Re: Crunch-Time Hardware? Spyders For Trying Times?

No change here, my Kapara is holding its own. Why, I just cut some twine with it today to secure my tomato plants to stakes, so it's holding the line against saggy tomato plants! :cool:

Re: Spyderco Rebrand Concept

I am gonna be the odd man out. I haven’t really shared this but I don’t love Spyderco’s logo much. I live in the heart of Lyme disease country. I know more people who have had Lyme around here than who haven’t. If you spend time in the woods, and i spend a lot of time in the woods, you hate ticks. ...

Re: REX45 Para 3 Lightweight

I'm sure they hope you'll end up buying more than just the one you originally hoped for. It would be smart for them to capitalize on FOMO. Well they kind of got me on that one. Although I purchased from another vendor, I jumped on the Native 5 LW earlier this week because I wasn't sure I'd get one ...

Re: What was your first Spyderco?

Mine was a gently used Native in 440v. Utterly smooth action, fit my hand like it was made for it.

Re: Knifeworks Exclusive Para 3, CTS-204P/Forrest Green G10

Looks great! If I had not already purchased a Manix 2 and LW Native in REX45 I would have grabbed one of these this morning. I love that green color, but not enough to spend the money after so much outlay this month. More for y'all!

Re: Serration Disappointment

There are lots of reasons for the serrations being ground on the “presentation” side. Not least of which is that that keeps the knife (when being used by a right hander) from drifting into the body of the user or the hand holding the material. ... :spyder: Thank you for that clear explanation. That...

Re: Are sprint runs too small?

I hope not (too) off topic, but honestly: I never understood why a knife is more desirable just because it is produced in a limited run...? Sure, I maybe get the "thrill of the chase" and maybe the momentarily relief if one has something in hand of which they were uncertain to get it at all in the ...

Re: Fake Rubicon? now sold

There are no assisted knives made by Spyderco as far as I know, so that is the first clue. The Chinese language stick on the box is the second clue.
As a reminder, please always use the "Report this item" link on each listing of these fakes.

My Kapara has been getting all of the pocket time lately. So many good options, so I choose by not choosing.

Re: Back locks with edges going all the way to the handle

I think my words might be misunderstood. I'll just quote Sal here "For my personal designs, there are some things, especially in back-locks, that I am not willing to give up. I battled this for years. "

Re: iPhone cases

In addition to the above brands, Nomad makes a series of high quality cases for iPhones and other Apple products. When they have sales the deals are very good. I give them a strong recommendation. https://nomadgoods.com/

Re: Back locks with edges going all the way to the handle

They are, I am the first to be with you on that! (just see my post to which Sal actually did reply here... ;) ) I know, and no offense meant to you or others. However, I sometimes get frustrated with all the comments and ideas that Sal "should make such and such" or change some feature he designed ...
