Re: Dyad II or New Concept Double Blade Folder?

Designed for the hand not the eye ( I'm sure I got that wrong as a quote , but the idea is the same ) was an ethos that was touted by Spyderco in days gone by . I'm not being nasty or looking for an arguement , but the Dyad is the most unergonimic Spyderco that I've ever owned , used and held . I lo...

Re: Dyad II or New Concept Double Blade Folder?

The Dyad is a conundrum. The first Spyderco I ever bought was a Grey Dyad Sprint . It was to big to heavy and its ergonomics were horrible , I soon sold it and Im just happy I persisted with he Spyderco brand because everything else I have purchased has been perfect . Then a year or two ago I cam ac...

Re: How did ZDP189 go from a stainless steel to carbon steel?

I would really like to know if there is a difference between the ZDP used on Caly 3 and 3.5 knives and the Delica - Endura line ? I have an old Caly 3.5 that I bought secondhand and it arrived with a slight patina to the ZDP . Over a period of time the patina escalated to a heavy patina which helped...

Re: zdp-189 Delica...any good?

I rate the ZDP Delica highly . The fact that you can get it as a production run and not a sprint is a great move on Spydercos behalf in my opinion . I carried a ZDP Delica exclusively for many months before venturing into the world of alternative Delica steels ( superblue , hap40 ) In all honesty th...

Re: FRN Worker ?

I've been contemplating this idea ( straight from the horses mouth ) that the Worker concept is outdated and run its race . After much contemplation I think that the problem with the most recent incarnations of the Worker is that it forgot who it was and where it was from . Forget G10 and all the be...

Re: Desert Tan FRN

I love the color of my Tan Delica Kahr , the only thing that stops me using it more is the Sabre grind which Im not a fan of .

Re: VTOKU Sprint Run

Anyone else experienced this steels tendency to create a wire edge while sharpening ?
Not a big deal to fix , just different than my other Delica steels , Hap40 , Superblue , ZDP189

Re: Down to the Essentials

Even though I own a number of different Spyderco's I've narrowed my choice down to one knife for 99% of my carry .
I just happen to own of few of that one knife to choose from .

Easy.

I chose the locks I do because they are the only ones I find do a good enough job keeping the knife securely closed, while the others only do a good job at keeping the knife locked open in my experience.
Absolutely the best answer
