Picked up this sweet little dashi by Mickey Yurco who is quite the little ingenious weapons maker. Nice basket weave pouch sheath for the belt, numbered to match the blade. 5mm spine, made from an old file and hand etched by Mickey to look like Damascus Steel. Double Grind, Pefect for Pikal Grip (RGEI) 2" blade cutting, 7" overall...Smooth finger guard and nice jimping on the spine...
Yeah, today, October 3rd is the day when the original #Spyderco IRC channel was setup, even though the name has since changed, it is still the day we regard as the anniversary date of our little community. So anyway:
Happy 3rd Anniversary SharpThings!
I would like to thank everyone for sticking around all this time, it is you, the people that have made this place what it is...
My first custom. Overall I'm very pleased. Here is a video review and a couple more pics. My biggest take away is the countouring. It is like no other knife I've ever held, all the rounded edges make you think you're holding a fixed blade.
Thanks for watching!Take care, stay safe, and remember, don't cut yourself.
I recently got a used (very used) Bridgeport Milling machine.
It is a Bridgeport M head, round ram made in 1948. It was in a production shop till about 20 years ago when a friend got it and it sat in his basement used on occasions until we got it.
(he has two other, nicer mills)
So I have a few questions for you guys,...
So I don't like LSCF (Lightning Strike Carbon Fiber). It's really pretty, but the stuff has actual WIRES in it, and if you actually use your knife for a long period of time, those wires start coming out and poking your hand. Not a fun experience!
So I ordered a CF scale from Don at Gator Scales, and I prefer it greatly!
Here is the LSCF scale:
Been selling a lot of knives lately (mostly from my collection, which is dwindling fast) So I decided to treat myself to this little jobbie.
A Custom Amsler Titanium (he calls it a ) Kiridashi Keychain Knife. I call it a Tiny Tanto. The ti work is very nice and pleasing to the eye. Countersunk holes and paracord wrap in the handle is a nice touch. Nice Grinds (the pics dont do it...
So the Techno is gone, I just couldn't warm up to the thickness of that blade.
The Umnumzaan and the Large CF Sebenza are gone, don't like thumbstuds (have I said that before?)
But new the collection are the Spyderco Forum Native 5 and a Centofante 3:
In addition, a Para 2 M390 with Ti Grimsmo scales is passing through my hands and it is a thing of BEAUTY...
