Yeah. I discovered I like Spydercos better right now but I really wanted a Benchmade 940 in the green aluminum scales so I bought it.

Observation on these knives. The Spyderco delica came much sharper than Benchmade 940

This Benchmade honestly feels kinda sloppy. Ive handled Benchmades for a total of 3 minutes prior to owning this one but I don't know.

I can literally move my hand in a downward motion then jerk it(lol) back up and the blade will fully open. Doesn't seem right.

Spyderco on the other hand seems a little too stiff


The 25 dollar RAT feels just as good honestly. Just not as sharp

Non-Assisted Benchmades should open that way with the axis lock, if you are holding the lock "open". If it is sloppy feeling when it is deployed and locked, that's another issue.

I have 5 of the 940 variants and they are all great, but I bought them before the company decided that their reputation wasn't worth a flying fuck.
I'm on my last bag of peas.

It feels tight when deployed and locked, so that's good. I fell in love with the 940 before the hubbub with the guns so I had to buy it. I'm still not opposed to them but I like the Spyderco better I have to say.

Where(if anywhere) do you list knives you want to get rid of?

Looking to buy a machinist tool box to store them at the moment. How do you store yours?

I generally never sell too much of anything, unless there is a solid cash return. I just sold my Nikon D850 and 24-70 VR lens, but only because I was able to recover $4,000 for them and I rarely used them anymore since I moved to the Nikon Z7 and got the 24-70 f/2.8 Z lens. Knives don't return much cash so I just hold them. I've sold two guns in my life and regretted one of them. The other was a POS Sig P239 that I shouldn't have bought in the first place.

I have given away a couple knives but haven't bothered to sell any (yet).

If you know, Where is a good secondary market for knives? Preferably excluding eBay

There used to be some good activity on https://www.bladeforums.com/ but I haven't really been over there in a few (8?) years.

Bought a boar hair brush for my beard. Barber that trimmed it up for me last time was using one on it while I was in there, and I really liked how it straightened it out a bit, so hopefully I’ll look a little more well kept. Will post pics of how it does once I get it tomorrow.

What's boar hair do that a normal brush doesn't? Sounds cool.

They’re just really firm bristles, and supposed to help spread oils around more if you’re combing that into your hair. Seems to be what most black people use to brush their hair.

I went for this one, since the normal size seemed tiny.

Ugh..

Got an email from my Linux machine this morning that I had two drives drop out of the RAID 5 array on that machine. Brought it down and reassembled the array, got 7 out of 8 working, so I was able to mount the volume. After some tweaking I got it to start rebuilding drive 8, but I am currently moving ~30TB off to my other servers.

I ordered another 8 bay QNAP box and 10 8TB Ironwolf drives. Will build up the new box with RAID 6 and then replace the bad drive(s) in the Linux box and re-create the array. Luckily I always buy extra drives for the arrays so when this happens it's easier to fix.

Money I would rather have spent in Hawaii in 2 weeks. :disgust:

I just bought a set of Micheline Pilot A/S 3+ for the car. Two of the old tires were cupping, 1 was dry rotted and the other had a nail.
