Re: Completely Forgotten Spyderco Models: Your Favorites?

Many of the ones I enjoy are mentioned here. One that I have come to like and use a lot is the Junior. I have been carrying it on overnight bike rides. It works great for food and is light in the pocket. Grabbed this pic from GIS. Mine is not nearly as nice looking any more. https://i.ytimg.com/vi/n...

Re: rust on cts-xhp

The only time I noticed XHP rust was when I went into the Atlantic ocean with my Chap LW in my pocket.

It cleaned off easy enough but it definitely rusted.

Re: it was bound to happen.

I've had and lost two of them.

While I love the little knife, the size and lack of clip really help me lose them.

Re: Your TWO To Return In 2020

I would really like to see a HAP40 Caly 3.5 with the same green handle as the 3 inch version.

Other than that, either a JD Smith with a hollow ground blade or a Rock Lobster with a contoured handle would both make me happy.

Re: Super Blue and patinas

I don't have the Calypso Jr, but I do have a few of the older super blue knives. Just use it and it will patina. There is no need to seek out any special foods.

Re: The Spyderco Rescue Designer? History?

Very nice collections.

There was also an orange handle rescue version of UKPK. I had one but lost it.

Re: Caly 3/3.5 interest Poll

Always fond of a Caly so I would say yes to both a 3 and 3.5. Not a big fan of bolsters.

I am not a huge XHP fan but it wouldn't preclude me from buying the knife.

Re: Anything that can replace Chaparral?

Not as thin as the FRN Chaparral, but the urban is a fantastic office knife (if you can do without a lock).

The 52100 version is close enough in performance. Grab one of them.

Re: Choose my knife (or my fate) for 4 days!

I voted Endura. I just did a 5 day, 350 mile bike camping trip and the only knife I took was a HAP40 Delica. It was plenty of knife for anything I needed to do. I believe it. Pacific Salts have been with me for over 3,000 miles of bike camping and they were more than enough. Even carried a PE versi...

Re: Unpopular Blade Steels That You Like?

ZDP-189

I really enjoy my SE Endura in ZDP-189. It can be chippy and a pain to sharpen, but gets wicked sharp and holds the edge well. I know there are more suitable steels for SE, but this does everything I need of it.

Re: Chaparral FRN CQI

Carrying the Chaparral for about two weeks off and on. It's great. I only have one small nitpick. The honeycomb FRN is very grippy and almost sharp, like fish scales. I especially notice it when I put my hand in and out of my pocket. Will the scales soften up over time? Maybe my hands are too sensi...

Re: Factory edge poll

Voted No. It's been a couple years since I purchased a knife.

Everything I have been carrying is well used and sharpened. I thinned most of the edges in the past, but I have been lazy and really only maintain with the sharpmaker anymore.
