Re: Machete by Spyderco?

Thanks for the reply Fireman And I don't mind spending the coin to get the right tool, Lord knows I have , I was just trying to understand best use case. In my mind, it was why take a Ferrari down a Jeep trail and get stuck (chipped blade, etc.) when you could just take the Jeep and make it through ...

Re: Machete by Spyderco?

The machete I have used since they first came out is a ESEE lite machete. The blades are made by Imacasa in El Salvador. They are in 1075 and they are heat treated very well. I have to reshape the handle since it was so blocky but after reprofiling the handle and edge It became the one tool I never...

Re: SpyderSaw

First off, sorry fellas that I didn't search for earlier threads as they are some good points in the one Wartstein started. . Good points, but the Spydersaw for me fills a special role when it comes to weight and convenient carry, that no other pocket saw on the market I am aware of does. I detaille...

SpyderSaw

Saw the SpyderSaw in the 2003 catalog hosted by spydercollection.com (great resource, thank you). https://secureservercdn.net/192.169.223.13/92c.27d.myftpupload.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/SpyderSaw_2003.png?time=1606793167 Before seeing the SpyderSaw I had previously posted somewhere here a sugg...

Re: Spyderco Viking Neck Knife?

For a small neck knife, would love to see a Salt version of the Simonich Bitterroot. Rob Simonich was a great knifemaker (and super nice guy) who unfortunately passed away in 2003. Made that suggestion of an H-1 Bitterroot to the Spyderco booth at Blade Show many years ago. I believe Bladeart has ex...

Re: Wharncliffe's

Another advantage (to an extent) is knowing exactly where the tip is located without looking. Some tips are center-line with the blade, some inline with the spine, and some are not at all. Obviously with a Wharnecliffe, when not looking or using in the dark, there can be an advantage to knowing wher...

Re: Boye dent poll

I like the Boye dent... ...the dented Seki knives are more comfortable to release and intuitively find the lock when not looking at the knife . Also, they seem better to operate with gloves on. For me it’s more about the indexing point and comfort of lock release, rather than being concerned about ...

Re: 12 reasons why the Delica is better than the Native

With all due respect: Why would it be a mistake to choke up on a Delica in the place where other models have a choil?!? The Delica Ricasso is perfect for that, choked up on the Ricasso is probably my most used grip even in hard use and feels more stable and gives me more control than most (not all)...

Re: 12 reasons why the Delica is better than the Native

Will also add Delica has a trainer and for that it's also good for practice with the Salt 2 should you need in H1 environment. As I choke up on blades frequently for fine work, I have found myself almost making a mistake in going for a finger choil that is not there on the Delica/Salt 2 if I had bee...

Re: Fairly comprehensive list of Spyderos in movies, tv shows, etc

For those that like spy novels, Spyderco knives are mentioned a few times in "The Gray Man" book series by Mark Greaney, including a PM 2 in matte black in the latest 9th book. Books are excellent by the way. Netflix is going in on "The Gray Man" in a big way too -- would be cool if they stay true t...

Re: Question for Sal regarding the green LC200N salts

Was super happy to see this reveal on the Spyderco app today :-) I had passed on the Caribbean as I know I wouldn't have carried it over the weight, I will carry that Pac Salt 2 to try LC200N as I already have it in H1, will be fun to compare Two questions please: 1. Will we see a Salt 2 and Ladybug...

Re: What do you want in a new Salt knife?

Why does it have to be a knife? How about a Pacific Salt 2 or Police size woodsaw. As H1 performs so well serrated, I suspect a woodsaw would be amazing. Opinel makes a dedicated woodsaw in this size. https://knifeworks.com/opinel-folding-saw-op65126-5-12c27-sandvik-saw-blade-beechwood-handle-651266...

Re: Will the ARK fit my needs?

The trout I keep are around 16 inches long. Given how I clean them and how slippery they are, prefer a short blade in the 2-3" range with a short height, less than 1", for control and maneuverability. With other fish cleaned differently, bigger, and less slippery, I might prefer a longer blade. Eve...

Re: Maybe small knives are not TOTALLY awful

Ötzi the Iceman’s flint knife had about the same amount of cutting edge as the Dragonfly.

Nope, not selling anything, and unfortunately Mors passed away this past December. One of the most generous human beings ever who just happened to be a master woodsman with knife skills second to none.

Re: What’s the Next Hype Knife to Look Out for?

Might be more hype across the pond than here, but there was a thread (sorry can't find) with interest in a UKPK Salt sprint-run.

If I could ever get back to traveling, I'd be very interested.

If we are talking wilderness survival, really probably talking more wilderness living skills here, the Aqua Salt, while a great knife and I have one , does not have a comfortable handle for extended use. Hard use or not, the Aqua Salt does NOT carve wood (notches) or shave wood as well a specificall...
