I was under the impression that the original chinook remains the strongest lock that spyderco has tested. I could be wrong though.

Creative offers some pretty good options, though i have had my Harddrive die. The larger players by Creative are nice because they use a full sized laptop floppy, so its pretty easy to change around the storage size. Purchasing a 20gb limit model, and then swapping in an 80gb harddrive is not very d...

Hey gull wing, im not speaking for green cobra, but i think he meant that HIS question was a bonehead question, but that he was asking it anyway to rule it out as a possibility. as in "sorry if this seems obvious, but, could they be bronze washers that are oxidized?". i only replied to this because ...

Daywalker, i dont know if youve ever seen the simpsons, but i know that im thinking of one episode.

hi, i had the same thing happen with a buck alpha hunter of mine, it passed spinewack but failed occasionally. try holding the handle at a 45 degree angle, with the point down, and stab it into a piece of wood. kind of like an upside down spinewack on just the back of the point, but more of a stabbi...

all i can say is that every time someone buys a powerglide, a gargoyle emerges from the shadows and strangles someone. that has to be the sorriest excuse for a knife ever. i often play around with it before i go out knife shopping to remind myself not to buy blindly again.

hi, welcome to the forums. first off, id say that spydercos cover a wide range of tasks. for example, while the meerkat is razor sharp and has great egronomics, it is not a super strong blade. i can make the lock fail if i press on the spine hard enough. The chinook however is built like a tank, and...

while that may be the way it is in the U.K., it is certainly not like that in America. If you dont like a company, you move on. I believe that this forum is a bit more sinister than you believe.

Sal telling us that there is going to be a warrenty and repair delay isn't all that helpful. Those of us who frequent the forums make up a small percentage of users. Customers deserve good customer service, period. I had a problem with a chinook, sent Mike an email, which he never replied to, and ca...
