Re: Dating Myself...

I recall there being a plain edge version too. Want to say I saw them in an old A.G. Russell catalog.

Re: Camping Craze

Right now we are still car camping mostly. Both of us backpacked & our family was active in Scouting. Still as I've gotten older creature comforts are nice. We've talked about getting a small camper (around 16' or so) when we get close to retirement.

Re: Lightest Weight Spydercos...?

I forced my self to not carry more than I could fit in my 45L backpack, and that's really not a lot when you have to prepare for sub zero / sub 32F conditions. When it was time to select a knife, I chose the Victorinox Cadet. That was a very mentally challenging decision, but with what I could pred...

One of the best James Bond, but I liked him in other movies better - The Man who would be King & The Name of the Rose

Re: Knife and Car

If you could have only one "high performance" Spyderco knife and one "high performance" vehicle, which knife and vehicle would you choose. A 1978 240Z certainly wouldn't be a bad choice either. The iconic design lines were used by a few automakers, but here in the States (and probably everywhere el...

Re: Anyone have any experience with Dozier D2?

I have owned 3 Bob Dozier knives, and still have 1. The 1 I still have is the Agent Model. I occasionally carried it while in the Army so there is sentimental value to it. Originally it had beautiful smooth Ivory Micarta scales, but I was a dumbass and had them roughed up for a better grip. Didn't h...

Re: Chaparral Lightweight

My Chaparral LW is one of my favorite work EDCs. The thin blade is super sharp, and the wireclip & light weight makes it disappear in my pocket.

I've thought about getting the Raffir Noble version just because I like how it looks. Just haven't yet because there are other knives on my want list.

Re: Spyderco's Designated "Beaters"

Yeah I would be hesitant to use any Spyderco model with a ZDP-189 blade as a "user-beater" because of the properties of that steel. There is a big trade off when you go with a steel that has that high of a Rockwell rating. Albeit there are a lot of jobs you could do with a ZDP-189 blade>> anyone in...

Re: Spyderco's Designated "Beaters"

Now I find that really interesting especially since Spyderco quit making any serrated knives in ZDP-189. I had heard that the teeth chipped really easy on ZDP-189 blades ( so I heard anyway). And you using a full SE Delica model at that with ZDP189? It just goes to show that what works well in PE d...

Re: Major Dilemma!

Biggest question to ask is if you take the job would you be able to go back to your old job if you didn't like it? I'm in a similar situation. I currently work for a small hospital in admissions/registrations for their busy diagnostic center. The manager of the center actually pushed for them to hir...

Re: Spyderco's Designated "Beaters"

My beater is a fully serrated ZDP-189 Delica. I used it hard while working at a rural urgent care clinic. Opened boxes of medical supplies, popped seals on x-ray fluid, even used it to saw through wet-to-dry cast material to help shape it. Doesn't see as much use at my current job. Some of the serra...

Re: Wildland Firefighters Knife

I've got a custom Barry Dawson knife that has a U shaped notch on it that he said could be used to break barbed wire. Put the barbed wire in the notch, then torque the wire till it broke. Never tested it myself.

Re: EDC vs WEDC

My Work EDC rotates between my Spyderco Rhino & Chaparral LW, sometimes a Benchmade Bugout. I work in Admissions & Registration for a Hospital. My work EDC mostly gets used to open boxes & envelopes. We have a "No-Weapons" policy, so I have to keep that in mind in what I carry. Carrying my Matriarch...

Re: Li'l Temperance 3: A (not so) li'l review

I really like the Lil'Temp design, but I'd love to see an FRN version at a lower price. The Lil'Temp is already a wide design taking up pocket real estate. A FRN version would at least reduce the weight a bit. Though I think nested liners would be a good idea for weight balance - don't want it too b...
