Food prep? ..... David, concerning "food prep": Go for a coconut, if you like... ;)...(not just kidding though, would be interesting indeed...) Hmm I'll see what I can do.

Re: Native chief vs Endura?

Chief without question. The Endura has an awful handle, the opposite of neutral. Same with the Delica and Endela. They are the right design, with the wrong handle. The bad part is, they refuse to fix it, haha. Apparently most people like the handles. I'd imagine average sized hands fit it really we...

Re: yojimbo salt

Hi Guy, Ultimately, if Michael's designs continue to be more popular, and if I had my way, we would eventually add an FRN model. Though we would probably maintain scaled versions. But in reality, we've got Michael working on something else first. sal Exsqueeze me? Come again? Is that the Yojimbo 3 ...

Re: yojimbo salt

I will ALWAYS be willing to pay more for the HW. LW does absolutely nothing for me. Infact, it turns me off. I don't want a compromise, I want a real knife. The Para3 LW has solidified my beliefs. It is a completely compromised knife. It is all the way out of balance and substantially weaker than t...

Re: Changing size comfort zone...

Agreed, much to my surprise! It plays to my preference that no matter the blade length, I’d rather have a whole handle. So some of the blade chops make real good sense. 4-finger grips and legal knives; also in the carving world, a short blade for precision and control still needs a full length hand...

Re: Changing size comfort zone...

The Military really opened up the door to larger folders for me. Once I got used to that size everything else felt small or at least very manageable.

Re: Spyderco Caribbean with black hardware?

I'm sure it has something to do with preventing galvanic corrosion. I'm sure, but after what I put my Caribbean through and how it looked afterwards, I don't see the need. I'm just weird, though. I haven't had a single issue with rust on either of mine, but I'm also not playing in the ocean. For ED...

Re: How are you doing today?

Today I think I might have finally sorted out a 15+ year long issue with the belt on my Ranger. That thing has had squealing issues practically since it was new, and I've replaced the tensioner and belt several times. I'm not even sure what I did this time, I just put an old tensioner back on it and...

I'd be ok with that too, though I'll no doubt mod the tip into a wharnie :D

Re: LC200N / Caribbean SE torture test gauntlet of death

To a very special friend ;) As for the Ulize, the blade shape makes SE less necessary . Infact, it's probably my new favorite blade shape. Truly a beast, fiercely competing with the Caribbean. BLASPHEMY! :eek: I just want to try a recurve like this in full SE. The heel/middle will perform like a ha...

Re: LC200N / Caribbean SE torture test gauntlet of death

It is a magnificent thing, this knife. I am waiting on my blade to come back. A few more months, probably. In it's absence, I have been impressed with the Ulize. But, I miss my Caribbean... Come back from where? I really wish they would have done a SE Ulize. That knife would be a monster in full SE...

Re: SpyderEdge 2020 (A Personal "Challenge")

Allow me to dig up that SE challenge thread for a question : which SE blade would you recommend : the Endura 4 wharncliffe, the Native 5, any other blade ? I've read that some people preferred SE on an FFG blade over a sabre grind, what're your opinions ? Absolutely prefer FFG/SE, it just slices be...

Re: LC200N / Caribbean SE torture test gauntlet of death

As much as I love this thread I wish we had more knives in serrated lc200n and another steel to directly compare. The native 5 is the only one that comes to mind. Yeah it's a bummer I don't have a more direct comparison in H1. I could do all these tests with a Pacific and I guess try to ignore the ...

Considering the blade that's in the rocks glass in the last reveal, I think a Lil' Native Salt back lock has to be coming soon.


I totally forgot about that, it would definitely seem like a waste to make that blade solely for that item.

Seems like I recall Sal saying it was, but I would be all for it especially if they managed to squeeze in more blade into the same size handle.

Re: Lil Native Salt SE

To me, serrations make the most sense in a longer blade, so I'm not too interested in a SE Lil Native. But then, the Lil Native is a smaller knife than I usually like to begin with. Serrations technically make an edge longer by I think something like 30% per inch, so it's a good way to give a small...
