Re: Mantra 3 vs Sliverax which one to get?

The hand guard is better at the sliverax.
It's also bigger than the mantra 3.

You can shake out the blade at the mantra 3, at sliverax more easy because the blade is heavier.

As i do not like the detent I would not buy them again.
I would buy a para 3 /PM2.

Re: EDC, or rotation?

Whenever I get a new Spydie it will be carried. A few weeks or so.
Then I decide which knife to use.
Para 3 or some smaller/lighter ones...

Scary sharp, a strong tip. Love the blade shape.

Action is a bit stiff.

Re: Smallest spyderco you are comfortable with?

Ladybug one hand opening is awkward to me.
So McBee and Dragonfly are the smallest I really use.

Re: Who owns a Hanan?

Hi, I could shake my Sliverax open. My mantra 3 if I try really hard also. But it's better than the Sliverax. Maybe CQI kicked in. Hanan is similar in age than Sliverax. So I think no real CQI happened. 13:10 at Nicks video: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=dzvsNDp1oqk As great Spyderco is and as much ...

Double edged blades are pretty illegal in many countries.

I prefer to be able to touch the spine of the blade.

Re: A Spyderco OTF?

OTFs are legal in Austria!

I do not carry one because it's too heavy and also it might trigger more interest as I'd like to have.

Re: 2019 New Product Reveal!

My Para 3 LW SE was delivered Friday to my dealer. Picked it up on Saturday.

That's 105 days from revealing to holding in my hands.

I call that a win.
Great job Spyderco!
