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: Caribbean Scales: Love, or Hate?

Sorry, but: For ME there actually IS a middle ground... :o ;) I´d be just ok with them colorwise (don´t own a Caribbean). No love, no hate A moderate viewpoint about the Caribbean’s scales?! Heresy :mad: ! More seriously, I love the scales, though they look more like a tropical fish than a bumblebe...

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

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...

Re: Anyone else hoping for a BBS exclusive Military in k390?

Yep, I hope BBS get's all the K390 exclusives. That way I'll be able to get them, guaranteed. Also guaranteed it won't be someone else's return. Can't say that for other dealer! Great point! I didn't even think of it that way...as I'm currently going through the process of getting new pivot screws ...

Re: Anyone else hoping for a BBS exclusive Military in k390?

I am hoping for a Military in K390. Not for a BBS exclusive. Are the Spyderco K390 rights somewhat tied to BBS? The Urban, Police and Mule weren't. I think they're the only ones doing sprints of it for now. I'd like to see some more models use the steel, particularly some fixed blades. Either Perri...

Re: Native 5 G10 ?

Does anyone know what the small hole next to the blade pivot hole is for? I have it on my cruwear n5 as well.

I have seen photos of some native 5 models without that hole.

Re: Bento Box Customer Service...

Is non-existent. I’ve had a lot of compression locks and just received my k390 para 3 with the worst lock stick I’ve ever seen. I hit them up for an exchange and it turns out they don’t do returns or exchanges at all (my bad for not reading their terms); instead, they just copy Spyderco’s warranty ...

No idea, I wear my watches 24/7 and some are on bracelets around 5-6oz. I rarely even notice the weight. :confused:

Re: Is it time for the PM2 to come with tip up carry from the factory?

Most people on forums and YouTube change the PM2 to tip up. I'd say it's a very large majority. So why not have it come that way from the factory? Figured I'd create a poll. I'd rather have the clip not attached at all. People can then choose how or if to attach it. I always remove the clips from m...
