Re: Do you immediately sharpen a new Spyderco?

I've been cutting back on my sharpening veracity lately. Probably because I use my knives less now. I used to sharpen right out of the box, but I generally don't with Spydies as they usually come sharp. There have been a few exceptions. For whatever reason, probably luck of the draw, a few of my Tai...

Re: Would a knife ban be cool here in the US? Id so, what should it look like?

I vote for free knives. Once a year you will recieve a check for at least $203.42 to go toward a quality cutting tool. This will be funded by heavily auditing state governments and re-directing the wasted money, especially the wasted money that goes into people's pockets.

Re: So when does this forum start speculating about the upcoming discontinued models???

This is the first year that I'm likely not going to be really sad about whatever is discontinued. I think SG is likely correct on her predictions. The last few years saw some great models discontinued. I think this year will see a lot of the flops, redundancies, and uninteresting models getting let ...

Re: Bradley folder

I also wouldn't want a Bradley in anything other than M4. Only thing I want is that awful peel ply to be reolaced with real c.f. If you have to use that knife on the job where you're rusting it often, try some good coating. Mineral oil or whatever you like. The EDCi spray works well too.

Re: Small knife saves Canadian man from grizzly bear

This man must have been had some grace on his side. That is incredible. The mental image if being picked up by the abdomen and carried is just awful. Also, his ability to ride 4+ miles to help after that is awesome.

Re: What "others" are in the mail?

I did it. I finally succumbed. I've been eyeing this for the last couple years. I had some overtime pay and I just couldn't take it when I was pursuing DLT. I don't need this knife. Not sure what I'm even gonna do with it. It is a big, 4" modern stiletto. But I'm going to be a happy boy when it show...

Re: Why no Byrd fixed blades?

I'm still suoer excited for the Bow River. That and the Waterway are my two planned Spydie purchases for the year (if the Bow River makes it this year). I'd love to see Soyderco keep pushing into the fixed blade market. Not sure how stoked on a Byrd I would be, but if Spyderco can put out more compe...

Re: Endura 4 Scales

Suingab at G10.lt does excellent work. Check out his website. I'll second this his work is very good and he will make pretty much any design you want I'll triple this. Also, very nice getting a Krein regrind. I'd love one of his reground GEC's or even one of his own fixed blades. You saying this ma...

Re: Signatures on blades

#push# Really curious to learn why there are both Sal's and Eric's signature on the pm2, who did what, and if there are other spydies that have 2 or more signatures on'em...? Thanks in advance! They're both on it because both designed the knife. Not sure who did what. I bet if you dig through the f...

Re: Is that knife really that important?

I've got this awful collector's mindset. Always wanting two of everything, the complete sets, etc. I got sucked down that rabbit hole with Spyderco. I've got like 5 different delicas, two enduras, 3 pm2s, and all of the blurple s110v models. Even worse is my GEC collecting. There Ive got two of ever...

Re: Tonight's Debate 2019

I went with blade. Not sure what you meant by that, but I'd love a blade that locked my blade. Even more so if I could get a blade that locked by a blade that was itself locked by a blade.

Re: Knife History: Major developments?

I work for a large and good community college. Regarding having knife making as a program, it would be tricky. An AAS differs from AA and AS programs by not having the focus on transferring to a bachelor program. AAS programs are designed to make people employable in fields within the community and ...

Re: Reveal, lack of anticipation, general thoughts.

Nothing against the new reveal system. I just haven't been interested. I've been finding better values from other companies lately. I'm still looking toward Spyderco for cool steels, but other than that, nothing has impressed (besides the Waterway, I want that). I've been on a traditional knife and ...
