Re: Military Family Sprint Runs?

Maybe S45VN? I was kinda expecting to see Para3, PM2, and the Millie all released with the new steel.

Re: Reveal 4, What's your favorite release?

No interest in the Chief in Rex45? When I saw that I figured it would be a MAJOR hit, as many people have been asking for a Sprint/Exclusive of that model shortly after it first dropped. No experience with Rex 45, so I can't say one way or the other. In listening to some smart people about what CPM...

Re: Reveal 4, What's your favorite release?

CPM SPY27 is the favorite thing announced. I like the fact that it is a well-balanced steel with a nod to those who like to sharpen without some of DBH's CBN stones. I'd love to see it in the Seki models, but that is not meant to be. Because of the stupid knife laws where I live, the Lil Native woul...

Re: CPM SPY27 steel

I suspect that's exactly the goal here. I'd be surprised if they went so far as to get a proprietary steel just for a sprint run. The two features of a knife that I most associate with a Spyderco are the hole and compression lock. The opening hole is not proprietary to Spyderco, and the patent for ...

Re: KC Exclusive Shaman Rosewood REX 45

Regardless what folks think of the scales, which I'm kind of surprised at what I'm reading so far...it's not to see something different than FRN or G10! That price for a Shaman with Rex45 is well worth it, scales or not. That's a great point. I hope this release is a success so that Spyderco might ...

Re: KC Exclusive Shaman Rosewood REX 45

I kinda wished spyderco went for something cheaper but better looking, like maple burl or something... I know that wood poses all kinds of challenges due to moisture or lack there of, but I find snakewood and leopardwood to be beautiful. Murray Carter will often have pictures on his IG page of kniv...

Yes! I'd like more longer, thinner blades in Super Blue.

This! I saw an Endura in SB on /r/knife_swap the other day. The price was pretty good too (like $85).

Re: Forum knife 2020 - model poll

I wish there was an "Other" category. Given the number of prominent knife makers who have passed away, I think the next forum knife should be a re-release of a collaboration that Spyderco has done with one of these makers. Wayne Goddard comes to mind.

HAP-40 wood scales please. All the other classics are already available this way.
I think that's a Knife Center exclusive. As long as you convince them of the need for this, I'm sure Spyderco will make a run of this Endela.

Re: Siren?

So the second page of text (with the P4 LW) in the new catalog mentions the availability of knives. We decided that our yearly product guide, like this one, will focus exclusively on products that are in active inventory and ready, or almost ready, to be purchased. That's about as good as it gets fo...

Re: ZDP-189 - Overrated or Super Steel?

Here’s a good question...would you all rather have ZDP-189, or M390, Cruwear, or something else? Hard to see most steels being more preferable than Cruwear right now (especially if it comes with micarta scales - that combo is getting a lot of love). I wouldn't be surprised to see ZDP starting to ge...

Re: Big Spydie fever

I do not own, nor have I tried the Chief. I do have a P4 LW, and I love it. It has one of the most comfortable handles I have used. I think this is because it works for such a large range of grips, hand sizes, if you use gloves or not, etc. I also love the way it carries. It is thin and light. It do...

Re: Community Sharpening Journal

My question is this>> Are there any "Natural" stones that can compete with some of the newer ceramic and CBN stones. Belgian Coticule stones have a good reputation. KKnives Switzerland does the extreme HT like DBH and he likes the Belgian stones. Never tried it myself, so I can't say for sure if th...

C121 Terzuola Slipit as a lockback or liner lock :)
Has Spyderco ever released a locking version of a Slipit knife before? I know the Kapara will get a non-locking version (or at least a prototype is floating around).

How about a Franken-Return? I like the Wayne Goddard design, but I want the micarta from the first editions and the full-flat grind and Boye dent of the later models.

Get proficient on the SM. If that works for you, great. If, as is often the case on this forum, you start to go down the rabbit hole of sharpening, then you can start experimenting. Here is a way to experiment with different angles without having to buy new sharpening equipment (the video should sta...
