Re: What's up with Spydiechef's lockstick?

My Spidiechef doesn't have any lockstick and it's pre CQI. Not really notorious unless you get all your info from YouTube vs. reality. I've owned/handled 5+ Chefs (including pre-CQI, first CQI, second CQI, and the blue anodized exclusive) and all have had lockstick, some pretty bad. I realize this ...

Re: As a fan, it's sad Spyderco isn't adressing the slysz bowie problem.

"This is not a 400 dollar knife!" - Nick Shabazz https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eP_64k1tdkY Just make a Slysz Bowie 2 in a slightly better steel with a hardened steel lockbar insert for an appropriate $350 and all this madness of greed and idiocy will resolve itself. The original sold for $300. Be...

Re: Cruwear Micarta PM2 Full liners

Is everyone as excited as I am to see the new full skeletonized liner construction for this model? Eric shows it off a little and talks about it in the knifecenter video. Specs list it at 0.1oz lighter too. I can’t wait to get one in hand. :spyder: I'm not sure about the weight. Spyderco's listing ...

Re: As a fan, it's sad Spyderco isn't adressing the slysz bowie problem.

Man, I don't know. This is really one of those thing that I can't really wrap my head around. If the model sell well, Spyderco is going to keep it in the line up. Gayle Bradley 2 was introduced in like 2016, and it is still in 2021 catalogue. I guess the sales are ok enough to keep it. Slysz Bowie ...

Re: As a fan, it's sad Spyderco isn't adressing the slysz bowie problem.

I have a slightly different take on this, I think the current demand for the slyz bowie is a result of Spyderco offering so many desirable models at the same time. The Slyz Bowie is one that I, and alot of people I am guessing, wanted to buy but missed it. We just assumed, being such a great knife,...

Re: How Do Your Factory Seconds Look?

I sent the Tenacious LW pictured in the first post to a friend. He really likes the beefyness of the blade and has made it his new EDC. When I asked him if he could spot any flaws he said, “Made in China?” :cool: Proud to be an American until I read stuff like this. That seems a little overdramatic...

Re: How Do Your Factory Seconds Look?

Mine are all in excellent condition, wouldn't have been disappointed if I bought these as firsts. One Maxamet has a slightly more acute edge on the clip side and the other one might have a slight brown discoloration near the tip (the last 1/8" or 1/16") but those are really minor things. The action ...

Did you get an email confirmation yet? I didn’t get a confirmation page or email but my card was charged so I assume it went through alright.

Re: 2020 Seconds Sale - BREAKING NEWS

Interesting thread.. I’ll say I’m very grateful Spyderco is doing this sale online as it hasn’t been feasible for me to go in the past. I’m really stoked at the chance to participate. Thanks!! :) One suggestion: if at all possible, I think it would go a long way to making everything run smoother if,...

Re: Knifejoy factory anodized Spydiechef

Thank you for those pictures! Would you say that is the true color? I love that dark blue. Mine should be here Wednesday. Looking forward to my first Spydiechef. Yep I think the color in the pictures is pretty true! The scales are titanium so the color dulls as oil from your skin gets on it, but it...

Re: Knifejoy factory anodized Spydiechef

Just received mine, Spyderco knocked it out of the park. The blue anodization looks perfect and this is the first chef I've had with little-to-no lock stick out of the box (not sure if anodizing helped at all with that?). Also amazing action and probably the sharpest factory edge I've seen (it actua...

Re: Tanto PM2 Support Thread

Blade HQ said that more PM2 Tantos were expected in the future. I sure hope that this is true because this is easily one of the best looking Spyderco folders. Yeah, it sucks that Blade HQ (or anyone) has the exclusive on this model and that it’s not a general release. Spoke to BladeHQ, they have no...

Re: Knifeworks Exclusive CTS-204P Delica 4

That DLT Cruwear Delica will definitely be a hit, but that seems like a tough price to swallow when comparing it to this one, especially when being dropped so close to each other. The price difference between the two is only $4.27. $89.95 for the KW Delica and $94.22 for the DLT Delica. Where did y...

If their website acts is anything like the PM2 Cruwear release, I'll gladly pass. Pretty sure the special ed 3rd graders were running the website that day. If you want one you’ll probably be able to get one at release without much trouble. The Delica exclusives almost never sell out in a couple min...
