Not likely. It will take that long to get thorough prototyping.

Out of curiosity, what is the average time a new knife spends in prototyping? Would the prototyping be any faster if the knife is based on an already existing model?

Re: Are you done with 2019, Spydie wise? What do you wish for in 2020?

I'm all done for 2019. To be honest, I can't really think of a folding knife I will get in 2020. The last thing I want is a large collection of knives that don't get used. I'm an office drone, so there are not many reasons to use a knife during the workday. Plus, I live in the Boston area, which has...

Re: Tell us about your Spyderco Knife of the Year 2019

Another vote for the P4 LW. This was easily the largest knife I have owned. I was a bit worried that it would be too big, too unwieldy. It didn't take long before I could use and operate the knife with ease. The things that really stand out are the ergonomics and how "small" it feels. Ergos were the...

Re: How was your 2019?

I moved to the Boston area, which has really affected how I am collecting/carrying knives. I sold off some knives before the move. Sadly, my beloved Sage 2 doesn't leave my apartment (sigh...). But I got myself an Urban in AEB-L to try out the steel and get a knife that is legal to carry. I also tal...

Sometime soon I'm going to order coarser stone for finishing my edges.
Have you found a steel or family of steels that don't do as well with a coarser edge?

Well said, while I love Spyderco product and respect Sal, I actively dislike the way business is being conducted in this past year.
And by "the way business is being conducted" do you mean the high number of exclusives that sell out so quickly?

Re: Any info on why the GB 2 is unobtanium right now?

I'm guessing it's because Spyderco has prioritized other models for the time being. The Kapara and Spydie Chef got a recent CQI update. I think Ikuchi will as well. Those knives (and I'm probably forgetting several others) will most likely have a longer shelf life than the GB2, so Spyderco is invest...

Re: K390 Heritage ETA?

I thought Sal said in another post that Bohler wouldn't have the steel for Spyderco until October. EDIT: Here's the thread - https://forum.spyderco.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=82237&start=60#p1358962 I was a bit off in my original supposition. Bohler won't get around to making more K390 until October.

Re: Endela ZDP-189

I think that's right, but ZDP could be regular production, no? I believe Sal said something about ZDP. I'm too lazy to look through the bombshell thread. If I had to rank the likelihood of steels for the P4 LW, they would look like this: K390, ZDP, and Hap40. As for Hap40, I have no knowledge of th...

Re: Endela ZDP-189

From what I understand, I am pretty sure the Seki sprint run this year will be K390. That includes the Endela and P4 LW.

Interestingly enough, I gave my Higonokami a few passes on the medium stone using your technique, and for the first time I have a blade that can shave hair.

Re: Dare I say it.....wharncliffe Police????

I'm interested to see what the mockups look like. The Delica has finally grown on me, but the Endura still looks a bit "off" to me. I'm really digging my P4 LW, that I don't I'd find the need for a wharnie version, but I'd still like to see some pics just to be sure.

Re: If you could give any Spyderco the Cruwear / Micarta treatment.....

I'd love to see the shiny black micarta that was on some older Seki models come to the P4. But a Japanese knife deserves some Japanese steel. What's the Japanese equivalent of Cruwear? Hap40?

Never tried it but I figure it will help go longer between maintenance. Stuff like this is why I switched to EDCing Salts.

I haven't decided what I'm going to try coating the liners with after I sand out the rust. Have you coated your liners before? Has anyone else? I am curious how long the coating will last before it has to be done again. I realize there are lots of factors to this, but if you have to reapply the coa...

Re: KnifeJoy Damascus Delica and Endura

What is VG10 Damascus? Is that cladded VG10? Folded VG10? The whole use of the term 'Damascus' is kind of confusing to me because of the many ways that it seems to be used. Thanks! A lot of Damascus knives that come from Japan (or from the Japan heritage of knife making) seem to have Damascus cladd...

Another BKF fan here. Works great.

I've heard Mr Clean Magic Eraser works well too.
I've heard BKF works well. At my local grocery store, it only came in liquid form. Does that work just as well?
