    Assuming I woke up in the right universe, it has been a little over 4 years, not over 5 years. I personally don't see the problem with "reviving" old threads, as long as they're of a subject matter...

    I recently encountered the same problem. I already had a couple dealer exclusive PM2s, but no "standard" PM2. I wanted one, but of course, they were nowhere to be had.

    So, I went to...

    Strong detent on Techno left me in stitches

    I obtained a Techno last week. I was loving the knife until I tried a controlled one-hand opening. The detent is so strong that I ended up cutting my thumb pretty badly.

    How it happened: With my...

    I don't know what the OP is talking about. I have about 20 Spyderco knives, and while some are lackluster in one way or another IMO, many of them are indeed excellent.

    Sounds like it would leave an awfully ugly, shredded branch stub behind. I use a sawing motion because I want it to look clean afterward, without spending more than a minute on it. I know "PE people"...

    Yeah, but sometimes you're in a hurry to get 'em off. :)

    I carry mine tip-up, but I keep the blade side as close to the pocket edge as it will go. That obviously helps keep the blade in place.

    As others have mentioned, I use a Salt. I have the serrated hawkbill variety. Made a buckled necklace-type deal out of paracord so I can wear it all the time, and detach it as needed. It's far from...

    By now I have a good idea what I like. So I think about the options available that I don't already have--usually blade steel, sometimes scale material and blade steel.

    No, I absolutely did not need the Caly3.5. I just wanted it, to be honest. I like having a choice when I go to grab a knife to carry around or use.

    But between the two, I think I'd take the Para2,...

    Thanks for the replies. Indeed, I guess the clip is just meant to be that way.

    Like I said, though, if I depress the lock, the blade swings really easily. The pivot itself is great. It's just the...

    Tight Caly3.5 - worth bothering with?

    I just bought my first Caly3.5. It's a decent little knife, but I have a couple issues with it.

    First--and I know this isn't important--is the clip. It's the same style clip as on the Manix2...

    Really? I have a Smurf PM2 with M390, and I find it very easy to sharpen. I can't imagine XHP being "a lot easier to sharpen" than that. But what do I know.
