Re: Knives going out of stock in Canada?

Calling all Canadians!!!!!! Below is a link to an actual petition created by a conservative member of parliament. If it gets to 500 signatures it will be discussed in the House of Commons which could lead to the recent CBSA ruling being reversed. Currently this is our best chance at a reversal. So ...

Re: Knives going out of stock in Canada?

Well, I'm glad I went ahead and got my backup Chinook 4 in January.

It's looking unlikely that I will score a Shabaria sprint though, which is a bummer.

Why can't we have nice things?

Re: CBSA going after flipper type opening

Just purchased a backup Chinook 4, from a Canuck dealer. I would have waited, but with everything going on I didn't want to chance the wait and end up without one. Maybe I should bury my spares. I feel like a rebel. I'd still like to chance the border, just to see what happens, but not with a knife ...

Re: CBSA going after flipper type opening

Maybe all us Canadians should just start carrying 6+ inch fixed blades as our EDCs. When people freak out and ask why, I'll just say the powers that be decided my pocket knives were more dangerous. Finally an excuse to EDC my Spyderco Warrior everywhere..... I think this is where we'll all end up g...

Re: CBSA going after flipper type opening

This reminds me of sals Canada knife thread. We are gonna need a knife that can only be opened with two hands, without a Spyder hole, doesn’t lock, has a timed delay where you have to wait five minutes before you can open it... Don't forget the fingerprint identification sensors, and of course the ...

Thanks. If it's teflon I may try to get some bronze to replace them.
I believe the current Opus runs on teflon.

Chinook 4! (My second one) I now have a sense a calmness about the universe.. ;) :spyder:
Nice. I haven't gone for seconds yet, but each day I get close to taking the plunge. Mine has been in my pocket most days since September. Are both of yours good samples?

Schempp Bowie and Chinook 4. Everyone gasped when I pulled out the Bowie to cut a tag off a sweater.

Re: CPM 10V vs. K390 - Patina

10V really is nice stuff. At first I was taking care of it, but now I just treat it the same as I would S30V or VG10. K390 seems to be another beast in this regard.

I'm really hoping we see 10V again. If not in a production knife, at least a sprint run of something like the Military.

CPM 10V vs. K390 - Patina

Howdy, I recently got a Police 4. From what I have read, K390 and CPM 10V are supposed to be essentially the same, however I am finding that my newly acquired K390 steel patina's much more readily than 10V. I have two K2's in 10V. Both just came in the regular bubble bag you see with knives coming f...

Re: Shabaria review

Nice pieces Brj. The Ethnic series actually began with Eduard Bradichansky. I fact I would have to give him credit for the idea of taking a historic or geographic specific design and make a modern folder. A brilliant man. He was a model manker by trade. His "credit Card Knife" was also way out of t...

Re: Police4 FRN ETA

I've never been a big FRN nut, but I think y'all might be onto something here. The Police 4 is a nice knife, and more variations of it are welcome, especially if they can be had for less. I like the dark blue FRN idea. (Still waiting for a nice navy blue G10 sometime.) I'd like to see some nice stai...
