Re: Micarta Chaparral

Much as I love Micarta, I don't think the Chaparral is the best vehicle for it. Micarta looks best when it's thick enough to be at least a bit rounded so the layers are visible. Agree with this - the radius makes all the difference in look and feel, and may be difficult to achieve in such a thin sc...

Re: CRUWEAR for all!

I just finished posting in the "3 favorite steels" thread - #1 was s110v, #3 was ZDP. Chuckled when I read OP. Just shows you there are very different tastes, wants, and needs. And I agree with above - room in the line-up to make everyone happy. That is one of the joys of Spyderco :spyder: :cool:

Re: So what's your top 3 favorite steels? and why?

No easy answer for me. I love the variety. Most carried/favorite #1- s110v. Haven't seen this listed much, but is has great corrosion resistance and just cuts forever. 2) maxamet. This is a favorite for rational and irrational reasons. Love the high hardness, love the edge, love the lack of any disc...

Re: Rusty Waterway - Your Thoughts

What I’d personally like to see is an “Aficionado” version with 2mm - 2.5mm blade stock and nothing over about 0.008” BTE of all the steels mentioned above and more. ;) I love this idea. Flash batch aficionado version. Thin grind with a steel that takes high edge angles. Call it the cutaway :D :spy...

Re: S110V Para3 LW?

My two most carried Para3's are s110v and Maxamet - both of which come in Native/Manix LW versions. I am very hopeful these will be added to the Para3 LW line-up. Especially in their respective colors (dark blue and grey)!

Re: Micarta Putman scales at DLT

Oh btw, the micarta scales are a bit thicker than the stock scales on both knives, but not by much. Here are comparison pics on the Smock. https://i.imgur.com/Stcov0h.jpg Got mine today as well. I had an mxg clip with the CF scales - after swapping for micarta, the screws would not engage the liner...

Re: Micarta Putman scales at DLT

https://i.imgur.com/N7eTplt.jpg Oh wow, those do look good! Much better in your pics than in the product ad pics. They looked kinda bulky there, I thought, but not at all in your pics. The screws look countersunk - so it looks like the scales may add some thickness? On my smock with stock scales (f...

Re: Micarta Putman scales at DLT

I just made my first scales out of micarta today. Man, it’s nasty stinky stuff. Looking good! I remember a discussion I had with a custom knife maker a couple years back. He charged more for green micarta than brown micarta or even CF. He said it was harder to work with, more wear on belts, and mor...

Edit - Just want to say that I like this knife so much more with the LW scales...
And I really liked the Para3 to begin with.

Re: Micarta Putman scales at DLT

I don't like the look of the micarta on the smock. Same here, just looked. The CF scales that come with it are much better imo. Guess my tastes are not too popular. :( I have no issues with CF -including laminate. And the Taichung CF looks really good. But for some reason, none of these knives has ...

I hope the micarta shaman sells well, and micarta becomes a new standard option. Benchmade recently had a limited edition with python micarta - and chatter is that many people bought that one just for the micarta scales.
