Re: What to do if someone tries to rob you with a knife?

Sometime back in the '90s, I remember speaking to a former prison guard who related how he had gotten stabbed on the street. I don't remember the city or the state where he had worked as a prison guard. He said that while he was walking on the sidewalk, another guy wearing a hoodie with his hands i...

BHQ is OK I have found better vendors and faster... allot faster. Sniffing and this thread stinks of fish. Nuff said.

Guerrilla influencers / promoters. I think that's what s/he is referring to.

Re: What to do if someone tries to rob you with a knife?

So I've never thought much about this before, to me a knife is a tool, but today someone got robbed in a crowded parking lot within a block of my house in broad daylight at knife point, as far as I know this type of thing has never happened recently in the small town where I live. It makes me wonde...

Re: a painful lesson relearned

I’ve had more trouble with UPS (pronounced oops) and fedex than usps. At work, fedex delivered 360’ of 5” threaded steel casing. About $300/10’ stick. 5 of the pieces had been abused by spearing the ends with a forklift and dragged so much the threaded ends were worn through the threads. We filed a...

Re: a painful lesson relearned *update*

As many of you may remember I have told any who will listen to not ship through USPS. Even if it's free it's not worth it I said. Packages marked as delivered and not delivered I said.... So I recently bought a Chief (I paid to send it UPS) arrived with out incident. Then I ordered a Urban LW and W...

Re: M4 Shaman Exclusive

Yeah, but didn't that Para2 pretty much sell out just as fast? What if you took your batch of knives and only put 100 on your site at a time. You could take 1200 knives and put 100 on each hour on the hour from 8am through 7pm. It would be more work but it may give more folks a chance at one. It di...

when things are limited, aren't they generally limited to 2 per shipping address?
Correct, 2 per household.

Re: Spyderco Shaman - Front Flipper?

I dunno man, I honestly don't see much of a difference. The thumb hole with various ways to open it seems just fine. A "flipper" is better suited for a flipper tab. But whatever floats your boat. If that's how you want to open it, more power to ya. Just doesn't seem very practical. Totally not prac...

If it's not a fixed blade, it's simply not a hard use knife.
This guy gets it.

Also, if it's not a 500 dollar slab of steel & titanium it's not a "hard use" folder.

You could do the same thing with many models. It's kind of awkward though.
Not so sure about that.

Here it is against a legit front flipper:

Spyderco Shaman - Front Flipper?

@sal

By design, or sheer coincidence, it appears the Shaman is a legitimate front flipper.

This is a very good thing:

Re: What Spyderco is in your pocket today??

So, I realized something: with the 4 knives that arrived in the mail today, I have a grand total of 8 knives in my pocket & bag.

BM 551-1702 (pocket)
BM 87 (belt)
BM 51 (bag)
Leatherman Charge (bag)

I think I have a problem.

Not in my pocket, in USPS boxes inbound to the office, but I'll have 2 x Paramiltary 2 in 20CV and 2 x Shaman in M4.

Before you ask, no I won't wear all 4 knives at the same time. 1 of each are going in storage.

Beauties. I'm a little worried about the very light colored G10 on the Paramiltary 2, and how it's going to discolor (especially when worn with jeans). I will most likely swap the blade out in a Micarta handled Paramiltary 2.

Correct. The PM2 was released last year, that's why it wasn't on the list.
Maybe it should've been, even as a reissue.

Good Evening Spydermen and Women, Attached is a comment I ran into on a Facebook group earlier today, normally I brush off a little trash talk... but he happened to be talking about my favorite model.
