I'm sorry I'm afraid there's only one solution here. Gotta divorce this guy and start over.
Sad but true. You had a good run.

Thanks Evil D, for the coffee in my sinuses.

Edit to add, a UKPK is a great smallish knife and light weight if a slip joint would work.

I had no idea the native had gone to linerless g10?
Quite a while back now. Maybe 2 years? I think it coincided with the change from S35vn to S30v.

Re: What are you buying from Reveal 6?

Wood Chaparral for sure. Not much else is really jumping out at me in this one. I like the Pac/atl salts in green/lc200n but would prefer a smaller knife. If the regular salt/Tasman follow, I'm in for sure. Would be interesting to see how a ffg serrated hawkbill would work. Also I like green better ...

Pie in the sky:
- a regular production cruwear chief in a nice burgundy micarta or g10.

Maybe somewhat realistic:
- Lil native back lock salt in lc200n

Re: DLT Exclusive Delica OD Green FRN and Coated Cruwear

Woof, Olive drab. I had to wear that color for four years, if I never see it again that would be just fine.

Good luck to those who want one, it's a great steel on a great model if you like the color.

No...they would most likely retail for around $169 and that would be too much for me to spend on a fish knife.
What leads you to believe it would cost $55 more than a similarly sized police 4?

Re: what's best back pocket knife for doing stupid things?

Basically anything by Cold steel. Recon 1 or the ad10. Espada xl or Voyager xl if you really want to cater to your inner 12 year old. :D I don't particularly like their knives and loathe their advertising (so much cringe), but knives for jackassing is kinda what they do. They design them to beat on ...

Re: Why all the Manix love?

Speaking of the manix, are they behind on production because of covid or something? I was thinking of picking one up from the SFO for a bday present for my brother. Standard PE g10, blacked out g10, blurple g10, and blacked out LW all sold out. Not mad or anything, I'm just surprised that they are s...

Re: Just saying hello

If you're active duty military, veteran or first responder the opfocus discount (50% of MSRP) is great. If memory serves it was relatively painless to enroll as well. Otherwise expect to pay MAP (70% of MSRP) at a reputable dealer. If it's significantly less than MAP it is likely counterfeit. Except...

Re: Para 3 liners wtb

Welcome to the forum! AFAIK the only parts kits made were for the Delica & Endura, and I haven’t seen one of those for years. I don’t know if any aftermarket scales delete the liners on the P3 - if so, you might find some for sale. The liners are part of the lock so I doubt it. If I needed liners I...

Welcome! You seem to have jumped in with both feet! I would make suggestions, but you've already done pretty much what I would have recommended. You've picked a good variety of different sizes, blade steels, blade thickness, lock types and even a couple of different handle materials. This should giv...

Re: Spyderco kitchen knives?

I would like it if Spyderco offered a standard European style chefs knife. They did, kinda. It was the K12. It was a bit over 7", so not a full 10" monster. But, it's close to what you're wanting. Yeah I missed the boat on those. It was discontinued right around the time I was last in market for a ...

Re: Slim or none?

Other Chinese makers like Reate use S35VN, RWL34 and M390 in their knives. It does bump up the price considerably, but it shows that China isn't limited to 8Cr and related steels. It's not that no one in China can use better steel, it's just the factories Spyderco uses either don't have the capabil...

Re: Have Titanium and Micarta Handles Become Extinct?

I would feel better about micarta's long term prospects if they would offer it on a regular production model. All of the micarta has been on sprints or exclusives as far as I can tell. Even with the IMMENSE popularity of the Cru Carta shaman, they didn't make the zwear/micarta regular production, ju...

Re: Slim or none?

Ah my mistake, I don't know why I was thinking the Astute was made in Seki. I probably will get the base model soon. And I know the numerous calls for an upgraded Tenacious have gone unanswered. That's why I figured an upgraded Astute would be highly unlikely, but it's still fun to consider. And in...
