Don't know how you feel about a paddle holster, some folks don't like them. I carry a Glock 26 everyday in either a Comp-tac paddle or a Alabama Flapjack belt holster. I use both holsters with a Belt Man belt (awesome must have purchase). Holster is only as good as your belt but you already know tha...

I posted a thread just like this a couple months ago and someone suggested a VG-10 Stretch. I ordered one that day and
am very happy with it. And it gets used EVERY Saturday and 2 or 3 other days of the week !

I have big-ish hands (size L gloves) and I prefer the feel of the the Delica to the Native so that's something to consider. Both are fine knives, though. Have you checked out the Manix 2 Lightweight or the Endura? Thanks evan, probably should have mentioned my BIL is a real life Brutus, he can almo...

Sitting at my desk at work before anyone else arrives looking at my orange Urban Wharncliffe. Such a cool little knife and blade shape. Got me thinking, i would love to see a Golden made Wharncliffe knife around 7.25" to 7.5" long with a lock, any lock and wire clip. What do you guys think ? What st...

Mine is really simple. I want a G10/VG10 Caly 3. I know Sal said we are getting a Superblue Caly 3 and i will get one of
those as well. I love my Caly 3.5 but would really like the smaller version as well.

Well i received my Stretch & Techno this past Saturday, didn't order the ZDP Delica. Not yet anyway. I did order the VG-10 Stretch and i know i'm really going to like this knife. I said earlier that this was going to be my Saturday work in the yard, chore type blade and probably not my EDC but i hav...

Sorry, I attempted to indicate that the FFG Delica would be thinner behind the edge than the Stretch. A reason I pointed to clarify the flat-saber vs FFG with Jeff. Great point and agreed! They are wrong per the spec sheet. http://www.spyderco.com/catalog/details.php?product=285 Sorry, never checke...

Very nice :) The ZDP-189 Delica will have a bit better edge geometry as it's thinner (2.5mm vs 3mm). You might email Jeff at CS and ask if it's the full flat ground or saber ground one though. I know he answers his phone readily too. If you have no preference don't worry. They just went to FFG as a...

I've got a Delica 4 with saber grind, and I kind of doubt that it's thinner behind the edge than the Stretch, even if the blade stock is thinner; there's a lot of steel in that primary bevel -- I know, because I thinned mine down to 20 degrees inclusive, a task which took me several hours, and crea...

Thanks again guys for the helpful replies. Got it figured out, going with a ZDP blade but its going to be on a Delica 4. Also buying a Stretch in VG-10 and using the extra $28.00 toward a Techno ! Just put those three in my shopping cart at the Cutlery Shoppe.
Thanks again,

Want a new Stretch, which steel ?

Hello everyone As title says i'm going to get a new Stretch, just don't know if its worth the $28 difference for ZDP over VG-10. I know thats not alot of money, just wondering if there is that much performance over the VG-10 steel. I already own 6 knives with VG-10 and i like it alot. I don't own an...

I've had my Sage 1 for 4 or 5 weeks now and it's fit & finish are as close to perfect as you can get from a production knife ! This is my 3rd Taichung knife ( have a GB & Chaparral also) and i'm more impressed with these 3 then any of my Golden or Japanese made folders. I ordered the S1 & Caly 3.5 t...

BTW The Deacon is 100% correct in his description on the single chicago screw style fastener. You will need 2 seperate T8 torx driver/bits to tighten both
sides at the same time. I assume the Chaparral also uses T8, thats what my Caly 3.5 was.

Snapped my wire clip on my 2 week old caly 3.5, called SFO and was told the silver clip was on backorder. Was sent a black clip for a chaparral. 2 days mail to
North Carolina for $8.90. Great service !
