Re: What is the status of the CPK?

There was a "sky is falling" moment around the time the original thread started when the border folks were seizing flipper knives and one of the big knife stores put up post about all locking one hand openers being verboten but that all passed. I do recall that, and the whole deal with the then new...

Re: What is the status of the CPK?

Interestingly, there's nothing specifically Canadian about the CPK... That statement is absolutely incorrect. The CPK is named so for the Canadian forumite Liquid Cobra who started the formal request for this knife: https://forum.spyderco.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=79614 I do indeed stand corrected, t...

Re: What is the status of the CPK?

Actually the Canadian pen knife would as well be a German pen knife, right? Since the laws for you guys don´t mention any blade length limit, but "just" that one is not allowed to carry a folder that is BOTH locking AND can be opened one handed, pretty much regardless of the size, correct? Interest...

The first Delica I bought from Knifecenter in 2005 was $46.95:

The price in 2015 was around $69.95:

Street price today is $84.00
IIRC, 2017 was the first year of MAP (@ 60% of MSRP). That year the MSRP of C11PBK was 114.95, and MAP was 68.97.

This place has some really good deals right now. Does anyone know if they’re a reputable dealer?
This is very obviously a scam website.

Re: Crazy Good Deals Part 2!!

Anyone ordered from here before? Are they good? I believe they're a drop shipper, so probably not "good", but OK if you don't mind slow shipping. I've purchased other items from drop shippers before, and they took a while but they arrived. I would imagine you might end up with a pending order for a...

Re: Pac salt green frn lc200n shipping to dealers!

you mean that the Pac Salt 2 has a more positive blade angle than the Endura? Yes, if positive angle is in the direction of opening, I think so, although I don’t believe the blade travels a larger arc from open to close (crudely measured with a pencil on a notepad). Here’s another illustration, I s...

Re: Pac salt green frn lc200n shipping to dealers!

I just got one in SE, and I’m intrigued by the not-so-subtle differences in blade shape between this and the Endura 4 FFG: taller blade, larger Spydie hole set farther back into the ricasso, higher thumb ramp angle (due to both of the previous), slightly more jimping, more obtuse angle formed betwee...

Re: Community Sharpening Journal

I'm thinking of getting this stone to be my reprofiling stone... I don't have that stone but I have the DMT D8C (the 8" coarse uninterrupted surface stone), and I wouldn't recommend it for reprofiling. It's good for putting a toothy edge on hard steels, but it would be relatively slow for reprofili...

I just had to . . . . A different approach: https://i.imgur.com/PFqjouB.jpg Aftermarket black micarta scales from RC Bladeworks. They're close but not quite as perfect as the Spyderco micarta scales. In particular the contouring on the edges of the scales is flat and not rounded like the Cruwear mi...

Re: Reveal 4 Live!

Excellent stuff here, very impressive! As early as this morning I was sure I didn't need another knife... I found it interesting that the Rex 45 Manix 2 G10 and Manix 2 LW sprints appear to have different blades. From seeing all the blade swaps that have been performed between G10 and LW models (e.g...

I hope this release is a success so that Spyderco might consider being more open to releasing new scale material.
Considering that the pre-order has already been closed (for now, it says 'additional quantities available soon'), I'd consider it more likely than not that these will be popular.

The 'Reveal' has only been around since last year, but the first was Friday, Jan 11, 2019.
