Wow! You really dressed that Spyderco up nicely.
Can't beat a Delica, I carried one for years and years when I was roping and working on ranches.
Thanks John. Yeah the Caribbean's been a great knife. LC200N is quite similar to a good carbon steel in terms of ease of sharpening and ability to take a very fine edge, with the bonus of being rustproof. I had to dye the bumblebee scales though. I'm sure they work well for maximising underwater visibility, but I didn't need that colour scheme for my uses.
That's interesting about the Delica. I'm always keen to hear about the knife choices of people who really have to use them a lot for their work.
I carried a Delica for a couple of years - excellent knife, an all time classic.
We are talking quite a few years back.
I needed a one hand opening knife for those roping emergencies or grabbing horses with one hand and cutting them loose with the other. The Spyderco Delica was quite common in a lot of cowboys' pockets for just that reason.
Pair of micarta today.
I don't carry a modern knife very often, but I do carry one every-once-in-a-while.
Mostly I carry them on occasions where most of the traditional guys would carry a fixed blade.
Those times when you know you might need something more secure than your typical pocket knife.
For instance, when I go four wheeling or camping, and I might run into chores where a locking blade would be handy.
Because these knives are mostly carried and seldom used, their main priority is to go un-noticed while riding in the pocket.
For this type of duty, I have really been in love with the Benchmade Bugout. It is absolutely invisible in the pocket until it may be needed.
The one thing that bugged me (pun intended) was the shiny gold thumb stud. I cured that with some black paint. It now looks like worn brass.
Quality tools all around in that picture!
Not a pairing but a Bill Duff (RIP) tripling:No dot Buck 110 from early 70s when Bill was a foreman at Buck; Bill left Buck along with Don Collum to start Rigid Knives, Rigid Apache from late 70s/early 80s; Bill sold his stake in Rigid in late 80s to focus on custom work, a lovely little liner lock gentleman’s knife with mosaic Damascus bolster and incredible file work on spine...all three in 440C
Really digging this pairing...perfect for my Friday
