Re: Who Wants a High Carbon Native?

I like my Native 5 LW with S90V blade. S90V has more than double the carbon of 52100. Even the base Native 5's S30V steel has nearly half again the carbon of 52100. So, Spyderco is already making the Native 5 with high carbon content blade steels. If you just want a non-stainless carbon steel or hig...

Re: Emerson wave opener legal classification?

I'll add that JimyP might also contact the folks at Knife Right and AKTI as start, but my attorney friends always remind me that you really need to pay an attorney who specializes in weapons and / or self defense law in the state in question to get a definitive answer. If your state statutes aren't ...

Re: Spyderco's Designated "Beaters"

My two beaters are a Native 5 Salt SE, and an otherwise regular S30V Native 5 LW with the KBPI logo on the blade, that I got for a stupidly low price. I think any SE Salt, and many of the LW models, qualify as beaters.

Re: C41PTBL5 Teal S90V Native 5 lightweight

I got mine yesterday, and after a quick wash with a soft bristle brush and dish soap I shaved a cigar cap off with it. It might be the sharpest out of the box Spyderco I've had. I'm with you on G10 feeling better in hand, but this one looks great, and I still really like the FRN Natives. I'm thinkin...

Re: Vanax PM2 Lets Do This!!!

Thank you all for the contributions to the idea. As much as I want a Vanax PM2 I would obviously be open to other models. I really want it to be USA made because I love the USA and because no one has done it yet. That being said I think a siren or native might be in more people’s interest and keep ...

Re: Jimping poll

I voted no preference, but - as The Deacon and bearfacedkiller have already written - it's really dependent on the model, the style of jimping, and where it is on the knife.

Re: Is it possible we're stretching spyderco a little thin...?

Re: Vanax PM2 Lets Do This!!!

I doubt Spyderco would put a Vanax blade into a non-Salt knife. I'd be very happy with a Vanax blade in the Native 5 Salt, which would also probably be the easiest route for Spyderco to go for a Vanax trial run in a folder. Maybe the OP could convince Abel Fly Reels to commission a run of the PM2 he...

Re: GITD vs Reflective

Now that you mention it, I think I'd rather have reflective than GITD. Tritium or a slot for a trit vial would be best, but also the most expensive. Reflective seems like a cost effective alternative.

Re: 100% of people agree on this one thing!

I like green handles, but a Manix is pretty low on my list of desired Spydies. Non-stainless blades are also very low on my desirability list. So, no, I disagree that we need this knife. Nice try though.

Re: Vanax PM2 Lets Do This!!!

I'm not the expert you're looking for, but here is my take on titanium. It's a fantastic material for many things, but IMHO it's boring as hell used as handle scale material. Now, as they say in my line of work; boring is good. At least it can be, and the thing I find advantageous with titanium in ...

Re: 12 reasons why the Delica is better than the Native

We get it. You love the Delica. It fits your hand better so it's obviously the better knife. The Native fits my hand better, so I must be defective since the inferior design works better for me. All hail Doc Dan's superior genetics.

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

Interesting discussion. Today I carried a Dyad with dual compression locks. Delica size. It has two humped blades with 12mm opening holes. If we make a knife humpless, then the handle has to be wider and sometimes the opening becomes more difficult. If we make the blades humpless with smaller holes...
