Re: Szabo Folder Review (Picture Heavy)

Vivi, exactly how I use the choil, also slight variations like pinching the blade depending on the task at hand. I find the Smock or my Manix are just right for edc, blade shape and length but especially the shape. Occasionally I’d like a bit longer but for some reason the police has never appealed ...

Re: Anyone prefer manual seats in a car?

My dad always said, the less fancy crap in a car, the less things can break. For the most part I agree. I don’t like most power accessories, I wish there were manual locks on passenger doors and trunks still and wish there were manual window cranks in addition to power windows, those power windows a...

Re: Szabo Folder Review (Picture Heavy)

I don’t really consider index choils, index choils. For me they are middle finger choils. By that I mean I use them to rest the tip of my middle finger in while pinching the blade itself between my index and thumb for very fine work or slitting tape to open a fragile package. That’s why I actually l...

Re: Knives that changed your minds - ?

Manix 2, Cruwear. It was my first, (of many) Spyderco. One of the reasons I chose it was the ramp. I wasn’t convinced gaining the hole was worth the “ugly” hump. (I now appreciate and even like the look of said hump). But at the time I wasn’t yet sold. The Manix had enough of one to experience it ye...

Re: Szabo Folder Review (Picture Heavy)

I’m going to wake this thread up again since I just ordered one! I was posting in the what’s next for the Sage thread about how I wanted a 3 with the funky cf pattern. (I really like it, it reminds me of Ukrainian embroidery, also similar to a pattern on a belt my late father always wore). It remind...

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

I don’t usually carry something this large but I’m waiting for my just ordered Szabo folder to arrive so I figured I should get used to it.

Re: What's next for the Sage?

I know I’m in the minority but I actually like the “Cosby sweater” pattern. It reminds me of both Ukrainian embroidery pattern and my late fathers belt that he always wore, (not the disciplinary type, lol!). Unfortunately it’s hard to find now, and the ones available on eBay, (Canada) go for $300+ a...

Re: What's next for the Sage?

I think the stop lock would be a good way to go on the next Sage. I’m still looking for a 3 with the patterned cf, (like my Domino) at a reasonable price, I know, good luck,lol! But there’s a sentimental reason for it so I’ll keep looking.

Re: Victorinox photo and discussion thread!

When I ordered the Spartan I mentioned, I also ordered a mini screwdriver for the corkscrew. It arrived ahead of the SAK so I decided to try it in my Leatherman Juice corkscrew and it fits! I just ordered another, lol!

Re: Lil Native just keeps getting better

Really like mine. I too find the Native 5 a poor fit for my hand. The Native 3 is nice, but not the 5. I might have got the CL version if it had the better clip but it has the wire so I got the lockback with its much better clip. I don’t mind the stock thickness or bte thickness on this sturdy littl...

Re: Any grip/wrist strength enthusiasts here?

Not an enthusiast but grip strength runs in my family. My sister can crack almonds open when she sneezes. We discovered that one Xmas when we had a bowl of nuts and she had a bad cold, lol! I never did anything specifically to increase my grip strength but when working out I’d do a fair amount of wr...

Re: Victorinox photo and discussion thread!

So for years I’ve carried an Alox Vagabond on my keys and love it! Over those years I’ve considered getting a larger SAK many times but could never decide on a model. Just the other day I came across a Spartan that I had to have! F6495D8D-025C-42B6-8B12-5B18BF28AE4B.jpeg Now the problem is I’m not i...

Re: What did you use your Spyderco for last?

Just used my Smock to cut some weed trimmer line. Earlier this a.m. a much more important task, freeing my tassimo coffee disks from their packaging imprisonment.

Re: Behind the edge database!

Looked but didn’t see, anyone measured a Smock yet? I don’t have a good enough set of calipers but mine seems crazy thin with that hollow grind.

Re: Is that knife really that important?

I’ve definitely slowed down on my collecting. I’ve always tried to avoid having duplicates, not just exact duplicates but more than one of the same knife. The only exception has been for a Cruwear PM2 and the Cruwear Delica that’s on its way. (One other actually, had to pick up a pair of matching Te...

Re: Unabridged Unapologetic Case for the Para Military 2 Left Hand *

I was excited for this one and had planned on grabbing one...then just before it’s release they put out a grey Cruwear right hand PM2. Well Cruwear over handedness was a no Brainer! I just can’t see a s30 lefty winning pocket time over Cruwear. Now I’m waiting to see if a Smocked righty PM2 hits the...

With what you’ve got there, I’d put cf on the Cruwear, and the black g10 with the black 52100.

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

Brous Bionic Xl. Got this guy real cheap a while back. Was able to apply 2 coupon codes and redeem points on a sale or clearance price. Really like it overall but it needed some refinement. I reduced the size of the flipper tab and turned the sharpening choil into a finger choil, (it didn’t extend f...

Re: Have you tried to open an Ikuchi with wet hands?

I just oiled mine, without disassembly. Just loosened the pivot, gently spread apart liners and added some oil. Closed her back up and flipped a few times with the flipper wheel covered in oil, (downside to not taking it apart to oil) No problem opening whatsoever unless I tighten the pivot too much...
