@AUXOM I have 2 Wegner jrs. I never heard about fish sign. However, for people who might wonder why fish symbol is used as a Christan sign - here is an explanation ΙΧΘΥΣ (Ichthys) is an acronym[citation needed] for "Ίησοῦς Χριστός, Θεοῦ Υἱός, Σωτήρ", (Iēsous Christos, Theou Yios, Sōtēr), which trans...

Posting the Rc invites argument.

We would really need a mule in BG42 steel in order to compare BG42 with CTS B75P - a particle (sinter) version of BG42.

I think, Cliff understand a lot about locks since he tested many lock systems.

Could it be a Wegner Jr.? It has a lot of belly, very strong saber grind, ONE liner, G-10 handle, ATS-34 steel. Below, the first one from the left is a Wegner jr. The second one is a Centofante jr. with SecurLock system (double lock system), the third one is small Sebenza. Franco http://i301.photobu...

What I am wondering is why anyone thinks Brad is a dullard or a neophyte? :eek: :D I an sorry, no offense intended.

What makes you think that heat-treating the lockbar face costs more that creating a lockbar with a steel (possibly heat-treated) interface? :rolleyes: And what about the possibility of replacing the interface in case it wears out due to excessive use? About the lockbar face costs - it was just my g...

The use of Carbides and heat treating the titanium only covers the "problem" for a short time, adding stainless steel... solves it! Good call Spyderco... good call. Sounds as a nonsense to me. If you read Chris Reeve's forum you should find much more about HT of Titanium, extreme Rc hardness, etc. ...

Are the titanium lockbar faces on Spyderco models such as the Ti Military and Sage 2 heat treated for wear resistance? It was my question too. I never got an answer. My guess is no. It would move, guess, the prices towards Sebenza prise. But, I would rather pay more and have heat treated lockbar. F...

Wegner jr. is one of the best (if not the best) Spydercos ever produced. Its liner lock is a miracle itself - whatever I did it stays at the same position, I fully trust it. Here is a photo of Wegner jr. with two more evergreens - Centofante jr. (ATS-34 steel) and a small Sebenza (BG-42 steel) http:...

I picked up some mango passion fruit jam that I can't wait to try. This is a point I was missing! The venerable Manix2 with the strongest and most reliable lock is actually designed for cutting bread and puting a mango passion fruit jam on it! But, still, be careful.

As far as I can tell from my Manix 2, it is rock solid and shows no indication of that changing during my daily use (sometimes hard) or in the expected loads from a self defense application. I should point out that my knife is actually a factory second and it is still built solid. I even loosen all...
