Re: Which spyderco is in the mail?

Waiting on 2 knives: Native 5 Lightweight: This is my 3rd time re-buying it... it's my favourite folding work knife design & I keep gifting mine to family members & turning them into Native fans. Introvert: I've always been intrigued by the design but wasn't sure if the ergos would work for me. I fi...

Re: Knife myths you should not accept as true a priori (meant to be a POSITIVE thread!)

Knives without locks are no good ... Wouldn't ever consider owning one of them!!! Nope, not true ... the UK PenKnife is a wonderful user!!! QFT. I use locking folders at work, but for light-duty "convenience cutting" tasks around the house, it's hard to beat a UKPK for ease of use & carry. The UKPK...

Re: The next Endela?

An Endela with Zomé Green FRN scales would be an automatic buy for me. I have a Dragonfly & Delica in zomé scales & plan on getting a zomé Endura at some point. I like the zomé scales on the Seki City knives because they impart a distinct cultural & geographical character to the designs (as the zomé...

Re: Curious...

I think it's a good idea, but I'm not sure if a forum is the ideal format for a dedicated reviews subsection. Ideally, you want a format that has the review post distinct from comments on the review--if you've ever tried to search for one specific post in a long-running thread, you know how that pos...

Re: Native Designer

I thought I heard that Eric was the person behind the lock improvements of the Native 5. I'm not sure if that qualifies it as an EG/SAL design like the Para 2. I definitely remember reading a post by Sal from a couple of years ago where he credited Eric (& one or two other people whose names escape...

Re: Long-time lurker, first time poster...

Your daily use of knives are exact to mine. I work in a warehouse as well. Hard to beat these knives. Working in a fast-paced, high-throughput warehouse can be very taxing some days (part of the human cost of living in a society where gross, unthinking consumption is king). And it may sound silly t...

Long-time lurker, first time poster...

Hey all, long-time lurker, first-time poster here. Finally decided to register & post on the forum, primarily to publicly share my appreciation for the work of the Glessers and everyone at Spyderco. I use knives every day in my job (I work in a warehouse and cut a lot of cardboard, pallet straps, pa...
