Re: Anyone else’s brain trick them like this?

Re: Sage 5 Lightweight

I thought the whole point of the Sage series was to show off different lock designs. So IMHO instead of a LW version Spyderco should have came out with another lock.

Re: Neck Knives? Good or Bad?

I can't help but think they are kinda dumb. The only one I think that would be useful is the Cold Steel push daggers, but in my country a push dagger is a prohibited weapon and will send you to jail. The problem is a neck knife is either too big and too heavy, or it's too small to be useful. What e...

Re: Micarta Shaman 2nd Sprint Run

I know lots of folks like the hassle and chase of sprints, but why not just make the Micarta and [high end steel] Shaman a regular production knife, like the S110V/Blurple ones. Demand is clearly through the roof, and it seems silly to keep a great material and great tool away from people who might...

Re: Micarta Shaman 2nd Sprint Run

People don't understand how markets work. (They are like a pyramid.) and a products life cycle. (Introduction, growth, maturity, and decline.) No matter how awesome a knife is, eventually you reach 100% of your target market. Meaning most people who can have bought it, and you see a huge drop in sal...

Re: Opinion of new Toyota Yaris

My friend bought a Yaris when they first came out for his wife who is a Teacher. They were getting incredible fuel mileage he was getting way over 400 miles to the tank.(700 km) but I don't think the new Yaris are quite as good. The car how ever road like a go-cart. The suspension was super stiff, t...

Re: Manix v Manix XL v PM2

https://i.imgur.com/2vUFaLh.jpg As you can see I have all 3. (Plus the Manix LW's) The question is how are you planning on using the knife? The Manix 2 XL is a beast of a knife and feels extremely sturdy. But the downside is that it's extremely wide and takes up a lot of pocket room. If you put it ...

Naw, I love jimping. The more the merrier! I wish the Lil Native had jimping.

Jimping on the blade is cool, but on a handle made from G10 is just silly and a hot spot.

Suggestion on how to greatly improve the Manix 2

After finally owning 4 different versions of the Manix 2, I feel like I have a simple suggestion that would make the Manix 2 more attractive and better... :cool: Remove all the jimping from the liners The liner jimping some how makes the knife look more busy and less expensive. And it feels awefull!...
