Re: Smooth Black G10 slipped

I couldn't get on board with the smooth G10 on the Cruwear PM2. I ended up putting micarta scales on it. This was a few years ago ;)

Re: Military 2. What exactly is going on?

I highly prefer the PM2s grip, no groove there because it's on the back of the knife for the Compression Lock. I never enjoyed that liner lock cutout on the Military, always thought it felt off in my hand.

Re: Interest in Manix 2 with CPM REX45

I think LW FRCP Burnt Orange would look really cool, especially next to the HAP40 siblings from Seki, Japan.

Re: Your favorite sprint/exclusive released after join-date PLUS BONUS QUESTION

After I joined and learned about the Smurf PM2, I waited years for the 2nd release. It was worth waiting and not paying $400 on the secondary market. I instead spent that amount on buying 2 knives from the 2nd drop. The madness of hunting down discontinued models from years before I joined led me to...

Re: Compression Lock Military 2 Steel Poll

I am very pumped for this Military 2. Thank you so much Spyderco for listening to our insistent requests. If this model was released in 154CM, I would buy it without hesitation. A Comp lock Military has been my dream knife for years now. Though since we're asking for some sweet super steel, I voted ...

Interest in Manix 2 with CPM REX45

CPM REX 45 has been the most elusive blade steel (for me and I'm sure plenty other people). I see the Manix 2 as an opportunity to spread some more of this fabled steel to Spyderco fans; the first 3 models released are overpriced on the secondary market, and many aren't willing to pay $300 for a PM2...

Re: Military 2. What exactly is going on?

As someone who has had plenty of Millies over the years and carried them a lot, I can't wait for a tip up version. Tip down just sucks, and no one can argue that because its a personal preference; if you prefer tip down, thats cool too, but I'd never try to get you to change your opinion. As far as ...

Re: Spyderco 2019 Lists: Delivered & Upcoming

The Itamae Murray Carter chef knives with SuperBlue and burled G10 are in stock at GPK. The prices are heavier than I expected, still I'd like to get my hands on one eventually.

Re: Didn't realize how tiny it BEE

Good Lord! That's what it is compared to a MANBUG!?!?! I'm reminded of the book/movie Dune, where the Bene Gesserit use a tiny needle (poison tipped) called the gom jabbar to vanquish their foes. I think the gom jabbar is bigger than the McBee lol The Water of Life... Shai Hulud... Crysknives Bring...

Re: Which Spyderco for prying with tip?

So I was watching Forged in Fire the other day, and the judges performed a tip strength test; simply jamming it in some wood and torquing the blade to see if the wood would give or the tip. Was feeling too adventurous and whimsical earlier tonight and performed the same test on my S110V Millie. Here...

Radioactivespyder posted a pic of one of his Lil Natives with the Ti scales. It looks really nice!
It took me a while to realize that he posted it on IG, I'm too lazy to ever login there. I see he also installed a RGT clip too, and it looks pretty sweet.

Lil Native Flytanium scales

Check out these Flytanium aftermarket scales for the Lil' Native.

I was looking for some Manix scales but couldn't resist upgrading my Lil' Native; since I'm waiting for a Sprint to come out (S90V and CF!?)
Will post some pics when these arrive and get installed.

Re: What's wrong with S30V?

I like M390 and Cruwear as much as anyone, but S30V won't stop me from buying a knife. I picked up the S30V Delica and Dragonfly and they're awesome knives. I think its a good standard for knife steel, and honestly with normal use don't see much difference between any of the stainless super steels, ...
