Re: Beginner edc (pm2 or manix 2 family)

M390. Almost went with the S110V, but changed my mind before I hit the submit button.

Re: Gift of Spyderco

That is a cool story, OP. Gave my best friend a fixed blade almost 25 years ago. Nothing special compare to the knives I know and have today. But to this day, he has it with him every camping trip we go on. Last year gave him my Manix 2 LW. Didn't have a need for it, so why not. Couple months later ...

Re: Beginner edc (pm2 or manix 2 family)

PM2. The only one I am considering getting a second one of. Actually it's a done deal. Logging on to ... right now to pull the trigger.

Re: Red loctite

Others do have a need. Whether it is to replace a clip, adjust pivot action ( which sometimes requires adjusting stop pin), and blade centering. Still others, like me, get the knives wet, bloody, sandy, etc. by using them out in the field. Clean and tune makes these tools work better and last longer...

Re: Anyone see Apostle P's rant on Spyderco?

I, on the other hand, have a need to take some of my knives apart frequently.

Depends on how you use them...

Re: This is why I don't get the hype for edge retention

I don't know about hype... But when I sharpen my blades and do the thumb test, they are so sticky sharp (to use someone else's phrase) that they leave small laserations on my skin as soon as I touch the edge. Enough to mess with the touch ID on my iphone. :o Time to use different fingers or program ...

I totally agree. I don't own one, but handled one while back.

I'm just saying, Military is a great interim solution to the 'I want a Police 4' dilemma.

Re: Large Spyderco

Another vote for Military. You won't be disappointed. Get the Police when it comes out.

I was the debating the same thing not too long ago. Very happy with Getting the Military now. Who knows when the Police will be out.

Re: Another Military Thread

I agree with the S30V assessment. Besides, the price for 'upgrade' steel on the Military is much lower than upgrade on something like the Native, or even PM2. In terms of % difference compare to base model.

Re: Another Military Thread

No reason not to have one, now. The Military had some minor updates recently, so not sure what the likelihood of something new coming.
