Re: What Are You Reading ?

Cache Lake Country: Or, Life in the North Woods by John J. Rowlands

A very fine memoir; my idea of a perfect summer read. I highly recommend it if you enjoy the outdoors.

Re: Spyderco at Blade Show ATL 2020?

It is nuts for them to keep hanging on and hoping things will be back to normal in August for the show. The list of makers and companies backing out keeps growing daily. That should be an indication for them to concentrate on a big return in 2021. I bought a ticket a while back, but have decided not...

Re: Swayback Lookout Thread

I’m going to Blade Show in August. Looking forward to stopping by the Spyderco booth to get the Swaysback in my hand. That’ll be the deciding factor for me. Several years back, I got Marcin Slysz to show me the proto for the Techno 2 in person. He is a super nice guy. I have all his designs so far a...

Re: Neck Knives? Good or Bad?

Paracord has always been my go to. It is cheap and easily replaceable. Ball chain chords are not he most comfortable to me. The key is a thin lightweight knife and preferably kydex sheath.

Re: What's on your keychain, besides keys?

I have an Atwood Ragman hook on my keys. This thing deep clips to your pocket and allows for easy access to your keys. No digging around in your pockets. I’ve had this thing on for several years now.

Re: EDC prybar

I have my prybar out everyday for some task. They are as fun to collect as knives to me. With so many available in any price range, it’s worth trying one out. I personally carry mine in my back pocket.

Re: Neck Knives? Good or Bad?

I swear by a neck knife when i go fishing. It is the handiest way to always have a quick blade when you always seem to have your hands full. Any other day, it is a Spydie clipped in my pocket.

Re: Talking about your traditional knives

Does anyone know where the Tom Krein regrind Great Eastern Cutlery's are sold? I've always wanted to get one, but never quick enough when one comes up on the secondary market.

Re: Congrats Spyderco!

The new Para2 handle materials/textures/designs in the prototype case were really awesome and caught my eye right off the bat. The best I remember they were labeled water, hourglass, leather, tortoise. I got to hold one of the new Para2 blade shape models, gave the blade a slight tactical feel to me...

Re: When / where was the first time you heard of or saw a spyderco?

I first found out about Spyderco in Tactical Knives Magazine back in the mid-90's. Before the internet, that was all I had to see new knives and read up on what was out there.

Re: The Species ( or type) Of Spyder That Hooked You?

In 1997 I bought a C10SAF Endura with the black oxide blade, serrated. Ordered it out of a catalog by sending them a money order. Two weeks later I got the knife, not this two day and it is in your hand like today's world. I had wanted a knife with a clip so badly and this one set me up to buying ma...
