AND if Spyderco did make a disposable blade platform, we could probably get a pack with multiple blades of Maxamet and S110V and Rex121 all for under $20.
It would effectively obsolete the Mule program.
Please step away from the crack pipe.
Don't judge me!

Re: Spyderco UTILITY Knife...

I'd be interested if for no other reason than to have a thumb hole on a utility knife, but ergonomics would be the deciding factor. I carried a Gerber EAB for about 5 years before I joined this forum, it was actually because I got sick of swapping blades that brought me back to the pocket knife wor...

Re: Are you going to Bladeshow 2021?

I live a little over 1 hour away and, until last year, have attended every BLADE since they moved to Atlanta - so yes I will be going. Not worried about COVID-19. Not that I'm ignoring the risk, just that I work at a hospital and I've been exposed so many times it's silly. Had both shots a month+ a...

Re: Spyderco UTILITY Knife...

I do have a serious question here. Why spend hundreds of dollars on a well-designed knife with great ergonomics, made from premium materials with a blade of carefully selected high-performance steel honed to a razor edge when you do all the real work with a 5 cent utility knife blade? I know a lot ...

Re: Spyderco UTILITY Knife...

This is what I meant by "not wasting" the middle of the blade. Maybe I should have said "revealing more of" the blade. Yes, I'd find more blade exposed useful, for sure. The Spectrum Energetics ute below exposes a lot more blade. (The one pictured not available and therefore highly sought after, na...

Re: My favorite handle design

Aside from the lock, I feel the same.

Re: What's Cookin'?

Nice! I had the most disappointing Thai fried rice last week... I went to a Thai joint in Alabama. The calamari was perfect and the Thai tea was wonderful. But, the main courses? It was as if someone forgot to season it. Just bland... Spicy and bland... Nothing I hate worse than a spicy morning move...

Re: Smaller P'kal

Thanx DD, Craig knows his stuff. I worked with him quite a bit while working on the folding P'Kal. At least a year in the designing. I can see where the Perrin finger Ring would be an asset to a "Clinch Pick". In my opinion, the most important thing about a self defense knife is that you don't drop...

Re: The Last Gun You Bought

+1 for pocket carry I haven't bought a new gun since my Seecamp. Almost no concern with printing, unless the pants are tighter than what I would wear. It disappears in my pocket and with the right load, is more potent than it should be. It's more than enough to get me out of a jam, to my vehicle whe...

This thread makes me wonder what a pikal swick would be like.
The picture on page one is almost identical to what that would be. Just a slightly different handle shape.

Here’s another question .... what cost more? The shoes you are wearing or the knife in your pocket?!
That's a dangerous question...

Those are the ones I want to dump. This is exactly why I would rather it to be Spydie exclusive. No one wants a bunch of ...

Agreed on both.

Provided BladeShow doesn't get canceled again, I'll be able to pester both of them and loiter at the prototype case. Atleast, until I'm shooed away...

I love this model. I'm "patiently" waiting on a few customs from Monsieur Perrin.

Re: Smaller P'kal

You mentioned "grappling". Are you a LEO? Where do you carry your Clinch Pick and how do you deploy it? The handle on our P'Kal is not quite 4.5", A 3" handle would be only for 3 fingers and might be hard to hold onto in a situation? The "Clinch Pick" shown has a Perrin Finger Ring which certainly ...

Re: Family picture day!

I'll see if I can get a picture of the whole group. Most of them, atleast.

I've been threatening to thin the collection out a bit. I've got some that I don't use and some that are just too nice for me to justify using...

...and I don't like that!
