Re: Forged in Fire TV show

I'm sure a lot of people here would say that the tests don't reflect real life but I enjoy seeing them just the same... I too enjoy the show. I agree on the testing is OK but it fits more into making a television show. good visuals than actual knife testing. After testing I do like the smiling resp...

Re: Facebook is the WORST!!

It's a great way to keep with friends and family that live across the country and around the world. It's fairly easy to avoid trolls and drama with settings, but frankly it's pretty easy to ignore the drama and nonsense. I happen to like discussing politics so that works for me too. There is a also ...

Re: Anybody got a Knife?

Doc I agree, if it has an edge, runs on gasoline or gunpowder, the answer is always no. One of my sons learned this lesson the hard way recently. A fellow at work asked to use is knife. He asked the fellow what he was going to cut and the response was, "Plastic." A few seconds later he heard the dis...

Re: Social Networking = Sadness?

Sadness is part of life, a sexully transmitted terminal disease. Facebook is a great way to keep up with family and friends as well as people that have a common interest, e.g., Spyderco. True, there are Facebook users that just cannot mind their own business and those cannot avoid drama and indeed s...

Re: How often do you clean your sharpmaker rods/sharpening stones?

I use Bar Keepers Friend or Bon Ami cleanser. They both use softer abrasives, feldspar and eggshells respectively, and make quick work of cleaning the Sharpmaker rods.

Re: What a relief!

Oh man, talk about visiting someone's house and telling them how to live their lives. Some people never learn any manners, I'm sure this person will someday suffer the consequences of their big mouth. Too bad we can't be there to cheer on their aggressor. :D

Thank you for letting me know.

Re: Worst Spyderco Designs?

My nomination is the Leaf Storm, I know I'm in a minority here, it is a great looking knife, but I always worried about my index finger contacting the edge of the blade.

Re: Worst Spyderco Designs?

Ed Schempp Balance 1.jpg ][attachment=0]3.jpg I disagree, on the Balance. It's the perfect gentleman's knife. I have gifted several and all are much used and appreciated. It may be strange looking to some knife aficionados, but the balanced appearance itself is very, well, balanced. The knife funct...

Re: Is this okay or disrespectful to people?

What would compel one to change another person's name? IMO, it's a form of disrespect. Now if you have a name that is difficult to pronounce or prone to mispronunciation, that is another matter. In that case do maintain a sense of humor and don't get upset when the likely happens. Nicknames, totally...

I saw a tweet this morning. :D

I suspect the (excellent) parents had some involvement in having Owen write the letter and making sure the letter was legible.

Re: Anti-gun nonsense

I live in a town that had a mass school shooting. I am not sure that laws will eliminate these types of events, but I would gladly accept restrictions if it means a few people's sons/daughters come home and the end of the day. These horrible tragedies occur because there are mentally infirm people ...

Re: Anti-gun nonsense

Australia just converted their, "gun problem" into an underground submachine gun manufacturing problem for criminals and a total loss of freedom for law abiding gun owners. Excellent point about 30 years ago. The non islamic related shooters get off on their fifteen minutes of fame. The shooters and...

Re: Allergy Shots

Like everything, allergy testing and shots have changed and improved over the years. You also need to find a dedicated allergy Doc that keeps up with the science. Ours is quite good, both myself and the wife have some allergies. They do change over time and my wife went first. I got tired of annual ...

Re: Fake Tech Support Calls: Anyone else get them?

Microsoft never calls, even if you have the ultimate top tier support level. The IRS and court clerks don't call either, they are just criminals looking to separate you from your money. If you don't recognise the caller just let your voicemail or answering machine take a message, if it's really impo...
