Re: Caly3: my favorite EDC

Still patiently waiting for the next evolution of the Calypso family. I'll even take a G10 Urban (which is a chopped and channeled UK, which is a slip joint Caly3)

Re: Where to purchase GEC?

Hunting down a gec is like collecting sprint Spyderco. Good luck

I wish there was another maker in the same price and category

Re: Has K390 "obsoleted" M4/REX45/HAP40?

I guess I was more referring to "obsoleted" in regards to hype. The reason I even bring this topic up is, REX45 took off in popularity after Shaun's brass rod carving video, and then K390 was announced as regular production. We have a handful of knives available regularly in M4 (GB2), and I'm guessi...

I don’t know what K390 has to do with those high speed steels.
I was just referring to Spyderco's line up.
Now that we have a tool steel as part of Spyderco's main line up, will we still get more of the other steels via exclusives and sprints?

I mean obsoleted as in, will Spyderco make more knives in M4/REX45/HAP40, or will they just stick with K390 from now on

Re: Upper Tier Sharpening Systems?

I asked a similar question awhile back JD and the overwhelming response was to go for a Hapstone V7 from Gritomatic for the money. An added bonus is that you can use your sharpmaker rods with it. I think they V7 is out of production and the new version is the V8, but it still seems like the best ba...

Has K390 "obsoleted" M4/REX45/HAP40?

Once K390 Seki knives came out, it seems like everyone wants K390 everything
I'm guessing K390 is close enough for practical purposes

No one seems to miss Super Blue or Vtoku 2 that much, either

They're gaining popularity all around

Re: Has low supply or over demand killed your interest in a brand or model?

Yeah, I wish gec kept some core models with mass appeal around. I just want a case with better finish! Seems like it's case, or custom, when it comes to traditionals, and if I'm going to pay secondary market rates, I'll save my money and get a full blown custom Chris Reeve of late worries me a bit. ...

Re: Victorinox photo and discussion thread!

Who makes a good leather pouch for SAKs? I love these tools, but that soft scale material gets eaten by keys (heck, they come pre scuffed from the factory sometimes)
