Re: An ideal edge for K390.

Would share my experience. To begin with, I have a complete set of Venev diamonds, a set of different Dialux polishing compounds, and a guided sharpening system. I received my K390 Dragonfly with coarse factory edge around 38-40 degrees (no microbevel), and immediately did a resharp to 34°. At firs...

Re: I grossly underestimated the Native Chief

So here is the deal on my take. It was quite traumatic so I'll keep it short. My mother had a sudden cardiac arrest, I think the English term is? Not a heart attack, full stop dead on the ground situation. She was out of consciousness and making these gurgling motions which I now know is a telltale ...

Re: I grossly underestimated the Native Chief

i reckon the Kapara is a better cutter onbut Í find my grip slippping when out and about due to the smooth carbon fiber. Not so much meant for demanding tasks and thus for my purposes, less reliable as the chief will outperform the kapara in actual work done. And it's a workhorse alright. The chief ...

Put a new edge on it, trying to decide whether I need another endura in K390.
But I've been carrying the rex 45 native chief for the last 2 weeks and I like it more and more with each day. So I guess I'm set between this, the chief and a cruwear millie.

https://i.imgur.com/T40eRFv.jpg Wow, so I've been carrying it nonstop since I got it.

Re: Its a new "Golden Age"

Not only for spydies, the entire market is moving so fast now. I think spyderco definitely plays a big role in getting great steels in people's hands for affordable prices. This provides incentives to competitors to keep up. M390, rex 45, m4 etc in sub 200 bucks folders. crazy right? Even others lik...

Re: Should I be Disappointed?

So, question: What makes the Paysan, or Nirvana (the other Peter Rassenti collaboration) worth more than a CRK Sebenza? Obviously a round hole, and bit nicer steel. What else? This is asking for a subjective answer, since all we can really do is compare what we know about the those models, and we d...

Re: What Spyderco is in your pocket today??

No fancy pic, but worth mentioning nonetheless. https://i.imgur.com/PSvHIzE.jpg This thing won me over to the para 3 despite my complete indifference to or before. The normal one didn't quite do it for me as it felt like it was going for a pm2 in a small size but ending up as a stubby thick not quit...

Re: Sharpeners Compared-Your Thoughts

Yeah I'm unsure of what to think of this comparison. I have mainly used the edge pro the last few years and gotten pretty proficient with it. I prefer it over a wicked edge because of the extra freedom in blade positioning. The learning curve goes a bit higher then the wicked edge which I find the m...

Re: Native chief vs Endura?

Well ****. The Endura is a favorite of mine, never really minded the ergos though they aren't on par with spydies in the native and (para) military line but now I really notice that first hump I have to say that I'm not a fan haha. I've been carrying a g10 s110v manix 2 lately again (to decide wheth...

Re: Your Most Collected Spyderco?

For me it's the pm2 in 7 editions (1 regular production all black s30v and 6 sprint editions). I scaled down my delica's to 3 in total, because I own too many blades of this length and profile already but I'll keep the pakkawood hap40, regular vg10 and vtoku2 edition (I accidentally let the vtoku co...

I was in love with my sage 5, took it everywhere, did everything I could to keep it going. It was my best buddy. A few months back I was depositing stuff in a container. Cut open the boxes and dumped old hardware parts, jam it into a piece of wood, and repeat. Stupid me walked out leaving the knife ...

Re: The backup that helps you sleep at night... ;)

Caly 3 HAP40, it is a sprint and it is discontinued but when I got the first one imported from the states I was surprised at how good it was. For me perfect ergos, very snappy and smooth deployment, it's not delica thin but it falls in line with it being a robust ergonomic little wonder with no down...
