Re: Spydies you consider selling or passing on one day

I have plenty of knives, but mostly hover around the same number. I think it’s a bad idea to bank on passing a large amount of knives down as inheritance. Your kids may not care about knives enough to do anything but sell a big box of knives. If you’re going to pass things down do it one at a time w...

Re: Cricket - due for an upgrade?

Here’s why you’re not entirely right, my friend. It aids in opening the small ones by lengthening your grip... Oh yeah, I know why people people put “lanyards” (not 100% sure that’s the right term for this) on small knives to help make it easier to grab onto. But it really makes little sense on a k...

Re: Cricket - due for an upgrade?

The thing I would change is put the lanyard hole on the proper end of the handle. It's annoying to no end putting it in your pocket lanyard first. Completely defeats the purpose of the fob I like on short knives. A huge part of the reason I rarely carry mine. I don’t think a lanyard makes sense at ...

Re: Mourning for the brick and mortar stores

Local shops were never great. No shop has ever stocked every Spyderco model available and I’ve never seen one at a competitive price in 15 years. The internet has done wonderful things for the knife industry.

Re: Arghh...Manix 2 Side-To-Side Blade Play When Open

Why do you think adjusting the screws won’t help? Torque everything down, then loosen the pivot screw until the blade is movable.

Re: Why all the Manix love?

I like to carry a knife that when I take it out around people, that may not necessarily be into knives, say that’s a nice knife. ... Am I wrong and do I just need to give in and buy one to experience the wonder of the Manix? You've never handled a Manix 2 because you're worried people won't be impr...

Re: Getting a Native 5 - Which Steel?

I’m not a fan of the Native 5. I think the previous gen Native is better ergonomically. Unless you need the chunkier blade geometry I think the Chaparral is far better.

Re: I'm conflicted on next purchase...

Chaparral LW is almost always the best choice. Spyderco doesn’t make a better small EDC knife.

Most people own one pocket knife and did not spend $100 on it.

Re: Straight-spine Stretch

Re: people buying knives with their eyes, this is an unstoppable trend since knives are shifting with most other goods to online sales. Manufacturers just have to adapt. And reviews help a ton.

Re: Straight-spine Stretch

I’m confused... why would anyone want to add material to the Stretch blade to make a straight line? What effect does that have on using the knife?

Re: Ouroboros G10 polished and contoured

That turned out really cool. Is the Sliverax nested? If not it would be simple to make you’re own scales just by tracing it.

NO, it did not work well, and Super Steel Steve bent the beans out of it. It's garbage.
So what would change if Benchmade claimed it was 62 Rc? It’s still garbage.

Re: "HRC as advertised." Who is accurately listing HRC?

The last thing we need is an Rc arms race. I don’t have the faintest clue what Rc any of my Spyderco knives are. Somehow they all work great. Are you saying that you would be fine with a Benchmade folder in 3V with an HRC of 56? That is what started these discussions two weeks ago. Does it work wel...

The weird part is that nobody from Spyderco had ever commented on what is going on.
What do you want them to say? It’s past due. Likely there’s issues with the factory not producing up to their standards in some area.
