Re: M42

Looks like a purpose built steel for high hot hardness. It isn’t terribly high in vanadium, tungsten or carbon. Not sure that it is a great choice for a blade besides the high hardness. CPM Rex20 looks cool. :cool:

I am way more interested in seeing some CPM-T15!

Re: S30v

As Spyderco fans we are truly spoiled. In most of the knife industry S30V and S35VN are still premium steels. Some would still call them super steels. It is hard to tell from inside the Spyderbubble but it’s true. I am proud to be a steel geek and even more proud to not be a steel snob. S30V is cons...

Re: Spyderco Supergold, Superblue ? VG10

Isn't V-toku2 white #2, or was it #3? Could have sworn it's a lower grade white steel. The white, yellow and blue steels are made by hitachi. V-Toku2 is made by Takefu. V-Toku2 looks like Blue #2 except that it is made with Swedish iron ore. The white steels lack tungsten and chromium and these two...

Re: Upcoming Shaman Exclusives??

Some might do well. Price will likely be a limiting factor. Some steels and some handle materials don’t add too much in cost. The CF/S90V was pricey and I am curious how much the Crucarta is going to be. I would guess that a Maxamet Shaman would come in at $275ish. Ouch! :) I’ll buy it though. If DL...

Re: Happy National Knife day!

Carrying my 52100 Military at the moment and listening to The Talking Heads because apparently it is also national strange music day. ;)

Happy NKD fellow knife junkies.

Re: Crazy deals @ Sierra and other places

I’ve seen a few knife dealers running specials for NKD but nothing too great and no Spydies. I could really use an EBay deal right now.

Re: Idea: Lanyard Tube Removal Tool

I am unsure why they need to be flared. My S110V Para2 wasn’t flared and I was happy with that. I don’t think that any of my Taichung knives are flared. I would be happy if they just stopped doing it. I just use a hardwood dowel with a little gorilla tape wrapped around it. Works fine so far. I am a...

Re: What I want (and a pony)

No such thing as a knife that never needs to be sharpenened. If you don't use it you don't have to sharpen it :D :D But is it still a knife if you don't use it-- or is it then a knife-shaped-object? ;) Maybe Darby is right from a metaphysical perspective--that all knives need sharpening? Sure, some...

Re: What "Other" is in your pocket???

Darby, what model is the very bottom knife? I was looking around last night on DLT Trading, it takes a little time going through the 5,968 models Bark River offers!! :D That is just their standard Kephart in desert ironwood. I really like it. They have done the standard Kephart in 3V and CPM154. Th...

The Keen today..
I love my Keen. I have the stonewashed brass version. One of my favorite knives. I would love to see Spyderco work with Laconico. Spyconico?

Sorry for the terrible focus. :o

Re: What "Other" is in your pocket???

Life has been crazy hectic lately (but not too busy to buy knives that I don’t need) which is why I haven’t been posting as much but I will get some comparison pics after work tonight. Please don’t put yourself out in anyway Darby. There’s no urgency whatsoever. :) https://i.imgur.com/VrF9FhHh.jpg ...

Well, they taste pretty good. :D

We raised goats when I was a kid and they were constantly getting killed by snakes. I have seen a couple of dogs get bit too.

Re: Where is my Bow River ?

Can we see the Bow River next to a Southfork?

Is the handle bigger on the Bow River?
