Re: Spydiechef + RGT Clip?

The pocket clip is the first thing to get blemished if you actually use the knife anyways (aside from the blade maybe), so if you can save money by getting a blem that’s ideal!

Re: Spyderco Sticker Woes

The only time I’ve ever gotten Spyderco stickers is when I picked up an order in person from the SFO. It is nice when manufacturers include stickers with their products. I’ve got the round Magpul stickers coming out of my ears! Makes it easy to give them free advertising because just about everythin...

Re: Today I had a HUGE surprise with my Lil'Native... you were so right Doc !

Could somebody compare the Lil'Native and the Dfly with regards to comfort in hand? I know that is a pretty subjective request. I too am looking for the perfect urban carry (2.5" or less). Right now I have the Urban and am happy with it. I always figured my next small knife would be the Wharnie DFl...

Re: Waved Combo Edge TiCN Earth Tone Delicas and Enduras

I love that handle color with the black blade. Looks like an exclusive, where is/was that from?

Re: Anyone else interested in a LW Native Chief?

I’m sure one is gonna come, and feel the same way about FRN (see my tagline) so I’d say WHEN it does it would be on my list. I do agree though that I worry about it being blade heavy. At the same time, is the Pacific Salt blade heavy? I would think the proportions would be similar for a Chief with a...

Re: Delicafly

Has anyone actually put a dragonfly blade on a delica? Just wondering... I did for the photo in the first post. It technically functions but there is a lot of slop in the blade and lock bar as things don’t match up correctly. You also have to use the Dragonfly pivot hardware as the Delica’s will no...

Re: So when does this forum start speculating about the upcoming discontinued models???

I can see the collaborations like the Tropen, Subvert, Brouwer and Schemp Bowie going away. Probably a few fixed blades like the Sustain and Serrata. I could see some of the “special” standard models go away too like the Damascus Delica/Endura, the G10 Dragonfly and the tattoo Dragonfly. I hope the ...

Re: grasshopper sprint

I’ve been thinking about this all day, and if the steel is in fact 12c27 that makes the knife a lot more interesting. I’m a big fan of 14c28n and I love my stainless Mora, so even though I don’t think I have experience with 12c27 (I’m not sure what my “stainless” Mora Bushcraft actually is) I would ...

Re: Seriously considering a native salt how's everyone's experience been so far?

That’s unfortunate to hear the clip isn’t titanium. I wonder if it’s made out of some sort of rust resistant steel. Hopefully it’s not the coating alone that guarantees it’s corrosion resistance.

Re: Are you a collector?

I collect things that interest me, so I’m not much of a “completionist” and I don’t generally buy something I don’t particular like just because it would “complete” a collection. I probably have close to 300 Hotwheels at this point, which is certainly the largest collection of anything I own. My inc...

Re: grasshopper sprint

Well, I looked in my 2018 catalog and it also says 3cr, which Knife Center agrees with. I looked at Spyderco’s website, and they do list 12c27 Sandvik, but then when I checked Blade HQ they list 8Cr13Mov! In all the pictures I’ve found online one side of the blade says Spyderco and the other side sa...

Re: grasshopper sprint

14c28n? Is that some sort of special model? My 2019 catalog says the blade steel is 3cr, which is CERTAINLY no where near as good as 14c28n. If they did make the trio in 14c28n it would be a lot more interesting than they are now.

Re: Delicafly

It’s certainly an interesting concept, I was just thinking to myself that carrying a smaller blade might be useful, but I really dislike the handle on the Dragonfly. This would be a nice mixture.

Re: spyderco/esee collab?

An Esee/Spyderco collaboration would be awesome! Thinking about it though, what design would that be? If I’m not mistaken about any of these, the Izula is a Rowen design, many of the larger knives are of some sort of Ontario descent, and there are a slew of their knives that are themselves a collabo...
