Re: Why don't they chrome plate carbon steel?

I have an old Kabar J. Bowie that is chrome plated.

Re: DLT Kapara Exclusive!

I'm sure a number of fans will swap the 20CV into the standard carbon fiber scales.
I've never owned a Kapara. I'm interested in getting one but I think I'd prefer the standard version because of the scales.

Re: Very late lockup?

Unless there's blade play I wouldn't worry about it and perhaps more importantly Spyderco is not going to see it as an issue.
Personally I prefer an earlier lockup.

I love the Wharnie Dragonfly 2. Really looking forward to the K390 version.

The mad dash is kind of funny. I can see why some would be frustrated but it's just a game. There are plenty of high performing knives that you can buy without being the fastest.

Re: Are you interested in a new run of Spyderhawk hawkbill?

I would buy one. I sold the Sprint in orange. Great knife, it was a moment of weakness.

Re: Any interest in ~1.0 mm blade thickness?

The best way to improve performance of a 2mm blade is not to thin out the spine, IMO. Adjust the angle of the primary grind so that it terminates at a thinner measurement. AKA, a regrind. The Chaparral is not ground especially thin but the thin blade stock makes up for that and it does slice well. L...

Re: Wharncliffe Para Military 2 CUTLERY SHOPPE EXCLUSIVE

It's almost like Spyderco tries to make some knives ugly. The spine profile is just wrong.

The spine profile doesn't look good, IMO although it's easily fixed.

Re: Pivot-Screws on Maniago Slippies

I don't think the micarta would deform like the FRN. I once had a knife with a spinning pivot (from a different brand). I was trying to take it apart. I put lateral (prying) pressure on the blade and that allowed me to unscrew the pivot.

Anybody hear from Campsaver? They emailed me that they could no longer provide a delivery estimate. So I guess they may not come through at all.

Re: MAPLE CHAP SHIPPING TO DEALERS WOO HOO

Got mine last night. It's my favorite Chap thus far. It came slightly off center with a small amount of side to side play that remained despite tightening the pivot. So I took it apart. The internals make me appreciate the quality even more. The posts on the clip side are all D shaped. Tolerances ar...
