Re: Discussion: What do you think is the best size for an EDC folder?

Perhaps I should have phrased my sentiment about this situation differently. Or not comment at all. Look, I wasn't there. Who knows what happened before or off camera. I will say this. Neither of them were prepared for the situation they have put themselves in. They locked themselves in a store with...

Re: How was your 2019?

Much lighter than previous years. Also scored Spyderco bench stones. Shaman Cruwear should have been on here. https://i.imgur.com/r1tVNn2h.jpg https://i.imgur.com/xB9OU90h.jpg https://i.imgur.com/PxHFwLJh.jpg https://i.imgur.com/6IaiB1Th.jpg https://i.imgur.com/MieGLxxh.jpg https://i.imgur.com/HHnH9...

Re: Ikuchi

Love it! Taking a brand new knife apart, whether to learn, examine, fine tune, mod, all good.

Re: Ikuchi

Is yours pre or post CQI? Post CQI. It's from the most recent batch at DLT. Has the PB washers and drops shut. Now thst I've got the trick of the flip, I think I'm really going to enjoy this one. Pre-CQI had PB washers, and mine dropped shut. The only way to know (other than marking on box, which I...

Re: K390 PM2 | Testing

I pretty much subject every new knife to similar cutting tasks. I like to compare their wear resistance (by no means a controlled experiment) of the factory edge. Couple of cardboard boxes, little bit of oak or walnut whittling, some pallet decorating :D . Then take it to a sheet of phone book paper...

Re: Discussion: What do you think is the best size for an EDC folder?

As I regularly cycle through the different sized knives in my collection, any of them could be an EDC for extended period of time. With my current needs and uses of knives, no problem - Chaparral to Military, and bunch in between. That said, 3-3.5" cutting edge is a sweet spot for me. It has been fo...

Re: CPM M4 vs K390

M4 cuts better. I only say that cause I don't have k390. I care more about knife design than which steel it has. Thought part of the knife enjoyment and experience was sharpening it? Wouldn't have to do that if it was a super magic steel that never dulls... In a way I feel fortunate that I favorite...

Re: What Spyderco is in your pocket today??

These scales are a trip. Depending on the type of light, sun, shade, color of the background, etc., they take on a different color. The texturing probably helps in diffracting the light. I have seen them look shades of beige, gray, and the advertised ranger green. Anyways, stoked to have this steel ...

Re: SE Shaman or Caribbean?

I don't have either, but held them both at SFO, and the Shaman on one other separate occasion. Independent of the edge type, two things I remember specifically based on my brief encounter. Even with the the extra weight, the Shaman felt smaller than I expected. On the other hand, the Caribbean felt ...

Re: Anyone else hoping for a BBS exclusive Military in k390?

This was a yes for me, until the announcement of the new Military Sal is prototyping. One of my favorite steels, but having three Military knives already, I will wait for the new one.

Re: contouring g10 scales

I used Dremel sanding drum to take off bulk of the material. To finish it off, I clamped the scale in a vise, and used sandpaper (and water to keep the dust down) to smooth it all out. This is getting me excited to do another one of my PM2s. This weekend. I wanted to do a Military, but a PM2 needs i...

Re: Shaman Cru-Wear Sprint Run release ?

No luck here either. Like SG said, first time I was not able to get a knife I wanted. Spent more time trying then any other.

Re: Your favorite sprint/exclusive released after join-date PLUS BONUS QUESTION

Two months after I joined, this was my first Military and my first exclusive. It changed my perception about large folders.
