Re: I tried so hard...

Maybe the Rhino? It's not FRN, but it weighs less and is shorter than a Delica.

Re: Any interest in a Spyderco utility knife (box cutter)

I don't consider "box cutter" and "utility knife" to be synonymous. Something like the Rexford RUT or Gerber Prybrid are box cutters. But they are not utility knives. No one is going to use a tool like those all day (and day after day) on a jobsite working on a roofing or drywall (or flooring or plu...

Re: 3/4 of 2020 are almost passed...

Haven't purchased any knives (from any maker) in 2020 so far. That's not too unusual for me; I often go several years between purchases.

However, that will change when (if?) the new Swick models drop. Those are the only models in the 2020 reveals that I really want to get.

Re: Predictions for Reveal 6

Nothing earth shattering, but these all seem like they will probably happen eventually. Maybe not all in the next reveal though. Straight spine Stretch becomes a production model (with standard black handle). SE version of Dragonfly wharncliffe. Rescue 3 gets an orange handle version. PM2 lightweight.

Re: DLT Exclusive Delica OD Green FRN and Coated Cruwear

The first sprint run was kind of an experiment to begin with so I don't know if this is even possible, but I'd really like to see the straight spine Stretch done in this config. If not the SSS, at least the Endura and/or Endela. I don't carry the Delicas I've got now, so I probably won't get this. B...

Re: Best "work knives"?

Really the "work knife" that gets the most use in the garage and in the yard is a Stanley utility knife. I have one in every toolbox and a few more in drawers around the house. Most have PE blades but I keep one loaded with SE blades. For Spyderco, it used to be a first-generation (154CM hollow grin...

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

I voted "no" because: * I don't think Spyderco can compete from a price standpoint in the folding saw market. I'm sure the quality would be there, but even the Chinese made Byrd Cara Cara sells for more than $30, and you can get folding saws for much less than that. A folding saw made in the USA/Jap...

Re: Double Edged Finger Ring Fixed Blade

It doesn't have a ring, but have you looked at the Spyderco Warrior or Pygmy Warrior fixed blades? They have a curved (not a tanto) blade, but they have a cutting edge on one side and serrations on the spine. The full size Warrior used H1 steel, so it's also rustproof. The smaller Pygmy Warrior uses...

Well thanks a lot for sharing that with us Vivi :) Everytime I hear the "Fiskar's " name mentioned I always hear good about their products.

Re: Dragonfly vs Lil' Native

I voted Dragonfly, but it really depends on the use case. For my specific use case, I wanted a knife to carry loose (not clipped) in my pocket and the FRN Dragonfly is much lighter than the G10 Lil Native. When the knife is sitting at the bottom of your pocket, lighter is better. But in your case, s...

This is just a guess, but it looks like a small hippo tusk. It's got the right shape and flattened section at the end.

Re: Anyone Here Like Punk Music?

Lots of good stuff mentioned so far. A few more to consider: Husker Du, Dropkick Murphys, Fugazi, Black Flag (and Rollins solo work).

I'd consider Sonic Youth, Violent Femmes, and (early) DEVO as punk too.

And the godfather of punk: Iggy Pop and the Stooges.

Re: Anybody still use CASH?

When a store accepts a CC, they are charged for each CC transaction. Determining the exact amount that gets paid is convoluted; it depends on the CC used, how it is processed (e.g., swiped/tapped vs. web site), what middleman system processes the CC transaction, and some other things. But all togeth...
