Re: LeafJumper

Hi Aicolainen, We have a pretty broad spread of size from the Bug on up to very large folders. Many models in many variations is a way to serve a larger number of small markets, but closer to their desires/needs. As far as small Salts, almost anything is possible. We watch suggestions and thoughts ...

Re: LeafJumper

I understand there are a fair share of XL paws around here, and it's great news that Spyderco is willing to serve that part of their audience. With that said, I very humbly hope that Spyderco don't forget about us small paws. My world view might be skewed by my bias, but as far as I can tell, there...

Re: Native 5 Salt

Well, from a business perspective, I could see a perfectly good reason to make more colors available. There is another thread running on the topic of salt knives maybe being too specifically marketed toward salt water applications, and while that’s not a problem for me, I can understand why the colo...

Re: Native 5 Salt

Not that it matters what I like, if it's different from your preference, but personally I like hearing other peoples reasoning, especially when their opinions are different from mine. I actually like the yellow color of the salt knives. And I like the even brighter yellow of the Seki models more tha...

Re: The upcoming Salt 2 ffg: Spydercos (Mini-) Bugout alternative and more? Perfect ultralight hiking knife?

Although my knife collection don’t have any obvious holes at the moment, I’ll probably try the new lc salt 2 out of curiosity. The OG h1 salt 2s is one of my favorites, so anything improving on that design should be worth having. I’ll also have to make up my mind if I want to try it in another blade...

Re: The upcoming Salt 2 ffg: Spydercos (Mini-) Bugout alternative and more? Perfect ultralight hiking knife?

I guess the salts provide spyderco with some kind of marketing dilemma. They make sense in so many ways, but it’s hard to get that through in marketing, so they have to focus their efforts where it could make the biggest impact on the non-enthusiast crowd. The enthusiasts will figure it out no matte...

Re: The spydie folder you would bring in a trip around the world

An around the world trip for me would be adventure focused, so I’ll probably be a little round handed with the laws, and rather be discreet and keep a low profile while passing through urban areas and rather bring something suitable. Hard decision for sure, but focusing on versatility and weight, I’...

Re: Fish Hunter

I might have some data on that soon enough. Accidentally ordered the wrong CBN rods and got cat-eyed shaped rods :( Not a big deal for what I’m planning to use CBN for, so decided to keep them rather than go through a tedious return process. Of course, being a noob on triangle rods also, the data I...

Re: Tip-down (heresy? maybe not...)

For me it comes down to the application. I carry most of my knives tip up, and most are even tip up only. But.. If I carry a knife for sports, workouts or any other reason I might carry a knife IWB, I always carry a backlock salt tip down for the perceived additional safety. Also when doing carpentr...

Re: Spyderco Pairs: Reviews and Reflections

I made a conscious effort to pair different combinations of Spydies when someone issued the challenge some years ago. Didn’t work for me. I kept forgetting about the “other” Spydie when I went for the one in my RFP. My conditioning has become so pronounced that the RFP is where my hand usually goes...

Re: Spyderco Pairs: Reviews and Reflections

Rarely carry two, except for some outdoor activities. Usually a bigger fixed blade and a small-ish folder, but in some situations I switch it around and carry a small fixed blade and a larger folder. I don't have a lot of Spyderco fixed blades, but if I carry a Spydeco fixed blade, it's most often t...

Re: Why did you join?

Hi Sal, I joined to ask questions about a knife I had some issues with. Nothing really came from that, so I quickly disappeared again. I guess I was very focused on that particular problem, and not very curious about what else the forum had to offer. At that time. So why did I come back? I only disc...

... I would love to see Spyderco’s take on a puukko with great geometry and a steel like 52100 or Super Blue. Oh my goodness I would buy 2 immediately. There’s a reason that design is timeless, because it works.
Oh my.. that would be hard to pass up

It depends on where you live. So true. Not just for Alaska, but just about any other country. .... I've used just about every major category of steel here, from H1 to SK5, and all I've really learned is that they all work. It is however so much fun for fine people such as ourselves to discuss the o...

Re: Li'l Native Slip joint: Perfect pocket knife?

Held off on the back lock Lil Native hoping for a slippie, but I’m still not sure how much pocket time it would get vs. other models like the Urban and Chaparral (or even my lw Natives). Has the Lil Native (lock type aside) become anyone’s preferred small folder over other stalwarts in the lineup? ...
