    I look at their polcies, their prices and the individual knife that they are selling, that I am interested in, and then decide if I want to buy that particular knife. I have chose to only buy one...

    About eight years ago, I was doing something that required me to keep digging for my pocket knife (a Blur) and I slipped it into my right rear pocket for easy access. This is pretty much the way I...

    I like thin knives and that is what I mostly carry. Backlocks seem to rule in this category.

    Functionally speaking, I think I like liner locks better but I don't mind a good backlock if it keeps...

    If this was the last episode where Hannibal is being dangled over the pig pen, I think the knife being used was a Pacific Salt. It was hard to tell though. It looked like the Spydie hole was...

    Heh heh, nope. That is why a lot of us were surprised at your reaction to the knife dropping incident. For some of us, your story is standard fare.:cool:

    I think we have a consensus here.



    Get yourself a Sharpmaker.

    This unfortunate accident is not the fault of Spyderco.

    Sharpen the knife yourself or send it to Spyderco for...

    My two cents. I've had my Sharpmaker about three years now and i have found that a properly profiled edge can be easily maintained with the Sharpmaker. If I am struggling with getting a knife sharp...

    I don't dislike DLC or like DLC in particular. I have a few years of usage on folders with coated blades and I kind of like the way they wear. On a user, I don't care one way or the other, but a...

    Ok, thanks for the responses. It helped a lot. I am still thinking on this one.

    Will the deep carry clip of the Caly 3.5 fit this knife?

    Sorry if this has been asked. I have been ignoring the Manix threads for fear of buying one but I just looked at a picture of this one and...

    Both my ZDP and G10 models were gritty when I first got them and I purchased them a year apart, and from different dealers. I rinsed them with hot soapy water and all was good.

    I've watched videos of this but I can't for the life of me one hand flick a knife open with anything but my thumb.

    I think fear of cutting yourself again is sufficient enough motivation to keep your finger out of the way while you practice some more. I remember when I got my first Military, I was fascinated in...

    Yes I did. I just free handed it with a Dremel, but I like it. I had cut it a lot shallower but then tried to cut some jimping into it and kind of messed it up, so I cleaned it up some by taking it...

    I am not too sure about how feasible a permanent run of Caly 3.5 SBs are, but I sure wish they would make another limited run of them.

    I like the Pacific Salt serrated better than the Endura serrated. I bought the PS first and figured if the PS was so great then the Endura would be greater. I never did warm up to the Endura fully...

    Thanks Cliff, interesting stuff. I book marked it and will take a harder look at it when my mind is a little fresher(long day at work). Every time I read your stuff, I absorb a little more.

    I think about this type of thing all the time but there are too many variables to get any kind of sharpening efficiency ratings for the different steels. I have an abstract formula rattling around...
