Re: Native 5 FRN in S90V

The frn is definitely not as smooth as the g10 versions with the bronze washers, but with use they smooth out pretty well.

I'm not positive about this because I don't have the maxamet version, but I'm pretty sure that stonewashed blade finish is exclusive to the maxamet version.

Re: Native 5 FRN in S90V

It's a screaming deal on an s90v knife. The cheapest you are likely to find, at least from a company I would trust to heat treat it properly. There was at least one case I'm aware of where a company was selling inexpensive s90v knives at around 55hrc which made it perform more like vg10. If you want...

Re: Jade para 3 & st nicks red para 3

Also, I don't believe those dealers rerun their exclusives. I'm not positive on St Nick's, but I've heard bladehq reps refer to the m4/Jade exclusives as "one and done" like a sprint run. Artificial scarcity drives up prices.

Hey Vivi,

FYI, There is a XL version called the "Cliff Jumper" (Warnie), (recommended by a member) and the "Sequoia", (leaf) both 4.0" blades, just for you and me. :cool:

Re: Any interest in ~1.0 mm blade thickness?

Never thought I'd say this, but that's too thin for my taste. The only knives I have that are ~1mm thin are kitchen paring knives and I wouldn't want that much flex in a folder. I don't have any problem with them making it if there's a demand, I just wouldn't buy one. I would prefer if more knives w...

Re: Spydercos for steak knives?

I’ve had a K05 for almost a decade. Not sure I’ve sharpened it to be honest. When I want to do a solid for a cook I get them one of those serrated utility knives. They are always thrilled and I spend less time trying to explain why marble cutting boards are the spawn of the underworld . So much thi...

Re: Endela Vs Strech 2 blade géometry (belly)

Processing a deer falls into four categories for me. Field dressing, skinning, breakdown/deboning and then packaging. For field dressing (removing all the innards while still in the woods) 3-3.5 inches is ideal. I was taught that you want to field dress a deer with a blade that is the length of you...

Re: Endela Vs Strech 2 blade géometry (belly)

Most hunters I know use short bladed (3-4in blade) knives for skinning. You need fine control and don't want to let the tip get away from you.

Re: SPY27 PM2 Colorado Edition

That blade with a solid red, white or blue g10 handle would look nice. And I think the Colorado flag handle would look great with a plain blade. Together, it's just too much for me. If I were from Colorado, I might grab one and do a blade swap.

This is a self defense minded person's dream knife.
I'm actually having trouble seeing why I'd want this one instead of my Canis.

I might have to buy it to compare in hand. :)
Well to start, it's $38 cheaper than the canis.

Re: Delaware knife laws and Spyderco tenacious 3.39

The great thing about Spyderco is, they have a knife for pretty much any silly knife law your jurisdiction may be enforcing. See: Chicago, ukpk, roadie, pingo etc.

Re: Wish “salt” blades came on different handle colors other than yellow or green

The salt, Atlantic, Pacific and Tasman at least can be had with black handles and the salt and Pac salt can be had with a black blade too.

None of the newer lc200n models yet though. Unless you count the all titanium spydiechef.

Re: The upcoming Salt 2 ffg: Spydercos (Mini-) Bugout alternative and more? Perfect ultralight hiking knife?

I've said for a while now that Spyderco needs to offer something in that sweet spot of 3" usable edge that's ultralight. Benchmade is printing money with the bugout and Spyderco doesn't have an knife in that exact niche. The endela and rockjumper are more than 50% heavier, the ukpk has no lock. The ...

Hello and welcome. It looks like only the combo edge model is still in production. https://www.spyderco.com/catalog/details/C07/2 The Spyderco site, at least on my browser, only shows in stock options on the drop down menu for ordering. So you can only see combo edge stainless police because PE and...

Re: Looking for a second Spyderco for EDC

I enjoy many Spyderco back locks. The native series is my personal favorite. The native 5 is available in multiple steels and with frn or g10 scales and is just under 3" blade for legal restrictions. The native chief is only available in g10/s30v unless you catch a Sprint run, but comes in at 4 inch...

Re: The Return of the Persian

My ideal would be bolstered, hollow ground, non-black micarta, wood or polished g10. For steel, something stainless would be nice (spy27 would be great). I generally prefer screw construction, but pins really work with this design, particularly with the bolsters.

Re: Why are so many people concerned with perfect blade centering?

Comparison. I'm going to pay 100-200-300 dollars for a knife, and if there is a possibility of misalignments, and on another model/producer/factory isn't (especially if the price on the model with consistently better finish is lower, let alone much lower), I would be pretty frustrated. Of course ge...
