Re: Bad experience from Customer Service

Captain, at risk of joining you at the firing squad, allow me to apologize on behalf of this community. Some of the comments here are unnecessarily combative, childish, and unwarranted. This is one of several touchy subjects that unfortunately always leads down a shameful path. I completely underst...

Re: "HRC as advertised." Who is accurately listing HRC?

What leads you to believe that the M390 family is the toughest stainless steel available when comparing steels run over 60HRC? It is hard to get scientific data on this and most data is anecdotal. Charpy testing does not translate well to knife edges. I would think CPM154/rwl34, XHP, Elmax and even...

Re: "HRC as advertised." Who is accurately listing HRC?

Actually there is, if you stop looking at hardness and wear resistance only. For HRC > 60, M390 is the toughest stainless steel out there, in Spyderco knives at least. And I'm not talking about pry-bar use, but chipping, running into metal or bone when cutting something, etc. If you like Cruwear bu...

Re: Sal, Can we get CPM 15v?

Yeah, I have achieved paper towel slicing countless times. I have maybe achieved push cutting a paper towel a couple of times and I consider myself a great sharpener. I do prefer a coarser edge in the 800-1200 range so maybe I need a little more refinement. I think I may need to up my game finally a...

Re: "HRC as advertised." Who is accurately listing HRC?

In testing yes... that's actual measured testing using a known format that has repeatable results and narrows down the variables. In real world use? Not so much depending, not enough that the other variables wouldn't make a larger difference affecting the perception of performance . M390 costs more...

Re: What Spyderco is in your pocket today??

Police4 on my weekly hike at work. It is developing quite the patina and in the background are enough stinging nettles to feed me all summer. https://i.imgur.com/LxLOMjih.jpg Does your P4 still patina for you on a hot summer day or do you see rust spots? I decided to retire mine until things cool o...

Re: Neat thing about those Pacific Salts

I am pretty sure metal detectors are adjustable. On the highest setting the rivets on your jeans will set it off and on the lowest setting it will take a handgun to set it off. It all depends on where they choose to set the sensitivity. I forgot I had my BK14 around my neck once and walked through a...

Re: What to do if someone tries to rob you with a knife?

Give him what he wants and then go home and hug your family. It is only stuff and stuff can be replaced. I got mugged once. I gave them my wallet and there was no cash in it so they took my credit cards and gave me my wallet back. He was going to take the whole wallet but I asked him to just take th...

Re: DLC SE Dodo...A plea to BladeHeadquarters (BHQ)

I hate coated blades.

That said, BHQ has done DLC on all, or at least most, of these Jade/M4 knives so you should be in luck. :)

Re: Bad design choice?

That BHK you posted is intended as a bushcraft/survival knife. Not sure if that is the Scout Platoon or Highlander? I have thought about getting a Highlander in the past but never did. They may have left a little guard for safety. That blade shape is just based on old trade knives and has been done ...

I almost bought one of those Lionsteel traditionals. I want to believe that Lionsteel just botched that one. I really, really hope they didn’t target 51 HRC on purpose.

While I am happy that this information is being made available it also has other issues that come up related to it. I am always in favor of more data as long as we understand what it means. This data can easily be misused or misunderstood. Like the old saying goes, “knowing just enough to be dangero...
