Re: Upcoming flat-ground Rescue 3!

I’ll tell you, you can’t go wrong with the Delica wharncliffe at all. I don’t just say that. I use it a lot, every day at work, since they came out. No other knife can even come close to it as a work knife, in my opinion. Hmm, but will the upcoming wharncliffe Endura be better for my purposes? Pret...

Re: Most efficient everyday cutting chore blade shape, grind, and thickness?

I thought I was the only one! Ha, definitely not the only one. I'm very picky about ergos, and it can be tricky to find ones that work with my hands. So many cool knives Ive had to pass up, because of that... I'm pretty happy with my current set of knives though. I hear what people say about the be...

Re: POLL: Would you buy a sheepsfoot PM2?

If the blade looks like the semi-sheepsfoot leaf-shaped one on the Pac Salt? No

If the blade is a real sheepsfoot like the one on the Rescue, or something similar to the one on the upcoming Smock? Yes, but only if they make it with an FRN handle

Embry's knife photos

Hey guys, what's up. My old photo thread was solely dedicated to my Native 5s but I've branched out a bit since then...

So here's a new one.

Re: Endura Wharncliffe

I’d be happy with bright orange and VG10! If they don't end up making one, you can buy a black wharnie Endura and an orange leaf-shaped Endura, swap the blades, and sell the extra knife again. Kind of a roundabout way of doing it, but it's definitely worth it to get the knife you want :) I did that...

Re: Most efficient everyday cutting chore blade shape, grind, and thickness?

....... .....Too much belly means that materials tend to slip off the end of the knife before being cut. .. LONG blades are important. 3.5 inches is about my minimum these days. Too much shorter and the materials just slip off the end before I can really get a good slice through them. Serrations ar...

Re: Upcoming flat-ground Rescue 3!

@ The Meat man: That is an awesome deal... but my knife fund is entirely depleted due to some health issues my cat had, which took all my savings. Maybe if it's still going on in a few weeks I'll buy some though, thank you! @ The Deacon: Luckily for me, I like serrations on this knife, and probably ...

Re: Most efficient everyday cutting chore blade shape, grind, and thickness?

Some points that make a good EDC knife blade shape, in my experience and for my uses: After some experience with both needle-pointed knives (Endura 3) and very broad-pointed knives (sheepsfoot Rescues) as well as some knives in the middle (Endura 4, Native 5), I've come to the conclusion that the on...

Re: Dynamic Duo

I love the look of the old Stretch. Unfortunately the newer model does not fit my hands at all and the older model is on eBay and expensive and I'm hesitant about buying something before getting to handle it.

Very cool knives you got there, anyway! Even have matching colors, super nice :)

Re: questions about serrated blades...

To sharpen serrations you need triangular rods, according to what I've read here (don't have any sharpening equipment of my own yet). The black DLC coating on the Native is fantastic. If it ever looks like you've scratched it, then it's likely just the material that scraped against it leaving a trai...

Re: Help ID this knife, Police?

Hello and welcome! That is definitely an old Police model. G-2 steel was used by Spyderco sometime around the timeframe you describe, and I think the very old Police models did not have the rivets. Also, in the olden days, there were less counterfeiters making fake Spyderco products. And I don't see...

Realized I love sheepsfoot blades and that I prefer longer knives.
