    Spyderco Manix 2 Lightweight

    Huck, I got to agree with you on the BD1 steel. I find that I can get a very sharp working edge that holds up well. Easy to sharpen and maintain. I have both the BD1 and S110V. The S110v is great but once dull it is a pain to sharpen. Super Steels can be a super pain in the butt.

    Stropping on cardboard?

    I work in a warehouse and use my Spyderco Native 5 S35V often to cut a variety of materials - cardboard, plastic wrap, plastic straps, rubber hoses. Occasionally I strop it on corrugated cardboard from a box. It seems to work well. Anybody else use this? What are your thoughts?

    The One Knife

    The Delica Sabre grind was my 1st "good knife". If only I stopped with the Delica. But no I went down the slippery slope of knife love. 35 years and many $$$ later I'm still looking for "The One". Now I buy one or two production folders a year. Moderation in everything including moderation.

    Refresh G10

    The black G10 scales on my trusty Manix 2 have become smooth. Is it possible to restore the original texture? I'm hesitant to try sandpaper for fear of damaging the scales. Any suggestions?

    My Rat2 locks up at the same position. Not a problem. It hasn't moved in over a year of EDC. Solid quality knife.

    Native 5 - the perfect pocket knife?

    Almost perfect. A wire pocket clip would go a long way towards perfection.

    What knife brand can you just not walk away from?

    It was Spyderco for many years but Case has always my favorite brand. I always had a Case knife growing up. If Case went under or worse went off shore I would be devastated.

    "Lifers" check in here...

    I joined here in 2002. Can't remember if I was looking for anything specific. My favorite knife at the time was my Benchmade 705. Have my interest in knives changed? Not a whole lot. I've always leaned toward 3 - 3.5 inch modern production knives. I have developed an interest in traditional...
