Re: Best Defense in attempted mugging/assault?

In this type of situation, what is the best thing to do to protect yourself? You are walking alone whether in an urban or rural setting and you notice an individual who was loitering in the vicinity, immediately begin to follow you, and even at a fast-paced angle in your direction, and you sense an...

Re: Is it Time for a New Camo Pattern?

I'm interested in hearing what others think. Would you like to see Spyderco offer a new camo pattern for the Military/PM2/P3 series of knives? Here goes. Im most likely in the minority on the below counts. Having been paid to wear camo, I try to avoid camo items and camo clothing (except when hunti...

Re: Spyderco Puukko 2018

I wish the Puukko would be revisited, It's unique amongst production knives since the geometry was killer thin It didn't sale well from my point of view because of the steel selection not the design. I feel the biggest mistake was using S30v with that beautiful thin geometry. Not a good choice for ...

Re: The SE mentality shift

Spyderco serrations are awesome... .... but I take it you are not a hunter? Honest question, as I couldnt get by with only SE knives as a hunter. You presumably have a bunch of PE knives and may use them for that purpose. As for snagging, I seem to remember Mr. Janich posting, that he preferred PE ...

Re: The SE mentality shift

Cliff Notes: SE is the shih tzu and I'm seriously considering not buying anymore PE knives in the future. A few years ago some of you might remember a thread I made about carrying nothing but SE for 6 months. Back then I didn't even own a Sharpmaker, and part of my goal with that journey was to for...

Re: At what point should I start worrying

Dont mention it. I gladly took the time to write a reply to your OP.

What about the aforementioned law, has that not been passed yet?

Re: Combo Edges Truly Getting A Bad Rap IMO

CE has a bad rep because they are SXXT! Na, just kidding :D Spyderco serrations are devastatingly effective, no doubt about that - and those who use them and not least know how to sharpen their Spyderco knives are fans. CE dont have a bad rep amongst them (obviously). For people being spoiled by eff...

Re: At what point should I start worrying

I was under the impression, that a law was being passed in your country stipulating, that knives should be bought and picked up at retailers in-country banning home delivery or something along those lines. Maybe that was just a proposal and not a law actually passed yet? EDIT; found it 'Home deliver...

Re: (Unofficial) Paul Alexander Ikuchi Discussion Thread

I can relate to that.
As I mentioned in a post above, I like the sleek pointy blades of some models - like for example the Nilakka and in extension knives like the Mantra (2) and the Ikuchi.
(Not comparing the models apart from them being sleek and pointy in general).

Re: It just takes the edge right off.

From what the OP said I assumed the cutting of the metal strap was an accident. Yes, that was my impression as well hence the (). Regardless, Im not sure V-Toku2 would be my first choice for plastic straps either ... let alone Zip ties. I wouldn't even think about trying to use a knife to cut even ...
