Re: Sal - What's next for the Military?

Maxamet or K390

The Military is my favorite model. I just want more.

Re: Bed Bugs: Arachnids From Hell

I mix diatomaceous earth in with the wood shavings in my chicken coop. Chickens are prone to a few types of lice and mites. It works well and is a safe product. A friend of mine got bed bugs in his house. He told me all about how hard they were to eradicate. He jokingly said that he was gonna burn h...

Re: Bugout pack suggestions

I don’t see the point of putting a folder in my bag since I always have one on me. I also had a Mora in my bag for quite a while for all the reasons already mentioned. Since I hoard knives I have extras and eventually put something else in there. Right now it is an Ontario Blackbird SK5. Mainly just...

Re: Cru-/Mi-carta Military: Am I wrong or would it gain a lot of weight?

Spyderco was reluctant to do micarta again because they had warping issues with it in the past but if I remember correctly those knives were linerless.

They may be choosing to be cautious due to those past experiences.

Re: Cru-/Mi-carta Military: Am I wrong or would it gain a lot of weight?

Full liners would change it quite a bit. On the other hand I carry a Ti Military and don’t count grams nor do I overthink the balance of a pocket knife. The Crucarta Shaman has nested liners but I guess it gets a pass because it has thicker scales? I have aftermarket micarta scales for a Para2 and t...

It might need some rust preventative added if that concerns you.

Re: Change my mind: the Shaman costs too much

Spyderco’s pricing isn’t linear. The Military is also rather expensive in comparison to the Para2. I think the Para2 is such a high volume seller that the margin is smaller. Also, within reason, I just buy what appeals to me. I may not be able to explain the $55 difference but I also know that it co...

Re: About that food prep ...

If you call yourself a knife geek and you don’t own a Japanese laser then you need to get one. This ain’t even a super expensive knife but it is R2/Super Gold and the grind is crazy thin. I can’t do this with any folder I own. Looks like that’s the Takamura R2? I have the santoku and it’s insanely ...

Re: Why are most Golden blades on the thicker side?

The distal tapers definitely help.

The 3.7mm stock is good on the Military and adequate on the Para2 but on the Para3 it is a bit of a head scratcher.

Re: High Performance Delica Excitement

Vg10 is fine. I am still interested.

Wouldn’t Vtoku2 or Super Blue be able to support that thin edge? :D

Re: The Last Gun You Bought

Nice Wrangler!!!

I have been thinking about picking up a Wrangler as a beater. I have an older Single Six and LOVE it but being a super nice revolver I do baby it a little. It has seen a lot of use for sure but I also try to keep it looking good.

Re: High Performance Delica Excitement

We always get excited about the new steel even when it’s difference in performance is marginal. We are now being offered geometry that will actually show a significant increase in performance. I hope there is similar excitement about this. A $12 Opinel will out cut every Spydie that I own but the ed...
