Re: N690 vs N690Co on roadie

Yes, they are the same. Co stands for Cobalt, N690 has a addition of some Cobalt. Why does spyderco add the Co if I may ask? From what I can find I don’t see it anywhere else other than N690. Only on my roadie do I see the “Co” added and was curious why this was since the makeup of the metal is the...

N690 vs N690Co on roadie

Are they the same exact thing? What does the “Co” stand for on the roadie?

Re: Which spyderco is in the mail?

I have a UKPK frn maroon on the way, with the drop point.

Another UKPK, the exclusive G10... I cannot wait

And a stretch 2 with brown G10.

I enjoy this forum much better than others, and I will be posting photos when they arrive.

Thanks to all who helped.

Re: Most comfortable spyderco hole / spyderco folder for large hands that isn’t part of the “ military “ series?

Just chiming in the say that the Stretch was my first Spyderco and still one of my favorites. Definitely get one. I like the Straight Spine version even better, and waited the better part of 10 years for it. But the drop point is still great. I have L/XL hands and think it's pretty much the comfies...

Re: Most comfortable spyderco hole / spyderco folder for large hands that isn’t part of the “ military “ series?

I still stand by a Manix. Many different models and scale materials ranging from $100-$180ish. Good size knife, large hole. Beautiful knife, I just know I would have to explain the switch on the handle, which scares a lot of folk (idiots will think it’s an assisted folder.) I own the yojimbo, I jus...

Re: Most comfortable spyderco hole / spyderco folder for large hands that isn’t part of the “ military “ series?

Looks good but I’m looking for more of an extended out spydie hole, the stretch 2 ( non straight ) frn / g10 models both look like the spider hole is very well extended from the handle. Any opinion on stretch 2? Thank you and everyone else. I don't have a Stretch but those who have them seem to rea...

Re: Most comfortable spyderco hole / spyderco folder for large hands that isn’t part of the “ military “ series?

Unfortunately no. I just cannot carry for self defense by law. I’ve never had a problem in my life, I drive I don’t walk. However during times like these, I prefer to be on the safer side. It would be easier for those with bad intentions to call it a “ dangerous knife “ It’s all semantics, right no...

Re: Most comfortable spyderco hole / spyderco folder for large hands that isn’t part of the “ military “ series?

Another thing to consider is a lot of places have different laws so long as you are on your way to, participating in, or on your way from hunting and fishing activities. Im not telling you to push the envelope, but I am saying you can just leave a fishing pole and tackle box in your car. People can...

Does your state offer any definition of "dangerous"? Unfortunately no. I just cannot carry for self defense by law. I’ve never had a problem in my life, I drive I don’t walk.

Re: Most comfortable spyderco hole / spyderco folder for large hands that isn’t part of the “ military “ series?

What is everyone’s opinion on the stretch 2 G-10, discontinued but still available? Vs the regular FRN model? It looks like it hits all the notes, but ZDP-189 Steel would be a pia for me to sharpen. Any info is appreciated. Ok and Tatanka is a cool blade I saved, thanks to whomever suggested, just a...

Re: Most comfortable spyderco hole / spyderco folder for large hands that isn’t part of the “ military “ series?

The backlock models have that strong bias to stay closed, so if your state also has a Woodrow Wilson for “gravity knives” the entire Endura family (delica, Endela, stretch, endura) would be a great choice. There are other dressier knives (chaparral, native etc) also. Finally, the UKPK is a slip joi...

Re: Most comfortable spyderco hole / spyderco folder for large hands that isn’t part of the “ military “ series?

Manix 2 is excellent in my XL hands. My concern with the manix 2 is that switch in the handle. At first I thought it was some form of assisted opening, but further research tells me it’s part of some locking mechanism? Can the knife be flung open by that switch or just disengaged? Laws here have a ...

Indeed it is, I’m looking at stretch 2 models currently vs the upcoming sprint run and current Shamans.

Re: Most comfortable spyderco hole / spyderco folder for large hands that isn’t part of the “ military “ series?

Im so confused. So the military would be fine if it had a different name? Spyderco doesnt print the name on their g10 knives like the military. Are you going around telling people what its called and all of a sudden the name is the problem? If thats the case I would just lie about the name. Tell th...

Re: Most comfortable spyderco hole / spyderco folder for large hands that isn’t part of the “ military “ series?

Maybe the problem is the compression lock is easy to flick open? It is not assisted. No it’s purely a matter of semantics. My state has a statue against “ dangerous knives “ however where I live is fairly conservative. So my point is I would rather have a blade called the shaman or the oracle than ...
