Re: Manix 2 Cruwear Smooth G10

Got mine today. Glad to be able to get a cruwear Spyderco. Missed the other (Para 2) offerings. The smooth g10 is different, feels nice but not grippy... will have to carry for a while to see how it works out overall. Looks great, even grind, sharp, good fit and finish. 👌

How is the F&F on the Fradon lock Hap40/ SUS 410 CF Delica? Is $140 a good deal?

Re: Sliverax bearing race CQI progression

Evil D,
You said you recieved the updated one from Paul. So my question is, with those different engineering changes how long before Spyderco is going to enact the CQI? Or did they already?

Re: Are lightweight versions hindering supersteel potenial?

I see the consensus is vastly for LW version. I was amazed at the number posting in discussion and the positive posts also. Now if I could only find one. Now I'm sorry I waited b/c the Cutlery Shoppe was 155 and it's now sold out. I was looking and Manix2 S90V LW is ~115 and maxamet is~181 other pla...

Are lightweight versions hindering supersteel potenial?

Does the lightweight version, e.g. LW Manix 2 Maxamet,keep you from using a supersteel to full potenial vs knife with steel/ ti liners? Most seen with Maxamet , S110V. Holding back from purchase since I don't have any LW versions.

Re: Nitrogen-Alloyed Knife Steels

I wonder if Spyderco would do a Mule Team. They haven't done damascus with Nitrogen steel.

Re: CQI and heat treat

Is it like how you know how your own oven works, it might take a few tries to get recipe to your standard? Also I wonder does Spyderco use a contactor for heat treat or do they have their own ovens? I'm sure they are not re-inventing the HT as much when the manufacturer has done the research already...

Re: VTOKU Sprint Run

+1 I'd love to see sprint runs of the kitchen knives in some of these steels. I use my kitchen knives every day, multiple times each day, and I'd love to upgrade them a bit (and get more time with the sprint steels in the process). I like your thinking, hehe, Spyderco kitchen knife in Japanese carbo...

The 943 is much better imho but the tip looks too fine. I've never seen/ held one in person though.

Re: The Advocate - An Official Statement from Spyderco

Beside the internal revamp it is probably way too early to ask/ expect an outside revamp. The knife has not been in the field for that long and not in as many numbers as could be, considering the current state, until it is re-issued. I'm glad I've waited even though the Advocate hit so many buttons ...
