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...

Re: Left handers: Kapara?

My issue with it will possibly be with the wire clip, worst clip made imo. Hotspots, and moves around in use. I’m hoping it’s far enough back on the handle that it’ll be o.k. If not I’ll make an insert for it like I did on my Ikuchi. I know what you mean with the wire clips, Spyderg. Overall, I fin...

Re: Left handers: Kapara?

I use smaller knives and write with my left hand, and I find it fine. I've noticed some leftys have different responses to the compression lock. I personally don't feel hindered by it at all, operating it with my thumb, and I won't even consider buying a knife that has a right handed lock bias anym...

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

How do you like the Free? I’ve got a Charge, MUT, Juice and a little keychain type I can’t remember the name of. The Charge in particular is a solid tool that I’ve put through some heavy use. I carry the Juice a lot for days when I feel I’m likely to get recruited to do some small jobs at my moms a...

I’ll let you know in a couple days. Mine should be here Monday. I’ve yet to have issues with a compression lock. Mind you I don’t have trouble with any “right handed” lock. My issue with it will possibly be with the wire clip, worst clip made imo. Hotspots, and moves around in use. I’m hoping it’s f...

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

Along with a wallet, keys, and a Fenix LD02, and my main Spydie (RFP; recently an S90V Shaman), I carry a Manbug Salt (RRP) and a Victorinox Spartan (LFP). Depending on the day, a Leatherman Free P4 rides on my belt or in a shoulder bag. https://i.imgur.com/zi67E1Q.jpg How do you like the Free? I’v...

Recovered the knife in bocote. Used some of the bocote and a piece of scrap fire wood from a family trip to make myself a ring.

Re: I started physical therapy

Been through a fair bit of physio myself. It helped me avoid knee surgery and determined that I required shoulder surgery. Also after a serious hand injury, I went through multiple surgeries and years of physio. I don’t go anymore but have to do my own physio at least three times a day or I can bare...

Re: recommend a spyderco to a knife enthusiast

Thing is, if it’s for a knife enthusiast, he or she had probably looked at and considered at least the current Spyderco lineup. Unless you know for sure they’ve been drooling over one in particular it might not be the best to choose for them. On the other hand if you know they’re types really well y...
