Re: What were the biggest changes to your EDC habits in 2018?

I was always a Gerber guy mainly collecting A/F line. The combat folders were my go too edc. Late in 2018 I I switched to my millies, left and right versions. Although I own many knives of different companies very few ever made it into my pockets. A sak also accompanies me most days.

Re: Is the native5 the new delica?

I have 2 natives and they rest in the drawer. Why you may ask? Because when they are open they fit my smallish hands but when closed they are a pain in the thumbs to open. The hole sits too far in the handle. So, they get no carry time. I like the delicas because the hole is out there easy to use.

Re: Your Spyderco Thanksgiving EDC

I started going with my millies, left and right versions couple of days ago. That's what I will carry today and forseeable future.

Cara Cara stiffness

My only Byrd is a Cara Cara stainless that I have had for a couple of years. The main reason I don't edc this knife is because of blade stiffness. There are no screws to adjust and I have tried oiling and working it back and forth. Anything else I can try? Has anyone else had this problem?

I am fortunate to own a Goddard/Spyderco. It's one of my favorites. He will be missed.

Re: Would You Buy a Blue Handled Spyderco?

I bought a blue delica and it's my least favorite. It wasn't part of a charity program. The problem I have it blade stiffness, it has no pivot screw so I have tried all the remedies posted here to no avail. I do carry it but it takes a determined effort to open.

Re: Buying my second Spyderco.

Well everyone, my cut is still healing and I’m ordering my second Spyderco Monday. My budget is around $165ish range. I really want to try S110V, but I’m open to anything really. My current knife is a Tenacious, so just about anything is an upgrade over 8cr13mov. I’ll still use my Tenacious for dir...

Re: Worst things to cut thread

Had an old Cold Steel voyager that I used for a loaner Boss took it one day to open a large bag of rocks. He turned my SE in to PE in a matter of minutes.

Persistence vs. Tenacious

I was looking at the latest catalogue and I was wondering what the forum residents think of the Tenacious and Persistence as for quality and useability. Are they simply a step above Byrds? Do you have them and use them? I am considering one or both as a next purchase and don't want to rely on the re...

Re: Steak knife

Boy this brings back memories. Back in my navy days (early 70s) meals on board ship were an adventure in culinary experience. The mystery meat they served was indeed tough and the knives supplied couldn't cut butter. Out came my Buck 311 to the dismay of others around me. Didn't make it taste any be...

Re: Review: original Rescue vs modern Endura

Love the old rescue. Mine has a faded look along the edge from what I have no idea. It pairs nicely with an old delica I have also with the plastic molded clip.
