Re: Bark River Knives

SG, they make a ton of models. Would you mind identifying them?

What is the small one with the wood handle?

Do you like the convex grind?

Re: Corona Virus, Chinese Origin, Now In the USA

I try to live everyday like it is my last and I honestly have zero fear of death. I have been living on borrowed time for many years. I would definitely hate to see someone I care about get sick but I also would hate to see them filled with dread so I hope they all continue to take it one day at a t...

Re: Me New Motto Mates!

One of Spyderco’s strengths is that they try to make something for everybody and they try their best to make as many people happy as possible. Unfortunately collectors like exclusivity and they like knives appreciating in value. Users do not like either one of those things. It seems like it will be ...

Re: Siren v/s Spydiechef

The design of the Spydiechef never appealed to me and a I also wished it was bigger.

The Siren looks brilliant and is a must have for me. I have high expectations for it and I think I will be pleased.

Re: Can some steels be bad for our health ?

Knife makers should wear respirators of some sort.

Plus, I am sure OSHA is making sure that larger knife factories are well ventilated. I have been a blue collar guy all my life and when I have worked for larger facilities OSHA was always watching us.

Re: Military 3 vs delica.

Delica = 2.5mm stock
Para3 = 3.7mm stock

The Para3 doesn’t fit my hand very well. I prefer the Native5 or Delica in that size range.

Re: Can some steels be bad for our health ?

It is a risk for knife makers but they should be wearing respirators.

I have zero concerns about doing food prep with a knife with cobalt in it.

I generally make a habit of not licking my sharpening stones when I’m done. ;)

Then spend $130 on live plants.

I usually buy a potted plant for my wife instead of cut flowers.

Re: Me New Motto Mates!

Sal, But are gemstones and precious metals valuable because they are beautiful or because they are rare? Seems like their value has a lot to do with how common they are and folks like the less common/more valuable materials. I think this is about status. My point is that many folks want knives in ex...

That is a lot of knife SG!!! Can’t wait for pics!

The Barkies are addictive. I think I am up to 8 now. All started with that Wilderness Explorer, then a Kephart and now an addiction.

Re: Me New Motto Mates!

I get frustrated when a steel geek cannot get his hands on an exclusive in a high performance steel because it was a hot item and all the collectors on Instagram gobbled them up. The TKJ exclusive seems doomed to be eye candy on social media. Sprints and exclusives have always been collectibles but ...

Re: Me New Motto Mates!

You cannot lose if you do not play. Vote with your wallet. It is a hobby. It is supposed to be fun. If it is not then you are doing it wrong and you should change something. Desire is the root cause of suffering. Spend more time enjoying what you do have and less time lamenting what you do not have....
