Re: Thoughts on titanium scales

I like titanium scales, I think the Slyz bowie, mantra, techno, and advocate show the appeal. More and more I like metal because of the ease on pockets and I like the look. Sal had commented at one point that aluminum didn't sell really well. I was interested in anodized handles.

Re: Spyderco and Abel join forces

I'll be waiting for the Spyderco LAW tying vise collaboration. Abel has always had cool custom reels.

Spydero Moran in action

I came across this video- not really recent but they guy is making great use of a Moran trailing point. If you are sensitive to dead stuff don't watch it.

Re: What was your first Spyderco?

The addiction started with a dragonfly clip-it version vg-10 steel. I made the mistake of asking what the best pocket knife was.

Re: How often do you carry a fixed blade?

I usually keep mine in a drawer at home. Strangely I find I use my fixed blades more often - especially my Southfork. However, its really awkward to belt carry that knife.

Re: Investments

The best advice I have received has been:
1) There is no way to get rich quick
2) You need to spend money to make money. I've invested in some larger funds that have done well. You need to last through several market cycles.
3) Don't get greedy, don't get scared, be in it for the long haul

Re: Horrible topic but important: Why so many suicides?

Our culture is shaped by technology. Look at the medium we are using for this discussion. The online world has lead to a lack of connection and meaningful relationships. This magnifies the isolation of feeling alone and uncared for. Life is precious, it either all counts or nothing counts. Suicide n...

Re: Which model deserves to carry 15V's debut?

With a thread currently going on the Spyderco FB-01 MORAN model I'm thinking that model might also be a good one to do with 15V.

I'd go with the Moran, nice stock thickness. My understanding is Moran wanted a high end steel to make it really perform

Re: Cause and Effect: Direct and Indirect?

Causation and correlation are two different things but often confused. There are always exceptions.

After the introduction of helmets in WWI head injuries went up.

Re: Please recommend a decent little flashlight

I like Olight, the S1R Baton or the m2t. I have one of their keychain lights and l1reos that have connected to a SAK and is always on me. There are a lot of good deals and Olight has had some fantastic sales on.

Re: 2019 Knife Plans

I'm waiting to see what the steel is. If something pops up and its A11 or K390 around 3 inches I will grab it. That might lead me to sell my K390 Urban but who knows.

Re: Logging/Wood Cutting Hazards and "Widow Maker" facts?

I've done a lot of camping in the woods. Every time we set up camp we make it rule to look around to see what "widow makers" are around. Its not uncommon to have them come down in light winds. There are a great deal of rotted trees in the forest, its just part of the ecosystem.

Re: SPYDEREDGED Sprint Runs: It's Way Past Time

After seeing the BHQ video a SE Ayoob in k390 would be great. Well "Skidoosh" I screamed "hallelujah" at high decibels when you mentioned a C-60 Ayoob with K-390 blade steel. However I'll go one further than that. For the plain edge K390 sounds great to me but if they were to do a Spyderedged versi...
