Re: Wharncliffe Delica interest

I like Sheepsfoot and Wharncliffe blades very much. The Delica doesn’t move the needle much for me. I think the Wharncliffe Endura looks like a great knife for working with rope.

You would prefer a Button Compression Lock on Sage? To an integral?

sal
My very favorite lock (kind of like picking a favorite child, very difficult) is the button comp lock on my Smock. I would love to see a Sage with either the button comp lock or a CBBL like the one on the Manix.

Re: How many knives do you typically carry?

I always have 2. Roadie on my keychain and a folder right front pocket. Other keychain (2nd car) has a Leatherman mini tool on it. Chores around the house it’s the folder and a Leatherman either an old style Wave or a Skeletool with the upgraded blade steel.

Re: H-1 is subpar???

I’m going to commit sacrilege here and suggest another maker. David Boye, the inventor of the Boye dent used on so many Spyderco knives makes folders in a cast dendritic Cobalt alloy. The knives have titanium marlin spikes and are small (3 inch blade), backlocks and have great edge retention. Cobalt...

Re: Factory Second Sale GAW!

Thanks and I’m in! Very kind of you. I couldn’t make it to the sale this year but I can confirm it’s ability to destroy a budget! So many cool knives and too little moneys.

Re: Dear Sal, a question about that floating stop pin..

Amen! I have often in life had an insight that was brilliant, after I’d been doing something the hard way for years. Be interested in Sal’s answer to this.

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...

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: 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.
