Re: What did you use your Spyderco for last?

I used my Millie to take a chunk out of the wood floor in my kitchen yesterday... after opening a box containing my new vintage #3 Favorite Piqua skillet. I fumbled the knife while closing one handed... :( knife seems fine.

Millie: 1, floor: 0

I’ve not heard the term “drivers hat” before. My dad called them cheese cutters :D

Re: Spyderco Military and Paramilitary 2 upcoming sprints and exclusives

Eric said he was going to fit it into the Queue for US production. Will still be a while though as we're pretty backed up.

Re: They're everywhere!

M4 was my intro to “exotic” steels, and I still have much more time with it than either K390 or REX45. I sharpen on ceramic rods/stones, though I reprofile on CBN rods. Order of difficulty in my limited experience sharpening all 3 is M4 -> REX45 -> K390. K390 edge holding is better than either of th...

Re: Permanent damage that you've actually done to a knife?

You know I saw the comment about "if you have the right tool for the job, you'll never break it". That is entirely true and some genuine wisdom for sure. Words well spoken. Someone else once said that experience is proportional to the amount of ruined equipment you have left behind. This is only tr...

Re: Permanent damage that you've actually done to a knife?

Yep. M4 > M2. M2 is as good as it ever was, but the constant march of higher spec steel leaves perfectly capable steels in the dust. I’m guilty of chasing a spec too, as long as the sharpening’s good ;)

Re: Permanent damage that you've actually done to a knife?

I learned the loaner lesson with a Benchmade auto. Loanee cut through wire ties on a child’s toy; I thought they were just zip ties. Big chip, lots of time on the stones to repair. Now I just say NO! I’ve busted fine tips off, but quit misusing knives this way some time ago :D I dropped my first Spy...

Re: K390 IS "The M4 Killer"

I am quite happy with cruwear. It is so easy to get great results sharpening with ceramics. I have the ladybug in K390 and reprofiling to 15dps was a real chore. The steel seems to perform well, but it’s the most work I ever want to put into sharpening. I do not want to get into new sharpening gear...

The Vicky is the lightest option, and the least expensive to replace.
