Re: What I want (and a pony)

Spoiler: Santa Clause isn't real! ;) But seriously, the Collector's Club is the subscription service, it's just, super expensive, since you have to commit to taking all the knives that come up in a year (though I believe there are different levels of commitment). As far as the Lil' Native goes, just...

...and there was a fluted Ti Para2 with integral comp lock. I have a pic of it somewhere...
Was that a prototype only, or a custom scale/frame set?

I'd have to get one if it happened, PM2 or Para 3

Re: Jesters on KP's Instagram Feed

I have the Jester Sprint and like it much more than the Ladybug, but I won't lie... a "Manster" (slightly larger Jester) would get me even more fired up than a straight Jester re-issue.

And make mine PE, whatever it finally winds up being!

Re: Anyone prefer manual seats in a car?

I prefer manual everything most of the time. The one thing I prefer to be power are the mirrors, or at least the passenger mirror. The rest I am just fine with being manual. I've had too many window motors fail on me and they're either crazy expensive or a PITA to fix myself. My sentiments exactly!...

Fantastic Customer Service from Knives Plus!

I recently had a knife that was purchased from Knives Plus go missing in the mail, it was a limited run piece and by the time that it was certain the parcel wasn't arriving in a timely fashion the knife had sold through everywhere... I resigned myself to getting a refund or store credit at best, but...

Re: Spyderco Waterway vs Coldsteel Master Hunter 3v

No input on the Waterway, but I own an original Master Hunter in CarbonV and it's more of a small club with an edge than a knife... I prefer their Recon Tanto pattern for my sharpened pry-bar needs ;)

Re: Factory edge poll

"other"

as in; some factory edges are good enough that I leave them unmolested until the knife needs its first serious sharpening, *then* I re-bevel, completely removing the original edge and running it right to the plunge line.

Re: Oxycodone warning

This whole discussion makes me thankful that my tolerance for these drugs is so low and that I hate the way they make me feel. I decided to take the discomfort and skip the pain pills (5/325 hydro/aceta) after my wisdom teeth and then many years later, My gall bladder were removed. Same with my two ...

Re: So when does this forum start speculating about the upcoming discontinued models???

Ahhh the sad taste of regret for all of those Spydies that never quite made it to your buy list and now they're gone!

It would be sad if the Rhino had such a short career, same for the CF Native... I hope you're wrong on those Spydergirl ;)

Re: KnifeCenter CPM-CRUWEAR Native 5 with smooth black G10

This one is my first non-LW Native. I'd been intending to eventually search out a transitional linerless/S35VN example, since I have zero interest in the extra weight of liners, but for the exact same price as S30V I'm psyched to have CruWear! I would have prefered a textured scale, but the smooth G...

Re: Questionable Techno 2 Lockup

I can see what you're talking about, I'd expect that the lock would be safe as long as there is sufficient engagement depth and that it might eventually wear in to fitting better. However, I'd also say that it's an important clearance and that it's out of spec by a fair amount, so a return for adjus...

Re: Problem with Maxamet PM2 from the new run

I don't think it takes more than a few minutes to confirm: "The issue I have is the steel is soft... like to the point I can bend the tip of the blade with my thumb." If confirmed, no need to wait for a battery of tests to determine why, this knife is not going back to the customer. At this point I...
