Re: My 2nd Byrd

I don’t tend to duplicate purchases but like them, (CaraCara), so much I have one of each blade variant.
Std, Rescue and wave. All are great in fit, finish and ergo’s.

Re: Lil Temp 3 released

+1 on the original green. Wondering if the indexing ‘divot’ is incorporated into the FRN scales?

Re: Official Plea for a not so "Lil" Temperance 3

Could the ‘Leafjumper’ fill this gap? I realise the blade is thinner but the ergo’s are similar.

Re: Mule Team Redux: Which steels would you choose?

CPM 4V and K390. And as there are no rules ;) can we get them with a Triple B heat treat?
Please...

Re: Cara Cara Rescue in orange FRN? AWESOME, thanks Sal!

Had mine a couple of years. No problems with it . It’s been in my pocket every time I am in the garden. I also used it for fishing until I got an Atlantic about a year ago. The only maintenance it receives is a rinse under warm water and a wipe down to dry it and sharpening on the brown stones of a ...

Re: Why did you join?

Hi, I’d lurked for a while following discussions and then had questions of my own.
I stayed because of the people. :cool:
I learn something new every time I check in. Sharpening ,metallurgy, ergonomics, history and the ‘industry’ . It’s all here.
Thank you Sal for making it possible.

Re: Reveal 7 Live!

This is the best reveal so far, for me anyway. Although my wallet may disagree. :eek:
Dragoncliffe k390, UKPK, Stretch, lil’ Native.
Not forgetting the new understated Roadies, at first glance I thought they were micarta.
Thanks Spyderco. :)

Re: Polestar/Alcyone still "just" in BD1 (without "N")?

I think that slow sales of the original versions and the shipping steel to China part of the cost equation are probably the limiting factors.
The Rock/Leaf Jumper may ultimately fill this niche as the handle ergonomics look similar.
Although they are backlocks.

Re: Spyder Classics: The C-54 Calypso ( the big one)

I arrived late to the Spyderco party unfortunately and missed out on a lot of the classics. I can still remember seeing the C-54 for the first time and the disappointment in finding out they were no longer in production. It is a quintessential Spydie for me , in that I judge all other models by this...

Re: Extreme LC200N (Accidental) Corrosion Test

If the liners are LC200 , wasn’t there something about LC not coping well with Sulphur.
This was when the detention balls were changed out for ceramic. Maybe there was a trace in the mud/slurry?

Re: Roadie with teeth?

I was reading the XL Roadie discussion last night and was thinking to myself, why is there no serrated Roadie? And today... :cool:. I would definitely be interested in this. The serrated blade on the Clipitool PE + SE was my introduction to Spyderco’s SE and is similar in shape and pretty much the s...
