Re: Is a DLC coated pm2 with k390 steel and green canvas micarta basically the quintessential folding knife?

My vote for the quintessential folding knife would be an uncoated Military in either K390 or Maxamet.

Re: Website has Ark SE in stock and some other hard to find models

I have bought from the before with no issues but it has been several years since I placed an order.

Re: You’re all sneaky keeping the REC manix 2 to yourselves

if you're really impatient, there seem to be a lot of people on the rec fb page that are already done with theirs. i don't get why so many people would be hyped enough to buy the knife out from other people just to turn around and sell it. it's a great knife and i'm not letting mine go. People get ...

Re: Ranking Sprint Runs? Recent & Past models?

The 52100 Military is hands down my favorite Sprint. It is is my favorite knife of any model or any brand and one of only two knives that I own a back up for.

Gunting Model?

I noticed an old model Gunting with a LEO trainer for sell on BF (I am not the seller). I have not owned this knife and I am not sure that I have even seen pics of very many. Given the odd design and that it had a LEO only trainer offered with it I am wondering how this knife was/is used for SD. Wha...

Re: HH UKPK drop point exclusive. NOW DROPPED

I got a HH UKPK DP as a warranty replacement a while back, (backspacer broke on a HH UKPK) and while it's a perfectly good knife I don't really see any benefit to the shape over the leaf. To all those who prefer the DP, what is it that makes you prefer it over the leaf? Basically what Skeeg11 said....

Re: DLT Exclusive OD Green G10 / DLC S90V PM2 Available March 30th @ 11:00 AM CST

I am not a huge fan of the PM2 but this is the version that I probably regret selling the most. I will try to get one but I wonder if this will be an exclusive free for all or if there will actually be time to buy one since it’s a re-release?

Re: Your value line knives

I don't think that it's officially in the value line but I love the Cat. For my tastes and needs I can't think of a better value in the Spyderco line up at any price point.

Great pictures. I was critical of the knife earlier but I like it a lot more seeing your guys shots of it in the wild.

Re: BladeOps Elmax Shaman

Kind of a random question for this thread but I wonder why the KW Shaman and this one are gone but the latest BHQ version is still around? I don't think that it's cost alone.

Re: HH UKPK drop point exclusive

It looks like I will be joining the HH newsletter community. My other HH UKPK is really excellent quality and a great EDC. I prefer their G10 version by miles over the standard FRN/FRCP. It just feels more solid and higher quality to me. I have wanted a drop point version of this knife for quite a w...

Re: S45VN Stonewashed Military?

Welcome to the forum! Hang around and you will find a lot of friendly and very knowledgable people here. I am another big fan of the Military but the only S45VN that I have is a BRK and I honestly don't see a lot of advantages over S30V. Of course Spyderco may have their own special twist on it thou...

Sal, is this the same maker as the Caly 3.5? It is really good to see them back up and running.

That explains the Moki style clip placement. That's a nice nod to family tradition.

Got nothing to do with blade hq they don’t owe you any explanation.. nothing they can do about it, you paid they shipped, done deal.

Re: Spyderco 2022 Lists: Delivered & Upcoming

They can basically sell as many of these as they had made. I wonder how large the run is? I would like to get one but I really don't want to play the 'refresh' game over and over.

Re: Triple B/Spyderco Folder

This is a rare instance that I wish that I had a chance to pre-order a knife just to lock one in, sight unseen and details unknown. I have a strong feeling this is going to be an amazing knife.
