Re: A not-so-tough H1 experience..

Last week my HAP-40 Endura didn't quite appreciate cutting through steel staples. Finished the rest of the day's work but it definitely didn't appreciate it much. So glad it wasn't S30v.

Nested liners would be great I just hope for a steel backspacer and variety of colors like on the endura and Delica.
I second the steel backspacer.

Re: Spyderco civilian why not EDC?

They're known to have fragile tips and they don't want to deal with inevitable breakage from the way an average joe may use it.

Re: REX45 + Sharpmaker: wise or foolish?

Depends on your comfort level, I'd go for the Rex-45 but I'm more equipped and comfortable sharpening and like steels like that Depends on how much you want to take care of the knife.

I've never experienced dino jumping before.
I had an old Stretch with peel ply cf and dino jimping. I'd say the jimping was not as good as modern jimping.
I'd say the same about the old "gear" style jimping.

Re: Manix 2 XL in CPM-M4 or Rex-45

I'm not saying I wouldn't love the 4v. I'd eat it up. I'd be hyped for any of those options. I just love HAP-40 so much I'd want something close to it in that knife.

It will be really interesting to see if this ever gets made.

The point I was making was, something like m4 is plenty tough enough as it is with the advantage of more wear resistance. Not that I'd kick 3v out of bed for eating crackers.
