Re: TKJ Spyderco exclusive cruwear ????

I'm not a fan of DLC either, I'm pretty happy with how satin steel looks regardless of if the steel is Stainless or not.

I do avoid a lot of these DLC sprints and exclusives.

Re: Black S90V Delica with blue liners - KW exclusive

Depending on how bad the black stain is, you could possibly remove it with metal polish and a little rubbing.

Some people think knives aren't supposed to be super pretty and that they are meant to be beaten up some, which is mostly true because of what they are meant to do.

Re: Help me identify this Paramilitary 2

Yeah, one of the first ones of the first run. 107 is the collector's club #, 107 is designated to a certain person who owned the collector's club subscription. If it wasn't the original Para 2, then the collector's club would have been marked with a V at the end to signify "Variant". Yours would be ...

Re: Manix Observations (C95 vs XL)

They look awfully close. Thanks for the photos. Does the M2 lockback feel too fat to you, or do you enjoy the width? Hey Vivi, thanks. To me, plus or minus a little bit doesn't matter too much. I do love the Manix 2, it is one of my favorite models (probably due to the fact that I'm not a heavy use...

Re: What Spydercos are you giving as Christmas presents?

A guy I work with carries a SS Cricket. I got in a trade a Nishijin Cricket about 2 years ago and had never used it or opened it and had planned on giving it to him. Friday I gave it to him. He told me that he got the Cricket because he saw me carrying Spyderco. (I never knew.) He was surprised that...

I wouldn't mind a S35VN Dragonfly.

I didn't know Nutnfancy was still alive. He disappeared for a while.

Re: Manix Observations (C95 vs XL)

I like the lock back Manix 2. I imagine it wouldn't be too difficult to translate that into an XL version.

*edit* I can get you a comparison of the C95 versus the lock back Manix 2.

8Cr13MoV. I got a few cheaper knives and the one with 8Cr13MoV has "better than I thought" edge retention.

Re: Spyderco Name Recognition?

I think Byrd is the solution for most American people. I used to be one of them. I would walk into Walmart, look at the knife counter and pick one based off what brand I thought was good and the price. I want to say from some of the people I've met: If they really need a sharp knife, they usually g...

Re: Forum Join Date Box Code Game

My forum join date is II, September of 2009. Here are the boxes I have from around that time. It doesn't seem super right. I remember waiting months to get the Assist. I feel like the Stretch, Rock Lobster and Chokwe all came out after I had been on the forum for a year or so. The G-10 Endura was a ...

I'm II.

Does anyone have a box with their join month/year on it?

Probably, we probably joined because we bought one. I don't know if I'd still have it.

Re: Native Designer

I thought I heard that Eric was the person behind the lock improvements of the Native 5. I'm not sure if that qualifies it as an EG/SAL design like the Para 2.

I was always a fan of FFG Spyder Edge. I wouldn't mind seeing an Endura or Endela in FFG SE.

But both come in full flat grind serrated edge anyway... ?! Actually an Endela SE is in my pocket right now...
