Re: SpyOpera, Brouwer, ...

Watu.. .though for my uses it falls into the gentlemen's knife category since the blade is so thin and the tip looks fragile . After the initial hype, I only rarely carry it, and only for formal or business ocassions. Brouwer might be a good bet also for daily EDC uses. You should give the Chap a c...

Re: As a fan, it's sad Spyderco isn't adressing the slysz bowie problem.

Even its little history screams revolt... The market initially ignored it, it created his own in reponse. It's a fantastic animal of a knife. Who wouldn't want that kind of beast by his side Sal ? I'm not against refinements, but if everything happens I really hope the SB spirit stay intact, at lea...

Re: What "Other" is in your pocket???

Couldn't shake off the fact that despite being more rigid and made with G-10 with metal standoffs, this BHQ Bugout is still lighter than the Para3 LW.

Re: Cruwear Micarta PM2 Full liners

This release is comparable to Giantmouse's Ace Grand Micarta series. Love it when other scale materials are explored instead of sticking to G10.

Re: Cruwear Micarta PM2 Full liners

This opens the PM2 to a Pakkawood/other wood scale variants/Terotuf where the rigidity is not as strong as G-10, so it's not a big loss and probably won't eat up the standard G-10 PM2 market. Terotuf would be great on some of these knives with liners as you said. This PM2, Shaman, Native (older S11...

That makes 3 Endela variants already. Might add the Endela to my collection list. :D @31:35 in the video, Eric confirms that we wil...

Re: Reveal 7, a what now?

I'm torn between grabbing the Endura or waiting to see if this happens. I'd really like to try K390 SE one way or another. I bet its a great steel for SE. In the video I mentioned, Eric says they paid special attention to testing the K390 serrated edge because the brittleness of the higher hardness...

Re: Reveal 7, a what now?

Wishlisted for that Micarta PM2, but I doubt I'll get one. You'll get one. It's regular production. The first few batches might sell out pretty quick but they'll keep coming. Wow, that's great! Wish they would do that with the Shaman as well. Unfortunately the Shaman (assuming you're talking about ...

Re: Cruwear Micarta PM2 Full liners

posted about it on the other reveal thread. Personally this is a new direction for PM2s, but some may not like it due to the added heft. I personally would like some heft to the PM2 especially for a beater/daily use knife. EDIT: did not see the .1 oz less weight, which is surprising for full liners...

Re: As a fan, it's sad Spyderco isn't adressing the slysz bowie problem.

I still think it's an interesting discussion and a reasonable request. I'm checking now to see if there id anything in-the-works. If there is nothing happening with the model, I'll put in my pitch for your request, but things are so crazy now, I can't make any promises, especially on time. I've got...

Re: Reveal 7 Live!

Woke up this morning to my alarm and the Spyderco app telling me this surprise. Excellent reveal, Sal, Kristy and co. Happy to note that the PM2 CruCarta will be regular production. Can't wait to wipe out the smirk off the faces of those who proclaim that their satin PM2 Cruwears are far superior th...

Any way to restore FRN scale finish after damage from falling?

Hello everyone, So unfortunately one of my FRN Spydies (a Para 3 LW) fell about two and a half feet to the floor. Everything looks alright including the blade except for some scratches and tiny white gouges that cannot be seen unless really close and scrutinizing the knife. Is there any way to resto...

Oh well, kinda disappointed since I don't hav...
