How About A High Caliber Hawkbill?

Spyderco over the years has done an excellent job of taking what some would consider a mundane or common knife design and making it special. They've done that was so many blades over the years and that's why you just don't find hardly any Spyderco knives that you could consider "common" or "boring"....

Danny Dimes tripped over Eli's shadow
If the Giants are going to call their QB "Danny Dimes" then The Chief's QB should be called "Patrick Perfect" . Can't wait to see how he uses his majesty LeVeon Bell this Sunday.

Sure glad the Chiefs passed on Daniel Jones :p

Re: NFL Season: 2020-2021

Well yes I'm a fan of the Chiefs and have been since the days of Lenny Dawson, Otis Taylor and Willie Lanier ( 60s-70s). But sometimes I think people can get over their heads in their roles of being good fans. A few people I stopped to meet last evening and even all morning long this morning they al...

Re: NFL Season: 2020-2021

I gotta ask!! After Daniel Jones tripped his own self enrolled to an 80 yard + touchdown lol, were the Giants able to turn that 80 yard gain into a touchdown? I got in late last night and only watched the highlights on ESPN and I was just beside myself when I seen Jones trip and fall on the 80 yard...

Re: NFL Season: 2020-2021

Aaron Rodgers is my favorite quarterback to hate. He's a great quarterback and kills my Cowboys and that's why I don't like him. He needs to leave Green Bay and go to the AFC :D But yet I'm supposed to love and forgive Lord Brady as I've been accused of having hateful, redneck animosity on my end w...

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

It will sell well as long as the steel is more premium than VG10 and construction will be screwed on, not pinned. (0.02¢) :) If it ends up being lc200n with screwed construction I may end up buying two :) That's another goal I have out of all of this C-60 Ayoob restoration project>> I would also lo...

Re: Anyone have any experience with Dozier D2?

I've met and talked to Bob Dozier at a couple of knife shows over the years. He's a really nice guy and I've been impressed with his stuff. I've never owned any of this custom made blades but I've heard nothing but good about them. I don't think you could go wrong buying anything from him. His reput...

Re: Spyderco's Designated "Beaters"

Whatever knives I am using for my day to day fishing work always become my beaters. Conditions are rough out there and the knives see a ton of wear from sun, salt, fish teeth, blood, bile, etc. They get dirty and beat up but these two don’t even bat an eye at the daily abuse they receive.

Re: Spyderco's Designated "Beaters"

Yeah I would be hesitant to use any Spyderco model with a ZDP-189 blade as a "user-beater" because of the properties of that steel. There is a big trade off when you go with a steel that has that high of a Rockwell rating. Albeit there are a lot of jobs you could do with a ZDP-189 blade>> anyone in...

Re: High Hollow Grind

The highest hollow grind I’ve ever had on a knife was in my old (and long-discontinued) Kershaw Liner Action crop point. The hollow grind on that went all the way to the blade spine. It was the first modern one-hand-opening folder I ever bought, not long before I got my first Spyderco, back in 1997...

Re: Production knife classics? (Modern)

When I was still quite a fan of the Boker line of knives there was one group of them I really liked. It was the GEMINI series. That was the first knife I ever owned that had X-15 TN stainless blade. That steel was great working around salt water. Now do keep in mind I owned and used one of the Boker...

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

I’d like to see this happen for sure. My brother has the original version (in PE, I believe) and I’ve always kicked myself for not getting one when they were still readily available. I’d be all over an SE version too. I’m not too picky on handle or blade materials, but I’d probably lean more toward...

Well if the C-60 sells out in minutes then I might be out of luck. I have to say, that would be tragic (and kind of funny :D) if YOU of all people missed out on this sprint because of a selling frenzy! You better have Sal sit you a couple back just to be on the safe side! ;) Oh believe me BenBen I ...

Re: High Hollow Grind

Right now as we speak I'm playing with one of my C-60 Ayoob models ( 2011, G-10 Sprint Run). It has a nicely tapered hollow grind. But I'm not sure if you would consider that a "High Hollow Grind"??? I would have to say that it probably is. But I can tell you that all my C-60 Ayoob models take a rea...
