I love that you didn't put no as an option!
No is the default state! To find the number of people that it's assumed would answer No, do some simple math :)

(Population of Earth) - (# who answered YES) = (# who would answer NO)

Stretch Wave Sprint run!!!

Should Spyderco make this? Would you buy it?

Edit: there's no No option because it's the default state. To find the number of people who default to No, do some simple math :)

Um... no? This is my only account. And I don't see the relevance of when my last post was.

Re: Where Spyderco Knives Fall Short

Being a metrics guy I should enjoy this topic, but honestly never understood the significance of it, especially when taking about a knife you love. Do you want them to change the DF2? Yes. I hope the Dragonfly 3 will either have more cutting edge, be more compact, or both. The DF2 is a great little...

Re: Where Spyderco Knives Fall Short

Your metric picked three backlocks and a knife with a choil. Spyderco likes both. You will want to look at knives that lack those features. A backlock requires a kick to prevent the blade from touching the back spacer. Unless that kick is omitted a backlock will never compare favorably to other loc...

Now that is a nice one! If only there was a version that is more within budget of the average user. Also I guess flipper designs lend themselves to being better in the edge/OAL department

I am completely happy with mine too! But occasionally I wouldn't mind having a bit more edge, or having it a bit more compact in the pocket

Where Spyderco Knives Fall Short

Popular Spyderco knives tend to fall short on edge/overall length ratio. That is, they pack less cutting edge in a relatively larger package. Some might say it's worth giving up some cutting edge for improved ergonomics, but I would argue that a good folder design maximizes both! Here are 11 popular...

Street Beat Shoddiness (pics)

Received my first ever Spyderco Knife today which I've been wanting for a long long time... sadly it might be my last. The Street Beat has always been my favorite fixed blade design, but for a knife of this price I expected much better finish. I'm disappointed. The issues: Most obvious flaw: the gim...
