It is all part of the plan, first step is the mistletoe handles, the next step is replacing the nitrogen in the steel with the required pheromones. It is a long process and quite involved, but we Holly scientists never shy away from worthwhile goals.Greaser wrote:I don't know what kind of women you guys are running around with, but I know my wife wouldn't be interested in making out with me if I was waving a knife around in the air.
At this stage they are quite volatile. I made the mistake, rather obvious in reflection, of breeding in flax as I was thinking you could always just eat the handle of your knife in an emergency, but I forgot that when you hybridize such plants the ratio has to be doubled due to the number of phenotypes and thus ended up with twice the amount of inherent oils. The wood thus now not only burns really well but is prone to polymerize on its own and thus can self-combust, which is probably not the best idea. Though it does make for some interesting gardening. I think I may have just invented the sport of extreme weeding.kbuzbee wrote:Can I have your discards, Cliff? I'm planting a hedge.

Native5 is my "big knife" for about a week. I am keeping my EDC knives on the counter. Sometime last week I forgot my Persian at home on my desk. I realized that at work and thought that I need to put back on the counter, but keep forgetting. Native5 cuts everything anyway.kbuzbee wrote:Yep, Native 5 or Caly 3 for my "big" knife, most days.
^^^^ This !David Lowry wrote:I didn't used to be. I used to accept VG-10 and 154CM as "just fine". After I tried CPM-M4, CPM-D2, and ZDP-189 and saw what they could do......it was all over. There is a ZDP-189 Delica in my pocket right now. I'm just blown away at what I can cut and how long those steels will go without needing to be sharpened when compared to VG-10 and 154CM. Sounds dumb, but I cut through a CAT-5 network cable with a VG-10 Delica. The edge looked rolled or blunted afterwards. I did the same with a ZDP-189 Delica and it still looked like new. Stuff is unreal.
Wow, this thread got off-track. I agree with David, sort of. To pick an example, my first-year Benchmade 710 has an ATS-34 blade that was regarded as rocket science at the time and still cuts and holds an edge pretty darned well. Advances like S90V, properly hardened CPM-M4 and a few others really raised the bar, though. Do I need that performance? Honestly, probably not, but since I can, I want it.elena86 wrote:^^^^ This !

This thread went from blade steels to free education from the government. Of course I will be the first to say that nothing is ever free.
Someone seems to have a chip on their shoulder. Would DMT take care if that?

Well, I did not insult anybody. If you put back what I was saying it will be pretty clear.TazKristi wrote:Nozh,
This is our forum. Spyderco's forum. You can disagree all you'd like but do so in a mature manner without insulting others. You can discuss things and vehemently disagree if so you choose without insulting others.
Hilarious! You really would make a good stand up comedian.nozh2002 wrote:Well, I did not insult anybody. If you put back what I was saying it will be pretty clear.
Now when you removed it - it is easy to blame me in whatever you want. Isn't it?
I guess this is quite convenient for you to remove posts and then accuse me of insults.
However I am very familiar with this kind of reaction. You just can not face what I am
saying. And even I was not insulting anyone - you rush to remove it, because you know
I am right and that scare you.
I am a junior member here, but why is Nozh fella always like this?
