Re: Affordable fixed blade (AFK)

Spyderco still needs to find their home run model with fixed blade knives!!! This would be one that appeals to the masses. One you will find in hunting camps, outdoorsman backpacks, recreational camper camps, tackle boxes, RV's, around the home and at the job. Not a specialized small niche model. It...

Re: Cruwear micarta Bushcraft/Proficient

This happens to be my project and has been since the original "Bushcraft", That UK Ken asked us to make. Then the "Proficient", which was the result of Forumites asking for a more Modern version than Spalted Maple or G-10 with O1, but with Chris Claycomb's excellent handle design. So we made the Pr...

Re: Cruwear micarta Bushcraft/Proficient

I brief moment of pain and years of satisfaction is a small price to pay. I did just that with the Bushcraft and have never regretted it. I would like to see this as something other than another version of the proficient in micarta & cruwear. Wondering how the balance of the knife will change with a...

Re: I Like My HAP40 Delica - Seems to take a beating

Ditto... I'm recently new to HAP 40 and a long time user of Delica. HAP40 Delica easily rocks the VG10 Delica.

Re: Best torx wrench set

This question comes up from time to time. I have to say I really appreciate the knowledge and experience shared here. It was you guys that got me away from an inexpensive Husky that was capable of stripping heads to a super cool problem free set of Wiha. Thanks guys...

Re: What’s Your Favorite Underrated Sleeper Knife?

I've been thinking of the thread that asked about Spydercos that grew on you and those that faded. Think this is along the same lines. I want to give a shout out for a recent Spyderco awakening. I like fixed blades, and Spydercos are the ones I like most among those I have, which are BRKT, Casstrom,...

Re: Spyderco Face Mask

I like this idea, but prefer the lightweight polyester neck gaiter. It is much more versatile and can be used for so many other things than just Covid.

Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha .... I knew this was going to happen. I'm running two jobs right now and I am insanely busy throughout the day. I just ended my day and checked in here to see what's happening - a new Reveal and PM2 S45VN sightings!!!! Obviously I'd be way too late if I was still after one. I could fo...

Re: Folding Mule Team?

I have more blade steels in PM2 and Delica 4 than in Mule Team (I was late to the party). Seems a little backwards and not on the cutting edge (no pun intended); but, to a degree, the folding mule concept kinda of already exists...
