    Ladybug to me as I don't see any benefit in making the blade thicker to man it up... I have been gifting the regular VG-10 versions here and there as they are easy enough on the budget and still cut...

    Stuart, That would be a nice little experiment! I have considered brass or mosaic pins, not becauce such a small hole in a blade bothers me any, but because it be easy enough to try just for fun!

    SS Balance does have a bit thinner blade as well, 2 mm vs. 2.5 mm of the CF version, if Spyderco catalogue has it right.

    I ordered the CF version two years ago but never received it.. uninsured...

    I've been wondering about how many different sources you'd have if you were to pick 1095? Joe Calton's 1095 knives have received a very warm welcome, but would he have succeeded, if his 1095 had been...

    Thanks Wouter! Ed's designs are usually well thought out, but since I have used the Rock Salt (which has a sharp hump on top of the trademark hole) I was a bit worried about how the knife would feel...

    I wonder how the Frontier would work choked up or in hammer grip using the choil? The way Eric held it, it looked ergonomic, but what do you use a knife for gripped like this, besides poking at...

    My two Squeaks from the same factory have been free of blade play, should that tell anything. I guess you just draw the short straw like I have with over half of my back locks.

    When you already have apexed the edge, edge trailing strokes are very prone to weakening the very apex. Take a paper clip and bend it back and fort to see the effect in macroscopic scale - It'll get...

    I've been championing an integral compression lock as my favorite, but would take it with back lock too.

    It'd be interesting to flame color the scales or /and try stonewashing.

    Agreed on all accounts! Brings to mind the complaints with Barong grind. In comparison the Slysz Bowie seems better in this regard.

    Thanks Paul! Will give these a thought as well, even if at the moment a central pivot as an idea appeals to me more: It would facilitate faster alternating between both sides of the blade so that I...

    Thanks Paul and bearfacedkiller for reminding me about the use of props with the Sharpmaker! I have indeed tried the teeter totter method earlier but have forgot about it. I didn't measure the angles...

    I'd be interested in reprofiling blades to way below 10 dps. If these new CBN rods are able to hog up material fast, I'll try and come up with a base design with infinitely variable angles. I plan to...

    I've noticed the same and what makes it even worse is that tips are (to me anyway) more difficult to grind, depending on their geometry of course.

    I'd like to see Pekka's compression lock design brought towards production! Hopefully with as lean grind as originally was in Nilakka but with a steel better suited for it. What has stopped me from...

    Tip down works for knives that have high ratio of handle weight / detent strength. That is, knives like Paramilitary 1 that you can Spyderdrop easily without using much strength. On the other hand,...

    Comparing Urban and Squeak handles in photos had me thinking: If Urban Superblue sprint ends up being too expensive to sell, maybe we could have a Squeak sprint in it's stead? I'd guess there'd be a...

    The Superblue Delica is nice not only because of the steel, but also because it's so thin! This of course applies to all other flat ground Delicas as well. I hope we get more thin bladed knives in...

    If you were willing to drill away the pins, would it be overly difficult to pin new scales on the Calys or G10 Persians? I have both and would consider a wood scale project, but the lack of already...

    I got a Paramilitary 1 some seven years ago, together with a Sharpmaker and, if memory serves me right, VG 10 serrated ladybug. Already in the 90's I was ogling Spyderco Bob Terzuola and Tim Wenger...

    Up-and-down blade play is difficult to avoid with lock backs, half of my Spydies have it to some noticeable degree, some from use and some ever since the beginning. None of these knives will close on...

    I don't know what's up with the PITS, but it's very tempting despite it's lack of lock and that I don't generally fancy metal handles! Maybe it's the holes in the handle with their promise of making...

    I've been ogling one for a long time. What has stopped me, however, is the steel choice combined with the delicate tip. I've managed to decapitate my Para 1 (CPM S30V) two times, once I don't know...

    Dang the double post from the back seat of my car! ;)

    So, with this knowledge I could reformulate: if we were to pick one among the class (of steels, 5Cr13), why not pick the primus (AEB-L,...

    Thanks Cliff and Thom! I associated 5Cr13 with 12C27 Thinking it wouldn't get quite as hard as AEB-L (13C26) having slightly less carbon. Sorry for being slobby, didn't realize it's a name of the...
