Re: How many knives do you typically carry?

Ummm, 5(Spyderco Military and Pacific, Emerson CQC-12, a Wilmont Knives K25, and a wee little 2 bladed fake ivory-handled knife that rides in my jeans watch pocket-- very sheeple friendly. I didn't count my Leatherman Crunch). I didn't pick the name "Blades"; it was given to me in 1994 by my Air For...

Re: Knifejoy Exclusive Para Military 2

The older I get, the less I like bright colors like this. That said, I’m still going to pick one up! I also hope for a future run with a DLC coated blade/black hardware. I'm the opposite. The older I get the more I want something besides black. :) I like the lime green but I know nothing about CPM-...

Re: Spyderedged Blades: A Total Mis-Understanding Maybe?

My first Spyderco was a fully serrated Endura. I carried it for 20+ years until I visited the "Holy Land" while I was vacationing in Denver. I bought a fully serrated Pacific Salt and retired my Endura. I've always carried a full serrated knife because sometimes you need the big teeth to bite big. :)

Whatever happened to the Tropen or Subvert?? Two releases I never saw anything about here besides LC with the Subvert.
I'm wondering about the Tropen also...

Re: The History of 3V, Cru-Wear, and Z-Tuff Steel

Cru-wear is one I like a lot. I have a Wilmont Knives K25 and it loves to cut and keep on cutting. I missed picking up a Spyderco Cru-Wear knife. :(

Re: Of all your Spyderco knives, which gives the best, smoothest cut?

My CPM-M4 Military. A few swipes on my ultrafine stone every month or so and it keeps slicing keenly. Great steel.

Re: Pulse on the Tropen?

This is the first polished G10 I've had and it is very smooth. Similar to polished carbon fiber on the Rubicon. The shape of the handle and the ample finger guard provided by the flipper tab, make it very secure once in sabre or reversed grip. A little more care must be taken when in transition to ...

Re: The Serpent's Fang in CTS-XHP a Keeper!

I didn't think I'd like the Hundred Pacer because of the handle shape but once I held it... I liked it! Seeing the comparison pictures makes me want it even more.
