Re: Spyderco BM Proper Killer!

Thinking about opening, some traditionals, even though they have nicks or long pull grooves, can be pinched and opened easily. I would see how this might work with elongated double dents to keep the closed blade height lower. And, anything over 3” would benefit from a lanyard/fob hole too.

Re: Spyderco BM Proper Killer!

To stay with the traditional idea, one-hand opening would not fit.

Re: Spyderco BM Proper Killer!

That Micarta is sweet. And, they like good with and without bolsters I have to agree. I’m still not in favor of more expensive steel to begin.

Re: Spyderco BM Proper Killer!

We can discuss a higher end Slipit. Maybe something like Carbon fiber, Micarta or? Does the steel make a difference? Hi Michael, I'm not interested in making a nail nick model. We can discuss one hand open, like the UK, or two hand open, like the Double Dents? sal I like the double dents very much....

Re: Spyderco BM Proper Killer!

Traditional slip joints are characterized by being non-locking, clipless and two hand opening. Selection of blade and cover materials are open but those three other criteria define a traditional design. And I think the traditional designs are driving the new interest in slip joint knives. I have a n...

Without specifying the criteria (definition of “best”) this is the same as “ what’s your favorite”.

Re: What models would you like to see with the side button compression lock like the Smock

I think far too many so-called requirements have been piled on the locking folding knife since the unexpected swift rise of social media. For example, the Buck 110 never suffered from the demands we now see applied to folding locking knives. The original purpose of the lock was to keep the blade ope...

Re: Is it time for the PM2 to come with tip up carry from the factory?

“ Most people on forums and YouTube change the PM2 to tip up.“

We would only know this to be true with evidence which is not only lacking but impossible to find.

Re: Your Thoughts of an Ideal Companion Blade?

So, still thinking about it and I still appreciate all the feedback. Give the Enuff some thought, Michael. You can cant the sheath such that it can be worn on either side of your belt-buckle (or onto the knot in your sweats?) for a very easy draw (and clicky return) from a sitting position (neck-ca...

Re: Is it time for the PM2 to come with tip up carry from the factory?

For the record, it comes tip down because that's Eric Glesser's preference for the PM2. The designer's preference is actually what typically determines the "factory" clip position. Stay safe, Mike I am comforted to know that at Spyderco it is policy to respect the opinion of the designer in prefere...

Re: Your Thoughts of an Ideal Companion Blade?

Michael, I guess considering the cause of the pocket opening might help, if you can choose a knife that minimises that cause or is resistant to it. It seems in most pocket opening incidents that clothes fabric is put under sideways pressure, perhaps even pressed into the spydie hole a little, which...

Re: What models would you like to see with the side button compression lock like the Smock

You know, one hears many things. But to say that a compression lock disengaged by gripping too hard (because bearing down does not matter)is rather far fetched in my opinion

Re: What models would you like to see with the side button compression lock like the Smock

At this point I would say none. The Smock has not been in circulation long enough to get some solid feedback. I tend to favor Walker liner locks and a compression locks but under normal usage I may only open and close a knife two or three three times a day so the lock in terms of closing or disengag...
