Re: First Impressions of SPY27 Steel

If it seems that the steel itself feels lighter could it possibly be due to a thinner grind resulting in less mass overall?

How long has it been since a new millie was released?
REX 45 is the last Millie run that I recall.

Re: What's your Favorite Rex Sprint Run?

Love the G10 Native 5 REX and would love to get my hands on a REX 45 Millie.

Military in CPM-SPY27 or S45VN

Will we see a run of the Military in SPY27 or S45VN? Want to try these out and would prefer to hold out and wait for a Millie version if it's gonna happen. If not then I'll bite the bullet and try to score a P3 or PM2. Haven't been on the forum much so forgive me if this has been discussed elsewhere.

Re: Form vs. Function

I had to vote for liking both but if it came down to one or the other then function always wins, I have no use for knives that are pretty but aren't useful. There is beauty in function, but I definitely prefer to also like the looks too, why not? Sums it up for me. It has to be visually appealing, ...

Can We Get A Fluted CF Military?

Here's my new Spyderco dream knife: Fluted CF Military. They did it with the Native, I don't see why they cant do it with the Military. The fluted Ti Millie is one of the nicest Spydies I've handled and a fluted CF version would be an amazingly awesome knife. Let's even do two versions, say one with...

Re: Native CQI linerless/FRN blade swap?

With the Natives I swap out both blade and lockbar together when doing blade swaps. All in all I've found the Native 5 platform one of the easiest models to perform blade swaps on.

Re: S45VN Sprint Run

Mine arrived yesterday and first impressions are favorable. Out of the box sharpness is very good and this was able to cleanly slice a sheet of free hanging phone book paper. Action was a bit stiff but a hair of a turn on the pivot screw has it drop-shutty with no effect on lockup. The texture on th...

Re: Folding Mule Team?

The folding Mule is a neat idea. It already sort of exists with all of the variants for the PM2 or Para3. They could probably select a handle color and go with a lightweight version of one of those for a folding mule. Agree. Either LW Native or LW Para 3 would serve as reliable and affordable platf...

Re: I Tested the Edge Retention of 48 Steels

... I did not expect M4 to be below S30V in anything. M4 seems to be the recipient of excellent marketing, and S30V, not so much... Looks like M4 in this test has fairly equivalent wear resistance with S30V with both at approximately 61 Rc, and M4 having significantly greater toughness. The HRC dat...

Re: He-Man Military Lover's Club - Enlist Here

Love my S90V Millie and most of all would love to have one in K390. After that 10V would be fun and another run of Cruwear (Micarta?) would be awesome.

Re: Reveal, lack of anticipation, general thoughts.

...I guess that last paragraph isn’t totally true. I know that the Slysz Swayback, Kapara slipjoint and BladeHQ Dodo are coming. But those were mostly announced or hinted at prior to the new reveal program... I had forgotten about the Slysz Swayback. I handled the prototype at Blade 2015 and that w...

Re: Slipjoint mod Para 3

Fantastic design. This mod would be perfect for the comp lock Lil' Native, a knife that I love to carry but would serve me better as a slipjoint.

Surface Rust on DLC Blade

An interesting phenomenon occurred last weekend. While out on a ride I had the DLC M4 Para 3 clipped in my shorts pocket. During the ride I was caught out in a light, steady rain. Not a heavy rain, but enough for me to get nice and soaked. After the ride I noticed some surface rust on the DLC, but o...

Re: The Brouwer's Clip - More than meets the eye, perfectly meets the hand

I'd say that on just about every spydie I own or have owned the grip and ergos have been vastly improved by swapping out to a Lynch deep carry clip. So much so that I'll usually go ahead and order the replacement clip when I order the knife.

Re: Where is the REX 45 Millie?

Agree with all of the above...besides the Para 3. I’m one of the weird people with big hands that just can’t do the Para 3 thing. I may be one of the oddballs with large hands who actually prefers the Para 3 ergos over the PM2. I find the squared off edges of the PM2 are uncomfortable and the point...

Where is the REX 45 Millie?

The REX45 PM2 and Para 3 have come and gone weeks ago and still no sign of the Military. Any word on an ETA? I have the Para 3 version and love it but the Military is the one that most piques my interest in this steel (although a REX45 Shaman would be a great combo, I'm not holding my breath for tha...

Re: I don't like the way this forum discusses corrosion resistance

I suppose I have a body chemistry that makes metals corrode. My "rust proof" SpydieChef was quite a mess after 3 months of riding in my jersey pocket on some long, sweaty bike rides in central Arkansas. When you see the pics below perhaps you will understand why I'm a bit reluctant to carry high car...
