A Belated Happy Birthday David. To many more.
I used to be a forester myself when I was in my twenties... It was a tough job in a harsh environment, but it had its bright sides :)

For unkown reason I can't access the link, but based on the brief descriptions (modified wharncliffe "Insingo" style thin blade, thin frame lock) can I assume it's the A.G. Russell Skorpion?

Although I'm not particularily very fond of those, I do however own one, the plastic (Grivory) version made by Cold Steel. Sort of a backup disposable knife.

Views: 3472

The internal stop pin would require a radical redesign of the inner workings of a regular lockback. Besides, although an interesting feature, it raises more problems than it solves, IMHO. Knowing that Spyderco doesn't complicate a design more than necessary, I doubt that we'll see an internal stop p...

...As from your perspective doing what you do , the mix of a modern blade and shape with the hole but old scale material would be a cool look though ?... It is a delicate balance but I am sure that a talented maker (like, for instance, the Russian knifemaker Dmitri Sinkevich ) can come with somethi...

Congratulations on your anniversary. To many more and all the best to you both. Allthough you are saying she wouldn't like another knife, I suspect she would appreciate an SS Ladybug Tatoo for her keyring. Hey, it worked for my wife! ;)

Fankly, I'm glad that Spyderco doesn't explicitely give the Rc hardness.One can make an educated guess and of course, the one who is really interested in this matter can ask on the Forum(s) and get a good answer. But I'm glad that the Rc doesn't feature on the label. Most people tend to believe that...

He, he, I picked up a chick while on a mountain hike. ;) She was carying a pink Delica and that was what started the conversation. We've stayed friends since then and occasionally we meet when she gives me the knife for sharpening. If my wife finds out, I'm toast, so shhh... :o

I presume all those steaks and burgers leave a lot of bones behind after being processed. Otherwise, as far as handles are concerned, I like Spyderco espe...
