Re: Spyderco Models From 2010 & Earlier That You Wish To Return

Kris. That's a very interesting request VASH :cool: That KRIS model over the years has had one of the most enduring cult followings of about any the Spyderco "specialty" models. I regret that I passed on two trades where I could have had one of those. It's one of the very few from that period that ...

Re: Large slipjoint Spydie, anyone?

Not sure if anyone mentioned the C131. Terzuola Slipit is listed just a tad longer blade length than the PITS. For the OP I think the aftermarket price may be prohibitive, but I threw it in there anyway.

Re: 2020 Spyderco Product Guide

The Galley “V” is an old product from former years and long time out of production. As I saw it in the PDF I really was happy to see it again and I was gutted about the fact it wasn't in the price list. Considering that the galley V is functionally the exact same sharpener as the gauntlet at a diff...

Re: BladeHQ M4 Jade Dodo

Ergos? I've read some accounts of the great ergos of the Dodo allowing for a full 4 finger grip. I'm wondering what size hands it's best suited for. With those grooves I can't imagine that it fits any hand size. So for those of you who have one or have handled one - comfortable for your hand and wh...

Re: Bob Lum info #'d C46PS...new guy ;)

I've seen some of the oldest models with collector numbers. I'm pretty sure some knives were just done in numbered runs, but i don't think it predates the collector club. There was a guy on facebook selling an entire collection from one collector that included many of the pre C-SKU experimental kniv...

Re: Who wants a Dodo?

I won't say no to any SE Dodo unless the price is beyond the stratosphere :rolleyes: . I think that M-4 is an excellent steel choice but if they do another Spyderedged version I would prefer it to be made with XHP instead. It's been proven that XHP is a good steel for serrated edges. I can't think ...

Re: Does it bother anyone else...?

This thread is a little mind-blowing. I really didn't think there was such a debate on what a front flipper is. To me, it's very simple. If a Smock/Ikuchi is called a front flipper, than how would you make the distinction between those and a knife that you flip from the "front front"? :confused: Wo...

Re: Does it bother anyone else...?

To me, your "back" and "front" labels should read "side" and "side". Or maybe "front" and "front". "Front" would be the part away from the clip. "Back" would be the part near the clip. The red line should be drawn parallel to the line you've drawn. The "front" flipper is to distinguish it from a "s...

Re: A Spyderco OTF?

It's been brought up a few times and, IIRC, there's never been any response from Spyderco one way or another. I'd be up for one, but only if it was D/A, D/E and PE. well now that Sal has shown a tiny light at the end of the tunnel, I'll second Deacons Double Action Double Edge but I'd like to compl...

Re: Collectors numbers?

I have a friend that I totally made into a spydie addict.

Re: Does it bother anyone else...?

Life is way too short and complicated to worry about such things. Whos worried? I just like consistency and I feel that description is completely inconsistent with all other knives I've seen called front flippers. Probably because IT ISN'T ON THE FRONT. Depends on how you hold the knife and what yo...

Does it bother anyone else...?

...that the flipper on the Smock has been dubbed a "front flipper" when it is basically in the same position as every other flipper tab Spyderco has produced. I assume it has stemmed from the design looking so similar to a lot of front flippers in that the flipper is an exposed section of the tang. ...

A Para 3 by any other name is still a Para 3. (Apologies to M Stein)
Or (sorry couldn't help interjecting my version to fit the original quote a bit better)

A Para 3 by any other name would cut as deep.

Re: No POLICE

There is the Rookie, pretty much a 'lil police. You can get stainless version, though discontinued, for not too crazy a price. If you are looking for more length that endura is the closest thing. Buffing as mentioned above might give you what you are looking for easiest though.
