Anyone from or moved to Alaska?

I've been kicking this idea of trying to move out there around. Maybe this isn't the best place to ask, but I like the community here so maybe someone has answers. If you're from or have moved there, what are the actual struggles? Regrets? Little annoyances that make life difficult? What makes you w...

Hap40 vs zdp189 vs k390

I'm considering picking up an endura in hap40, but already have a police in k390 and haven't tried zdp at all. So I ask: If you have or had both, is the endura too close to the police that you find them to essentially overlap? And how do the steels compare in use or in theory? (Meaning in theory one...

Anyone prefer manual seats in a car?

Power seats annoy me. I'm in a place where leaning the seat back and taking a nap is not out of the question. Now I have a car with power seats and it's push the button and......wait.... Time to go? Push the button...and...wait... Silly topic and more just a random complaint than anything but still....

What's next for the Sage?

So the sage 5 lw is in the works. What do you suppose would be next for the project? Stop lock? Q ball? Some kind of button? Slipjoint??

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

Kind of curious, what methods of brewing does everyone prefer? I use a little glass pour over one mostly but I really want to try a siphon. Mostly because it looks neat.

Re: Why does tooling get destroyed?

It's all about eliminating waste. Tools, molds, dies, etc for a discontinued product aren't producing any value. Even if it doesn't take up much space, that's still space that could be used for something that is adding value.

I once had to abandon a sog flash II in an airport trashcan. Hate to hear similar fates. Did you find it by chance?

Bbs pm2. I think I'm too attached to the blue and that if I part with it it'd be difficult to get another.

See if I did the photo right, but if not Ace Biblio with green micarta! New to me so still deciding how I feel on it. Do like having the jimping in the middle of the blade but also kind of wish it was continuous to there.

How many wharnecliffe spydies have there been?

The question came up elsewhere, and thought I'd ask here. I could think of these.

Yojimbo, ronin, dragonfly, delica, endura, salt 2, McBee, equilibrium, gb air, urban, centofante, spydiecard, dogtag folder, swick, and q ball.

More than I realized, but what are the others?

Benchmade/worksharp edge maintenance tool

Thoughts? I like the idea of a light system with some kind of angle helper, the strop, clip and plastic casing (should keep the stone in one piece) are just a bonus. That said, I'm still deciding if I'd actually want to carry it much.

Re: K390 and M390 in Seki

What I'm curious about now is if there will be more m390s out of seki now, depending on how much steel had to be purchased to make it worth it.

Re: Why Doesn't Spyderco Use the Military Handle More?

For me the egg shape in the middle of the handle is what makes it. The military has the best feeling handle of any folder I've picked up. The runner up for me is actually the sliverax. The pm2 has a similar shape of course but it feels crowded for my hand. I'd think a different blade shape in the sa...

Re: Poll: more CBBL

Don't forget the pkal. It shows that the cbbl can fit in smaller designs, it's just a question of what trade offs were made to do so.

Re: Spyderco's Unique & One Of A Kind Sharpening Tools?

Just to add to the goldenstone love. It's probably the most unique (and still useful) sharpening tool I've come across. The curvature on the edge is perfect for serrations as well. The ceramic files are pretty great too. I really like the slip or tear drop one, again I've not come across anything el...

Re: Thanks a lot Dan. Sliverax

The one's I've seen that had the flipper removed looked just as good. I epoxied a "button" to the compression lock tab of mine to make it very easy to operate left handed. If I had to keep only one, sentimental value aside, there's a very high chance it'd be the sliverax.
