Re: Reveal 4 Live!

It occurs to me to ask: What is the most sprint runs that Spyderco has offered in a year? My foggy impression is 5 sprint runs has marked a pretty good year.

I ask because this Reveal announces 10, all Golden-made. Will the remaining two Reveals do the same?!

Re: Reveal 4 Live!

Be still my beating heart!

I thought this year would be for backfilling disco'd Spydies, Evidently not.

SPY27, S45VN, Rex45.

Quite a Reveal, and a testament to the idea behind it. I tip my hat to whoever came up with the idea.

Re: Spyderco "niche" and/or hardly known knives

The disco’d Breeden Captain (https://www.spyderco.com/catalog/detail ... roduct=236) seems pretty obscure.

I might have grabbed one had it appeared after I’d corralled the more iconic models.

If this year’s offerings don’t bowl me over (as did last year’s), I just might go hunting for one.

Re: Best Edge Performance Steel between these choices?

If you haven't any experience with using the specific steels in Shawn's poll, you really shouldn't be posting or voting in this thread. Such is my thinking. I just got my first Maxamet last week and haven’t used my Rex45 and Cruwear enough to compare. All I know is I love K390. I hardly qualify for...

Re: Design details that are deal breakers

If a blade’s cutting edge (rather than its ricasso) can drop onto my handle-clinging index finger when I’ve released its lock and flick the blade toward closure, I will not again buy a knife like it. I refer in particular to the Caribbean and Caly 3.5, much as I otherwise admire them. Neither’s blad...

Re: Sal's Casual Bombshell Thread

Guy, this is NOT the place to converse with each other about what Sal has said. It has become tedious to find what’s new. Weird title for the thread, then.

Re: New pm2 addict... help needed....

Shamans and Manix2s are certainly heavy-duty folders and I love ‘em a bunch, so much so that I have a bunch. But let’s not get carried away. Folders should always be applied cautiously. Doing so happens to keep the PM2 in the game. That you already have several PM2s suggests you probably won’t stop ...

Re: 2020 Spyderco Product Guide

I love to see Spyderco continue to do what brung them.

Did the modified drop-point UKPK just make an unannounced reappearance?

I’m a tad disappointed the Lil’ Native slipjoint is not included, but we do have Reveals yet to come.

Re: Millies and PM2 upcoming in 2020?

Now that I have a Maxamet PM2 about to join a satisfying variety of others, I’m focusing my hope exclusively on new Millies, including the 2. But I haven’t a clue what’s coming.

Re: Philosophy of locks

“Very” for me, but only if there is a lock to form a dependence/habits on. Any Spyderco lock will do, though I prefer midlocks (especially Golden ones) and compression locks. With a slipjoint, I don’t look for something not there. I know beforehand never to put uncontrolled downward pressure on the ...

Well the good news is Sal said 99% of the prices are staying the same.
I missed Sal saying this. Can you cite the post?

Thanks. I hope we all take note with a fair amount of awe.
