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!

Oh I don't disagree, I'm just stating the complaints about laminate steels that I've heard... Sorry about that. I didn't mean to imply that you were making those points from my post above. I was speaking more generally about ideas and opinions I have seen around here lately. I'll be more explicit n...

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...

Re: Golden made no choil knife - edge all the way to handle

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.

Is there a self help forum? I’m afraid that this new found obsession is heading for bankruptcy and a possible divorce. Any help would be appreciated ;)
On this form, it is guaranteed that if you ask, "Should I get knife X or knife Y?" the answer will always be "Both!"

I agree. I am excited to try this steel out. But I am still going to wait for a different model.

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 ...
