    Nice! Thats a STUD!! I would take the s110v mule over the South Fork. Phil Wilson knows what he's doing, but I've always preferred shorter blades for skinning.

    Fwiw, I have spent a good deal of time handling the fluted version, and I prefer the regular ti model that I own. Many prefer the fluted and I'm not trying to contend that either one is better than...

    I can completely relate. I try not to even own more than five or six at a time. I feel like I just don't have enough love to spread around. :D That sounds ridiculous but it's kind of how I feel. So...

    LOVE the idea of a reverse s fishing/boat/salt knife!! Actually, I would probably buy a lil matriarch over the tasman if it was available in h1. All I really use on my tasman is the tip and I would...

    $105 for a production model. If you love it and can't live without a sprint then sell it on the exchange for $100 and get a sprint next time they come out. It probably won't be at long.

    I can't speak for anyone else but I kayak fish on the ocean on a daily basis. I had a manix 2 LW in bd-1 that I took out for a couple of days last year and it ended up covered in rust spots after...

    Thought there was a secret I wasn't in on! :p Hopefully there is a secret that NONE of us are in on. There usually is. ;)

    Really? I didn't know anything about that. Any information on that? Existing model with h1 or new model?

    Interesting I'm curious about the spring though. Do you think that could make those from h1 in a cost effective manner? I know very little about "spring making" :)

    The manix would not be at the...

    I bought a GB and paramilitary at the same time. I used the pm2 way more so the Bradley ended up getting sold off. Then I got a military and the pm2 ended up getting sold off. :rolleyes:. Now I roll...

    I retried the test and got more results. The braid I was originally cutting has been on the reel for almost a year and the fibers are showing some fraying and are generally looser than when new. I...

    Yes, but not in this test since the diameter of the line is smaller than the depth of the edge bevel.
  14. Cutting comparison between s30v/superblue rough vs refined edge

    I made an interesting discovery today about edge finishes. I am well aware that a lower grit, less refined edge can have better cutting ability than a more refined edge. For this reason I tend to...

    If you are looking at the manix it is kind of hard not to recommend the new s110v frn model.

    Wait on the native 5 in s110v. Also, you will have to buy a paramilitary 2 at some point...that's kind of obligatory. :). I strongly suggest trying a serrated h1 "salt" knife too. Pacific salt, salt...

    Those are two pretty different animals, so I wouldn't say one is necessarily better than the other, however, I have both and highly recommend them both! I think that if I'm going to have a salt 1 AND...

    Welcome to the forum. My two sharpmakers both have play on a couple of the holes and it doesn't affect anything, so I wouldn't worry about that. I agree with Cliff on the edge. You probably just have...

    Sigh, ok, I guess you can have both. ;) Interesting about the native. I wonder why they chose to put bushings instead of doing them like the salts.

    I just took a look at some pics. I think what might look better is to make a straight line from the tip to the spine about a third of the way back from the tip, then round that point off where it...
  23. Who prefers the Pacific Salt and Salt 1 over the Endura/Delica??

    Ok, everyone knows that I am a big fan of the salt knives. A lot of that has to do with the fact that I am on the ocean daily and live in a corrosive environment, but I believe I also prefer the...

    Thanks for that explanation. That made a lot of sense. But are we to assume that a knife without these modifications could be used beyond 100 units of force without breaking? If not, then the lock...
