Manly Wasp – Round 2 – The Captain’s Marvel !

Long story short: opening the Manly WASP with two hands is tedious compared to all one hand opening knives available but the pleasure to use such an agressive cutter worst it ! So let’s be short ! Slide #2: I have gently rounded the…

Benchmade 200 Puukko – Call me Snake.

This is the first Benchmade’s review for a long time. Why ? Not because of the quality of Les De Asis company’s products but because I was not really excited by their production in the last decade after a huge love with their AFCK…

Bulgarian Rhapsody – Manly Wasp in S90V

In winter we all need vitamin C, after a long wait I get my shot !! My Viking friend Dan Sharpe has been the one who has injected me the Manly Virus. First one was the Manly Peak, the Comrade…  And with my Welsh…

My Para3 Maxamet Sprint run needed a unique way to express how hardchore the Maxamet blade was to me.

Flytanium on Cruwear PM2 – a sweet customization

Disassembling the Cruwear Knifecenter edition has been a child play once I have found how to use some pliers to keep some rounds spacers from turning by gripping them. Eventually, the Flytanium scales are perfectly adjusted. No surprises at all. The action is as…

In my latest review, Pear of Cydonia, I got surprised by the chemical reaction when cutting quinces with the Morakniv ; immediately the quince’s juice and its high concentration in tannins combined with carbon steel blade lead to dark traces on the fruit and accelerated the…

Pingo Blue C163PBL K390 Exclusive Edge Matters Edition

My first (black) Pingo was almost 6 years ago. Since, Pascal has reviewed his (orange) Pingo… in his entertaining review Pingo Star ! I got the opportunity to get a very rare beast: a blue Pingo with K390 steel blade and studs to mask…

Back to the Tusk!

Before the Spydiechef, the Tusk has been the first Spyderco with LC200N blade. This one needs to get back to sharp after being used by Pascal since his first review. From Spyderco: “The original concept of the Tusk was conceived by Sal Glesser in…

Yojimbo2: swapping the blades back and forth.
