Re: Macro & Close-Up Spyderco Pictures

A lovely idea for a thread (necro or otherwise). I love macro knife photos. https://64.media.tumblr.com/8872f629847627a2aa3aa781facdc50e/tumblr_p0wn2vf03i1rsbaybo1_1280.jpg https://64.media.tumblr.com/9b015d7290afd5b0c0ee5f8c778f70c0/tumblr_ovv9017z4e1rsbaybo7_1280.jpg https://64.media.tumblr.com/f0...

Re: What’s Your Favorite Underrated Sleeper Knife?

... Southard, perhaps as an honorable mention since it did get some attention initially but faded away, Spyderco's first flipper and to this day I think the best flipping action of any that they've put out thanks to one of the strongest detents I've ever felt from Spyderco. Not the best slicer but ...

Re: Grilling/Smoking

Crockpot Boston Butt I made last week. Not exactly grill/smoking but it had a really rich flavor to have been so simple to make. https://64.media.tumblr.com/a543e9bbadbafffbd730901633fcebd7/5ac3555e24e8648f-d1/s1280x1920/5a118397444821c9727e8763dbecf985e24f69e2.jpg https://64.media.tumblr.com/d3a54a...

Re: What did you use your Spyderco for last?

Dinner prep with two of my favorite kitchen utensils. Using the catcherman combined with carrying the Spydiechef for the last few weeks really has me craving a new Catcherman in LC200N, FFG with teeth. https://64.media.tumblr.com/83206c329c1ced1a93609fa8bd5ead24/274915e3491c2aef-70/s1280x1920/5bb7cd...

Re: Caly 3.5 Light Weight: Any News?

A serrated 3.5 LW would be a force to be reconned with. It might rival the might Pac Salt.

Re: Will we ever get a FFG hawkbill?

If the Superhawk had a little more curve/hook to it and SE it would be incredible. As it is (was) it really needed more hook, it was almost like a wharncliffe with a negative blade angle. Interesting timing on this topic, I've been playing around with my Spyderhawk a lot lately and to my surprise (...

Re: The Galley-V, where to now?

Does Spyderco offer brown rods for/with the Galley-V sharpener? (I really like the idea of 12” rods for kitchen knives.) Not currently, and I don't know of any specific plans to offer them. As always, however, the best place to express interest in such things is right here... Stay safe, Mike I have...

Re: Will we ever get a FFG hawkbill?

The Superhawk was a terrific knife and had the curve been deeper, I would prefer it to my Spyderhawk. That being said, many of the reverse-s knives have been done in FFG so I don't think the limiting factor is the manufacturing. Sales are unfortunately what tend to drive obscure and unconventional ...

I have to say, this is quite a good looking knife. I originally thought I'd be swapping the scales but now I'm not so sure.
The Cru-burgular looks great. I hope I can pick one of these up in the future.

Re: Working wharncliffe

Based on your criteria, I would also suggest a Salt Warncliffe. Any Salt would likely serve your needs well, but something SE for certain. Welcome to the forum btw.

Re: The strongest folding knife available...

I tried a few Striders over the years. An SMF in CPM154 with a FFG and a HG Zwear SNG. The later is the only one I really liked.
The edge geometry is terrific for rope and carving, etc. but slicing cardboard is not it's strong suit.

Re: C-60 Ayoob Campaign: No I Won't Shut Up

Let's really just keep this one simple and make it like the last sprint, but in a different color so as to not duplicate the previous sprint. Let's also avoid Unicorn steels and too thin blades that defeat one of the major design points that Mas put in to his design for a reason. If you want a util...

Dang, that's not bad. Unfortunately, it's a bit out of my budget right now.

How about a Baby Horn in this combo?
This is an excellent suggestion for an exclusive.
