Re: Straight Razor from Spyderco

Mike... I am guesssing a carbon steel to be used by you, here? If not, AEB-L would be my choice. Either way, i am looking forward to this project. OT...I though that Spyderco did their own heat treatment, or have I misunderstood the conversation here earlier? If this is privilaged info, apologies in...

Re: Straight Razor from Spyderco

I showed it here a few years ago, but the image host site went crazy...

I have a jpeg here and there, but this thread is about Mike's version anyway... :)

Re: Straight Razor from Spyderco

Mike...
It is good to know that you might be doing one with Sal... :)

I do think that a Spy Razor should be part of the Spyderco line... :)

I submitted one in early 2000's and it was too off the wall it seems...

Re: Linerless: Any issues?

A steel blade, G10 or FRN scales, and phosphor bronze bearings...the knife should never have issues apart from side play, which is not really a big thing in my understanding.

Re: Former "standard steels"

ATS-34 was Hitachi's version of 154CM. There were issues with cleaness in a batch of 154CM in the USA, and ATS-34"took over." In South Africa in the 90's, a batch of ATS -34 was sold in bulk to makers there, and most of it had inclusions that made it look terrible. Some makers had to remake knives t...

Spydies are expensive in NZ, and the range in the few shops that stock them, a tad limited.
I have compared images from catalogues and on the 'Net, and yes, the Polestar looks like a close family member. :)

Re: Spyderco Value Knives

Tenacious is one that I would love to see with a VG10 steel balde...just because.
The ergos and the edge which runs way back the ricasso, makes it perform above it's weight.

I will make a replacement blade for my Tennie when I actually get time to experiment.
Steel type? Watch this space? :)
