Re: SRS-15 / SRS-13 ?

I was thinking to do the entire Endura family as a Sprint? Which is growing lately with the addition of the P4 and the Endela, and more if you include Wharncliffe's. Plus we've got the Rock Jumper coming this year. Maybe a dark brown? sal I'd buy the Endura, Dragonfly and this would be my first End...

Re: SRS-15 / SRS-13 ?

We have wanted to try it for a long time now. If it's called SRS 13 but performs the same I'd still be in the buying mood. I'd really like an Endura with it. I have a large collection of mules as it is that don't get enough use just because they don't fit quietly into my pocket like my Endura does. ...

Re: Maxamet: Odd behavior. Ideas? Sal?

Excellent photography Rusty Iron. None of us can tell all that much just from images in a forum but we do know a few things in general. Maxamet is not tough nor high edge stability. 30 degrees inclusive is out of my comfort zone for such a high carbide steel at pretty high hardness. Running it thin ...

Re: Rock Jumper Thread

If I was contemplating climbing or any other activity with a person who couldn't be trusted to know when and how to use a knife properly I'd decline to go. If I was likewise going out with a group who didn't trust me with a knife for sure I'd refuse to go even to the store or out to dinner with such...

Re: Can some steels be bad for our health ?

Any powder from grinding or sharpening should be avoided whether it contains cobalt or not. If it is cleaned off before food is cut everything should be fine. I try not to over complicate things too much as life can be complicated enough. IMO, this is one of those things and worrying about cobalt in...

Re: Rusted liners after fresh water clean.

I have found that a good wipe-down with a silicon-gun-cloth on the liners of my k390 P4 is all they need to stay just perfect for me..... Those things are amazingly useful. I have used them for years on knives after starting out using them to clean and protect blued rifles . They are great for clea...

Re: Best Pepper Spray for self-defense?

:) Those put out a lot of the pepper and would overwhelm pretty much everything up to grizzly bear size. She could have done a lot worse than having that for self defense.

Re: Best Pepper Spray for self-defense?

Joe, Sabre makes a pepper spray product that does contain tear gas along with UV dye. Their 3-in-1 spray. Yep, I've seen that. I have no experience with it or Sabre as a company so that is why I haven't ever recommended it. I know the ones I've used are reliable so I feel confident in a recommendat...

Re: Best Pepper Spray for self-defense?

We were issued "First Defense MK-4" 3 ounce cans. It states "average number of 1 second bursts is 19" on the can. We had to go through the training and get sprayed with the stuff and I have plenty of experience using it on humans. It is what it is. If you carry it try to get the training can in the ...

Re: Mule Team

I think it could work for Spyderco, but the more need stories I read about "disgruntled" consumers who pre-order something, then feel entitled to demand that production should meet their demanding and arbitrary expectations, the less I am interested in crowd funding. I'm quite satisfied with what S...

Re: Corona Virus, Chinese Origin, Now In the USA

Also if it were weaponized I bet the mainstream media wouldn't have found out as fast as they did with this one. If this was a bio attack it would go something like this. Day 1: 50 people walk into the hospital by 1100hrs. By 1600hrs there are 200-250 Day 2: 400+ reported people with some already d...

Re: Corona Virus, Chinese Origin, Now In the USA

Between the new virus and what happened to the PRC's swine herds they have had a bad year with virus outbreaks and that must be hugely expensive. On top of the troubles in Hong Kong the leaders have to be getting nervous. They didn't make the mistakes they made with the SARs outbreak a few years bac...

With an R-O of 2-3 it does spread FAST.... I figured it was something like that the way the different countries are reacting. The NORKS closed the borders 2 days ago completely. As much as they rely on imports and currency from the PRC it would have to be bad before they made that decision. Many of...
