Re: Manix2 4v marbled carbon fiber exclusive

I cannot understand people's complaints about the hollow grind. Given a good steel such as 4V, does the hollow grind really impact the cutting performance in any meaningful way? Not meaning to provoke an argument, just curious.

Re: BHQ with a hap40 Lum Tanto exclusive?

If there are minor centering issues is there anything the end customer can do to correct this without sending it back? (Haven't had this knife, but still going to buy one anyway notwithstanding the comments expressed in this thread). Thanks.

Re: KW Excl: Mil CF/Ti R.I.L. S90V = Mid May?!

[quote="WireEdge Roger"]Just got mine as well. Very nice. I like it with the CQI changes.

Can someone enlighten me what CQI changes have been incorporated in this model? Thanks.

Re: Centofante Sprint?

Correct me if I am wrong,I think Centofante is one of the thinnest Spydercos, and a sprint run would not do it justice if it is not done in a steel which lends itself to slicing. HAP40 would be nice, but if that is too expensive I am happy with CTS-XHP.

Re: Rhino

Man, BD1 is not exciting but this is still the only Mid Year that floats my boat do you want to wait a year for sprint with S110V and dark green polished G10 scales (I know, wishful thinking :) )? or get this now? I for one would prefer (and can wait for) S110V steel. Sorry Michael, I do not mean t...

Re: Rhino

Michael, one or two centimeters longer would be ideal for me but I am willing to give the existing version a try when it comes out. Thanks again for following up on my post.

Re: Rhino

I find the the size of the Rhino, in its current version, a tad small. If the length of the handle can be made a little longer to allow a four-finger grip, I would plunge in immediately. If the size cannot be changed, is there a possibility of a larger version ('Rhino XL'?) in future? I really like ...

Re: Amsterdam Meet 2016 Report of Spyderco Prototypes

The current run of Delicas and Enduras drop the spine about 1/2" from the point. The original ones I fell in love with are a straight spine from the thumb ramp all the way to the point: Hello demoncase, I didn't noticed the small drop until you mentioned this. Is there a functional reason behind th...

Re: New lil matriarch!

I also have a plain-edged lil matriarch and agree that it is a nice little knife, may be a bit underestimated.

I would like to side-track a bit: how would you sharpen this knife? Can it be done with the Sharpmaker? Thanks!

Re: HAP40 Delica has arrived!!

Thanks SpeedHoles for your reply. It is increasingly difficult for buyers not in the US to keep track of the sprint runs and buy them from the few dealers who managed to get sufficient quantities in stock.

Re: HAP40 Delica has arrived!!

I looked around in Knifecenter and found that they said the item was discontinued. So Spyderco had stopped production of this item already?

Re: HAP40 Delica and Endura

WireEdge Roger, just for discussion sake, try your knife on an orange or better yet, a lemon, and see if anything happens. (No, my knife hasn't arrived yet).
