Nice review Brownie. Looks like that knife had some pretty good abuse there. I imagine the cross-beam prying would have left many knives tip-less!

Yes, I agree and also of note was the lateral stresses on the lock and frame which did not suffer in the least here.

Thanks for the comments

No problem...I like the Folders site...comprehensive info and good reviews.

Any chance you'll be testing a SOG in the near future? I like the ones I've handled, and they seem to be reasonably priced for a decent knife. Some of their locking mechanisms are novel as well. The Mini X-Ray I've got is enjoyable :)

Hi Travis,

I don't have any in the lineup at this time.

Appreciate the comments on the site.

Brownie,

Still have a problem with your knife test link windows; they load much larger than my 13 inch monitor which means shifting back and forth. And at some point the scroll bar on the right dips out of reach.

I get that also on the home machine with 17" monitor but the resolution at work loads it to fill the full screen which is 15inches [ flat ].

Urghhhh!!!!!

Brownie,

There is some javascript you can use to load the pop-up windows at a specified size. You could even do a test to see what resolution their monitor is, then based on that, size the pop-up accordingly.

Let me know if you need any links to the javascript stuff!

Actually, I have nothing to do with design or maintenance of the server or website. Thats Johns [ my partner ] job.

I only write/review etc. for the site.

If you go to the homepage, email John and explain the dilemma, he may do something about it, it's worth a shot anyway.

I appreciate the offer to help though, thanks

Hey...no problemo Brownie. I'd be glad to help out with it if the site needs it. I've got a 20 incher here (monitor, I mean) so I have no probs w/ the display of the site :cool:

Gentlefolks,

may I comment on this?

I am repsonsible for the maintenance of the web site, so I guess I have to apologize for any problems I have created. But it is a hard job to please everyone, especially with the plethora of hardware out there.

Both my web sites are as simple as possible, in an effort to offer the visitor a nice environment. I use what is currently consider as "common base", in other words a 1024x768 analysis, which most contemporary monitors support. I guess the site could be made simpler, but I just can't promise I'll do it, my twins are taking too much of my time these days, so much so that I do not have the time for a major reorg job.

If someone has a problem, e-mail me, and I'll be glad to help you out with your particular concern, the address in in the site.

Kind regards and may you all have a very Happy New Year.

Hi Brownie,

I guess I am not a frequent visitor, but I do drop in from time to time (enough to remember my password!! LoL).

Just received my New Years gift too, a Spyderco Delica, nice little thing.

See you later

The Delicas are little work horses.

Happy New Year to you and all the 1911 members.

Stay safe

Brownie
