Re: Current Byrd Back Lock Quality?

The Byrds I've gotten within the past couple of years have precision locks. (Back Locks) Absolutely no play in any direction even when leaning on them with quite a bit of force. Drop shotty, too. Whichever Chinese manufacturer it is gets a huge thumbs up from me. Wish I could say the same for the so...

Re: Use of word "patina" by knife enthusiasts

Patina is the popular word to use when you don't want to admit you don't take care of your stuff and let it rust. :p

Re: LC200N hunting knife?

Respect to those who prefer more edge retention, but I love the SpydieChef because of the total package. For field dressing and skinning, the LC200N has enough edge retention to get you through a couple or three critters and is incredibly stupid crazy easy to sharpen or touch up. For breaking down t...

Re: LC200N hunting knife?

Depends upon what you hunt. For skinning big game, for a pocket folder, IMHO the SpydieChef is the defacto standard of excellence.

Re: We finally got the UKPK Salt. Thank you Sal

Sure would be nice if they followed up with a drop point version. I will be getting the leafs, but would certainly buy additional in drop point. US "Golden" made LC200N is getting to be a thing with me.

Mucho Mucho Thanks

I would very much like to thank whoever is responsible for the translucent gray background for zoomed in images of knives in your online product guide. Such a simple thing, but the images pop as opposed to the previous shiny blade against a white background. No doubt it will be responsible for addit...

Re: Serrated H-1 vs. Serrated LC200N?

In order to compare apples to apples in a meaningful way, the grind would have to be the same. Would be interested to hear Vivi's and Surfingringo's thoughts on the matter. Eric stated that H 1's serrated edge was superior to LC200N's serrated edge retention but he didn't say to what degree. One als...

Re: Reveal 7 Live!

I was really hoping for a serrated Siren, might just send one off for veff serrations. I hear you. I was hoping, too. I respect Sal's decision out of loyalty to have his Japanese maker also make their Salt models currently made in H1 to also make them in LC200N. I assume Spyderco is sourcing LC200N...

Never handled a Slysz Bowie, but I like my SpydieChef plenty. As far as personal utility goes, I think I made the right choice.

Re: Spyderco Lock Type Preference

Kind of fond of the Bolt Action Lock. Not too many good examples out there, tho. Smooth and easier to operate than a CBBL and definitely more durable than an Axis Lock. Don't understand its lack of popularity. Never had one. Some say it is harder to use with wet or sweaty fingers than a CBBL. Actua...

I was under the impression that razor sharp cuts heal more slowly than abrasive laceration type cuts. Go figure.

Actually as a leftie I find all Slysz designs to be perfect for spydie flicking , especially the Swayback :D :https://imgur.com/gallery/1Mcg1Uj As a rightie, it appears that the lock bar one the Swayback obscures the hole significantly more than on the SpydieChef thus preventing a rightie spydie fl...

What about another go at those Wilson fillet knives that never saw production?
Of Course. :p
