Well, this variety of knife does tend to bite a little more frequently than most.
May be a little late, but this is my EDC. Only nonserrated. Awesome knife. I have two actually!
Nice tony, that is a sweet blade!
yeah, I shoulda' gone camping this weekend, but am lookin' for a dog. 'round here ya' gotta' get to the pound ~early~ if you find one you want... they're usually spoken for but not picked-up the first time 'round, and there's a nice GSD bitch waitin' for me to snatch her away in... 15 minutes :huh gotta' go!
Second that. It's never a worry after having one ~6 months of carrying one everwhere.
So I bought the Twitch II to replace my lost Spyderco Delica, which I loved. While the SOG is also easy to live with it isn't nearly as sharp or (IMHO) tough as the Spyderco. I had two delicas over the years and never felt the need to sharpen either during their lives.
The Twitch is great for the money. It's well-made, and easy to open, and small enough that it's not going to put someone off at work (a concern in an office.)
I'm going to get another Spyderco, though. Not really a good-looking knife, and certainly not the most comfortable, but super easy to use one-handed and tough as nails.
I have a couple S&M (Queen) knives. Both are identical except one has never been out of the box. The other (pictured here) is the one I carry once in a while that still looks brand new after ten years of ownership. The other one is for sale but I doubt I'll ever sell it for what it is WORTH. Limited edition 4 blade congress, F&W tested.
I just picked up a new skinning knife. I don't think this one will get lost in the grass...
To this laymen, can you explaine the file and wire test?
Back before Rockwell hardness testing equipment came out, they tested some blades by using different grades of files to see what grade it would take to cut the blade, then they used different grades of wire to see which grade the blade would cut through. If the knife blade survived the tests to a degree, they were deemed file and wire tested.
Thanks, I should have been able to guess that.
That would have been a good guess, more like a brilliant deduction. It is more entailed than I liad out but that is the gist of it.
No, more like falling off a rock!
File hard is a common term in the heat treating business.
Some parts are too intricate to hardness test, so a file is used. If the file slides across the part without digging in, the part is at least as hard as the file. Most files are 55HRC ( or so ).
Before hardness testing machines were common, hardness testing was done with a verity of items such as different types of stone and files of different certified hardness. The ability of the item to scratch the heat treated steel was the hardness test. The result was reported as an example " granite hard". If you ever run across one, the files can be identified by a Brinell indentation on the shank and the Brinell hardness number steel stamped beside the indentation.
ESEE because you just can't have one:
The Scales on the 6 look great. Do you like the way they feel?
Carrying my well-worn Laguiole today.
That would be an ideal sail boat knife. Cut your rope, clean your fish, and open the wine...
Even has a marlin spike...
