Re: How about a titanium compression frame lock?

Yes, definitely. I've asked about it here in the past year and Sal said it probably won't happen because of the expense involved. I didn't buy the ATR 2 because it was a linered G10 knife, and not an integral comp lock like the original. I think a fluted Ti handle with integral comp lock would be am...

Re: Today I had a HUGE surprise with my Lil'Native... you were so right Doc !

I'd like to get the Lil Native in compression lock feature. Nice size! Is another steel perhaps, in the plans of the powers that be? There's already been the St. Nick's exclusive in red G10 with black DLC coated 4V blade. That dropped last week and the run of just under 400 pieces sold out in minut...

Re: Anyone else interested in a LW Native Chief?

I'm interested in a LW Native Chief, as long it has the same clip screw hole pattern as the G10 Chief and G10 Natives, or the wire clip. BUT - Between the satndard liner-less G10 Chief and Native, the N5 LW Salt, the upcoming Sage 5 LW, and a few others - there are more Spydies that I'm interested i...

Re: Spyderco Lil' Native S110V Blurple G-10

I'm completely against replacing S110V with Cruwear or Cru-Wear, or however it's spelled this week. I'm fine with both staying in the lineup. I'd like to see a blurple G-10 S110V Lil' Native, and an LC200N LW Salt variant.

Re: The next Endela?

The BRG / ZDP-189 comment got me thinking about what the other standard variants of the Endura and Delica are. Besides just handle colors, the yellow handle with H1 blade Salts are the other standard variant. I think if the Endela was the first of the bright green handle, LC200N blade, Japanese Salt...

Re: Polestar in bd1n?

That's what I thought, but I guess I was wrong as sales do not support my beliefs. sal Why is that? I know for me I want a backlock or cbbl. But I know a lot of people like linerlocksq and these knives have a lot to offer. Dan, I think it's splitting hairs in the Spyderco lineup a little too finely...

Re: What would you like to see next from Byrd?

I want a Byrd (or Spyderco Value Line) RIL (framelock). CRKT has done quite well with the Voxnaes designed Pilar family. The CRKT Burnley Squid, though I personally don't care for it, is still a top 20 seller in pocket knives on Amazon. The Pilar is a very Spyderco-esque design to my eye and hand. I...

Re: coated lc200n?

I like the aesthetic of a black coated blade in combination with some handle colors. Lack of availability of black coated blades hasn't deterred any purchases for me, but I can understand how it could motivate additional purchases for some folks.

Re: I've got about $150 to spend...

I agree with most of the other opinions. I'd try to get the St Nick's Lil' Native or DLT Para 3. It sounds like you really want one of those anyway, and the other knives you listed are, relatively, much more available. Plus, there's always the S110V Para 3 for a little less than the Maxamet version ...

Re: EDC, or rotation?

I used to rotate. Then last year's discontinued list forced me to buy the Sage 2 I'd been waiting on. Now it's basically all I carry. I'll grab my Spydiechef if I'm going out on a friend's boat, or otherwise want something even more rust resistant than the Sage 2. Once the Sage 5 LW is available dir...

Re: "Most Durable" available Spyderco Knife?

Definitely something in H1 and a fixed blade. I'd imagine an Enuff is nearly indestructible. They're fairly thick and short so you can only put so much leverage on them, compared to something 10 inches long that is much easier to bend if you really lean on it. Enuff Salt gets my vote as well. For a...

Re: We are saved! Baseball Season is here!

I'm late to the party, but what do y'all think of Acuña Jr? Does he remind anyone else of Ricky Henderson? Last night in the loss he legged out two infield hits, drew a walk, and stole second twice. Tonight he drew a walk and went 2 for 4 with a HR. He's fun to watch and I'm glad he's a Brave.

Re: Spyderco Knives

Fair enough. Personally I’m not a fan of the native or the chaparral. But I know I’m an outlier in that. And I would say your preference is an outlier on the pm2 and para 3. They sell like hot cakes and I’m pretty sure they have had more sprints and exclusives than any other line of knives. I just ...

Sage 2. Change the detent ball to ceramic like the Spydiechef.
Yes, this (well, Vanax instead of LC200N) is my dream knife.
