Razorsharp asked? Earlier in this thread Sal wrote this. Your answers should be there. Carpenters are the CTS steels. Carpenter CTS steels : http://www.carpentertechnology.com/whatsnew.aspx?id=3684 Maybe you can read more, argue less, and be a bit slower to rebuke others. Just a thought. Regards, J...

I personally think that anything can be used for SD if one has the knowledge or the motivation to use it as such. A fork, a glass bottle, a stick, frying pan and many more objects as these could possibly increase one's chances to defend himself in a bad situation. Yet, it only increases one's chance...

Hi Vassili. We're not likely to switch "all production" to any one steel. I like the different flavors available. We have 5 or 6 more Carpenter steels to "play with". We are also loyal to Crucible. They make excellent product and they've always been good to work with. sal Can you please name a coup...

When nozh stated it's the best steel, it only means best for him, or from his personal experience. Stating it, even if it's not a well known fact, should not be followed by the load of doubting posts, and people claiming they want a full report regarding the tests which were executed... I personally...

Gee, so much nut-cracking just coz a guy said he loves this steel, and that he has foundations to do so. (his test) I think that unless any of you have tested the new Carpenters steel, and have any information that will add to the knowledge we already have of the steel, you should just READ the thre...

I really think that with introducing Craig as Bond, they changed the whole game up. The old Bond used to kill an army, blow up a factory and come out without a scratch; even the hairstyle stayed there. Meanwhile, the new Bond gets down and dirty. He gets hurt, he makes mistakes, and is more human th...

+1 for the H-1!
I'd love to see an H-1 EDC fixed blade. Something along the lines of a Swick or rather a StreetBeat would be AWESOME!!
A heavy use H-1 folder would be great too. An H-1 ParaMilitary would be great, especially in a 4mm stock.
H-1 Lava would be cute, also.

I created some scales from CF for my lava. Then used epoxy to stick it on top of the SS handle. Looks pretty nice. Yet the job was nothing fancy, just a quicky cuz I hated the SS handle.

Topic: Liner Lock Advantages?
Replies: 9
Views: 3025

Liner locks are simpler to make, and generally cheaper. As said above. But not only is it easier to clean a liner-lock folding knife, and it makes a lighter knife, but also it allows for an easy, close inspection of the lock. Any lock can fail, but realistically the liner lock will show serious wear...

I've had a few Emersons , and they all developed premature bladeplay... Not to add the "bashing", I guess I just also was unfortunate with those Emerson folders. One knife, the Super Kerambit was especially bad. Now I just don't buy them. However, I've got a good friend, who's Emerson knives are in ...

I, also, am not a fan of Microtech. I've had a UTX and an UltraTech, and I used to open and close these all the time. But once in a while they malfunctioned in a way that the knives wouldn't close. I would have to bang it a couple of times to retract the blade. Also, they are non-serviceable; they u...

The StreetBeat is one of my all time favourite EDC fixed blades. It is super ergonomic, got a great taper and a great blade design. I even used mine in the woods a few times, as my all around camp chore knife, and found it to be very good for that also. I wish Spyderco could make another perrin fixe...

Here is the OW Izula, with my OW BK-11. Notice that I put polish on the Izula handle. The BK-11 has a longer handle, and the grip is not so versatile. Though (IMO) it's better than the Izula in the Sabre grip. The RAT coating appears to be a tiny bit tougher, and it seems that it holds an edge a bit...

Izula in Olive wood

Good job with the wrapping.
The Izula is an amazing little blade. I've done mine in Olivewood, and added a reflective tape, also. :p

Emerson have some even ground blades, yet I don't think they've ever made a Full Flat Ground blade. That is one main reason I don't like Emerson knives.
Also, their liners (titanium btw.) are questionable... I've had many fail on me after short time, and not so hard of usage.

I had what I think was a limited stain version. I agree that the blade was horrible for EDC. But then again, I hate chisel grind, and not a big fan of Emerson overall. I traded that knife a week later.
