Re: Para 3 vs. Sage 3 Comparison

I've gone with the Sage 5 ... tried the PM3, but the already 'skewed' handle to blade ratio of the PM2 just seems exaggerated on the PM3, IMO ... just seems too "stubby" ... also, the blade profile seems to work well at the PM2 length, but to me something is just "off" when it's scaled down ... I wa...

Re: Massdrop appears to be conforming to MAP

So far this year, I've only bought 2 Spydies, one sprint, and one at 60% off MSRP. I wasn't sure how the MAP pricing would affect my purchases, but I do have to say, it has taken the fun out of the hunt for Spydies. I always enjoyed unexpectedly finding and jumping on a great sale price. Now, with ...

Re: Advantages of VG10 over other premium steels

I am a big fan of VG-10. As others have stated, it feels like a very well-balanced steel to me. I have some older VG-10 Spydercos, and they take and hold an edge just fine, never wished they were anything else. I also like S30V, and while I'm sure there are extremes where S90 or S110 would perform b...

Re: Amsterdam Meetsters

As a spydie-holic and member of the forum I am interested in these discussions, but sadly I doubt the Amsterdam meet is in my future ... a Golden meet, while far more likely is a stretch ... now a North East meet ... or a South East meet ... or an ANY East meet ... THAT I would most definitely do! L...

Re: Lets see your oldest Spydie

The Solo is only a quasi-Spyderco, but it's a few years older than the SS ATS-55 Dragonfly This leads me to a question (no intent to hijack, thought readers of this thread would be best able answer) ... how old are the Solo models? I have a G-10 pushbutton lock Solo (SO05?), and have wondered how o...

Re: Flickability Factor

I flick for fun sometimes (depends on the knife) - but just hard enough to fully engage the lock, it's a game I play … I never buy a knife based on flick-ability … Some knives I never flick, just the ones that "lend" themselves to it … Some might call me old … I've been called worse.
