Re: Sydney fires

Just an update to let people know Bloke is fine. Dealing with the smoke but otherwise safe.

Re: Sage 5.2

I would take a framelock over a linerlock every day of the week but maybe not in the case of the comp’ lock. The position of the lock bar means it’s just not as functional to disengage.

I would prefer the button lock. Apologies if I’ve stepped on your toes with my suggestion Uraaguy.

Re: Sydney fires

Bloke’s probably outside with a hose in his hand!

This is the current status of active fires in my state, NSW, Australia. Sydney’s under there. Somewhere.

Re: Sage 5.2

Integral comp’ lock would be nice. Button comp’ lock would get my attention too.

Re: Street Beat Discussion

I lusted after the micarta Street Beat for ages, It was discoed and fetching big $s so never got one. If the micarta model was to roll back around I would get one for sure. Nothing wrong with the frn model but to me, it doesn’t have the soul of the micarta model. I've handled them both and while I ...

Re: BladeHQ M4 Jade Dodo

M4 put me off this run, much as I’m hanging out for a Dodo.

Condolences to those who missed out. The hype around this exclusive surely speaks to the popularity of the model. Sal, please hook us up with more!

Re: Caly 3/3.5 interest Poll

I might be interested in the 3.5. Sal has said that only the FRN model will be made in Taichung with screw construction. He also said that the original model would continue being built with pinned construction in Seki City. True. Not sure why I thought it was coming out of Taichung. So Seki it is. ...

Re: Caly 3/3.5 interest Poll

Micarta and xhp? Yes please. I don’t think bolsters work well with this design though. Screw construction would be good though. Agree on screw construction, particularly for the pivot, but no bolsters? Nickel bolsters are the cornerstone of this sprint! Spyderco is no stranger to bolsters. Smaller ...

Caly 3/3.5 interest Poll

To get a sprint run off the ground, a wise man once told me “keep typing”. So.... Who’s keen for a Caly 3 and or 3.5 sprint run with the following: - Polished linen Micarta. Black, Ivory or maroon - Nickel bolsters - Stainless steel. Coming from Taichung, so CTS-XHP? My preference would be for the 3...

Re: Stretched Stretch - continued from Straight spine thread

Hi Tims, The handle was designed to fit the hand. The blade was designed to fit the law. I did the same thing with the Delica. sal Not a knock on your design Sal, I can appreciate the reason it is why it is. It was more of a laws be damned thing Here in Oz, where you better be an Architect to carry...

Here’s a mildly relevant pic illustrating the room there is for extra steel in the current Stretch 2.

Hi Tims, JD,

Either are possible and both were made by the same maker.

From across the Pacific Sal, good morning.

What’s the best way to turn ideas like these from words on a page to a knife in the pocket?

Re: Knife dreaming

Well I got my own Fantasy Spyder Dream. Mine would be a super deluxe version of the C-60 Ayoob model. I would like one in either Carbon Fiber or a really jazzy type of G-10 for the handle scales. I would like the blade to be either M390, S110V, or M-4>> or if they would have to use a Japan Steel th...

Knife dreaming

Inspired by Kingrats ‘Spyderco Retro’ thread. Dear Sal, please design and build the following knife for me. I can’t offer much in the way of actual design, its more of a feeling, I’m confident you understand. It should have, at a minimum, the following attributes. -It’s the epitome of class. -It’s l...
