    How much lighter is FRN than G-10 on an otherwise identical knife with the same liners or lack thereof? My guess is: not very much lighter. However, I don't own any two knives with only this...

    Maybe the larger scratches on the coarser Yojimbo edge trapped the loose braid fibers so they couldn't spread out along the edge. If so, maybe the Yojimbo cut the individual fibers sequentially...

    The Sharpmaker was my first Spyderco purchase. It's a force multiplier; for the cost of one sharp knife you can produce many sharp knives starting with your dull ones.

    I don't know who manufactures the Kirkland jeans for Costco, but I do know this: they fit better and are way more comfortable than the Levi's I bought on that same trip to Costco. The Levi jeans have...

    I voted smurf blue because I like that color. My smurf Para 2 is my work EDC. It isn't too flashy, blend nicely with jeans.

    The closest to "failure" was when my ZDP Delica would not lock open due to pocket lint in the notch. This is a lockback only issue, exacerbated by deep pocket carry. It is not a true lock failure, so...

    I guess the integral compression lock could be short handed as the "ICL." It certainly isn't anything Reeve designed. Or call it the "GIL" for Glesser Integral Lock.

    Thanks, Cliff. I know about tearing diamonds off a nickel matrix, did just that to my XC Diafold when reprofiling some very blunt kitchen knives. I was impatient, pushed too hard, and killed the...

    FRN is the Rodney Dangerfield of handle materials. It gets insufficient respect. I agree that FRN is a great handle material for a user knife.

    Cliff,

    Here is another factor to consider in comparing diamond and CBN rods. I don't think you've spoken to this, yet, for these rods. We know that diamond stones break in with use, assuming a...

    Interestingly, when I visited the SFO last June I found that being able to handle all the models helped me to set aside my interest in a number of them. I have a pretty good idea of what I like in...

    One of those was my very first Spyderco, purchased new in the early 80's. I also own a much newer 204, so I gave the older one to a friend.

    I just ordered two each plain and serrated. Thin to win it! These should make great gifts, too, lots of value for the price.

    The Pacific Salt has no metal liners, just the FRN frame touching the H-1 blade at the pivot. Therefore, no washers are needed, the nylon runs nicely against the steel. The D4/E4 have stainless...

    I recall reading (I think it was on here) that the binder that holds the abrasive together is weaker on the brown rods than on the white ones.

    Dremel is good. Files are worthless on Rc 60 knives, in my experience. I use carbide burrs on mild steel but never tried it on hardened stuff. Feels dangerous to me. The cutoff wheels are great on...
