Re: Has the Coronavirus affected your daily life?

Luckily my job is an “essential service” working on material handling equipment, but my wife is basically out of a job being appointment based, and the general lack of normal supplies is annoying. And I just WAY overpaid for a case of 9mm, but it’s only going up.

Re: Reveal 4 Live!

I will say I’m a bit disappointed we didn’t see the new Swick in this Reveal. I thought for sure it was gonna be in the first one of the year.

Re: Straight Razor from Spyderco

I’m assuming very fine grain would be important as well for a fine edge.

Re: Straight Razor from Spyderco

I’ve always had the understanding that you want a (comparatively) soft steel for a straight razor, something that is then regularly touched up on a leather strap to keep it razor sharp. Is that incorrect? Would a modern “super steel” be fitting in that application?

Re: Reveal 4, What's your favorite release?

One thing I just noticed, and am curious as to why this is. Looking at the MSRP of the REX line. Specifically Manix LW and G10, vs Native LW and G10, both of which are made in Golden. First, both Natives are more expensive than the Manixes (Manixi?). One would think smaller knife with less material...

Re: CPM SPY27 steel

I’ll let other people guinea pig it but I am interested in the Manix LW over the rest... Unless there’s a military of course... I’m disappointed there wasn’t a military announced in this or the s45vn I agree, I’m very happy that they have the Manix LW in the new steel, and if I can’t get the Rex45 ...

Re: Reveal 4, What's your favorite release?

I am excited to see another blue Manix LW in SPY27, but I honestly might have to get a G10 Rex45 just cause it’s a sprint and I would like to try the steel. That Sun and Moon Chaparral is sweet too, I was wanting to get the Raffir Noble version, but I like the pearl inlay. I’m probably most excited ...

Re: Quick question: Upcoming K390 Endura family: Sprint runs or regular production?

That would be amazing if it was regular production! I like the color a lot better than green, it sounds to me like K390 is a bit more user friendly than ZDP and it also ensures I don’t go broke by buying so many knives all at once!

Apparently the yojimbo will have black liners. Sweet!
Finally a black compression lock that doesn’t have a mirror on the back of it! That uncoated tab has always bugged me.

Re: CPM SPY27 steel

Regular production used to mean "readily available" for the most part. Now.....not so much. Look at the maxamet para 3 and paramilitary 2. Are you sure that’s not just because they are between production runs? The Maxamet Manix LW and Native LW are readily available everywhere, the PM2 and Para 3 a...

Re: Sprints

The idea of sprints being sold exclusively through SFO sounds good in theory, but there’s a lot of details that make that not sound as appealing once you stop and think about it. Again, I like the concept, but then Spyderco has to deal with the massive increase in processing orders and shipping stuf...

Re: Sprints

Users will say this is a great idea. Collectors will cry that it reduces their value. So true. Same problem in the firearm community. It would be absolutely great if the Hughes Amendment was repealed, but then overnight a transferable M16 lower would go from $30,000 to $200, and the collection some...

Re: Sprints

I think a higher number would be good, but as curlyhairedboy said, Spyderco churns through models so much that if you are kicking yourself for missing one sprint, the next one is right around the corner. Most likely in a steel that will soon be the community fetish you don’t even know about right no...

Re: CPM SPY27 steel

i dont understand if it is a sprint or something like the s110v and maxamet versions. production or sprint. The SPY27 Para 3 LW and Manix LW are not grouped with the other knives on the “Sprint Run” page of the Reveal, and there is nothing mentioning limited/sprint run status in the descriptions of...

Re: Design details that are deal breakers

The biggest deal breakers for me personally are: 1. Heavily upswept edges (Reinhold Rhino, Warrior, Subvert, Tighe Stick etc) as they don’t work well for my uses and trying to sharpen all the way to the tip gives me carpal tunnel trying to angle the knife that much to keep the edge perpendicular you...

Re: Spyderco Custom Shop

They could do something like Protech, where they take a $250 knife and have it engraved, add inlays etc etc and sell it for $10,000. There might be some profit margin there :p
