Re: What’s up with the military?

I'm not interested in a Military 2. Any deviation from the current model will make this less. For those that want tip up or something else there is plenty to choose from. Leave the military for those that like it just as it is.

Re: Six-Thousand Nine-Hundred Forty Days

A darker more regulated and worse world ever since. I want my old world back. I was driving to work when it was unfolding. I thought they were talking about a movie. The same thing happened in Australia when the Port Arthur massacre happened. I feel angry that the actions of a hand full of crazy bas...

Re: Re-finishing Sharpmaker Rods

It would be good to see a coarser ceramic stone for the Sharpmaker. Coarser than the medium but still a ceramic.

Re: Hollow Grinds

Thanks for the segue into hollow grind straight razors Emanuel. Fascinating stuff, those blades must be almost paper thin. And done by eye too. There seems to be some love for the Sebenza grind and I agree. Although for me the absent knife in question needn't be a clip point necessarily although tha...

Hollow Grinds

I'd like to see spyderco do more hollow grinds. There is a lot to be said for a blade that doesn't get thicker behind the bevel with each sharpening. I'm not saying hollow grind everything but some HG choices would be welcome. I like the sheepsfoot Griptillian with the Spydie hole. A similar regular...

Re: I'm falling out of love with the Compression Lock

For me the compression lock is fiddly and more awkward to use. I much prefer liner locks and frame locks.

Re: Spyderco Siren Release Date?

I can't think of a better survival folder.

Decent size, Light weight for size (an ounce an inch), reliable lock back and highly rust resistant. I can't think of any other boxes to tick.

Re: Paramilitary XL (Para 4) vs Military 2

Any option is OK so long as the original Military remains as it is.

Re: Forum Knife 2020 - No Holds Barred!!!

A current design Ti frame lock Mille. S35VN or XHP. Especially if there's a chance this will be phased out in favour of a compression lock.

Re: coated lc200n?

I think an easy to find if dropped fluro green (like the yellow FRN salt knives) would be better than "toxic green". I might be interested in a military or Shaman with a coated blade but have little interest in anything else.

Re: M390 or Cruwear Delica?

Thanks, I until I looked more carefully thought only knives plus and GP knives had this. Neither will send outside the US. Now I see there were others who I buy from had it but they are all sold out now. I'm having a bad run, I missed the teal dragonfly, the red G10 PM 2 from DLT and now this one. O...
