Re: Favorite Pre-2005 Spyderco Model?

I love your GOLDEN AGE threads, Joe! Even after a few months absence from the forums. A lot of the great Spydies from the past were already mentioned. But two of my top 10 are missing, the Shabaria and the Zowada. The second production variant of the Zowada is probably my most carried knife of the l...

Re: Oldies But Goodies: ATS-34 Spyders

'Though I've retired from knife collecting more than a year ago, it's always nice to come back to the forums from time to time and see that the good old classics are not forgotten. I remember very well how long I had been hunting for the first production variant with the ATS-34 of the JD Smith witho...

Re: Favorite Big Spyder Folder?

Judging by the pure quantity I guess the original C55 must be my favorite big Spyder.
Both a user in plain and in halfserrated and two more for the collection. :cool:

Re: Any chance of a Jess Horn throwback model?

Over the years I've been sorely tempted to find out what driver is correct for the C27 clip screws and take one off, with the thought of filling in the holes. Fear of finding the same type mutilation of the bolster found under the Kopa's clip has kept me from doing it. :o Hi Paul, at least my sampl...

Re: Spyderedged EDCs: Your Pick? And Why?

I prefer the larger, full sized original C-54 big Calypso in SE over the Junior model. The longer blade assisted by the full flat grind makes it a super Spyderedged all purpose blade IMO. Oh but don't get me wrong because I've had a Spyderedged Caly Jr before and they are a little buzz saw of a bla...

Been away for a while, guys. ;) I'm not the biggest fan of the Serrated Edge, the only Spydies with SE that I carry occasionally are the Calypso jr, the Almite Ayoob and the blue Dodo. http://araneomorphae.de/images/forumpic/CalypsoJrs-1.jpg http://araneomorphae.de/images/forumpic/Ayoob-2.jpg http:/...

Re: UKPK 2004 backspring color?

If my memory serves me right, the biggest challenge while designing the UKPK was the material of the backspring. CPM-S30V is pretty hard stuff and it was difficult to find the right material. Almost all UKPKs of the first production year, that I have ever seen, had this discoloration in various degr...

Re: Help identifying a German town please

Marcus, you are awesome! Thank you. I've been to Germany twice, and this place looks wonderful. You're welcome. It was pure coincidence, I had been there five years ago when we made a ten-day bicycle tour in Bavaria. It's a wonderful place and the countryside in general is wonderful, too, in this p...

Re: Help identifying a German town please

It's the Malerwinkelhaus, a museum located in Marktbreit. Marktbreit is a small town in Bavaria.
The street is the Bachgasse, the museum has the number 2.

Re: M390?

You may ask the users of the Southard.
The CTS-204p is the same as M390, it's just the trade name used by Carpenter.
M390 ist the trade name used by Böhler-Uddeholm.

Re: History & Info on the DYAD Model

But a Marine grade DYAD like H-1 or LC200N just makes perfect sense and the latter makes even more sense with the success that they've had with the TUSK model which is geared for marine use and harsh environments. You've nailed it, Joe! Any Dyad with a H-1 steel would be awesome. I'm not entirely c...

Re: History & Info on the DYAD Model

Well "Marcus" I'm just a bit surprised to hear that you didn't like ATS-55 blade steel because I've certainly kept my share of ATS-55 blades from the late 90s/early 2000s. Joe, my friend, don't get me wrong. The ATS-55 is an excellent steel and AFAIR it was made exclusively for Spyderco by Hitachi ...

Re: History & Info on the DYAD Model

I like the C44 a lot, but the C39 and the C112 are both too small for me. The Dyad is one of my most used Spydies. I've polished the blades last year, so they look like new. The Micarta has developed some nice patina and character over the years. Wish they had made the Dyad with a different steel, t...
