Yes,

Very close to an Urban. Different maker and probably different materials.

Re: Delica conundrum

If the ever-delayed performance Delica ships, we will get real world feed back on popularity and durability. Maybe this quarter?

Re: So what is the reason for no Combo edges in the salt lineup?

I still say this is the combo edge we all need, whether you realize it or not :winking-tongue https://live.staticflickr.com/887/39359510240_13bc74c3cb_z.jpg PE at the heel where hard carving cuts happen, SE in the middle where material would normally slip off the blade, and a bit of PE at the tip f...

Re: What Spyderco is in your pocket today??

I am so boring. For weeks it has been a Rex45 Manix 2 with Rockscale Ti scales. So great that I might have to move everything else along. Scary thought... Don't know what's wrong with me, but I'd actually love to see a pic of that extremely boring knife... :smirk Screen Shot 2023-01-26 at 9.48.00 A...

Re: Kopa satus (the new Caly 2.5?)

It just did not sell well enough fro Spyderco to keep it in the line up. I'm not sure why, maybe due it being originally released when the market was looking for massively overbuilt folders? With the resurgence of smaller blades these days maybe we will see a re-release. Hi Jim, The Kopa model sold...

Re: Friction Stir Processed D2 Thread

Is it normal to see the HRC lower at the top and lower edge of the blade vs the middle? Or am I reading your list incorrectly? No it's not normal, and yes you are reading that correctly. Like I said, it was a reject. I am thinking that the steel was positioned impropperly when the blank was cut out...

Re: Native Chief blade play when closed?

My S90V Native 5 had the same issue and it took a fair bit of fine tuning to get the looseness out while keeping the blade from being too tight. It is a very slight turn to go from too tight to loose. I did put thread locker (222 Purple) on the pivot screw and once I got it tuned, I left it alone o...

Re: Ergos: Stretch vs. PM2

I would choose the Stretch 2 over the PM2 for the reasons you mention, plus it has a back lock which I find to be far more comfortable over the comp lock.

Look at a product from Zerust. Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor (VCI). These are available in variety of forms including little plastic tabs you can pop into the bag.

Re: Micarta Street Bowie, Please?

It would depend on how long the tang is as to whether or not it would be practical to put another handle material on the model. Hidden tang knives have been a thing for a long time. Someone will need to sacrifice theirs for science and stuff and cut the molded handle off! :grin-smiling-eyes Yeah, I ...

Re: Dare I say… DF2?

Dalton was correct, "Opinions vary."

I EDC a Manix 2 most days, so the P3 is on the smaller side for me. Several here carry even larger blades as their EDC!

The DF2 and 3 are really great choices, however.

I did way back when it was first mentioned by Sal. He thought the name was too long! We can only try, right? Maybe a Forum version with More Than Enuff on the blade for those of us with the same thought?
