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…

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…

Spyderco Yojimbo2 C85GM4P2 CPM-M4 The Jade Warrior.

This is a bud of an article about the BladeHQ exclusive Yojimbo2. At least there is picture. Story will come later in multiple update. I have reviewed the Michael Janich’s Yojimbo2 many time here. And I have been waiting for a tougher alloy for…

Massdrop Ferrum Forge Gent — The Ultimate Contender.

My first experience with Massdrop exclusive design was one year ago. The Falcon has been a surprise in its quality and design and since has been my Spyderco Techno replacement. The Gent is even a better deal !! We are in presence of a…

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…

Convexing Cruwear!

This time I have decided since the blade of this Paramillie is thin, to protect it with some gaffer tape. Same process as usual: diamonds, then ceramic and stropping on leather. The DC4 of Fallkniven and the Spyderco Double Stuff 2 were used. I…

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…

Spyderco C210CFP Reinhold Rhino: The Mini Chinook ?

My first impression is that this little folder is designed as a very strong little workhorse. Nested liners, carbon fiber, compression lock, integral guard (short choil), full flat ground blade, belly on the edge ? What no to like ? The hour glass clip…

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…

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…

Nowadays rendering of three iconic 90’s lock: Liner Lock, Back Lock and Integral Lock. They are plethora of locks since the 90’s when the Tactical Folders trend started. “Tactical” , a term which has been mainly used in a marketing way, means you can…
