His name is Bram Frank. He's one of Edgar Sulite's long term American students of lameco FMA.

I believe you meant that Bram was a student of Modern Arnis under Prof. Remy Presas.

Not a huge fan of SS myself. Just too heavy. For instance I see the Poliwog at 4.1 oz is going to weigh more than twice as much as a FRN Delica. For further point of comparison a Yojimbo with a G-10 handle weighs 3.6 oz. I may have to wait till it comes out in a lighter material (did someone say tit...

Hey Joe,

From past threads, I recall Sal saying Spyderco's compression lock knives are stronger than frame locks. My personal feeling is that frame locks are generally superior to (i.e. more reliable than) liner locks, which I no longer buy. Your mileage may vary.

You could always do what I did in the past, which is dremmel a regular endura trainer. Or as a more costly option, pick up a waived trainer from the Emerson line.

You're fortunate in California because there's definitive case law on this subject: In re Rosalio S. (1995) 35 Cal.App.4th 775. The Appeals Court held that the term "blade" refers to the sharpened portion only and that the length of a knife blade should be measured accordingly. Thanks for the case ...

Congrats to Sal and Spyderco on Blade Awards

Just read that Spyderco/Kershaw Spyker was named Collaboration of the Year at Blade Show, and that Byrd was named Best Buy.

Congrats to all.

I know a Sgt. at a Cal State campus near me who says his PD considers folding knives whose blades lock into place to be "fixed blades". I don't agree with him, but the D.A. just might, so make sure to ask your schools' PD prior to carrying even a folding knife with a blade length over 2.5 inches Ju...

I always chime in at this point to say "Sal, give us deep pocket clips!" :p (at least as an option.) Unless told to the contrary by someone in authority, I don't believe concealed carry laws have anything to do with clip styles to date.
