Re: The most reliable locking mechanism Spyderco uses?

I'm fond of a well made liner lock. Never had any issues with those on my Spydies (mostly Millies). Easy to get dirt etc out of them which I sometimes have trouble with on my back locks (mostly very dirty Salts). The main reason is ease of use and muscle memory making it fast and safe to unlock and ...

Re: Ideal blade thickness for your EDC folder?

about 2-3mm. The Millie is 4, but tapers pretty well. Can't imagine me breaking it even if it was 3mm

Re: Would you really want LC200N in a non-Salt knife?

I'd like a Military with a LC200N blade since I've had quite a bit of corrosion on S30V while sailing. No issues with the hardware, but ideally that would be adjusted to have better corrosion resistance too so I could treat it almost as badly as I do my Salts :D Are you sure its not a reaction betw...

Re: It just takes the edge right off.

When cutting straps, especially when there's a chance of metal bands, why not just use some wire cutters? Seems like a better tool for the job and it's not hard to carry a small pair of them in your pocket. Or not... I mean, it has kind of been funny reading all your posts with your newfound knife ...

Re: Figured out why I prefer g10 scales

Pocket knives absolutely now have a niche as a kind of man-jewelry. That can't be denied. Lots of people make the claim of "stronger/lighter" for carbon fiber and titanium, but in reality it's only to justify their purchase just as I'm sure a lady has similar justifications for buying the latest $5...

Re: Figured out why I prefer g10 scales

Just like G10 carbon fiber can be made either slick or grippy. It is stiffer and lighter than G10 which is an advantage in some cases.

Re: "Spyderco Scandinavian Survival Knife": Who's in?

There was the Bushcraft. The market is pretty saturated and a carbon steel Mora is something like $4 (stainless about $10) and they are actually pretty good... ;)

Re: Spyderco knife rotation? How many?

Just curious how man knives you guys rotate with and what do you rotate? I’m thinking I need a few more Spydies! I rotate more between different examples of the same model than between different models. So, most days, I could be carrying any one of these Kiwis in my coin pocket... http://paulberett...

Re: Police versus military?

There Military is much better with gloves/mittens (it's cold here in winter), fits my hand better and I prefer the lock over that of the 2 others. Lots of this is subjective (I like the Police, but never got along with the cbbl Manixes) so if you can handle them it would help.

Re: The Spyderrazor

Only experience is with folding European style carbon steel razors like you used Sal so not much input I can add. I'd prefer them in the 5-6/8 sizes and use UF stones when stropping alone doesn't give a good shave. Strop before every use, I have shaved straight from the UF stones, but it gets better...
