Re: What Spyderco is in your pocket today??

32D1994E-58B9-42E3-954B-9F39D0E55B3D.jpeg Is that a reground Almagram?! I like! I knew before I got it that I would be changing the blade shape. I looked at it and saw a clip point asking to come out! You cant tell in this pic but I also took a few mm off the handle allowing it to open as a slow ro...

Re: What "Other" is in your pocket???

Real Steel Luna. Only just got this yesterday but I really like it. Nice thin blade stock, ground super thin behind the edge. Light but snappy and smooth action. Super modern “traditional”.

Re: Talking about your traditional knives

So this one doesn’t really qualify as a traditional to me, but it’s a slipjoint so maybe. Real steel Luna, titanium handle, n690 and a pocket clip. Thin blade stock, ground super thin behind the edge. Really liking it so far.

Re: Talking about your traditional knives

The modern traditionals definitely are nice, I particularly like the modern detent system Viper employed on the CK EZ Open. They managed to be thoroughly modern while still keeping a quite traditional look. 3E43A791-B8E9-47D2-AFAD-0BCB93005680.jpeg Still, a GEC or other actual traditionally made sli...

Re: The Smock...

I decided to give the Smock a few days with the deep carry I picked up for my PM2. (For my hand the deep carry on the PM2 is more comfortable). Now it definitely isn’t as comfortable on the Smock, but it’s not terrible so I left it on and got another for my PM2. I might eventually swap back to the f...

Re: EDC prybar

I’ve posted about this one before, but happy to again! My K’roo “Chunky Drunk”, I emailed him my idea, then after a little refinement this was the result. It’s my most used tool. Sooo handy.

Re: Talking about your traditional knives

Just picked up a GEC 29 in bloodwood. Gotta love an awl, so handy! Anyways, this one’s special for a reason other than being a great knife. You see it has the cloud shield, GEC is calling it a keyhole shield but I’ve always called it and seen it called a cloud. The cloud is of significance because w...

Re: Slipjoint mod Para 3

If I had a no lock restriction where I lived I’d be all over this idea! At first I was thinking it would be better to just incorporate the idea into a new blade for those places. But then I thought this is even better as Spyderco could send them out with it in place thereby complying with local laws...

Re: Knives I wish I had bought two of

Shh, don’t give away the secret! :p It’s too much of a secret apparently, they seem to have a lot of knives folks are looking for. I’ve bought from them before and likely will again. None of the knives mentioned are one I’m interested in, so might as well help boost business so they’ll still be aro...

Re: Knives I wish I had bought two of

My regret is the Lil'Temp. Had a chance to rectify it later too, but passed. Just can't justify the Sebenza level secondary prices on them now. If you’re talking about the lilTemp3, available at Blades Canada. I sound like I work for them,lol! But really folks, they’ve got a lot of harder to find k...

Re: Knives I wish I had bought two of

I wish I would have bought 2 Cruwear PM2s. Knifecenter has done repeat runs of cruwear pm2s and para3s, haven’t they? Sometimes the cruwear options can be had reasonably on epay. I scored a very nice Millie in cruwear that had dyed scales but was otherwise very nice. I’ve put more wear on it than i...

Re: What Spyderco is in your pocket today??

Put these new Putnam grooved micarta scales on the Manix. They do look nice, and have a different feel to them...but I honestly don't think micarta is all it's been made out to be. I think based on all the hype I've seen and the cult following for the soon to be released Crucarta Shaman...I was exp...

Hindsight is 2020. There are some knives but I wish I had bought two of when they were still in production. One is the Manix 2 back lock and the other is the urban light weight K390.

What knives do you regret not buying a second?
Sent you a pm about somewhere that still has both in stock.

Re: Left handers: Kapara?

Just got it today. Lefty closing super easy, there’s enough handle to grip allowing for thumb on the lock, flick, (or drop shut) closing. The clip is indeed far enough back as to not give me a hotspot. As a matter of fact, due to clip position and handle shape, this is the only wire clipped knife th...
