Re: 3 Classics You Want To See As SPRINT RUNS

Caly 3 Rookie Ocelot If they ever do a Sprint Run of the OCELOT I would absolutely love to have another one of them. But I would want it in a newer/better blade steel and with a completely solid handle with no footprints that were in the original version. Those footprints were kind of a novelty tha...

Re: C-60 Ayoob Campaign: No I Won't Shut Up

If Japanese G10 is going to be so expensive, all the more reason to not use any steel beyond VG10. The Japanese have long experience with it so there should be no extra charges added as it is a normal material for them. Plus, there is no added shipping charges for moving tons of steel to Japan as i...

Re: C-60 Ayoob Campaign: No I Won't Shut Up

VG10 is so much better than it gets credit for And I'm not at all disagreeing with that either. The main reason I would like to see them do a Sprint Run of the C-60 Ayoob in something other than VG-10 is because the first two issues of this great model were both done in VG-10 and I think most peopl...

Re: C-60 Ayoob Campaign: No I Won't Shut Up

Seems like it would be a good opportunity for Spy27 and just go with that navy blue they're already using for those knives. I would have zero complaints about that. It would actually excite me even more because I'd like to try Spy27 in SE. That makes two of us that would love to test drive "Spy27 i...

Re: Showing how much a butcher sharpens steel off a blade

I don't think most people in the meat cutting trades know about some of the newer/better blade steels. One German company that supplies knives to the meat cutting and culinary trades is an old knife company known as F. Dick. Sad to say it's really strangely ironic that tradesmen like meat cutters do...

Re: 3 Classics You Want To See As SPRINT RUNS

(1) Remote release (preferably as a Salt knife, though I’m not sure how the spring mechanism would fare in salt water). (2) Catcherman (with LC200N steel) (3) Bushcraft (with 3V steel) The Catcherman with LC200N would be a dream come true in full SE. The Spyderco Catcherman in full SE is one of the...

Re: Give The Spyderedge A Chance Thread

Wouldn't it just make good common sense to assume that being Hawkbill blades really excel in SE that Reverse S and Recurve blades ( like the ULIZE) would also make perfect sense as well???? I firmly believe that any blade with "curve" in it would excel or even more than excel in SE. Also I believe t...

Re: Buying my first PM2: S30V or S110V?

That one is not even close for me. I would jump at the S110V over S30V without a second thought. I own 3 Para2 models in the newer/better blade steels and the S110V is my current favorite. The Para2 and C-36 Military models are my two quintesscential favorite Golden, CO made Spyderco models to use f...

Give The Spyderedge A Chance Thread

Without any argument or well crafted debate Spyderco is without any shred of a doubt is the "King Of Serrated Blades". And there isn't really even a cutlery company that is even a close second as of yet IMO. And I doubt if many serious Spyderco fans would argue that for one second. When I first deve...

Re: Collaborations - Your Top Five Spydies

Spyderco's collaborations are among the models most dear and near to my heart. But being an old School Spyderco fanatic my 5 most loved collaborations to this day mostly fall into what I affectionately call the "GOLDEN ERA of SPYDERS 1998-2004. My favorite Old School, GOLDEN ERA collaborations are t...

Re: C-60 Ayoob Campaign: No I Won't Shut Up

Are we still talking about G10? This is a Japanese model and with G10 this is going to be $350 or more, and with VG10 I don’t know if this will move at that price. If the steel was upgraded it might make this more enticing to people outside this forum to pay the premium for Japanese G10. My vote wo...

I own several and they are used by my wife and I stick to the pieces I made over the years. I am very partial to the performance of high carbon, however most people would not appreciat...

Re: Need kitchen knife recommendations!

Have you looked at the Bradford knives culinary knives? I have their paring knife and chef knife in M390, and they're pretty good (and might just be in your budget range). Without a doubt the best kitchen knives I've ever used are the TRC Knives Equilibrium (chef's knife) and KO (kitchen utility si...

Re: What type of pans does everyone cook in??

As this economy seems to be getting worse and with this current "virus scare" I've just about totally quit eating out at restaurants all together.

I've got some of my late mother's cast iron cookware and most of what she left me was made by "WAGNER". I'm no expert but I've read in a few magazines that WAGNER and GRISWALD are the two best out there>> at least out of the old stuff anyway. The Wagner that I use the most is a deep skillet that I l...
