Re: Family friendly jokes

"turtle"... "my shell" - ?! ;) Ah, hahaha! Thanks, Gernot! :cool: If I ever visit the US I’ll shout you a trip too. I reckon an interpreter will likely come in handy, ay?

Re: Quick question: Upcoming K390 Endura family: Sprint runs or regular production?

The plan is for a sprint series. I'd like to do all of the models in the "Endura family". I'd be intrested in what additional blade configs you wight also like? sal I'd like to see the Delica and Dragonfly Wharncliffes in K390 too. The HAP40 Jazzlica is one of my most used work knives. A K390 versi...

Re: Sharpmaker?

It's hard to get full contact on the flats. I checked yesterday on the flats only a small portion is in contact with the blade. This means also that you have unsharpened spots. Maybe with more strokes you can equal that out. Ric, I´m not at home where my sharpmaker is at the moment, so I can´t chec...

Re: A plea to Sal and Alistair

No to the liner lock.They are average at best especially with free swinging blades. Unless you use a blunt or average sharpening on your knife, let's keep hands and fingers out of the blade path. The compression is fine.The CQI changes were made for the compression lock, so I can't see them changin...

What's wrong with the scales they're using?

Nothing "wrong" with the scales at all. Just not solid rosewood.

The Endela handle isn't bad but it could perhaps be slightly better for more people. Call it the sonor-ela while you're at it :D

Sonor-ela.. If ever available I´ll certainly get one (but just in SE ! ;) ) and compare it to the regular Endela! :)

Re: A plea to Sal and Alistair

When thinking about that proposal, one has to keep in mind: On a Kapara (other than on many other Spydies) a (shorter) 3.25 " blade would still mean over 3 " (3.10" I guess) of actual cutting edge, while still offering a real finger choil... that´s still a tad more than a PM2 offers, but a "Lil Kapa...

Re: Sun/Moon Chappy

I am still waiting for a Chap I want. I heard rumors of a bronze version and a sheep horn version. Both sound awesome. I am also interested in a stabilized wood version. Same for me. No scale material that I love has surfaced. I'm sure it's just a matter of time. Burlap micarta, stabilized wood, ho...

What you mean exactly? The one post I I failed to make clear what I wanted to say due to English not being my Native tongue?

Re: Sharpmaker?

I've been learning to use the Sharpmaker, and I noticed that the knife seems sharper if I just use the edge of the stones, and not the flat sides. Anyone else notice this? I start with the edge of the brown stones, then do the flat side, then the same for the white stones. However, to me, the blade...

Re: Endela-thread

I respectfully disagree. The proposed handle is completely neutral and will fit everyone, while still preventing the rolling issue. It is very close to the Caribbean's handle, which I find to be almost perfect. I see no reason to make multiple finger gooves, when the same can be achieved by a gentl...

Re: Endela-thread

Sonorum's handle is the fix that the Endelica family needs to be truly great! Someone should take note. I persnally still think Sal mellowed out the "point" enough already from Endura to Endela.. but admittedly, I don´t have any issue with both the Endura and the Endela handle, love them both. But ...

A bloke turns up uninvited to a fancy dress party, butt naked, piggy backing an equally naked woman. The host is both amused and curious and asks, “What you two dressed as?” Ole mate replies, “I’m a turtle and that’s Michelle”. :) Definitely did not get that one on the first read.
