Re: I want to express my thanks for a great forum.

I would also like to thank the mods for running this great place and hosting the yearly calendar contest. :) And Sal for paying attention to it and commenting here as often as he does, and answering questions about knives sometimes. And all of you guys for the knowledge and pretty photos you share. ...

Re: What happened to the flat-ground Rescue?

They're out already Then why are they not listed on Spyderco's website along with their other stock :confused: I'm pretty sure they didn't change the model number so sites might not know exactly which version they have. If you want one you might have to call and check if it's the saber ground or FF...

What happened to the flat-ground Rescue?

At one point, I could've sworn there was a flat-ground Rescue featured in a "coming soon" entry on Spyderco's official site, and also it's listed in this page in a Spyderco official magazine. I can no longer find the entry for it on Spyderco's website. Did it get canceled or something? Am I just ima...

I have a proper but the grind is too thick, it’s not a great slicer.
Ah really? That sucks, I really like sheepsfoots and the Proper is one sleek-looking knife.

If Spyderco made a similar-shaped thing, I'd probably buy it. Sheepsfoot blades are great, and I'm always looking to try out more.

Re: Mourning for the brick and mortar stores

Wow. Didn't know the brick-and-mortar store situation was so dire out there, that kinda sucks. Sure it's great that online stores have made it easy to buy things, but it would be even awesomer to have both at once. Where I live, there's a knife store run by some friendly people, and a sporting goods...

Re: What's your 2 knife EDC system?

https://i.imgur.com/UWYKu4j.jpg My favorite knife, the Rescue, clipped inside right sock for cutting zip ties, most food, and most other things that need cutting. Endura clipped inside waistband or in a zipped jacket pocket for anything that a plain edge or a pointy tip would be better for. Does an...

Re: Your personal size categories?

Small: Native, Delica. Don't carry the Natives much anymore, looking to buy a Delica to keep in the garage as a box cutter. Not knives I prefer to EDC, but awesome for some tasks. Too small: anything smaller than the Native and Delica Medium: Rescue (old lightweight version without liners), Endura 3...

Re: Endura and Delica Models: Which "era" is your favorite?

I like the current version of the Endura very much. Aesthetically, I prefer the pointy tip of earlier versions, but for practical purposes I like the tip on the current version. It's wider and better for spreading peanut butter on bread. And if I ever decide I really want a pointy Endura, it'll be ...

Re: Spyderco Photo of the Week Contest!

Endura 3, and the second major CQI edition of the Rescue (which didn't get an official name change or different model number than the previous one for some reason)

Both with ATS-55 blade steel. Made in the mid-to-late 90s as far as I can tell.

Re: Jade FRN?

Yeah, I wasn't thinking so much of a clear FRN knife but rather something that's about the same shade of grayish light green as the G-10 jade knives. But clear would be pretty epic -- unlimited dyeing potential, or just leave it clear to have a super cool clear knife that lets you see all the inner ...

Jade FRN?

Has there ever been an FRN knife with the jade handle / DLC M4 blade combo? I really like that combination of color but I prefer lightweight knives over the G10 models.

Serrated Worker, 'cause it's very small and kind of weird-looking and has that narrow delicate tip.

Re: Upcoming flat-ground Rescue 3!

I’ll tell you, you can’t go wrong with the Delica wharncliffe at all. I don’t just say that. I use it a lot, every day at work, since they came out. No other knife can even come close to it as a work knife, in my opinion. Hmm, but will the upcoming wharncliffe Endura be better for my purposes? Pret...
