Re: St Nicks Native 5 4V Lightweight

That was fast. Military model still to come? I'd be shocked if we don't see a Military. But there are still many other models they haven't done so it is just a question of where it falls in the sequence. I agree, given how fast these are selling out, I'll be amazed if we don't see a Chief, Millie, ...

Re: Favorite Spyder: Either In Larger Or Smaller Scale/Size?

I just want the PM2 with 3mm blade stock. I used to be one of the guys pleading for a downsized PM2, and they downsized everything but the blade thickness. Grrrr.

Re: AEB-L SE Sheepfoot PM2

If they made it with a thin blade, it would be a lot better. Go to a 3mm blade stock, and put a 13 dps bevel on there.

I'm always open to suggestions. Since It's my steel creation, I'm going to exploit it if it performs as I had hoped when I dreamed up the chemistry?

So is Spyderco the holder of the IP of SPY27’s formula, instead of Crucible?

Re: DLT DLC Cruwear Purple G10

Please please please start coating the liners on DLC knives. They did it on the latest Yojimbo 2 DLC, so it is possible to do on comp lock knives apparently. The uncoated liners really take away from the look of DLC knives. In general I agree about the comp lock tab. But the purple scales make the ...

Re: DLT DLC Cruwear Purple G10 PM2

My current PM2 in CruWear still has a lot of life left, so I’m probably safe. I’d be helpless to resist a bigger brother Millie in the same configuration.

Re: CPM SPY27 | Edge Performance

I'm eager to see the results 100% I saw Submicron’s review on blade forms I am hoping Shawn can confirm or deny these test. Based on sub microns review on waveform this might be the most undervalued and under rated steel to come out in a long time I went to check out these results, and am flabberga...

Re: Mantra 2 ??

If I do buy one I will pull out the blade and might not even use the flipper tab on this knife and you guys must like them from all of the replies.

Re: Mantra 2 ??

When they were on sale I bought one because it is Titanium and has a M4 blade. I like it and the size feels like a gentleman’s Knife. It takes a while before it flips half way decent and you need to flick your wrist when opening it. This. If opening a knife in a smooth, rolling gesture that starts ...

Re: Pm2 S110V

It’s not like S30V is really a “hard use” steel, anyway. If you were accustomed to, say, Cru-Wear, there might be tasks that you would hesitate to try. But the transition from S30V to S110V is nowhere near that drastic.

Re: Its a new "Golden Age"

That's adorable! It reminds me of a question that I have: what do y’all do to teach kids proper knife handling? A lot of Spyderco features fly in the face of knife safety as taught to me in my youth. Do you start them on an old-school slipjoint so they have to learn the old rules? Give them a Spyde...

Guys, as I wrote, it is about forming of band structure in metals. The title of the article is misleading, it is a clickbait and you are catching it.
I tried to form a metal band. Couldn’t find a bassist, though.
