Re: Regarding the titanium/damascus Endura 4

To me, the titanium versions of the Delica and Endura are absolutely the best variants, whatever blade may be sitting in their frames. They are incredibly slim and light yet incredibly sturdy feeling, and of course have no nested SS liners. They are not nearly as “grippy” compared to the FRN or G10...

Regarding the titanium/damascus Endura 4

Despite my Military/Police 4/Manix 2 XL sized hands, the Endura 4 has quickly become my favorite Spyderco platform. It's the perfect balance between capability and pocketability as far as I'm concerned. I'm considering stepping up to the most ballin' E4 out there; the titanium-scaled and damascus-cl...

pacific salt se. of all my knives, it gets pushed the hardest and it's very trustworthy.
Beat me to it. I'm constantly impressed by how much abuse my Pac Salt SE can take. I recently punched through and sawed a closet door in half with it.

Re: My ideal Spyderco

Endura 4 with linerless OD green G10 scales, Cru-wear steel, and a deep-carry pocket clip would be my ideal Spydie..

Blacked-out Endura 4 CE for me and Dragonfly Salt Hawkbill SE for my wife. Simple, understated, and well-made tools.

Re: Long-term pakkawood scale use?

Pakkawood is supposed to be very stable stuff. I haven't noticed any changes on my delica or dragonfly, and I live in a very humid area. It looks and feels as nice as it did on day one, imo. Excellent. Thanks for the quick reply! Do you perform any regular proactive maintenance? Mineral oil, etc? I...

Long-term pakkawood scale use?

I keep flip-flopping about buying a pakkawood Endura. On paper it's perfection! Classy mahogany scales, funky laminated steel I'm excited to try, and the E4 platform which as we all know is awesome. I'm wondering how pakkawood changes over time and repeated use. I don't baby my knives, but I don't a...

...I haven't heard any actual confirmation I have a gut feeling we'll see a larger version of the Rock Jumper eventually too.
Quit playing games with my heart! ;)

But yeah, an XL Rock Jumper might be the most perfect FRN Spydie I can think of..

Re: Need help for gift

I’ve been carrying a serrated Pacific Salt for more than two years now, so I might be biased but this thing is awesome! It’s the size of the Endura but it weighs 3 ounces flat. It’s blacked out so it maintains a low profile, and it’s H1 steel so corrosion isn’t an issue. The teeth absolutely fly thr...

Who is actually going to carry their Bombshell?

I was lucky enough to score a Bombshell when they landed at my retailer here in Canada. I’ve always told myself I wouldn’t buy a knife I’m not planning to carry, and it feels extremely good in-hand (despite my massive mitts), but I can’t decide if it’s actually going to be a user or not. I feel like...
