Re: Compression Lock Military 2 Steel Poll

Fully admitting and owning my OCD, I'd like the Millie 2 to come out first in S30V in both Black and Digicam to match the PM2 and P3, then have a limited run of K390 with Ranger Green G10, again to match the PM2 and P3.

Re: Military 2. What exactly is going on?

I have a Compression lock prototype. sal Sal, I can't tell you how happy this makes me. I've been a Spyderco enthusiast for the better part of 10 years now and I've wanted a compression lock Military since the beginning. I feel like S30V would make the most sense for the base models, to fit right i...

Re: Straight Spine Stretch

Concerning "cutting edge profile being quite similar in PM 2 and Stretch": I may disagree. While the Stretch has a very long perfectly straight section in the edge before rising to a good amount of belly, the PM 2 has a rather contnious curve in the edge from the beginning to the tip. W"hen cutting...

Re: Straight Spine Stretch

The Stretch 2 (well, not 2; just Stretch, but we used to call it the Stretch 2 before the new Stretch 2 came out) in ZDP-189 and British Ruching Green FRN was my first Spyderco, and to this day one of my favorites. It really is quite similar to the PM2 in ergonomics, blade length, and cutting edge p...

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

...I know plenty will disagree solely on the fact that they dislike BBS, but feel free to share other disagreements as well. I'm not interested in BBS anything.

Re: K390 & Corrosion

I wouldn't worry about it too much, just carry and use it. The only time I would even think about it is if I was going to be around salt water a lot. K390 won't corrode THAT easy...

K390 & Corrosion

Hi all, Long hiatus from the knife game, but I'm back in with a K390 PM2 from BBS (and now a Para3 on the way). It's a fantastic knife, and I couldn't be happier. I've carried knives in VG-10, ZDP-189, and S30V (ok and cheap stuff), never a tool steel. I know that K390 is a powdered tool steel, and ...

Re: New Knife....What's in the box?

The pattern I see is that most regular production models do not come with paperwork, but most sprints do. There are exceptions. This. My Stretch2 and PM2 were the only ones to come with paperwork, I believe. The Matriarch2 came with a warning about not using it for EDC. That's odd, my matriarch 2 c...

Re: Sal's Casual Bombshell Thread

^ yeah probably following the theme. Gotta wonder how well received a LW Millie or Manix XL would be though... Yea, those might be a little big. Then again, the Endura isn't THAT much smaller than the Military, and it does really well as a lightweight. I'd just be stoked to have a lighter, slimmer,...

Re: Any chance of sprint run Standard?

As far as I know, the Spyderco Standard evolved into the Delica. I would bet that most people would see the modern Delica 4, which has seen generation after generation of improvements, to be superior to the old Standard, making it unlikely that we'd see a Standard sprint run. That said, they did bri...

I think it's cool that you're coming up with a solution for your customers, making modding more accessible. That said, I wouldn't personally add this to my PM2.

You have to do something similar for someone else, i.e., something you enjoy and something they want/need and would not enjoy doing.
