    I remember seeing that movie in the theatre. Makes me happy the next generation is raising their kids on it
    I might be a little salty, even jaded, but wholesome entertainment seems to be a thing of the past and now it's all about vacuous eye candy and bullshit

    Just tried on my spyderco and a satin 3v knife from another maker. So far so good :) Has anyone else tried this ? Their auto waxes are really good.

    A lot of people use Renaissance wax. I’ve used it on fancy Sebenzas and the like to prevent fingerprints and discoloring on satin finishes.

    Oh yeah I use ren wax I use it on my handles too. Good stuff !!
    This metal wax seems to clean much better. Plus it leaves behind a nice coat that also helps prevent finger prints. But I would NOT use it on handles, it’s metal only.

    Two I just did

    I know this is not at all a random thought but rather than start a whole new thread and it has to do with CPK knives ... I thought I might slip this question in here ... so forgive me.

    I have a few CPKs for sale and have a members from Canada inquire about them. I hate to refuse a sale but have not been offering any shipping out of the US due to a couple lost packages since this covid mess started. Does anyone have any solid advice from experience on the best way to ship a CPK knife to Canada with no hassles? If I can figure out a way I am comfortable with and get a good price quote from a shipper for the buyers ... I might feel comfortable enough to go ahead and let them buy the knife they want instead of turning down someone who wants a CPK.

    If you have any experience and can help please PM me.
    Thanks,
    JJ

    I also dislike selling internationally. Mostly I request the buyer accept all shipping and customs risks, and I refuse to lie on the customs declarations.

    For what it's worth, I've received 4 CPK's from the US without any issues. I think I had to pay tax once but the other 3 went through without a hiccup. @Jo the Machinist labels the parcel as "camping tools" instead of knife.

    I think Jo had some packages returned recently with that were labeled camping tools because it was too "general". I just thought if anyone knew hassle free shipper that was reliable I may consider Canada along with the US.

    I Shipped this past month, via USPS, just like any ol' day of the week. Everything went smooth. I stated they were utility knives. Having said that, I was anxious because if it's lost internationally I think you are just SOL.

    I’ve shipped many knives from Canada to the US with out any issue. I always labeled as camping tools and send insured with signature through Canada Post. I have also received many other knives from the US shipped through USPS labeled the same way without issue.

    In saying that, I haven’t shipped or received anything since Covid.

    Thanks for the replies. I will see if anyone has anything to add tomorrow and I'll look into a few shipper options and see what answers I get. I normally had no issue shipping especially to Canada ... but recently (since March) things seem to be sketchy at best shipping anything out of country.

    Random thought - if your company robo/sales/spam call has the audacity to offer to "put me on the do-not-call list", then I am an automatic "YES!" Absolutely! Stop calling me. Forever!

    Sorry: they're lying. When you agree to that, they sell your number to others as a verified "good" number with a human on the other end. I read an article about that scam a couple of years ago. Better to just hang up.
