Re: National Breast Cancer Awareness Month... Time To EDC Your Pink Spyderco

**** that pinky-purple Ruger is scary... not because it's a gun but because it looks like a toy gun. Hate to think how often those fall into the wrong hands. Great picture though!

Them flowers are great too!

Re: Sal, CQI the Urban LW, please

There's only one problem with the Urban K390 - its price-to-awesomeness ratio is off the chart, making me question the wisdom of most subsequent knife purchases.
I wouldn't encourage Spyderco to update it in any way... because you can be sure the price would get some CQI as well.

Re: National Breast Cancer Awareness Month... Time To EDC Your Pink Spyderco

I'm the only one in the universe itching to own a pink Tropen, but since they only managed to sell 6 of the slick black originals I know it'll never happen (I guessed the number, but they're hardly flying off the shelves, thanks to some dodgy design mistakes around the lock mechanism) So I'll have t...

Re: Kapara back in stock!!

The Kapara is hardly a "beat the hell out of it" kind of knife. Is anyone ever really going to notice a difference if its blade is S90V, S30V, LC200 etc?

Re: how are sales figures for the spyderco parata?

It's not the blade material that bothers me, it's the boring slabs of black g10. Another colour wouldn't have made the knife more expensive to produce but it would have made it more desirable. To me, at least.

Re: Where do you grip large knives with a choil?

I would go, "Cool, a Native Chief! Never seen one of these before!" and in my excitement drop it blade down, nailing one of my feet to the floor. I'd probably ignore the choil when extracting the blade from my bleeding metatarsals, assuming I haven't immediately fainted.

Re: Any interest in a Spyderco utility knife (box cutter)

If I was Spyderco, selling tons of knives in the $70 - $500 range, I wouldn't be in much of a hurry to gatecrash the $3.99 end of the knife business.

Re: pink ladybug?

One of my grail knives would be a Tropen in pink G10.
Tragically, I'm the only one who wants one so it'll never happen (sad face)

Re: Odd milestone - who took all the g10?

I've never been a big fan of black G10 but what mystifies me is G10 /Carbon fibre laminate. What is the point of this ugly combination? All it does is looks cheap. For some reason Spyderco puts it on a lot of high-end knives - and I will never buy a CF laminate knife, ever, no matter how wonderful t...

How about a pink G10 Tropen? That thing'd sell like hot cakes.

Re: Help order from Knifecenter to Europe canceled by Airline

It's not better in Germany. I had to go on a two hour there-and-back journey to pick up some incredibly dangerous knife from the customs people. After waiting half an hour I got invited into a dark office where my suspect package was placed, like evidence in a courtroom, on a desk in front of me. I ...

Re: Help order from Knifecenter to Europe canceled by Airline

I placed an order with KnifeCentre a couple of years ago and picked the FEDEX shipping option. The parcel arrived incredibly quickly in Germany. There were some handling fees etc but for convenience and speed it was unbeatable. Another time I ordered things from Cutlery Shoppe using the USPS shippin...

Re: IS IT real or Fake? Spyderco Southard

Why do you think the box looks fake? That looks to me like a normal Spyderco box, slightly dinged and dented.
As for the knife? Looks good to me! (But I don't have a Southard, so don't take my word for it.)
