Native M390 - choose yours

In a desperate attempt to push M390 into Golden exclusives (sprints?) that aren't right handed, I made a poll for anyone who would be interested. As Sal said on multiple occasions, he's watching the threads, and looking at potential numbers. I would prefer a Lil' Native BL in G10 version myself, but...

Re: Salt 2 LC200N... Is this Normal

I would more likely assume that the CNC programmer made a mistake, but let's see what information will come from Spyderco. That's where my money is. Programming error. Cheaper to use the parts than to throw them in the scrap bin. Maybe they'll become rare Spyderco Collectible, like an off-center st...

Re: Byrd Tern: First Impressions

A little advice for any lefties changing sides of the pocket clip on the Tern: DO NOT try to switch sides of screw and bolt on the back, nor extract the bolt part more than absolutely needed for the wire to slide in. Just had half hour of my life lost reassembling it. The spring is one piece and in ...

Re: THANKS Sal for this knife! (Salt 2 ffg SE - First impressions)

Can anyone make a video of the up-down play a.k.a. "lock rock" on the Salt2?

From my Seki folders, I don't think I have this, even on Salt 1, whose handle is pretty flexible.

Re: Salt 2 LC200N... Is this Normal

I'm also very curious if this is a type of CQI and what the function of the cutout is. It's very close to the functioning area of the pivot and would have thought if it's a type of birthmark it would be further away from the pivot like on the Golden models. I would more likely assume that the CNC p...

The Rockjumper is a cool name. Leaf jumper? It sounds like a tree frog or something. How about Cliff Jumper, Mountain Climber, Mountain Jumper? None of those sound like a tree frog. :D
Make it in LC200N and call it Reef Jumper

Not in the US, would definitely be interested, not as a "destruction test" knife, but as a fixed blade for weekend getaways.

All of these threads should be requests for a new knife in an existing family rather that requests to make changes to an existing design. A new handle forward knife in the Native family? YES! Change the Native to be not-a-Native? NO!
Exactly. The knife should be called Native Max :D

Re: Handle foreward Native 5

Does anyone have magical photoshop skills? :D

Handle extends back as long as it was "stolen from the front.

Blade is as long as can fit in the handle.

I have no idea where the pivot should be.

No choil.

Cut against different materials and you can get superior edge retention from the same knife. Avoid cutting on steel backing, concrete, etc. Wood or plastic is much easier on knife edges.
MagnaCut will solve this :D

Re: New CPM Stainless Steel??

Excellent article Larrin, thank you.

I wonder what the pricing will be on the MagnaCut - 20CV like, or more Vanax like.

Hope Crucible decides for reasonable pricing, as I would like to see this steel in more models.
