Re: The loss of common courtesy

Perhaps, but I have found what you project has much to do with what you receive.

Re: Favorite Big Spyder Folder?

Until recently O would have said it's my Super Blue Endura, that steel works really well for me. OTOH, I recently started carrying my Tatanka so I can no longer consider the Endura as a "Big" folding knife. :D

Re: What was your first computer?

I built my first computers, a simple analog computer that could do simple match and a switching logic computer that electrified the old riddle of a farmer with a bushel of corn, a goose and a fox that he had to move across a river. His boat could only carry one item at a time and he had to prevent t...

Re: Car question: How to stop a brakeless car? Hit a Tree

We have a particularly steep driveway, it drops more than 100 feet in elevation and is difficult to walk up or down because of the steep angle. Guests have asked what I'd do if I lost my brakes, I always, say, "I'd steer off the driveway and hit a tree right away." Why? "Because at the bottom I'd be...

Re: Sig Sauer P238 Blackwood: Mini Review (Pic Heavy)

I have eyed that one for years and it is a really nice piece. Any lover of the 1911 platform would be giddy to have one scaled down as small as is reasonably possible. Unfortunately my LCP was half the price and weighs half as much. I like to pocket carry and the LCP is just over 12 ounces loaded. ...

Re: QUEEN CUTLERY: Very Respectable

They are very nice traditional pocket knives. They made a limited run of doctor knives a couple of years ago. Flat end for crushing medicinal powders, a spatula blade for mixing and administering medicines and an long narrow knife blade for minor surgery and lancing jobs back in the day. I bought so...

Re: BladeHQ All Spyderco Lock Test

Flawed test? Seriously? All those knives took way more force than you can exert on the handle of a knife while doing any job a knife is designed to perform. But did we really need a test to know that? I don't think that was the goal of the test was it? Some folks have an almost religious fascinatio...

Re: USPS follies

Overall, very good. I ship and receive a lot of USPS packages. I get pretty good delivery times unless a package gets routed thru New York, San Antonio or Atlanta. Not always, but too often it can take two or more days to exit these locations. Our local PO carriers are very good, substitute carriers...

Re: East Coast seconds sale?

I'm sure there would be interest in a "local" seconds sale just about anywhere in the USA. Beyond that, it would probably follow the same logic as the one in Golden. A few die hards would consider it a pilgrimage and trek from great distances, but most attendees would be folks who lived within what...

Re: Des Horn latecomer

Congratulations on the new job and the Des Horn. This knife is one that looks so much better in person than in photographs and that slim point is pretty handy for some task like splinter removal.

Re: Do you cold brew (coffee) ?

I love coffee, but my stomach and head are not really fans :( When I made a recent foray back in to having morning coffee, the tool was a Bodum Santos vacuum brewer. IMO vacuum brewing, while a hassle to use makes the best *hot brewed* coffee, lower acid and more richness than perk, drip or even Fr...

Re: Do you cold brew (coffee) ?

I used to use the same setup for my wife, she prefers iced coffee. When we both retired she drank a lot more coffee! :) Now we brew one pot a day, but turn off the heat as soon as the coffee is finished brewing.
