Re: Sharpmaker?

I would make sure that what you're feeling as "sharp" isn't just burr formation. Using the same amount of pressure on the corners will result in more force applied to the edge and it's much easier to create a burr using too much force, especially compared to using the flats.

Re: Pendant knife

Didn't Santa Fe stoneworks do dressed up Bugs? Yes, and they still may. Of course theirs only feature overlays on a regular SS Bug, so not quite what Doc Dan is after either in terms of steel or handle. OTOH, not sure how practical an unlined G10 handle would be on a knife that small. Given that th...

Re: Pendant knife

I imagine it would be more expensive than you think and I think the price would deter most people. Especially for a knife the size of the Bug. At $15, I'm ok with the current version. :spyder: An actual Bug I may not use all that much so cost would be a bigger factor but I would definitely pay "ful...

Re: Serrated H-1 vs. Serrated LC200N?

Why corrosion resistant steels seem to do well with serrated/Spyderedges is kind of a mystery of sorts but it does seem that way. I think it has to do with those steels just also being more on the tough side than a steel like ZDP for example. As I've said before though, my priorities with SE are a ...

Re: Bombshell Flash Batch

Not for me but it's pretty cool. I will echo others and say all Spydercos should come with their wire or hourglass clips, I'm really not impressed by one off clip designs and it takes away the ability to swap on custom clips. I really think Spyderco should narrow it down to one hourglass design and ...

Re: Pendant knife

I've asked for upgraded versions of the Bug line for years without much support. I would rather have a nicer Grasshopper than a Ladybug or Manbug. I think LC would be a great steel for it too. Sign me up for all three of them.

Re: What is your dominant hand / forum statistics

I was told I was born a southpaw but raised righty. I can do some things left handed but using a knife isn't one of them.

Re: Serrated H-1 vs. Serrated LC200N?

I can tell you one thing for certain I bent the teeth on my Jumpmaster2, Spatchcocking a turkey cutting through the bones next to the spine. The H1 bent rather than break off. LC200N likely would have broke as would S30V and other harder steels. the H1 serrations were very easy to fix as well. Some...

Probably too early for Sal to know yet, but here's a shameless bump.

I'd bet they sorted that out in testing, the question is whether or not they'll make it public or if someone will have to test it themselves.

Re: Straight Razor from Spyderco

I remember at least one person who had a Salt reground thin and used it to shave with. This idea has been brought up enough times I'm surprised Spyderco hasn't made one yet.

Re: Sprints

I think a possible solution here is to make a system like the collector's club for forum members where pre-orders are literally pre-sales where sprints are paid for up front and then production is based on the total number of pre-sales plus maybe a bit more to cover any possible warranty/replacement...

Re: Serrated H-1 vs. Serrated LC200N?

Aside from EvilD’s thread, there is very little usage data out there at all about serrated lc200n. I can’t help either because I have never done any testing with it. I have a lot of hours experience using and sharpening serrated H1 and I can say fairly accurately how much use I can get out of it be...

Re: CPM SPY27 steel

With it being a proprietary Spyderco steel and its similarities (on paper) to S35VN, I wonder if SPY27 will eventually replace S30V as the "default steel" for many of the most popular models (e.g. Native 5, PM2, Para 3, Manix 2) I suspect that's exactly the goal here. I'd be surprised if they went ...
