Re: Coated CBN > Coated Diamond ~ Please Expand!

Maybe a silly question (but who cares... ;) ): Is CBN the same as COATED CBN? Or to put it differently: The CBN rods or the sharpmaker are in fact "coated CBN", right? Yes we're talking about the same thing. When I say coated I'm speaking of a difference in the stone not the abrasive particles, coa...

Re: What Spyderco is in your pocket today??

https://i.imgur.com/gabU14l.jpg It appears your Endela needs a bit of a washing , bro. Today I carry the hopefully perfectly clean again Endela :D (Jazz, the stuff on the handle is just remains of dishwashing liquid, and the scratches on the blade are there to stay... ;) ) https://i.imgur.com/aiEHF...

Re: What Spyderco is in your pocket today??

My name’s Jack, I’m four and a bit years old and Bloke’s my Poppy. :) https://i.postimg.cc/wvRSpfL1/36413131-CFDC-4476-AFBE-D6-CAA44-DFAA1.jpg I like the Ladybug because it fits my hand very well with a four finger grip but I prefer bigger knives. One of my favourites is Poppy’s Advocate, but I’m s...

Re: Which steels did you carry today?

Very interesting to see the top 5 or 6 from week 1. I know H1 is popular, but I wouldn’t have guessed by such a large margin. I wonder if H1 benefits from the ‘backup knife’ factor, as Victorinox 1.4110 obviously does as well? I wouldn’t necessarily have picked CTS-XHP to be up there either. I like...

Thank you kindly folks-

My posts have been less frequent of late due to cherishing our little miracle 9 month old daughter.

Hard to type while dealing with nappies (Daipers as you would have it) :D
Probably the best reason for not being active on the forum! :)

Re: What’s with the humps?

I’m new to spyderco and have a delica an Endura and a police 4. I’ve noticed they all seem to have a reinforced tip, is there a reason they needed to do this on these models? I still love them but I think a military is next. Concerning Delica, Endura: As far as I know, older versions did not have t...

Re: Still wishing for a Chaparral XL / Endela "thin edition" / or something along that lines

So for me at least just one a bit larger, 2mm "mainstream" ffg model is missing in Spydercos lineup. What do you think? 2mm ffg is plenty imo. I would not choose the chaparral platform since it looses edge because of the choil. An all edge model like the caribbean with ~100mm edge length would be g...

Re: Still wishing for a Chaparral XL / Endela "thin edition" / or something along that lines

Wouldn't a Chaparral XL be basically a Sage? Wouldn't a Chaparral XL be basically a Sage? I think it would be a little more slender/elongated than a Sage. I had my Ti Chap out of the drawer today and was imagining it a little longer in the handle and a little longer in the blade when I had it in ha...

I'm interested, and still advocating for a PM2 Backlock with thinner stock and handles rather than thicker like the Manix2 Backlock. 2mm and linerless G10 would be awesome IMHO. Thin PM2 backlock?! Great idea!! :) (Though FRN would be the icing on the cake for me personally... or just a "thin editi...

HAP40 Stretch and McBee has been a go to combo for me lately!

Stumbled across this old axe head on the edge of a local marsh while I was walking my dogs.
Very cool!

But I am missing the great HAP40 Stretch in that pic!! :eek:
(Fortunately I have one myself to look at instead.. ;) )

Well, I joined just like 15 month ago and not in 2011... but I can assure you, it's still a great place to be (and, yes, certainly a "temptation temple"... :rolleyes: )

Re: Coated CBN > Coated Diamond ~ Please Expand!

A common complaint about diamond plates is that they leave too many deep scratches, affecting not only the edges ultimate polishing potential, but possibly the quality of the apex as well. Some people claim diamond plates produce a more ragged apex than bonded adhesives. Now I am a fan of diamond p...

You´re right, my friend.. :o
Though the lighting / flashlight exaggerated how dirty it actually is
The Endela just gets used a lot (as it should be :) )
