Re: Going against the grain

Bearing pivots - yay, more surface area for stuff to collect in!

Re: K390 PM2 | Testing

Between the PM2/para 3 and the police 4 - is there one you prefer ? Does one enhance k390 properties more ? (I guess it doesn't matter if one thinks the police 4 is too big of a knife)

Re: CPM M4 vs K390

So k390, maxamet, and 15v all take more aggressive edges than m4, but are still "tough enough" for typical folder use?
I hope bladehq/dlt/whomever does a 15v or 10v exclusive set, then
On that note - can't wait for the 3B collab

Re: Smith stones vs DMT stones.

The topic required a little research! DMT stones were the first of its kind I do believe. They’ve patented their process of developing their products. Via how its made SCI/DSC network the diamond dust is put on steel plates and are embedded into the steel by scientific process making a permanent bo...

Re: Micarta Shaman 2nd Sprint Run

In summary people don't want what they need, they want the object that reflects their perceived needs. People thought the base shaman was average (s30v is probably fine in most applications) - but the cru-carta is basically the Wrangler unlimited - people like the idea that their jeep has locking di...

Re: I wonder if you guys would be interested in a Lil' Para3

How would the naming work? Mini para 3 or mini PM2?

Besides, how will Spyderco solve the lanyard/clip situation?

Re: Micarta Shaman 2nd Sprint Run

Come on guys, Spyderco is potentially remaking the same knife with a steel that's 99.9% the same, and you guys are complaining it doesn't say Cru wear on the side?

Now I know why the 10v mule sold quickly, but the pma11 one hung around for a long time
