Re: Edge retention.

I spent a few years making boxes. This could also simply be a difference in the quality of the boxes themselves. There is a crazy range of paper weights and flute sizes and even two of the same type of box (say two Tide boxes for example) can be fairly different. The paper itself has a lot of clay a...

Re: Edge retention.

It's far more likely you're seeing a difference/growth in sharpening skill than any real difference between the two knives.

Re: Spyderco Military S110V Blurple is finally here!

Looks the goods I think I'll have to get a military in SE at some point. If one is available/made. They're out there but you may have to post a wanted thread on another forum to find one. I found mine used at my local shop, the handle is scratched up a bit but the blade looks never used or sharpened.

Re: Giants

Any of the record height holders from the last 100 years would have been considered a giant a thousand years ago before people understood the conditions that cause people to not stop growing. I also believe history has quite a lot of embellishing written in as fact.

Re: Interesting Aquisition, curious if meant to be or what it use to be?

I'd like to use a lot of expletives right now.


And in a weird way I also wanna try it out.


But I mostly just wanna run that along a Sharpmaker so I can feel how crazy bumpy it must be.

Re: Is your interest in sharpening on the same level as your interest in knives?

I can get by freehanding but I've never enjoyed doing it. I'm not sure what it is but it just feels like a chore, while using my Edge Pro is more entertaining and I guess enjoyable. Maybe I'm just not as good at freehand. I used to obsess over polishing bevels and such but I've kinda lost interest a...

Re: Would a Sprint or Flash batch of the Centofante 4 fly?

I'd be fine with a simple reissue of the standard version and practically any other conceivable combo.

Re: Spyderco Caribbean Serrated Real world experience

FFG/SE is a formidable combo. I'm really interested in this steel and how it performs in SE for that reason alone. All I've heard so far is that it isn't quite as tough as H1 and that in PE it holds an edge better than H1....not really any feedback on SE performance yet. I need to get one for mysel...

Re: Who would like a traditional slip-joint Spyderco?

I voted no but it's more than just interest. I grew up with Case and the whole reason I'm here is because of the advancements Spyderco have made away from those style of knives (one hand opening, pocket clips). Spyderco do technically have their Bug line which are probably as close to a traditional ...

SEF I can't say you're wrong for feeling this way but I do have to say it's ultimately very subjective. Value to one person is different from value to another because expectations are always different. Some people will never get over the "plastic handles" no matter what they're told, and the same go...

Very good basic steel. There are millions of Kabars out there to support this and ESEE make a fine living off it.

Re: Swedish Barrel Knife

Reminds me of an Opinel knife. Never worked out why they are still popular. Anyone enlighten me ? I've wondered this myself. They seem about as durable as a toilet paper roll. Because Opinels slice better than almost any other folder you can buy, and they're dirt cheap. If you're just cutting up th...

Re: The SE mentality shift

I love the "Hawkfly" but it did come in rather thick in the grind. That's probably a good thing for a hawkbill, at least the tip isn't fragile but when it comes to slicing it isn't half the knife that the standard Dragonfly Salt SE is. It really depends on what you're cutting if that even matters th...

Re: Is the Military too big or big enough?

My first Military was bought lightly used on a whim after years of saying it was too big and the handle was ridiculously oversized but I got curious about the constant praise so I gave it a shot. I figured I got it cheap so I'll use it in the yard and if I break it then oh well. After cutting up a b...

Have you ever tried horizontal belt carry? Conceals easily with an untucked shirt, accessible enough for easy one handed use. That's the biggest hurdle I've got, I have to tuck my shirt in for work so this only works on my off days. I even talked with Dr Snubnose a while back about ideas and that a...

Re: Is the Military too big or big enough?

Most places I've worked had very strict no weapons laws and I have no doubt they would have considered a Vic Classic as a weapon. A lot of companies just don't wanna deal with the liability if another employee files a complaint. At a couple jobs it even got to the point where the common "tap knife" ...
