Re: Your Thoughts of an Ideal Companion Blade?

I would say a serrated edge companion. There are times when I have to cut cord or rope and that would be handy.

Re: Super happy with my New Mantra 2

So the picture of the M2 might lead you to believe it's a bigger knife. Even so, I think the M2 is a good (even optimal) size for pocket carry. The handle length is about the same as a Delica, but the blade more slender and a bit longer. More of a slicer for sure. I love the looks of a titanium ston...

Thanks for the tip; I just ordered one. And I still have my Chaparral. Actually, I would also like a Chaparral light weight eventually.

What's Your Most Abused Spyderco?

For us it's a poor little VG10 dragonfly in the kitchen drawer. It's always sticky from tape adhesive opening boxes. It's been used to break down boxes with staples, pry things, etc. The kitchen drawer beater!

I have both models. Excluding the clip, they are identical in width.
Do you have a preference for one over the other if I may ask?

Blade HQ lists both the Compression Lock and backlock as .44”
Thanks! I like the wire clip that comes with the compression lock model so that's the direction I will probably take.

Re: Why linerless?

I bought a Native 5 in G10 and it was advertised as having liners but I got shipped the linerless version. At first I was disappointed, but after some use, I will have to agree with those that say liners are not required and add weight. I will also say I like the proud liners on the Manix 2 (i.e. th...

Is the Lil Native Compression Lock Handle Thicker than the Back Lock version?

I was looking at both and was wondering if the compression lock version of the Lil Native has a thicker handle than the back lock version? I don't have a local store to go to and compare.

Re: s30v spyderco's acceptable

Heck - VG-10 is good enough for me. I buy "super" steels to collect, not because they are required. One exception would be H1 for for more caustic environments.

Re: What was your first Spyderco?

Caly 3.5 with black G10 handles and VG-10 steel.

But the first Spyderco that I handled was a Manix 2 and that's when I decided I liked Spyderco as a brand. I have a couple of Manix 2's as well.

Re: When will we see the Caly 3.5 Lightweight?

So the Caly 3 and 3.5 are thin enough that G10 I think works well, but FRN does have its advantages and would probably be popular.

Re: Let's Get Serious: G-10 Handles Are Just Hard To Beat For EDC uses

’ll get an frn para3 soon and I doubt I’ll ever carry my g10 model anymore. I would REALLY like a PM3 in FRN :) I see a parallel here between G10 vs FRN and wood vs synthetic stock rifles. Wood is more attractive, but synthetic is way more practical. I think this is exactly the case with G10 vs FRN.

Re: Let's Get Serious: G-10 Handles Are Just Hard To Beat For EDC uses

I think G10 is classy, and I like G10 for that reason. But isn't FRN always going top be thinner? That would really benefit a knife like the PM3 that's kind of fat.
