Re: Siren v/s Spydiechef

....I'm wanting to add another knife that can double as a larger EDC option as well as give me the benefits of super rust resistance for when I'm at the lake.... Hi Grizz, I have to admit up front, I'm biased. That said, what you're looking for matches Lance's design intentions for the Siren really...

Re: Super Bowl...who will win?

Joe Montana was and still is my favorite quarterback of all time. Growing up, I was a 49'rs fan until they decided not to take Joe back when he was healthy again. At that point I became a Chief's fan and have been ever since. I'm loving that it's my "old" team against my current team! Go CHIEFS!

Re: Production LC200N

Yes I'd also like to see a comparison between SE H1 and SE LC200N. PE LC200N is not on the same level as S30V in my experience. I value Lance/Surfingringo's assessments and opinions, however I think fine edge dulling from being in a coastal environment my have been a factor in his rating of PE LC20...

Re: FedEx

Hi Darby. I would have to agree with The Deacon and Ankerson, in that I have had great results with USPS and have taken to using them as my go to option for all knife shipping these days. I also completely agree with you and Evil D about Darn Tough socks (Smart Wool too for that matter). They are ex...

Re: Hardness vs Toughness vs Strength

..Well, I would've assumed that, but while reading about it earlier, I found several metallurgy sites that defined hardness as "a material's ability to hold together when friction is applied." In other words, wear resistance. Edit: when I think of hardness in laymans terms, I think "how much pressu...

Re: List of available knife steels not yet used by Spyderco for sales

Vanax Mules have been produced for testing. I do not know how the price negotiations are going, but Sal has said that samples have been made and tested. Quote from the Vanax Mule thread... "We made a mule for testing which I am doing now in the kitchen and outside. We also made some CATRA mules whic...

... That's what you get when using an old hotplate :D
If you weren't already thinking about it, I'd suggest a cheap toaster oven for heating your Kydex. I have an old cheap one mounted in my garage that I've been using exclusively for kydex for over 3 years now. :) Works great!

Re: Mule Team

No just set it on a small stand and moved on to the next. I made a small jig for Kydex and have a sheath made for about 10 mules of various colors but have only purchased MT leather sheaths for the "nicer" scale material. I'll try leather before long once I learn more and purchase the correct tools...

Re: Stuff you made

I love seeing all the things you all are making! I find that anytime I talk with someone that likes making things (anything), we tend to have many things in common. I refer to people like myself that like to make things as having the "maker gene". These days I spend most of my time making knives and...

Re: APB for FarNorthDan

I've been wondering about FarnorthDan for a while now as well. I sent him a Mule with a custom handle a couple years ago, so I have his address but unfortunately I don't have an email or phone number for him. He was one of my favorite contributors. I hope he's doing well. I sure hope we hear from hi...

Re: Hey Sal, any chance of a Vanax SC mule??

Latest Vanax project... It was a pleasure to have had the opportunity to make a Vanax version of your Waterway design. It's a great design and I think the Vanax compliments it perfectly. :) I hope you enjoy your new knife. :) That is a supremely beautiful blade. Thank you. :) .. Chad, words fail me...

Re: Behind the edge database!

My Waterway came in at - 3.03mm/0.119" spine (in front of plunge line 0.62mm/.023" BTE averaged from three readings. This one caught my attention because I recently made a custom Vanax Waterway for Lance, and to do that I had to carefully study the dimensional measurements of the Spyderco version. ...
