Re: Caly 3/3.5 interest Poll

I might be interested in the 3.5.

Sal has said that only the FRN model will be made in Taichung with screw construction. He also said that the original model would continue being built with pinned construction in Seki City.

Re: Native Chief sprint or exclusive?

I feel like a broken record, but I would be quite happy to see LC200N and Cruwear. The standard G10 handle in different colors would suit me.

And to stay on topic, I haven't heard anything about what's really going on and have been curious myself.

Re: H-1 is subpar???

H1 SE and LC200n PE are great choices.

S110v is super stain resistant too. I don't have any, but so I've read.

Re: Spyderco Value Knives

My experience with my Resilience, Efficient, Bow River and Byrd Rescue have been excellent. All are 'merely' 8cr13mov- plenty good for most less-demanding tasks or for those happy to touch up frequently. I still mostly prefer my mid and top-shelf Spydies, but find these value models, well... valuabl...

I hope they will release a super blue caly 3.5 Lightweight. I prefer slimmer knives. Superblue gets so sharp!
Would be cool. I am curious if we'll see Japanese steel in the Taichung built LWs?

Re: Sage 5 Lightweight

The price difference between this and the Para 3 version is a bit puzzling. They are essentially the same knife, besides the size of the thumb ramp and depending who you talk to...S30V being a better steel. They are the same size, feel similar in hand (at least the G10 versions do) I had a Para 3 L...

Re: Cleaning up DLC...it's easy!

My understanding is that DLC is at its most corrosion resistant when it is used as a medium to hold oil. The DLC itself doesn't add so much corrosion resistance, but it holds oil much better than bare steel, so adds corrosion resistance primarily as a means of holding oil on the surface. So, oil you...

Both of mine have a great build, but the G10 model has a much firmer detent, which i prefer. Otherwise they have similar action and build.

Re: Caly 3.5 Light Weight: Any News?

Still excited about this one! I'm curious about this one. Will it be re-engineered with an internal stop pin? Have there been internal stop pin designs out of Japan before? I can only think of Golden and Taiwan from memory The 3.5LW will be made in Taiwan according to Sal so it is possible that it ...

From what I understand, I am pretty sure the Seki sprint run this year will be K390. That includes the Endela and P4 LW.
I think that's right, but ZDP could be regular production, no?
