Re: Suggestion on how to greatly improve the Manix 2

After finally owning 4 different versions of the Manix 2, I feel like I have a simple suggestion that would make the Manix 2 more attractive and better... :cool: Remove all the jimping from the liners The liner jimping some how makes the knife look more busy and less expensive. And it feels awefull...

Re: Do you prefer Plain edge, Serrated edge, or both?

Again, in my use. Hey, your use matters. I wonder what all explains the difference in experiences... The only thing that jumps to mind is the amount of sand in this state. Of course, it is all possible that my expectations are too high and the steel is performing as expected. It just seems to get d...

Re: Do you prefer Plain edge, Serrated edge, or both?

H1 has amazing properties. And not to belittle LC200N in any way, work-hardened serrations seal the deal for H1’s future at Spyderco, I would think. I wish I could say my experience has proven this, but I find in my use in the garden that SE H1 knives dull very quickly. More quickly than my VG-10 S...

Re: Do you prefer Plain edge, Serrated edge, or both?

I have both edges, but plain gets 90% of carry time. Spyderedge continues to vex me on sharpening and it takes much longer for me to get decent edge. However, I have two old school favorites in SE because to buy in PE would have doubled or tripled the cost, so SE does not keep me from buying somethi...

Re: Urban LW Coyote—realistic look

Maybe if I'd noticed the tip issue BEFORE I reprofiled, I might have sent it back. But it was a PITA to get in the first place (my first one was either lost or stolen in the mail), I didn't want to pay shipping or go through the hassle again. And I fixed both issues. I sincerely hope Maniago does b...

Re: St. Nicks Knives Exclusive hint - Lil Native?

The curves seem to match the Lil Native and not my Para3, PM, or Shaman. Looks to be comp lock and not a back lock, too bad.

Re: Urban LW Coyote—realistic look

So I was just looking at my Urban and noticed this (the tip sticking up just a hair when closed). Not sure if I did this on my last sharpening (I don't think I took off that much of the tip) or if it was always like this and I just didn't notice before. Either way I need to lower the tip a little. ...

Re: Spyderco coffee mug

Sal, Please look at the Tervis company. They make insulated drinkware and they are an U.S. manufacture. They could easily create various Spyderco branded products. I am not affiliated with the company, but I have used the products. Agreed. Tervis now makes stainless insulated tumblers as well. Very...

Re: M390 or Cruwear Delica?

I opted for the Cruwear Delica as well. The M390 has been in my cart twice now, but I just cannot pull the trigger, then the other night I was just about to click and I noticed they were away. They would not process the order until they returned and only after previous orders were processed. Oh well...

Re: PM2 Red G-10 M390 at DLT Trading?!?!

Wow. This whole thing is a big ouch. I was waiting patiently for over a year for this re-release. I sold my Yojimbo sprint to fund the purchase. Stayed up until 6 am to buy one. Waited an hour and 15 minutes for server to come up but I literally could not stay awake; 11 more minutes would have got ...

Re: PM2 Red G-10 M390 at DLT Trading?!?!

30 minutes of limited or no web sales. DLT must be hating life right now.

Also, I guess people in Hawaii can never get these exclusives. Probably all East Coasters snapping them up.

Re: PM2 Red G-10 M390 at DLT Trading?!?!

This is the problem with exclusives. Clearly there is a high demand for this configuration, so after the first exclusive run, it should become a stock item. I can't believe DLT is making any money on this as they are losing sales on everything else while this continues. Pre-orders or a lottery list ...

Re: Ever regretted purchasing a Spyderco model or no?

Other than regretting the excess I have collected over the years, I only regret one Spyderco purchase. It was a good deal impulse purchase on a Positron. It should have checked almost all boxes for me, but nope. However, there is an upside as it forced me to think more about my impulse spending.
