Re: Spyderco for firefighter

The Salt line is, on my opinion, the ultimate work knife series Spyderco produces. That's why I carry a Salt 2. If you don't know what you may need your knife for then the salt line is what you need. I understand splinter picker knives with very thin behind the edge stats are funnier to use in a con...

Re: Which Spyderco for prying with tip?

Szabo folder. Pretty stout all around. A little off topic but I've used the spyder hole on a closed knife to help pry out a nail before. Just got the head of the nail onto the edge of the spyderhole and rocked it a few times. Manix 2 to be exact. It wasn't a big nail either but it worked. I use the...

Re: Which Spyderco for prying with tip?

Prying with knives isn't always an abuse, some people don't get this. There are small things that can't even be pryed with normal prying bars or similar tools... that's when a butter knife, screwdriver or pocket knife steps in. I've done it and never damaged a knife because of that. On the other han...

Re: Your toughest Spyderco

I would think about the overall construction of the knife before I focus too much on steel. Just because a knife has a well known tough steel doesn't mean the KNIFE will be tougher overall than another model. Agree with all your points ... the reason why I picked the Native over Chinook (1 and 4), ...

I don’t care for the “police” name at all. Not particularly fond of the “military” name, but since the para military 2 and para 3 seem to get shortened to pm2 and pm3/p3 often I don’t have any negative associations. Urban... I like the knife not the name. I understand why it was so named, but at th...

Re: Is the Bow River sold out?

Since this is regular production it will be available again. My question is, how are the trade sanctions affecting Spyderco? I've wondered the same thing, especially since steel has been a central tariff item. And last time I read the news there was also something with US-EU new tariffs that among ...

Re: Spyderco Sheepsfoot Blades: Likes, Dislikes and Favorite Models?

I can't justify carrying a fully sheepsfoot blade for EDC tasks but the tip on the Salt 2 has served me well in almost 2 years of carry.

Re: KnifeJoy Damascus Delica and Endura

I can't say I'm all that impressed with the DPS 15 blades I have seen... The entire reason for having a pattern welded cladding is the aesthetics and these are just plain ugly to me :( I have one of the foliage green FRN Delicas with this blade material, it looks better than most of the pics I've s...

Must have missed the first post :) I don't.
I didn't miss the post, what I'm saying is that you use all kinds of grips even if briefly. I've certainly grabbed a knife in both handle and blade in all possible ways.

Re: Is this a grip that you use?

I think all of us use that grip while cutting. The thing is, the grip changes while you are working, it is more like a movie and not a picture. It's like asking if you walk in a certain way and put a picture of someone with a raised leg... you don't walk like that but you certainly walk with one foo...

Re: POLL: Choking up on Ricasso or even edge - who does it?

I've said it before and I'll say it again, the ricasso on the Delica, Endura, etc. is the perfect design. It acts like a choil, but isn't one. I love it. It doesn't get hung up on things like choils can. Also, it's the perfect area to drop the blade onto when closing one handed. Lots of room to cho...
