    Does a synthetic sheath cheapen a knife?

    I like function over form. What functions best with the least downsides, is for me.

    Thickness vs width

    As mentioned in a previous post, there are too many factors to conclude. I'll just say this, all other things being equal(steel, heat treat, etc.) the best cutter will be the one that's the thinnest behind the edge. I will also qualify that, that's only as long as the edge is not too thin. For...

    Thickness vs width

    I don't understand your question, sorry.

    Thickness vs width

    Bothe height and thickness are important to performance. I think it's called aspect ratio. Different thickness at the spine and height will result in a different angle or aspect ratio near the edge or behind the edge.

    Dull edge after cutting sandbags?

    I dunno... it should be pretty obvious to anybody into knives that cutting open sandbags will dull your edges...

    Owning one pocket knife

    I carried a bali during high school and college. I had that for years and it fulfilled all my needs. Until I lost it when the outrigger canoe we were fishing in, capsized. I never felt the need for multiple edc knives until I got on the forums.

    Hard Use Folders?

    I don't think it's anybody's business what knives other folks like. If you just use your Busse as a letter opener, it's also not up for discussion because, you know, the money... it's theirs.

    Not so super steel?

    I used to do that. I don't do it anymore.

    Not so super steel?

    If I want pretty bevels, I'd take it as high a grit as I can. If I want useable edges, 600 grit is all I'll take it to.

    Don't get burned ! Turbo Mode (Flashlights)

    Turbo mode is actually used very often. Each time I come home at night. I have a big unlighted area before I get to my gate and I scan it from a distance before I go near. Just force of habit.

    Don't get burned ! Turbo Mode (Flashlights)

    I've gone over to the FW3A as an edc light. I like it because so far it's the smallest 18650 light I own. The thing is the eswitch(?) is easy to activate unless it's locked. Turbo mode on it quickly heats it up and more than once, I've had an itching then a burning sensation in my pocket.

    Tanto Blades?

    Well, since that unfairly inserted into that statement is a matter of opinion, you are open to disagreement to which I took my option to disagree. There is no myth. As I replied. it just is more work. You said that I was manufacturing the personal side of your butthurt. This statement...

    Tanto Blades?

    Ok, then I hope that the oppression comment was an attempt at humor.

    Tanto Blades?

    I know but it's like sharpening two knives for me. Why, oh why do people take it personally when someone disagrees with their preferences?
