    Hmmm... I can see this'll take a while, but I have to agree with the no bottle opener rule.

    I have to agree with Platinum about the 3" blade length, but I'd be happy with a single blade.

    For handle material, I'm not so fussed, though it occurs to me that if we're going for a traditional looking knife, it should be some kind of wood...and…

    Thanks for that.
    What about the "heavy" ones?

    Yeah, I know; it's the same blade that the Roughneck/Lumberjack/Whaler models have. I used to have a 2-blade Roughneck but sold it as I found the small blade made the handle uncomfortable in use.

    Damn! A 2-blader! Still beautiful, though. That's my favourite blade shape by GEC.
    Who's got a single bladed version that they'd like to sell me?

    I don't like the way it flexes in use, and its inability to hold a blade rock steady because of said flexion.

    Here's a couple of design classics that I've been EDCing:

    Yes, but it's what lies beneath the whiskers that'll be easily sliced through that concerns me.

    They are absolutely stunning! I, however, am far too wussy to take an open blade to my face.

    Hmmm...re-reading the first line of my thread, I am not sure that the words "solid" and "FRN" should even be on the same page.

    Is there a Spyderco Salt model with liners in the handle, or are they all solid FRN?

    Alternatively, is there a Spyderco model with liners in the handle into which one could transfer (i.e. replace!) a blade from one of the Salt models?

    I absolutely…

    My advice is: don't!

    The sad truth is that the majority of those amazing insect photos are of dead ones.

    However, look up a guy called Thomas Shahan on Flickr - he is my macro hero!

    Prior to this, the last time I did a stacked image was this one:

    Since my son was born, back in 2013, I haven't really played with my DSLR until tonight. I used to be a macro buff, so I thought I'd have a mess-about this evening, since I actually had some time on my hands, and picked up a cracking Manfrotto tripod in…
