    Got my Chokwe on Wednesday and have the S110V Manix arriving Monday. As excited as I am about the Manix, I'm wondering if it will be able to kick the Chokwe out of my pocket. The Chokwe is my...

    Mine was waiting when I got home from work. I'm definitely pleased, and I love the color. Great fit and finish, perfectly centered and even grinds. It is a little less smooth than my other Para 2,...

    Same here, and I completely agree. I think I also read somewhere that those stop pins aren't actually rusty, just unfinished/polished when being manufactured. Unfortunately, I can't find a link for...

    The Lum Chinese may be perfect for you. Way thinner than the Delica, yet packs a lot more blade into a small handle. Plus it just looks gorgeous, whether closed or open.

    I like Spyderco's serrations, but I'm not a fan of combo edges. Give me a plain edge or a serrated, but no half and half. All or nothing!

    I'm a big fan of the colors. My two most common EDC Spydies are my orange Millie and grey Para 2. Makes the knifes raise less eyebrows in public, plus I just plain like the colors. Every folder seems...

    Work hardening is not caused when you sharpen or touch up your knife. The work hardening occurs during the manufacturing process when the two grinding wheels are giving the blade it's hollow grind....

    I keep my Ladybug on my keys. Having something on the end definitely makes the knife fit in hand better, and open easier.

    It happens to me too, and I use a Sharpmaker. Yablanowitz is right, it's from your sharpening technique. I've found if I slow down and use the corners of my Sharpmaker rods, it helps to get rid of...

    I must be in the minority of those who prefer tip down. Especially on the Military, tip up would simply not feel as natural.

    The Sage 3 is great. Unfortunately I had to sell mine. I really liked the blue G10 and the lock. The ergos were great (it is a Sage:)) and it was extremely smooth. No play at all, easier to close...

    I might be in the minority, but I really like Spyderco's S30V prefer it to quite a few different steels. My S30V Military is one of my most sharpest knives, and I've put it through a ton.

    But I...

    Work hardening is caused by the heat (friction) of the two grinding wheels putting the hollow grind on the H1 blades. Combine that with the very detailed serrated edge (more machining), and you have...

    I couldn't agree more! M390 takes that super fine edge and seems to be an incredibly aggressive cutter even while polished. I would love to see a Military in M390 or CTS-204P (Carpenter's version).

    After owning a ZDP Stretch and a 2 Para 2s, I much prefer the Para 2. Better tip/blade thickness, lock, and choil. Plus I also prefer open G10 construction.

    Sage 1 gets my vote.

    Open construction, better fit and finish, more comfortable ergos, tougher blade steel (ZDP can get chippy, and is harder to sharpen) and I just really prefer liner locks.

    I've reprofiled 10V, S30V, CPM-154, and M4 with my diamond Sharpmaker rods. They will not wear out on you, unless you use a very excessive amount of pressure. Use them like you would any other...
