Re: Sharpmaker and sharpening serrated K390 - expectations?

I still have a ton to learn in terms of sharpening any serrated blades, but in terms of sharpening a PE K390 blade I don't do anything different than I do with something like a Rex45 blade and it seems to work well for me. That said, I'm really looking forward to the plethora of FFG SE K390 in our ...

Re: LC200N or H1 Dragonfly 2 with DARK COLOR handle!

I’m on board with this for sure. I always preferred the black/satin Pacific Salt to the yellow one...now that knife isn’t even available. I like the blacked out Salts too but I’d rather have satin since I always regrind the tips on my Pacifics and Salt 2’s. I would definitely be on board for a black...

Re: Solving the issue of things we ask for

Another thing to consider is how would this affect the sprint and exclusive market. I believe that Spyderco does pretty well with its sprints and the exclusive runs are highly sought after by dealers and customers. If you started increasing the number of possible variants on all models then there wo...

Re: Who wants more BBL and BAL ?

I like the looks of the BBL but in anything but ideal conditions, (wet or slippery) I find it difficult to close one handed. I like the looks of the raw BBL better but the caged ball works much better for me in everyday use.

I received mine from KC a few minutes ago. Definitely a nice color. Not sure what to call it exactly. Emerald Green? Regardless, I like it
Kind of a teal? Looks nice to me.

Re: Manix 2 LW CPM SPY27 now shipping to dealers!

I really want to try this steel and see what it’s all about. I was going to get a para 3 LW but I think the Manix LW might be a better platform for me. I was never a huge fan of the g10 Manix and then I got the Manix LW in Maxamet. The LW version of the Manix is like a completely different design. I...

Re: VG-10 vs LC200N

I think that one of the biggest determining factor (that is often overlooked) is what are you cutting? I have had LC200N edges that seemed to outperform VG10 and weeks later the same knife would seem to fall short vs its vg10 counterpart. I feel like LC200N performs on par with vg10 on lots of mater...

Re: Thee Most Practical Spyder Of All Time? Your Choice?

I’m obviously biased but I’d be lying if I said anything other than the Siren. Given that it was designed 100% around MY idea of practicality I’d have to have done a pretty poor job if it wasn’t first on my list. The Pacific Salt is a VERY close second for my use and until there is a serrated Siren ...

Re: Wildland Firefighters Knife

What about a v-shaped cutout in the handle with two opposing pieces of cutting material (like hacksaw blade) set in the V. Kind of like those cheap carbide sharpeners. You could wedge the wire into the v and just move the handle up and down until it cut through. You would want to design it in such a...

Re: Serrated Siren Poll

Hey Blue, I do have the new Pacific Salt...mine is PE. I like the knife but there wasn’t much surprise about that. As much time as I’ve spent using LC200N, I already knew how the steel would perform and I already knew that I liked the platform. The only difference has been moving from the Endura 3 h...

Re: Wide-bladed Knives

Good list of answers Wartstein. Another advantage is that a wider blade can be more easily positioned in a design to leave the cutting edge lower than the handle (for making cuts on flat surfaces).

Re: How about a new Military?

K390, 10V, Maxamet or 4V all sound great. I would also buy a Military Salt. Who am I kidding, I would buy a Military in any flavor. Me too. I would go for 4v or k390 but I like the idea of a frame lock like the old m4 exclusive that Knifeworks did. I was always sad I missed that one. 4v in the same...

Has anyone used this steel enough to get an idea of how corrosion resistant it is? Compared to s30v for example?

Re: Sharpening system for the blind

I would definitely recommend the sharpmaker. Gravity and our body’s equilibrium give us a highly accurate interpretation of the vertical and horizontal plain, even without the aid of our eyes. If I had to put a blindfold on and use one of the two systems I would feel WAY more confident with the shar...

Re: What thickness would you like in a small fixed blade?

Depends upon how tall the blade is and amount of distal taper if you decided to go thinner than 2.5 mm. I like slicey knives. What steel? What fixed configuration? Don't recollect a good fixed Bird & trout in Spyderco's current lineup. Fairly tall blade. I guess I’d classify it as a skinner but it’...
