Re: REC PM2 CPM 10v Hardness

Given that Spyderco probably doesn't use the same HT protocol as you, is this about what you expected?

I've done a trade or two, bought a few knives, and sold some too all on /r/knife_swap.

Re: The best pocket knife ever

I always wonder about these knife laws...how often do people actually encounter the police, or are in situations where the police will see a pocket clip? I could be ignorant, but I never think twice about any knife I carry, and I live in NY (not NYC) The Urban is more than adequate for using a knif...

Re: The best pocket knife ever

I can't carry anything over 2.5 inches, so I got the Urban in AEB-L before moving to the Boston area. I'm bummed that I can't carry my beloved Sage 2 or the P4 LW. That said, I haven't felt the need to buy another small knife.

I have a feeling this is going to spark into a trend after the Rock Jumper comes.
What do you mean by trend exactly? I could see the release of future knives with a Rock Jumper-like blade, but I don't see the Endura family of knives being revamped to this blade style.

Re: SRS-15 / SRS-13 ?

That steel sounds interesting, and it is good to know that the P4 would be included. I like the idea of a zome handle. How about the ZDP green and the off-white from the SS Stretch?

Re: This one might become the most iconic Spyderco

Assuming that SPY27 lives up to its potential, that knife (minus the serrations) would be awesome. I'm not holding my breath, but it is fun to speculate.

Re: Small Police 4 lightweight

Love the P4 LW. I was skeptical about the size of the knife, but it feels great in hand and in pocket. I am very happy with the knife. That said, I understand that the size may not be for everybody (though do give it a try if you can, I think you will be surprised). In the meantime, would the SS Str...

Re: Stretched Stretch - continued from Straight spine thread

This was taken from the Bombshell thread, but thought this is an interesting question. A 4" straight spine stretch sounds interesting, but wouldn't that be direct competition for the P4 lightweight? Couple that question with bit of information from Sal on the upcoming Rock Jumper (highlighting is mi...

Re: More non Japanese steel in Seki Models!

But I think a lot of people dislike it because it limits the heat treat/hardness of the core steels. Just how high can Spyderco go? I mean there is a theoretical limit to any particular steel. Spyderco makes its money by selling to the public at large. Despite the enthusiasm on this forum, we don't...

Re: More non Japanese steel in Seki Models!

I'm of the opposite mind. Get more Japanese steels out of seki! Super blue, Hap40, and V-toku2 have been amazing and I want more. I tend to agree, but consumer demand seems to be on steels from elsewhere. Also, people don't seem to like the cladding as much as I do. I'd like to see laminated steels...

Re: The Pac Salt needs a Military handle

I used to think the same about the Endura. Then the Endela and the P4 LW came out. I haven't used the Endela, but the handle looks to be more comfortable. The P4 LW is amazing in terms of ergos. With these two additions to the Seki family, I am not sure the Endura needs to change. You can find somet...

Re: Military Domination..(of my pocket). What Spydercos have surprised you to become your "go to"?

My Police 4 lightweight was giving the Military a run for its money... My P4 LW has surprised me. I got it because I wanted a knife I could use around my apartment when work needs to be done. I thought the knife would be big enough for larger cutting jobs, but too big to be for a daily carry. Boy w...

Re: Paramilitary XL (Para 4) vs Military 2

Why sit on a patent and only ever use it in one knife? With the patent for the compression lock potentially expiring in early 2021 , I wouldn't be surprised if Spyderco starts to offer more locks. Not saying they will abandon the compression lock, but mixing other proprietary locks will help to dif...

Premium Polestar would be very good, tool steel and G10 or micarta.......I kinda want to buy Polestar just to make micarta scales for it :D Man!! That's a GREAT proposal! Polestar is such a beautiful knife, especially the style of its scales.. still, Micarta would be even better. I'd love to see a ...

Re: Urban discussion

In some European countries (Germany, I think, is one of them) you can have either a one-hand opening knife or a locking knife, but you can't have both. The Urban fills this role nicely. I too wouldn't mind a back lock on the knife, but as an office drone I don't really need it.
