Using a flat object as a backer, such as a small piece of wood, start with 320 grit wet dry. If that doesn't quite eat through the paint, drop down to 220 grit. Bring it up to about 400 grit, being sure to keep your polish lines straight and going completely from end to end without lifting off in th...

From my experience, FFG is better in every way than the flat saber grind. The saber is, of course, stronger when it comes to prying and such--but why would you do that with a high performance folder? That would be analogous to attempting to use a Cadillac Escalade for mudding; you can , but...why? T...

Welcome to Spydieville, Mr. Viking! You'll love it here, but Chuck's warning about your wallet is very real. :D It is heed-worthy advice.

I don't mean to de-rail the thread :D , but the Cool Mint Chocolate is my favorite Clif Bar so far. You know, I'm thinking Nutella and banana would be pretty awesome. Perhaps peanut butter on one side, bananas in the middle, and Nutella on the other side...yes, that would be really nice. Geeze, I'm ...

Peanut butter and banana is vastly superior to straight-up PB&J. I have much personally-gathered anecdotal evidence with which to prove this. The texture of the banana nicely compliments that of the peanut butter, as opposed to the more liquid consistency of most jellies. In addition to that, the to...

Must not have been eating enough peanut butter and jelly. Gotta try Nutella! It's this amazing blend of chocolate and peanut butter--sort of. It's the bomb on a bagel. Back on topic: Peanut butter and banana is darn good, as is the classic PB&J. I really think that the kind of peanut butter which h...

I gotta vote for the Lum Tanto. Okay, so it's not the most useful Spydie ever. So what? It's possibly the coolest-looking tanto folder ever. Plus, what better way to remember the great Bob Lum than with one of his rarer Spyderco collaberaion knives?

Ah yes, very nice. My very first Spydie was a saber-ground ZDP Endura. I had Tom Krein FFG it, and I completely love it. In fact, it's in my pocket right this second. I am very happy to see them coming FFG'd from the factory now. By the way, did you get a mic'd thickness measurement behind the edge ...

For what it's worth, H-1 contains 0.1% carbon, so the nitrogen doesn't totally replace it.

Okay, since the discussion has been all tied up and finished, I just want to say that y'all finished it very civilly. Very well done. I'm honestly impressed that a thread like this was cooled off with self-moderation. :)

Geeze...I've been away from here for far too long!

Nice! I would get the same kind of looks using a CE Millie. I'm known around these parts for being a little Spyder-crazy, so they just sort of chuckled, rolled their eyes, and went on . :D

Yep. This forum has the best people of any forum I'm ever been on.

Heck, Sal himself even replied to my very first thread here. A dude by the name of yablanowitz was a massive help, answering my truckload of questions about how thin to have Tom Krein regrind my ZDP Endura. Yep. Best forum ever. :)

Nice collection, Doc. The only kubotan I have is identical to the one in picture #1, furthest to the right. I used to carry it every day, but it got bumped in favor of a silver Surefire E1B.
