Re: Kindness of Your Hearts...

As I get older, the more that I believe that Karma truly exists. The person that accepted a donated knife under fraudulent pretenses will have Karma to deal with at some time. Maybe not tomorrow and maybe not next week, but at some point, he will have something unfortunate happen to him as a result...

Re: A first post regarding a first Spyderco

Hi everyone, quick update.. I chose, and have just ordered... The Manix LW translucent blue! It was the first I had eyes for. Nearly ordered the new chappy, I'm sure I'd be happy with either and will end up with both! Thanks to all for the welcomes and help, can't wait for it to arrive. Joe I think...

Re: A first post regarding a first Spyderco

It's here! :) Love it, fits my hand perfectlyfit and finish is top notch and its the sharpest knife out of the box that I've ever bought. It's so light I kept thinking it wasn't in my pocket anymore causing a quick frantic search/check it's still there. One happy customer! Will post pics tomorrow if...

Re: A first post regarding a first Spyderco

Welcome to the forum! My only suggestion: consider purchasing used second-hand. That way, whatever you buy (assuming that you take reasonable care of it) can be resold for about what you paid. You can cycle through all your choices this way, and when you finally find the one that you really like, y...

Re: A first post regarding a first Spyderco

get the delica. it is my first spydie and what drove me deep into the 'hole' spydies may look funny and sometimes fugly to those who aren't familiar with the brand, but the moment you hold one, you'll realize its in a league of its own Ha, tbh the look of spyderco knives, at first, I couldn't decid...

Re: A first post regarding a first Spyderco

Since you're looking at a pretty wide variety of knives, I thought it'd be helpful to characterize them. - Delica: the standard bearer for "every day carry". Light, slim, discreet. Versatile and a great performer (in FFG variant especially) but a little vanilla. - Native: the "afi's choice". Simila...

Hi, thanks if I get impatient waiting for the frn chaparral it's between those two!

Re: A first post regarding a first Spyderco

I can vouch for the Native 5 Lightweight, it's pretty awesome and is my favorite Spydie and my EDC. It's got a sturdier feel and a slightly thicker blade than the Delica, a choil, and comes in plain edge, full serrated, and combo edge versions -- maybe get something with some serrations if you do a...

Re: A first post regarding a first Spyderco

Once upon a million years ago, I lived on a cattle ranch. Looking back on those days and the broad range of knife duties such a life entails, it would be hard for me not to recommend an Endura. It is longer than you mentioned but in this instance, I think that is a benefit. I love the Delica and th...

Re: A first post regarding a first Spyderco

Welcome aboard Joe. The Delica is a great choice. It was my trusty companion for many years and it always met my expectations. Lately, I find myself particularily attracted by the newcomer Spyderco C216GP Efficient :) ^^ That Thanks, atm delica is joint 2nd with the native, with frn chaparral just ...

Re: A first post regarding a first Spyderco

On a students budget I would start off with the Byrd Raven 2. It's a lot of knife for the money. It will handle all the duties that you listed. Thanks, if I were sensible that would Def be the one to get, I don't need more than that really, but then I see for $15-20 more I can get slightly better, ...

Re: A first post regarding a first Spyderco

I have to agree that the Delicas are great all-around knives. I happen to prefer the Wharncliffe blade on the Delica but the standard one is fine too. I’ve read speculations here that the FRN Chaparral will come in very close to the cost of a Delica. Had a look at the released pics of the frn chapa...

Re: A first post regarding a first Spyderco

Welcome to the forum Jeb. The Dragonfly is my favorite spyderco. It's on the small side, but it is a very capable little knife (we call it a little big knife). I would recomend a Delica/Native as well. Here's a size comparison between the Native and Dragonfly z4-28-2017.jpg Thanks for the welcome. ...
