Re: What do you want in a new Salt knife?

I don’t swim or exercise with knives, wear them in my waist band and I don’t sweat at work so corrosion resistance isn’t a prerequisite in a pocket knife. The three Salt Series folders I currently own serve all my needs exceptionally well and I’d replace any I lost. Had I not developed a phobia of s...

Re: The perceived need for instantaneous one hand operation has driven folding knife design into a dead end

There! Now this post has officially taken this thread to the level of the ridiculous! :D Jim Ah, hahaha, ah, hahaha, ah, hahaha! ;) Hey Jim, funniest of all, mate, is you're probably not too far from the truth. Best of all, I'll likely be in the ground by then and won't have to worry about all my k...

Re: New here & just bought 3 knives

Welcome to the Forum, Blackpearl! :)

I don't think you could go wrong with any Spyderco knife but I'd strongly recommend you try a little serrated edge, hawkbill, Ladybug Salt. It's an exceptional little knife and as handy as knives get. ;)

Re: The perceived need for instantaneous one hand operation has driven folding knife design into a dead end

I wonder what more can actually be done to innovate and revolutionise knife design? How strong do locks in folders actually need to be? How much easier to open can a folder be made? Are custom heat coloured titanium clips better than a simple wire clip? Are petrified mammoth tusk scales that much be...

Michael, love your work! With any luck, brothers Wartstein, Surfingringo, Vivi ... will chime in. They can open and close folders 100 different ways with just one finger and blindfolded in under a second! Hopefully they'll post some instructional clips too! :p Ah, hahaha, ah, hahaha, ah, hahaha!

Re: New Members

As someone who has been around for a while and who has a pretty high post count I can say that Spyderco doesn’t owe me anything and I don’t care how they run this forum or their contests. I am just happy that they host this forum and do giveaways. They have always appeared to act with integrity so ...

Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra playing the symphonies of Beethoven. Hey Connor, beloved wife is a Classical Music buff and that's what she listens to in her vehicle.

Re: kme vs sharpmaker

I too use a Hapstone and a SharpMaker like Sharp Guy, with one small exception. I reprofile pocket knives under 30° inclusive and use the SharpMaker to touch up at the 30° setting. I don't own or have even handled a KME but after persevering with a Lansky for over a decade I won't go back to any sha...

Re: Buying my first PM2: S30V or S110V?

I'd say buy the knife you fancy most. ;)

If you're only cutting tape to open packages and playing with the knife you probably won't ever need to sharpen either S30V or S110V. :)

Re: Showing how much a butcher sharpens steel off a blade

Andy, it might be an Aussie thing cause they look like nearly everyone else’s knives here. Ah, hahaha!

Though I never seem to have mine long enough to get that thin. All my mates and family seem to like sharp boning and fillet knives. :rolleyes:

Re: Flesh Eating Bacteria in Australia? Where Else?

I don’t know of a flesh eating bacteria here though I don’t doubt it exists.

We have a White Tail Spider here that causes some sort of necrosis if it bites you. I don’t want to post horrible pics here but if anyone’s interest you can google White Tail Spider bites. :eek:
