This isn’t a bad deal for a Chinook

Does anyone know if DLT charges for tax on out-of-state purchases?

They don't charge tax for out of state orders and in my experience, they have excellent customer service and shipping.

Question on another brand's heat treat and such

I was wondering how well BRK ran their HT? I have used the same fixed blades for years but I am starting to buy a few again and some of the BRK models caught my eye. What's your general opinion? Let me emphasize that buying a competitors brand won't change one bit whether I buy a Spydie model or not...

Re: First SE Spy27 model will be....?

My bet would be a Native but a SE Manix would be a really, really nice call.

Re: Posters

I think that it is appropriate to point out that a quick read of his bio will tell you that Jot is ethnically Indian, grew up in Boston, and follows a spiritual path of peace. Not exactly creepy. Edit: Thanks Sal. I would buy a reprint of the Khalsa and Critters posters and pay whatever the going ra...

Re: Expand Golden, CO made offerings?

Why try to fix something that isn't broken? The FRN models out of Seki are second to none and reasonably priced. Taichung arguably produces Spyderco's most elite and well constructed knives. If I want a knife to really work for me, there isn't anything better than a Golden made model. I respect Spyd...

Re: Swayback

The way you grip it very close to the blade, leaving the up-swept part of scale and the back end of the clip outside your palm, saves you the pain And you probably doing push-down cuts. Try to grip it hard like that guy in the video I posted above does and the way I tend to do it, with the clip and...

Re: DLT Trading Red/Black Zome Delica in 20CV

I am not a fan of Zome in general and surely the Delica market is pretty much saturated right now? I am not even a Delica guy and I have picked up two or three recently with a lot more out there. This is definitely a pass.

Re: GB Air Return?

I would love to see a return and I would prefer a different color of twill but most of all, please fix the detent. It almost ruins an otherwise excellent knife. I own this knife. What's wrong with the detent? Mine is extremely weak and it always has been. Enough so that I have had it partially open...

Re: Cruwear Endura

Surely, if zdp and k390 warrant production runs, Cruwear does too Yep, I think so also. Everything Cruwear sells pretty quickly and can be difficult to source . I'd buy an Endura ( or two) and an Endela as well as a Stretch. OTOH I'm still waiting on the K390 Endura. This has been pretty late. Very...

Re: If you can only have one Delica...

If I could only keep one Delica it would be the recent KW S90V version. This knife completely flew under the radar of a lot of folks but it is a really nice version with a great steel.

Re: More 52100?

I am pretty vocal about the 52100 Millie being my favorite Spydie and I would love to have a fixed blade as a nice companion piece. A Bushcraft would be pretty cool.

Re: Fluted Ti Military on ebay

It doesn't look right to me as well. I sold mine a while back though. The only two counterfeits that I ever bought were both off of Ebay. To be clear, I am not saying that this isn't legit but it sure looks wrong.

Re: DLT Cruwear purple Para3

It's kind of funny to me that everyone gets so worked up about missing a Para 3. There are more varieties in more versions of steel than any other Spydie that I can think of. There will be other cool knives and there certainly will be more Para 3s. I agree completely that it seems like a lot of fals...
