Re: Native Chief fan club!

I like it. I hope we get to see more variations in the future. I can't get dealer exclusives anymore (unless a Canadian dealer is willing to do one, maybe), so any sprint runs are welcome.

Re: Native 5 lw with SPY27?

Looking forward to this steel, specifically in the Native lightweight platform. Hopefully someday I'll get a Military in SPY27 for my back pocket to match.

Re: Straight Razor from Spyderco

Straight razor traditionalists seem to prefer a pinned assembly. I'm on the fence for the reasons you have mentioned. The majority of old, turn of the century razors that were available had very common shared steels. Mostly Sheffield crucible steel. In this day and age, the razor users want to try ...

Re: Straight Razor from Spyderco

I'm in for one. I sometimes shave with a straight, depending on my mood. (Shaving with a straight is not for the tired, or the inebriated for that matter. The more you know... ) I have one of those newer Hart Steel razors, and an older Case Red Imp. Both are wedges, which is my preference. The Hart...

Re: S110v Shaman?

I'd buy one. I'd welcome any production Shaman in any variation. The sprints are hard to come by for us Canucks, and US dealer exclusives are now impossible to get.

Re: Spyderco Models From 2010 & Earlier That You Wish To Return

Native. I like the older style more than the Native 5.

Chinook 1. I'd take a Chinook 2 or 3 too.

Renegade.

Re: Services in Canada?

I'd advise just learning how to use the Sharpmaker. I don't recommend the Edge Pro, it seemed like a poor design to me while I was using it. If it were my money I would get the KME, but I just use the SM and I don't see that changing anytime soon. Good luck! This is the best advise. You'd be surpri...

Re: Spyderco Retro?

Here is an easy retro sprint. Only the grind needs changing. I want a Native Chief with original sabre grind and Swedge. Fraden lock had an excellent hollow ground Manix 2. This is my number 1 wish for the Chief. Those retro style grinds are awesome. If possible, add the square jimping and a barrel...

Re: Native 5 with Compression Lock please!

Got the lil' native comp lock for Christmas. It's awesome. Eric did a great job with it, and the fit/finish is perfect to boot. I'd buy a comp lock native in a heartbeat now. Same hardwear (fasteners and wire clip).

Spyderco Retro?

Does anyone else regret not picking up old school Spyderco's when they were available? I deeply regret not picking up Chinook's 1-3 while they were available. I'm Canadian, and (not getting too political) those knives are basically impossible to get now, unless some other Canuck is willing to sell. ...

Re: Shaman Cru-Wear Sprint Run release ?

Well, the Canadian dealer had 30, and they were gone in a blink of an eye. I failed. I'm really bad at this game. Another sprint lost.

I wouldn't mind having a Cru-Wear Military. Just throwing that out there. I wouldn't mind a Military in CPM 10V either.
