Re: Switch Gamers

The Lynel's especially. I finally got the Guardians down. But, I always feel like I'm using underpowered gear and armor.

Re: Switch Gamers

I wish I could get my hands on a BOTW guidebook. I feel like I'm way underprepared for the kinds of enemies I'm facing now.

Re: Spyderco Solo?

Looks like I learned something new, too! I never realized Solo was an in house brand. It's almost like it was the first Byrd knives.

I always liked the looks of those Solo knives, but I never thought to pick one up until they were long gone. They look like they would carry well.

Re: Spyderco Solo?

Spyderco was a distributor for Solo knives, along with some G.Sakai and Moki models, if I remember correctly.

Re: Liner Steel Question

vivi,

I think if you use as fine of a grit as you can, something around 1500 to 2000, or even some steel wool, you should be able to remove the rust without changing the tolerances of the parts. Sometimes soaking in mineral oil will also help loosen any rust.

Re: Police 4 K390 LW is shipping to dealers

I wanted to like it too, but the way the choils were set up, I never felt like I could get a comfortable grip. I think if the one on the handle were more like the Endura, I'd be all over it. Oh man - I'm the complete opposite! I can't stand the Endura handle because the finger grooves fall right ac...

Re: Police 4 K390 LW is shipping to dealers

I wanted to like the Police LW but the stiffness of the backlock and lack of a boye dent left me wanting. I ended up selling mine. If it had the same backlock and dent as the Endura I'd have kept my VG-10 and been buying a K390. Hopefully the SSSXL will scratch my itch for a large FRN Seki blade. I...

Re: Wharny Manbug Coming

Teeth would help the Wharnie ManBug just like it does my Sheepsfoot ManBug. However, best to keep about 1/4” at the tip straight for ideal package opening (somewhere between SpyderEdge and ComboEdge). Even my Sheepsfoot SpyderEdge H-1 ManBug has a little bit of straight edge at the tip (a little bi...

Re: SE H1 vs SE LC200N

I'm getting the "dejavu all over again" vibe on this thread (to misquote the great Yogi Berra). I could swear this topic came up a few months ago. Yeah, it does seem pretty familiar. Regardless, I don't know that I saw serrated H1 perform much better in actual use. Better than PE H1, yes. Better th...

Re: Wharny Manbug Coming

I've been carrying one of those every day for about 2 weeks. I'm biased, but I'm pleased. sal Good to hear! I'll be picking one up as soon as the TiCN version hits the streets! Same here. I'm going to swap it in my Manbug Salt handle. A buddy of mine says I should call it a Yellowjacket :D .

A standard black Manix LW CTS-BD1N with DLC costs about $113.05 if you signed in, but $119 if not signed in.
Para 3 LW is also $113.05 signed-in, but $119 if not signed-in.
K390 Delica (out of stock) $109.73 signed-in, $115.50 else.

So, 5% off.
So 35% off total. ;)

Re: Crazy Good Deals Part 2!!

I discovered that if you create an account on nationalknives.com, you get an "unadvertised discount" on Spyderco knives. It might work with other brands as well, but..I don't really buy any other brands anymore. How much of a discount? I don't know the exact percentage, but the K390 Endela I was or...

Re: Spyderco Worker appreciation

Good find! A friend's Worker is what introduced me to the Spyderco brand. It looked like something out of a sci-fi novel compared the knives I owned at the time.


I've still got my fingers crossed that we'll see an FRN variant one of these days.

Not really. I had a steel ATR, and never found that handle particularly comfortable.

Spyderco Astute. Carries very slim, while having just a bit more blade than a Delica. Also, it's under $50.

Re: Has low supply or over demand killed your interest in a brand or model?

Same with me and GEC. I'm done even bothering to look for them. See a pattern I like, look everywhere, and it's all sold out. People complain about Spyderco's sprint runs, well at least they have regular production models. Everything GEC makes is a sprint.

Re: Teaching a rookie to sharpen serrated Spyderco on Tormek

What I don't get is how that knowledge seems to have been lost in such a short time. You can search back on this forum and see lots of people using and raving about serrations, and then a few years later this urban legend developed saying they can't slice and only rip and are impossible to sharpen....
