I hope we can all remain positive about this sale. Spyderco is doing us a favor by holding it this year at all.
I hope my bank account can stay positive!

Re: Spyderco chinese cleaver (cai dao)?

Fireman, I find it very interesting that you use a cleaver so much. I do a lot of cooking, pretty much all with a chef knife (homemade), boning knife (a custom), and whatever's in my pocket at the time. I don't even own a cleaver! I learned most of my cooking skills in a butcher shop/deli kitchen, a...

Re: River's Edge PM2

I'm naturally partial to earth tones so I think it's quite a handsome color combination, WAY better than black blades. I don't need to blend in at night any more than I need to find my knife in a sandbox, so all things being equal I'll take color over the absence thereof any day! More of this, pleas...

Re: On knife design and the virtue of usability

...only the grossest of differences in cutlery steel chemistry seem to bear out in practical performance. I admit I used to be a rather deliberate collector of steels until I began to realize this. Sure, there's a difference between the corrosion resistance of Super Blue and H1, but all the wear re...

Re: 2020 Seconds Sale - BREAKING NEWS

Online? I don't know. In person? You can get out with one Ladybug if that's all you want. I scrimp and save all year so I can blow a grand at the sale. Just because people are carrying around several thousand dollars worth of knives in their basket doesn't mean they are planning to buy anywhere nea...

Re: 2020 Seconds Sale - BREAKING NEWS

I was joking as well. As for discovering they have $2000 worth of knives in their cart, as a vetern of several in-person sales, you are way, way short. Based on my own basket, I'd say the average shopper has at least $5000 worth tossed in their basket to sort through. I usually have to cut back on ...

Re: 2020 Seconds Sale - BREAKING NEWS

Is a 204p millie too old to show up at this sale? I have absolutely no idea what is safe to assume might be available! I don't think so. I'm pretty sure much older models will be there. I don't know how it works, if they just ration these out bit by bit each year, but I keep being surprised at what...

Hey, don't worry guys. The Spyderco team is a thoughtful bunch and they'll do what they think is best. I don't think it's unreasonable to want an advantage for true fans for something like this, but I wouldn't turn that want into expectation. I for one am just happy I'll get to even come close to th...

Re: C-60 Ayoob Campaign: No I Won't Shut Up

I'll tell you what. Make the handle anything other than black and I'll think about it. That's about the only thing that gets me excited anymore as someone who feels pretty fulfilled in their knife needs. Has there been any handle talk yet?

Hey JD! I don't come around much anymore, but I wanted to chime in just to say how happy I am to see Sal finally granting your wish. As long as I've been here you've been singing the praises of the Ayoob, and I think this is well deserved! I personally probably won't be going after this one as my kn...

Didn't they do something that for the forum knife one year? I don't know how I feel about asking for an advantage. Also, who's to say there aren't flippers lurking among us? They could be RIGHT BEHIND YOU AHHHH!

I've always wanted to go so I really hope this works out! I can't imagine how they can organize it so it's fair for all, but then again I've only been thinking about it for 5 minutes and they've had weeks. Fingers crossed!

Re: Mr. Lester DeAsis passes

Very sad news, and it sounds like you lost a friend, Sal. Very cool you got to know him, but of course not surprising as you are both kings of the industry. I like a lot of Benchmade designs and own a few, and they've driven the industry as much as any company for as long as I've known. I only hope ...

Stretched straight spine sounds like a Police 4 on a Stretch grip.

Meh
I think more like a Military with a Stretch grip. Meh for me as well, though.

Re: Production Cruwear? (or other tool steel)

Cruwear is my favorite steel, and that's coming from someone who no longer likes to participate in the steel debate, as the performance margins are slim and so confounded by heat treatment and geometry. My Cruwear Military somehow really manages to stand out among my modest but diverse collection as...

Re: Paramilitary 2 - CTS-204p Question

Yeah, I think what you have there is a grind line. What most likely happened there is a deeper-than-normal scratch was made by the coarse belt, and the subsequent finer grits failed to mute it. It's not by any means a defect, and certainly nothing to worry about. They are all over my knives, certain...

This! There are a lot of sharp things that you can use to cut stuff, but they're worthless if you can't hold them!
