Re: Shaman sprints in stainless?

I’m definitely with you on the stainless Shaman. Tool steels sell like crazy apparently, but they are not for me...I like mine stainless. A green micarta Shaman with M390 would be perfect...or blue denim micarta.

Re: Which Spyderco should I buy?

Yeah, I would have to agree on going with the Manix 2 G10. It is just a great knife all the way around. Hard call between that and the PM2, but the Manix gets the edge..

Re: DLT re-release: Spyderco Manix 2 Red G-10 - 20CV Blade - C101GPRD2

Mine came in today...perfect knife, centered, extremely sharp and love the garnet color #gogamecocks. My brown M390 is an awesome knife functionality, just never loved the army brown color...much prefer a Marine green in a subdued color, or garnet if it’s going to stand out, and this one is perfect ...

Re: Purchase limits on Sprints/Exlusives

There's no way of preventing knives from being flipped. Even if we HAD to be collector's club members, and we could ONLY get the knives directly from Spyderco and ONLY that one knife with our number on it, there's no law that says you can't turn around and sell your knife. It would take Spyderco ha...

Glad to hear you guys like them! This knife is my personal favorite exclusive we have ever done.
It is great, can’t wait on this one. Really glad you all brought it back and that you brought in enough to last for a few hours. Thanks for the good service.

Re: DLT re-release: Spyderco Manix 2 Red G-10 - 20CV Blade - C101GPRD2

I got one...and this is one of the best deals Spyderco has. $10 more than the Red Para 3 LW, and feels like it should be twice as much. I have basically the same knife in Brown with M390, but couldn’t pass on the garnet scales, so the Brown is getting replaced and going up for sale, despite it being...

I hope this is a bigger run...really wish they would limit it to one per person so more legitimate buyers would get one.

Re: I want a Sage 5 in a premium steel!!!

I’d really like one in M390/S20V or better yet LC200N...I’d like it with Garnet (sold as red) FRN Scales. I like the Sage so much better than my Para 3LW, that getting one in Garnet would let me get rid of the Para 3...can’t do it now because I carry it when the Gamecocks play for good luck. It’s a ...

Re: s45vn pm2 sprint alert thread

I’m just going to wait until either S45V or SPY27 ends up as the next standard steel. I don’t get the point of sprinting steels that were clearly intended to be mass-market. I just want the handle and for this thread to be only emailing me when it's in stock lol I agree the patterned green G10 is a...

Re: How Spyderco changed your approach to knives

I carried older slipjoints all the time until I bought a PM2 when I found a knife shop in Richmond. That kind of ruined the slipjoints for me. I still have them, but almost never carry them..maybe sometimes in a suit I’ll carry a very slim slipjoint. The PM2 purchase also prompted me to try a few ot...

Re: Chaparral in Canvas Micarta?

I think canvas Micarta would be really cool...in a good color. I just got my FRN Chaparral after waiting a few months, and it is a great knife...a really nice carry. I would buy another in something good like canvas in blue or green.

Re: One of the best bargains of the 21 century?

Yeah, I agree the Manix 2 is the best deal. I paid $135 for a G10 version with M390 and a month or so later bought a Para 3 LW in the same steel for $5 less...after what I paid for the Manix, felt like I got robbed paying that much for so much less knife. Whenever I’m working around the house...I gr...

Re: The best pocket knife ever

I can't carry anything over 2.5 inches, so I got the Urban in AEB-L before moving to the Boston area. I'm bummed that I can't carry my beloved Sage 2 or the P4 LW. That said, I haven't felt the need to buy another small knife. I always wonder about these knife laws...how often do people actually en...

A neutered knife is the best knife? No way. Today I won't even consider buying pocket knives without a lock because they'd never end up in my pocket.

The best knife is something gets used.
That’s true.

Re: Opinions Wanted: Top 5 Best Spydercos

Manix 2....best lock, action, and feel in the hand, with a very good blade shape. PM2. Awesome all around, carries smaller and lighter than it looks and great lock execution. Sage 5 LW. The best smaller folder. Para 3 LW. It ends up in the pocket a lot due to the low weight and great clip position. ...

Re: Military with Compression Lock?

Compression > Liner Even on the Military, a Comp will make it better(for most). The only argument for a Linerlock is better usability with gloves on, which is completely false. I can easily operate both of them with heavy snow gloves on. Maybe if you had to wear giant snow mitts, but even then, I w...
