Re: College Football Season 2019-2020

Since Ok U got Hurts they could surprise everyone. How many SEC quarterback transfers are now starting in other conferences? Jalen Hurts (Alabama-Oklahoma) Jacob Eason (Georgia-Washington) Justin Fields (Georgia-Ohio State) Shea Patterson (Ole Miss-Michigan) It's like the SEC is a training camp for...

Re: Sal - Plans re: Mantra 4?

I bought both Mantra's when they first came out. As produced imo the Mantra is a great knife (improved Delica if that's possible). :rolleyes: Back then I was calling and hoping for a Mantra 2XL. The additional blade/edge length (prox 4")and it's mass would greatly improve the flipping action. With L...

Re: College Football Season 2019-2020

We love our Gators but next Saturday will be a real test. Auburn is just so strong. If I had to pick a score, Auburn by 18. Imo Fl shouldn't be in the top 10. Can't wait to watch this one. Hoping the Gators can pull out a win, but they'll have to play MUCH better than they have been :)

Re: COFFEE: Who Drinks The REAL Stuff? Gourmet Beans too?

Good thread, thanks for the reminder to clean my coffeemaker. Hadn't been done in 3 or 4 months. Fortunately little build-up. Just ordered whole bean Caribou coffee from Sam's Club. Anyone tried this?

Re: So what's your top 3 favorite steels? and why?

Really hard to pick top 3. I favor steels with good corrosion/rust/stain resistance that respond to sharpening easily. I enjoy sharpening my knives. Needless to say not a dull one in the house. Would like to see the LC in more platforms, need to use it more. LW Police probably my next purchase. In n...

Re: OSPREY Fishing Diving into the water and coming back out.

You might get a fish and teach the Osprey to come take it from you. That would be a neat trick. :eek: I've had them take my speckled perch a couple of times..and leave them for me a couple times. I slow troll with lines well back behind the boat. When reeling in fish on the surface they dive for di...

In at DLT, Spyderco is really trying to hit the wallet. Police 4 LW, more Kapara, CQI SpydieChef, and discontinued knives all at the same time. Whew, hard to decide.

Re: College Football Season 2019-2020

Trask showed he was very capable for the Gators, if he (and others) can stay healthy they may end up with a pretty good season. Auburn showed they are a solid team. Tough to get thru the season in the SEC without loss(s) a lot of really good teams. Love college football. UGA and Notre Dame was a goo...

Re: Has Anyone Noticed? Skyrocketing Food Prices?

Don't know if prices are "skyrocketing" but they are definitely going up. I worked in grocery when younger so I pay close attention to pricing. I do most of the shopping for me and my wife. Buying the "deals" when available and selective shopping helps to defray the increase. We eat a lot of fish, s...

Re: College Football Season 2019-2020

Clemson looks to me like the favorite this year. That Lawrence kid, at QB is the real deal. Gonna be a good year for College Football imo. Some really strong teams out there this year... Clemson, Alabama, Georgia,LSU,Texas,Ohio State Michigan, imo, is highly overrated. Agree with you on Clemson and...

Re: Spyderco coffee mug

In addition to a "standard" coffee cup, it would be nice to have an insulated Spydie "travel mug" Always take a cup when leaving to fish in the morning.

Re: Is the Siren a Salt?

Really enjoying the Waterway, a great design. The LC has very good edge retention, sharpens easily, and now my favorite steel around saltwater. My wife and I were able to sneak offshore last week in the Keys, caught 13 tuna (all footballs) and 9 Mahi, none big all 24-25" to the fork. Waterway worked...

Like my Marlins. Still have the .22 semi-auto I bought for squirrel hunting in 1969. Can't remember exactly but when silver was high, I think 1974 sold some and bought a 336 in 30-30 still have it, $169 on sale. Used to deer hunt with it, have shot it little but the last time sighting it in at 100 y...

When moving into the higher end knives, there are a lot of nice custom fixed blades out there vying for the $$. The Prov...
