Cruwear and Patina, the Lemon Edition.

  Back to trying to get a patina on cruwear after my first attempt. Because lemon juice is not smelly and we use it a lot in the house, I have tried to let the blade all night in a tissue imbibed. Tissue seems…

Spyderco C81GPCW2 Paramillie CPM CruWear KnifeCenter Exclusive — Another Smooth Operator.

This one will be my 5th Paramillie 2, so it is a well known plateforme but the offer was to great to pass: a CPM Cruwear blade and a smooth black G10 handle: another exclusive run from the Knifecenter which is synonym of of…

52100 A guilty pleasure !

As you know my experience with 52100 has been enhanced with the owning of a great Paramillie 2 Sprint Run. This steel is staining and pitting just by gazing at it hence the forced patina I have done to protect the pivot’s hidden part….

Spyderco C223GPDGY Para 3 Maxamet Part II.

The Grey Mouser has been in my EDC rotation since it has arrived in my pocket. So this a little report. Maxamet is like a super CPM M4 to me, it cannot seem to get dull. I have deshouldered the edge and keep it…

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,…

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 Paramilitary 2 C81CF52100P2 52100 Exclusive Run – New Old Timer Workhorse !

I love Grandpa’s knives in a modern form, like the AFCK in M2HSS twenty years ago. But I was not able to jump on bandwagon to catch a Military in 52100. Lucky me, soon a Paramillie II designed by Sal and Eric Glesser was…

Spyderco C11WDP Delica HAP40/SUS410 Pakkawood Handles, KnifeCenter Exclusive — Delicate Lady/Gentleman Folder.

 If the Endura with Pekkawood handles is too big for you, there is the Delica alternative ! Again it is IMHO the best version ever made of that legendary folder. I have bought it from the Knifecenter and Howard Korn which is really proud…

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. Back in the 90’s I…

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 Part II: Ghost’s edge.

It has been 3 months since my Millie in CPM-M4 has landed in my pocket. I believe it’s time for an update about it since it has been used a lot. It is my first “new handle” C36 as mentioned here in my previous…

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…
