Re: Caly3 Lightweight??

Would prefer S30V to XHP for corrosion resistance but the Caly 3.5 is in my Top 5 all time knives, and I am really looking forward to the LW version. Hoping this might get the K390 treatment but if it is Taichung vs Seki it might be a stretch.

Re: Status of the Native Chief

Hi, all- I'm looking to buy a Native Chief. I'm still dithering over whether or not to wait for the Sprint Run or get one with S30V (leaning towards the S30V.) The S30V appears to be sold out in most knife stores, but they are still available on Amazon. So, what I'm hoping you can tell me is: 1. Wi...

Re: The best pocket knife ever

UKPK - Urban - Rhino are all contenders for me. I'm considering 'pocket knife' as a knife that would be carried 'in-pocket' rather than clipped. UKPK is close enough to the Caly 3.5 that ticks all the boxes for me until the 3.5 LW arrives. Would love to see a K390 UKPK. Urban is great, still kicking...

Re: Sal—design for Roadie 2

Could this Sheepsfoot/Wharncliffe blade profile be working into an existing handle platform (specifically thinking of the UKPK) in order to avoid the costs of new tooling and molds for the handle? I love the Roadie and would be all about a larger version myself though I am in agreement with Jazz tha...

Thanks for the information as alway Larrin. Very informative and educational. Just goes to show you can't always believe the ad copy.

Re: Caly 3.5 Light Weight: Any News?

Also looking forward to this eagerly. Just hoping this makes it into the K390 line but I'll be picking one up regardless of the flavor. =D

Re: Forum knife 2020 - final model poll

I opted UKPK as it has the widest level of acceptability (i.e. the most amount of forumites can own and use it) and because I imagine that SPY27 will most likely make its way into the Shaman platform (my second choice). Also, the UKPK is a great knife for EDC only rivaled by the as yet unavailable C...

Anyone know what this steel is like? The more I see this knife, the more I'm interested.
American analogue to Bohler M390. Different gen of powder metallurgy used for production but performance is probably indistinguishable.

Re: CPM SPY27 steel

IMHO It could be similar to PSF27 but looks like it should have better wear resistance and corrosion resistance (i.e.stainless)...possibly higher hardness?

Re: Lil Chokwe

I like the look but will need to get it in-hand before I commit to the $182 price tag...especially with all the other jewels in the reveal. Not sure what they are going to have for the other reveals!? :eek:

Re: Caly 3 love?

Caly 3.5 just fits better ergonomically for me and is tough to beat for blade:handle ratio.

Re: Reveal 4, What's your favorite release?

Like the Astute but wish it was non-China. Rex 45, S45VN are cool. Wishing we knew more about SPY27, maybe Larrin will weigh in. K390 Ladybug + Watu, 100%.

I would love to see a DLC 52100/Gray G10 à la the Knifeworks Manix 2. That would be cool, but I wonder if they would take that risk since that Manix took A LONG TIME to sell out for an exclusive (I have one and love it) One of the best looking knives out there.
