't too thick to keep me from buying a well designed slicer, at any rate.

Re: D'Allara Issues.

It does get easier as it breaks in. Also, I've heard that some people have had luck beveling the scales around the ball to get a little more purchase on it.

Re: Power Lock

The power lock is quite strong. I think there was a Cold Steel video testing the lock on the Tatanka against their Voyager XL or something. It's been a while, but if I remember correctly, both blades broke before either lock failed. Impressive engineering by both companies.

Re: SmallFly 2!

I think they'll sell quite a few of these. It's right at an overlooked price point for a bali. Right now there's cheap sub $50 bali's that are just dangerous toys, a few acceptable models around $100, like the Bradley Kimura and Kershaw Lucha, and higher end models like the Benchmades that run from ...

Re: Anybody still use CASH?

I live in a very rural area and work in retail. I'd guess about a third of the transactions I see are in cash. In fact, the local liquor store quit taking cards several years ago due to the fees. It's pretty humorous to watch people that aren't from the area trying to pay by waving their phones at r...

Re: What’s Your Favorite Underrated Sleeper Knife?

I'd have to go with the D'Allara 3. It had the potential to be a very popular model. I believe the cost of G10 models out of Seki City killed it before many people got the opportunity to try out such an amazing design.

REALLY hoping the do this with the new LC200n SWICK. JUST SAYIN! :D :spyder:
I like that idea, but if they did something like this with a Swick, a coffee mug would be cool. Or a beer mug. Anything where you'd usually have a handle, really.

Re: NFL Season: 2020-2021

Things might not have been Landry's fault, but I don't think he would've taken the huge gamble that Jimmy Johnson did by trading Herschel Walker. Luckily for Jimmy and the Cowboys, that trade paid off and really turned things around for them in hurry.

Re: Your favorite handle shape

The D'Allara 3. I wish there would've been more interest in an FRN version or that I would've been able to get an earlier version with FRN. But it still fits just about perfect in my hand even with the flat slabs of G10.

Re: D’allara 3 plunger swap?

I just looked at my D'Allara 3 and Q Ball side by side. I hadn't even realized the plungers were made of different materials. Just looking at them and not measuring, they look to be about the same diameter. The height of the plunger head is about twice as high on the Q Ball's metal plunger as the D'...
