Im in a similar situation. Its not that I cant spend the money on the big boys... its just that im not a collector and cant justify the cost. So like you, I have a few simple pieces and I too keep going back to the simple Delica. It is perhaps the perfect EDC knife for me. I work in an office enviro...

I live in the US and still love carrying my UKPK. Atlanta has quirky knife laws. I live and spend most of my time outside of Atlanta, but for about another week I work inside the perimeter. So I got a UKPK just to be safe. The chances of the laws being used against you in the US are RARE, but why ta...

There are many reasons...but the biggest is how people are becoming more and more dependent on things being done for them. The old saying used to be "hey Grandpa, are you carrying your knife" and Grandpa would reply "Well of course i am, i have my pants on". A knife was a tool that you never left h...

AWESOME! Although I know I will take flack for this... I sure love the stock steel on the Byrds right now. My knowledge of steel types is pretty limited. I guess Im also not that picky. Here is what I know. My Byrds (and my Tenacious) will get hair popping sharp using my sharp maker and they will ho...

Dont get me wrong. I would love to have some of the higher end Spydercos... but I just cant justify the cost... So the standard Spydercos (Endura, Delica, UKPK, Native) and the Byrd line all get my vote. More expensive does not necessarily mean better. My Byrds have never let me down. At all.. not o...

LOL I thought about the two knife thing. I figure the Meadowlark in SS and my delica 4 ought to be about the same as the Cara Car in steel LOL.

The other day I was using my Endura to pry out nails from some old timber. Earlier in the day I used it to jack up my pickup truck and then it just failed... POS!...

I have 3 Byrds. I love them! to me they feel all Spyderco! :) Great quality at a great price. Hard to beat em... Im not sure a sub-forum or separate forum would get enough attention. But as EDC knives they should not be dismissed. They are better than lots of the other brands out there! Thats for su...

I love using the wave. Don't see any cons to it really. If I want to pull it out slowly, I slide the knife forward as I draw. Anyways, I use a kydex wave on my endura. Much more reliable than the zipties, since it digs into your pocket more, and I haven't really noticed any damages to my pockets. H...

Well, first, sorry for being argumentative but there's no way you can draw and flick a knife open faster than any "wave" method...not even Mike Janich is that fast. Wave style opening methods start deploying the blade before it's even out of your pocket all the way, long before you could position y...
