Re: Family friendly jokes

An 85 year old couple were married almost 60 years before they both died. They had been in good health the last ten years mainly due to her interest in health food, and exercise. When they reached the pearly gates, St Peter took them to their mansion which was decked out with a beautiful kitchen and...

Re: Slipit as a base for testing new steels

One requirement that you are perhaps not thinking of is that in order to get a new steel to test,besides sometimes begging, we have to purchase a minimum quantity. Usually 1,000 to 2,000 lbs. That would be an awful lot of UK's or Urbans to try to move with an experimental steel. sal With that in mi...

Re: Black S90V Delica with blue liners - KW exclusive

I am pretty sure the black frn is lined with blue frn and a blue back spacer. The liners, which are nested and generally unseen are plain steel. Some with the knife correct me if I’m wrong and post a picture, please.

Re: Slipit as a base for testing new steels

Hi Doc, What you are asking is a lot more complicated than you might imagine. sal I know I’m not in the business, but I am not suggesting a new knife. Just an existing one with Sprint Run steel choices like we have gotten with the Urban. I like what has been done there. I would not mind at all seei...

Re: Slipit as a base for testing new steels

Steel testing on rope and etc it great, but most of us cut zip ties, open cans, open plastic packaging, cut food, cut string, hit the edge on plates, cut saplings, cut cane for fishing poles, clean game, carve wooden instruments, and more such things. This gives us practical daily use knives of prac...

Re: Slipit as a base for testing new steels

The spring is vastly superior in the new knife versus its predecessor. I would not want a knife larger than the UKPK as I would not nor could not carry it daily. I like that these knives are inexpensive. If I really like a steel tested in one of these I can buy a more expensive knife. Also, slip joi...

Slipit as a base for testing new steels

It’s no secret that I like the Urban LW as a vehicle fir testing new steels in everyday life. It is very size efficient and pocket friendly. The walk is not great, though, being too hard to open. I did not care for the UKPK because the earlier ones I handled did not have a nice spring tension. That ...

Re: Older box is better

I had kept all of my boxes until this year. There were so many they filled a soft suitcase and a shelf in The closet. Something had to go, so out went most of the ones on the shelf. I’ll get around to the bag when I’m strong enough to lift it.

I would like an Urban in Elmax, but truthfully the only thing this steel has going for it is a cool moniker.
Isn't that something that was already done?
I see wrdwght beat me to it. I would not mind at all to have a Sprint Run for the rest of us. Of course M390 would be even better.

Re: Z-Cut cuts

Mine came very sharp. I did not need to touch it up, which is what I expect from Spyderco.

Another thing I like is the different handle colors. That keeps knives being used for one food from contaminating another food. This is more important than people realize.

I don’t care about the box as long as there is a Spyderco inside. I do take donations.

Re: The Endela.

I’m thinking about getting an Endela for destroying boxes at work, do you guys like this model or should I just get another Endura (traded my last one). Thanks. The Endela has a slightly improved handle for some compared to the Endura (a bit more handfilling, the points between the finger grooves h...
