Re: Colors - Talkin' Story - Marketing

I like colorful knives because they help me keep track of different steels when I have multiple versions of the same knife. I like being able to match the knives to my clothes, half the time to make them disappear and half the time to make them stand out. Same thing with shiny clip versus black clip...

Re: Coffee and Tea taste better out of certain mugs

I must be going on 10 years of drinking out of stainless steel (that sure does stain!). I don't imagine the flavor changes much from the cup. That's like the beer glasses with different shapes. Steel always flavors the coffee. I use one for travel and for hunting, but not for daily use. Well darn, ...

Great collections of blue, guys!
Thanks. It just so happens that I like S110V, K390, S90V and Seki models. All the sprints seem to be some shade of blue.

I'd like to show off some of the nicer blues. Somehow with all the shades of blues, it looks like the color gets washed out.

At 11 o clock, C28GFPE Dragonfly Nishijin /ZDP-189.
Old photo; :confused: no idea what it was about and why that one is the middle?

That's a pretty cool photo. I'm glad you have that one. That's one of my most prized Dragonflies.

Re: Let’s see some blues

Some of these blues are tough to consider blue. Does Super Blue count? :D I have a glow in the dark back spacer on my techno. The one that looks black... is black, but it is blue lined. I have a few more that aren't pictured. I think I have a blue Rescue somewhere.

Re: Is anyone else completely in love with the Dragonfly?

One member likened the Dragonfly to popcorn. :D You can’t stop at one. https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/800x600q90/922/XwM3e3.jpg I don't see it, so please tell me you have the Nishijin one in there! I have a lot of them and I used to carry them a lot, but I don't carry them as much as I used to.

Re: that sal is a stand up guy

That's pretty cool.

At that age, I was good at losing things. I hope he doesn't lose that knife. That would be a tough one to lose!

Re: What steel stays sharp longer?

What type of cutting do you do? I imagine you could get a lot more cutting out of the Para 3 if you also carried a small utility blade for the tougher cutting stuff. That would save your Para 3 edge. You might want to try CPM S110V. CPM S110V has higher wear resistance and is easily available if you...

Re: What Spyderco has surprised you the most?

I guess I also have to nominate the Military. Of all the locks there are, the liner lock is my least favourite. Putting my thumb into the way of the closing blade... there must be better ways, and I think there are. Plenty. Nevertheless, once I got my Rex45 Millie, I had to say that all the other a...

Re: Linerless Police 4

I really like the Pacific Salt 2 and the Para 3 lightweight and the Police 4 FRN. They added the hollowed out structural support and made them all feel strong and super light. I bought a cheapy Stainless handled frame lock from another company and they hollowed out the liner. It feels light enough ...

Re: Linerless Police 4

Unless it has a heavy enough backspacer, no thanks. If not, the balance would be worse than the Para 3 LW. My Para 3 Lightweight, the balance point is just on the handle side of the pivot. If you are hammer gripping it (not choked up) with the knife up and down, it would fall away from you. Where w...

There really is a limited number of Spyderco knives in M390 for whatever reason.

Back in the early to mid sixties the only SAK type knives we saw were the occasional Camillus made all metal US Military issue knife and the ubiquitous Camillus made Cub Scout knives.
I grew up in the 80's. SAK was more common and popular then.

Swiss Army knives were rare and all but unheard of when I was a kid. A couple of rich nerd types had them, but most of us had Barlows and Stockmans, or Boy Scout and Cub Scout knives.
That's interesting. I do know that when you get into the ones with a lot of pieces, they get pretty expensive.

Re: How did you get interested in Spyderco knive

You guys didn't have a swiss army knife when you were young? I must have been 10ish or under 10 when I had a swiss army knife. I grew up in a small town, though. I was a small time knife guy, I had a plastic handled Buck knife for working, a Chinese made, steel handle Kershaw and a Chinese made, ste...
