Congrats on finally getting a fantastic knife!archangel wrote: ↑Wed Oct 02, 2019 1:33 pmWell it only took three orders and almost three months, but today I finally received my Roadie. Never had this much trouble getting anything from overseas... But it was worth the wait! I like it! Although I must say that you need quite a bit of force to close it.
But hey, it's Orange! My favourite color!!
I was not interested in it either but got one to round out an order. It’s actually pretty cool. It makes a great little knife for times you really don’t need to use a bigger knife. It’s not the best slicer but it is pretty rugged and a better slicer than many small knives on the market.
I have a couple Pingos and I have never had any of them close accidentally. The action is nice and stiff on all of them... I do have to confess, I did what a lot of people think of as Spydie sacrilege and added a thumbstud to one and it completely transformed the knife into a one-handed opening workhorse.Doc Dan wrote: ↑Wed Jul 24, 2019 5:59 amThe Roadie does improve several things about the Pingo. One thing is that because it has a actual finger choil, the knife is not going to close on your hand accidentally and your finger is not likely to slide forward on to the sharp blade. Both of these were somewhat of a problem with the Pingo.
