Great collection! Beautiful knives
Nice set up, what flashlight is that?
Really digging this thing, may as well stick these trit vials here until I get around to milling the backspacer
This knife so smooth and beautiful! I got one and it went into my knife box... ;(
Ya I liked it so much I picked up the Lanny as well. They're like senior and junior haha. Action is so smooth it's ridiculous.
I'm not an EDC kinda guy (my office job basically prohibits it) so my folders only came with me when going into the outdoors.
Just reporting in to say that ever since I received my HDFK, all my folders haven't been used a single time. The FK2 is waiting for me at the post office - I don't know who will get more hip time. Most likely HDFK in the winter and FK2 in the summer.
These two are way outta my wheelhouse. Let’s see...I don’t do flippers, bearings, autos...what happens when I trash all my buying filters?
I was pretty impressed with the build quality when I finally got to handle a Hinderer. Had to try one, and I’m really enjoying the XM18. The triway system is pretty brilliant. I also happen to be a big Wharnie fan, so...
I’ve ignored Microtech in my knife life like I do fast food seafood places...just don’t even see them. But I watched a review that highlighted these things have real, actual cutting geometry and thought, welllll. 0.010 BTE. Solid design. Fires hard...so hard my son dropped it on my brick/tile patio the day I got it.
I’m a little amazed that Microtech can make basically the same model(s) for decades, and still sell the snot out of them. Let’s hope Nathan doesn’t do that! (no worries said the White Board)
Microtech definitely has some hard firing autos. My SEAL Scarab is the hardest firing DA OTF I've handled. The plus side is that it takes such a firm push, that you're gripping it pretty solidly, minimizing the chances of dropping it.
The only OTFs I've tried that fired harder were SA (the 2-handed closing allowed for a ridiculously strong spring).
I carry a Shirogorov F3 on duty. Rides in my back pocket.
I have an XM-18 and CRK Inkosi that sit in my safe 99% of the time. The folder that I stick in my pocket just about every day is one of my Spyderco Para 3's
Yeah I’m with you. I’ll occasionally carry a CRK or something higher end. But spydercos own the majority shares of my pocket time for sure. They just cut so well.
So...I was chatting with the maker the other day on Instagram, turns out the "dark titanium" scales and backspacer are zirconium too, lol
So the blade can get scratches, but the handle is pretty much scratch resistant?
It would certainly seem so, based on the wear/usage evaluation...came to me at least third hand. We'll see how interesting that makes engraving it...
Yikes. If the material is zirconium, I hope you have some diamond coated bits, 'cuz I don't think regular metal will work too well.
From what I understand, the base metal zirconium is actually rather soft, it's only the surface oxide layer that's hard. Since the engraving I do doesn't rely on grinding through the surface, but rather cutting it from the bottom I think I'll be ok with the same stuff I use on titanium and steel.
That’s funny, I’m just the opposite. I carry a CRK 99% of the time and my off days are a BM Bugout or a Microtech of some sort.
