Re: Wharncliffe Endure Serrated = Super Knife

I haven't even received my serrated wharnie Delica, but I was already looking at the Endura last night. After carrying a full-serrated blade as a primary for awhile, I prefer PE for my typical tasks, but the SE has been indispensable a few times. Serrated lends itself to a longer blade for sawing ta...

Re: S30v

Your average knife user will not notice small or even moderate differences in edge retention or toughness, but they certainly WILL notice whether something rusts or not. I think most would agree, but I don’t think LC200N would differentiate Spyderco from other brands. Your average knife user is alr...

Re: Spyderco Heavy Weights!

Maybe by a thicker blade or liners, or a backspacer. I only want the weight in the handle. Blade-heavy knives feel like they’re trying to teeter-totter out of my hand when I’m opening, closing, or changing grips. They’re not really going to fall out (usually!), and actual cutting is fine with them,...

Re: Dragonfly Wharncliffe

I'm really digging this one. https://i.imgur.com/rfTags7.jpg I see liners. Did they come with the scales? Lack of liners is turning me off from several FRN Spydies. :( I exchanged my first FRN Dragonfly for the G10 version because the handle was too light in the hand. I’ve thought about trying a bl...

Re: Delicafly

Spyderco used to (still does?) get a lot of grief because people thought the blades looked "too short" for the handles. I've always liked that, and I think the Delicafly proportions look pretty much spot on. I could even go a little shorter on the blade for laying index finger over the spine to cont...

Re: Compendium of tips for sharpening serrated knives

12. UNLIKE sharpening plain edged knives, you DO NOT follow the curve of the blade. This right here is worth the price of admission. I have a couple rarely used combo blades, but I just bought a full serrated as a trial for EDC. I probably never would have noticed the orientation of the teeth, and ...
