I have a plain black vesuvius as my PE EDC and I'm very happy with it. I prefer my blades tip up, and left it in this condition. But I don't keep it in my pocket, I have it IWB. It seems less likely to open tip up when I carry it. I'm very pleased with the compression lock, though I've heard some co...

Several years back the Shomer-Tec catalog had rubber spydies. Endura, Delic, and Civilian if I remember correctly. http://www.shomertec.com/ I just checked and they didn't have it on their website. They may still have it in their catalog. <a href=http://www.spyderco.com/forum/Topic.asp?topic_id=6200...

Gunting Holster

I'm looking for a skunkworks holster for my gunting. I've tried to call the number located at: http://members.ispwest.com/doughunt/skunkworks/sheaths.htm but there was a woman's voice on the machine. It sounded residential. I also tried the email listed there. (skunkworks@aol.com?) to no avail. Anyb...

It's interesting reading the above comments. Mostly, I saw 'heft' as the answer. I'm partial to the FRN knives. I like that they're lightweight, and have no problem with the weight differential between the blade and handle. I've carried the Buck 110, and now it seems ridiculously heavy when I pick i...

Normark questions -- VW Help?

I've sent a few emails to Eric @ Normark regarding a neck sheath for the SS Dragonfly. No one has responded. Anyone know what's up? BTW, I've looked at a few other sites: I'd really like the sheath to carry the blade folded, tip down. Normark's is the only one I've seen that does this, and the price...

I carry for utility purposes (and fun too). SD is always an option, but I live and work in a fairly low-risk environment. Furthermore, I am untrained in knife combat, a situation I'd like to rectify in the near future. <a href=http://www.spyderco.com/forum/Topic.asp?topic_id=6200&forum_id=7&Topic_Ti...

My original Spydie buy was a rescue. Over the years I carried it, I sharpened both sides equally. Looking back, I think this was a mistake, though I did follow the instructions in the booklet my Sharpmaker came with. I agree you should sharpen the "front" side more than the "back" how much, I don't ...

As one with personal experience being cut with a SE blade, I figured I'd chime in. Through some carelessness and general mishap, I sliced my thumb open while attempting to cut rags with my SE Rescue. I nearly separated 1/4 of my thumb from the rest of it, requiring some 14 stitches and 11 novacaine ...

Shortly after 9/11 I heard a news bit that claimed the hijackers did not carry their 'box cutters' onboard themselves.

Dremel: my favorite power tool

To be honest, I don't own that many power tools, but I must say that the Dremel multi-tool is my favorite by far. I've used it for countless projects, both around the house and for hobbies. With my knives, I have used it to shine up my SS dragonfly handle. Unfortunately, the emery wheel wasn't the b...
