Re: Grip discussion

My issue is if you don't like choils and sharpened blade for me is so far away from my hand(smock) as where if the is no finger choilthe s Blade has to be up to the pivot and grip on the pivot not behind. Otherwise choils are the best thing to come. I do only use the choil. I never feel like," hey ...

Re: Grip discussion

I can squeeze 4 on the Rhino but agree it’s a three finger knife, pinky wraps around behind pretty nice though making it a 3 1/2 grip I guess. Even after sanding the tail end of my pm2’s I feel cramped if I put my thumb on the ramp. I like the Amalgam, lots of room on that handle. These days I’m lo...

Re: Grip discussion

i pretty much always use the index choil if the knife has it. Do you do this with larger knives like the Manix too? I had a friend that EDC'd stuff like the Caly 3 or a Pacific Salt as his larger knife, and he's always reach for the choil. Even on big knives like my Police, Millie, etc. i do, howev...

Grip discussion

Something I've come across in a few threads now is folks talking about how the Rhino can be a four finger grip for them. In my mind I'm thinking, "just because you can, doesn't mean you should." Let's take a look at that knife. https://media.knivesandtools.com/Exact675x450/96207/spc210cfp$02-spyderc...

Chinook 4. Everybody knows it but I seem to be the only one who edc’s it.
That's been on my list for a while, but it always gets passed over for something else.

Szabo folder. Very interesting locking mechanism, and awesome lines.

This really is one of their best designs. The caly line has amazing ergonomics. I've tried all three sizes and the full sized Calypso is my favorite.

Re: Does anyone else wish for a standard scale color other than black?

I like black, I'm glad it's the standard. I'd enjoy seeing more OD green / foliage green though. FG scales and DLC blade is an awesome combo.

Re: What drives me batty

That's the joy of being picky as hell. No framelocks, liner locks, comp locks, folders with blades under 3.5", I try to avoid designs with thumb ramps.....that cuts out the majority of Spydercos pretty quick ;) So the Native Chief must be next on the to-buy list. What is it about the Police 4 that ...

Re: What's the one that got away?

C95 in foliage green.

I owned an original C95 and loved it, but ended up trading it for a large chopper. When I found out about the FG sprint they were sold out and going for $250+ and that's above my limit for a user.

I still keep an eye out for one.

I own neither but I've handled both. Smock does nothing for me visually or ergonomically. Don't see the appeal personally outside of the new take on the lock. Ikuchi is pretty cool. I wish it used a regular opening hole, but I like everything else about it. Might pick one up some day. What were you...

Reached for my Swick for some chores this morning, then decided to keep carrying it all day.

Re: Tips for UF bench stone?

They clean easily with bar keepers friend and a scouring pad.

My advice is to don't ever use this stone on a knife that has no ability to shave arm hair. UF stones are for rfining an already sharp edge, not getting them sharp in the first place.
