    (OK, I'm going to try to stay positive with my response so people don't jump on me.)

    It seems to me that these are very popular and dealers are getting these in in small batches. They get a batch...

    Seems to me that a steel intended to be used as tool steel has to have a pretty good level of performance or else they would not be able to keep selling it. So tool steel should be reliable. Steels...

    My first one has a stiff spring but otherwise is smooth. My second one seems to have the same spring force, but the ball seems to get stuck in its position against the blade tang and this takes some...

    How do they compare with KW? I thought KW might have some connections to the factory since they have sponsored a lot of exclusives, but they are having problems getting these in stock. (Or maybe...

    I haven't tried it with a LW model. I handled one at the Spyderco booth at our local show a few weeks ago but I didn't want to be flipping the blade around in front of them. (And BTW they didn't...

    I have 2 of the G10 models and they both require more than one thumb, IOW they have pretty strong springs. One of them even sticks a little bit but this doesn't add much force on top of what the...

    They seem to still be pretty much unobtanium right now. I guess time will tell if they actually become available for purchase like a common production knife.

    I have both and I much prefer the Tenacious. I like G10 and liner locks better, I like the size of the Tenacious better, to me it looks like a much more expensive knife, and it certainly operates...

    My father had a friend who owned a guide service, this was about 40 years ago. He claimed he could do several Elk with his production 440C folding knife. I always found this hard to believe myself.

    I have both sizes of Manix and I think the regular size would be better for EDC, although I will carry mine for EDC occasionally.

    The next step up might be a Maglite XL50- 139 lumens, multiple modes, about $25.

    I'm now a Fenix fan and they have some lights that you would really like, but they are significantly more expensive.

    It was a bit deceptive because the way the tables were arranged there were a lot of people crammed into a small space. I got bleary-eyed after looking at knives. This was foremost a gun show though...

    I like linerlocks because they are easy for me to use and I've been using them for a long time so they are second nature. Good access to the liner is key to making these easy to use.
