Re: How do you close your Manix 2?

I love my Manix2, but was a little worried when I first got it for much the same reason. The spring was stupid strong but after a couple days of playing, it loosened up to perfection and has stayed there since. Also you will get used to it and find a grip and closing method that works for you. I pul...

Techno today and most days. Manix 2 Cru-wear and BlueG10 Lava rotate in depending on tasks for the day.

I've got one of these,(dif colour). http://www.walmart.com/ip/SOG-Ninja-Daypack-Digital-Camo/36256331" target="_blank. It's a great pack, good quality, much better than I expected for the price. This one might not be any bigger than what you've got though. Might be worth seeing if they make anything...

Re: Dream Collaboration for New Spyder?

I too would love a Spyderco Razel. I have a crkt stubby and a ringed and love the design. I think a dream knife for many would be a full sized spydie flickable razel folder with carbon fibre scales, or titanium. Lefty friendly please : )

Re: CRKT Stubby Pocket Razel Chisel Razor Spyderco comparabl

Had a crkt stubby razel, used the crap out of it, lost it, bought another as well as a ringed razel. The first one saw a ton of use/abuse and was no worse for the wear! I've used the replacement and the ringed quite a bit too. I absolutely love the blade design,(it has to be the most versatile blade...

Re: Gift advice...

Right. Totally forgot about LeafStorm. Actually I had two of them. They look very nice. The first had a sticky lock. Second was nice, but I didn't feel that grip was secure. Sold it as well. I also wouldn't carry it as a only knife. Still think that Manix2 LW is a good option. Inexpensive and very ...

Re: Why do I almost always choose a 3" EDC blade?

I hardly ever use my knives to cut cardboard because it dulls them far to quick. I use a box cutter or utility knife for that. I have a very specific task at work that requires a utility knife but other than that and boxes I don't find a utility knife good for much. We always cut banding and strapp...

Re: Why do I almost always choose a 3" EDC blade?

I've got a blue Husky just like the one pictured, a Stanley and have tried different brands of blades and I can say that all have snapped on me. Don't get me wrong, they can be great for many things, but they can't handle the heavy straps that we get at the warehouse along with a variety of other he...

Re: Gift advice...

Look at a Techno, lots of cool factor. Being a shorter blade it won't raise too many eyebrows when He pulls it out to use it. Being his first blade, He might not realize some people freak out when someone pulls out a knife. Also it's compact size and deep carry make it pretty unnoticeable in the poc...

Re: Why do I almost always choose a 3" EDC blade?

However many working a blue-collar, labour job can surely benefit from a longer blade. Cutting down cardboard from cabinets, appliances, construction materials, you name it. In a warehouse you'll encounter plastic wrap and strapping that you need a longer blade for. I don't understand this argument...

Re: Why do I almost always choose a 3" EDC blade?

Good question. I'm one of the weird ones here who generally prefers to EDC a 2" blade or less vs. a longer blade for most of my cutting chores. Why's that? Well, I work in an office setting and typically never need more blade beyond 2". In fact, (I'll stick my neck out here ;) ) it kind of puzzles ...

Re: Why do I almost always choose a 3" EDC blade?

Right now my EDC is a Techno, (2.55'') and I find it perfect as my EDC size, big enough to do most tasks, small enough to safely use around my young children, (opening toys etc.) without wifey getting worked up, or even noticing for that matter. For days when I know I'll need to open a bunch of stuf...

Re: So sharpening

A related question: I really don't have the budget for a Wicked Edge, Edge Pro, or Work Sharp. Are there any less expensive options that allow you to quickly reprofile a blade at a precise, set angle, or is freehand my only option? Thanks! I justified the cost of my work sharp by counting up the kn...

Re: Comparable Brands

Here's another one. Definitely not in the same league, but then again no where near the price. I have found this little guy to be probably the most useful little knife I own or have ever used. Not too far off in size and I'll probably use the Techno for similar tasks so...

Re: So sharpening

I picked up a "Ken Onion edition Work Sharp" and it works really well. Nice even edge, easy to use, even if you don't have the steadiest hand, and does the job quickly. Only issue I've noticed is that the guide sometimes scratches the side of some blades, not all...? Oh well, doesn't really bother m...

Just got mine today, love it already! I disagree with anyone who says it's not good for lefties, I feel it is far better for a lefty than for right. The spydie flick is only available for a lefty, and the cutout rubbing against your thumb is a non issue left handed. Also I feel the ril system is bet...
