Re: KnifeCenter Exclusive CPM-Cruwear Paramilitary 2

Has anyone noticed the difference in the way the plunge line is ground between this run and the grey G10? Here's a comparison shot. Smooth G10 model is mine. Grey G10 pic borrowed from forum member Tabo. I really like the change. It feels smoother on the thumb when opening, and I think it looks bett...

Re: KnifeCenter Exclusive CPM-Cruwear Paramilitary 2

I'd be more interested in a coarser finish as well, possibly similar to what 40 grit sandpaper would do. I'm almost tempted to try it.... 2 directions, perpendicular, essentially making an "X" on each scale, and then very lightly hitting it with 2000-3000 grit to take the bite off any existing g10 ...

Re: VTOKU Sprint Run

Put my Delica to good use for the first time yesterday. I had to trim down a ceiling tile to replace one my cat destroyed. Cats are crazy. I only cut about 2 feet worth of the stuff and it absolutely wrecked the edge. Didn't realize until after the fact that they have insulation in them. Fiberglass ...

Just got word back from DLT and wow what a great price on this

From DLT:

I think pricing will be around $130-135.
Wow. That's cheaper than a stock vanilla PM2.

Re: Cruwear Paramillie 2 Exclusive Fun ! ;-)

Nemo, how do you like those smooth G10 scales? I too am a big fan of the 52100, and I really like the peel ply CF on it. So given my love of non-stainless steel and the praise Cruwear gets from this community, I’m very tempted to try out this exclusive, but I think the scales look a little pedestri...

Re: CPM REX 45 | Edge Performance

Thanks for that analysis and testing! Do you have a Cruwear blade you could test REX 45 against? I would really like to see how the two compare. Yes, however I chose M4 because I felt the chemistry was closer and people have a better feel for how M4 behaves. I really like the Para 3, it's very exci...

Re: The Delica Always Creeping In

This is exactly my experience as well. I always try out PM2's, Militaries, etc. because they are more fun to flick and have exotic steels, but when it comes to actually using the knife for my daily tasks nothing can beat the Delica. How can I choose a $60 knife over knives 2 to 3 times as expensive?...

Both of mine have blemishes:
Both of mine had this too, but much larger areas. It went away after handling them for a few minutes. It’s like the G10 was dried out or something and skin oil made it return to black.
