Re: 12 reasons why the Delica is better than the Native

Boy, you must be talking about some precission cuts ;) How are there no pics here?! Amazing... (the pic)... I remember several pics here on this very forum that show the Natives clearly shorter edge (as it should be going by Spydercos own specs) I should have some comparison pics Delica / Native my...

Re: 12 reasons why the Delica is better than the Native

I want to start this with saying that this is how the knives feel to me. For me the Native is a work knife in this sense: For other things I used to carry this at work: Good points, and you are right on your choices 100% :) Still, and maybe even especially for the "Stanley knife tasks" I personally...

When faced with the question "which is better, the Native or the Delica?" the answer is: yes.

Re: 12 reasons why the Delica is better than the Native

I feel like the Native is more of a work knife where the Delica is more of an EDC knife. If one were to force them in different directions.

Re: 12 reasons why the Delica is better than the Native

The Delica is a better overall design than the Native. I think the Native was originally designed for Walmart or something. Hi Dan, I'm going to start my reply by saying I've never liked the Delica and that a Native was my main edc for a long time so I'm definitely biased. I also don't like arguing...

Re: A sharpness story

I've tried most sharpmaker techniques by now and my favorite is using the corners of the medium rods and finish with some light stropping with bark river white compound. Toothy, sharp and I get there in less then a minute.

Re: I tried so hard...

I'm going to commit a sin here and recommend something outside the Spyderco lineup, that I recently acquired...a Civivi Elementum. Small, lightweight, snappy action with the flipper, plenty of options on BHQ and also under $70 so it's not a big hit if he doesn't care for it much. I haven't cut anyt...

I have heard a lot of great things about Badger Claw Leather! Other than that, the Esee route looks like a good idea :)

I picked one up at the last Seconds Sale and did a bit of grinding on it to make it more what I would call wharncliffe. https://hosting.photobucket.com/images/kk28/yablanowitz/0909200800.jpg?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds https://hosting.photobucket.com/images/kk28/yablanowitz/0909200800a.jpg?wi...

Re: Completely Forgotten Spyderco Models: Your Favorites?

I've never heard of many of these models so it makes pretty much as much sense as this :D

Re: Permanent damage that you've actually done to a knife?

I've lost some tips, one due to dropping it in a tiled floor. Got lucky and only lost about 1 mm. Accidentally cut into a screw I didn't know was in a piece of wood, that took some sharpening to get out... A long time ago I battoned a pm2 and managed to put some marks on the lock face of the knife w...

Re: Chaparral with full steel liners (not nested)

The para military? The look similar, no size change if I recall right? On that note, the para 3 name is just plain wrong :p Differences, while not huge, are large enough that I suspect no parts aside from some of the screws would be interchangeable. Sizes are in mm: -----------PM - PM2 Blade--: 081...

Re: Chaparral with full steel liners (not nested)

That must have changed the weight! Why not call it a Native 6. I wonder what needs to happen cqi-wise to warrant a number change. Spyderco naming conventions have always been somewhat inconsistent and puzzling. However, generally speaking, version/generation changes imply either the resurrection of...

Quite a while back now. Maybe 2 years? I think it coincided with the change from S35vn to S30v.
