Re: yet another "price increase"

Being able to afford a good knife is not even a question ..
like someone said the Cara Cara 2 is about as good a knife you could get at great value.

Ain't nobodys bizness how much I choose to indulge buy/pay...so I don't care what the OP said...
in other words back up.

Re: yet another "price increase"

I'm the kinda guy that has come to respect the Glesser family and appreciate the work they do.

That being said...
I expect a "Top Notch Quality" no excuses tolerances fit and finish design snafus should be all good,
I don't want to hear nothing..make it right!!

Then the fair price.. is what it is.

Re: Blade-Play Issues: I want your knowledge, please.

Interesting take on positive blade play.. hmmmm I don't Know, I want to get with it..but for now I will just be a little more open minded on slight blade play. I usually only encounter any blade play when I mess with the pivot screw, because I want drop close as much as possible without a wobbly bla...

52100 patina ???

I"m thinking about the Para 3 exclusive CF 52100 ..
I think I would like some forced patina
..is this the best way to resist rust?
..is it possible to get a patina going without taking the knife apart?
appreciate any observation from experienced with use.

Re: Paramilitary 2 question

I use Blue Lube cleanser every once in awhile it cleans and lubricates,
put some in the pivot area let it sit about 10 minutes.
Start flicking the blade open a few times,
you'll see a little black glob of cleanser and dirt come out...just wipe clean.

Re: Something I do not understand about the Chaparral

I have a Chap Ti one my all time favorites and have no problem with the lock...painful!?...I don't get that. The clip I took off within in the first hour I had it, on impulse because the blue Ti looks so good, I didn't want it to be covered with a clip. I usually never mess with clips I like to leav...

Re: Spydiechef vs Kapara

I was wunderin' how did the Spyder makers mark on the blade come out on these? I have 3 Taichung made Spydercos... bought years apart, and the Spyder is always a little messed up (miscued / uneven) the way they engrave it on the blade over there. I thought it was because of the stonewash on the Tech...

Re: Paramilitary 2 With Wire Clip!

I like wire clips a little better than hour glass,
but the hour glass clip on the PM2 feels like it belongs exactly like it is.
Whenever I try some different clip it completely changes the ergos of the PM2.
Maybe it's just that I'm so use to it afters years.

I love back locks maybe my favorite, I can flick easily with my thumb and I have gotten so use to the Spydie drop it just comes very natural to me I don't even think about it. My most enjoyable knives are Titanium back locks such as Chaparral and Native... both very good looking and built to last lo...

Re: CTS XHP

Of course both s35vn and the XHP are very good.
But I just saw some nice looking graphics analyzing steels by all significant factors,
and XHP scored very high end as an all around blade steel.
I have a couple of knives with XHP I think it holds an edge very well.
