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.

Re: Sharpening and Shapton Glass Stones

I've never had problems with the glass stones when sharpening CTS-XHP, S30V, HAP-40 etc.

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.

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

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. Watch the video from DBH here...M4 still isn't as tough as i would personally like at the edge. Again, i could personally ca...

Re: Newspaper stropping?

Interesting. I find it pretentious saying news paper can't strop things like HAP-40 or S30v. It does. Just with less forgiveness.

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

Or 4v... Honestly. Rex45/m4 and 3v/4v would probably be must buys. But I'd definitely prefer Rex45/M4 by a huge Longshot, in what situation would the need for toughness of 3v/4v even surpass the advantage of hardness/wear resistance of the other mentioned steels? As someone that's taken S30V XL's d...

I prefer the middle ground, tool steels. D2, M4, Hap-40 etc. But I appreciate pretty much every steel.

Re: Future of the PowerLock

Probably because “perfection is not when there’s nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.” Spyderco definitely has a minimalist philosophy: nothing more than is necessary. I’m not saying a power lock police wouldn’t be awesome and a novelty, but does it make the police bett...
