Re: Batoning serrated (H1) edges - ?

Give it a go and report back in. I’m sure it will work just fine. I too believe in using the “right tool for the right job” but sometimes we can go a bit overboard here. For me it becomes a way to justify having as many knives as I do. Hahaha. The thought that I need a dedicated knife for this and t...

Re: Batoning serrated (H1) edges - ?

Hi Warstein, I haven’t done any batoning with serrated H1 but I have pushed it through a lot of hard media at high force (mostly fish bones). I’d say this is one of the areas where serrated H1 is going to UNDERperform. Consider the mechanics. H1 is a relatively soft (though tough steel) to begin wit...

Re: Is my waterway underperforming or do I have unrealistic expectations?

Hi Murat, welcome to the forum. Lots of good advice on here already. I find that with lc200n, a 40 degree microbevel helps with edge stability in fish processing work (which can be very taxing on an edge due to the constant contact with bone and scales). Regarding the stain spot, I have had a number...

Re: Waterway Options Poll

Lance, first of all thanks for that great knife. It’s fun to use and a great design. Also a perfect choice for my first LC200N experience. I use it primarily in my kitchen. I do outdoors very seldom and we have no access to the sea, therefore it lives in my kitchen. I voted for orange and DLC. Oran...

Re: Waterway Options Poll

Thanks for the feedback so far everyone. I’ll offer a couple of my thoughts as well. First of all, it looks like the high visibility handle would be the preferred addition of the options listed. My feelings are in line with most of yours on that. I have always liked that the Salt knives are availabl...

Waterway Options Poll

Hey guys, I have been giving some thought to this for awhile now and figured I would ask for some opinions. I originally designed the Waterway as a PE knife to carry for use on my kayak and other outdoor activities but from the beginning I have imagined having different versions. If I had my choice ...

Re: SE performance is more than simply teeth vs no teeth.

That was an amazing write up David. I read every word and that is one of the best written and most informative posts I have read in my years here. I have a lot of experience with serrated edges and my observations about what performs best mirror yours almost exactly. I have used a serrated pacific s...

Re: So what's your top 3 favorite steels? and why?

1. Lc200n/h1 for production knives but if it was available I’d probably replace both with Vanax. The question was favorite steel, not favorite steel that is practical and affordable to use in a production knife. :) 2. Cruwear or Maxamet. I know those two are pretty different but I’m trying to cram 6...

Re: CRUWEAR for all!

I have said for a couple of years now that I think that Cruwear would fit nicely in the regular production lineup. I think there is room for all three...s30v, s110v and Cruwear. That would give the ELU a lot of performance choices and I think all of them are different enough that they could co-exist...

Re: Pocket clip (wood-) screws just in wood?

Hey Warstein, I can relate. If you aren’t a “collector” and aren’t going to sell the knife then it would be silly not to modify it to your liking. I definitely would NOT try to attach screws just to the wood. That wood is simply too thin for that. Either use threaded inserts or countersink small ste...

Re: Rusty Waterway - Your Thoughts

Cool thread Bloke. I have to admit I’m a little surprised there are so many negatives. I wonder if that is because people feel the design is a poor fit for a tool steel or if the name of the Waterway makes it seem like a weird idea. For me, a name is just a name. I felt from the very beginning that ...

Congratulations Lance! You've designed a great fishing/outdoors/edc knife and nobody makes lockbacks better than Spyderco. An ideal collaboration!

Hey Sal, your Taichung maker deserves a TON of respect for the quality of the knives they are producing. There are very few production facilities in the world that can compete with those guys. I’ll say this though...Golden, CO still has them beat when it comes to the edge. Many of the Taichung folde...

Thanks for the nice words everyone. I feel very honored to have Spyderco produce this design! It is indeed a linerless knife and was designed to have the rustproof qualities of other lockback Salt knives. It looks well designed Lance. Excited to give it a try. Thanks vivi, actually I thought of you...

Re: Province edge angle

Hey kgasp, I haven’t used 4v at all but ive handled the Province prototype and it has good geometry and enough steel behind the edge to support some fairly hard use. On a knife like the province, steels like s30v should handle the work you describe at 18dps with no issues. I don’t think you will hav...

I didn’t miss your point doc. I just thought Yablanowitz’s wording was kind of funny (whether it was meant that way or not). I get what you’re talking about and like I said, it’s a fun idea. :)

But it would certainly help me as a veteran and an ex pat living overseas to show that I am indeed a collector and not some nutcase. You say that as if the two were mutually exclusive. If people want to paint you as a nutcase, being a member of a collector organization just makes you a card-carryin...
