Re: Reveal 6 Live!

Balisongs are illegal in the Netherlands. To carry and also to have at home. As it should be. I remember one if my baisongs picked it's way out of my safe, made its way into town a cut something. I didn't get in trouble because I had no control of the knife. It had a mind of its own. :rolleyes: sal...

Re: S35vn on the Tenacious...what does it mean?

I am of the opinion that S35VN alone doesn't justify paying double the price for a Tenacious coming out of China. Although that deal could have been sweetened if we saw some small CQI changes to go with the upgraded steel... Personally, I would have been all over this if it was using T8 screws all a...

Any plans for a new Crossbill variant?

I've always been curious about this model, but I don't see much of a point in getting a part-serrated or plain edge for my uses, unfortunately. The G10 version would have been nice, but apparently it's discontinued and likely not making a return. Having said that, what's the status on this one? I'll...

Re: Taking apart knives - part 2

I can’t recall ever having a desire to take any of my knives apart and I would be thrilled with a return to pinned construction. At least on the models I’m interested in. Most of the average people I’ve talked to about such matters feel the same. Enthusiasts usually feel very differently and althou...

Re: Appeal to bring back the stunning Titanium UK Pocket Knife

Personally I think that 20CV would be a lovely match to that titanium, but I don't even want to imagine how much such a piece would cost... If not, anything around the level of S30V would suit me perfectly well, that's more than enough for anyone. However, I don't think the titanium alone plus S30V ...

Re: Urban Ti Elmax

Perhaps they should seriously consider moving production to Golden. That would be the dream for me, the HH UKPK has completely converted me to slippies made in Golden, but I really doubt they have the capacity to produce so many different types of knives there... They undoubtedly have their hands f...

Re: Urban Ti Elmax

From what I've seen it's all about the prices, all of those TI variants went for some pretty wacky prices compared to what they offered. Nowadays I think that it's even harder to get into that market since many huge and not so huge Chinese makers are providing high-quality Titatinum models with grea...

Re: Why can't we have an upgraded UKPK?

Why would we want one? Because not every country in the world is enjoying the same relaxed knife laws as the ones where you live. In Europe, every new version or model of a legal knife from Spyderco is an event. I also have quite a few of those models, problem is that I can't take them outside the ...

Re: 2020 hopes and dreams

Regular production Cruwear Shaman in G10. Pretty tired of the whole Sprint Run drama by now, just make this one available to everyone who wants it. Urban BD1N/S30V, orange G10 and made in Golden with all that sexy CQI. The elusive Lil' Native slippie. Finally, a new Hawkbill slipjoint as a curveball...

Re: Why can't we have an upgraded UKPK?

For me personally, orange G10, Wharncliffe shape all the way: https://i.pinimg.com/originals/e6/ea/db/e6eadbdf4ba341c211c32be2ce878812.jpg That's obviously the Urban, which would be the perfect complement to the Heinnie S30V UKPK, but I would buy a UKPK equivalent just as quickly! As for steels, any...

Re: Urban LW pivot screw

The Maniago factory strikes again... From experience, I can tell you that the D-shaped pivot hole turned into an O-shaped hole by now, I've had that experience twice now with Italian FRN models, on a Squeak and an Urban. Unfortunately, for me personally, after trying every single little trick and ha...

Re: Large slipjoint Spydie, anyone?

I'm surprised no one has mentioned the PITS folder yet. It only has a 3" blade, but its still a good size and fills the hand well. Oh make no mistake, I am well aware of the PITS, but unfortunately, the only way to get one now is to pay very silly prices. Would love if they came up with a PITS 2, b...

Re: Large slipjoint Spydie, anyone?

Any type of slip joint coming from Spyderco is a good slip joint, big or small :) My only preference is that it comes from Golden. After the wonderful Red G10 UKPK, I feel like I have been spoiled when it comes to quality compared to the stuff that comes from Maniago. At this point, I would be happy...

We still have some solutions to find with Europe and export to other countries. Any new information regarding that Europe bit? You should see eBay in Germany...

Re: G10 UKPK officially makes a return! Heinnie Haynes Exclusive

Personally I am absolutely satisfied with this model and steel choice, I would much rather that Spyderco gave the UKPK a little break and focus on giving us new slipjoint options. I mean, even Zero Tolerance is getting into slippies now, doesn't get any weirder than that. I'm definitely looking forw...

Re: Any info on why the GB 2 is unobtanium right now?

I'm curious why you think it needs CQI? How would you know if you've never held one? I only have two GB1s but I've handled a few GB2s. I can't think of anything I would change. The action is very smooth, the blade shape is great, etc. Some don't like the limited access to the lock bar but the GB2s ...

Re: Cleaning up DLC...it's easy!

I hate feeling the blade of my 4V Shaman and feeling the surface rust all over it. I'm guessing there's no way to get rid of it without removing the DLC in the process? I may just OSPHO it and then tuff glide the blade or paint it. The only reason I'm disappointed is that I've never really used the...

Re: Any info on why the GB 2 is unobtanium right now?

If I had to take a guess (and keep in mind that this is just my educated guess without any evidence to support it...), I would say that the grinding that hollow ground blade in M4 can't be the easiest of tasks, and given that the GB 2 isn't the most sought after knife at the moment, I understand why...
