Re: Do I need a Chaparral LW?

I don't know if you need a Chaparral LW; but I do know I need a Chaparral CF!!!

I'm certain this didn't help any!

Re: 25

Definitely an impressive collection you have there! I seem to be caught up in the “different steel” fascination myself. I think it’s so neat to have a bunch of different steels in my knives! I only have 17 different steels, and I doubt I’ll ever be able to really test them all out extensively, but ...

Re: The tastes they are a-changin’

All those I was looking to part with are gone. Bravos and Gunnys and an ultra eye appealing Nomad.

Re: Do you keep your Spyderco boxes?

Will always be "cycling" thru my material things and like to have the original packaging on hand when I decide to let them go.

Re: The tastes they are a-changin’

I'm glad to find others are going thru similar sentiments & actions. I've said bye to the Manix, bye to Native 5's, no more PM2 except 1 but feel I'll be "reductioning" them in the not too distant future, bye to Mini Grips, and bye to a few Bark Rivers. Me, fixed blades first, then folders. Always s...

FMS got the better of me!!

Just gave in to my "Fear of Missing Something" and ordered one of the remaining Spyderco Bushcraft knives that have recently been discontinued. YAY for me! :D BOO for my bank account! :mad: And per plan, the Caribbean was supposed to be my first knife of 2019. :cool: I've had black handle/brass hard...

Re: Lupe: Asking for advice / recommendations please

Wartstein, Went back and forth between the B&L and the Belomo. I'll give a thumbs up for the BelOMO 10x Triplet 21mm. Now have one. The last link I posted is a good/informative read. I can see my knife edges well enough to know what is going on. This is probably all I'm going to need. (Was particula...

Thanks for the pic ... would like to see more of this from people who have them and use them ... really helps to make it tangible.

Re: Lupe: Asking for advice / recommendations please

Always looking for ways to upgrade my tools and skills. So far this year I have yet to purchase a knife and have invested in a set of Wiha precision torx screwdrivers to replace my Home Depot Husky torx multi driver and have been looking to add a loupe to the mix as well. Was hoping Santa was going ...

Re: POLL: Possible new double blade folder: Would you like to see another version featuring a saw?

I voted "YES" - HOWEVER, I would like to see the saw with a little less aggressive tooth pattern than the wood saw blade you find on current offerings of knives and multi tools and folder saws. BONE SAW TOOTH to be precise - and I think the less aggressive tooth saw is more universal in what it can ...

Wow..!!! Figured it would be around for a couple of days at the least - 7 minutes 16 seconds. OMG, that's about 2 of them every second. Holy c--p!

Re: Hard truths and observations

Getting back to the #1 post and having spent some hours shopping online and experiencing some of the price increase that is occurring for 2019 got me wondering how some people are what appears to me to be irrationally over sensitive to small price increases and being rather arbitrary with their pric...

Re: POLL: More DLC low chromium steels?

Pelagic, I'm surprised that it is predominately an equal split of interest/disinterest. I prefer to read comments and hear reasons/preferences than to select among a few prescribed choices. Often it isn't just one overriding thing but multiple things that compound. I was hoping to get more insight o...

This will also open the door to more interesting delica exclusives and sprints than Zome, Hap 40, and V-toku2.
