Re: Fish: What's Everyone's Favorite? Salt or Fresh Water?

I fish all the time in Florida (years ago commercial fished offshore). Inshore for me it's hard to beat flounder or a nice whiting caught in the surf. Both are very tasty. I often bake flounder fillets with crab stuffing. mm mmm good. Catch and fillet a LOT of specks (crappie). Fried speck fillets d...

Re: You can run any model you want in LC200N. Which do you choose?

I'm loving the LC, hoping we see it in many more of the models. The lightweight Caly 3.5 or police model would do it for me. If there was a lightweight Millie version that would also work. While we're at it, a pe Catcherman would also be nice.

Re: Micro Bevel Matter?

I gotten to where I don't often use a micro bevel. Pretty much gone to the straight 30 degree inclusive and stopping around 400 to 600 grit. There are exceptions with some knives, but this keeps sharpening and maintenance simple. All my knives are kept sharp.

Has it been determined what steel will be used in the 3.5 lightweight? Would love to see the LC.

Re: If you could only have TWO Spyders...?

I think I'd go with my Stretch in peelply cf and zdp189, and something significantly smaller and lighter like a FRN Dragonfly. I remember when KSF had the CF Stretch's, agree a great knife. For a long time the Sprig and Caly 3.5 would have been my choices. The Waterway has dethroned the Sprig (both...

Re: LC200N Aqua Salt Remake: Who would be interested?

Love the handle on the Aqua Salt. A thin, ffg blade would be enticing.... however Bloke already said it.

Re: Would anyone else have interest in a Spyderco fillet knife?

I've been hoping for a dedicated fillet knife from Spyderco for years. 6 1/2 to 7 inch blade with thin stock and not too much flex. Would buy several for gifts if lines and blade geometry were right. One of Phil's designs would definitely work for me. Bring it on.

Re: Translucent Venom Green LC200N Manix Salt?

If the Manix was a back lock variety I would buy it. Not sure how the internals on a "salt" variety Manix would hold up around saltwater. Rather see a Police or Millie with LC. Toxic green would be great.

Re: What is your favorite fruit?

Hard to say which is a "favorite." I have many varieties of citrus in the yard. Page orange. ponkan, and a fully tree ripe temple are all excellent. Hard to choose between those. Tree ripened mango's are also a favorite. Like peaches good ones are not often found in the store. So many varieties and ...

Caly 3.5 (most often) others in no particular order

Ikuchi, before this would have been some version of the Sage. Have other non-Spydies on the list but didn't include those.

Re: A reminder to be thankful, life is tough.

Losing family and friends is tough. Sorry for your loss. A good reminder that if we get up in the morning we should be very Thankful. None of us are guaranteed another breath. My grandmother used to say that we should love like there is no tomorrow...because there may not be.

I'd be in for one of these, or the Calypso or Caly 3.5 or Police in LC. Whichever happens first. :spyder:

Re: Of all your Spyderco knives, which gives the best, smoothest cut?

In small blades the K09 does it for me. I've sliced, diced, and filleted many gallons of fruit with mine....a scalpel. In larger blades, the Chokwe, or JD Smith both give smooooooth cuts, as does the ZDP Stretch when really sharp.

I'd be all over this as well. An easy to carry slicer, with great corrosion resistance. Would buy two immediately. :D
