Re: Spydie vs Bugout

No bugout, I have a few other Benchmades. No issues with there steel, edge retention is middle of the road. Axis lock is not my favorite, I do think axis lock is better than the spyderco ball lock on a Manix. I like how it snaps close last little bit. Ergos are not there on most Benchmades. Fit and ...

Re: Want to go to the big leagues....Manix 2 XL or Military

Amalgam if you want to step outside the box. It doesn’t spec as big as the other recommended knives but it’s not small.

Re: What Are the Pros/Cons for Rex and Maxamet?

I am a hard use knife owner... I don’t own maxamet but have a few Rex45 knives. Rex 45 is pretty nice with a paramilitary style thin grind, edge gets very sharp and holds an edge for general use. Rex 45 flat grind PM3 for cutting boxes is amazing. Rex 45 Shaman for scraping gaskets and cutting rubbe...

Re: Golden Colorado Heat Treat

Lots of scraping lately, stripping romex and kitchen duty cutting on ceramic plates. I sharpen on 300, step to 600 and then 1000. Stromp a couple times to finish/clean up. Only two of my knives are chipping, I constantly change what I carry. I have 5-6 knives I rotate through and carry at work. Goin...

Re: Golden Colorado Heat Treat

No issues with same brand, same steel, just not recent purchase. Trust me I love spyderco, but I am on the fence after I just spent an hour to get a chip out.

Re: Golden Colorado Heat Treat

Heard that but I am past believing... I would say I am 1/16 to 1/8 in Metal removal on both. Couple of months of abuse and still edge is flaking.

Golden Colorado Heat Treat

My last two users from Golden Colorado have been chipping. They have been holding an awesome edge but noticeable chips with hard use. One was rex 45 other is dealer exclusive s30vn. Getting a feeling they are over hardened. I have had no issues with chipping on Taichung spydercos or older Golden Kni...

Re: How Spyderco changed your approach to knives

Never was big on ergonomics, key feature for me was a bottle opener. Carried my leatherman or my Swiss army for 10+ years. Ended up working in Iowa and needed something to cut salt bags. Learned that spyderco hole worked best. Now I have way to many knives and prefer my stretch 2. I have 4-5 new spy...

Re: Civilian/Matriarch

My Matriarch is now daily carry, my wife took it. She wanted something aggressive due to an incident this last weekend. Realistically hawksbill shape really cuts well just the fragile tip is the issue. Great for cutting one handed. Frn provides great traction. For a last ditch option I bought in. As...

Re: Micro Serrations

So how does this relate to the different steels available now? Micro serrations have to increase the chance of chipping as they are essentially fracture points? As we push the material hardness things change...

Re: Knifejoy Exclusive SMOCK!

Whole point of sprints and dealer exclusive for me is not having to buy after market scale.

Smock is awesome! I just don’t see the value for me as I already have a smock with a black handle.

Re: I don’t always carry a Back Lock...

Bought a Stretch 2 to try V-Toku... Then an Endura, Delica and a Matriarch. Through the process I have found I like finger choil on the blade and back locks. Waiting to buy a police frn as soon as I get pissed trying to by sprint runs. Very happy with spyderco back locks vs other brands, no issues w...

Re: Urban Ti Elmax

Not big on titanium, I love elmax! Lionsteel collaboration slip joint with a spyderco hole would be nice.

I would buy an urban in carbon fiber, with upgraded steel.
