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…

BFTP Fred Perrin Spyderco’s Native Review.

Thanks to JD (Dinkmaker) I was able to read some of the very first knives review written on the Internet in the mid 90’s. More than twenty years ago, no digital camera but my video equipment and so freeze frames in low res. The…

Spyderco PARA 3 G-10 Black on Black C223GBK — The Black Panther Cub

This is my first Para 3 and also my first black coated Spyderco blade. According to Spyderco: “For tactical end users who are concerned about light discipline or those who just prefer the look of a black blade, the Para 3 is now available…

Spyderco C41GPFGR5 Native 5 — A Smooth Operator.

Every Spyderco’s fan needs an all American Made Native. Why? Because it’s one of the short folders well designed to accommodate every type of hands. It is like a super Delica: wider, stronger, with zero vertical play and as recently I have offered a…

52100 Paramilitary 2 by the ocean.

So here I’m in Southern Bretagne near Lorient, city of Eric Tabarly with my Paramillie Exclusive Run in 52100 Ball Bearing Steel. For those who don’t know Sal is a fan, this is why Eric is named Eric. 🙂 The moisture and salt are…

SPYDERCO NATIVE C41CFP5 – CPM110V Three years update.

Last year, Jim Ankerson made a Military CPM110V test and was able to “cut 6,000 linear ft of cardboard checking every 500 ft for phone book paper sharpness, would still slice phone book paper after this stage, zero edge damage.” He had stopped but…

Spyderco C36 CPM M4 – Building a Patina

“After building a Patina, coat it with cheese.” This is an old trick Fred Perrin used to do just un case someone asked him about his knife: – Is it a weapon? – Nope I eat a lot of cheese. But the cheese grease…

Spyderco Yojimbo2 – Mission: Italian Salad.

This is my first post sent directly from my smartphone. As I’m looking for easier way to publish on the blog. It was made at the occasion of preparing a quick lunch with mozzarella, salade and tomatoes with my Yojimbo2. Nothing fancy really but…

SPYDERCO MILITARY C36PIN PART III: WHITTLING WITH GHOST.

We all know that the steel is only 30 percent of the equation for a great blade. And I’m not talking about the whole knife — ergonomy, lock quality, sheath, clip —  just the blade: the main “Matter Separator” to quote Sal Glesser. Apart…

Military C36PIN CPM M4 Exclusive Run — Ghost in the Machine

For a funny reason I give name to knives I keep. It gives them more personality. For a strange reason all my C36 Military got name starting with G like Glesser. My Military Sprintrun CPM Cruewear is “Gandalf” because of its grey handle. My…

Spyderco Native 5 – The Revenge of the Lockback

Some years ago the Spyderco Manix was hitting the ground with a mighty THUD!: a leaf blade and a back lock strong beyond any standards. Then came a mini Manix with a sub 4 inches blade and a stout feeling. Now imagine a refined…
