Re: Cruwear micarta Bushcraft/Proficient

I didn’t realize the Crucarta version was an attempt to get the price lower than the S90V model. I thought it was just a better steal for a bushcraft type blade. I expected to and was ready to spend similar funds, any cheaper would’ve been icing on the micarta. ;) Same. I'm really bummed out the pr...

Re: The perceived need for instantaneous one hand operation has driven folding knife design into a dead end

I strongly prefer a knife that has one handed opening when it is legally possible. I don't see how having such a feature presents any downside so not having it would be a negative. the speed of opening doesnt matter to me though.

Re: Anyone else dislike the wire pocket clip?

I love the wire clip. I love it more than pretty much any object, concept or actual person. If I had to choose between the wire clip and continuing to breath air, thereby allowing me to conduct my basic life functions, I would be in a really difficult position. A lot of people say "god, family and c...

Re: Cruwear micarta Bushcraft/Proficient

I am one of the people who finds that polished micarta actually seems to "stick" to my hand in a really positive, secure way. Even if it didn't the handle on the bushcraft/proficient is simply "perfect" and has no need for texture in my opinion. Theres no such thing as a deal breaker for this knife....

Not at all. Kinda wish Spyderco would use the wire clip even MORE.
If there was a magic button I could press that would make every clip a wire clip..I would press it

Re: Sharpening a Knife

I know what my next stone will be! I also want one of those fancy ones BBB has, but they be 'spensive! Bonded CBN is utterly game-changing. I've had the resin-bonded version for over a year. No question it's expensive but it's such a dramatic performance increase that you just won't go back to conv...

Re: What will you be getting from the new reveal?

I'm so happy about the the dragonfly in k390. It's really good that's not a sprint cause that thing is going to fly off the shelves.

Re: Reveal 5 Live!

I don't think I can ignore the k390 dragonfly. I'm glad it's not a sprint so they won't be difficult to get.
I will also definitely want to have the new mule.

I'm shocked to say this but I think I've cooled on the swayback a little bit :eek:

Customers should boycott these types of businesses.
I'm just curious but what would you have them do differently? I have way more antipathy towards place like ebay and people who buy knives just to flip them for a profit.

Re: So what's your top 3 favorite steels? and why?

1. k390 - I think this steel is a really good sweet spot for a company like spyderco. the performance is on the extreme upper end of currently available tool steels. While I think a lot of companies would not be able to deliver this steel to consumers in a form that really takes advantage of the mat...
