So I flew in to Denver...

..and had a few hours to kill and thought "wait a second, one of my favorite knife companies is around here!" After taking the wrong exit (I could have sworn I took 265 the first time), I eventually make it to the mothership :D Of course I decided I can't leave empty handed, so I had the very diffic...

the new line up is impressive. I was planning to try out the FRN manix 2 but the Des Horn knife looks amazing. I also think I might get a SS balance, dragonfly 2, and the pukko (puuko? pukoo? pukuko?)

Suicide, bullying, death penalty, drug overdose, destruction, etc are not problems. They are the last of a sequence of events set in motion by some problem, usually years in the past and related to bad attitude and lack of wisdom. I feel sorry for the people who are hurt by the mistakes of others. T...

Military with a new lock mechanism?

I remember a post by Sal about redesigning the military with a new lock, some version of the ball lock IIRC. This was at least a few years ago and I was wondering if this is still in the works or not. As much as I like the Millie, I'd love to see an update (but keep the nested liners and full flat g...

I am not sure I understand the OP but I interpret "trust" as trusting that the product is as advertised without issues.

Just the other day I was thinking about a G10 and Ti frame-lock flipper manix (old style) as my ideal heavy use knife. I just bought a kershaw skyline and really like the flipping feature. In fact, I recently sold my last spyderco knife* because I lost interest in the hole opener. No doubt it is the...

oh cool! I dont understand why swiss army knives tend to have the screwdriver next to the corkscrew. makes so much more sense to have it extend lengthwise rather than out the side.

I used to have a BK7 (a big version of companion) . Overkill for me so I sold it. This is what i remember: -thick wide blade -simple design, felt durable -handle was average. decent shape but no texture, could get slippery -good value so...its not a fancy knife and would probably benefit from wrappi...

well...how about a sharpening stone :p I have one of those blue and red two sided folding diamond sharpeners in my car utility bag. Takes little space and doesnt need oil or water and works fine for basic sharpening. I dont have a plan for repairing a seriously fubared knife. If I lose my sharpener,...

I have been using a military as my jeans knife for the following reasons:
-best weight to size ratio
-relatively thin
-open back means i can blow out the dust that accumulates. i had a bunch of lock backs before the millie and the dust was very annoying to me

I don't pay attention to the blade steel. In fact, I don't even pay attention to the blade. I just look at the tools and carry a separate, full sized knife (millie).

I have a victorinox spirit and swisstool. The spirit is excellent IMO.
