    I don't switch hands, but rather I still hold the device (Duckfoot/Goldenstone) with my left hand, and reach under my left hand with my right to hit that side of the blade. A little faster, but I...

    I guess I got left out in the wisdom department, I'm 54 and have never had to have my wisdom teeth extracted :).

    My adult daughters both had to have their extracted though. My youngest had a lot...

    My initial reaction is that I would never pay $750 for a knife, but then I've paid over $1300 for a kayak, and have seriously looked at a ProAngler Kayak that runs $2500-3000. If it's something that...

    Having now dropped two different knives onto the concrete parking lot, I've gotten to where I am uneasy just handling my knives while standing over concrete or hard objects.

    I once had a native...

    Of course my answer has to be: "get both" :).

    I like ZDP-189 (the Caly 3.5 in my waistband right now is ZDP) but the Delica I happen to have in my front pocket happens to be a Super Blue one right...

    I have not ever seen an Ocelot in person, but I thought the paw prints were cute in the pictures. I wonder if instead of drilling holes all the way through the G10 they just had indents (for the...

    I have quite a few PM2's and I'd say the 4 or so that I bought most recently (in the last 3 to 6 months) are definitely "tighter" - so snug the blade doesn't even fall down when releasing the lock...

    Somehow in all of my ~240 or so Spydies, I don't have one in ATS34. I bought my first couple (Worker/Economy and G2 Endura) back sometime in the 1980's. I guess I didn't start seriously...

    Another must-buy.

    Food is over-rated. One look at my waistline and you know it won't hurt me to go a month without eating :). Just buy Spydies and no food, the Spyderco weight-loss plan :D.

    I love my Techo, it's a fun little knife, but I wouldn't consider it ideal for a camp knife. I'd prefer a larger knife, both larger handle and blade. Of the ones you mentioned, I think my choice...

    Did I read this wrong, or did Sal just reveal the next Mule Team steel? (from the Sal vs. The Mastiff thread)



    I'll definitely be getting it, whatever steel it winds up being.

    The teeth are still sharp, so I'm pretty sure they would still consider that to be sharpened on both edges. We got the switchblade ban repealed in Texas, but not the restriction against double-edged...

    I always wondered how H1 would respond to a steel. Since it is "work hardened" does the hardness improve as the edge is aligned when used with a steel? Only when used rapidly enough to generate...
