Re: Cara Cara 2 sized hawkbill?

No problems! I've got a Hawkbill and a Meadowlark G10 and gave my dad a Meadowlark LW as well. He lost my first Spyderco, a plain Dragonfly, so I figured he needed a good knife, just not an expensive one. I think that sums up the Byrd line: good enough, expensive enough. I have switched scales arou...

Re: Cara Cara 2 sized hawkbill?

Agreed. Funny but I'm actually more excited about some of the potential Byrd offerings this year than the Spyderco ones. Hi Bemo, is there anywhere that shows Byrd new releases for the year? Thanks mate. We should see Wharncliffes in all sizes! Check out the wharncliffe thread :) Cant wait mate, th...

Re: Byrd Wharncliffe

Yeah, I'm really looking forward to these! I can't figure out which one to test first. I'm leaning towards a Harrier since I'm very happy with the Endela SE right now.

Re: Who wants more BBL and BAL ?

YES. The CBBL is my second favorite locktype, close behind the mid backlock. Strong detent, and can be operated in multiple ways - see my post and vids here https://forum.spyderco.com/viewtopic.php?t=87806 for example (among other methods like many do with a backlock (dropping the choil on a finger...

Re: Pick my first Spyderco fixed blade, for EDC

Just for your info: As far as I know Sal is working on a kind of "more-than-Enuff", I think essentially an Enuff with a 4" blade and thinner blade stock. I'm so curious as to how this is going to look. I've looked at the spear point Enuff so many times but when you see the weight and 4mm thick vg10...

Re: Interest in Front Flipper by Spyderco?

i would like a front flipper by spyderco in a smaller size like a gb air front flipper. or along the lines of a kizer feist. there is also a mod you can do to a lil native that makes it a front flipper too. I can't believe I didn't think of the GB Air! That would be a great opportunity to make as a...

Have any of you thought about acid washing your knives to protect them a bit extra?

Re: Interest in Front Flipper by Spyderco?

I have two folding knives that aren't Spydercos and one of them is the civivi mckenna which is a great knife. I would love a knife like that made in a spyderco way: front flipper, sortof a wharncliffe, thin blade, ~3 inch blade, no choil. I like the mckenna but I have this weird loyalty towards spyd...

Re: The negative blade angle wharncliffe that I wish existed

First off: I really see your point. I also cut a lot down and into materials and a majority pull cuts. I really like wharncliffes! What I often do is shift my grip because I also find the wrist angle uncomfortable. The Native will serve as an example because I can't bring out a wharncliffe right now...

I've always thought of doing something like this, I think they call it an "acid splash" finish:

Re: Blades slightly above legal limit

For me it's a bit different: I wish they'd at least go up as close as possible to the next 0.5" blade length limit as far as the handle offers space for that (f.e. Manix 2, Endela), or fill all of the available space in the handle if a limit gets exceeded anyway. I know, that's not a practical opti...

Re: Recs for Self Defense while running/biking?

Looking at your request, BluetypeII and Sumdumguy gave you the best option: Unless you have physical strength to get into a knife fight, you need a small lightweight pistol/revolver, and that's about it. In most parts of the world that's not possible. It's always good to discuss options though. Whe...

Re: Cutlery Shoppe and Knifeworks no longer shipping Spydercos overseas?

I heard from Jeff at Cutlery Shoppe. He said they have had so much trouble because of all this COVID stuff that knives going overseas have taken months to arrive if at all. That would cost him money because angry customers will demand a refund thinking the knives would never show and then after the...

Re: Recs for Self Defense while running/biking?

Surprised no one has mentioned the ARK yet. It's small, especially if you can carry 3 inches. Also when running it's more comfortable to clip something to your waist then having it dangle around your neck, that gets tiresome within a few seconds. Maybe a Swick with a clip for carrying inside the wa...
