Re: Should I get a Sage 5 Lightweight?

Yes, get one. I like that my Watu is even thinner and has a 20CV blade. I like that my Native 5 Salt is, well, a Salt and totally rust proof, along with being more robust than the Watu. The Sage 5 LW is a great balance between the two in terms of blade thickness. It feels a little better in hand tha...

Re: Enuff Drop Point/Leaf in LC200N PE

What about a plain edge ARK? If you could get by with a folder, there's the Native 5 LW Salt with LC200N in PE.

Re: How about a folding Whale Rescue? Aka a safety tipped Spyderhawk? Rescuehawk?

I like idea. I think it would be a great all around rescue tool. A full SE, rounded tip, hawkbill would make for one heck of a seatbelt cutter too. I'd carry one anytime I was on a friend's boat as well, just in case someone got caught in a line, or I encountered a bird, turtle, or other fresh water...

Re: Salt Dyad interest ???????????????????????????????

I'm out if the clip screws secure to the liner. Every Spyderco I've owned where the clip screws thread into the liners has either stripped out the liner screw holes or the screws just won't tighten enough and the clip wobbles like crazy. Threaded inserts like most of the Salts and Natives have work...

Re: S35vn on the Tenacious...what does it mean?

I think that this a masterstroke by Sal & Eric because they manage to kill three birds with one stone: 1) Chinese people are gradually increasing their purchasing power. So offering to hundreds of thousands of potential Chinese customers a knife made in their own country by a top US company witha a...

Re: Salt Dyad interest ???????????????????????????????

I am always in for that! I prefer the Micro out of them all. But, I would never complain about a full LC200N C44. NO LINERLESS! I'm out if the clip screws secure to the liner. Every Spyderco I've owned where the clip screws thread into the liners has either stripped out the liner screw holes or the...

Re: Salt Dyad interest ???????????????????????????????

I'd be very interested in a Salt Dyad with PE leaf blade and SE sheepsfoot rescue blade, both in LC200N. I'd buy in just about any bright handle color Spyderco offers it in, although orange would be my least favorite.

Re: S35vn on the Tenacious...what does it mean?

Is the Chinese-made Tenacious subject to tariffs because the $98.00 price seems high? The US-made Para3 with S30V/FRN is also $98.00, the US-made Native5 with S30V(S35VN)/FRN is $105.00 and the Taiwan-made Chaparral with XHP/FRN is $95.90. Yes, the price does seem high, I'd also like to know why. W...

I want an endela salt. Green, FFG, SE, lc200n
YES! I want something a little bigger than my Native 5 Salt, and the Endela as an LC200N Salt would be perfect. I'll probably buy one of the green LC200N Pac Salt 2's though.

Re: S35vn on the Tenacious...what does it mean?

But now it cost as much as a native? Im not against it, but at that price I would rather put my money towards something else. Also, is the fit and finish going to be twice as good? I like a lot of the chinese designs, but the fit and finish and overall quality of my Chinese produced spydies are far...

Let's take this all the way to the logical conclusion: Add corrosion resistant hardware, make that SE blade FFG LC200N, and just do a Native Chief Salt :)

Re: Who of you buys only Spyderco, no other brand knives?

I might buy a Benchmade Bugout one day, but my Native 5 Salt SE has tempered my desire for just about any other folder. The only thing I really want now is an Endela Salt if Spyderco ever makes it. If Spyderco made a Clipitool with cigar scissors like the SAK cigar knives I'd buy one of those as soo...
