Re: What's your favorite Spyderco that's a little bit of a "hidden gem?"

So many have come and gone, and so many good choices already mentioned - but yeah, most of the fixed blades and the centofante iii deserve more love

Re: s30v spyderco's acceptable

I guess I should try using a lower grit finish to fully appreciate s30v - I generally like smooth edges, but I shouldn't make a pick up truck run laps

Re: Where's the 3V?

Bumping this up as a direct competitor of Spyderco will be releasing a PRODUCTION CPM-3V folder later this month. They were wise enough to see past the haters who say 3V should only be used in fixed blade tree choppers and folders should be reserved for steels with insane wear resistance only. Just...

Re: Spyderco Centofante and other Sub-3MM Blades: Afraid of breakage or no?

The centofante and others have been around for so long that if it was a problem, we'd have heard of them by now. 2mm is border line thick by traditional standards

Sal - the designs that you are most proud of, but did not do well commercially?

I know there's been a few designs that sal has put out that he spent years perfecting, but just did not sell well

The d'allara 3 and the polestar come to mind.

Any other examples?

Re: Caribbean SE Mega Thread

Great review, and funny, I've said before it looks like an upsized d'allara 3 (especially in sheepsfoot)

Re: Who's for replacing ZDP-189 with HAP40 laminate in regular production?

I'd take a ukpk or urban in zdp - would like to have a legal carry option that holds a fine edge well.

Spydercos zdp offerings are such a bargain

Consider the heat treat. The HAP40 Spyderco is receiving (despite being great) is nothing like their REX45 in regard to heat treat despite being virtually chemically identical.
What difference have you noticed?

Is it possible to have a thick abuse proof knife that also cuts well?
