Re: New Byrd knife with a hard to open button

Dear LynneV: Welcome to the Spyderco Forum. If you have arthritis, you might be better served with a lock mechanism that requires less strength to operate. Most byrd knives are back locks, which have strong springs. You might find a linerlock--like the Raven--easier to operate. Stay safe, Mike Hell...

The original Stretch would have peformed well in this regard, I believe.
Some of the Spyderco fixed blades would also work well in this application.

I have a large Sashimi knife in H1 ground that way.

Sal, any chance these are available to us mere mortals?

Re: SE performance is more than simply teeth vs no teeth.

I have seen many ways to sharpen serrations and many tests to "prove" how sharp they are. Serrations are a funny thing and "Real-World-Testing" is still the best test. I've seen serrations sharpened to create exceptional single tooth sharpness, but slicing a piece of paper prove...

Re: Knife Law question regarding Blade Lengths.

Thank you, Joe, Bloke, and others for your help on understanding this. Well, this helps me make my decision. I'm done with knives altogether. From here on out, if I need to cut something, I'm sticking to scissors, except for a basic kitchen knife. My reason: I am so tired and saddened by the constan...

Re: Knife Law question regarding Blade Lengths.

Or if you are in a state that allows you to carry a five inch long blade and under, and your knife is five and a half inches, would that make a difference? Are you asking if violating the law would be a violation of the law or if the law enforcement would care? The reason I am asking is out of curi...

Knife Law question regarding Blade Lengths.

Various places have laws regarding the legal length of the knife blade one carries. In some places, it is anything under 3 inches, elsewhere, 4 inches, and in some places, 5 or more. My question is this: When it comes to legalities, how technical and minute is the law? For example: If you are in a j...

Re: Strange question: What level of expertise would it take to "extend the blade length" on a Spyderco knife?

Yes, but, are there custom-makers who would be able to add more blade material onto a factory-made knife if you sent it to them?

AUS-6 Stainless vs AUS-8 and others?

Nearly all of us on this forum is aware of the Japanese AUS-8 series of stainless steel alloys as used on assorted knives (did Spyderco ever use that, at some point?) made by various companies. It appears to be a very capable blade steel. I have read some old articles and posts by people about AUS-6...

Re: Do you prefer Plain edge, Serrated edge, or both?

I have an important question on this very topic: When it comes to hard use such as batoning and other bushcraft type cutting uses, would a serrated blade be weaker because of the serrations acting as stress points, or not? In other words, would you use a serrated-edge blade for batoning or not?
