Re: Asking for help, for a second time!

I didnt read the other replies, ill just give my own thoughts. S30V will be a better steel for MOST people. Its far easier to work with than S110V. S110V is significantly harder, which makes sharpening quite a bit more challenging, and you really should look at diamond abrasives for that reason. It ...

Re: G10 Delica/Endura in Super Gold

I am really interested in the super gold, but honestly i love the enduras i have enough to want a g-10 version in almost anything Spyderco would care to use as a blade steel. And now that i understand the complexities of pricing on G10 from Seki i wont care about the cost! (Big thanks again for the ...

Re: First time spyderco owner--love it!

Hello every one, I just joined the forum tonight and this is my first post of many I'm sure. I have been soaking up the knowledge on this forum for the last week or two and have since that time purchased my first ever knife over the $50 dollar Mark--a PM2 black s30v!! My co-workers all carry variou...

Just don't sharpen it over your food and you should be safe. I know everyone likes a little extra cheese at olive garden but don't grate the steel over your meals.
Lol!

Re: Caribbean love.

My PE Caribbean leaf is my favorite Spyderco knife, period. It's the most comfortable in use, as well. It's my only LC200N knife so far, and it's become perhaps my favorite steel for its various qualities. I like it way better than H1. I will admit, it looks odd and isn't the prettiest knife in the...

Re: Caribbean love.

I am with you on the lock. I think the comp. lock is an ingenious design and has it´s place, but I personally prefer a backlock. Concerning the "hook": I am just courious: I get, that you don´t like it, if it interferes with your large hands (so does not give you enough room / cramps your hand). Bu...

Re: Caribbean love.

I would be okay with it if there were enough room. It is not as smooth a design with it, but I could live with it. The Military has it right. It keeps your hand from slipping backwards, but it is rounded off enough that a little finger can ride on top if need be. Of course, the Military handle is s...

Re: Caribbean love.

I've been wanting a serrated leaf version for a long time. They were truly impressive when I handled one at SMK. did you buy a plain edge? Or going to wait for a spyderedge? I have seen posts describing how poorly some steels seem to respond to serrations. I wonder if anyone has serrated LC200N and...

Re: Caribbean love.

I did not buy a Caribbean for one major reason: the lock. If it were a backlock like the other Salt models I would be sorely tempted. As it is, I really get turned off my detent dependent locks. I am with ladybug93. With my large hands, I prefer no hook on the pommel. I like the way the Military is...

Re: Caribbean love.

the manix 2 still has a little bit of a hook and my hand locks in on the handle perfectly. however, it’s only enough to lock in the grip and the handle still narrows toward the end. it’s so much better in the pocket than even smaller knives like the native that don’t do this. the caribbean looks ev...

Re: Caribbean love.

(For the record: Don´t own/never handled a Caribbean, just looked at it on pics and in vids) - On the "hook": I think that actually is a very good feature on a handle, the more so, the bigger/heavier the knife itself is (but also on light knives). The "hook" is why I prefer the Stretch 1 over the S...

Re: Caribbean love.

take this with a grain of salt (hehe) since i don’t own one, but more than the looks, the handle shape is what keeps me from trying one. i personally hate a really wide end on the handle, especially with a prominent hook like the caribbean has. the native has one that is similar, but smaller, and i...

Re: Caribbean love.

BigKenbo Thank you. Nothing youd improve? Im not scared of the color on the scales. Vivi is impressed with the lc200n, do you like it also? [/quote] I haven't used it daily like S30V, 52100, S35VN, and S90V to give you any solid feedback on the steel. I wouldn't change anything on the knife though....

Re: Caribbean love.

I wouldn’t change a thing on my PE leaf, not a thing. The sharpening response on LC200N is wondrous, and edge-holding is pretty **** good. Ergos are perfect for my hand. But a word of warning. If you are accustomed to choils, don’t absent-mindedly fondle your Caribbean... Word!!! I will remember!

Re: Caribbean love.

You could say I'm a fan. https://forum.spyderco.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=83276 The only significant changes I'd make are maybe change the scale pattern somehow to do away with the black spot in the middle, bring out some other color options (even if just solid black and/or black and DLC), give it th...
