nice color, nice knife ;) it's also thinner behind the edge than my other N5's...

Oh that's very interesting - do you have measurements to share by any chance?

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

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. If someone says “sabre hollow ground” you know the blade has...

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: C41PTBL5 Teal S90V Native 5 lightweight

Have there been any plans or rumors for a Teal G10 Native? I'm thinking of grabbing this guy, but vastly prefer the linerless G10. But also don't want to miss out on a teal, so I'm thinking I should probably grab one while it's still available...

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."

Re: SmallFly 2!

Anyone know if there will be plans to release a trainer down the road? I guess you could always dull this one to practice with before bringing it back sharp, but it kind of hurts my soul to even suggest such a thing...

BUMP!

What's going on with these knives? I keep waiting, but they haven't hit the stores yet, have they?

Nope, not that I've seen. Still waiting (im)patiently!

Re: Astute First Impressions

I think this might be my favorite new spyderco in some time. It's probably just me (men's small glove size), but the handle absolutely melts in my hand, and the palm swell is magical. I know hoping for a sprint is a pipe dream, but that is where I'm at right now. Such an incredible design!

Re: Astute First Impressions

thanks for your review and pics. how is the opening? the hole doesn't seem to line up the best with the contour and is obscured on the other side as well. can you still spydie flick it? It took a few minutes of practice for me, but definitely flickable. It's more of a flick "up" than "out", i.e. pa...

Re: Slim or none?

The Astute should have been a Seki backlock. It would have been nearly perfect! Definitely should have been made somewhere with sprint potential! I came here thinking of starting a similar "we should sprint the astute" thread. I would love it as a backlock, but would definitely get bitten as I do t...

Re: 1st Impressions Of The New SpyOpera

Bummer that it's pinned, especially with the bearings as those get gunkier for me than washers. Still excited for mine to arrive though, and given that I'll be using it as a gentleman's knife hopefully it'll stay clean and won't ever need disassembly-level servicing.

Re: Sun/Moon Chappy

I am super stoked. I've had all the chappy variants at one time or another; the frn is the one that has stuck around in my collection. That said, I love love love the smooth G10 Natives, so very excited for this piece to keep its frn sibling company.
