The Spyderco PPT Round 2 — The Son of Anarchy.

Strangely I am coming back often to the PPT when I first thought it would be a collection and a safe queen. Safe queen my a$$ ! Pardon my French but there is something quite sensual when holding this knife, something which makes the other…

Spyderco C135CFP Perrin PPT — Portable Praetorian Tool.

The first PPT was release eight years ago. It was the mind child of Sacha Thiel, Philippe Perotti and of course Fred Perrin which it got all the power. For the record Philippe Perotti aka “PP” was Fred’s student in knife making (and Fred…

Manly Comrade S90V – Heavy Duty Slipjoint !

What strikes first when you hold the Comrade is its thickness and weight. This 9 cm blade non-locking slipjoint folder is massive; once open, see how its beautiful classical lines are gentle to the eye. I have chosen the CPM S90V version with a…

MANLY PEAK S90V — THE BULGARIAN WONDER AT WORK.

The Manly Peak is a workhorse. So, it has been put to good use in various tasks. The main features of that folder are a very thin geometry and a zero play mid backlock. It has not developed any play and the edge has…

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…

Yojimbo2 vs Paramilitary2 — Face 2 Face !

I got two requests for writing that little comparaison hence a lot of users are hesittating between those two radical designs. My Yojimbo2 is a special edition as is my Paramillie 2. Both got carbon fiber handles. Both are made in Golden, Colorado, USA,…

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…

Yojimbo’s C85GP2 and C85CFP2 and a Ronin.

Following my first glimpse on a the Yojimbo Special Run of 2015 , I present you today the classic version of the Yojimbo: G10 handle and S30V steel. There is no difference between the knives but 4 grammes in favor of the CF version (110…

Yojimbo 2 C85CFP2 – S90V & Carbon Fiber

“Number 17” has entered in my life yesterday as I was angry about an order blocked in the airport for 12 days. I had ordered a Yojimbo 2 (G10, S30V) and since the 5th of May it has disappeared from the tracking. So yesterday…

Rockstead Higo-J in the spring time

I don’t have cherry trees or I would have pictured the Higo with some cherry tree blossoming… but here we got roses almost a month earlier ! So it was the occasion to picture the blade in the middle of them. As you can…
