Re: Gentleman EDC / Groomsman Gift

Techno 2, blade short enough to be legal most places.

Re: Black Friday purchases coming in

Pretty annoyed with one of mine. Reasonably certain it's a demo model- bent tip, fingerprints on the blade, light almost flickable action (on an FRN backlock), price sticker on the box that doesn't align with what I paid. I'll see if the shop can make it right.

ETA: yep, looks like it's a demo.

Re: What "others" are in the mail?

Hi I'm Monty and I bought a Junglas...and I'm not sure why. I'm sure any normal bushcraft knife and an axe probably do everything (better) that I'd want to do with the Junglas. I'll add it to the Zombie preparation category of the collection along with the RMJ tomahawk.

Re: Tell us about your Spyderco Knife of the Year 2019

The Caribbean without a doubt is my favorite pickup for 2019. I've got both bladeshapes in the SE, I slightly prefer the leaf shape but I'm planning to shave down the angle on the Sheepsfoot as inspired by Evil D so that may change my preferences. The one I was anticipating to love but so far hasn't...

Re: Are you done with 2019, Spydie wise? What do you wish for in 2020?

I sharpen a number of knives for friends who are to varying degrees into knives or just knife users, they're all typically rust buckets living here on the coast. If the Siren drops in time for Christmas delivery (and before I buy other gifts) I'll be picking up half a dozen. 2020 wishes... Jester Sa...

Re: How was your 2019?

It's been a good year for buying knives but a so-so year for Spyderco buying, I like serrations and I'm not a big fan of the PM2/PM3/Delica so the most prolific sprints rarely get my interest. I bought more than a few new knives this year to try out and sold off most of them. The two new to me Spyde...

Re: DLC and rust.

Alright here is round two of the experiment. This time prior to the water and salt treatment, I heavily coated the blade in mineral oil, let sit for several minutes, then wiped off the excess. Here are the results about 10 hours later: The oil didn't seem to help a whole lot. Perhaps Bloke is right...

Re: Late to the party: what is missing in the catalog

Another thing that´s missing in the catalog: More ffg (!) serrated blades, preferably in the thinner, 3mm stock. At least the regular (so not only wharnie) Endura and Delica really should come in ffg SE like the Endela does (but also additionally furthermore in sabregrind SE and especially in sabre...

Re: SE Shaman or Caribbean?

I have both and like them both. You get more cutting edge with the Caribbean...that's a big plus for the weight. I'd say if you need corrosion resistance, get the Caribbean, if you like choils, get the Shaman. Do buy $4 of Rit dye if you get the Caribbean, it's much more pleasing without the bumbleb...

Re: Bento Box Customer Service...

I hit them up for an exchange and it turns out they don’t do returns or exchanges at all (my bad for not reading their terms ); It's four pages of whining, repetitive backslapping, and unrelated dogpiling because a guy doesn't read the terms. He says they don't have customer service, in fact he's j...

Re: Para3 LW in m390.. First LW exclusive

Seems logical that anyone putting in orders for exclusives on the LW Para3 will be much larger than we've seen for Shamans/Lil Natives. Para 3 in it's G-10 version is a known winner, it has 30 or so releases, basic version is sold in sporting goods stores to the average guy and the new lightweight v...

Re: Spyderedged Blades: A Total Mis-Understanding Maybe?

For most pocket knife uses I'll take a SE over a PE if those are my only options, it's just depressing how few combo edges are available these days. Just did a quick search on the Spydie app, only a handful of combo options left outside of the budget line. Fully serrated at least is still getting ne...
