Mostly depends on the color combo for me, and if the zome "painting" looks well done and interesting.

Re: What is it that sets a good knife apart from a great one?

In my opinion, what sets a good knife apart from a great one, is the feeling that it evokes. Not craftsmanship or materials but how does it relate to the end user. One person may consider their inexpensive traditional knife great because it has served it’s purpose and been reliable for that person, ...

Re: DLT Trading Red/Black Zome Delica in 20CV

Good steel, not crazy about the handle. Solid red would’ve been better. $15 more than the KW green/204P also. Pass.

Re: Native 5 Stock Replenishments?

Fluted CF is out there but you may have to look a little. G10 sprints and exclusives don’t usually stay in stock for long. Regular production G10s (S30V & S110V) are not hard to find.

Re: Expand Golden, CO made offerings?

Golden is already backlogged. Recently a retailer stated that it took 2 years from time of contract to delivery of an exclusive, which is anywhere from 600-1200 pcs. The Seki partnership is largely responsible for the company Spyderco has become, and produce what I consider the bread and butter of t...

Re: Which models bring out the best of each steel?

The model you like the most :D

I look at it on a toughness scale. The longer/larger the blade, the tougher the steel should be. High edge retention/lower toughness on small folder, higher toughness on fixed blades

Super blue has a gray handle. I'm not sure the teal counts as blue.
Yeah it was gray, I thought it was a light blue there for a minute. My bad.

Re: Who Wants a High Carbon Native?

If you really want a high performing non stainless 52100 is a good performer and a very well known knife steel with not too many surprises. I'd probably buy one even though in a Native I'd prefer 4V or similar. Without the coatings and Red color especially. I'll go with the flow on this one though....

Re: Direction and Magnitude!

Never owned one, but my father in law carries one. He loves it! Bought it at cost from Peter Carey himself, who is a patient of his. That's pretty cool getting it from the designer! I know! I didn’t believe him at first, so I googled Carey, and sure enough he lives about 10 miles away. Then I actua...

Heck yeah bring it back. Same scales and steel are fine with me, just strengthen the detent. I don’t even care about a pocket clip option.

Re: Who Wants a High Carbon Native?

I’ll take one of each in 52100 and SB. Keep the peel ply CF (CQI linerless) and sandwich the 52100 between some 410 stainless for something extra special.
