Re: Pros, cons and limitations of locktypes, solely referring to CONSTRUCTION and DESIGN of a folder

I have a bit of an issue with the edge going to the handle on a comp lock. And for the ones I have the caribbean is the most notable for this. If you close a complock using the modified backlock technique, and you dont manipulate how much the blade closes with your forefinger (which is the safest an...

Didnt see it on the disco list this year or last years. Is the resilience discoed?

Yeah I was just bored and randomly posting. Should have at least gone through the first post to realize it was Benny in it.
Still very impressive. How often do you see anyone else pull off a legit leg kick against Jackie the man Chan. Benny for his height and weight was world class.

Re: Favorite movie fight scenes

That grosse pointe blank scene also isnt too hollywood. Its almost close to realistic in how a couple of well trained guys might go at it. Its barely a minute. Starts immediately. They both screw up. They both hesitate and try to feel each other out. Ends on the ground with a "weapon". And yes the b...

I didnt read through this thread so I dont know if it was mentioned.

Re: Your Thoughts of an Ideal Companion Blade?

Given fixed blades reign supreme. Even small ones can be harder to easily carry than a folder. Just in terms of the knife not coming open (good) backlocks are known to be the best. A neck knife seems like a really good solution. Just dont accidently drag it into an mri machine. Ive been hinting at a...

Re: Shaman Cru-Wear Sprint Run release ?

Thats surfboard wax. Ive used it for years surfing. I dont think id put it on a knife handle though just because of how it loves to pick up dirt and sand. Id like to see how well it stays clean? This is their drumstick wax, which I think is a different less-tacky formula than their surfboard wax. I...

Re: KnifeCenter CPM-CRUWEAR Native 5 with smooth black G10

I got one of these as well. I like the native 5 design alot for a regular edc knife. I wanted to try out cruwear. I also assumed I would not be able to get the shaman sprint, and it certainly looks like that is still the case. I dont mind smooth g10 in boring black. While there is a difference in tr...

Re: Interest for Cruwear Micarta Manix Backlock?

Id be down. The price needs to be right though. I also missed out on the manix 2 backlock so this would be an oppurtunity. I did buy a black S30V Shaman but that is rare for me. I missed out on the Manix Backlock waiting for a sprint. So far I am also still waiting for a Chief sprint. If the Chief e...

Re: Any plans for a standard-sized Compression Lock Native?

Ha. Maybe this is just a semantics issue. What if they made a native 5 with a compression lock and just called it the lil shaman? Then would everyone be happy?

Re: Any plans for a standard-sized Compression Lock Native?

I agree with your points on the sage 5. Its not quite the same. I too would prefer a straight spine as opposed to a slight thumb ramp. Im also with you on the shaman being amazing. I was actually a bit opposite though. The shaman is perfection for me but I would have preferred if it had a backlock i...

Re: Any plans for a standard-sized Compression Lock Native?

Eh. Id bet good money the blade retention and self close properties of a backlock has prevented more injuries than caused them. (Just in terms of (possibly lower quality) knives staying closed in the pocket over the years) And thats exactly the point in choosing it. Security of the knife staying clo...

Re: Any plans for a standard-sized Compression Lock Native?

Well as someone who prefers backlocks and appreciates the design, I have to say I think the backlock on the native 5 is probably the best example of a standard backlock ive seen. So I certainly wouldnt want it to go anywhere. I dont have a problem if a comp lock was offered but it seems way to close...
