Re: Wildland Firefighters Knife

This thread had me watch "Only the brave" a few days back, when I had some spare time to spend in front of the TV. As far as I can tell, it is a well made movie that provides a somewhat realistic insight into a very special occupation. And manage not ruin it trying to make it more "entertaining" by ...

Re: Expand Golden, CO made offerings?

I’m generally very skeptical to globalism, but it’s also very nuanced, and I have no problem with how Spyderco operate. I try very hard to be a responsible consumer, part of that is obviously to not ship items around the world unless it’s necessary, but it’s also much more than that. I don’t buy che...

Re: Which spyderco is in the mail?

K04BL. Not easy to find one in Europe. Expensive too, 57€. I want to try the K05 and struggle with the same availability issue. It was up for consideration when I ordered form KC, but I was already very close to the threshold for the next step up in MVA processing fee, and it was MSRP ($40) so it d...

Re: Which spyderco is in the mail?

Let's see..

Pacific Salt LC200N FFG SE
Dragonfly 2 HAP40/Pakkawood KC exclusive
Dragonfly 2 Salt SE

I think that concludes my knife buying for 2020 (and as if that's not crazy enough, there are some none Spyderco's in those packages as well)

Re: Pac salt green frn lc200n shipping to dealers!

Knife center has re-stocked. That could of course mean they will show up in Europe soon, but I'll rather pay a wee bit more and know when I'll get it, so I just ordered from Knife center.
There are a few other KC items I've been wanting for a while as well, so that made the decision a bit less stupid

Re: Pac salt green frn lc200n shipping to dealers!

If helps to know US customer are seeing delays as well, then know that my order has been pushed to next year. 2020 has been a difficult year for manufacturing, so none of this is a surprise to me. Yes, I'm really not complaining at all. I do want the knife, but all my "crying" over the long wait is...

Re: Wildland Firefighters Knife

A little beside the point, but why do cattle owners use barbed wire at all? Surely it's probably the least expensive solution short term, but I suspect that burning pastures aren't exactly profitable, so if I want firefighters to put out fires on my land, I kind of want to make it as safe and easy f...

Re: Pac salt green frn lc200n shipping to dealers!

Now the European stores say "December" concerning availability - that´s a perspective at least. :) I’m pretty sure Lamnia said November at one time and K&T don’t even have it listed yet, as far as I can tell, so we could be aiming at a moving target here. But a date estimate, however optimistic, ce...

Re: Thee Most Practical Spyder Of All Time? Your Choice?

First of all, this thread turned me on to the Rookie, and that's unfortunate. The blade shape does border on too murdery for my taste, but there's something about the whole package that just works for me. As has been mentioned, this is not the most practical question ever. There's so many ways to in...

Re: Pac salt green frn lc200n shipping to dealers!

So, here’s a silly question that just about nobody can answer. What would be typical restock time for a Seki knife like this? I almost ordered it when it was in stock at KC, but figured it would start showing up in Europe soon, and decided wait and to shop (more) locally. That didn’t work out exact...

Re: Wildland Firefighters Knife

I find this topic interesting, but I've been busy and had to leave it for a while. Just catched up from page one. On that same page (1) I pretty much proved I don't have much to bring to the table regarding the actual design of a WF knife. As a more general observation though, I can't help feeling t...

Not fashion, but pretty nice in their own right, the TAD Radian DC seems like a pretty decent choice for women who carries.

Re: Lc200N PM2 and Para 3

It's certainly been covered. But not enough. I'd snatch up an lc200n para 3 in g10 or frn in an instant. As for pm2, I think the caribbean sorta covers that size range, but I suppose if the para 3 got a salt (at least the g10 model) then the pm2 would likely follow. ... I’m not opposed to a Para 3 ...

Adapting my outdoor carry to the dark season. Tool AA 2.0 with a 14500 cell is a very potent and pocket friendly light.

Re: Lightest Weight Spydercos...?

As you say, the Ikuchi is probably a great choice for food prep, and what you want to use it for should be the deciding factor. Personally I share your worries regarding deployment. Also, it looks a little fragile for general outdoor use beyond food prep.
