Re: Spyderco's Upcoming New Folder? Stretch Lc200N with FRN Navy Blue Scales?

Ok, thanks guys! The only Golden backlock I have is the Native and it's nice enough, but I don't really notice it as an improvement to the Stretch or Dragonfly backlocks I have. Maybe some are more discerning than myself. :-)

Someone else also mentioned improving the backlock to the same design as the Golden made models have now.
OK, I'll bite: what's the difference between a Golden-made backlock and a Seki-made backlock?

Re: Got a favorite ax? Post ‘em up!

That's interesting "kenneth". I've wondered if there were other ax companies over in Sweden. I would like to know where both companies ( them and Grandfors Bruks") get their steel at for their ax heads? I'm willing to bet that Sandvik is probably thee big steel producer for knives and edged weapons...

Re: Scarcity of CBBL

I like the Manix 2 LW. It's a great 3.5" edc knife in a LW package. The blade shape is nice. The handle could be a bit more neutral for me, but I don't particularly mind it in use. The CBBL is probably my least favorite part of the knife now. It is basically a two-handed closing action for me becaus...

Re: Got a favorite ax? Post ‘em up!

Hey that's a nice looking ax. I take it by the name that it must be a Swedish ax? Or is that a unit that Grandfors Bruks makes? Again I've been told that the one Splitting Maul that Grandfors Bruks makes is a really great tool. However I really want to check out the two mauls that MacLaren put up. ...

Re: The Final (probably) Three, Revised

I have had a Para Military 2 and liked it. For my purposes (and likes) the Para 3 is a “better” knife and since I wanted both a larger knife in the same family it made sense to me to go with the Military. I don’t want the same knife only middle size. From a practical and technological perspective I...

Re: Your Favorite "Obscure" Spyderco model?

Slightly off-topic maybe? I always thought the R and the ATR would be ideal LW models but they were never popular enough I guess. They look great on paper, but I never found them to be that compelling.

Re: Anybody still use CASH?

Nope; never. I used to keep $20 in my wallet for the taco truck, but then I stopped going to the taco truck so often. I had $200 in my wallet from a friend paying back a loan for about a year before I decided I didn't need $200 in my wallet and spent it. I started using Apple Pay when I got a new ph...

Hi Wednesday, I would say a lot of that is Eric. Also two of us Cut a wider arc in design, innovation and quality. We have a few totally new innovations in-the-works.

Re: The Final (probably) Three, Revised

Well explained! :) What would you say will happen to your list when they´ll finally make a PM2 LW? Will it kick the SS Stretch out of number 2? PM2 LW and SS Stretch will maybe have a similar weight and certainly very similar size, but still be quite different (lock, blade stock thickness, "edge pr...

Re: The Final (probably) Three, Revised

I just love the varied responses to this thread. I thought about going back and toting up the number of votes for each type of knife but nah, not gonna do it. So, I’m thinking that I will move my Shempp Bowie to a full blown collector knife because of his special meaning to me and not carry it as a...

Congrats David! When I came back to the forum recently I was happy to see you were still around. It seems few of the regulars from 9 years ago or so are, but they say we come and go.

Re: Japanese steel Seki Sprints?

I don't know all the latest and greatest Japanese steels to recommend, but I will say that I appreciate the tradition of using Japanese steels in Japanese-made Spydercos, and American steels in American-made Spydercos. Then again, I do like the Austrian steel in my American-made Spydercos as well, s...

Re: The Final (probably) Three, Revised

Good question. I feel like this is particularly challenging because I largely have knives for the same use, which is just EDC stuff. I mostly like 3-3.5" blades, and choose between knives mostly if I want a smaller/lighter weight carry for the day. If I had to pick just 3 models from my collection t...

Re: Got first Spyderco, somewhat disappointed...

I got my first Native 5 recently, and in some ways I agree: it was a bit of a disappointment. It isn't quite as smooth to operate as my other Spydercos, and definitely not as "flickable." If you want the smoothest action, and highest flick ability and fidgetability, I'd recommend you pick up a Para ...

I carry my S30V Para 3 more often than my K390 Para 3 now, mostly because of the Micarta scales. If I can't get a Zwear Shaman, I think I'm going t...

This is intriguing. Will it be called the “More than Enuff”?
I vote for a Moranenuff, a Moran clip point on an Enuff handle.

OK, not really, but I had to. :o
