Re: Spyderco Province Photos

Just snagged one from Knife Center. It's one of those knives that you just have to have if you like full sized knives. 4V, sweet design, Spyderco quality.

Re: Anyone from or moved to Alaska?

I know two people that live in Alaska. I am not that close to them. I do not know much, and all that I can say is, there is apparently a big gun culture there according to them. In summary: Bears. Moose. Guns.

:D

That is all....

Re: Now's The Time: For A New Style Of Hawkbill

I am working on three Boomerangs at the moment. ( fixed blade ) Not folders, I know, but bendy edges just the same... :) I suppose the sheath would be tricky for a fixed blade....but I'd take a fixed hawkbill in a second. YES! Make it 4 to 5 inches long, full tang like the Jumpmaster 2, and like ev...

Re: Collectibles

I don't think I'm good at collecting things, but have 85 knives. If pushed, I could probably get rid of 5 to 10 of them, but I like all of them. I have not purchased any in 2019...was "laid off," so no purchases. When I get back to work there are at least 50 to 100 more I'd like to take a look at fo...

Re: Spyderco multi-tool?

Having recently gotten back into Spyderco knives I really enjoy the quality of build and the variety of designs, steels and blade shapes. I also enjoy seeing that Sal and Eric are so active in the knife community. I notice there are no Spyderco multi-tools. Are there any plans to bring out a line o...

Re: POLL: Who´d like the Native-family to become the general "coming in both comp.lock and backlock version" - line?

I do not have all of the knives being discussed yet, only the Native 5 in Maxamet(backlock), but I plan to buy a Shaman and Chief. I'm glad the Chief comes with a backlock. I prefer the backlock, as it looks much stronger. My two CF Yojimbo 2's have compression locks, which seems like a weaker solut...

If you’re looking for a Spyderco fixed blade for self defense I think the Waterway would serve you well.
I'll take a look at it. Right now the two Spyderco fixed blades that I want are the Street Beat and Ankerson/Sanders Bowie.

What percentage of your Spyderco collection consists of fixed blades?
40%

What percentage of your collection consists of fixed blades?
80% PLUS

Looking for more fixed blades. 3 inch folders are not good self defense tools.

Re: Count ‘em up and share

I have 85 knives, at around $20k invested. I don't have many Spydercos but there are at least 10 on my must have list. I know right where the money is going before I even make it.

Re: S30v

On a more meta level, I just find it humorous as fans of other brands don't do this. Certain brands still primarily use 154cm and their fans don't mind. Other brands use mainly s35vn and nobody says a thing. M390/20cv and no complaints. CPM154, 1095, A2, D2, 01. These are all primary steels for com...
