Re: Pacific Salt in LC200N?

Last I heard Sal talking about it, he said it would use the Endura 3 handle. Though with how long its been and the Salt 2 using the D4 handle, that could have changed.

I'd like to hear news on it either way!

Re: Efficiency of edge types

Sharp SE generally require less force than sharp PE if we're talking factory angles. They come ground much thinner.

Re: Efficiency of edge types

Depends on what you're doing. I'd rather cut rope with a serrated knife but I'll pick a plain edge to mince garlic.

Re: Szabo Folder Review (Picture Heavy)

They get a lot easier to open over time. Cycle the action a few hundred times and keep the pivot oiled. It's a pretty complex pivot, seems to take a bit more oil than more basic knives. Do you find it constantly needs oil or just during the initial break in period? I’ve got a few knives that seem t...

Last night of work. Time for a week off, this combo gets a break. New EDC tomorrow
Those Dexter Russel paring knives have been in every kitchen I've worked in. Brings back memories.

Re: Mantra 3 vs Sliverax which one to get?

If I were to buy one of these two, I'd definitely get the Sliverax. I thought the action was great for a flipper, and the ergonomics for me are a world better than the Mantra.

If you're a fan of the Delica / Mantra handle, it'd be a closer battle, but for me the choice is easy.

Re: It's been 40 days...

Maybe you found your true grail/ soul mate/ ideal tool and you don’t need to buy any more. It's funny how people chase that dragon, but once you catch it, it takes so much of the fun out of the hobby. Darn Pacific Salt :D My last purchase was a few months ago. Backup SE blacked out Pacific :rolleyes:

Re: Where is my Bow River ?

Was gonna order one, but I have a road trip planned next month that's taking me by one of my favorite knife shops, so I'll pick one or two up then.

Wonder what else I'll come away with?

Re: How about a titanium compression frame lock?

Unlike the switch from liner to frame lock, where you (in theory) get a lock that works harder when you grip harder, the switch to a frame comp lock doesn't get you anything except more difficult machining. In fact, you may just be making the lock worse, because you can't pinch the lock with your i...

Re: Szabo Folder Review (Picture Heavy)

I don’t really consider index choils, index choils. For me they are middle finger choils. By that I mean I use them to rest the tip of my middle finger in while pinching the blade itself between my index and thumb for very fine work or slitting tape to open a fragile package. That’s why I actually ...

Yeah, that's confusing me too. Again I'm probably the biggest fan of larger folders that posts here, but I can quote a post of mine I made this summer where I said "Pretty much any EDC task can be accomplished with a 3" blade" Preferences are just that. I've owned a Spin since the month they release...
