Re: Invitation to the 2019 Spyderco Taipei Meet

I think there were very few U.S. ex-pats atttending last year. Too busy looking at knives to meet everyone. It was a great time. Hopefully, I will be going this year, too.

Re: Byrd Cara Cara 2 Emerson Opener: NEAT!

Now I don't need to buy one of those "wave" attachments for my Endura FFG. Very nice!
Hopefully some day I won't have to think about buying one for my most used knife ...the Tasman Salt.

Re: Best Blade Length for Self Defense; And What Do You Carry For This Purpose

Is there even a cut and dried answer to this question? To me, the best length depends partly on the situation. In certain cases, something like a Hossom Forester with a nearly 10 inch blade would be the best choice. If so, then to survive at that time with only an ARK would require tremendous skill ...

Re: New to Spyderco - Wife will be in Taiwan

www.rghknives.com.tw. Ask about a discount if not given one...especially on knives made in Taiwan. Lots of knives, so fun to just look around. Hope they have something you want. The Janisong is a great deal ... if it can get through Customs. They also usually have a few knives that have recently bee...

Re: Interesting knife: "The Disciple".

One of the very few non-Spyderco knives I regret not buying when available. Shivworks (Craig Douglas) has mentioned having a production version made at some point. It has been talked about over at the Total Protection Interactive website for some time now, but has yet to happen.

Re: Anybody used any of the spydercos with the Emerson/wave opener?

I assume that was a linerlock. As much as I liked my P'kal, I got rid of it because of a similar problem - twice. I have never had any problems with the Spyderco lockbacks that are "waved", and I've carried them for years in all kinds of clothing and all kinds of pockets.

Re: Anybody used any of the spydercos with the Emerson/wave opener?

I hope we can get a few more knives with the Spyderco version of the Emerson opener that is on the Delica, Endura, and Matriarch. It's a great option.
