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.

Re: Civilian vs Matriarch 2 Wave

I’m that not into knives as weapons but in my opinion if it isn’t and efficient stabber I don’t think it’s a great choice.

Re: Stretch 2 SE

As far as I know the last SE Stretch version offered is now discontinued, which is a real shame because it's one of the best SE options available. Yes, long discontinued. I’ve got one and... I dunno, doesn’t stay in my pocket long. I know FFG SE is supposed to be amazing, but I think my lil matriar...

Re: Reverse S Dragonfly?

I am not sold on the reverse S design, but I might be missing something. Or, perhaps it is because it does not fit into my lifestyle. I don’t think there’s anything amazing to say about it. It’s a useful blade shape. It gets the job done. I don’t think a regular leaf shape can do anything the stubb...

Re: Reverse S Dragonfly?

Someone who finds this blade shape useful should make a video of its uses, so people like me could get some use out of them. It’s like a combo edge. Not enough of either edge. I’ve carried my reverse S Meerkat a bunch. Never found it to be a handicap. It’s less fiddly for starting cuts opening pack...

Re: Smallest spiderco knife

There are tons of small Spyderco knives. Some probably smaller than anyone really needs them to be. If you don’t need a truly short knife the Chaparral is unbeatable.

The smallest ones I have are the Copilot and Cricket. I prefer the Copilot over the more common Dragonfly.

Re: Sun and Moon Chaparall :O !!!

I agree with you. Hope this doesn't sound harsh but upon further reflection I think this new Chaparral is a total dud. When I see all these modern traditionals from Lion Steel, I wonder why can't Spyderco offer this knife with various woods, bone, stag, etc. Or at least Pakkawood and burlap micarta...

Re: Yojimbo 2 (S30V) OXIDIZED

Is this similar to black oxide finish on screws? If so it’s not durable compared to DLC but it certainly doesn’t just rub off.

Looks nice

Re: Can We Please Have a PM2 with CBBL or a Pin and Springs Lock?

Well it is more expensive to make than a pin and springs... Nothing is ever cheaper than injection molded plastic and off the shelf parts like coil springs and ball bearings. It's probably of comparable cost to an axis lock since that omega spring has to be fabricated custom for that lock. The axis...

Re: Can We Please Have a PM2 with CBBL or a Pin and Springs Lock?

I think you’re incorrectly assuming the CBBL is expensive to produce. I don’t know for sure but my guess is it isn’t at all. The complicated is injection molded plastic. The spring is a common coil spring. You need a spacer but it can be a pretty simple part to make. So you want an axis lock Spyderc...

I guess we could consider an Afi edge junky performance model? For the purpose of discussion only, what to you would be the ideal thin edge version?

Anything with moderate to thin blade stock. Doesn’t need to be fancy — a Delica would do just fine.
