From M2HSS to CPM-M4 — Hightech Peasant Knives and why I love them.

I always wanted a Old Timer feeling on a Nasa tool. Grandpa’s knife update, a workhorse with the latest tech but asking for the same care as the previous 20th century generation used to provide to their pocket knives.

My project when I had ordered the Jade Yojimbo2 was to swap the blades with my Carbon Fiber / S90V Yojimbo2, to make a vinegar patina and enjoy a unique CPM M4/ Carbon fiber Yojimbo2. Yeah well… I have done it but the patina. Here is the result. But you know what… As great as … Continue reading Yojimbo2: swapping the blades back and forth.

Spyderco C223GPDGY Para 3 Maxamet — The Grey Mouser.

It has been half a year of patience before my pre order turns into a mail call. Howard Korn from the Knifecenter.com was kind enough to send it to me as soon as he has received it. It was a quick 6 days of travelling from Fredericksburgh, Virginia to Paris. The name of this Para3 … Continue reading Spyderco C223GPDGY Para 3 Maxamet — The Grey Mouser.
