    Gordon have you ever used an axis lock? It's always 1 hand open/close. You don't even touch the blade, you just pull on the lock and a very small flick of the wrist. It's one of the easiest opening/closing mechanisms, one of the reasons I like em so…

    Strangely, the "Notify me of new replies in conversations" one wasn't enabled when all the others were. And that's the one that I'd really like to be getting emails for. I've put it back on now, will see if it sticks.

    I think it's the knife manufacturers who are at fault. They are not putting any kind of warning labels on their products. If they had a sticker that says "Warning: Do not use as a weapon." or even "Warning: Do not use to commit criminal acts." on the…

    Right but you gotta have different tools for different things. And duplicates. If you look in your kitchen cutlery drawer I'd imagine you have more forks & spoons than people in the house...

    How you can get by with so few I can't even imagine... just for the sake of being able to leave them in different places it's worth having more than one I'd say...

    Personally I find the manix lock to be really fiddly and uncomfortable to operate compared to the axis.
    Also the grip has I believe a thicker blade, so maybe choose based on whether you'd like more slicey or tougher knife?
    M390 is pretty much a 'higher…

    Posted the thread For Sale 2 slip pouches.

    Couple glasses pouches which would do just as well for knives.

    £6 each delivered, or both for 10.

    Inside feels like some kinda thin neoprene or similar material.
    SAK for scale, they're about 6 inches / 15cm long, give or take.

    Pezza though this one is convex rather than scandi, it's an excellent bushcraft knife all the same, and this quick video (under 2 minutes) shows you the key design points:

    A little bit of flex lets a material absorb a lot more force. Just like with blade materials. Sometimes it's better to be softer than to be brittle. G10 is much more brittle than FRN and has been known to chip when dropped. The fact it 'feels' sturdier…

    FWIW my pacific is as solid as any other folder. Been using it to saw through a bunch of pvc pipes recently, did the job admirably.
