Re: Heron by Chad Kelly ... collab?

Im not really a maker yet, but hearing that design process is sweet because I’ve been designing and recording ideas a lot recently. I suppose the inspiration spring is flowing good right now. Anyway, it just reminded me how many versions I can make of the same design and still find ways to improve i...

Re: Sprig Re-run

There are many different forms of Phil Wilson Spyderco’s I’d go for, including things brought up in this thread. I have to mention that a Rex121 Sprig is among the things I’ve happened to list as one of my most wanted Spydercos. Basically, I’m really interested in trying Rex121 in a folder and fixed...

Re: Native pocket clip

I don’t mind wire clips, but I like the Native’s current clip more, especially on the Native.

People have been asking for a compression lock Native for a long time I think, so if that ever happens maybe that’s the way to get your wire clip on the knife. Like the Lil’ Native situation.

Re: Obscure But Yet Extremely Cool Past Models

FRN Cricket. This completely changed the game for the Cricket, as it massively improved the knifes grip and made it faster to deploy, while still remaining quite compact. My #3 favorite Spyderco Design, and probably the most useful design for urban EDC tasks I encounter. I rate it as 'obscure' beca...

Re: Efficient drawing of clipped pocket knives

I’ll have to actually assess how I draw my pocket knives and get back to you (I never really gave it much thought).

As long as I can have the knife in my pocket and draw the knife while climbing a tree, without dropping it, it’s good to go for me.

Re: Backspacers: What are your thoughts? yea or nay: explain

The ones with the stegosaurus spikes seem counter productive. Yeah, the plates and spikes Stegosaurus had on its back were at least partially meant to keep carnivorous bipeds’ hands off of it lol There’s even a pretty gnarly fossil of an Allosaurus hip with a hole in it that paleontologists jokingl...

Re: Backspacers: What are your thoughts? yea or nay: explain

It definitely depends and I’m usually indifferent.
However, I appreciate what they do for comfort and what they can do regarding design.

Re: Obscure But Yet Extremely Cool Past Models

I do really like the Impala and Ocelot too! This may be somewhat off-topic, I’m realizing, however, I’m determined to mention that a little bit ago I briefly suggested Spyderco make an XL stretch, but a drop point Salt Series version, and call it the “Riparovenator”. The name is Latin and intended t...

Re: Spyderco Military 2 steel?

I would pay a slightly higher price for Spy27 over S30V. It’s almost like there are evident differences between the steels and people have the ability to make an educated decision in order pick the right steel for them. Thanks to a lot of hard work from people like Sal, Larrin Thomas, Triple B Handm...

Re: SAGE Series

There is going to be some variation with large productions like this. Apparently, others have examples of Sages with thinner edges (like 0.015ish) and I’d bet some Natives have thinner or thicker edges too. Spyderco might also intentionally adjust things like edge thickness slightly for a variety of...

Re: Could you sharpen a convex edge using the Sharpmaker ?

Hey Marius, what would your idea of a good Spydie fixed edc be? I have an ESEE Izula that I edc, which I am fond of. I remember a thread where someone asked if Spyderco might make something to compete with the Izula, and it seemed like the general consensus was that the Street Beat already fills th...

Re: Caly Series. What's Next?

I think the design of Caly 3 (and siblings like the UKPK) is superb. The ergos just works, as does the deep carry wire clip, blade shape and angle. In my view it is better than the Delica and the Native 5. I'm totally content with the 3 inch size, and not realy interested in the larger versions to ...

Re: Clip Point Conversation

I prefer spear point. Primarily because I find myself using a knife edge in (or cutting edge UP). The unsharpened curve of the spear point keeps it from snagging or cutting the item underneath. My specific use cases where I find this use is field dressing deer (cutting the hide and don't want to po...

Re: Would spyderco be willing to make a Para 3 variant for other markets?

Have you ever considered a long bladed Roadie much in the same vein as a melon knife or a sampler? If I’m not mistaken, I recall that it has been considered and it seemed be in-the-works to some extent. I really want a bigger Roadie, personally. I’m another who thinks the double dent is very neat. ...

Re: Any planned new Ball Bearing Lock knives?

I'm going to guess/assume that the CBBL must be either problematic to make right or is more expensive than something else like a Compression Lock, The cage is a non-trivial injection molded part. You gotta invest in the molds etc. And as they learned after shipping a few years worth of Manix 2’s, y...

Re: Clip Point Conversation

No, Clip Points are also some of my favorite blades and especially with something like the Province or Respect bowies.
I think the Province must be brought back in some form.

Re: there will be tenacious with blade so tanto?

That’s an interesting idea as I do think it would be neat if there were a Spyderco Tanto that could be more easily had, especially for a lower price!
I’d be slightly more interested in a dedicated Tanto model with a back lock, but thats not me saying I don’t like your idea.
