    For those concerned about the plastic used to cage the ball bearing, the material is PEEK - PolyEtherEtherKeytone. It's so strong and durable that it's used to make aircraft fasteners and parts. It's...

    Having deployed a couple times myself (USAF) I'd get a Manix 2 LW. It's very strong but only weighs 3 oz. The Manix 2 XL and the full size Millie are huge, and would get in the way. The Manix 2 LW is...

    I'd jump all over one with red aluminum handle (no pepper engraving) and a VG-10 or S30V blade. Although I'd probably buy a Ti integral comp lock anyway just to have one.

    Sal,

    I agree that Nascar got a used knife. That's why I recommended he take it up with the seller and eBay if necessary. At best this seller made a mistake by not properly checking a return. At...

    Claims to be a US Seller, yet all the measurements are in mm. No actual model listed, but has a stock photo of a knife we know was never made in the steel claimed. That listing screams fraud or fake.

    I'd bet it's the keyboard rather than the tablet. Do you have another BT device you can pair with the tablet to check? Also, who's the maker of the keyboard?

    My suspicion is that Spyderco has been forced to scale back production on these because of demand for the Para 2. They're both compression lock folders that are made at the Golden, CO plant, and...

    Size is a Torx T6 for most clips. Most guys here seem to favor the Wiha brand drivers. I still use the Blue Box knife tools from Spyderco's butterfly logo competitor. Any Torx T6 or T5 through T10...

    I've found the European razor blade steels, i.e. 13C26 / AEB-L and 14C28N, to behave most like simple carbon steels such as 1095 in sharpening. So much depends on end use and how the heat treat is...

    Be still my heart. The CTS BD1 steel is the only thing that's stopped me from buying a Manix 2 LW. I'd be happy with a LW in 154CM or S30V, but S110V? Amazing.
