Nishijin is my favorite handle material aesthetically, no traction though. I wonder if the surface can be textured without distorting the view. This might be the best looking Spyderco imo, the Stretch defiantly grows on you.

Can't get your thumb on top the blade with a wave. They are fastest for sure, I never had a problem with zip ties though.

I have the same issue on a ZDP Stretch and have seen a thread in the past about it. The solution seems to be sanding the frn around the pivot. I have done 3 cycles of lube and cleaning with an air compressor over a month's time and it didn't help. Also adjusting the pivot and lock bar tension didn't...

Defiantly a good idea, however it seem like a particularly difficult design to modernize.

I have always been a big fan of more blade, but have come to favor the choil. On the other hand, when im not using the choil it bugs me being far from the edge. A lot less leverage and precision from there. I find with the Manix 2 or PM2 style choil I opt to use it more often than say the Stretch. I...

I have to say 3mm is a good compromise, thickness behind the edge is ultimately why I regrind.

Manix 2 translucent, the pm2 seemed to weight about what the Military does. I prefer the thinner blade stock and thinner behind the edge Manix blade.

I just wish it was S30v. G10 would add weight and cost, would it add strength too?

If locks as strong as the blade itself became popular, would it change the way you use your knives? Not me, but im still interested in the advancement and implementation.

Good to hear your experience, lock back's are my favorite. I had a CS Rajah 2 fail once chopping, despite loctite the pivot loosened causing the lock to fail. Im not sure if I could have released it by accident, but the lock had almost no tension so it could have disengaged during an impact. Anyway,...

I had a similar thought recently after seeing CRKT's new line. I would love to see something lighter weight with better ergonomics and steel. They do have an attractive blade shape, or a reverse tanto like the bm940 would do as well.

Im a big fan of the latest and greatest steels. Sense I sharpen with power equipment, I can get great edge retention without longer sharpening. The blade also lasts longer.

^^ I used to dislike lock backs, now they are a favorite. I love the idea behind the Calypso, but the 3.5 was always too small for me to consider. This sprint had me excited, until I found out how large the grip is. A comfy grip for me is the 3.5 without the choil, the military works because of the ...
