    Are you kidding me? I'm getting one! :)

    I just hope that the sheath fits the Yojimbo as well.

    I understand where you are coming from Twinboysdad, but I think there are a couple of good reasons for such a product.

    First, not everyone will be willing to fork out a substantial amount of...

    Cheaper Assist-Type Folder

    I recently bought a SOG Escape folder on the cheap, and was quite impressed by it.

    Spyderco has a great professional-grade folder, the Assist, but it's very much more expensive.

    Could...

    It's a preference thing. I prefer the Matriarch as it is smaller and lighter. Much easier to carry around, being almost the same size and thickness as the Endura.

    I have a couple of assisted openers. Autos are illegal where I stay. So, I can only speak on assisted openers.

    I find the manuals more sure on the draw. IMO, this has to do with how the knives...

    Yes, it's still in the rotation. Light and compact knife with a good blade shape for day-to-day urban use (i.e. opening packages and letters). Never underestimate how important a light knife is in...

    My less than two cents' worth, since I'm not an expert in this:

    1. Shooting people may be no less bloody and traumatic than using a knife. The only difference may be that you are slightly further...

    Yes, that was something that held me back for a long time. I couldn't think of any other use I might have for it. It's one of those specialized knives that you just have to decide for yourself...

    Some Thoughts on the Matriarch 2

    I have used and carried mine for close to half a year now. It is good for precision cuts, almost like a box-cutter, or disposable razor.

    There's no problems closing or opening the blade. In fact,...

    Not to mention that it may leave your hand raw. I did that foolishly, and quickly realized the age-old concept of using the right tool for the right job.

  15. Frustration!: Arguing about lockback's strength

    I don't know why, but I got into this silly argument over at another forum about the strength of the lockback on the Endura. I simply stated how I've used an Endura for pretty tough work (jungle...

    I'm having a hard time deciding between a Matriarch II and a Police Stainless Steel. :)

    Yes, it certainly does. Thank you. Given that my favourite knife is an Endura, if I were to get a Reverse-S blade, it will be a Matriarch as well. I don't see the need to go bigger and get a Civilian.
  18. Can anyone explain the Reverse S shape?

    I am familiar with karambit type knives. I have a Blackhawk Garra II, which I'm seeking to replace. I was thinking of something like the Harpy or the Byrd Hawkbill. Then I saw the Matriarch II. And,...

    I will follow your advice and ask for a replacement kit for the clip and screws.

    I had not realized it was a compression lock. This adds to my confidence in this knife.

    Yojimbo 2: Some Thoughts

    This is not a review. I'm simply putting across some thoughts I have on the Yojimbo 2.

    I have had a Blackhawk Be-Wharned for a few years now, and do love that knife. Naturally, my thoughts turned...

    It would depend on what we do everyday, of course. It would not be very useful for cutting sashimi or origami, but should still be useful to open boxes, packages, etc. I believe someone had already...
