Re: Are sprint runs too small?

I think a lot of them are too small. I've been interested in the Rex45 and Cruwear ones, but I've never found a store that was taking pre-orders when I was checking them out. Listings always went from 'coming soon' to 'sold out' with no intermediate, and I'm not willing to pay the jacked-up price to...

In what steel would you like to see the next version?
VToku2 would be interesting. MBC designs should have tough steels to take lots of abuse, right?

Re: Li'l Temperance 3: A (not so) li'l review

I like mine. A Seki made knife with S30V steel is a rarity... I thought the Japanese makers don't like using foreign steel? If not for the lack of a choil and wire clip, it'd be better named the Lil' Superleaf. It reminds me a lot of that knife. I think it was a victim of the Japan tax and the PM2 a...

Have you tried the AEB-L? And also, what's the "issue with Mangiano" ?
Only issue with mine is that it has the stiffest backspring I've ever seen in a non-rusted shut slipjoint. It's actually difficult to close, especially from the half-stop.

Re: Idea for times of lockdown and/or reduced activity: Use your Spydies for food-prep!

My Bradley Bowie and Seratta see a lot of kitchen use anyways, along with some non-Spyderco fixed blades. I hardly even touch my actual kitchen knives.

The Hundred Pacer is nice in the kitchen, too, when it comes to folders.

Re: What are your favorite ~3.5 inch/ ~3 inch edge 50/50 choil Spydercos and why?

Well, for me of course the great Stretch 1: A lot of actual edge in a very compact package, and differently to many others here I actually prefer the shorter, shallower choil of the Stretch 1 over the deeper one on the Stretch 2 (somehow in real use the Stretch 1 choil offers me a bit more control ...

Anyone ever gotten a magnetized knife before?

I just opened up a new hap40 Endura, and there's metal filings stuck to the blade. Other knives stick to it. It's going to damage my credit card twice over...

This is a new one for me. :confused:

Re: Carbon Steel Temperance 2?

Spyderco made a cast 440C steel fixed blade don’t recall the name of it but due to thickness behind the edge I did not buy it, reports of its favorable qualities and the use of 440C with my Buck Folder has led to the desire to try some cast 440C and the temperance 2 is a model I like. The Serrata. ...

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 ...
