Does anyone know or has anyone heard when the Manbug sprint with SB will be available? I imagine it may be sometime this year??? :) Jack I do not know if this will help or make matters worse...KW has put both on their website with 'coming soon'. They do not normally list knives that have not been r...

I think that if this were actually going to get off the ground there are two types of knives to consider: 1] select some perenial favorite, such as the Dragonfly or the Delica, using special blade steel and handle material, etc. (my choice) or 2] select a specialized knife of some sort (Native, Caly...

I would welcome the G10. I just can't love that FRN, no matter how hard I try.

The Chaparral that I bought was a little rough. The blade polish was not well done and the edges of the knife, all over, were very sharp. It is pretty nice, now, but I had to do the work to bring it up to snuff. The Delica is bigger and does not disappear like the Chap does. But the blade is a lot t...

I have said this many times on this forum. I absolutely want a DF in CF. I really like that new black/blue that is on the Domino. I do not like the Nishijin as it is, well, not to my taste.

I am constantly amazed at how many men actually carry a pink Squeak. I have seen a lot of comment on this on other forums. Maybe I should order one for mysel...er, my wife? I like the N690 Co but I wonder if a yellow handled N680 would be in order? That way, we could have a good salt water knife. Th...

I agree with Halfneck. Batoning with a knife, while it can be done (is done) is not the best use for a knife. A good knife need not be built like a Sherman Tank. If you need that, get a light hatchet (which is what I use) that is designed for such abuse. Many hatchets weigh less than these knives 's...

How Do You Carry Your Squeak?

Hi folks, how do you all carry your Squeaks? Mine rides in the pocket of my motorcycle jacket most of the time, sans pocket clip. It is perfect because it is friendly to non-knife people (most of the people around here) and I can open and close it discreetly (very important here). Plus, I always hav...

After examining a number of them, I bought the Manbug G10 and it was not because of the name. I bought it because the bolsters remind me of a good old Barlow knife. The blade design is superior for a wider variety of tasks. It is a bit beefier and stronger.

I love that blue and it seems as though, from the pics posted, that it has CF threads instead of wire. I want more. I want to see a DF with this and, dare I dream it?...a Caly3.
This stuff seems to have just enough touch of blue to give it some depth and elegance.

When I was a kid we were fishing and a very large, Large Mouth Bass jumped into the boat with us! It is still funny thinking of us kids slapping at that fish with paddles and poles, hitting each other and my father more than the fish. We finally got him, though. Still fun to think back on.

The Caly3 is a beautiful, strong knife and is my favorite Spyderco of more than 2 inches of blade length. You made a fantastic choice.

I usually have a Dragonfly G10 and something else in my pocket. Or, if I do not have the DF I carry a Manbug G10 and something else.

What do you think of the blue carbon fiber?

Well, Spyderco has done it to us again by surprising us with the Domino with Blue Carbon Fiber.
What do you all think of this blue carbon fiber?
If it is as nice in reality as in the pictures, I want more knives with this stuff.
I would love to see a Dragonfly with the blue carbon fiber.

Another cheap solution is to buy some of that rubber 'paint' that is used to coat hammer handles and other slippery tools. It comes in a can and is applied like paint. You can dip your scales or paint them with a paint brush (cheap one). I have done firearms, knives, hammers, handlebars, and many th...
