Re: 2020 Seconds Sale - BREAKING NEWS

I've missed everything I've tried to get so far. I'm ok with that and am happy that Spyderco put the seconds sale online.

I am disappointed in the bots and wish there was a solution to them.

Re: FRN/Lightweights: I just can’t get into them

I can’t speak for anyone else but I’m the exact opposite. FRN is my favorite with FRCP coming in second. I prefer light weight knives and haven’t broken FRN in 18 years of using it so far. Now specifically on the Para 3 lightweight I’m not a huge fan. Something about it’s balance point with the shor...

Re: Anyone else love BD1N?

I'm going to be a dissenter here. I was going to make a separate post about BD1N and my experience so far. On the plus side it takes a nice edge quickly and seems to hold up well. Where it goes wrong for me is when I am cutting three ply sisal rope and seatbelt strap. It slides along without biting,...

Re: ZDP-189 - Overrated or Super Steel?

I’ve carried and used ZDP-189 working outside during the hot, humid summers here in southeastern NC. I’ve had some light speckling and maybe a slight patina. I sweat pretty profusely in the heat and for comparison I treated my super blue endura the same way as my zdp and it has slight pitting. As fa...

Re: CPM SPY27 steel

This is something I’ve hoped for. Mainly in the Manix LW. While I’ve enjoyed my S90v CS sprint and tried to like the S110v model I never did care for BD1 and don’t like BD1N that much. Something relatively easy to sharpen and with decent edge holding appeals to me. Strange that you don’t like BD1N ...

Re: Police 4 Lightweight Observations

Vivi, You're review got me off the fence to buy one. I've always wanted a Police but the G-10 or stainless is just not my thing. I've carried this one for the past three weeks everyday at work. I usually carry something a little smaller when I go out, just so I don't attract too much attention if I ...

Re: Zdp-189 myths and truths

I initially had a hard time sharpening ZDP-189 with my sharpmaker. I can't remember who posted it but I found a thread on this forum about sharpening ZDP-189. One poster suggested using a light touch on the medium stones. I started doing that and was able to get a hair popping edge within a few minu...

Re: Manix 2 lightweight choices or ?

The S90v version from CS is the one I would hold out for. I have the original pinned BD1, S110v and the CS one. They're my favorite Spyderco's but I do wish we could get a few more versions in other steels. S90v takes a toothy edge and holds it for a long time. It's hard for me to get S110v to do th...

Pelagic I'm about three hours south of you northwest of Wilmington. Watching it closely. Florence was enough last year. Been through all of them that hit Cape Fear since Fran. I'm 20 miles inland so we get to miss the surge but not the flooding. It's getting to be way more a way of life than I'd lik...

Re: A plea to Spyderco:

I like my small knives to have thin blade stock. With larger blades(taller), they can have thicker stock and end up plenty thin down by the edge. How about a Baby Horn thinned to the max? I would love to see how thin LC200N can go, without becoming too unstable. That would be fantastic! Baby Horn A...

Re: A plea to Spyderco:

I know this has been discussed many times before, but I feel compelled to pitch it again. For my own personal benefit, but also for what I think would be a shrewd business move, I implore you Spyderco, start grinding your blades thinner behind the edge. Cementing Spyderco's place in the market as t...

Re: Are you a collector?

I have way too many but all are users minus a few that I keep in places for emergency use only. Each vehicle has a Byrd rescue in the console and in my truck there is a new Endura 4 in case I forget my edc that morning. I also have an Atlantic salt on my pfd that I've never used. I try almost all of...

Re: Best Spydie for kayaking and canoeing...

I keep an Atlantic salt se on my pfd and often a Salt 2 se in my pocket. I never use the Atlantic, it's there for emergencies only.

Just bought a Native Salt PE and it will probably replace or compliment the Salt 2.

Re: Ever regretted purchasing a Spyderco model or no?

Not a model really, only the steel in that model. I bought the original Manix 2 LW in BD1 and never liked the steel. Love the knife. I have models in S90v and S110v and use them the most of any knives I own. I can get BD1 Sharp but never as toothy as I like for cutting rope or strap. I recently boug...

Re: M390 Delica Blue FRN Bento Box Shop Exclusive

I ordered one. Normally more of an Endura fan but as I missed the S30V Delica variants and this is close I had to pull the trigger. I'm hoping for more like this. Don't mind paying the premium or the shipping for other steels in the FRN series. I think many people are overly critical of the more mas...

Re: Let's Get Serious: G-10 Handles Are Just Hard To Beat For EDC uses

I'm going to have to disagree with the OP. I think FRN is the way to go. Easier to clean, grip in damp or slick situations and less abrasive on pockets as well. I have probably two G-10 spydercos out of over 30. In the work I do my hands may be slick with mud, oil or grease and I don't have the same...
