Going on 5 years with the GB2 and it kicks out lots of others. Give it a try!

I put some new Micarta scales from Sharp Dressed Knives on my old and trusted Gayle Bradley 2 and think it is almost perfect. Perfect would be a custom from Mr. Bradley himself if I could figure out how.

It is perfect (for my preferences). Congrats! :)

The Bradley 2 is a knife I really want to try eventually. So much to like here. And I love Micarta.

Had the Straight Spine Stretch with me for a motorcycle camping trip through the downeast Maine area this weekend. The fall foliage was near its peak and the colors were incredible!

Man, this tiny thing is growing on me

Image

If this, by some weird coincident, had been my first folder, my dive into the folder rabbit hole could have ended right there.
It does my everyday office type cutting so amazingly well, while still being unnoticeable in the pocket.

Took me far too long to notice this gem sitting right in front of me all this time, and same goes for the Spyder-edge. The way those serrations bite into the material makes opening boxes ridiculously easy and even way safer than most PE knives.

It's here to stay.

I hear you, huge fan of the smaller Salt SE knives, all of them actually but the smaller ones just constantly surprise me.

Rainy day in town... tiny Manix, huge Salzburg cathedral (first built around 750 a.d., but rebuilt several times, last time at about 1650)

It’s been 2 and a half days and so far I’m liking the chaparral, clipless, dropped in the pocket.

Your picture makes that Native look tolerable. It's always difficult to gauge how certain colors will look, because stock photos can be misleading sometimes.

Is this your first S90V knife?

It's really more like a light blue color. And easily dyed darker.

I also have the s90v Manix lw that Cutlery Shoppe did, which I carried quite a bit this summer. So far I'm pleasantly surprised...it stays sharp forever, and I was worried it'd be chippy but I haven't had any problems. I've only done a very quick touch up on that one, though. My feelings could change!

Edit to clarify: So I've got a RIT dye color called aquamarine. This is somewhere btw a light aquamarine and a light turquoise.

I suggest a full sharpening/initial reprofile. S90v is nowhere near as chippy as some would think. I’ve used it extensively and believe that was all internet rumors. Get rid of the burnt factory edge and it’s great stuff.

Thanks for the info on the shade of blue, it definitely helps to have something to compare to.

S90V is great, it's my favorite stainless steel, by far. As prndltech suggested, you might want to sharpen/reprofile before use. I’ve refrained from sharpening new knives lately (against the cries of my ocd), and one of the things I've discovered, is that S90V will chip quite easily on the factory edge. I sharpened my S90V Manix yesterday, and had to remove 3 small chips.

Absolutely love small matching lanyards like that. Beautiful piece!
I require more lc200n and thinner grinds
