Re: Spyderco Lock Type Preference

Whilst I voted for the Walker liner lock (being the lock type my spreadsheet tells me I carry most), the lock type isn't driving the decision I make when I choose a knife for the day. It is probably the least important consideration for me. I carry non-locking knives quite regularly and use them wit...

Re: War memoir recommendations, please.

... I have seen some of the Rhodesian war strange armoured vehicles at shows and recall a Rhodesian family coming to my school in the U.K. in the 70’s, fleeing the terror. All the more interesting for being about a forgotten war for a forgotten country. There are a few good books on the Rhodesian c...

Re: Discontinued List 2021 Speculation Thread

I am pleasantly surprised every year that the Centofante 3 doesn’t get disco’d. It’s been in the catalogue for a very long time so it must sell okay but apparently not well enough to justify any CQI or a sprint. It might just have run out of road this year .... or I’ll just be pleasantly surprised a...

Re: Unpopular opinions

My opinions are often not popular (or at least not mainstream) be it regarding knives or anything else. Regarding knives and particularly Spyderco my opinions that seem to go against the trend are: - Favorite and most carried lock is a liner lock. I live and use knives in an urban environment and do...

Re: Damasteel UK Penknife UKPK - DAMASTEEL PATTERN

Part of the discussion on the pattern possibly needs to be the contrast of the etch. Spyderco tends to use a very contrasty etch. Personally, I much prefer the more subtle etch where catching the light at the right angles reveals more of the pattern than the etch does. I think, it makes for a more i...
