Re: Enuff Drop Point/Leaf in LC200N PE

I'm excited for this knife. I really like the Enuff ergonomics, but the small thick blade limits use for me... even 0.5 inches longer and a little thinner would make this a real winner!

Re: Please Pardon the shameful sales pitch - Rock Jumper

Hi, Thanx for all of the input. It's really appreciated. As I've said, this is a test piece. The "Handle forward" concept permits us to bring the edge to the handle. If the concept is well received, we'll make variations. We can add jimping on the spine in the future if that's what's wanted. We don...

Re: Are you EDC'ing your WATU...

I EDC the Watu now more than any other knife. It has kicked the Delica out of my pocket... it's just more slicey and easier to carry with the deep carry pocket clip. Also very thin in the pocket. A phenomenal knife. I hope they come out with some Sprint runs in Rex45.

Re: 1st Impressions Of The New SpyOpera

Re: Police HAP40 and Pakkawood: KC Exclusive

I bought a Pakkawood Delica last year, some time around late winter/early spring and it was the same price as it is now. I would assume the Endura held steady as well, but can't say that with any confidence. Anyway, this exclusive is calling my name. I still have a Police 4 G10 and use it a lot. I ...

Re: Kiwi 5?

I would love an original Kiwi (backlock, same blade shape with hollow grind and pointy tip) but in the size of the Kiwi 3 (slightly larger than the original) and with a pocket clip (like the Kiwi 4)! A hybrid of all, but in the same great ergonomics and blade as the original.

Re: Affordable fixed blade (AFK)

Hi Carrot, Cycleguy, Thanx for the input. We'll make up an "Enuff 2" proto with 3mm stock and a 4" blade. As long as the handle doesn't change, there is little tooling costs for the handle. Tooling up for an FRN sheath would be expensive, but we'll make Kydex (Boltaron) sheaths for testing. The Fix...

Re: Schempp Rock 'Chopper' idea

What about a tool steel? I have the original custom that Ed made with 52100 and carbon handle. sal I'd be happy in pretty much any steel. And I imagine a 6mm chunk of H1 might be prohibitively expensive. Perhaps some type of laminate steel? I know Fallkniven's very tough S1/A1/A2 knives uses a 420j...

Re: Rock Jumper Thread

Hmmm looks like this one needs a hawkbill version too! Oh yes! I probably won't buy the Rock Jumper because it's too similar to the warncliff Delica I already have, but a hawkbill version of this would be awesome. Similar to the Superhawk, but better because there isn't a choil, and in lightweight ...

Re: Watu...AKA Lil Chokwe

Mine arrived today. Totally awesome!

I think this might kick the Delica out of my pocket... it's superior in many ways... more neutral grip, pointy tip, thinner grind, deep carry wire clip. The only thing missing is a black wire clip, which is easily remedied.

I use my Temp 2 outside quite a bit. It works well. Eric has been talking about making a Temp 2 in Golden. Same scales, What steel?

For U.S. based Carbon steel, I would advocate for Rex45, O1, or Cruwear.

We're looking into it. Is the Bushcraft blade shape preferred over the Proficient blade shape. Both were designed by Chris Claycomb. sal I prefer the blade shape of the Bushcraft (less belly, more drop-point blade shape). I'd be curious if you could keep the shape of the bushcraft blade, but do a F...

Doesn't bother me to have to call Spyderco to get a replacement clip. I'm glad I can at least to do that. I was just curious why they wouldn't just put it on their Spyderco website. But not a big deal. Thanks for the responses!
