Re: Upcoming Shaman Exclusives??

Eric is as sly as his father! Check out his Shaman review (https://youtu.be/xiy8GYzned0) with the “Oh, by the way...” bit in the last minute. I hope there will be more vids like this for other models. Is this his first such one? Seems to be. Anyhoo, the Cruwear Shaman with micarta scales has now mov...

Re: Is weak detente a warranty issue?

Send the thing in. If the blade releases as easily as you describe, I’d bet the mothership will see it as out of spec and fix it.

Re: Factory edge poll

The Police4 I’ve been carrying for the past week has no grind lines, but they may not have been pronounced in the first place.

I have not reprofiled it since getting it over a year ago, as I have been inclined to do with new S30V, ever since having a problem with chips on two factory-edges.

Re: Collectors Club Question?

My Elmax Urban, a British Blades exclusive, came from Country Knives with a CC# 113V. I’d rather not have CC#s. I suppose I’m just the kind of buyer CK banks on: desperate afi who must have a knife now rare and will tolerate MSRP and adornments for the privilege. And, indeed, I’m glad to have this U...

Re: POLL: Who´d like to see a knife along the lines of the Caribbean, but with a BACKLOCK?

Just as I think not every Spydie model should become a Salt, I don’t think every one should feature a lockback, much as I like that lock.

I’m quite content to let Sal and Eric call the shots. I could say more, but won’t...

Bravo, Alistair! I’m still marveling at what a small knife this big knife is. Spyderco has certainly done you proud.

Re: Pacific Salt praise

I think it was this post that began to win me back to my PE Pac Salt. A point of clarification, however. You suggested that thinning your edge and steepening its angle amounted to work-hardening. Subsequent threads have suggested that work-hardening occurs only during production, not by users, and i...

Re: Anyone else interested in a LW Native Chief?

Despite the Police being as long as it is, I've always found them more comfortable in the pocket than a Millie. Flatter, more narrow, and when you reach into your pocket with it clipped your hand rubs against a smooth steel backspacer instead of grinding against jimping. The very narrow butt end me...

Re: Anyone else interested in a LW Native Chief?

Marc, I haven't been following Spyderco for too long so don't know about older examples, but the Endela went straight to FRN with no other version first. Also curious if there are older examples. Imho the Endela HAD to come in FRN, just cause it's part of the "Endura family". One of the defining fe...

Re: Anyone else interested in a LW Native Chief?

Abandoning costly G10 for FRN is, of course, a calculated risk for Spyderco. Molds per model are $30,000; so said The Deacon the other day. I don’t know the rate of sales needed to amortize this investment, let alone turn a profit, but, obviously, the Delica, Endura, and Stretch, among others LWs, c...

About the stop-lock, as distinct from the Parata, I’m not hearing a whole lotta love. So, are there not enough in circulation yet?

Re: So when does this forum start speculating about the upcoming discontinued models???

I don't mind there being lightweight versions of any model. Bring them on. But i hate seeing them flat out replace G10 models, especially those with liners. I fully understand the market's obsession with weight reduction, but it's unfortunate. G10 models have more of a classic and durable look. FRN...

Re: Lil Native just keeps getting better

My Lil’ Native lockback shouted masterpiece the instant I got it in a full grip (with my index finger in the choil). My uses since have shown it to be a tiny workhorse that is far more nimble than the Techno/Techno2. I had no expectation of the Lil’ Native being slicy like the Chaparral, so BTE metr...
