    I've grown my collection slowly, and I've hit the nail on the head with most of my purchases. Each one fills a particular niche, and each one gets its share of use. I've sold one and given away one...

    Yes, that is what I meant, but my sentence was a little ambiguous on that point. My reasoning was that stainless steels are often giving up something with regard to the qualities you're referring...

    Not every request must be warranty based. It never hurts to ask.

    Have always been interested in this one, but the Delica fits my hand so well I just sniffed out a G10 version of that instead. It appears that the hump in the handle would be right were I wanted to...

    Agreed with Evil and Nccole. There are factors such as rust resistance that play into which blade may be the right choice for a person, thus its "value." Also, there may be a reason to go longer...

    An interesting topic, thanks for bringing it up. I feel similarly to you, although I wouldn't call it buyers remorse exactly. All my knives are users, I get pleasure carrying them and using them,...

    I'm with you on the R, Bear. I actually bought the R as one of my first Spydies just because it was a sprint run and I thought the nishijin was cool. I bought the Stretch later due to the glowing...

    I'm 100% with you on this one, I'd own the full line of salts if they only had the bi-directional texture. I'd buy a man-purse if it had bi-directional texture.

    Gordon

    With any design there are trade-offs, some would like better edge geometry, some would like more safety factor. I can understand your frustration with the "creep" in design trend, if we...

    The short answer is yes, because just like the OP noted, this is already happening to some extent with current designs, most noticeably the linerless FRN models. As you push a knife closer to its...

    An interesting idea, but as Cliff hinted, and others have mentioned, it's an issue of force transfer. I'm not sure it's been explained fully, so I'll throw in my version of the explanation in the...

    10% would be high (bad) in my opinion, but some of this is being confounded by the ambiguity of the question. By this I mean, some people's locks never worked (which means that they weren't locks),...

    Try not to lose sleep over it. It's a damn fine knife, but there will be damn fine knives in your future. This is the prime flipping time, so just sit on it for a while and wait until some users...

    Fair enough. I can appreciate that, I feel that way about the Stretch blade.

    My original Manix XL is the smoothest one I own, even better than the Southard. It feels like oiled glass.

    The looks, or function? I think the blade shape functions great. As Evil D has pointed out, it's like a warnie with just a little belly, which keeps the tip from getting too far off axis but with...

    Check out McMaster or Grainger if you're interested in what's (readily) available. Those are like the engineer's Amazon.

    I can't fathom how slight the improvement would be, if the action on mine...

    I think this a little unfair and solely based on the last PM2 preorder, which was actually a dealer exclusive, not a sprint. I guess you're only as good as your last performance, and I can see how...

    I looked at the superleaf in the past, but went with the Manix XL instead, which ended up being a spectacular choice for me. The XL was cheaper, made in US, and a better blade to handle ratio. ...

    The PM2 is sure to get future sprints/exclusives, so it's not a terrible idea if you don't immediately need a knife and want something special. Often you don't have to pay all that much more for the...

    Definitely depends on how badly I want the knife, but I find myself mostly wanting current models which definitely helps. If it's a model I really want, I just need to be sure to be there for the...
