Re: Crazy Idea

Interesting thought. :cool: BluetypeII has already done this using a Byrd. Check the Byrd forum. IIRC, he had some other posts about the project. I found it here: https://forum.spyderco.com/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=67883&p=1311192&hilit=Clip+modification+byrd#p1311192 Edited to add another thread. http...

Re: Crazy Idea

Wouldn't be hard to make yourself with a spare clip, just bend it around so you can attach a ring to it and put a biner on that. I could do that with a lanyard too. I'd actually like a solid mount to minimize how much is dangling / flopping around. I'd also like the biner to be fairly solidly mount...

Re: Snap it Salt or Salt 2

Ive got both and I have a lot of carry time with a snapit salt from a few years back. ... VooDoo, do you know if the kick is at the front or the rear of the snap-it's ricasso? I'm thinking that adding jimping or deepening the curve into a bit of a choil (or both) could be useful. If by the kick, yo...

Crazy Idea

The recent Snap-It thread has gotten me thinking - I know dangerous thing. The Snap It's snap on carabiner type ring seems like a great way to attach a knife for things like whitewater rafting, fishing, boating, and other activities where one would need more secure retention that a conventional pock...

Re: S30v chipping on new knife after first use

Many folks have reported it with many steels on factory edges. The generally accepted explanation is that the edges get burnt and become brittle from the factory sharpening on belt grinders. Most folks report that the brittleness goes away after several resharpenings. I've had the same experience o...

Re: So I want to try a Native.

I've waiting for a Native 5 FRN Pink in my store (they should get it to me in a week or so), is S30V worth it? Yes, S30V is a great steel. S30V has been used on so many knives from Spyderco and competing companies that the enthusiasts you'll find on forums like this are bored with it. I'd rather ha...

Re: Large slipjoint Spydie, anyone?

I'm still of the firm belief that having the lock there leads to careless handling, making it less safe instead of more safe. Locks are small bits of metal, designed and built by fallible people, which have to fit together just so in order to work. Any of them can fail at any time. The only real sa...

Re: Lil Native

The videos coming out of SHOT show in the past few days have the Spyderco team saying CPM SPY27 is probably going to be on most Golden models in the near future. The latest reveal also showed a rocks glass with an LC200N Lil' Native blade embedded in it, which was kind of a stealth pre-reveal of a L...

Re: Spydie version of a Zero Tolerance 620CF

Well, the ZT 0620 and 0630 are Ernest Emerson's designs, now discontinued by ZT. Spyderco already has a relationship with Mr. Emerson (they license the Wave opener from him), so they could collaborate with him on a Spyderco/Emerson knife. I doubt they'd do one that's too close to the ZT versions for...

Re: So I want to try a Native.

I had a Native 5 G10 / S35VN back when they had liners. The factory screws were a bit too short, I couldn't get the clip tight enough for it to not wobble. In fact, I've never had a Spyderco with a 3 hole clip where the screws thread into the liners that doesn't wobble. The liner-less knives, both F...

Re: Native 5 lw with SPY27?

On IG, Knife Center posted a pic of a Native 5 lightweight with the cobalt blue scales and SPY27 steel. That wasn't in the reveal, so it looks like we'll have other models in the new steel to look forward to in the near future. Thanks for the hint, Julia! :) Though I am not interested in the Native...
