I'll post some pics when I get off duty tomorrow and get home. Assuming I can photograph it properly. Discoloration is very subtle.

Re: ZDP for EDC questions

I'd love to see photos of the ZDP patina if you have time and are able. Thanks for your input on this knife and steel. I have a ZDP Delica I've had for at least 5years. With CBN rods thinning out the edge is no big deal. Incredible edge retention and no issues with rust. Very slight patina though no...

Re: ZDP for EDC questions

Thanks for passing this along Spoon! From what I read, it seems like you experienced chipping in the edge after you patina'd the blade in apple cider vinegar correct? If that's the case, you still think you will go that route again? I'm very familiar with vinegar baths for knives and I love a patina...

Re: ZDP-189 - Overrated or Super Steel?

Jazz (or anyone for that matter!) do you have any pics of your ZDP knives with patinas? I'd love to see what they look like. Thanks man! I find ZDP just patinas lightly, and looks fantastic. I like the steel, and hope for a ZDP Delica wharnie, and K390, while we're at it. Not being a steel snob, I a...

Re: ZDP for EDC questions

Thanks for the input Wartstein! Still not 100% but like I said I'm definitely leaning that way. Something different than what I've had in the past and I dig the green FRN scales. Since you are not worried about sharpening ZDP my input is not of too much worth. But still: I sold my ZDP Endura and set...

ZDP for EDC questions

Hey folks. I am going to try a little one knife experiment this year and I'm almost done selling everything off to fund the knife I'm going to use. I have decided that I'm going to go with the good ol' Delica for this and am leaning heavily towards the ZDP version. I have a Sharpmaker and other ston...

Re: Manbug Salt/ Ladybug Hawkbill Salt comparison

Well one week in and the hawkbill Ladybug taken over my pocket. Manbug has been ignored completely. Trying out a little lanyard for right now. I like it so far. Something special about this little knife. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48997879073_34671eb1f9_b.jpg Untitled by Six Pound Cat , on ...

Re: Manbug Salt/ Ladybug Hawkbill Salt comparison

The Ladybug hawkbill is ground thinner than the Dragonfly though right? The Manbug salt is definitely quite a bit thicker than the Ladybug. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48971662226_e454761af7_b.jpg Untitled by Six Pound Cat , on Flickr If I could only have one of these I'd probably go for the...

Re: Manbug Salt/ Ladybug Hawkbill Salt comparison

The Ladybug hawkbill is ground thinner than the Dragonfly though right? If I could only have one of these I'd probably go for the Ladybug, but I'd definitely choose the Dragonfly Salt over either. These two (especially the Manbug) are ground so thick that they don't slice near as well as the Dragonf...

Re: Manbug Salt/ Ladybug Hawkbill Salt comparison

Another observation. The more mellow serrations on the Ladybug seem to me to be optimal for every day cutting. Just enough tooth to make the serrations worthwhile, but not aggressive enough to cause any of the snagging issues that seem to turn some people off to SE in the first place. Also the Ladyb...

Re: Manbug Salt/ Ladybug Hawkbill Salt comparison

Thought I'd change the title since this is ending up more of a comparison thread. I'm going to try to not rush to any judgments here so I'm going to carry the Ladybug for the next few days to get a feel for it. It feels oddly solid and good in the hand despite its tiny size. https://live.staticflick...

Re: Manbug Salt, Revisited

Here you go sir. From the pictures it doesn't appear that they are that much different size wise. But in hand the ladybug is noticeably smaller. The texturing on the Manbug is bigger and deeper giving it a grippier feel, and it's just that much more hand filling. My initial thought is that I like th...

Re: Manbug Salt, Revisited

Ahhhhh, there it is! Mine arrives tomorrow and originally I had planned on comparing it with the Manbug and keeping the one I like best, But, since I have an itchy Dremel finger, I guess I'll be keeping the Manbug regardless. I've always been a small knife guy and then more recently became a serrate...

Manbug Salt/ Ladybug Hawkbill Salt comparison

I tried the Manbug Salt a while back, but I didn't really give it a fair shake due to my love of SE Dragonfly Salt that it was sharing time with. This time around, there is no Dragonfly since I sold it off to help fund other knives. (I will %100 get another Dragonfly Salt in the future.) Anywho, aft...

Re: The Wire Clip: express your love, hate, indifference

LOVE THE WIRE CLIP. Well I should say that I love it on the Dragonfly and would love to try one on a Lady\Manbug. I blue Loctite mine on so it doesn't move and I'm good to go. Waistband or pocket carry is good to go. Have had people ask why I have a paperclip attached to shorts in the past. Ha.
