Re: Sprints

It looks like the flippers will win again. Why? Because what is best for flippers turns out to be best for Spyderco. Small runs with unique features means higher resale prices and at the same time it also means a quick return on Spyderco’s investment. Some of us may want it to be easier to get an ex...

Re: CPM SPY27 steel

I expect there will be a proprietary heat treat to go along with the new steel. I have high hopes for this! :D

Re: Sprints

Well, I don’t feel so alone now after reading some comments about the present state of sprints! Just tossing my 2¢ in, I’d support fewer sprints in larger volume with serial numbers. I think it would be better for Spyderco and customers. Dealer exclusives would remain as they are since the dealer or...

Re: Straight Razor from Spyderco

I have negative interest in straight razors, sorry. IMO, it seems unwise to tool up for what seems like a passing trend. I could be wrong, Sal would know the market better.

Re: Production LC200N

To be clear: I have no personal experience with either LC200N or plain edge in H1. But in the rather short time I have had it till now, I have used my serrated Pac Salt a lot and really did beat on it like on maybe no other folder so far. And in my experience serrated H1 is all that great as they a...

Re: Production LC200N

Despite living in a State mostly surrounded by salt water and fully submerged in humidity, I have never found rust on my s30v blades. So, based on that I would not need or want LC200n on every blade. I’d rather have better edge retention over extreme rust resistance. If there were a steel change, I’...

Re: Delica 4 Sprints / Exclusives / Limited Editions List

Well, I found the first 1 of 13 already. I reviewed the list I put together and thought carefully of which I’d like to hunt down first. Out of all 13 knives on the list, the Damascus are the ones that stood out and called to me the most. There’s just something about the patterned blades that is spe...

Re: FedEx

In my experience, both good or bad, it has been mostly up to the local delivery person and not the company as a whole. Companies set the policy, but it is up to the local driver to actually adhere to them. Eventually the bad ones are weeded out, but after how much trouble is the question. Near Chris...

Re: Why Didn't You Buy A Manix 2 Back Lock?

When it first came out I was interested up until I saw how think it was, then I passed on it. I just looked at the Knifeworks site and they were still in stock at a good price and I passed on it again. I guess I should have grabbed an original back in the day. If the new back lock version had the sa...

Re: Spyderco Retro?

I would like a Caly Jr. with polished micarta scales in any color except black and with a modern steel. Same goes for the C34 Jess Horn II.
Impossible, most likely, but an original style C27p Jess Horn would be awesome.

I endeavor to collect in your style, however I still get distracted by shiny new knives! This year was meant to be low volume year, but it has gotten a bit out of control. :rolleyes: :spyder:

Re: Change Caribbean Scales to Rastafarian colors?

I can’t answer for Sal, but look at pictures of Caribbean fish and you might see the possible inspiration. For me, I would prefer all Salts be yellow.

Re: Change Caribbean Scales to Rastafarian colors?

It turns out people love the current scales and wouldn't dare adding some green and red. Evidently this model is to remain ARBITRARILY named the Caribbean. Lol Nothing arbitrary about it at all. Sal can correct me if I am wrong, but the Salt models are named after Oceans and Seas, not islands, cont...

Big negative for me. I'd rather it were all black or even solid yellow.
