Re: Crazy Good Deals Part 2!!

I really loathe blade HQ. Yesterday that Paysan bundle was less and today they raised the price- probably because it was selling well. They do things like this all the time, just makes them seem greedy. Demand goes up and so does price. Demand goes down and so does price. That isn’t greed, it is ec...

Re: Why the lack of Elmax options -- are any on the horizon?

Elmax got a bad name early on kind of like S30V did. There is quite a bit of drama around the whole ordeal and some of the myths/lies that were circulated then still persist today. It was ZTs go to steel and I think they moved away from it partly due to consumer perception. Now it has been passed o...

Re: BladeHQ M4 Jade Dodo

I think I paid $40 or $50 for a used Blue Dodo years ago. You almost couldn’t give them away then. I sold mine quick because I didn’t like it. It just wasn’t terribly useful for me. I would just watch the secondary market for these. It is a quirky knife and many folks bought one because of hype or f...

Re: First Opinel Experience

Welcome to the club! I love my #9. :). It doesn’t have great edge retention but a knife this thin will cut for a long time either way. It is crazy that you can buy a folder for $17 that will out slice almost any other folder out there. They are ground like a Japanese kitchen knife and they make most...

Re: Why the lack of Elmax options -- are any on the horizon?

I like it but I don’t think we need it. Between XHP, S30V and M390 we have a good spectrum of stainless to choose from and Elmax falls in the middle of them.

That said, I would buy a foliage green Elmax Military.

Re: NFL Season: 2019-2020

The Pats could have played better but two touchdowns taken away and a terrible no call on this pass interference.

I will say, Breeland's coverage on that final play was amazing!

Re: Newbie steel question.

Production 1095 from companies like Ontario, Esee and Ka-Bar is run at 58 or lower. Hard to compare that to S30V at 60 or higher. 1095 can be run well into the 60s but you seldom see that.

FedEx

I hate FedEx. I also hate that Bass Pro/Cabelas uses them. I bought 4 pairs of redhead wool socks and yesterday FedEx just left them on the side of the road about a 1/2 mile from my house. I know that I live on a gnarly private road but either deliver it or don’t. Last winter I found multiple packag...

Re: Stretched Stretch - continued from Straight spine thread

If it is going to debut in G10 I think it should come with a steel upgrade. I think that the G10/VG10 combo at a high price point hurts sales. I love VG10 but it has no wow factor anymore for most people.

Cruwear is popular. S45VN will sell just because it’s new. I would go nuts for one in K390.

Re: New Service From the USPS

Unless they start delivering on private roads all other things are a moot point for me. I have gotten used to picking my packages up at the post office and in this era of package thefts it is probably the safest way. This service will probably tell me when my package is at the post office and ready ...

Re: Black S90V Delica with blue liners - KW exclusive

It looks nice and I am a Delica fan but probably gonna pass. S90V isn’t my favorite steel and $120 is a lot of scratch for a Delica.

It is exciting to see Seki using crazy steels though. :)
