Re: Japanese steel Seki Sprints?

I Generally like clad steel blades. I am used to them from wood carving knives and tools, and find it extra cool in a folding knife. There are quite a few functional benefits of laminated blade steel, especially in certain use cases. For example: especially with a Scandinavian grind blade, a clad bl...

Re: Pleasant surprises from trying things we thought we didn't want

The thing I though I would never do.... buy a $200.00 knife. I was given a Tenacious when they first came out and thought a $70.00 knife was too nice for gutting and carving wood, so I stuck to my original Gerber Gator $30. One day, years later, I came around and started using the Tenacious and lov...

Re: Talking about your traditional knives

I’d say construction wise on par with any good example from case, with a little better finishing. These are ...

Re: Pleasant surprises from trying things we thought we didn't want

For me, it's FFG SE. Tried it for the first time on a tenacious. Truly remarkable performance. Now I need a SE Caribbean, a SE shaman, etc. I hear ya! I keep thinking about an SE Shaman, but think i really would rather an SE Stretch in that size class. Is there even a SE Stretch available anymore? ...

Re: The Ladybug is a full size knife

I've been carrying a Ladybug for a while starting with the pakkawood and now the K390. It seems like a small difference, but the added girth of the Manbug makes it so much easier for me to manipulate with XL hands. Hopefully I'll have a pakkawood and K390 version of it as well soon :) Did a wharnie...

Re: Siren

I would definitely buy a couple of serrated Sirens for my own use. I got my first serrated LC200N knife (Caribbean) a few months ago and have put it through some pretty hard use. The steel seems to perform well in serrated edge so I would definitely support a serrated version of the Siren. An SE va...

Re: Pleasant surprises from trying things we thought we didn't want

the only drawbacks are having to learn to sharpen serrations and potentially making less clean cuts. i don’t think either is a real issue. Trying to not derail too much here, but these are the two issues I hear the most besides snagging. Sharpening does kinda depend on having the right tools for th...

Re: Pleasant surprises from trying things we thought we didn't want

Thanks, All, for your contributions. I look forwards to hearing more voices and experiences. I'm not replying to everyone individually, but do appreciate the conversation-- especially on experiences with serrations. I always gravitated toward larger folders with blades between 3.3”-4” but recently p...

Re: What did you use your Spyderco for last?

To open a new 2.5l Osprey water bladder! The original in my old narrow gauge camelbak was... gross. Pleased to report the Osprey fits my old pack just fine, the fill mouth design I think is better than anything with a cap or plug, and the bite valve rocks! O/T Osprey packs and bladders are great.

I wouldn’t call S30V vanilla. It’s more like S30V is cookies and cream but your local ice cream enthusiast group keeps saying they’ve moved on to rocky road.
In your opinion, which steel would you consider vanilla?
420 or 1095.
Lovin these analogies... :spyder: :cool: :D

Pleasant surprises from trying things we thought we didn't want

Having gotten to know my preferences pretty well over the years, i try to buy knives (and other stuff) that i know i will like. I also like to be adventurous, and have been in many ways throughout my life. As we get older, though, it can be harder to want to experiment. I keep trying. And yes life i...
