Re: Spyder Classics: The C-44 Dyad ( the big Dyad)

In a word, "liners". They add weight, they add bulk, they detract from the "carryability" (if that's even a word). Exactly. I had one of the originals. Sold it, and regretted it, so got one of the grey sprints. Was surprised how heavy it was, as I thought the only difference was the G10. For me, th...

Re: What was your 1st Spyderco?

Full spyder-edge endura purchased around the mid-90s from a High St camping store in the UK (so probably paid way over the odds for it). That was back in the days of the white boxes (i.e. before the grey-web boxes and then the current red-black-gold boxes), and I thought it was huge at the time. The...

Re: Rosewood shaman and CITES treaty

However, there are different species that are marketed as rosewood but are actually not related. Woods that share a similar look while being legal and plentiful. A fairly common one is Caribbean Rosewood aka Chechen aka Poisonwood. I would think the product would be using something like this. ^This...

Re: Favorite ( or best IYO ) fixed blade.

If you are interested in the Southfork, but the lack of a leather sheath is the only issue, buy this - http://www.dlttrading.com/upland" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

It will fit it.

Look on the bright side - at least it confirms that the plastic handle is not a weak point in the design.

Why would the last inch of the blade be left unsharpened? That decreases the attractiveness for me.

The Techno is one of VERY few knives that I have two of. The combination of thick blade, thin edge and good blade:handle ratio make it a clear winner.

Who else would like to see a Techno 2 with a 4" blade? (I feel I already have the 3.5" blade niche well covered with the Lionspy and ZT0801).

Exact same thing has happened to me. Even though it didn't involve a knife as expensive or beloved as a PM2, it is still irritating.

I bought two. Will use one, and will keep the other as a back-up as long as I like sufficiently. If I decide to pass on the 2nd knife, I would be confident of getting my money back, but I don't expect it to go for crazy prices due to the availability of the CF model as a regular production item.

Are you confusing blade thickness from edge-to-spine width? I don't think a blade needs to be wide to withstand batonning...my Wildsteer is only 1 1/8 inches wide at the widest part of the blade, but it's also 3/16 thick for almost the entire length of the spine until the tip where there's a swedge...

I looked at the Lionspy at the Blade Show and reached the same conclusion on it also entirely too wide, I think a wide blade makes sense on a hard use folder because it allows for a lot more utility batonning on the spine. Not saying you should plan to baton any folder, but it's nice to know that y...

If the order goes in, does that mean you have definitely been successful? I had everything in my cart ready to go about 20secs after the forum knife popped up, but it then took me about 12min to get past the zip error message.

I've also had problems with spyderco torix screws not fitting regular driver sizes (I'm talking decent quality hex bits, not the cheap allen-key type things), which ended with stripped screws that I couldn't remove. I had to give up on swapping the handle scales between a superhawk and superleaf for...

I was thinking there was no way I would get this as I already have a SR-1, but now I'm wondering whether to buy the Lionspy and cut through the front side of the spyderhole to have a waved version.

If it was a 4" blade with more of a spear point, I wouldn't think twice.

Well, what happened? Are they swappable? I have a Superleaf. Thinking of buying a Superhawk. Would like to know.
