Great pics fellas! Is there anyone that can do a batch 1 vs Batch 2 pic? I have Batch 2, was just curious how much of a difference there is http://i86.photobucket.com/albums/k100/syphen606/9aa654e5.jpg Batch 1 on the left, Batch 2 on the right. See my post about it with more comparison pics includi...

This has been discussed before and I agree that its solid CF with a different finish on the outer visible portion.

Actually, a forum model FRN UKPK that is Golden made is a great idea. It's a knife that most can afford and is a great knife! I would throw my vote there too. The suggestions of CF, M390 and other high end steels are simply self-serving and as mentioned before don't represent the spirit of a forum k...

Personally don't care much as to what knife it is... But if a limited Forum model is released, I'll drink the kool-aid and buy it.

But you have to look at the price point. Especially if it's just for web surfing and documents. Hell, I use my phone for both of those things more than a computer. If that is literally all a computer is used for (And I'm not directing this at the OP, just generally, I don't know what else you might...

My straight; Boker Tree Brand with brown micarta. And emergency backup / when-i-dont-have-time-to-strop. The Shavette with green holder actually works very well.

One more question. I'm pretty worried about that 90 degree tip. Would it be horrible of me to grind that down to a rounded tip? The square tip is fine. I've had no problems using them before. The whole process is about slowing things down and taking your time - do the job right. I shave more with a...

Don't like the bottle opener. Mixing drinking good beer that requires you to open with a bottle and a knife that could injure yourself or someone else with is not a good thing. Also, 3 inch blade is about a half inch to short. Handle is probably to short too? Looks well made though. Think I'll just...

As long as your willing to be responsible, you can start on a 600. I started on a 600 but after riding for a few years, I downgraded to a 250. I became a better rider because of it. My vote goes to an older CBR600F4 or CBR600F4i. Great all-rounders that are as happy on the track, touring or doing th...
