Re: Forum knife 2020 - model poll

I am biased since I love the ukpk. Perhaps it is time for a wharncliffe ukpk. How about in k390?
Would satisfy those looking for: wharncliffe, non-locking, awesome steel, relatively affordable.

I have a Franken para3 lw maxamet. It is absolutely wonderful. And it it were released from Golden, I would get a couple more.

Re: Are you done with 2019, Spydie wise? What do you wish for in 2020?

Forgot the 2020 wish part:

1) swayback
2) mini-kapara
3) DFly in k390
4) how about a Dfly Wharncliffe in K390?
5) Para3 LW - k390 or Rex45. These two steels might push this to the top of the list.

Re: Tell us about your Spyderco Knife of the Year 2019

Did you receive your Spyderco Province? I did! Unfortunately, my vote is still for the Waterway. The Province is really well designed and made. I love 4v, and it fits the knife perfectly. Nothing but respect for Sanders/Ankerson. It has nothing to do with the Province itself - outside of the kitche...

How about a Franken-Return? I like the Wayne Goddard design, but I want the micarta from the first editions and the full-flat grind and Boye dent of the later models.
This would be my dream. At least we know two would get sold :D

I think I'd have to go with the Province as my top new knife this year.
I was going to vote waterway, then quite a few votes for the province got me thinking. Have one inbound finally so we shall see.
On the folder side, the para3 lw is really well done.

Re: What models would you like to see with the side button compression lock like the Smock

It would be nice for the knives that have minimal cut outs to access the compression lock. Like the ikuchi. Sliverax. Maybe lil native.

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...
