    Anyone know anything about the My Tighe knife?

    I know we have a couple of knife enthusiasts in here as I saw a knife thread a while back. (I believe siu had cut her hand open or something) Basically I'm looking for an EDC knife. I came across this knife. It's moderately lightweight and pretty small. It also happens to look bad ass in black. Does anyone have this knife or know about the steel quality? (1.4116 stainless) Thanks!

    Edit: It seems that assisted opening is not illegal. Can anyone else chime in on this? I know automatic opening is, but this knife is assisted. I don't want to get in trouble for it..

    The chemical compostion of 425M is: C .4% - .54%, Cr 13.5% - 15%, Mn .5%, Mo .6% - 1%, P .035%, Si .8%, V .1%.

    For 1.4116 it is: C .45% - .5%, Cr 14.5% - 14.8%, Mn .4%, Mo .6%, P .02%, Si .4% - .6%, V .1%

    My specs for 425M come from the Spyderco steel chart, and for 1.4116 come from the CRKT Steel Facts. The CRKT specs differ in those on the german site, but are close enough to tell me that 1.4116 is much closer to 425M than it is to either 440A or 440B.
    1.4116 is a decent steel. Kershaw uses it on their military boot knife.

    Can't help you with the auto opening issues. They sell auto opening knives in WalMart here.

    IIRC, Siu cut herself with a Benchmade Griptilian... a pretty decent EDC blade - that was my EDC after I lost my Benchmade AFCK. My current EDC is a Chris Reeve Sebenza.

    Can't see the link at work, I'll check it out at home.

    From what I understand:

    Spring assisted knives (which blades are still pushed out with the finger) are legal.

    Automatic knives (switchblades - push of a button) are illegal unless you are military or law enforcement.

    Funny you should post that. I was stuck on the tanto blade or the drop point that I ended up with.

    I love my Griptilian. I want to get the mini one next. It would be easier for me to carry in my pocket.

    The 154cm is a VERY good steel. It's very strong and is resistant to staining (rust). The Covert knife by Gerber that I have has been through hell and high water from it's previous owner (it was passed onto me) and the blade still looks new and has never been sharpened.

    How much of a difference is there between the two steels of the benchmade/CKRT?

    That's the coolest knife I've seen in a while.

The young Japanese makers explained that they take the bark of the cherry tree and soften it until they can cover the wooden handle and sheath with an almost undetectable joint.

    Keep an eye out on steep and cheap. They occasionally have some real steals on knives. I bought 6 Sogs from them a couple of weeks ago for ~$40 that go for over $100 in the exchange and $130 out in town. Spring assisted. I have also bought a bunch or CRTK knives from them as well.

    Spring assisted are not illegal in the states I have lived in, CA, RI, AZ, GA, VA, HI... but that does not mean they arent illegal in some states. In fact in many states push button knives are not illegal as well. In CA a switch blade is defined as a knife that comes straight out.. therefore, side opening, button push knives are actually legal.

    Nevemind the title "Kitchen knives" but here is a good quickie tutorial on the different blade steels. Keep in mind that some of the comments are meant for kitchen use, not for tactical use.

    The CRKT linked above is a good knife. My coworker has one and can attest that in addition to being quite sharp and holding it's edge well, it also holds up well to being skidded down the highway at 60mph with your body on top of it. You see, it was in my friend's pocket when he had to dump his motorcycle at speed and between the knife and his large wallet he saved a fair bit of SKIN.

    Actually I just want to know how in the hell to sharpen my Spyderco--hard as a rock,
    harder. Dull at the moment.

    This is a good knife for every day. It's small enough to not get in the way but 3 inches is big enough for most daily chores.

    The 13C26 Sandvik steel is used to make razor blades and industrial blades, very good stuff.

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    Use it well, but remember, it's not the size of your tool that matters, it's your mastery of said tool!

    (this is my first time being a sig line, be gentle)

    It depends on where you are. In California, you can own and carry a teensy little one like this one- http://auctions.overstock.com/aimage...41209745_1.jpg Big ones can only be used for dramatic performances.

    In most other states, they are illegal as you said.

    I'm assuming that is a good one and not a cheapy.
    What do you think of it?

    Yeah, its a nice one......I got it from a serious collector site who
    doesnt deal cheepo, brittle stuff. If you dont hold onto it tightly,
    it could fly out of your hand. Its got a serious kick !!
    He just got a 17'5 er in that I might check out but its very expensive
    and not for the employmentally challenged as I am right now

    .::EDIT::. Do you get the crazy hillbilly knife show on your cable late at
    nite on the weekends ?? It should be checked out for the sake of morbid
    hilarity, if nothing else

    I'm in Georgia, Lem.
    We'll put a fourth mortgage on the trailer or title loan the pickup for the right knife.
    Hillbilly knifery shows are on prime time.

    I have a penchant for Laguiole knives.
    I could see wanting a real Italian.

    Got a heavy very sharp knife from my father - it's in a well worn leather case - he took it hunting with him ever since he had it as a teenager (i think that's when he got it), but the freaking name on it is Sharp. Now go google sharp knife. Of course I know knives are sharp! I found Sharp Knife - name of a native american, Sharp Knife the blog spot and of course everything you find about knives says they're sharp.

    So I have little to go on ---- Google Queen admits defeat!
