Re: What did you use your Spyderco for last?

I finally found a reasonably priced oem bracelet for my dad’s 1977 Seiko 7009-8079; it was on a sales demo watch with no movement, crown, or clasp. The ends of the bracelet had little boobs of 43 year old adhesive and Velcro tabs to secure it to the display mount. I used the K390 ladybug to cut the...

Re: Victorinox photo and discussion thread!

Re: Two Decades of Great Spyderco Models: What's Your Fav?

Lum Tanto in fixed and folding forms are the platonic ideal of tantos I always loved the Calypso Jr - inexpensive, lightweight, high performance - sure no 4 way clip, no liners, just FRN, but it works and has great ergos Centofante III and the cricket are not talked about often, but survive year aft...

Re: I Tested the Edge Retention of 48 Steels

Has anyone ever done a force vs numbers of cuts with different steels? Would be interesting to see how different steels dull - probably very time consuming

Re: I Tested the Edge Retention of 48 Steels

There's just a handful of of members on that forum who are caught up on the idea that "this one knifemaker has the best heat treat, and x steel will out cut y steel in my experience, so your test is invalid"

I'd be excited to see any future results from these tests

Shawn, Larrin et al, thank you guys

S30V's revenge right here - perhaps the m390's popularity comes from it's edge finish and edge quality on more conventional sharpening media?
