Re: Lil’ Native Sprints/Exclusives?

I love the lil Native as well. Carried an S30V comp lock from right when they released them. So I naturally jumped on the 4V which is really nice.

Oh there will be more! I think it's more of a juggling act in Golden to fit everything into the schedule.

Re: Siren

I want to leave some feedback here after using my Siren everyday for months. I have noticed that one thing that has been a bit polarizing about the design is the heavier g10 texture. Some folks love it and others are scared it will be a “pocket shredder”. The texture was indeed chosen to provide be...

Re: Siren

I love virtually everything about the Siren except one thing: When gripped hard the back lock easily disengages and though this really doesn't affect function it is irritating since there is some blade movement. Does anyone else experience this? Theoretically if you stab into something with a hard ...

Re: Best steels for serrations?

VG10 works great. Seems to not chip and it sharpens very easily. My first Spydercos (around 1992) were the Rescue models as I was an avid river rat. I abused them believing at the time that I had spent good money on a knife and it should withstand anything. My logic was off, but the knives did hold ...

Every model with textured g10 should have this level of grip in my opinion.
I agree. After carrying mine for a couple of months, the G-10 edginess has smoothed out and now it's just the right amount of texture.

Re: Shaman not staying worn in?

Wash it with hot soapy water, blow it dry and lube it. Sometimes just blasting it with some air will clear the gunk if you don't want to use water.

Re: Rock Lobster 'mini-skinny' chop

Nice! Thank you it looks better than I expected. Sort of like the area around a compression lock where the jimping is.

Re: Anyone else dislike the wire pocket clip?

I generally like them. Some of the longer ones, like on the Siren, do seem to lack lateral strength. On the Lil Native, the clip is short and stiff laterally.

Re: Siren is shipping *alert*

I got mine from DLT, thanks for the tip Lance. My last Spyderco lockback was a mid-90's pinned Rescue that I carried for a decade. The lock was solid but there was something left to be desired as far as the tolerances went. It had a little blade movement in every direction by the time I put it away....

Re: Unbelievable lost and found story. Purchased in 1989, Lost in 1995, showed up in my mailbox in 2020.

I guess there's hope for the Spyderco Rescue that I lost in 1994. Hi Soulspy, In 1982, I was helping to dig out stuck cars in the snow. It was in May 1982 and we had a late snowstorm that really stuck a lot of cars in my area.(10,000' altitude) I had the prototype of the serrated Mariner in my pock...

Re: Spyderco Smock:Technical Showcase, Dud Knife

Never liked the look either. Nothing about it looks ergonomic, but I do like the button compression lock idea. I would like to see some other models sport that feature.

Re: Rivers Edge Cutlery Mystery Exclusive (DLC 10V/Coyote Brown G10 Paramilitary 2)

I have a small chip in the edge that should sharpen out, if you look directly under the spyder logo you can see it like a black pepper flake Is it a chip or a deformation? I dont know the difference of what your asking but there is a small "knick" out of one side of the blade edge, but can be seen ...
