Re: I Tested the Edge Retention of 48 Steels

Thank you for this amazing work! I hope that we will get some more data points on the toughness chart, especially m390 and s90v. some observations (s30v vs s90v): S30V has been tested for edge retention in the 60-65HRC range where it did arguably really well. I don't think this hardness represents w...

Re: Golden made no choil knife

I think that's a great idea.

I'd take the Caribbean design, remove the lanyard hole for space and put a hunting/drop point shaped blade in it, something similar to the Nirvana.
Doesn't matter which steel or lock but I'd fancy K390

Would be a dream knife...

Re: SHOT Show 2020 Videos and other info concerning new models

Excited about the upcoming Siren release. I believe to have heard that the black/blue handle color combo will be the first among others to come. Might as well show some extra patience. Yellow, Orange/Black would be even nicer color combos. A SE version would be interesting as well. Hope it sells wel...

Re: My struggle with the Native

The only things I liked about mine was the well made lock and good looking design. The normal grip was cramped, using the choil for a full grip was uncomfortable and locked my wrist in a certain position. Cutting bigger objects was uncomfortable because I had to be careful not to catch with the choi...

Re: Sun/Moon Chappy

I wonder how hard this variation will be to obtain? I'm contemplating pre-ordering one after pondering it all weekend. You fear it WILL be hard to option actually, despite being regular production? :eek: It´s one of my most anticipated knives in a long time, and should you be right I´d think of ord...

Re: Sun/Moon Chappy

I'm looking forward to this Chaparral. Put in my pre-order yesterday. May I ask: Where can one preorder it already? (Though I really hope it will hit European dealers eventually too... much easier for me) There may be other dealers taking pre-orders as well, but mine is with KnifeCenter. Have no id...

Re: Spyderco: What makes the brand so good?

Unlike many, they make knives that are intended to cut and the spydiehole is smart and fun to use.

Re: Any info on why the GB 2 is unobtanium right now?

I just couldn’t see how a GB3 could be made to keep both GB1 and GB2 people happy. Just a few too many changes between the two 5DD0B716-B1A0-4533-BA15-ECD6F311E4C7.jpeg Picture borrowed from https://knifeinformer.com/spyderco-gayle-bradley-review/ tks for the comparison!

Re: Still wishing for a Chaparral XL / Endela "thin edition" / or something along that lines

So for me at least just one a bit larger, 2mm "mainstream" ffg model is missing in Spydercos lineup. What do you think? 2mm ffg is plenty imo. I would not choose the chaparral platform since it looses edge because of the choil. An all edge model like the caribbean with ~100mm edge length would be g...

Re: POLL: Who´d like to see a knife along the lines of the Caribbean, but with a BACKLOCK?

My 2c. I had the chance to play with a caribbean and was positively surprised about fit and finish and design.

What I would change:

make the blade longer by 10mm
straight spine for aesthetic reasons
remove finger guards
titanium scales with the same pattern as G10

Re: Your "return ethics"?

Like I said in another thread. Why not add protective stickers to pivots & blade that void returns after removal? This way you can return the knife if you don't like it and it won't be "used" for the new buyer who gets a return. Watch companies, hardware companies and surely others handle it this w...
