FYI, we are still working on solutions regarding the unlocking of the model. Some have taken a ceramic stone and rounded the edge of the lock-bar in the lock well.

Sal, I repositioned the leaf spring a bit on my CF/G-10 Chaparral, and it's much more comfortable to use now.

Re: Predictions for Reveal 7

Here's my hot take for Reveal 7: Slysz Bowie 2 is coming. The hottest of takes. I've always wondered why it got discontinued even with it's substantial popularity. Maybe this is why... I don't claim to have inside knowledge, but ... on the most recent KnifeNuts Podcast, Levon stated that the Bowie ...

Re: Kind of a Big Deal...!

I love seeing this release. The Sage is one of my favorite Spyderco designs, and I think one reason it doesn't get as much attention as the P3 is the lack of steel variety. Great to see Maxamet on a Taichung model.

Re: Reveal 5 Live!

I’m really curious: why does the Swayback not have a wire clip? I thought of that as inherent to Spyderco’s Slysz designs.

Re: Sage 5.2

Hi Jmmd, We've had a "plunge" button lock in-the-works on order for several years. We are reaching that point where out maker is very busy and priorities for models are scheduled and rescheduled often. We squeezed the FRN Compression Lock Sage into the Sage series more for users than collectors and...

You would prefer a Button Compression Lock on Sage? To an integral?

sal
Sal, an integral would be interesting, but I’d love to see a button lock. If the button compression lock can’t be worked out, it would be great to see a Sage 6 with a plunge lock, a traditional button lock.

Re: Outstanding Ergos (Spydiechef)

I love nearly everything about the SpydieChef, including the clip placement. I just got a Kapara thinking I'd like the grip comfort more than the SpydieChef's, but I'm not sure that's true. The chamfered edges and tall scales of the SpydieChef work really well in my hand, and the Kapara though thick...

Stoked about the Swayback.

I was hoping the Slysz Rat would be next, but that Mouse Flipper he's been doing lately is insane.
He just showed his new Hummingbird model on IG. Looks great!

Re: Slysz Swayback

According to EDC Gear & Gun Reviews on YouTube, Spyderco showed the Slysz swayback at the USN Gathering over the weekend. Release date wasn't mentioned. Also there was a new small Nirvana, "coming soon."

Re: XHP Steel – History and Properties

Some of my favorite knives have CTS-XHP: Koenig Arius, Thorburn L51C, and Spyderco Chaparral. I don't get too worked up regarding steel types, but I like it. I'd be happy to see it on more Spydercos.

Re: SpydieChef Stock

Thanks, Kristi. Demand for the SpydieChef is well deserved — it's still my favorite Spyderco. Maybe if I could get hold of a Kapara, I could possibly change my mind? Hard to beat that SpydiChef blade. The kapara is so hard to come by I stopped believing in its existence. Very happy I picked up an i...
