Re: Knifeworks M4 PM2!

That's generous of them to limit one per person. I don't think they'll sell out super quickly on the heels of the BHQ Para and at a much higher price. As many complaints as I saw about the Jade G10 on the BHQ exclusive where folks feel it shows dirt easily, I think this will be a more popular optio...

Re: Old Millie has some "play"...

If I got one, I would EDC it. Rather have a ti fluted one or a G10 S110V for EDC? I love my 52100, but I would rather EDC a stainless knife....would be nice to get a fluted one and swap the blades between that and a S110V, when they drop. I absolutely love my fluted Ti Military's (yes plural, I hav...

Re: Manix 2 or Manix 2 XL?

I'd say it largely depends on the size of your pockets, and whether you carry other items in the same pocket and have to reach past the knife to get them. I do carry both (not at the same time :) ) but carry the regular Manix 2 or Military more often than the XL, except if I am whittling/playing aro...

Re: I've got a robot

I've wondered how well those things clean. My problem is that I'm a terrible housekeeper, and my piles of junk would probably prevent the robot from getting where it needs to in order to clean. That plus the 4 cats (hey that's an improvement from as many as 14 cats/4 dogs when my daughters lived at ...

Re: PM2 with titanium scales?

This thread is just making me wish Spyderco would produce a titanium para 2. I know it's been asked for a million times. Maybe a million plus one is the magic number they've been waiting for :) Or at least BHQ or KW could have an exclusive run? Those would sell like wildfire...even more so with flu...

Re: Credit card/Debit card theft.

Just because your credit card info was fraudulently used, doesn't necessarily mean it was due to your online purchases (though that is always a possibility). The "Lock" symbol on a site's URL just means that you are connecting via proper https (uses encryption so that other computers between you and...

Re: 2016 Seconds Sale?

I'd definitely be there if there is one in DFW -- though I might totally go overboard on the budget! Since I have occasionally pondered driving from DFW to Golden for a Seconds Sale, I could sure make it if it is in my back yard!

Re: Moran Knives: I'm considering one: Thoughts?

I really like my Moran's. I feel they are a solid value for the price. Good slicer, though not really a knife you want to "abuse" or try to baton through bricks with. Some people are bothered that it isn't full tang, but that just doesn't bother me. The handle feels comfortable to me. Are there othe...

Re: Military Collection!

Great collection! One of these days I'm going to try to get a family picture of all of my Millies. Trouble is, any pic is likely to soon be outdated -- just added 3 more this past week! (2 ea 52100, and a 2nd Green G10/204P KW exclusive). Carrying my CF/M390 Military today (along with a Yojimbo 2, S...

Re: 52100 Military, what are your plans?

Yeah they are trickling in, yesterday I just happened to check my email right after NGK sent out a notification they had some in stock again, picked up one of their remaining 3, so now I'll have 2 of the 52100, maybe a 3rd if Oso Grande ever gets any more. For awhile I was getting worried, I never s...

Re: 52100 Military, what are your plans?

Just picked it up. Hands down the best Millie Ive ever owned. I will definitely be getting a CTS 204P version as well... Now is the time to order a CTS-204P Millie, KW is throwing in a free 20 oz Yeti Rambler with it if you buy it this week. I couldn't help myself, I ordered a backup to my initial ...

Re: 52100 Military, what are your plans?

I'm looking forward to experiencing 52100 steel myself. Even though I own hundreds of knives, I don't have any in 52100 yet. I pre-ordered from KC about 6 months ago, and called them last week to update my credit card information since the original card I had given them was expiring. Today I see tha...

Re: Do you hoard your Spydercos?

On the broader subject, I've said this before on other fora: the key difference between a collection (with it's positive tone) and a hoard (with it's negative tone) is not in the amount of things or stuff that you have:- A collection is when you have a very good idea of what you have- for example, ...

Re: Do you hoard your Spydercos?

The first time I bought a duplicate it was accidental (I forgot I had already ordered one from a different vendor). But having had a scare where I couldn't find a special Sprint for awhile and fearing I would not ever be able to have that one again, it got to where I sometimes order 2 of the same kn...

Re: Native 5 Blurple G10 S110V C41GPDBL5 is dropping!

Mine arrived in the mail yesterday. Feels plenty sharp, shaves easily, but I haven't had time to do much more than glance at it. I would like to go over it with the SharpMaker first. Didn't put it in my pocket yet, for some reason one of my fluted Ti Native 5's decided it was time to be carried :) a...
