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...

Re: Help me decide!

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...

Re: COFFEE: Who Drinks The REAL Stuff? Gourmet Beans too?

The wife uses a pour over system that uses no paper filter, so no waste. I find it takes too long however and it’s not hot enough for my likes. I use these spoon things I got for $3 at Princess Auto. Coffee is still plenty hot but it lets some of the really fine grinds through so I lose the last si...

Re: Spyderco Para 3 Varieties, News & Modifications

Twenty five. Not one, not two or three, twenty five variations of the same knife, and not one variation for the left handed. Come on guys, lefties are 10% of population, give us some credit. I’m sure it’ll happen eventually. But like the PM2 it’ll be a plain Jane s30v in black g10. I was totally on...

Re: Talking about your traditional knives

So as it turns out, my belated Father’s Day gift adorned in wenge wood pattern, matches almost perfectly with the bocote wood I recovered my knife in just the day before! The knife was also a gift from my wife and kids, Xmas I believe.

Re: COFFEE: Who Drinks The REAL Stuff? Gourmet Beans too?

Yup, lots of coffee up here, Alcohol too. You’re right, when it’s -40 degrees Celsius and into the -50’s with windchill effect, you need it!
I usually drink dark roast coffee, and dark beer.

Re: EDC, or rotation?

I can’t really vote in the poll as none of the option quite fit. These days I’d say 90% of the time I’ve got the Smock in pocket but like to switch it up every now and then. Ikuchi or my old Cruwear Manix 2 like to sneak in lately. Also I usually carry a traditional in my back pocket as well. Someti...

Re: Why the lil native...

I wanted something similar in size to my Dragonfly, Df is nice but too small in hand and not a fan of wire clips. Lil’ Native backlock fills the hand more and has a better clip. Prob would have got the compression lock version though if it had the right clip. I'm in this boat, don't trust the wire ...

Re: Cancer question.

There are treatments that work and some patients leave treatment clean and clear of cancer. Some come back. Different treatments effect...

Re: COFFEE: Who Drinks The REAL Stuff? Gourmet Beans too?

Long time ago I had the occasional coffee and enjoyed it. Then I got an ulcer that was really irritated by it so I had to cut out coffee. Fast forward a few years and the ulcer went away along with the cause of it but that’s a long story, now I love/need, lol! my coffee. I usually just use the Tassi...
