Re: This is disappointing...

If it’s too good to be true - buyer beware!

By knowingly buying counterfeits you’re supporting the illegitimate business and taking business away from the legitimate company which owns the trademark, patent or copyright. Two-thirds of all counterfeit products come out of China.

Re: S35vn on the Tenacious...what does it mean?

I checked out BladeHQ where both ParaMilitary2 and Para3 outsell the current/old Tenacious in terms of quantities sold. When you multiply that by the higher prices of ParaMilitary2 and Para3 the gap widens considerably by $ales. That’s just one dealer. Spyderco was keen on downplaying S35VN for quit...

Re: S45VN Forest Green G-10 (Diamond Arc Pattern)

Looks like Military by a wide margin. I guess it helps that we haven’t had a new Military Exclusive or Sprint Run in over 19 months.

S45VN Forest Green G-10 (Diamond Arc Pattern)

We’ve had the S45VN Forest Green G-10 (Diamond Arc Pattern) flavors for the ParaMilitary2 and Para3 thus far as Sprint Runs. How about new flavors of S45VN Forest Green G-10 (Diamond Arc Pattern) Sprint Runs for some or all of the following granted they’re not as popular as ParaMilitary2 and Para3 a...

Re: What’s up with the military?

I don't have any data to show this, but I think the reason the Para 3 didn't show up on the "favorite models" thread but has the most variants available right now is because it isn't necessarily popular with knife afi's but is very popular with the general public/more casual knife people. I think a...

Re: What’s up with the military?

The Military is one of my favorites and I still have and use the ComboEdge S30V Black G-10 which I got in September 2005 for $103!

RamZar, I really appreciate all the work you put into keeping this list up, but the Sage has the wrong model number.

And you listed it as one of you favorites! Walk of shame time. 😉

Thanks. Corrected it in all places.

Re: Six-Thousand Nine-Hundred Forty Days

It was a shock to the system and difficult to comprehend and digest. At first sight, the second plane looked like an insect attracted to an electronic insect killer like in a bad dream. The tragic loss of life could’ve been a lot worse. Let’s not forget all the people who helped clear the site and n...

Re: S35vn on the Tenacious...what does it mean?

Is the Chinese-made Tenacious subject to tariffs because the $98.00 price seems high? The US-made Para3 with S30V/FRN is also $98.00, the US-made Native5 with S30V(S35VN)/FRN is $105.00 and the Taiwan-made Chaparral with XHP/FRN is $95.90. Para 3 lw is bd1n not S30v.

Re: S35vn on the Tenacious...what does it mean?

A lot of reputable Chinese knife manufacturers like WE, Reate and Kizer use S35VN & M390 for their higher end knives and D2 & VG-10 for their lower end knives. At $98.00 the Tenacious Lightweight S35VN Blue FRN is not exactly cheap compared to the Tenacious Lightweight 8Cr13MoV Black FRN at $45.50!
