    Spyderco Slysz Bowie Question

    Yes, it is a hardened lock face.

    Spyderco Slysz Bowie Question

    Knife people can't ever be happy. When the Sebenza 21 lockface was changed to the have a lockbar insert instead of bare TI, people whined and complained to no end about how the original was better. Now on the Slysz it's unforgiveable that it doesn't have an insert.

    Blades & Bourbon

    I've been meaning to give Balcones Bourbon a try for a while. I like Uncle Nearest, but I've only had the 1856 one that's 100 proof. It's a solid bottle though, I usually keep one on hand.

    It ain't bots. It's small batches and lots of demand. Simple as that/

    CHRIS REEVE: Thumb- Numb- Zaan

    The Umnumzaan is plenty easy to operate. There's just always that inevitably vocal minority of folks who can't figure basic stuff out, and/or like to complain about things they know other people like in the hopes of getting a rise out of someone.

    Blades & Bourbon

    Yeah, I've heard that the BiB is better than the standard single barrel from 1792. I was actually thinking of single barrel picks of the Full Proof that I've had (forgot to say it, though). Those I really like.

    Recommendation? CPM-3V Bushcraft / Survival Fixed Blade.

    I do not, so I couldn't say for sure on that. Everything I've heard and seen about both of those brands has been super positive as well. I used to own one smaller fixed blade by Bark River and it was very well made and finished.

    Blades & Bourbon

    Single barrel store picks of 1792 have been some of the best stuff you can get for the money. Always a fan of those.

    Best tricked out Skyline I've seen!

    Recommendation? CPM-3V Bushcraft / Survival Fixed Blade.

    You might consider the Monterey Bay Knives Field Trekker, recently released. Definitely that style of knife, 3V steel, great looking sheath, and what looks like a well executed convex grind as well. Only $190. Overseas made, so if that's an issue for you, there's that. But the knife itself is...

    Blades & Bourbon

    I'd give another bottle of Early Times a try. Maybe you got a bad one. I've had more of that than any other $20ish bourbon over the last couple years, and I find it to be some of the best if not the best tasting juice at that price point. I'm sure it all depends on what flavor profile different...

    Quiet Carry Drift

    What's the detent like on this version? I had the original version with the thumb hole, which I liked, but the detent and opening hole system just weren't quite right in my opinion. I have the Waypoint which is dialed in perfectly, and this updated version of the Drift with the thumbstuds looks...

    Blades & Bourbon

    The demand for Weller SR is completely out of step with its quality. It's not that it's bad by any means, but there's miles of better stuff on the shelf at the same price and cheaper (sometimes significantly).

    Great Place has SV45VN Umnumzaan

    They are all coming eventually. But Tim Reeve said (on FB, I believe) that the 31s will be the last models to change over. But sometime this year, I'm sure they'll start to appear.

    Spyderco Slysz Bowie Question

    A couple thoughts. First, the idea that there is "massive demand" for the Bowie is fantasy. What exists now is a highly vocal small subset of the knife enthusiast community who are competing over a now capped supply. When the knife was in production is was rarely sold out at dealers. And it...

    Yes, I suppose I must shoulder my share of the blame. :D
