Re: Spyderco's "Iconic Steel"?

To be entirely fair, I think that this is a question that has to be answered historically. In the beginning, there was GIN1. IIRC, this was the steel that built the empire that we know today. I had a GIN1 first generation Delica once upon a time (back in 7th grade, best Christmas present ever!), but...

Re-Educating a Long-Time Knife Knut

I've been lurking about a bit lately and trying to figure out what the latest and greatest in the world of steel really is, but it seems my metallurgy is a bit behind the times since I left. When I left the forum, the big four favorite steels were CPM-S30V, VG-10, H-1, and ZDP-189; S90V was in its i...

Re: Help sharpening dragonfly 2 zdp 189

IMHO, sharpening a dull ZDP-189 blade is an exercise in masochism, so the best advice I can give is to not let it get dull. Sure, it will hold it's edge for a good while longer than most steels, but even when I carried a ZDP Delica and used it on a daily basis, I found it smartest to give it an ever...

Re: Lava for dress pants???

Hi, I am new here and a dress designer student in Sydney, Australia. I understood the dress pants and fashion but why there are knives photo? Picture this, if you will, as a highly practical form of "accessorizing" :D Welcome to the forums; hope we can give you a chance to learn about our own style.

Re: So I did some walking... and thinking...

Thanks for the fine photos and well-crafted contemplative post. (although you threw me with the "30 minute drive to Golden") Beautiful area, especially when outside the lottery permit season. When the hordes are tramping, one can find plenty of solitude nearby, e.g Langley, Russell etc. Win-win, wi...

Re: So I did some walking... and thinking...

Welcome back! Great pictures--I have always wanted to visit the Sierrra. Roughly where did your route go? Started from Whitney Portal and hiked up to camp at Lone Pine Lake the first day. Next day we pushed up to Whitney Trail Camp (should be renamed "Camp WagBag"), and the stretch between Outpost ...

Re: Five day off-trail backpacking trip in the Wind Rivers

Thanks all. Welcome back, uhiforgot! We used USGS 7.5 minute topos and a Garmin GPS loaded with topos and a track that I created prior to the trip on GoogleEarth. However, the GPS wasn't really necessary (although it was useful at times), because I had studied the area a fair amount in GoogleEarth ...

Re: Five day off-trail backpacking trip in the Wind Rivers

This is absolutely GORGEOUS! Haven't done much off-trail before, but if I'm ever in this neighborhood I'll see about retracing your steps. Which maps did you use? USGS? Tom Harrison?

Re: So I did some walking... and thinking...

Thanks to all others for the positive vibes and thoughts. I've evolved quite a bit in the time I've been gone, and hopefully able to bring a bit more of the positivity that this place is accustomed to along with a new maturity (but not without the occasional shenanigans).

Great story, thanks for sharing. Looking forward to your future contributions.

So I did some walking... and thinking...

So the miles were passing under my feet in a somewhat agonizing manner. The scenery was amazing, but it didn't ease the fact that the air was thin and I needed food. So my mind started to wander, but only enough to not forget to keep my feet on the path. Why had I come here? Well, that seemed obviou...

Yep, it’s that time again; time for another one of my mentally masochistic contests! But remember that as always 1) there are rules, and 2) I am going to make you think. This contest will not be as mathematically complex as the last one, but you'll need to stay tuned-in if you want to win! HERE'S TH...
