Re: Damasteel UK Penknife UKPK - HANDLE OPTIONS final poll

Thanks for that. I am doing my best, but this is taking up a fair amount of my head-space and time, much more than I expected. There definitely is no pleasing everyone, but the displeased make the most noise, and that is all I am getting at the moment, so your compliment means more than you realise...

Re: Endela or Manix 2?

Doc, that´s a REALLY tough question... and funny, I thought just the other day that in my rather small current collection my Endela is the closest "competitor" to my Manix 2 LW.. They are also very close in most specs (see also pic below [Keep in mind: MY Endelas blade is a tad shortened since I had...

Re: New Member from Austria

Well Gernot, maybe Salzburg is too much tourist hot spot ... :D Besides different stores in Vienna I know for example Linz (Pizzini) or Graz (Scala) and even in Tulln you can buy Spydies, but don't compare the prices! Thanks a lot Peter, that´s great info! :) Linz is not too far away actually, and ...

Thats a great photo.

Thanks! :)

I liked the many shades of green and blue (including the Manix) in that scene and that moment.
Just had to try if they could be captured in a photo.

Re: Salt 2 LW Awesomeness

Thats great, I am looking forward to learning something new, gives me an excuse for more SE knives in the future! As said: I am sure you´ll find sharpening SE (especially H1) easy with the Sharpmaker. And getting more into SE knives is a great thing on the one hand (cause imho they just perform bet...

Re: Paramilitary 2 Salt ?

If I may extrapolate the equivalence from the Manix 2. Not sure how valid this is, but for science. - G10 - 121g - LW - 82g That's 32% difference. So, for a PM2, - G10 - 109g - LW - 74g or 2.6oz For a knife the size of a PM2, that would be pretty cool. ...... Another way to extrapolate this would b...

Re: Salt 2 LW Awesomeness

Hey Red, I think you will be very pleased with the Salt 2 SE. It is what I carry daily. There are plenty of threads about sharpening SE. Very easy with a Sharpmaker. True.

Re: New Member from Austria

I've always kind of been curious as to where you guys get your Spyderco knives at in Europe or anywhere else for that matter? Joe, Buying standard models here in local Austrian stores is no problem, especially in big cities. Of course they are overpriced, but as Austria is a rich country they are a...

Thats the coolest thing about it. I thrash it at work and a few swipes on the steel or the ceramic rods and she is good to go!

Yes, that´s cool for sure... ;)

But as far as I know H1 in SE is even another kind of cool in that it stays sharp a lot longer than in PE ...

They do. The fit isn't quite as snug but they work fine. They come in a variety of widths though, so you need to order the correct size.
Thanks much, Vivi!

Just found one for $91....😬 Get one! :) H1 in SE is amazing. Don´t take it from me (I am really not a steel- or sharpening expert, but still found it to be amazing too), but Sal said something along the lines once that nothing they tested is better in edge holding than H1 in SE (everyone: Please co...

Re: Salt 2 LW Awesomeness

I am a boat mechanic in a saltwater environment and I put my edc knives through alot. Over the last few years, I have completely gravitated to Spyderco’s mainly for the blade shapes and durability. I started carrying the Salt 2 LW for work and I absolutely love it. Its a worker for sure. It makes q...

Re: POLL: What serrated model would you prefer: FFG Endura SE (liners, VG10) or FFG Pac Salt 2 SE (no liners, LC200N)?

This is tough. Both steels are favorites of mine and I strongly prefer liners... But, I'd have to choose the FFG LC200N Pac Salt. I really enjoy LC200N. I´d perhaps be equally fine with both versions, but as of now I´d prefer the Endura 4 in VG 10 to come in ffg SE. Just for the reason, that I pers...

I had a similar experience as the OP. The cutting performance of my Paramilitary 2 FFG SE blew me away. I liked hollow ground SE, but FFG elevated my appreciation for SE to a whole new level.
OP here ;), glad you made the same experience!
Thanks for voting!
