Re: S90V for foodprep?

I’ve used a South-fork and a Sprig in the kitchen for several years. I love them for great edge retention. However they both have spots of rust. We don’t machine wash ever, all by hand and we dry afterwards. They both still developed some rust spots.

Re: PRICING

I don’t care for MAP. It makes shopping for knives boring and mundane. But I’m not a vendor, so it doesn’t matter what I think.

Re: Change in price of Spydercos in 2020?

I never could wrap my head around MAP when it went into play with some of the major manufacturers and vendors. But I don’t run a knife business, so what do I know. The market is always the great equalizer. Folks will either stop buying or they will keep on as normal. It is interesting to me when som...

Re: Taxes on online knife purchase

So do these online vendors have to file a tax return in each state they ship to? Or does their home state get all the cheddar? If it’s the home state that gets the tax revenue, then I don’t see use tax going away, since that’s the way my state gets revenue from the deal? I’m confused

Re: Bento Box Customer Service...

It’s bound to happen with policy like BBS has. You gotta admit, they have kind of perfected the online sales thing. No risk, pass it to the manufacturer and customer. Low overhead, higher prices and higher margins than any competitors. I think they have their clientele figured out. Those exclusive r...

Re: Spyderco Embassy is back!

Just got my embassy today. Question to those out there with one. The action on mine feels off to me. When I open it with the button, the action feels extremely gritty and staged. I can audibly hear it go through multiple stages before it fires. If I depress the button slowly, I can see the blade inc...

Re: Para or sage?

Both are great. For edc, I’d pick the sage all day long. Great ergonomics and it’s more non knife person friendly.

Re: price increase?!

Eh, I don’t see this trend changing anytime soon. The way I see it, it just means more killer discontinued deals and discounts in Nov-Dec 2019. That’s about the only time I buy knives anymore. But my decline started during the MAP era. Price increase doesn’t bug me as much as the apple style price t...

Re: Mule Team Scales from Halpern

I’ve got two pair on two of my mules. It’s a great product. I thought I would add the link for those that may not know where to find them. I hope that’s ok? https://www.halperntitanium.com/spyderco-handles/ I chose the textured scales. The only thing I would change, is there is just a small bit of t...

Re: Why all the hoopla over REX45?

I don’t remember for sure, but I think Hap40 isn’t in regular production. So there are probably folks that missed the train. The next train was rex45. That, plus orange G-10.

Re: $300 Taiwan Spyderco?

I think it’s a cool looking blade. I dig many of the collaboration model spydies. I’m looking forward to getting it on closeout when it’s discontinued.

Re: Factory Seconds Sale

It’s loooong and cold. You won’t like it. Don’t go. 😉

Kidding aside, it all depends on when you get there. Some folks get their more than 24 hrs before the doors open. If you get there the day of, the wait can be 4+ hrs to get in. Just depends.

Would love to see CTS-XHP on it. But I realize that’s highly unlikely.

Re: What would make you buy more Spyderco fixed blades?

I’m a big fan of Spyderco fixed blades. I’ll most likely buy a few of them no matter what. I think I have just as many Spyderco fixed blades as I do their folders. Guess I’m one of the odd ones. I loved the original Temperance and have enjoyed making handles for my mule blades. Very unique and creat...
