Sal, I know what I like, but also know most of it would not be very popular. So, both out of respect to Spyderco's bottom line and my ego, I wouldn't to want to see a "Deacon tribute model" getting closed out at a loss on Sierra Trading Post.sal wrote:SSSssssoooooo Paul,
Assuming this concept can work, and you're the first honoree (victim ), perhaps you can help the rest of us design your model?

Contoured bolsters, pinned pivot (aka hidden pivot screw so as to not ruin the looks of the bolster), nice inlays, no clip (again, so the bottom bolster stays clean).timlara wrote:Yes!Evil D wrote:OR just get around to making that bolstered stag inlayed Kiwi 4...
If Paul prefers the Stretch over the Kiwi these days, I'd be happy with his suggestion, but I also seem to recall that the main gripe he had about the Kiwi 4 was the more "tactical" construction of it compared to previous Kiwis. So if we could get rid of the screws and G10 in favor of a nicer looking natural material, maybe that's a start?
I personally would like to see Evil D's concept of contoured scales for the Kiwi 4 become a reality as it seems like that would both class up the knife and improve ergos significantly.

So, while I still think there are a number of more deserving candidates for such an honor, a knife I that would reflect a good deal of my "tastes" and still have a chance of selling reasonably well would be a brown FRN VG-10 Stretch with no Boye dent and a straight spined (Military, PM2 style) blade.

Yes, Ignaz, you tried to insinuate he was wrong, called him a racist and attempted to pressure Spyderco into not honoring him because you don't like what he said.Don't pretend that wasn't your intent.
He insulted no one. He merely stated facts that you can verify yourself by reading the Quran and the Hadiths.Maybe talk about with your friends in a non confrontational way. You continue to state he is telling lies when you,and not he is the one telling lies. You obviously can read so why don't you find out for yourself? Would you rather slander someone with lies and false accusations or learn the truth? If at this point you won't attempt to learn the truth we have nothing to discuss and we will certainly have no need to get along respectfully or otherwise. You would be doing exactly what you claim incorrectly that he is doing so where would that leave you? What sort of person does that make you?
If you knew Paul you would certainly know he is respectful of others, polite and his tone is more measured than mine. He has more patience than I do for others which is why he ignores stuff like this.
Saying things you don't like doesn't make him wrong, a liar or a racist. I can't say that about you.You are lying when you call him these names unless you have other evidence of him lying which you have not yet shown. I've left much unsaid because I sense in you the SocialJusticeWarrior mentality itching to call on other 7th grade girls to come help you here on Poor Kristi and Sal's website and begin yelling about violent words and safe spaces and threatening to not buy more knives?....
I do urge you to open up a book and do some reading. I know there are Qurans translated to German and English and available for you to read and research. The other writings and sayings you can also get or look up online to make things easier.
Do we need to put up videos of Trigglypuff? Show other social justice warriors in action? I'd hate to do that to Sal's place.
Unfortunately he is. Just read that.The Mastiff wrote:I'd be angry too if he was discriminating or lying about anybody, not just worshipers of Islam. He isn't and it's not even close.“
What he wrote here is not true but discriminating and racist (although that’s not biological racism but so called cultural racism).„...Islam teaches that all non-believers must eventually be converted to Islam, killed, or subjugated and enslaved. We must also not forget that Islam is also the only faith which preaches that lying to non-believers and entering into treaties and alliances with them which you fully intend to break, is acceptable behavior, as long as it somehow furthers the cause of Islam. ...
...no Muslim, regardless of the platitudes they may mouth in public, can be considered as anything but a potential threat, fifth columnist, terrorist, or financial backer of worldwide Islamic terrorism. ...“
Bolstered Kiwi large enough for my hands to get a full grip sounds pretty fantastic and very classy. SB or HAP40? Or maybe even Shirogami White to set it further apart from everything else? I guess those won't work well though since they're non stainless.Evil D wrote:OR just get around to making that bolstered stag inlayed Kiwi 4...
