Re: Police 4 lightweight

Nevermind the fancy steels, I want partially serrated! Yes, I know I am in the minority, but the all Stainless versions get it, and I do not like the lack of grip on those.

Re: Military...so much handle

I too wish the military had a little more blade for the existing handle, and agree it is on the large side. That said, I still love it and it has long been my primary EDC. This is hearsay, but from what I remember Sal saying (typing): Yes, gloved hands were one of the design criteria for the Militar...

Re: Serrata

So while the process has economies of scale for production, and I can partially understand why you would not want to make more, there has not been any smaller experimentations with other steels?

12 Inch Bread Z-cut Please

It looks like Spyderco is adding additional it's kitchen knife lines: https://www.spyderco.com/culinary/ For a few years I have been in the market for a good serrated offset handle bread knife with at least a 12 inch blade. I am sure Spyderco can do this right. Most of the ones I am seeing are only ...

Re: Bob Lum Chinese Folder Light Weight: Is it time? Would you want it?

Hi SEF, The high cost of tooling for FRN would make the project questionable. sal Perhaps a compromise is in order. Use one of the existing FRN platforms, but use the Lum Folder blade shape. Or maybe even make a Byrd version in using one of the FRN platforms. Since Byrds are made in China, there is...

Re: Delica Detent

The "kick" on the Delica's blade is designed to bottom out against the lug of the lock bar, leaving space between the edge and the inside surface of the handle. Unlike many traditional back lock folders, the closed blade can't be squeezed into the handle to force the edge to make contact. As such, ...

What about one with the standard blade and a wood saw, Sal ?
I think the new Dyad that Sal is developing would be a better platform for a regular blade plus a saw, since both blades will lock. Might not be much of a market for it however; the Catcherman handled saw did not last very long.

Re: How about a double edge dagger Spydie?

A double edged knife would restrict it's legality in some states and cities. The Sustain was supposed to be DE, but Sal wisely chose to allow the user to modify the false edge. Between the Sustain and the Fish Hunter, as the two most recent examples, it is pretty clear that Spyderco policy is to le...

Re: Lil temperance question

Ideally, I would like an FRN Lil' Temperance with bi-directional texture and a slight 3D curve to the scale. Nested liners like the G-10 model. Steel is a question because many are complaining that S30V is less in demand because it's an "old" steel. I'm not sure of what type of steel the market for...

I dare to ask Mr. Janich ... do you still carry a wharncliffe Delica ? Is it plain edge ? Yes, my back pocket knife is a Wharncliffe Delica, but SpyderEdge. It's reserved primarily for utility use, while two Yojimbo 2s are for other purposes. I opted for the serrated edge for rope, zip ties, and se...
