Re: Stretch Wave Sprint run!!!

Now the ROCK JUMPER on the other hand... that could be interesting with its lack-of-finger-choil and Wharncliffe blade, and the handle is pretty similar to the Stretch. I could see that with an Emerson hook.

Re: Stretch Wave Sprint run!!!

As most others have said, I love the wave and I love the Stretch, but I don’t think it’s the right combo.

Re: Mule Team MT28P CPM SPY27 Revealed!

This is my first Mule, and I’m brainstorming what I want to do with the handle! I would like to make it out of wood sourced from Wisconsin, but all the details are what I need to figure out cause I’ve never made a handle before. I’m really looking forward to trying out Spydercos own steel though! P...

I would probably do something like this. https://i.postimg.cc/GhNR117T/Spyderco-gb-broke-f01.jpg That definitely looks nicer than what I posted. One possible issue however, with it being hollow grind, the tip area might be significantly thicker behind the edge than the rest of the blade This would ...

Re: Anyone else dislike the wire pocket clip?

In general, I prefer the “spoon” clip over the wire clip. As others have said, I just find the wire clip doesn’t have the same retention. Most of the wire clips I have and have experience with have bent easily and don’t contact the scale anymore, which leads to them coming off the pocket too easily....

Re: Salt Series

Manix 2 LW Salt with translucent yellow scales!!! Obviously in LC200N, maybe give it a SE option along with the PE. Great idea, especially the SE-part... ;) This has been discussed here on a number of occasions. Keeping the CBBL rust proof on a Manix Salt could be a challenge. Namely the spring? I’...

What is this keychain knife?

This is on my Dads keys, not sure of the age but it’s probably from the 90s. Looks more like a mini Delica than a Ladybug.

Re: Best Handbag Folder for Wife?

For self defense, I think the ideal knife would be a Swick. Attach the sheath to the inside of the purse with a small length of cord so it gets pulled off as she pulls the knife out of the purse. Corrosion resistant, fast and simple to draw (no fumbling to open a knife under pressure) and a secure a...

Re: The best part of giving away a Spyderco...

I feel the same way, I gave my brother a Sage 5 for a wedding gift and I was worried he’d be too afraid to use it. Every time I see him I see the clip on his pocket though, and whenever he takes it out it’s got different crud on the blade. Makes me proud.

Re: Sal's Casual Bombshell Thread

Because the backlock CBBL is proven superior all around by knife experts! I’m guessing it's at least partially to keep costs on the lower side, and maybe partially due to limitations of the manufacturers. Have any budget line/Chinese-made spydies had comp locks? Edit: Whoops, just realized Sal said...

Re: Suggestion for changing Spyderco budget knife steel 8Cr13Mov

I would personally pay 70-80 for a Resilience in D2, what a beast that would be. D2 is another steel I see a lot of domestic Chinese companies using, so it’s gotta be pretty prolific and easy to get there. I’m extremely happy with the D2 in my Steel Will Modus.

"I have a design for Polestar back-lock planned for Golden"
I wonder why it’s being redesigned as a back-lock rather than a compression lock, or even just keeping the same liner lock.
