Re: Which spyderco is in the mail?

I just picked up a Hundred Pacer from the post office. For a huge knife, this thing is sexy.

Re: Opinions Wanted: Top 5 Best Spydercos

Hmm. Hard to narrow it down...

1. Stretch 1
2. Dyad
3. Khukri
4. Spyderhawk (Large SE hawkbill is maybe not the best EDC knife, but it's unbeatable in the garden or clearing brush).
5. Serrata.

Honorable mention goes to the Barong, Centofante 3, Hungarian, and byrd Wings Slipit.

Re: Have you found the one?

The FRN Stretch (But not the FRN Stretch 2; lots of disappointment there) is my "If you could only have one Spyderco, which would it be?" knife. Size, comfort, cutting ability, aesthetics, practicality, all up there.

Re: Fixed blade release of a folder?

A fixed blade Tuff would be nice. Maybe with a bit thinner blade, though. That thing was a monster. That's what makes it the TUFF. Also keep the 3V and I'd buy one. Problem was that it's so thick behind the edge that it wasn't that good at actually being a knife. Ed's designs usually have much bett...

Re: S30V, VG-10; But If I Had A Choice???

I wonder if the dislike of VG-10 comes from it just being an older steel that's still used for the majority of Japanese models. Their prices keep going up, and then you look at all the different sexy PM steels (Plus more knives with fancier handles compared to FRN or plain G-10 that make up most JP ...

Re: Unpopular Blade Steels That You Like?

Lol! Yep, 3V for me too! Extremely popular in the fixed blade world, but vilified for folders. A dealer told me that they have tried to ink exclusives for 3V folders and Spyderco has shut them down. I have no idea why they won't at least test the waters with a 3V sprint or exclusive in something li...

Re: Byrd wings and wings slipit

A bit belated reply, but I don't check the forums very often these days. The Wings Slipit is my favorite Byrd; it fills a sweet slot between the Dyad and Dyad Jr. size-wise, and while it doesn't have the traditional Dyad super pointy tip on the PE blade, it's a very practical useful design. I'd love...

Re: What would you like to see next from Byrd?

I'd like to see a re-release of the Wings Slipit, maybe with a different color G-10 or something to distinguish it from the first run.

Re: The Serrata - tell me about it

The Serrata is my favorite Spyderco fixed blade. Fits my hand like a glove, ideal size for general purpose outdoorsy stuff for me, nice sharp point and lots of belly... it's just a joy to use. It's definitely one of the more underappreciated knives in the lineup (And I'm honestly surprised it hasn't...

Re: Name a Spyderco knife you thought you would like but REALLY LOVED once you bought it.

The Serrata. Bought it thinking it looked nice, quickly became my favorite fixed blade knife. I'd sell a kidney for one in 3V or another fancy tool steel, but the 440C performs a lot better than I was expecting, and the knife itself feels like it was customized for my hand, it's my favorite length f...

Re: Folders to Fixed Blades. What Spydies Would You Convert?

A fixed blade version of the Tuff, with a thinner blade or steeper grind for better edge geometry, would be really nice.
