I am now gathering older literature and catalogues as I come across them. Maybe there is a place for these in Spydie Wiki if we scan them.
That is a capital idea.

Re: One for SEF: Graphene

Thank you, Doc! It makes one wonder whether it might not be possible to make a 3 atom thick blade with a 1 atom edge. Also, if there were a way to run an energy current through said blade we would have a knife that could cut through most anything. Another thing about this material is that complete ...

Re: Does anyone else wish for a standard scale color other than black?

I like black, but it is so ubiquitous that even the el cheapo knives have black scales. I like colors if I can get them, but earth tones, greys, blues. I like dark olive drab, dark flat earth, dark grey, dark blues (though I do, oddly love the "blurple"). Browns are okay, depending on the shades, es...

Re: Martial Arts questions.

I dabbled in MA when I was young, several styles. Dabbled is the right word. I have friends who are "nth" degree blackbelts or redbelts in Kung Fu, Judo, Shorin-ryu, Muy Thai, and many other styles. I think that if I were doing it all over again, I would learn 3 things: 1] martial Judo 2] boxing 3] ...

Re: Time Travel Revisited: What kind of effects?

I do not believe this visor ever happened. Nor, do I believe it would ever be accepted in academia, at least not in this generation. Too many careers could be on the line if we could prove they were wrong in their historical assertions. I do think, along with scientists, that time and space are one ...

Re: Time Travel Revisited: What kind of effects?

I think space-time has "holes" in it and I think we might be able to see into the past, but not go there (I think that sometimes people do see through these holes and think they are seeing ghosts). I think what is past is gone. Think about light coming from another star. Millions of years have gone ...

Re: Chap LW idea

There were an (over-)abundance of Chaps on the Spyderco prototype table at last weekend’s OKCA show. Many were various types of stabilized woods that Sal and Eric were trying out, as well as a few new Raffir acrylic scales - one of which I believe had some GITD material integrated into the scales. ...

What drives me batty

The thing that really drives me crazy is that I cannot afford to buy all of the knives that I want from Spyderco. What is worse, just as I decide to pull the trigger on one I have been wanting, Spyderco comes along and tells me one I have been hoping for is soon to be had. AAAHHHH!!!

Re: If Spyderco did a Techno 2 Salt...?

I personally would not go for this. I would not want a detent dependent frame lock clipped to my shorts while diving in a place where the forces might cause it to come unlocked. I would go for a Salt Lil Native back lock, however. Far more practical.

Re: Shipping issues

Hello all, I guess this is the best place for this question, but has anyone ever had shipping issues with knife orders? By that I mean long delays or packages lost altogether etc, from retailers or secondary market sellers? If so, how was the issue resolved? I'm hoping that I'm not facing just such...

Re: 9mm vs 40 S&W vs 45 ACP

In the slaughter house back home they used a .22 to put down hogs and cows, but they were close and penned up. BTW, no one should doubt that a .380 with the right ammunition can be a good choice. It has proven itself to me and to millions. Fairbairn told of someone being shot with a .380 and the bul...

Re: Curiosity....What handgun do you carry????

I used to carry a Keltec P3AT that I successfully defended myself from a pack of large dogs with. However, if I were back where I could carry again, I would probably get a S&W Ti .38 Special because it can use heavier bullets. I worked where I needed something that would disappear, not be noticed, a...
