Re: Manix Observations (C95 vs XL)

I said it in the other thread, but I would love to get a new c95 manix. Really like backlocks. And keep the blade stock thick. Agree on the blade thickness - Vivi's suggested mod was 1mm less width (across the blade), not thinner stock. He already made the case for the cutting ability of the origin...

Re: Why the lack of Elmax options -- are any on the horizon?

No interest in elmax. It is a nice, mid-tier stainless, but there are better performers that are already available.

Re: C95 Manix Sprint

Yes, and just as you described. OD green sounds great - 4V would be my preference. Greatly prefer backlock to BB lock (my fingers just do not like that lock). Do you have a photo of one in hand (your hand). The Vivi handshot is how I judge handle size because you have posted so many knife-in-hand s...

Re: What number of Spydercos are in your active rotation?

Not really a rotation... PM3 at work (maxamet) and Mili (Cruwear) and Shaman (Cruwear or S90V) at home / in the field.

Re: Military 2. What exactly is going on?

I agree that the handle details on the Military are important to its overall ergonomic excellence. I like the PM2 and in some ways it fits my hands better. I have small hands and always thought the Mili would be too big... until I tried one. The choil and groove make it work, even in winter with he...

Re: Compression Lock Military 2 Steel Poll

3V ONLY if it can be the CPK delta HT, which is probably proprietary to CPK.
So I voted for cruwear, a very well-balanced steel with all the toughness a blade shaped like a Mili needs.
4V would be my second choice.

Re: Military 2. What exactly is going on?

Agree on the steel - let's skip s30V and go for the in-demand, sales-driving steels (see, it's a win-win for ELUs and Spyderco :)). I am less concerned about scales, as long as it is G10, micarta, or CF (just not ti).

Re: Anyone else hoping for a BBS exclusive Military in k390?

I am hoping for a Military in K390. Not for a BBS exclusive. Are the Spyderco K390 rights somewhat tied to BBS? The Urban, Police and Mule weren't. I think they're the only ones doing sprints of it for now. I'd like to see some more models use the steel, particularly some fixed blades. Either Perri...

A 4V or Van4e Military would definitely get my attention! More Cruwear is always good too.

Re: Sal the Micarta Man - Shaman flavors poll

Either handle color and Cruwear for the unmet demand + 4V because it is awesome and even fewer of those were available.

Re: Shaman Cru-Wear Sprint Run release ?

I got lucky and got one from the pre-order list at Knifeworks right after the original advanced shipment sold out - also had one in the cart and did not complete the purchase fast enough, but happened to be in the right place at the right time for the next few. Like many of you I wanted this version...
