Re: Upcoming Shaman Exclusives??

Yep they've hinted at it a few times recently. The hard use oriented design of the Shaman is just begging for the 4V treatment. Agreed. This and the Micarta Cruwear Shaman will be legendary hard use Spydies. Now we just need some dealer to do a DLC CPM-3V Shaman with OD Green Matte Canvas Micarta f...

Re: Native Chief first and ongoing impressions thread

I really want this knife but am not a big fan of s30v. I’m hoping we get a sprint really soon.

Re: Jumpmaster 2: 3v and PlainEdge

I would absolutely love one in Cruwear.

Do we think there’s any chance of this happening?

Jumpmaster 2: 3v and PlainEdge

Every time I hold and use this knife, I’m reminded at how great it feels. Sold ergos, front and rear guards, lightweight, strong blade grind, and useful blade shape. I was thinking that this would be the perfect platform for a more general survival/tactical/soldier knife. That kind of knife needs to...

Re: Updated shaman sprint steel poll

Respectfully, I do not understand why so many here prefer a steel of the tougher class, i.e. CRUWEAR, 3V, 4V to a steel of the S90V, S110V or M390 class for the Shaman sprint. I thought the main benefit of a tougher steel for folding knives is that it allows for a thinner blade, edge geometry etc. ...

Re: Updated shaman sprint steel poll

Cruwear with micarta would make this knife unstoppable, preferably black or green canvas micarta.

Dark blue or black would be great. I’d also like to +1 for a saber grind.

Re: Which upcoming model is keeping you up at night in anticipation??

FRN Police. Say what? Wishful thinking or actual upcoming model? It’s real. I handled the prototype at Blade. Ohhh. :D Any details? P4, or the old school pointy, swedged Police? I cannot tell you how much I would l give for an old school swedged version with FRN. I feel like it’s a long shot, but i...

I’m really hoping for this to be in FRN, but I doubt it.
Also hoping it’s FRN!

Re: C-60 Ayoob model: It's Way Past Time For An Upgrade

I would absolutely be down for an updated Ayoob. In addition to a sprint of the classic with an upgraded steel, I think a salt version in FRN and LC200n would be amazing. I know the tooling/molding for FRN is pricey and might be a deal breaker for a low volume model, but a leight weight and slim Ayo...

Re: Bring back the Dodo!

I’d love this to brought back but only in a steel that’s not s30v or s35vn. I’d take vg10 if we aren’t going “premium” othwerise lc200n, M4, s110v, hap40 or 20cv would all be awesome.

Re: Saber Ground Endura/Delica Sprint

The ZDP endure was originally saber grind. I bet you could find one of those on the secondary market, if you wanted one. I'd expect Endura/Delica sprints would have to be a Japanese steel, but my personal preference for what you're talking about (a tough, saber ground Endura/Delica sprint) would be...

Re: Saber Ground Endura/Delica Sprint

Very generous offer man, thank you! It is the less pointy, upswept tip. How do you fix that? I can reprofile the spine to remove the hump at the tip. It's a pretty simple job. There are a few guys here who prefer a pointier tip and many have done it. Well that sounds awesome. Anyone have picture by...

Re: Saber Ground Endura/Delica Sprint

You’re right about H1, **** tough for sure and I think even the plain edge holds sharpness longer than people tend to say. Having said that, I just don’t love the blade style. I have a saber ground Endura in vg10, and its great. I also have a few with the Emerson wave, and it’s probably my favorite...

Re: Saber Ground Endura/Delica Sprint

If toughness is a priority for you then maybe look at the Salt. It comes saber ground and H1 is plenty tough. Seems to me the FFG can still handle anything that the pivot can handle but maybe my uses differ. You’re right about H1, **** tough for sure and I think even the plain edge holds sharpness ...
