Re: 3d printed clear Chaparral scales

It's like a Raffir Noble Chap where they forgot to add the wire screens to the resin.

Re: DLT Kapara Exclusive!

Hmm. Not my ideal configuration for a Kapara sprint (I've wanted S90V for ages, and some sort of handle material classier than G10. Raffir Noble's been growing on me lately) but I'm probably going to try to get it anyways if it doesn't sell out in 30 seconds.

Re: SS K390 Stretch Anticpation Thread

If it were to come out in the normal curved spine Stretch blade shape, but between the straight spine and me not liking the Stretch 2 as much as the original FRN Stretch (Which is possibly my favorite folding knife pattern)... eh, I might pass.

Re: Native Chief first and ongoing impressions thread

I was able to snag one of the Rex 45 chiefs, and after fondling it for a while, there's one observation about the knife I'm finding odd given my usual tastes. I normally like Spyderco's 50/50 choils, but it really doesn't seem like it benefits this one. Gripping up on the choil doesn't feel right li...

Re: New release 3/24 CutleryShoppe exclusive!

Had one in my cart at 1001 MST, entering card number at 1002... and already sold out and won't let me finalize the order.

Thanks for the reminder of why I usually don't even bother trying to score sprint runs and exclusives these days, I guess.

I believe it was KnifeWorks that did a Delica recently in 204P. Perhaps they will do a Police in that configuration.
Knifeworks had a Delica in 204P, Bento did M390, DLT did 20CV. The latter two are still available.

I like drop points a lot, but the only drop point Spyderco I can think of is the Stretch, which is quite a unique drop point.

Which Spydies are you thinking of?
Just skimming the catalog: Amalgam, Bradley, Brouwer, Centofante 3, Kapara, SpyOpera, Stretch, UKPK and I'm sure I missed a few.

Re: Practical methods for making Salt knives pointier

Pretty sure it is coated. The hardware is all black, and it’s a Salt series knife. All newer-production Seki Salt series knives have black hardware. They started coating the screws, lock bars, etc. a while back for some reason. The LC200N Pac Salt isn't sold in a black blade version. Yet? It would ...

Re: Spyderedged Sprint Runs: Your Picks

Give some teeth to the Breedens: A CE Captain and SE Breeden Rescue.

Bring back the Reverse-S Meerkat.

Ooo, and a SE Khukri. With that steep negative blade angle it's practically a hawkbill.

Re: SpyderEdge on Wharncliffe blade question

I picked up a SE Rockjumper the other day - my first serrated wharncliffe. I can attest that while it's not as good at destroying blackberry brambles as a SE hawkbill like the Spyderhawk, it still gets the job done pretty easily; a lot better than I suspect a PE wharncliffe would have been (I'm kick...

Two more: The Centofante 3 (With the same blue FRN as the rest and a goldish bug inlay?), and a Spin sprint.

Again I like your thinking! :) Though for me the icing on the cake would be an ffg blade for the Centofante.
Nah, gotta keep the hollow grind (And swedge).
