Re: COFFEE: Who Drinks The REAL Stuff? Gourmet Beans too?

I drink it black. The way God intended. I have been known to use Irish whiskey or Rum as a sweetener but day in and day out two cups every morning, black. I have tried French Press, drip, percolator, cold brew, Moka pot and cheap and fancy pour over setups. It’s pour over for me, preferably with est...

Re: What MLB players should be in the HF but aren’t?

Pete agreed to a lifetime ban because the commissioner at the time had information that Pete knew would destroy his reputation. He agreed to the ban. While the other parties were alive he kept a low profile. When Bart Giammatti was long gone and the PI he hired passed away Pete re-opened his campaig...

Military, Manix 2, Stretch. I’d like a Catcherman in PE, unlike everyone else.

Re: The kapara for a millie

I think I would do that deal. If I wanted the Kapara. I do. I wouldn’t trade a desirable Sprint run Millie, but one of the S30V models or even an S110V, since I could replace it, sure.

Re: Caribbean vs Military

Check out the cutting test in this review. https://knifeinformer.com/spyderco-military-s110v-review/ I own 2 Millies and I love the knife. I can’t bring myself to purchase the Caribbean because it is butt ugly. Everything else, steel, lock, blade shape is right up my alley and the knife will go to t...

Re: H1 Steel - How it Works

Thanks Larrin! I’m very curious to see if you or anyone else can better explain or possibly debunk serrated edge behavior with H1. Also will you be able to determine if the edge of an H1 blades hardness changes with “work”? Assuming that work is slicing or cutting with said edge.

Re: Can We Please Have a PM2 with CBBL or a Pin and Springs Lock?

Amen to that. Wish the Superleaf was available in a sprint run with S90V, S35VN, or LC200N. That would be perfect. In the meantime the Manix is the knife the original poster is describing. The CBBL is just better than the Axis lock and the Manix is available in FRCP with several steel choices. There...

Re: LC200N Aqua Salt Remake: Who would be interested?

Good point! I assume Bloke means we already have this knife. If not is there a market for the Aqua Salt? It was discontinued already.

Re: The Spyderco Earth- a knife made from 100% recycled materials

Great idea! While it has appeal the devil will be in the details. I’m guessing quality control would be a barrier and there could be liability issues in the event of any kind of problem.
All the negativity aside I would love to see this happen.

Re: Poll: more CBBL

Yes! More CBBL, in a variety of sizes, blade shapes and more. I think it’s perfect as is in the Manix as a hard use folder. I would like to see a gent’s folder in the 2.5 to 3.0 inch range. I would also be interested in a large (K2, Chinook, Tatanka) folder with a stout blade.

Re: Tuff Love - Any Hope of a Sprint Run?

I’d be interested in a Sprint Run, especially with the prototype titanium tooling. My only Schempp design knife is a Bowie and it’s a great knife. I would be interested in any Ed Schempp designs after buying the Bowie just so I could get it signed at the SFO sale last year. In hand that knife is exc...

Re: What types of colors of FRN do you prefer?

I really like FRCP better. The scales on my Manix LW are nicer than the FRN to me. Having said that the British racing green on the ZDP 189 knives is a good color.

Re: Given that VG10 / S30V are 100% rustproof enough for me - is there still a reason for LC 200 N?

LC 200N is easy to sharpen on the Sharpmaker and in a FFG like the Spydiechef is a superb slicer. I love some of my knives in VG 10 for the design, the ergonomics, like the Cook’s knife and the Superleaf, but not for the steel. Nothing wrong with VG 10, but it’s not exciting either. My Spydiechef on...

Re: Mulling over the Mule

Too many variables to answer yes. I could be interested in a locking folder if it was not a back lock and the scales were removable/exchangeable. Similar to TRM selling scales from the factory. Then it would depend on the steel. Doesn’t have to be stainless or exotic. Have to be a step up from VG 10.

Re: Multiple edc

Roadie on the keychain. Dragonfly in the watch pocket. Smock in the right front. Or a PM2, Spydiechef, Manix2 or similar right front pocket. If a Military it’s right rear pocket instead. Never 2 folders in the same pocket. If I’m carrying a Leatherman I only carry 1 knife.
