Re: Ideas for "sprint runs", NOT concerning steel (let´s dream...)

G10 sliverax? Give the rear of the handle just a bit more thickness but keep the forward part thin, emphasize the egg shape even more. Buuuut since you did say "let's dream".... An ikuchi smock dyad hybrid. So two blades, one serrated one plain. Ikuchi style fit into the handle. Smock style front fl...

Re: Spyderco new FRN Lightweights: What do you think will be the best?

I hope to see a military lw, not because I imagine it'll be supremely lighter, but because maybe we can finally have a left hand and/or tip up option.

Re: A Spyderco SAK?? Why not??

Well, they do have the clipitool series. That might be as close as we get, and they're not half bad and have room to grow still too. I could dream of a collaboration with one of the established multitool makers though, they all seem to be trying to find a way to reinvigorate their sales anyway.

Re: Dyad II or New Concept Double Blade Folder?

I'm looking forward to this, been kicking around tracking one down for awhile (currently carry a serrated dfly as a secondary if I'm expecting that kind of work). I'm trying to envision the double compression lock or how to make a good grip and now I'm curious how close what I'm imagining is to the ...

Re: POLL: Possible new double blade folder: Would you like to see another version featuring a saw?

Hmm...most of the time if I want to saw I'd rather have a dedicated saw of some type, even at the expense of weight. Now if it could be interchangeable maybe. But that sounds expensive and small parts to lose, plus most tools or knives I've seen like that feel pretty gimmicky.

Re: Extending the Para Family

Kind of weird and likely wouldn't be popular enough to pursue, but I'd be curious in hybrids, so a pm2 handle with para 3 blade or millie with pm2 etc.

Knives you didn't expect to like so much, or vice versa

For me it's the spyderco khukuri. I picked it up just because I thought turning a big chopper blade into a small pocket folder was such a neat idea, and it's pretty much become the main edc. I think I like how small it carries (have to check out a baby jess horn next I think). PM2 is the one I expec...

Re: Just bought a Golden Stone and.......

Honestly....I kind of like it more than the sharpmaker. Just so convenient. I'd be interested in a half width one, less convenient but would become very packable.

Spydiechef vs Kapara

Both designs draw inspiration from food prep, combined with edc characteristics. From a design standpoint (so ignoring material differences), which would you prefer for that kind of use?

Re: "Best" Survival Foods?

Ration bars are great for shelter in place where there will likely be limited water (car, boat, storm shelter, bunker, etc). They are non thirst provoking and provide a lot of calories and vitamins for the size, and are pretty resilient in less than perfect storage conditions. However, they don't pr...

Sharpening of khukuri, s, hawkbills, etc

I've been having difficulty getting my khukuri sharp, are there any particular tips or tricks to the recurved part of the blade shape? I have been working with the sharpmaker on this one, and will admit it could simply be lack of practice (got spoiled by a we system) combined with over thinking and ...

Re: Autonomy 2

Question for you friends, do you think there'd be much risk of accidental deployment if carried in the left pocket? Presuming the safety had been disengaged either intentionally or accidentally.

Re: What percent of your knife collection consists of users?

Guess it depends how you define user. Of my edc appropriate knives most get carried and used often enough, but I don't actually need to do much cutting anymore. The big ones and fixed blades rarely come out anymore, they been used but can't really call them users at this point. I wouldn't have somet...
