Re: Future of the Mule Team Project

I like the idea of the Mules, but I think the idea of using the exact same grind for all them skews the results in favor of those steels best suited to the standard grind (whatever ever it is/will be). I know this is done to save costs as well as provide a standard for comparison, but you can miss o...

Re: Which Steel In you’re experience is your favorite for Spydie Edges?

I voted H1 mainly because it is the only SpyderEdge I have. But also as Vivi says, H1 in SE is a super steel. I was a confirmed anti-SE until reading his praise for it. I was skeptical of a soft steel AND of SE. Got a Salt 2 and Pacific Salt. The PE point rolls easily and so frequently have to hone ...

Re: Wow Pacific Salt is being discontinued.

I hope there is market support for both H1 SaberSE and LC200N FFG PE and SE. I really like my H1 SE and may have to get a spare just in case. I have not found anything lacking in it.

Re: Manix v Manix XL v PM2

Can’t comment on the Manix thought it tempts me. I have a PM2 (my first recent Spyderco) and a Pacific Salt (based on the Endura 3). The PM2 compression lock makes opening and closing significantly easier than the back lock. My experience anyway. BUT, it is definitely right handed only. I can flick ...

Re: Spyderco Models That Deserved To Be Offered In SE

I am really hoping the new Police FRN comes out eventually in SE, as well as the Siren. I think any model with long blades with shallow belly, no belly like a Wharncliffe, or hawkbill lend themselves to a serrated edge. Also any Salt model, like the Siren deserves to be available in SE.

Re: oH tHe TiP iS ToO FrAGilE

I really like my pointy Police Stainless. However, given the common, frequent misuse of knives for prying, why not a main line model with a blunt pry tip like some dive knives? Call it the FUDD or Daryl or something. Maybe a version of the Delica/Endura? Or call it the Archimedes!

Re: Police 4 LW

I’m hoping this will be offered soon in VG-10 FFG SE, too. I have a Police Stainless plain edge. So it would be nice to get SE in the new Police FRN. Maybe down the road a LC200N PE or H1 SE—Police Salt? Guard Salt?

Condolences on your lost knife. I just got a Pacific Salt serrated last week. Like you I have sharpened it a couple of times and am impressed. It is a sad thing to lose such a good knife.

The Endura In VG10 is FFG the slicing is indeed superior.
Ah, good point. Thanks for that reminder. I really like the slicey aspect of FFG on my PM2 and PM3 so the Endura WSE sounds like a winner.

Re: Wharncliffe Endure Serrated = Super Knife

Doeswhatever, you are one of the guys on here that convinced me to try out Spyderco’s serrated edge. I have the Salt and a Pacific Salt both in SE to try it with the H1 magic. Some strokes on both sides of a Sharpmaker has moderated the acute points and they now slice more readily. Surprised that th...

Re: What would folding pocket knives look like if Sal never started Spyderco?

That brass knife is quite s find. Looks like it was setup to reside in a shirt pocket next to a pen. Way ahead if it’s time in concept but it’s small size probably limited its popularity. All I remember from the 80s was after Spyderco came out with a hugely successful line of knives most other manuf...

Re: Sal: Can we have another run of the Caspian Salt?

Seems the blade shape and H1 are unique and ideal for a dive knife. Not sure about the big hole in the handle as to how useful that might be. Never considered weight saving a feature for a dive knife since a little weight is helpful for snorkeling and insignificant when scuba diving with lead weight...
