Re: Swayback

I also found the Swayback difficult to open at first. After an hour or two of experimenting, I figured out that I had to approach the Spydiehole at a different vector compared with my other Spyderco folders. Having accustomed myself to this, I can now open it easily.

Re: What other cutting tools would you like to see spyderco make?

I'd like Spyderco to make a tool that cuts the amount of money I spend on knives :)

Seriously though, aside from a knife, the tool I use most are pruning shears, so some ergonomic and durable Spyderco pruning shears would be cool.

Re: On knife design and the virtue of usability

I would keep up with the Umnumzaan. The opening will become more intuitive as you use it and opening and closing will be second-nature soon enough. Though I agree that Spyderco is faster and initially more intuitive to use straight out of the box Yes, I am keeping the Umnumzaan in rotation. I just ...

Re: My First PM2

Those scales look amazing. Perhaps you could chronicle how the patina changes over the months as you use the knife.

Re: On knife design and the virtue of usability

I recently bought a high-end production knife from another brand, and it reminded me of this topic because I indeed found it awkward to use for the first few days. I had to watch some videos of folks deploying it, and I found out that said knife used to come with an instruction sheet for how to open...

VashHash, what do you use to sharpen that wavy beast?

I'm carrying the Domino for today.

Re: Who Wants a High Carbon Native?

I have the Maxamet, 4V and Rex45 Native 5 variants, so I don't really need to add any more.

Re: 2020 Seconds Sale - BREAKING NEWS

I hope the Spyderco website doesn't crash on that day, given how crazy some drops for dealer exclusives and sprints have been.

Living overseas, it would be interesting to participate in such an event. I appreciate the efforts of the Spyderco crew in putting all of this together.

Re: This is devotion...

The craziest thing I've done connected to the knife life is to put together a multi-layer fixed blade storage rack that conveniently fits into the bottom shelf of my cabinet.

Those are gorgeous scales. It gave me a wild scifi daydream that maybe in the future we would see SAK scales that functioned as a touch screen information display, much like the present smart watches.

It's the Buck knives, folding selkirk model. The XL variant
Ah, that's why it seemed oddly familiar. I had seen the Selkirk fixed blade before, but never knew Buck came out with a folder version. Thanks for the info!

Re: DLT Cruwear purple Para3

I prefer my non-stainless steels on easy to clean fixed blades, so I passed on both the Cru-wear Delica and Para 3 drops and got a nice non-Spyderco Cru-wear fixie from DLT.

One can always choose the less stressful path, especially if all one is after is a decent cutting tool.

Yes, I agree that CRKs become easier to open after some time. Its just that this is my second Chris Reeve folder, and I am somewhat peeved that every time I get a CRK, I have to endure a sore thumb for a few days while I get used to its peculiar mode of deployment. Lol, pain in the ole keester eh? ...
