Re: Affordable fixed blade (AFK)

Regarding the steel, if the objective is to keep raw material, tooling and processing costs down, I’d be happy with 52100 or ... I would fall over in a faint if Spyderco did this in 52100 -- a smallish fixed blade (like 4 inches) in 52100 is something I have been thinking about for quite some time....

I've already mentioned this in another topic; But how about a group buying NGO, exclusive to spyderco, for the european free trady area. Think about it in a Massdrop kind of fashion.

Re: New steel for FRN, options, Go !

Sal expressed interest in a sprint run of the Endura/Delica line in SRS15 Japanese powder tool steel in another thread Hmm, looks quite similar to S30V, similar amount of carbon and chrome, more wolfram, less vanadium. So smaller carbides ? http://zknives.com/knives/steels/steelgraph.php?nm=SRS-15%...

put them in a comparison:

HAP 72 looks to be a serious contender,
SG 2 and SLD magic have Manganese and silicon (may make them a lot easier to machine)

Yeah,

Imagine cutting something with a laserlike knife and someone asking:
"****, what kind of blade is that ?!"

And you can say:

"Magic...." :D :cool:

New steel for FRN, options, Go !

Hey guys, I was wondering what kinds of steel you would dream of seeing in the FRN models in future. Super Blue was a dream, As was HAP 40 (missed out on that one, but I've got a caly on preorder !) So what's the next step for you guys, A bit of community CQI , let's say ;) Personally : sage green h...

Re: How do you justify your next Spydie purchase?

I don't.

People around me aren't knifeminded,
but me carrying a knife has kept some of them from serious injury.
So I buy what I want/need, and don't have safe queens.

Re: Reinhold Rhino Update

Yeah, must admit I was a bit saddened by the news of the probable price increase, just like a lot of other members. There went my plan to use the rhino as a gateway drug for the friends. But you know what, it's still an awesome design, and the moment I get it, it's going straight in the pocket, beca...

Has a kickstarter style collective exclusive order ever been made or would that be possible ?

That would give people a chance to put their money where their mouth is and minimise the risk vor spyderco.

Anything flashy would be good.

Hhhmmmm, a solution to one day members who buy and then flip, would be to only allow one knife per member. Alternatively the forum administrators or the people from Spyderco could always send a PM to member with more than a certain number of posts (I would say 500+) a week in advance to the official...
