Re: What steel balances attributes best?

For me it's hap40. Gets sharp, stays sharp, cuts everything, and I haven't gotten it past a light gray even when I try to force a patina. Put it in a fixed blade so I can retire every other knife I own.

Re: How about a hypothetical?

Eric, no question. Sal would give me the knife he liked most at the moment. Eric would give me the knife that best fit my ergonomics and use. Just how they each design and get excited about knives.

Re: Research ENDURA Gen3

One particular auction site, the one that rhymes with Tree Day, has many older Enduras and Delicas pretty regularly. In fact, I'm likely going to pick one up myself.

Re: Permanent damage that you've actually done to a knife?

Permanent, no. Seriously chipped edges that were annoying to sharpen out, yes.

I think Spyderco will reveal that it now plans to make heroin because y'all are hardcore knife junkies!

Re: S35vn on the Tenacious...what does it mean?

Fit and finish are good enough for me on the Chinese Spyderco line. The big advantage here is the edge to handle ratio and the ergonomics, both of which are great. I'll be happy to pick one up in S35VN. To me, it's worth it over the ergos and shorter blade on the Native. And I have owned a lot of Na...

Re: Reveal 6

MULE TEAM™ 31 CPM® S45VN! More mules! Both Green Lc200N Pac Salt and Atlantic look awesome, and the blacked out manbug warnie will be mine. I guess that will be 4 knives on the Christmas list along with the new CBN benchstone. The Colorado PM2 looks really cool too! How did we go from MT28 (SPY27) ...

Re: Reveal 6 Live!

I want all of them, but I'm afraid that I'll buy an S35VN Tenacious and never need another knife again.

Re: Would you buy a Catcherman 2?

Absolutely. I had one of the USN toxic green Catchermen and I loved it. Would be in for a plain edge in a stainless steel. Honestly, I think this would be great in VG-10 for the kitchen or LC200N for a salt knife.

Re: BHQ Jade M4 Series Poll - What next???

So far they've picked mostly Golden made models for the Jade/M4 run, but they did do the Lum Tanto which is Seki made. They've also revived a few discontinued models, so why are we limiting ourselves to existing models when we can remake some of the greats!? Give me a Terzuola Starmate or a Phoenix,...

Re: Renegade sprint run?

I used to EDC a Blackhawk and would love to see either (or both!) as a sprint run. Maybe updated to a full flat grind, tip up or down carry, and CPM-154 or PD1.

Re: Seconds Sale 2020

One thing about about the Seconds Sale that was touched in is how much the knives on offer are handled. I honestly dunno how that would be restricted, and if it’s not Sal and company will go broke sanitizing each knife after handling. This was my exact thought. It would be easy enough to do the sal...

Re: St Nicks Native 5 4V Lightweight

I'm excited for this one. I got the Neversummer Native when it dropped, but I couldn't look past the combo edge and the giant logo. Also I don't get coating stainless blades. This basically solves every issue I had with that knife!

Re: Spyderench

Sal, quit propping up the secondary market and just make us more spyderenches!

Whitey, try rotating the driver. The point might stick out better in a different orientation. My wrenches have all been different levels of finicky, but each has had a sweet spot.
