Re: Change in price of Spydercos in 2020?

Please raise prices so I can get a sprint run knife from the dealer before it goes up the next week 200 over MSRP on Ebay from the serial flippers.

I really like my new light. Great all around light.

Spyderco should make flashlights. I would love to see some real innovation.

Re: designs - evolution - lifting

I was very intrigued by the light and its really good pocket clip so I just ordered one. I have never really found the perfect light for clipping in and maybe this is it.

Re: Folders for food prep?

I literally own the worlds crappiest old kitchen knives.They are very sharp, but very low quality. I have always wanted to buy better knives but never cared enough to do it. Maybe this year.. That said, I use my Spyderco Military a for a lot of quick food prep. Cutting Tomatoes or Apples. Trimming m...

Re: Your Idea of a DREAM HAWKBILL folder?

I know this is a folder thread, but, I would love to see a very large hawk fixed blade with 6 inch blade in Lc200 with aggressive serrations. It would have a heavy blade profile and a thick tip as more of a working knife. Just a thought.

Re: Is this a fake?

No worries everybody. I also feel that way about fakes. Really, if I had known 100% that the knife I bought was a fake, I would never have purchased it. I gambled and lost. All of you have taught me a lot and maybe it will help me to keep from making the same mistake twice. A life long learner. Imp...

Let us know what you think. :)

Cant wait to play with this one. I will probably pick up a thermoplastic sheath for it.

This beauty is literally razor sharp from the factory. The final product turned out extremely top tier.

You must be happy.

Re: Just ordered some Nano Oil *cough snake oil cough*

Make your own oil.

Half motor oil, half ATF.

1/3 Motor oil, 1/3 ATF, 1/3 Marvels Mystery oil.

Go crazy and use synthetic for your blends.

Save thousands on oil....LOL
