Re: Spyderco and Murray Carter colab...

Those look rad.

I already have family knives, and dedicated daddy only knives. Maybe I can shuffle some from one collection to the other and replace some daddy only knives.

Re: Forum Knife Release Info!

Did you guys get a confirmation email? My card was charged Friday but it seems like I should have gotten a receipt email or something. I checked my email is good. Cant remember if I got one on the last order from SFO.

Re: Interest in Cruwear

Cruwear has managed to become my EDC. Great balance of properties and also tend to cut a lot of fruit with it.

Re: Let me introduce you to Nemesis

Good luck and keep at it.

You got more patience than I do, I run out of patience reprofiling on my extra coarse 10" dmt and it's my fastest stone. Usually straight to the belt grinder for me.

Re: New 20CV Para 2!!!

I got pulled into a meeting, thought it would be quick so I left my phone at my desk. It was 1.5 hours. I had to use the bathroom so bad I went there first when I got out, it wouldn't have mattered. They were gone. Ugh!

Many thanks to Doug Ritter and all those that support kniferights.org. They are getting it done.

Surprisingly neutral article from the post. Thanks for sharing.

Re: Is the Ladybug worth it?

I collected ladybugs for a while. Love them. Wife has the pink one, daughter will get one for Christmas. My daughter beats the heck out of the chinese kershaw she got a couple years ago. I sharpen that thing all the time. She will be a torture test for this ladybug.

Re: Cost Cutting on Sprderco's Higher End Models, Why?

That said, just having a decorative surface layer, when G10 would have made a knife just as functional and (possibly) even more affordable, it cancels out the aesthetic value for some of us. The Tenacious is a good example. For me, the red checker G10 looks even better than the CF laminate. Maybe s...

Re: What's your opinion on customizing your knives?

I mod almost everything. My cars and trucks suffer my tinkering the most, but very few knives have remained stock either.

Re: These videos of knife locks failing.

Interesting, and not surprising Spyderco has developed scientific testing methods for their products. I'm sure since the technology is proprietary we dont get to see but I wonder if the rough ranking order of lock strength has merit. It would not affect my purchasing decisions but it would satisfy a...

Re: 2018 Spyderco Forum Knife! Info & Sign-up

that red/white/back design/inlay reminds me of some clones for some reason... don't like it much :( It does look a little gaudy, but I'm hoping it's just because they photoshopped the design onto a regular black g10 PM2 and it looks better in person. I agree, but I like it. It's drastically differe...

Re: My new Spyderco PM2 Limited Edition

Evil D has it right. Up until this year when I finally stopped the addiction I had every single Para Military and Para Military 2 ever created. Distributor exclusives are not dealer exclusives nor sprint runs. The S35VN PM2 has dried up before but has been made in sufficient quantity to always be ea...

Re: Thoughts on new micarta handle spydies?

The only downside I know of over G10 is stiffness. Micarta seems to flex more so any design that has thin scales that add structural rigidity would be difficult in micarta. I've spent a fortune on custom micarta PM2 scales and always been disappointed due to flex when engaging the lock. I made a bun...

Yep, 500 pieces total run, is what I read.
I didn't think they did sprint runs that small, or exclusives. Thought minimums were 800-1200 with an option for another batch of the same size. That's almost as low as the cpm154/s90v composite PM2.
