Re: Bear Grylls fined for killing and cooking frog.

His shows are all entertainment, with a dash of actual good advice, nothing more. People called him a liar when they found out he was spending nights in a hotel rather than the wilderness. Well, insurance was the cause of that. For someone from a military background I'm sure all that bear did was pa...

Re: Para 3 lightweight anticipation

I pre-ordered one. Last night I ordered a G10 version so I can have one of each, like my Manix 2s! :D

Re: My first impressions with a Spyderco

I second the manix 2! I love mine (G10 with s30v). The ball bearing lock is superb. You can flick the blade with your thumb (I can't seem to do the middle finger flick, yet!), pull the bearing lock and flick your wrist... And it's solid! The lightweight is a great knife too, but very weird to me (at...

Re: What video games are you guys and gals playing?

Currently running through the campaign of Red Dead Redemption 2- and there's just so much depth to the game, and so many fun (and funny) touches. There's so many Easter eggs to find and exploring to do- and that's without hunting, fishing, train robbing, horse stealing, cigarette card collecting, s...

Re: Unpublished, Unreleased Books, Songs, and other things: How is this possible?

I have tons of song ideas and even songs recorded, never published (or published for free, just instrumentals). It's not uncommon.

One day I'll actually finish some stuff... But toddlers don't allow you the time sometimes!

Re: Leaving computers/electronic devices on or turn them off?

Here is a related question: If you leave your computer on all the time, someone told me, then it becomes more vulnerable to hackers and viruses. Is that true or false, and that as long as you have good anti virus protection your machine will be okay? I use Microsofts protection... I don't have any ...

Re: My first Spyderco

My first was a Tenacious. It's a great, inexpensive knife that does everything you can ask and more. I've heard good things about the byrd raven 2 as well. A delica is only a little more than a tenacious however, and is obviously very popular. But if you have the funds I'd go Manix 2. Love mine (in ...

Re: Hello, why do you guys like Spyderco?

They look awesome and function better than they look. Seriously though, I started with a cheap milwaukee fastback. Then decided to get a Kershaw Tone from academy sports because it had assisted opening and a cool, blacked out tanto blade! Then I got a cryo and cryo 2. I still have and use them (I lo...

Re: My new Manix 2!

Glad you like it! The ergos are just great on this model. I personally prefered the LW even over the regular one (the LW feels pretty sturdy despite beeing linerless) I absolutely love it! So much I ordered a blue lightweight manix 2 today! So many knives so little time! You'll love the lw at least...

Re: My new Manix 2!

From what I can tell it is minor. I've checked torque on all the scale screws of my Tenacious and Resilience, and they're all snug. It doesn't hinder function in any way so it's not a big deal.

My new Manix 2!

Hey guys! Got my manix yesterday. Just a little review... I love it! It feels great, weight is good, lock is awesome, and it's just a beautifully built knife. Comparing to my tenacious and resilience, it feels a little smoother and more attention was paid to fit and finish. Every screw on the manix ...

Re: First real spyderco for sons 18th B-day ???

Gotta say, my first Spyderco was a Tenacious. I'm carrying it now! I love it. I also have my new Manix 2 on me, and it is superb. I would say go with a Manix. I have it in G10, but I think I'm about to pull the trigger on a blue lightweight!

Re: What video games are you guys and gals playing?

I play mainly on pc, but I do have 2 Xbox 360s, an OG Xbox, 2 Playstation 2s, a wii... I think that's it. Normally play assetto corsa and elite dangerous, but fire up the 360 to play gta 5 and forza horizon (and a few others) from time to time. Hard to play much though with a toddler, job, school......

Re: Leaving computers/electronic devices on or turn them off?

Just leave them on. I have left all my computers on all the time and I've had very little failures. A few fans, had a power supply go poof, and that's about it. Never had a hard drive fail. My computer is pushing 10 years old I believe, maybe a little older. I've upgraded the graphics card once, rep...

Awesome! I've been married 3 years, with my wife for 18, and we didn't want to have kids. 2 years ago we decided it was now or never, and in 3 weeks we were expecting! My wife also has pcos and was told she would probably never get pregnant. Now we have a healthy, happy, cantankerous 2 year old litt...
