Delica FRN to micarta

Got the St. Nick's Delica in today and it is the smoothest Spydy I've gotten to date. Fit and finish is impeccable! Now I originally got this to replace the red go scales with brown micarta BUT its so nice I don't want to touch it! Should there be any problem swapping micarta scales onto my Wharnie ...

Re: What's The Best Deal You Have Made on a Spydie?

I've been looking for a new/slightly used Proficient as a go to outdoor knife. Found some here and there but they were well used or with broken tips from improper use. Found one on eBay at the first of the year with bidding starting at $99. Now granted it was originally from the seconds sale at the ...

Re: Which spyderco is in the mail?

HAP40 Endura in Pakkawood!. I hoped KC would run it again. Nice match to my Delica.

Re: Have there been any sprints or exclusives of the Manix 2 XL?

As stated CF s90v from Knife works EDC forums GITD in s30v. Those are the only 2 that are different and /or exclusives from regular g10, s30v, DLC/ non coated. Yes I have all versions of the above. Actually have 3 of the s90v. Built like a tank! S30v's do just as well also plus easier to sharpen! An...

In too deep with s90v!

Well as it turns out I have 20+ models in s30v but my special folders and fixed are all s90v. Looked around this and the BF over the weekend after purchasing a discontinued Sprig and a steal on a seconds Proficient. Need some recommendations on angles for the Sprig to make it a literal razorblade? A...

Re: Request: Rex45 or M4 Manix 2 XL

I have a regular s30v XL and 2 in s90v. Yes I've urged this for quite some time for a dealer to do a Sprint run or exclusive in a higher end steel. I'd buy 3 of any version in 4V, Rex45, CTS-204P. I use my XLs as pretty much fixed blades and they never let me down.
Just saying.

Re: Fixed blade finale.. with your help

That's the info that I'm looking for "handle is quite large", hence I have small hands and a 6.75 wrist. Very valuable info there.!!! I would stay with my Manix XL in s90 but wanted to try another steel instead of the s90v Proficient as well. Hate to say it but Lionsteel has some nice 3.75-5.0 inch ...

Fixed blade finale.. with your help

Would like some real world input of others that have tried either the new Zoomer or Proficient. I've have a Serrata and absolutely love it, however I need a longer more robust blade for semi Bushcraft and camp chores. The Zoomer is up there in the upper extreme limits of budget. One thing it has for...

Re: Tastes changing, Brouwer love

For some reason I knew that I would like the Brouwer. Smaller size similar to the Delica. I have a Fradon Carbon Delica and it is super thin with the carbon fiber. The Brouwer is similar in thickness. Spyderco doesn't do too many spear point blades if ever also. The smooth frame lock is a nice touch...

Re: Are you cheating on the bug?

I used to go both ways! Ha. JK. Delica in high school, Buck in college, ZTs and Kershaw's,. Stopped all that and came back to the best there is. Problem is that I can't buy every Spyderco I see/want. Also my 4yr old says on a regular basis , "look daddy you got another knife". He knows the best and ...

Re: Cruwear and hype

Gotcha. Yeah all the others I have required some learning while sharpening. Forgot about my 52100 that I'm still learning with. So Cruwear will give me a nice super crisp edge similar to Hap40 ? Corrosion isn't a concern since 52100 rusts by me looking at it but I still love it. What angle is recomm...

Re: Sheeple Friendly Spyders?

Why do you care what other people think? Most people I believe just wanted to fit in with their environments so they care to some extent. With that being said I sometimes walk with a Manix 2 XL when taking the dog out for a 2 mile walk in the subdivision. At work i carry either a Para3 or PM2 based...

Re: KnifeCenter Para 3 Cruwear

It's the "good" smooth. In that it is easier on the pants than g10 or even CF when being drawn. Barely a texture but yet enough! If that makes sense.

Looking for input from anyone out there with Cruwear. I have some micarta custom scales I'm thinking about putting on the new Cruwear Para 3 from KC. I want this to be a great working knife and steel so why all the hype with Cruwear? I have many other Spydercos with s90, S110v, several Hap40. What w...

Emergency go to, hurricane others

Several months ago this topic was discussed as to what knife would you have or take in an emergency. Well as I sit through hurricane Florence and the 45+ mile per hour winds outside of Charlotte I have 3 knives that are on a prep bag in my spare room. Those are Para 3 in Rex 45, Manix 2 XL in S90V, ...
