Re: BladeHQ M4 Jade Dodo

I've been thinking it would be before the Black Friday madness starts, but if so, it had better hurry up.

Re: Open Back Construction

Interesting that spydie fans want to know about both the development of the designs and the etymologies of their name origins. I never knew when I signed on here that it would be such an intellectual forum :D but I much like it. Open or partially open construction of the different lock types is defi...

Re: Q-Ball users?

Likewise I was about to comment on your post then noticed I'd said most of it in the post just before yours <:o

I also like it because I like the bare BB and CBB locks and am now lurking in the shadows ready to pounce on the jade M4 Dodo when it's released :D

Re: Spyderco 2019 Lists: Delivered & Upcoming

Has there been any word of DLT releasing another run of the red G-10 20CV Manix 2? I thought I remembered mention of it soon after the original release, but it doesn't seem likely with all the new releases coming out these days. I remember reading DLT saying that too, last year. And, it does take a...

I keep waffling, but right now I want the Endura, Endela, and a Wharnie Dragonfly.

Re: BladeHQ M4 Jade Dodo

So it's finally about to be released! And in my favorite steel, or 2nd favorite after K390. The other 3 models (6 counting PE and SE) were all S30V, so this is really a premium release. I like that they weigh only 2.6 oz and are very discrete carry, yet have a heavy duty lock and blade. I'm glad the...

Re: K390 fans rejoice!

I'm looking forward to seeing the FRN color. I'm not a huge FRN fan, but I do like some of the colors, especially blue variations and BRG. IIRC my standard Endura Emerson has a sort of blueblack color which is just subtly different from the standard black. And the more I think about it, the more I w...

Re: K390 fans rejoice!

I don't mind the scratches, and I know it doesn't affect function, but I do like for the exposed amount of the middle layer to look at least roughly similar on both sides.

Re: Poll: Preferred steel choice(s) for a Manix 2 XL Sprint or Exclusive?

The 4V toughness would probably be best for my uses too, and I would definitely try for a St Nick's sprint if that happens to be the next XL available.

St Nick's needs to give the Manix (both standard and XL) their red G10/DLC 4v treatment.
I'd definitely take the standard M2 in the St Nick's sprint, and would probably get the XL too, but I'd rather have the XL in K390, M-4, or satin 4V with some kind of OD green or brown G-10.

Re: K390 fans rejoice!

I don't know what the obsession with laminating good steel is about but I really hope they don't laminate these. I think it's mainly an outgrowth of the centuries old Japanese tradition of laminating and/or differentially tempering the spine and edge of swords to give them a very hard edge but stil...

I'm guessing these won't be laminated. It is not a Japanese steel, and the Police4 was not.
My thoughts also.

Re: CPM 4V | Edge Performance

I'd like to see 4V at high hardness and FFG in the Manix 2 and Manix 2 XL. And of course, I'd like to see it narrower BTE. I didn't buy the Fradon Lock exclusive because of the price ($209.95--high for me) and hollow grind -- But the hollow grind looked pretty thin behind the edge. Anybody know its...

Re: K390 fans rejoice!

This may turn out to be one of the most popular Seki sprint series, for me at least! (The Superblue series holds that spot for me so far.) I hope the Endela is the first release -- I've wanted one for years, though I usually called it an Endelica or Delacura :D Also looking forward to the Wharnie Dr...

Re: Sal, are there any plans for another K390 knife?

Well, I’ll be... Looks like my Endura family is going to grow. K390 is one of my faves. I’m curious what had to happen in Seki City for European steel to be allowed into Japanese-made knives. The EU and Japan recently signed a trade pact i believe Don't know if this has anything to do with it or no...

I just made my first scales out of micarta today. Man, it’s nasty stinky stuff. I can see why Spyderco hasn’t been wanting to make knives with micarta.

Wish they had some green micarta for an XL, I'd grab some.
I told Allen Putman that ^^^ when I answered his email about the Manix 2 scales. It would help create more demand if we could get a new XL sprint or exclusive in K390.
