Re: What did you use your Spyderco for last?

Used my Chef to cut my new Resilience out of its packaging. Stumbled across it by happy accident today in the Walmart clearance aisle and couldn’t pass it up. It’s a big, bad beast of a knife! And a steal at $25! It’s not often I say something nice about Walmart, but I was certainly pleased with th...

Re: KnifeCenter CPM-CRUWEAR Native 5 with smooth black G10

Very nice, Filoso! :cool: Yesterday i took mine to the Sharpmaker-- brown rods, flats only. WOW! What an amazing sharpening response. This is my first Cruwear knife and the steel and the model made it an immediate impulse buy when it was announced. I was loving the smooth G10 when it arrived, but no...

All this talk of fancy stones.
Where I’m from, you haven’t ‘arrived’ in the knife scene until you can achieve hair popping edges from a humble house brick, stropped on the bottom of the wifes feet.

Call it pocket jewelry if you want but I bet my knives get used as much as yours. Not sure why you seem to think you're the only one who uses their knives.
Uhhh, haven't you heard? I'M the only person here that uses their knives!

Re: Just the brown SM flats

This afternoon i busted out the SharpMaker/ LazyMaker (Nice one, D!) to do some touch up. I generally don't let things get dull or even down to "working sharpness." I used only the flats of the brown rods on the 30 degree setting to make all of my 8 user Spydies sharp enough to easily shave or in ~1...

Re: KnifeCenter CPM-CRUWEAR Native 5 with smooth black G10

Well, this happened today. :D Been wanting a Native5LW in Cruwear for a long, long time. My well loved Maxamet blade works well in the smooth G10 handle too. I am quite pleased with this swap. :cool: Darby, when you did the swap did you find the pivot on the Cruwear Native to be keyed with a D-shap...

Re: Anyone else interested in a LW Native Chief?

Marc, I haven't been following Spyderco for too long so don't know about older examples, but the Endela went straight to FRN with no other version first. Also curious if there are older examples.

Re: Anyone else interested in a LW Native Chief?

I go back and forth every time this subject has come up. I can see the appeal of the FRN for certain uses and lower cost. As an owner and user of a Chief, it is hard to imagine that a LW version wouldn't be blade heavy. The only way around this that i am picturing is to keep the stainless backspacer...

Re: Small Knife Blues

I hope everyone that begs for a Chief sprint run plans to buy the S30V model. If you haven’t already bought one! ;) Seriously though, sales numbers matter and you really can’t rely on everyone else to make the investment for you. There won’t be a sprint run if everyone wants to “just wait for a spr...

Re: grasshopper sprint

I think it's a little funny that folks aren't into 12c27 and 14c28n, but ask for aeb-l. I think AEB-L is chemically equivalent to 13c27 and very similar to 12 and 14c. I like them all in my Moras. The 'fine grained' Swedish stainless steel are nice, even if maybe they aren't HTed hard enough for the...

Re: KnifeCenter CPM-CRUWEAR Native 5 with smooth black G10

I bought this for the steel, but the smooth G10 made a great first impression and has kept growing on me. It has a very premium feel, for lack of a better term. The G10 is smoother than the smooth contoured G10 of the Shaman, yet has about as good wet or dry grip as the Ti scales of the SpydieChef (...
