Re: Sprints

I still say it's high time for some Sprint Runs in SE. I would bet that a C-111 Captain, ULIZE, or even an older KRIS model in SE would all sell quite well in SE. I would also love to see some older fixed blades like the TEMPERANCE 1 and STREETBEAT in an SE Sprint Run. Man youve done 3 post in the ...

Re: Forum Knife 2020 - No Holds Barred!!!

A competition chopper :D 10 inch blade of CPM 4V, FFG, 0.4 mm behind the edge, 6 mm spine, tapered tang, micarta scales. Usefulness? Zero. Cool factor? Over 9000! Competition chopper? This knife sounds very cool though. But what is the competition, do cooks get together and see who can chop their w...

Re: Forum Knife 2020 - No Holds Barred!!!

OK, I have it.

The Temperance 2, but with 52100 steel. The same brown micarta handle.

A "come-back" knife -- and a fixed blade!

Not wildly imaginative, but I would like it.

Re: Forum Knife 2020 - No Holds Barred!!!

Para 3 ? Well, it says no holds barred!!! I am also one of those who "doesn't get it" (and would simply pass on a forum Para 3) Clearly this thread is a pie in the sky exercise with no actual hope of seeing this come to pass, so ... If we were sticking to reality, I was going to revise all my former...

Re: Sprints

This may be entirely selfish on my part... but I LIKE having knives that other people don't have. Speacial, rare knives, that you just can't go buy on a whim. Collector's items aren't collector's items if anyone can go buy one anytime they want, or if lots of people have them. It's like collecting ...

Re: Sprints

The worst part is if I land a sprint I’m afraid to carry it or use it because it can’t be replaced. Bah! Just get over it. Carry it, use it, enjoy it. The value is not in the theoretical resale value, but in the joy you get from carrying and using it. Besides that, knives are incredibly durable. Un...

Re: Sprints

Yes, there is a large difference, I think most people already knew that. You couldn't prove to me by anything I've read here in the last few years. They always seem to get lumped together, and called Sprints whether they are or not. Most of the gripes don't even apply to Sprints, just Exclusives. T...

Re: Sprints

No more sprints would solve all the problems! :eek: Ding! Ding! Ding! We have a Winner! Wait, what, hold on a minute? I am surprised that anyone is suggesting no more sprints. Sprints are great. The only problem is when you want one and can't get one. The best solution to this is to just man up and...

I still would like to see a K390 or Cruwear UKPK. Both steels have been previously done in Golden.
I’m with you on the K390 UKPK. That would be amazing.
I'm totally on board with that. That would be great.

Re: Forum knife 2020 - steel poll

HAP40, bleah ... especially when we could have Rex45 instead. What's up with that. And I hate that cladded stuff. On top of that, I don't see HAP40 getting handled in Golden. Who picked these steels anyway? ;) Honestly, my vote is already lost at sea, but what I would like to see is the UKPK in LC20...

Re: Sprints

I've gotten lucky more often than I've gotten bulldozed -- but it is pretty crazy. At this point I basically tell myself I don't need any more knives. Or I try to tell myself that. It is absolutely true, proper grammar or otherwise. Honestly the sprints can be better than the exclusives because a bu...

Re: Sprints

As for the initial suggestion (Spyderco making larger runs of sprints), I am all for it. I doubt that they put a limit in order to create artificial value for collectors (but I could be wrong). I think they just have to have some target number up front. And you don't want to make too many and have t...

Re: I Don't Get The "Spydie-Flick."

I tried it. Didn't seem natural. It wasn't something I wanted to work on to "be cool" so I shrugged and moved on. Opening the knife with my thumb is simple, natural, reliable, and it just "works for me". So I guess it just ain't for me. And I take note of people saying that it might not be the best ...

Re: Has your compression lock knife opened accidentally?

Tom, please let me give you my reasons why I came to prefer other locks over to comp. lock (but again, I still don't dislike the comp lock!!) tomorrow... tbh, I am already lying half asleep in bed (it's past 11 pm where I live) and typing this on my Smartphone... :) By all means!

Was it really that bad?? No, it wasn't. But as long as you are taking note. I was thinking earlier today about some things you have said, or that I think you have said.

Re: Something in the water

I've been told that sometimes I can come off a little blunt/harsh. I hope people don't take me that way, it's hard to convey tone through text sometimes. Just to go on the record. I always take note of your posts and have never found you blunt/harsh. If I would call you anything, it would be "level...

Re: Something in the water

I certainly haven't seen any trend or tendency. I remember some sparks flying briefly quite some time ago. No harm done. A certain level of polite disagreement is not a bad thing and can lead to education and a better balance of opinions. Personal attacks are always evil. Censorship is a bad thing t...
