Re: The Walker 2.0

I would also like to see a new Walker and Starmate. CF and a premium steel, black wire clip like the Schempp Bowie.

Re: Removing Patina from K390 (Urban)

Just as a side note oxalic acid is great for cleaning rust off of glass. I have used it for years for cleaning insulators. I think I bought some labeled as wood bleach. I would use caution when applying it but I can vouch for the efficacy of Bar Keepers friend in shining up stainless steel.

Very cool! Do you have anything else lined up? I hope you share it too. This one was fascinating and it turned out great.

Re: Sharpening choils - Why?

The choil cut in the Smock by Alistair Phillips was 3 mm. That’s not much edge to lose really. In terms of aesthetics I am indifferent to a sharpening choil but I am all in on things that make sharpening easier. I think the choil falls into that category.

Re: Which Spyderco Haunts You Most?

Something about the Starmate C55 and the Michael Walker C22 among the older ones. More recently the K2 and the Slyscz Bowie. Time and $$$ permitting I would acquire all 4. I didn’t pre-order my Smock in timely fashion so I’m waiting on that one.

Re: [HELP NEEDED] Advice on Customizing Para 3

I like the look in the photo. I don’t think the Lynch clip finish looks like stone/acid wash but you could stonewash it fairly easily. Good luck with your project and post some pics as it progresses!

Re: New Metal/Alloy and other technology news for you all.

That’s a better story but in my version you were more of a badass! Do you as a former auditor think that the audit trail in aerospace is useful and necessary? I work in a heavily regulated industry with tons of red tape. Sometimes the regulations seem a little much.

Re: Poverty: Can this spectre be ended by man?

I’d like to believe it could be ended. I think if more people had access to opportunity and education on a level playing field the percentage of the population in poverty would be reduced to a minimum. Recently some smart people have been trying some new things to reduce poverty. Micro loans, and gr...

Re: Anyone else have an edc that you didn’t expect?

I was never going to buy an Ed Schempp design. Then I met him at the factory seconds sale and the Bowie was on sale. So cool to have him sign the blade. Then I carried it for a while and I love the negative blade angle and the way you can choke up on that handle with those brass bolsters. So yeah I ...

Re: Pm2 vs Manix 2

I’m a Manix 2 person. At least today. I do carry my Manixes more than my PM2’s and I like the lock and the blade shape better on the Manix. I like both of these more than most of the rest of the knives on the market.

Re: New Metal/Alloy and other technology news for you all.

I hadn’t thought of that but it’s the audit trail for stuff your going to fly that adds a lot of that cost. Every bolt, nut, screw and any other part gets tracked from production to installation in an airplane or orbital vehicle. I wouldn’t buy a $1,000.00 knife from an aerospace company, or an airp...

Sure they could. Should they though? I think focus is a hallmark of successful companies. Why add knives to aerospace and lose focus?

Re: David Boye Cobalt Knives: any thoughts?

Hey guys, I posted elsewhere in the Off topic section about David Boye knives and I am a proud owner of the pointed blade folder ( a factory second) which I got a pretty good deal on. Around $132.00 when the Boye knives website had a sale. The knife is well made, finish is not quite as good as Golde...
