Re: Salt Series

Manix 2 LW Salt with translucent yellow scales!!! Obviously in LC200N, maybe give it a SE option along with the PE. Great idea, especially the SE-part... ;) This has been discussed here on a number of occasions. Keeping the CBBL rust proof on a Manix Salt could be a challenge. Namely the spring? I’...

Re: Schempp Rock 'Chopper' idea

Hey Ed, I went to Gayle Bradley’s shop a few years ago and got to look at some of his choppers with horse stall mat handles. Great feel and grip. I actually considered using something like that on one of my water purposed fixed blades. I seem to recall Sal saying it was kind of a PITA to work with i...

Re: Schempp Rock 'Chopper' idea

I would definitely be in on this idea! I always liked the look of the Rock Salt but when I handled it I felt it was too light for what I would do with it. Main use of a heavier version for me would be opening coconuts and cutting back brush in the jungle behind my place. I typically use short machet...

Re: Salt Series

I would love to see a GITD Salt knife. Bet you can’t guess which model I’d like that in. :rolleyes: :D

Re: pain to sharpen SE blades?

Added to my post above and addressing your question on "only sharpen on one side": You´ll see in Sals and Vivis vid that there are a bit differing approaches: Spydercos SE knives come from the factory ground only on one side (to something between 15 to 20 degrees, inclusive , not "per side") You ca...

Very nice. Exactly as advertised weight: 3.4oz / 96g.
That’s great z4! I’d be happy to hear your thoughts after some carry and use. :spyder:

Where did you get yours? They are still kind of hard to find but I see a few up at Knifeworks and REC.

Re: Good kayak knife?

Pacific and Atlantic both look good. Not sure if I want a sharp or blunt tip though? The blunt seems like a better idea for a marine environment. The Pacific Salt is already a pretty blunt tip. For my on water uses I don’t find it any more dangerous than something like an Atlantic Salt. I actually ...

Re: NSFW We lost one of our own today (open at your own risk)

The good news is that the medium ceramics eventually clog up and start to lose their cutting power and need to be replaced. Given, it takes a LOT of sharpening but they don’t last forever like the white rods. If those rods are well used then you will be happy with the increase in cutting power you f...

Re: Knives for fidgeters?

I dunno, this is a sad thread in my opinion... Sorry everyone. End rant Well, for me the word "fidgeting" is dumbing it down quite a bit. For me the knife hobby is as much about engineering and design as it is about steel and edges. I enjoy locks and pivots, so the "fidgeting" is a way of enjoying ...

Re: Rare 1990 BLACK SEAL.

Perhaps it's my eyes, they've seen better days, or the fact that markings can be hard to see on a black knife, but I can't see any SEAL marking on that Police. TiNi coatings were done experimentally by Spyderco from fairly early on but the problem is, they were also done aftermarket by distributors...

Re: What has become of Bladeforums?

Like some others, I used to be very active on Bladefourms but now rarely check it. I check this forum once or twice a day, BF I check once or twice a week. Too many trolls and I always felt like they had heavy handed moderators. Most of my time there was spent on the Spyderco sub forum and I feel li...

Re: Spyderco Face Mask (now bandana, hat and patch)

I would rather see a snap back than fitted hat. I like the fitted hats with elastic (at least in theory) but my head size seems to be right in between sizes. The large fits ok at first but over a month or two they always kind of stretch out to the point that they are way too loose. I never buy them ...

Re: Spyderco Face Mask

Personally, I wouldn't buy one. This face mask thing won't last forever and I for one will be glad when it's over. I’m with you on this one. It seems like the face mask is quickly becoming a controversial and divisive symbol. Plenty of companies are going to make some $$ selling them but if my comp...

Re: DragonFly II in K390

I’ll likely get one. I STILL haven’t tried k390 and I’m ready to give it a go. The Dragonfly is the only model in that run that I’m interested in but don’t already have so that will probably be a go for me.
