Re: Reveal 4, What's your favorite release?

Never in a million years did I think the Ladybug would be the first released in the k390 grouping! That's the one I wanted! And the: Watu, Rex45 Chief and spy27 Para3 LW. Heartbreakers: The Astute. Oh my, if that had a backlock, better steel and .5" more edge it would be perfect! Almost looks like ...

Re: First Spyderco knife to obtain in 2020?

Technically not the whole knife, but I ordered some Delica scales from BOOMER52 for my last Spyderco of 2019.

Re: Straight Spine Stretch

Does spyderco.com ever stock sprint runs like this? It seems like they are available for purchase but always listed out of stock. Thanks.

Re: Manix 2 lightweight choices or ?

Good choice! A little help in caring for your DLC blade...after using it, it may look like the blade is scratched. But, I'd be willing to bet it's actually scrape marks of the material you were cutting and not an actual scratch to the blade. Try some Flitz polish to help remove the marks. I persona...

Re: Manix 2 lightweight choices or ?

Depending on your sharpening skills, what you plan on using it for, or what you feel like spending...in the LW format, you really cant go wrong with the BD1 models (Satin or DLC) I have the DLC model and is a dedicated camping knife and Iove it for a hair over $100. Takes quite a bit of abuse, but ...

Re: Manix 2 lightweight choices or ?

As others have said, seems like there aren't many sprints/exclusives of the lw manix. You might check on ebay or other swap and sells for the brown frn/xhp exclusive. I got mine on ebay for about the original sale price. Thanks. There was a brown just sold on another forum. Should have jumped on it.

Re: Manix 2 lightweight choices or ?

Lefty here. I have no trouble using a “right handed” PM2. I was planning on picking up a lefty but then they put out a Cruwear model and well CRUWEAR! I also have a Cruwear Manix 2 from a few years back, (it was my first Spydie actually). I would choose it over the lw any day, but I’m not a fan of ...

Manix 2 lightweight choices or ?

My current EDC - mini grip sheepsfoot, Chaparral, Southern Grind Spider Monkey and Buck Marksman Gray Ghost I’m strongly interested in a Manix 2 lightweight. Looking at S110V blade. Should I get this one or wait for another Sprint run in some other blade material? Related - I’m left handed, so do I ...

Re: Chaparral FRN CQI

Carrying the Chaparral for about two weeks off and on. It's great. I only have one small nitpick. The honeycomb FRN is very grippy and almost sharp, like fish scales. I especially notice it when I put my hand in and out of my pocket. Will the scales soften up over time? Maybe my hands are too sensit...

Last week I screwed up my address on my order since we moved, it got cancelled and then Chap went out of stock. Checked Spyderco website this morning and I think I got one. It shipped same day. Yay!
