Re: What knives in your collection keep wow-ing you?

Gayle Bradley 1 lately. Usually a bit to heavy, but winter time it seems fine.

Re: SpyOpera, Brouwer, ...

The Watu is what you seek. Thin stock, thin grind and thinnest distal taper I have seen.

Re: Stretch in k390

The Stretch is my favorite. I might grab a ZDP as these are going to be discontinued. K390 in the standard drop point will become a great new addition.

Re: Which LW Manix is hi toughness and stainless?

If they ever make ABE-L, that will be the toughest stainless.

Re: Running out of Airs

The GB Air is a fantastic pocket knife. I would grab at least 2-3 if they did a run.

Re: Tell us about your Spyderco Knife of the Year 2020

Watu is really well done. Great build and it’s a real laser.

Native in REX 45 is runner up.

Re: Seki lockbacks vs. Golden lockbacks

The golden back locks are fantastic. The native 5 g10 back locks are my favorite of any lock.

Re: If you can only have one Delica...

ZDP-189 or K390. Probably K390.

I have versions in Superblue and Cruwear so I’m set for now.

Re: More 52100?

A linerless G10 Native in 52100 would be sweet.

I have a Military in 52100. It has the issue with the stop pin not seated into the liner so the pivot has a gap and lots of play. I have to send it into Spyderco to be checked out. I almost bought a second one but thought I would get the same problem.

Re: DLT Cruwear purple Para3

We knew this would go fast. I wanted to try a para 3 so I picked up a P3 Maxamet. I suggest anyone missing on this look for the P3 in Maxamet. We are so lucky Spyderco makes these choices possible in the first place. There will be more.

Re: How about a new Military?

I believe AEB-L was requested some time ago. At the higher HRC the edge stability and toughness make it a very interesting steel for the Military. I think cost of the steel would kill this one.

Re: How about a new Military?

Maxamet, but it’s never going to happen. Time to give up on any new Militaries. There just isn’t enough demand.

Re: Would s110v family sale better w/o Blurple?

I’m waiting for the S110v Military to restock. I hope they keep the heat treat that pushed closer to 64 hrc.

Re: Cruwear micarta Bushcraft/Proficient

I’m giving the proficient some thought. As Sal said, this could be one and done due to the costs to manufacture. I have a south fork. Different purposes, but same great S90v.

Re: Where do you grip large knives with a choil?

The militarily does have the best choil. So easy to transition from 4 finger grip on the handle to the choil and back. I like the older stretch for the same reason. I don't like deep choils except the Native 5 as it feels likes its the primary grip for using the Native 5.

Re: The Age Old Question .... E4 or D4

I would say if you have to ask, the Endura. I prefer the Delica but if you like larger then there is your answer. The Endela is coming, I’m tempted on that one. Alas I have enough for now.
