Re: Polishing a stonewashed blade.

I've polished knife blades before and S30V is what made me stop. I have several old stainless knives that came out reasonably well using progressively finer sandpaper and finishing up with polishing rouge and a Dremel tool. (by hand without disassembly, I wasn't worried about maintaining crisp lines...

Re: Mule Team MT28P CPM SPY27 Revealed!

I'm really hoping to grab one of these. I've watched the mule team program without participating for years, it never was enough of a priority to get any, but have always applauded the concept. Now, I am kicking myself as there are several I would really like to have. I am really hoping Spyderco deci...

Re: Appeal to bring back the stunning Titanium UK Pocket Knife

Wow! this is one of the ones that I regret missing out on. Lc200N would be my choice. That said, any premium steel. Time to rearrange bills again, I can't miss this one again.

Re: Two Decades of Great Spyderco Models: What's Your Fav?

My two favorites: Ladybug, just cuts and cuts and cuts. Small enough to be unobtrusive and large enough to get 99% of jobs done. Stealth Chaparral: Perfect EDC do-all blade. Small and classy enough for suit carry, strong and able enough for a day in the yard. I've never felt under knifed when carryi...

Re: custom shop...

Since everyone has an opinion, here's mine. First, there needs to be enough options to give a large number of potential finished products. For example three steels and three different handles only gives you an option of 9 separate products. If you are just picking one option of nine, it really doesn...

Pochi anticipation thread

We have a winner! I have always had a special fondness for the smaller knives. Spyderco has hit it out of the park with this one. All the small details like the paw print cutout on the clip make the Pochi the first must have knife for me in quite some time. I do have a question about the tail. Is it...

POCHI!!!

This is my first "Must Buy" knife in quite some time! I've always been a sucker for smaller knives and I can't wait to make one of these mine.

Re: Lil Native Salt SE

I agree that the blade in the rocks glass is probably a hint at an upcoming Lil Native Salt, but LC200N is also a very appropriate steel for an item like this. The glass will inevitably see a dishwasher somewhere, so it's probably best to use a steel that's rust proof . I'm just gonna go out on a l...

Re: Spyderco Rebrand Concept

Awesome work! I love the new proposed logo, while I've always been Meh about the current one. On the other hand the current one is almost universally recognized in the knife world, if I was Spyderco I would be extremely cautious about changing. I had another thought, Hemp Rope? Do younger people eve...

Re: Siren v/s Spydiechef

Thanks for the thoughts. I hadn't considered that the detent on the spydiechef might cause opening in pocket. I never had that problem with my recently sold Sage 2, Farid K2, or Spyderco Tusk. Does the Spydiechef suffer a weaker than average detent? My long experience with the Tusk has made me appre...

Siren v/s Spydiechef

First the background. I have been trying to do a better job at embracing minimalism. In fact the majority of my knives have gotten sold over the past year; I am almost down to just users now. (Less than a dozen pocketknives.) I have XXL hands. My primary EDC blade is the Chaparral Ti stealth model w...

Re: Opinions Wanted: Top 5 Best Spydercos

The best one is easy, Chaparral. Small, slim, and cuts like nobody's business. It's a knife that can and does handle 99% of what a pocketknife needs to do. At home in a suit or as a pocket knife at a campout. My personal favorite is the stealth ti model, but I will be getting a sun and moon when the...

Re: Spyderco Models From 2010 & Earlier That You Wish To Return

The one that I'd like to see return is the D'holder Toad. Updated in Titanium and a modern steel of course.

It's the one that got away, and I've never had luck with purchases on the secondary market so i shy away from getting one that way.

Re: Pendant knife

I've long been a fan of the pendant knife concept and have hoped that Spyderco would do a collaboration with Serge Panchenko and release a Spyderco version of the Coin Claw. (I have and wear a Coin Claw regularly) While the utilitarian aspects of the dog tag knife and squarehead are undeniable, they...

That said, I'm really looking forward to some new purchases in the next year. Finally gonna get a Spydie che...

Re: So what's your top 3 favorite steels? and why?

Before you know what steels I like, you should know my use. General EDC carry. Number 1: M390 (and clones). This is my latest favorite. I struggled and continue to have some difficulty with sharpening some steels like ZDP-189, I can do it, but sharpening a dull VG10 knife from dull to sharp is a joy...

Re: Does anyone else wish for a standard scale color other than black?

Just reading through the replies to this post,if I personally was to introduce a new knife, it would have black scales. Black seems to be the least objectionable color. My favorite color, purple, would turn off more buyers than black. It might bring in a few new buyers but it would lose more sales d...
