Re: Watu vs. Deka

I gotta say, USA made 3.25in 20cv knife with machined g10 scales for $140 is a pretty astonishing value. Hogue could shake things up a bit if they keep that kind of aggressive pricing and start expanding the lineup.

Re: Kiwi 5?

Those polished scales are a HUGE improvement. Bolsters like the older versions With scales like those would be about perfect. Polished micarta, wood or bone would look great as well.

Re: Kiwi 5?

I've always liked this design, particularly the 4. I'd love to see a sprint or exclusive along the lines of the knifecenter Hap 40/wood series. I think it would be a perfect fit for the design. Traditional scale material and non stainless steel like grandad would carry but with modern edge retention...

Re: Salty Dodo

Down for a SE for sure especially if they make it cbbl. I'd buy a dodofly as well.

P.S. is it bad that I pronounce dodofly as dewdewfly in my head even though I know it should be doedoefly? It feels wrong.

Re: BladeHQ M4 Manix XLs

Looks like these are both back in stock again. At least a few of them. Looks like 2 Satin and 4 or more DLC. I wonder if people decided they were too big and returned them. That, or flippers who figured out they couldn't instantly resell for $400. :rolleyes: This is probably the reason. Hopefully i...

Equilibrium. Exemplifies Ed Schempp's "looks odd, but oddly functional" aesthetic.

Re: Crazy Good Deals Part 2!!

Hey, heads up, Blade HQ has some of the black bladed M4 Manix XL's back in stock - I got a notification last night and missed it, so I missed out on the regular one (which I wanted), but the coated blade version still has a few in stock. $180. https://www.bladehq.com/cat--Spyderco-Manix-2-XL-Exclus...

Re: Behold! The elusive "Dodofly"!

The Dodofly would have a more complicated grind which increases production costs. I suspect it would be closer to $95, but would pleased if it came in nearer to the Salt hawkbill. The matriarch is a reverse s blade endura and costs $14 more than an standard endura. If you add that difference to the...

Re: Behold! The elusive "Dodofly"!

Well, MKM thinks it is a useful blade style as they produce their ISONZO in a similar sized package in reverse-S. I'm not sure Spyderco could hit the same price point while still making it in Japan. That Isonzo is $84.90 vs the Hawkbill Dragonfly Salt @ $71.40, so a much lower price point than the ...

Re: The weirdest thing just happened...

Pretty sure the K04 wasn't branded as a Spyderco when first released in the early 80s. That's probably why it has no hole.

Re: Spyderco Dodo?

I bet we'll see a BHQ jade/DLC Dodo sooner or later. They've run satin & DLC for every release so far. They've done Satin and DLC on a bunch but there are still a few that haven't got a DLC version like the Lum Tanto, Lum Chinese, and of course the Dodo. I woud definitely welcome a DLC variant of t...

What ever happened to the Full Size Manix Lock back with Eric's lock improvements? S110V or S90V would be pretty sweet on that.
Judging by how quickly the manix lock back was discontinued, I don't think they will be doing sprints or a bigger model.

Re: d2 the china line...?

I think a stainless upgrade (bd1n or 14c28n) would make more sense from a business standpoint than d2. If the guys I work with are typical, folks who buy budget knives don't know what steel it is made out of and probably don't keep it sharp. So if they've owned the knife a year, they won't remember ...

Re: Making G10 Scales Smooth like Bombshell Scales

They sometimes do smooth g10 (Vallaton, Hungarian, one eyed Jack), but it seems most folks like a grippier texture. Knife center did a smooth g10 cruwear native that took a long time to sell out and I don't think it was the cruwear that was holding up the sales.

That looks really good. Solved my only problem with that Sprint run. I usually like colorful knives, but I just can't do orange.

Re: Screws do not come off Native 5 Salt

I don't own a salt version, but assuming it's like the regular frn version, it sounds like the threaded inserts in the frn might be loose. Maybe send it in for warranty repair? A screw that won't tighten down would concern me.
