Seems like quite a few companies are jumping on the Axis design.

Sal,

Does that keep you up at night, thinking about when the patent for the compression lock expires?

Re: Delica S90V

I have considered getting an edge pro or something similar at some point. I started out years ago sharpening by hand, but then there were no super steels like today. The sharpmaker is great for most sharpening/maintaining I do, just not the easiest for tougher tasks. I also wear out a little quicke...

Re: Japanese steel Seki Sprints?

Laminated CoS! DBH has a good video explaining why laminated CoS is an interesting steel. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eREr9WSdi74 Laminated steels seem to be falling out of favor with the afis here, but I'm all for it. I think it is a cool part of the Japanese cutlery tradition. Yes, I'd even wa...

Re: The Final (probably) Three, Revised

Mako, I liked your idea of grouping by size: Something big Something in between Something small So for me this would be: Police 4 LW - I really like the Seki knives, and I appreciate the forward finger choil. This knife carriers much smaller than I anticipated. I hope, one day, that SPY-27 makes its...

Re: First Impressions of SPY27 Steel

Is SPY27 going to replace S30V in Golden models? From what I see, this could be a perspective replacement. That's an interesting question. I'd like to know what the criteria would be in making this decision. I think price would be at the top of the list. Currently lots of S30V is being used by Spyd...

Re: First Impressions of SPY27 Steel

If I may make a request, could somebody post their thoughts about sharpening the steel. I am most interested in how it performs on water stones, but any information would be appreciated.

Re: What's your favorite Spydie with a wharncliffe blade?

Ugh, just what I need, a thread about how great wharncliffes are and photos. Never tried one and I don't need a new knife, but the Jazz Delica looks to be an incredibly practical knife.

Re: Ever Take Your Spydercos Apart ?

I look apart my P4LW because I noticed a pin near the back spring that isn't there on an Endura (and I assume the smaller knives in the Seki lineup). The pin was exactly what I expected, there really wasn't a reason to take it apart. I disassembled the knife mostly out of curiosity. It was a pain to...

Re: Caly 3.5 Light Weight: Any News?

Please please please let us see a Caly LW soon! Thanks Sal. First, let me start by saying that I have no knowledge of the internal workings of Spyderco. I don't have an MBA or a business degree; nor am I an entrepreneur. I write CS curriculum for a living, so take everything I say with a grain of s...

Re: Strongest EDC Steel?

...low maintenance steel that would last longer without as many sharpenings... When I see "low maintenance" I think of the ability to cut whatever I want, fold up the knife, put it back in my pocket, and not worry about rust. So I'd vote for LC200N. The new Siren looks pretty sweet, though there is...

Re: Strongest EDC Steel?

What do you like about knives? Answering that question will help you narrow down your options. There is nothing like making your knife edge razor sharp and with a nice shiny finish. You can get those results easily with 52100 and your basic Sharpmaker. It was a very satisfying feeling. Figure out wh...

Good point. I hope we get to see all the long term spyderco designs in it. Specifically the police!
I'd love to see this too, but I have a feeling that the steel will be exclusive to the Golden models (at least at first).

Rockjumper vs. Delica Wharncliffe

So, do you think the Rockjumper could render the Delica Wharncliffe a thing of the past? Plenty of similarities, some differences. Are the two knives differentiated enough to merit their inclusion going forward? Obviously, I've never handled the Rockjumper, but it seems it is improvement in most ways.

What other "Premium Steel" are you seeking?
How about laminated COS? People say it is like VG-10 but better. Hard to argue with that. Of course, both of those steels have cobalt as a defining alloy. So does SPY-27. Perhaps that steel could make its way over to the Seki line on of these days.
