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 ...

Re: Is the Siren a Salt?

Congratulations Lance! You've designed a great fishing/outdoors/edc knife and nobody makes lockbacks better than Spyderco. An ideal collaboration! I'm definitely looking forward to carrying one of these. :) Thanks Chad, that means a lot coming from you! If anyone doesn’t know, Chad made the first a...

Re: Province edge angle

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...

Re: Is the Siren a Salt?

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...

Re: Collectors club for the rest of us?

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. :)

Re: Collectors club for the rest of us?

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...

Re: Riddle me this!

Ok, one more example. You have 100 doors and one of them has a prize. You select a door. The host then gives you a chance to switch your 1 door for ALL the other 99. Do you switch? Of course you do. Now lets add one more step in. This time you also get to select 1 door. There is a 1% chance you have...

Re: Riddle me this!

Fair enough. If we ever end up in a casino and someone is playing this game then you can bet on the guy that draws one card and I’ll take the guy who has 51. It will probably work out 50/50 like you are imagining. Bring your ATM card just in case though. :p Clearly I’m being a smartass (hopefully in...

Re: Riddle me this!

Here is one other example that helps. Let’s say you are watching two guys, Joe and Tom, play a card game. They are drawing cards to see who can get the highest card (which they have agreed is the ace of spades). Joe draws one card and Tom draws the other 51. Before they play their cards, Tom has the...

Re: Riddle me this!

The only way to make you a believer is to ask you to do a simulation...label three red plastic cups (non-see-through) with numbers 1,2 and 3. Have someone place an object under one of the cups (without you looking). Then, you select a cup (without revealing what is or is not under it). Then, the pe...

Re: Riddle me this!

Oooh I love these. My favourite one is the Monty Hall problem: Suppose you're on a game show, and you're given the choice of three doors: Behind one door is a car; behind the others, goats. You pick a door, say No. 1, and the host, who knows what's behind the doors, opens another door, say No. 3, w...

It took me a while but I think I figured out the hockey puck riddle.

Wife walked in while I was scribbling on the notepad, I explained the riddle. She said, "I'd just hold them in each hand and judge the weights, don't need the scale." Beaten again.

Re: Knife myths you should not accept as true a priori (meant to be a POSITIVE thread!)

I don't recall ever reading or hearing anyone say a linerlock was as strong or stronger than a backlock. Myth: High carbide steels don't take or hold a fine edge as long as low/no carbide steels. Great one. I will say sometimes lower carbide steels can be a better choice for knives where high sharp...

Re: Knife myths you should not accept as true a priori (meant to be a POSITIVE thread!)

Hey Meat man, I hear you but I also think it depends what you are cutting. I like serrations on the kayak for gill cutting fish. Even a couple or serrations is enough to grab the gill and make a much more controlled and short pull cut. One of the biggest advantages I get out of serrations is how the...

Myth: A combo edge doesn’t have enough of either edge type to be useful. This is one of the most oft repeated comments I hear explaining people’s dislike for combo edges. I understand that a combo edge is not for everyone and I can think of some reasons not to like one but this statement doesn’t eve...

Re: Riddle me this!

Here is a very simple one but it’s still a good light practice of logical thought.


Jack is looking at Anne, but Anne is looking at George. Jack is married, but George is not. Is a married person looking at an unmarried person?

A) Yes
B) No
C) Cannot be determined
