Re: Sprints

For sprints and exclusives to have a premium market or collectible status there has to be scarcity, otherwise it doesn’t work. Sprints and exclusives incur higher production costs, and have to sell out both to recoup costs and maintain exclusivity. We can all see the models that linger, and are for ...

Re: Forum knife 2020 - steel poll

SPY27 gets my vote. The likely attributes discussed of fine carbides, high edge stability, ease of sharpening look very appealing.

Re: CPM SPY27 steel

So, a stainless supersteel for those that don’t like supersteels, and an additional USP for Spyderco. I wonder whether this will be exported to Japan to replace VG10? Thank you to Deadboxhero and Larrin for their expert commentary. This is why we need experts! ** Edited to suggest that it would make...

Some people are just sick/stupid/evil beyond comprehension. To compound already such a terrible natural disaster in such ways they all deserve whatever they get.
Best wishes.

What's in a name... :spyder:

I can guess where the SPY came from, but what about the 27?
It also looks most like a beefed up PSF27....

CPM SPY27 steel

Wow. A proprietary Spyderco steel - a CPM pm steel with vanadium, molybdenum, niobium, cobalt and nitrogen.

Any ideas or speculation as to composition and likely performance?

Kapara woes...

Is it just me, but every potential new folder I consider gets compared to my Kapara and very often falls short.

It’s starting to save me money, which is a little alarming.

It must be time for a Kapara sprint, surely?

Re: Forum knife 2020 - model poll

I'll admit that I did not vote for the UKPK but I have to wonder what the results of a poll would be if it was UKPK vs. one other locking knife. Let's say UKPK vs. Shaman or my preference the Lil' Native. What would the results be if you had to choose between a locking knife and a non locking knife...

Re: Randall Model #14 Doing some work on seasoned OAK

I regularly see oak framing that is 3-4-even 500 years or more old. More like iron than concrete, I would say ;) Beautiful knife btw.... Iron for sure.

Re: Something in the water

It’s actually the differences that make it interesting, I think. From time to time someone will vehemently contend that black is white, or vice versa, but that’s life. A post is only proposing an opinion - any third party interested enough to be following the thread will be making up their own mind.

Would you pay up-front for a Forum knife?

A Forum knife is a pretty niche production run, and a big ask of Spyderco, particularly if take-up turns out to be indifferent and inventory hangs around a long time. Pre-ordering through SFO, obviously with the model/spec known , might make the process easier and more certain for Spyderco. Would yo...
