Re: It figures

Anyone else like a certain knife too late? Terzuola Double Bevel. Man I want to own one. It is just a cool little knife. I've messed around with one before. Something about that knife stuck with me. https://www.knifeworks.com/folding-knives/spyderco-double-bevel-c174gp-vg-10-steel-g-10-handles-plai...

Re: Spyderco Sheepsfoot Blades: Likes, Dislikes and Favorite Models?

I love me some Sheepfoot blades. Big fan of them on traditional knives. My Spydiechef is great, but I generally prefer my Sheepfoot blades to have little to no belly.

Re: What's good about S30V

OK, toughness is a good thing to have, but you have to know what the knife is going to be used for when you design or buy it. We are grown ups here so lets talk about my intended knife use. I have USCCA Elite insurance and my planned use is for self defense. I'm not sure they are going to have a pr...

Re: What's wrong with S30V?

I've chipped about every steel I've tried to some degree or another. Even H1. Never could call a steel chippy besides some 1095 that crumbled when sharpening due to a botched ht. Worst accidental chip was on a Lionsteel fixed blade in m390. No idea how that happened, either.

Re: What's good about S30V

What would be the major malfunction if Spyderco switched from S30V to M390 for all of their S30V models? Would the knife cost $10 more? $20 more? I'll buy a Street Beat in S30V. I don't buy that many folders and when I do, I look for something unique. Seems like from all the controversy stirred up ...

Re: External Stop Pins

I'm a big fan of them for the laterla rigidity. Even if the pivot loosens, blade play is minimal. Don't care about the prying, just like that solidity. It really is perceptible too.

Re: What's good about S30V

It's the steel I learned how to sharpen with. It gets very very sharp and holds a working edge for a good while. Corrosion resistant enough. No issues. I do not care about the differences between s30v and s35vn, I really really really don't. I didn't vote for Spyderco to change their blade steel, be...

Re: Feasability of partially DLC'd blades (just ricasso and pivot areas)

Pretty sure WE does this. Two tone finishes. Not sure if they use DLC though. Look through some WE knives and you'll see what I mean. I kind of doubt they use dlc on their two tone blades though. My Micotech Socom Elite with a two tine blade is def not dlc. I'm wondering if it is a difficult to grin...

Re: Sent Brouwer in for bottoming out lock. Returned completely untouched

Some time ago, I developed a late lockup on my Mantra, but no vertical blade play. What worked for me, I pushed the insert forward while tightening it. Used a pin to wedge it between the insert and the back of lock bar, essentially forcing the insert forward. Loctite on the screws, and tightened as...

Re: Sent Brouwer in for bottoming out lock. Returned completely untouched

Spyderco’s first letter states (as near as I can make it out, it is much harder to read than the second letter for some reason) that they are pleased to offer you a complimentary refurbishment and sharpening if you provide the return shipping. It’s a form letter addressed to “Spyderco Customer” not...

Re: Is this a grip that you use?

I think all of us use that grip while cutting. Must have missed the first post :) I don't. I didn't miss the post, what I'm saying is that you use all kinds of grips even if briefly. I've certainly grabbed a knife in both handle and blade in all possible ways. I don't use that grip. Not sure why yo...

Re: Flipper musings (Mantra 2)

Back to the washers vs bearings, I prefer the hydraulic smoothness of well done washers like on my Sebenza or my Slsyz Bowie to the zero resistance of my good bearing knives. It just feels more premium to me, just like a nice stout pull and loud talk on a traditional feels more premium than an easy ...

I'd really be down for a small fixed blade with a neutral handle, something along the lines of an LT Wright Patriiot but Spyderco.

Re: Flipper musings (Mantra 2)

I'm also in support of bearings. Bearings, good detente, and rigid/stabile lockups in all directions are what I prefer.

Lol with Evil's post about the Military in the same breath as flippers, I'm now imagining a military with a flipper instead of choil.
