Picture?

Gentlemen and ladies, ignore the trolls.
Sal says in the next Reveal.

But considering this is the only edge-to-handle backlock (excluding Centofante, who decided not to put the clip on both sides), I think we deserve a picture of the prototype.

Mr. Glesser?

Pretty please? :D

Re: So what's your top 3 favorite steels? and why?

If we can add steels we don't actually own, my list would go
1. Vanax Superclean
2. M390
3. LC200N

All super stainless and super wear resistant steels.

Stainless by itself would be my first requirement for pocket/work knives, but edge retention matters also, thus H1 is not in the list.

Hey Larrin, Shawn, just to let you know it would be lovely if we had some update from your tests with SPY27.

Thanks for your support.

Sooner or later there will be SPY27 and S45VN versions, I'm pretty sure. Those won't be sprints, but still more options. I don't own a Lil'N yet, so I'd love to see sprints - maybe in M390?
Smurf blue G10 and M390 lockback. Just puts a smile on my face :)

Re: Compendium of tips for sharpening serrated knives

Well yeah if you use the flat sides of the Sharpmaker rods, that's why you use the corners. They get into each serration individually and sharpen the entire edge. Interesting. If you do sharpen like that, you can get into all parts of the blade. My fault watching one to many videos where they show ...

Re: Compendium of tips for sharpening serrated knives

"Properly" is debatable. I'll stick with my Sharpmaker. Then you don't have to worry about the blade pattern matching the wheel pattern. Ok, fair enough. But take a look at the grinding wheel. Correct me if I'm wrong, but any flat sharpener only sharpens, or regrinds if we could call it that, the b...

Re: Compendium of tips for sharpening serrated knives

I finally found the answer I was looking for:

So basically if I want to sharpen my serrated blade properly, I have to buy one wheel like this, but for specific model of knife I have, as serrations differ.

Re: CBN vs Daimond SM rods?

I have several sharpening devices but I only use the Sharpmaker now since I bought it. Perhaps it’s most important characteristic is ease of use. I don’t have the ability to freehand on a stone and get good results in a short time. With the Sharpmaker I can. I have the Diamond stones and medium, fi...

Re: Let’s see your 2 inch/5.08 cm Spydercos

If I may ask, as I know it's not related to your subject, but how do you carry these knives? I know when I put a Vic or any other in my pants, it falls down the pocket and I get from comfortable to extra annonyed in 10 seconds, as it always somehow finds the least comfortable position. Plus you get ...

My theory on why the Lil Native Backlock is not more popular than the comp lock is the clip....
I'll second on that. Perhaps I would have taken it by now if had the clip from comp lock version.

Re: CBN vs Daimond SM rods?

Guys, if I buy the standard Sharpmaker set, do I need additional rods to take to get the knife to sharp? I mean those CBN/diamonds and ultra fine. Also, is the honing board with compounds needed additional to previous? I need to get a good sharpener, as I have 30+ folders in different steels and onl...

Re: New Stones, Much Joy

Although this isn't a Spyderco product, I found it to be complementary to my Spyderco enjoyment. I don't mean this to be a discussion of which style of sharpening is best, just what worked for me, with my existing gear, for this particular challenge. The unique aspect of Spyderco is that they offer...

Hope it's a modified wharncliffe, Kapara-alike.

I have high expectations, finally a full blade usable folder with backlock.

Re: What would you like to see next from Byrd?

Wow, nice to see you have something like that in your plans. Hope it will be in the EDC range 3 +/- 1/2", cause that would be an instant buy for me, and I believe quite a few guys from both here and bladeforums, from the reactions I've seen.
Will be waiting for this one definitely.
