    My heart is with you Senor, however like you said you don't lack for quality blades or edges

    Adamantium is easy...

    Just start with the formula for s110v, then replace the chromium with Molson...done

    Am I right in that the basic warranty will not cover a replacement, because of the way it was used?

    Awesome way to prove FRN is stronger than S110V!

    I would say that's a fair assessment.

    Even though the handle was probably being supported by the hand at the moment of breakage, I am still impressed with the strength of the FRN and design of the handle. Thanks for the field test!
    Next brew is on me.

    I did a lot of pushing and pulling and twisting on the handles before my, um, "field test", and I would have no worries about the strength or toughness of the FRN handles. And judging from the effort required to open up the pivot area, I finally broke off a piece of FRN, I wouldn't be concered about the pinned construction either. These are some well built knives.

    Thanks man. I actually brewed up a couple of batches yesterday, an english brown ale and an american pale. No knives were harmed in the making of this beer

    Nice looking wort chiller. I'm drooling just looking at that. "Beer", the cause and cure of many of life's problem's :-)

    Any news from Spyderco about their thoughts on what happened to this knife?

    It broke due to someone prying with the relatively hard (and thus brittle) steel? All sarcasm aside, it's probably a bit early for any sort of conclusions from Spyderco. I would imagine their interest would be why exactly it broke where it did, and this info may not be for general consumption anyway.

    It not brittle......

    It was just pushed beyond it's limits, same as for any other steel....

    Brittle is dropping a blade on concrete and it shatters like glass...

    It broke how it should have broken, clean with no defects or grain showing and it didn't shatter.

    ... and the strength that senorsquare had to exert to break the blade, though I don't remember ever losing an arm wrestling match while lightly lubricated

    Sigh, I guess I didn't use precise enough language for teh interwebs. By "brittle" I did not mean to imply some lack of strength or defect. By brittle I meant it would tend to fail by fracture instead of plastic deformation. So... not the "same for any steel" pushed beyond its limits, as those are the two options. I've been out of engineering school for 12 years, and out of engineering for 3, so maybe there's a better word for this that I'm forgetting?

    While we're nitpicking: its is different than it's.
