Re: Poll: more CBBL

It would be instructive to learn how many failures of the black plastic ball cage have been reported out of how many such models sold. The black cage on my Manix LW feels very robust. Are they a fibered nylon like the FRN handle scales? If so, then my confidence in them is very high, as FRN is very...

Re: HRC Database

It seems that some of the Mules are run harder, which makes sense, since they were meant for testing essentially. The K390 Pm2 and Para 3 were run softer than the P4, and if I'm not mistaken, the Mule had an even higher hrc than the P4. The Zdp-189 knives were supposedly run harder a few years ago ...

Re: How was your 2019?

This was probably the best year ever for my knife life. This was the year I scored the ultimate (in my opinion) Delica, the Hap40 Pakkawood Knifecenter exclusive. Having started my Spyderco journey with a Delica, Manix 2 and PM2, it's good to get an upgraded version of a knife I've used for nearly a...

Re: Knifejoy Exclusive Para Military 2

The problem with them selling for $165, is that some people miss out. Some people then complain about missing out, and put their frustration all on Spyderco...as if it’s their fault as a company. Well Joey I have been hearing it both ways this year. Some retailers have told me it is indeed Spyderco...

Re: HRC Database

Urban AEB-L- 59.1 and 59.3 That's interesting - about the same hardness that Mora runs their 12C27. I would have guessed mine was a little harder, by the feel on the stones. I would have thought they'd aim target hardness in the 60-62 range. I think Sal mentioned their AEB-L mule proto was in that ...

Re: Discussion: What do you think is the best size for an EDC folder?

I live by the "what were you doing when the cops searched you" mentality and just avoid situations where it can become an issue. As for locking things up around kids, I keep firearms locked up but never my knives. Do you guys lock up your kitchen knives too? When my son was born I was heavy into co...

Re: Black Friday cyber Monday DEALs?!?

BladeHQ has their Black Friday sale up now, although It included a shaman for $187 which I'm pretty sure is standard... there are many things I love about BHQ but the way they run their ‘sales’ always confuses me as a consumer. Their bundles are smoking deals, but their "sale" prices are quite ofte...

Re: Hope for the Caly 3.5?

The G10 Caly 3.5 has been on my list for a while, so has the CF ZDP-189 version. I remember reading about the lack of washers or bearings in the Moki knives. That's interesting and I want to try one. The overall design looks practical, ergonomic, and has the classic Spyderco design elements I love. ...

Re: Stoppers

Somewhere around 8 years ago, I stopped after recieving a Manix 2 sabre ground(when Spyderco first switched from 154cm to s30v), and a green Delica 4. Collecting resumed in December of last year and ended 2 months ago(I believe) with the Police 4 G10. Well... technically that's not true... because I...

I just want to say thanks for posting all of this. I always take particular note of things you post and what you have to say. And you prodded me into buying one of these.

Re: Sal, how about a Chaparral with 2.5mm blade thickness?

What about a Boye dent? As with most things in life, YMMV, but I've found that the two edges of a flat lockbar hurt my thumb joint far less than the four sharp corners on a Boye dent. My experiences with the Boye dent have been more pleasant. Every knife I've held, that had a Boye dent, felt smooth...

Re: There's something missing here...

There have been framework Military models. This is true, but a regular production framelock, that's not just an upgrade of another model, is what I'm looking for. True that zt and Kershaw are owned by a Japanese company, but think of the number of people employed here in the US by them. It's the sa...

Re: Going against the grain

When their eyes glaze over and pupils dilate, you know they're thinking "serial killer?" or "militant survivalist?" Lol. I guess my (sorta) against the grain is a lack of concern for edge retention. And trust me, I understand how holding an edge might be very important in various situations, I just...

Hah I know right, I usually don't even tell people if they ask "what are your hobbies?" Because the looks one gets when one says "I collect knives..." Yikes. Haha, yep!! I get that at work sometimes.

There's something missing here...

Spyderco offers an enormous variety of knives in different steels, colors, sizes, lock types, and handle materials, which has us all spoiled. But... there's something missing... Taiwan has a few framelocks and linerlocks, but Golden is seriously lacking. A Golden-made titanium framelock would be fan...
