Re: What did you use your Spyderco for last?

I used the Canis to practice making feathersticks.

Re: Canis in black DLC --any interest?

Thank you for the link. Now I'm more curious to know what is involved in making a decision to produce an all-black variant of a particular model.

I have the black G10 Southard, and I like it a lot, but some of the reviews that I went through gave me the impression that it wasn't a popular knife.

Re: Canis in black DLC --any interest?

The blue/black & red/black weave Dominos were distributor exclusives. The Blue G10 (already mentioned) was a dealer (BBS) exclusive. The only other dealer exclusives that come to mind are the recent Smock (already mentioned) and the KC orange G10/S35VN Positron. The all-black Southard was a regular...

Re: Canis in black DLC --any interest?

The BBS Domino was actually in CTS-204P, but yes, it was a dealer exclusive.

Re: Canis in black DLC --any interest?

What sprints/exclusives have come from Taichung? All I can think of is the PPT. I don't know if the all-black Southard and the Domino variants with red and blue CF are sprints or exclusives, but these are also from Taichung. Also, I would much rather it be a regular production model like the DLC Yo...

Re: Canis in black DLC --any interest?

Yes, Spyderco's S90V is pretty awesome. But please make it a regular production run, so that folks have a reasonable chance of getting one.

Re: Plastic Knives are BEST.

I don't have any strong feelings either for or against plastic knife handles. My takeaway from this post is that Sal owns a McLaren Elva :D

Canis in black DLC --any interest?

Before the Yojimbo 2 in black DLC came out, I had to put together my own in 2017 by swapping the blade on an S90V Yo2 with the scales of an S30V model. I'm hoping it doesn't take Spyderco that long to give the Canis the all-black treatment. Photo was taken against the light to give an idea of how it...

Re: Who is into fixed blades?

Here are a couple of choppers that I use. There's a BK9 near the middle for size reference. Some of these are production pieces; others are from local smiths.

I also have two Mules, but I'm trying to convince myself that I need a Spyderco Province :)

Re: How well is the Enuff family doing?

I like the Guardian 3 as well. I'd have to say that I like small fixed blades in general. These are some of the ones that I rotate. Perhaps the advantage of the Enuff in this crowd is its affordability, although even that is under threat, as some makers are offering competitive models at this price ...

Re: How well is the Enuff family doing?

A number of makers, like Bradford Knives, Bark River and LT Wright, produce small fixed blades in 3V, V4E and Cruwear. I feel like a 4V Enuff would be a good contender from Spyderco. The Enuff is longer than the Izula, but is around the length of an Izula 2. The Mule is noticeably longer than the En...

Re: How well is the Enuff family doing?

I have a leaf shaped Enuff in my carry rotation. The size is okay for my needs. I wouldn't mind having one in 4V though, as I prefer to have the tough tool steels in fixed blades rather than folders.

I bought one in December last year and it was in CTS-BD1N.
Did you buy it from SFO or from a retailer? I'm just wondering if the stock out there in 'the wild' has updated to BD1N.
I got mine from a retailer.

Re: 2021 Spyderco Forum Calendar Contest!

The Spyderco Domino (C172CFRDTIP) is one of my frequent helpers when I work in our yard. The Domino, like my other Spyderco knives, helps me to keep the yard in tiptop condition. It is a good design that I can open and close one-handed, and use even when wearing work gloves. I chose the Domino for t...
