Re: 2021 wish list!

[...] And a few of my own: - sprints/exclusives of the Kapara, Sliverax, Amalgam, and Brouwer ( DLT's cruple treatment would be so sweet of any of those, along with many other combos) [...] - Astute with s35vn (!!!!) A DLT cruple Brouwer and an upgraded Astute are my top wishes right now. You naile...

Aftermarket Bearings for Mantra 2?

Hey y'all, I recently came across this awesome maker who is doing caged ceramic bearings as aftermarket products for bearing knives: https://www.skiffmadeblades.com/collections/bearings I've got some in a non-spyder that I was able to get confirmation on sizing from a buddy, but I am wondering if an...

Re: Oh to be in love again...

Custom scales are everywhere at this point, I’ve got some natural g-10 on mine. Would you mind sharing where you sourced your natural G10 scales? I have seen the gorgeous wood scales out there, but I'd prefer a G10 substitute for the texture and durability. Also considering sanding down the stock s...

Looks like the sale might have ended? I'm not seeing any discount in my cart. Or do you have to actually "check out" to see the discount?

Love the lines, the blade profile and the liner lock. Maybe it will get the S35VN upgrade like the Tenacious at some point.
Sal said if the s35vn Tenacious does well then they'd consider giving the Astute the same upgrade. Fingers crossed!

I've got my toes crossed too :D :D

Re: Who Wants a High Carbon Native?

I have no interest in Low-Alloy steels. I think they are far inferior to high alloy non-stainless in all respects except for forging. To be honest, I'd much rather Spyderco do something in AEB-L or Nitro-V if you want something that will take a fine edge with good toughness. This mirrors my thought...

Re: Astute. The little big knife.

I’m a broken record. If we are talking upgrading little big knives to S35VN why aren’t we talking about the Dragonfly? Just a guess, buy there have been a number of super steel sprints of the Dfly. I also think VG-10 as a base steel is already a fair upgrade over 8cr13mov. Sign me up for an upgrade...

Re: Who Wants a High Carbon Native?

I'm honestly not a big fan of DLC in general, but I can see where DLC 52100 would be very practical. The KW grey variant is quite stunning - has a subtle dressy look to it but would fit in anywhere. And I bet it would be a strong seller as a Native. Let's make it happen :cool:

Who Wants a High Carbon Native?

Hey y'all, After carrying my Super Blue Caly 3 for some time, I think I have been bitten by the high carbon bug. For me, I love the sharpening experience, the toughness, and the natural patina. The only sadness is that although I love the Caly, right now the Native 5 is my perfect Spyderco - just ca...

Tracked down a decently priced almost new 52100 Millie CF on the secondary - my first Millie in one of my favorite steels. Can't wait!!!

Re: GB Air Return?

I bought and sold the air 3 times The detent was soooooo weak I didnt feel comfortable carrying it in pocket, and then it had no clip I would buy one in a heartbeat if it comes back with a wire clip EXACTLY the same here, down to bought & sold 3 times :-) Wire clip, fix the detent, I'm in 100%

Re: More 52100?

I just came to the forum tonight to start a thread about high carbon Natives.

Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes!!

52100 would be amazing, and how about we throw in a super blue Native to boot?

I wish they would sell the Spydie hole cutouts. I've always wanted one. They are so cool +1000 I'm excited by the possibilities here! There are a handful of models I'd be looking for, but I wonder how or if they'll be able to preview inventory? But if anyone can pull off something this ambitious, i...

Re: Just for fun. What configuration?

My two dreams (both with thinner stock (2mm) and ground to .010" BTE):

Native 5 in K390 with contoured Terotuf handles - let's say gray or seafoam
Caly 3 in 52100 with contoured marbled CF scales

From the following website: https://agrussell.com/knife-articles/blade-grinds “A sabre grind is either a flat or hollow grind where the primary bevel (the grind) does not cover the entire width of the blade, leaving some portion unground.

Re: Black/Gray Zome + Damascus Delica and Endura Distributor Exclusives

In the second post on this page, I confirmed they were hollow ground... I think of hollow and saber as different grinds - hollow has a concave shape, whereas the saber is flat. In this image, 1 is a saber grind and 2 is hollow grind: https://i.imgur.com/IHX8Car.png Though I guess you could call bot...

Re: Black/Gray Zome + Damascus Delica and Endura Distributor Exclusives

... and I answered my own question by reading the GP Knives description more carefully:

"This Limited Run version comes with a saber ground D.P.S. 15 Damascus/VG10 laminate blade and gray and black Zome FRN handles."
