    Recommendation? Southern Grind Penguin bearings

    Ah ok, its definitely broken in by now lol. It probably is the plastic cage, I've heard someone report that the plastic cages on Kizers can sometimes "swell up" and impede the action over time. Something similar could be happening here. Hope you're able to get it fixed!

    Recommendation? Southern Grind Penguin bearings

    Skiff rocket bearings have worked well for a lot of knives, esp ZT's. Don't know what size the Southern Grind would accept though. The goo could also just be part of the normal breaking in process, metal dust getting in the oil.

    Everyone's latest acquisitions!

    I've had the most strange hankering for an overbuilt thumb-stub deployment, liner-lock knife on pb washers. The Hogue EX02 scratches that oddly specific itch perfectly. Really impressed with this, its my first Hogue and it really punches above its price on fit & finish and just the beautiful...

    Who would be happy only Civivi or similar knife?

    I also appreciate this with the Civivi knives I ordered. I also take them apart pretty much once I get them, but its nice to get a budget knife that isn't filled with god-knows-what. Most budget knives I've received needed the cleaning out the box, with Civivi the initial disassembly is pretty...

    AR-RPM9 - New PM Steel from Artisan?

    Nice that they're differentiating themselves with the new lock and now this steel. When they first came on the scene, I kinda thought they'd just be another forgettable brand. Definitely interested in trying out their new stuff

    Knife confessions

    I love overbuilt knives. I know the industry in general is moving toward more carriable/ thinner blades, but something about carrying a huge chunk of steel that you can feel in your pocket just appeals to me

    That sounds like an awesome collection you had! I would've killed for a berserk fury when I was younger lol. I'm trying to get back into them, but dang did they get expensive o_O and my knife budget mustn't be compromised
