1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    I got myself a Spyderco Valloton .... it is regarded by many as the Bentley of Spyderco knives ... looking at it I’d say more Bugatti Veyron than Bentley :D it is a thing of beauty (my photography skills do not do it any justice at all) ... S30v blade steel / stainless bolsters / polished G10 scales

    It is quite chunky ..No idea of its age ..I got it off a forum....It had no edge and was quite dull ...but not any more :D I polished the stainless and the G10 scales on my polishing machine and I have put a razor paper slicing edge on it with my KME sharpener ...I'd rate it 9/10 on condition ...doubt I will use it just a piece of eye candy and something to fondle once in a while

    Ahh yes I've seen it. I love knives but haven't got a practical use for the ones I like at the price they are.

    I'd like a pm2, a bugout, manix2 xl and also rather like the crooked river.

    But cant justify the price.

    I buy and sell spydercos all the time ... I’m not a fan of the Manix2 ball lock ... the Benchmade axis lock is much better ... I don’t like the FRN scales either so it has to be G10 ..I think everyone should have a PM2 .. I’ve had quite a few in different colours and blade steels but I always end up selling them and keeping my digicam

    I'm a lefty so even with some knives I'm left out. I do know you can get a PM 2 set up for a lefty. One day I'll get one.

    You can change the pocket clip to left carry and it can be tip up or tip down

    I think it's more with operating the liner lock comfortably with your left hand more than it is with the clip position.

    Not made but they do come up for sale now and again ... I just sold the blue one for £170 ... the silver one is a numbered ltd edition which I am keeping ... I could probably source you a blue one for under £150
