I saw an antique bamboo fly rod with box at an antique shop. It was 50 buck, I do not know the dimensions of it. I am going back in sometime this week to pick it up is there anything I should look for regarding condition, brand wear and tear? What brands have held up when it comes to bamboo fly rods, is specific care required for them? Is 50 dollars a reasonable price. I would like to use it. Thanks.
BUY/COMMISSION. I’m looking to buy a waxed canvas knife roll. •SPECS: -My largest knife is a 12 inch meat carver. -10 inch chefs knife -8 inch chefs knife -4 inch paring knife
I will want to add more eventually but probably not much bigger than 12 inches. I also wouldn’t mind a slot for a sharpening steel if possible. I prefer waxed canvas with it being a more simple design, leather string to tie it closed and a flap to flip on top of the knife before closing. All are carbon steel so they a prone to rust. water will rust them and they can bend. Thanks. Ps: I’m open to suggestions, this this more of a rough outline. I don’t mind people throwing out ideas.
Edit: budget 180 dollars, open to suggestions just laying out a rough baseline of what I want open to almost anything 10 slots for knives biggest knife 12 inch blade with room for a cleaver. Thanks, any questions dm me. open to leather but I do not want it too bulky or stiff. Thank y’all.
Stripped what I’m hoping is the screw it’s self and not threads where the screw sits inside the handle on my spydiechef. Major f up on my end. I am wondering if this is common with the spydiechef and or Spyderco. I didn’t use too much tension when unscrewing it for the first time and it’s a pain to get the screw to sit properly to hold the wire pocket clip and grasp the threads to tighten down. Side question are the T8 screws for the spydiechef the same. Meaning are they interchangeable with the T8 pivot screws. Thanks.
Just a little discussion. Any discussion or idea on what y’all will be getting next or want to get is appreciated.
Spyderco Drunken Has anyone pre ordered the Drunken? Does anyone plan on picking it up when it’s released? I’ve been contemplating on picking up the Drunken when it comes out, however 400 dollars is a lot for a knife that I intend on using. What are your thoughts on it and/or other knives. Thanks!

Setup I’m running now: Rod- Orvis Clearwater • length 9’ • wt. 3 5/8 OZ. • 6wt line (number 14 under this on the rod)
Reel- Orvis Clearwater LA II for line weights 4-6, 5.5 oz., 3⅜" diameter
Line- Orvis Clearwater WF-6-F N20 Color- Green
Backstory: got in to fly fishing a few years ago and I bought this rod, reel and line from Orvis as a beginner setup. I really enjoy it, with fly fishing being the only fishing I do now. I fish for pan and bass in ponds some large some small, for the most part.
I’m looking for advice on what to get if I need something new when it comes to the rod and reel and with it being about 5 years since I got this setup I’m assuming I need new line. I’m in Colorado right now and I will be doing some fishing this week trout and what not. -if I could also have someone explain what line, taper and tippet I should get if I keep this setup I have now. setup pictures
