Re: flipper recommendation

If you can still find one available, the Mantra 2 is quite nice.

Re: Permanent damage that you've actually done to a knife?

Once bent a portion of the edge to the side on a Bark River knife when I tried to baton through a knotty piece of firewood that it was way too small to sanely even attempt to split in the best of conditions. One of these days I need to send it in to see if they can straighten it out. I'm still surpr...

Re: DLT Exclusive Delica OD Green FRN and Coated Cruwear

I can't believe they still have some available, considering how fast sprints and exclusives sell out these days. Got one on the way.

Re: POLL: Return of the SpyderSaw? Single bladed or as part of a Dyad?

I have a Spydersaw, but... it just isn't a very good saw. So I'll pass barring a significant redesign. Hmm. Many, many years ago I think I made a post comparing it to a SAK saw and the Byrd Toolharp (Remember that stinker?). Wonder if I can find it again.... Edit: https://forum.spyderco.com/viewtopi...

What's the one on the bottom? It looks like an OTF but I didn't think Spyderco had ever made one.

Re: What’s Your Favorite Underrated Sleeper Knife?

I dont even have one, but I do plan on getting one eventually. The Pattada looks great. It is great, especially if you like splinter picker tips. I think the only thing pointier I have from Spyderco is the Dyad. Comfortable handle - Spyderco needs to do more G10 that's not just a flat slab of peel ...

The Santoprene that Benchmade is using in a couple of their new fixed blade knives is pretty nice.

One possible issue however, with it being hollow grind, the tip area might be significantly thicker behind the edge than the rest of the blade

It would be very cool to see a mini-Hundred Pacer or a jumbo Rhino, though. I like the Rhino's comp lock, but the HP's awesome textured scales and slightly more subtle trailing point blade.
Or just bring back the Persians:

Re: Schempp Rock 'Chopper' idea

I still think V-Toku 2 would be a good choice. Tough tool steel, made in Japan so you don't have to import something (Or produce the knife somewhere else).... Hap-40 would be nice too. I really just want a Seki-made heavy duty outdoors/woodsy/bushcrafty fixed blade knife, though; doesn't necessarily...

Will the drop point stretch also be made in K390?
I hope so. It's just not a Stretch without that curved drop point blade...

I prefer the original Stretch design over the S2, but a K390 S2 would definitely get some pocket time...

Make it thicker, yeah, FFG like the VG-10 version, and in V-Toku 2.
