• Spring cleaning sale: I've reduced prices on the BladeForums.com Logo Tshirts and PVC patches to move these out of here! We're down to sizes Large & XL on the shirts, but have plenty of every colorway left on the patches. Get them before they are gone! https://www.bladeforums.com/help/bfcmerch/
  • The search engine is not working correctly. We are aware of the problem and are working on a solution. Thank you for your patience.
  • I've implemented new password tools to try and cut down on the number of people getting their profiles compromised by reusing the same passwords that they have used elsewhere. If you are using a password that has been exposed in a data breach and is listed on haveibeenpwned.com you will get a notification to change it the next time you log in. When you choose a new password it will show you the strength; you will need a "Medium" strength or higher password for here, 8 characters or more in length.

    Thanks for your support!

Replacement Forums are now open!

I'm opening up the replacement forums for the Blade Discussion Forum, Shop Talk Forum, Spyderco Forum, and Himilayan Imports forum at this time.

Please start using those forums for your new topics... we'll see if the thread transfering works after they are open.

Just to repeat - I'll be turning the current Blade Discussion Forum, Shop Talk Forum, Spyderco Forum, and Himilayan Imports forum settings to read only at COB tomorrow, and making them archives - you'll still be able to read and search them, but you will not be able to post to them anymore.
Please use the replacement forums I'm opening for new posts.

If possible, we will transfer the active topics from the previous few days for each of the forums to the new forums... so that discussions aren't killed off.

Thank you for your support and patience.
