Re: New here & just bought 3 knives

Hello and welcome! :spyder: As another female person with very petite hands, I've found that the size of the overall knife doesn't matter to me as much as the ergonomics of the handle. I wanted to love the Manix, but the contouring and finger choils were just set too wide apart and I couldn't get a ...

Re: AEB-L SE Sheepfoot Push Button Comp Lock Autonomy

Sheepsfoot PM2?

...This might actually convince me to buy a PM2. Sheepsfoot blades are so useful and awesome.

Re: Help Me spend my money...Southard or Advocate

You can always grind a blade shorter. How about pick a knife based on the handle ergonomics and the other aspects you want, and then shorten the blade to your liking, if necessary? Got no advice about the Southard-vs-Advocate question, just wanted to point out that knife mods are a thing that is pos...

Re: 2021 Spyderco Forum Calendar Contest!

https://i.imgur.com/WLmT0cQ.jpg The serrated one is an early edition of the Spyderco Rescue (released in 1998, I believe); the other, the Spyderco Amalgam, was released 20 years later. I bought the Rescue a couple years back, and it arrived brand-new, in the box, with all the original paperwork, an...

Re: First time you saw a Sypderco?

Went looking online for a serrated knife because serrated knives are epic, and also I knew I liked knives but really wasn't feeling the Benchmade my Dad had bought me a few years back. Read lots of reviews, discovered Spyderco, decided on the full-serrated blackout lightweight Native, traded the Ben...

Re: Shaman mini-skinny chop

After seeing the awesomeness of this and that other knife you did the mini-skinny chop to, I need to get an extra Amalgam and send it to you :D I've been wanting a sheepsfoot Amalgam so bad, and this would be a way to sort-of get one.

Re: What Spyderco is in your pocket today??

After buying a few Spydercos last year I find that I mostly carry the PM2 S35VN and the Endura SE Wharncliffe depending on what I am doing. During the rainy winter working outdoors I was often carrying my Pacific Salt SE. I have a PM3 S35VN but the blade seems too stubby. The PM2 feels like the per...

Re: Let's get hyped for the Amalgam!

I'd like one with DLC blade and hardware, and light gray scales, like that Manix sprint that was floating around for a while. Or translucent natural G10 scales with a DLC blade. Or DLC with marbled carbon fiber. ...If they make any variant of this in DLC I will buy it. While I'm on a roll wishing fo...

The Rescue is the same as the one in the previous photo, the Amalgam is new. Both knives were released 20 years a...

Re: Sprints

I love Sprint Runs, Flash Batches, dealer Exclusives, all those limited-edition fancy knives. It's so cool to see the different colors, blade shapes and coatings, steel types... I remember before the Native came in a black-coated plainedge variant, I bought the black-and-orange Exclusive and swapped...

Re: Tucson, Arizona

I can second the recommendation for Blade Runner Knives -- awesome place, awesome owners, able to order knives for you if they don't have them in stock, bought several Spydies from them. Don't remember what they carry in the way of kitchen knives because I never pay attention to kitchen knives anywa...

Re: New to the knife scene

Hello and welcome to the knife scene! :) eBay is a bit iffy when it comes to the more popular models -- there are fake Polices and Enduras on there, for example (made in China with low-quality steel and unauthorized by Spyderco). But AFAIK no one bothers to clone the sprint runs (usually), so you sh...

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...

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.
