Re: Anything that can replace Chaparral?

I think a Sage is as close as you're going to get to a Chap with a different lock.

Re: Your toughest Spyderco Folder

My recently acquired Q Ball probably probably has the strongest lock (all my other Spydies are R.I.L.s / Framelocks). My Spydiechef probably has the strongest tip.

Re: Opinion of new Toyota Yaris

Since I no longer have a motorcycle I am looking to buy my wife a small car I take over the other (older) car. We’ve been looking at the new Toyota Yaris since she likes hatchbacks. What do you all think of it? If it's a 2020 Yaris hatch it may be a rebadged Mazda 2. I'd look pretty hard at a Honda...

Re: Q-Ball users?

Well, it's breaking in. I can middle finger flick it open most of the time now. I can also pull back on the lock ball and flick it shut pretty reliably. The edges of the liners are quite sharp, so I'll have to get an emery board and knock those down. It's a shame they cam that way from the factory, ...

Re: Q-Ball users?

I forgot I'd posted to this thread a little over a year ago. The Q Ball I ordered last weekend arrived yesterday. I'm not quite sure what to think of it yet. It's nice, but it isn't wowing me.

I used my Sage 2 to open the shipping box my Q Ball arrived in.

Yes, the Sage 2. With my luck, the Q Ball that I ordered today will follow the pattern.

Re: What's good about S30V

I saw a post by Vivi asking what is wrong with S30V and the first thing that came to mind was why start with the negative? How about what is good about it instead? It is fairly easy to predict the replies to the negative in a way it is like a group opinion has formed with a few that just do not fal...

Re: Which spyderco is in the mail?

I ordered a Q Ball. The closeout price at Knife Center, 58% off MSRP, was enough to get me off the fence on this one.

Re: I think Spyderco should do more titanium framelocks

The Sage 2 has replaced every other pocket knife I own. I'd love a compression frame lock / Ti integral comp lock. I'd love to have a Sebenza Insingo with a Spyder hole.

Re: Newbie with knife steel question...

If you're concerned about durability, skip the compression lock, and skip CBB lock. Every Spyderco I've owned that had steel liners developed rust on the liners. Get a Native 5 lightweight in whatever steel you want, because the Native 5 LW doesn't have liners. Cleaning a bit of rust off of a blade ...

I think the Sage 2 is the CRK Spydie. The Brouwer has a G10 show side scale, lock bar face insert, and finger choil. It's the StriderCo.

Re: College Football Season 2019-2020

Trask showed he was very capable for the Gators, if he (and others) can stay healthy they may end up with a pretty good season. Auburn showed they are a solid team. Tough to get thru the season in the SEC without loss(s) a lot of really good teams. Love college football. UGA and Notre Dame was a go...

Re: Have you had a folding knife open on accident?

I had a Buck Marksman come open while clipped in my pocket. That knife having both a flipper tab and the weakest detent of any folder I've ever owned was not a good combination.

Re: College Football Season 2019-2020

Well, Michigan is being revealed as the overrated team we thought they were. Trask is looking pretty good for the crocodilians. I'm getting ready for the appetizer at College Station before the Big Dawgs eat.
