Re: Do most of us need larger knives?

I agree about it being more about preference vs. need. I’ve carried a Ladybug daily for almost twenty years now and it’s always been adequate for whatever I needed to cut. I once skinned out a whitetail deer with nothing more than my Schrade 34OT Stockman just to see if it could be done. It worked ...

Re: Models That Absolutely DESERVE Sprint Runs

I'd give my left leg to have a Sprint of the C50 Centofante II. I once had two, but I gave one to my cousin as a graduation gift. Sal said the tooling is long gone, so a Sprint is not likely. Still, I guy can dream, right?

Re: Rhino comparisons and in hand

Thank you for the comparisons and review, Spyderg. I'm glad you're liking the Rhino! Mine is breaking in nicely too. I can *just* about get it to swing completely shut with a slight flick of the wrist.

Re: The Tale of Two Rhinos

The slightly sharp edge isn’t really a problem but is noticeable with a lot of fidgeting. Perhaps different sized hands may notice less or maybe more. Maybe mine is a touch more noticeable than others? I just felt it was worth mentioning. Yes the ergos are fantastic, but I can’t give up clip handed...

Re: The Tale of Two Rhinos

Thank you all for the responses on the two models, I appreciate that. My apologies for being absent on the forum. I've been going through some personal stuff lately, but I hope to check in a little more often. Anyway, back to the discussion: Neat that you got to have an original to see what your des...

The Tale of Two Rhinos

Earlier this week, I was pleased to receive one of the original Reinhold Rhinos from Spyderco, made in Tai Pei, Taiwan. (Thank you again, Eric and Alex!) Although the original Tai Pei Rhino never made it to market, I thought it would be interesting to show a few side-by-side pictures of the original...

Re: Bench grinder with multitool attachment

The Jet grinder is a solid tool. I have the Jet 2x42” model with an 8” pad sander. I’ve made a number of knives with this machine and it’s served me well over the last five years. A few things to consider: the Jet grinder wasn’t designed for knifemaking, so there are a few limitations (such as the p...

Re: Spyderco

Welcome aboard, Luddite. Sounds like you've got a very nice start to your collection. For image hosting, I prefer to use Imgur. It's fast and easy to use. Basically, you will first need to download the free Imgur app to your smartphone/tablet/etc. and then you can enable Imgur access to your photos ...

Re: Spyderco C41FF5 Native 5 - Fluted Carbon Fiber & S90V

This knife was a nice surprise, I like it a LOT more than I thought I would. The same here. Especially considering that I didn't like 40th anniversary. Great pictures and video as always. Thank you for sharing. Beautiful knife for sure! It is good to see you back, Roman. I hope you are doing well. ...

Re: Q

Yes! I would love you to see a rebirth of the Q. The Q was one of my first Spyderco purchases and has always been a favorite model of mine. With today’s technology, I would think a similarly skeletonized G-10 handle might be a possibility (depending on cost of production, of course). The original Qs...

Re: Happy Birthday SpyderNut

Thank you again, guys. Appreciate the kind words.

Surprisingly, no new Spydies or other knives were received. (First time in a long time). My wife blessed me with some knifemaking equipment, including a new 2x72 grinder, so I'm pretty excited. :)

Something has been bothering me...

A thread in the Off Topic section reminded me of something I've been wanting to get off of my chest for some time now. Recently, I know that several of us have noticed a negative and mean-spirited tone here on the Forum. I am not sure what the problem is or how it got started, but it is noticeable a...
