    Thanks for taking the time to answer Monocrom.

    Yeah, I was probably guilty of oversimplifying, as you do when you can't be bothered to type a long post. I guess if we were sat in a pub over a...

    Isn't BD1 an American made equivalent to Gin1? If so, it's based on a steel that help build the reputation of Spyderco.

    I'll lend to a chosen few. It'll often be slip joints because of our edc laws. I just say 'it's non locking'. If they cut themselves after that it's their problem, although I may give them a...

    I've got a Para1 SE, a D'allara rescue and a UKPK Rescue in SE. The UKPK gets the most pocket time. It has slightly flatter serations that are perfect for the things I cut. The Para1 with it's FFG...

    Thanks for joining in the discussion.

    I'm sure I recall Sal saying the lock strength on the Cara cara was in the same range as the Endura. My Catbyrd is built like a tank. The Pivot is the same as a Military and the Lockbar heavier...

    My only sprint is the D2 paramilitary; I'd love to have the full-on D2 Military, but would like the BG42 one even more.

    I want the H1 mariner even more than that though.

    I was lucky enough to have had a play with the prototype Native slipit and it's brilliant. I far prefer it to the UKPK. M4 would just make it perfect.

    I do like the non-stainless options, but as I've already got a D2 para1 and a Gayle Bradley, I'm more interested in non stainless slipits. Urban in Superblue? Or perhaps Bob T in M4? :cool:
