Re: Para Military 2 Titanium

Oh, wait a minute, let me amend my previous post and say an integral titanium compression lock would interest me a great deal.

Re: Para Military 2 Titanium

Titanium without a framelock is just kind of... bleh... to me. Just titanium scales... meh... Now a titanium framelock PM2s I could get behind. How do you feel about my earlier suggestion to make it like the Brouwer? Just the lockside titanium, the other side something really contrasting.. wood is ...

Re: STIFF STIFF STIFF Chaparral

I tried the spring mod. Helped a little but the action is still not as good as other Spyderco backlocks. Shame. Still a great knife, just slightly flawed.

Re: Polestar/Alcyone still "just" in BD1 (without "N")?

Bd1n would push me over the edge. My only other hesitation is I heard the detents are a bit soft. Fix that and I'm all in.

Re: STIFF STIFF STIFF Chaparral

Chapparal would be a perfect knife with a weaker spring, or just a similar overall action to the rest of the Spyderco backlocks. Not sure why that choice was made for the Chapparal. Still a great knife, just with one drawback.

Re: 2021 Forum knife?

I feel the need to restate how fitting an Endela would be. Brand new flagship model that has been discussed for ages. The design is begging for an upgrade from frn/vg10. I could also get behind a rock jumper forum knife. There is the K390 Endela! I know, and I'm sure it's a terrific knife, and I ha...

Re: Solving the issue of things we ask for

Yes, I think a custom shop should exist. I think it could be done in a way that doesn't affect the sprint run business. I don't think we will ever see it. Oh well, you can't have it all.

Re: 2021 Forum knife?

Endela with g10/micarta scales. Any steel other than vg10. Endela, Cobalt blue g10, and Spy27 steel would be fine with me. Endela, any micarta, and 4v would probably be ideal for me. If I have to propose a particular micarta, polished maroon linen sounds good to me.

Re: Interest in Front Flipper by Spyderco?

I am pretty fidgety with my knives. I tried a well regarded front flipper out of curiosity. It took a good bit of practice/getting used to/break in period, but I eventually became proficient at it. It is sort of fun, but less practical than almost every other opening mechanism, as in it takes more t...

Re: Goniometers

Hi Vivi, CATRA makes a number of them at different price ranges that are quite effective. I have a portable one at my home and we use a large one in the Factory. Many of my teachers, like Cliff Stamp, Wayne Goddard, Ed Schempp and others have taught me that edge geometry is really more important th...

Re: Backlock is my favorite lock, even for fidgeting...

A lot discussed here already indeed, but I´ll never get tired if praising the Spyderco mid backlock. For me clearly the best locktype ever, for many reasons (all just MY 2c of course): - Most versatile lock with the most and safest ways of one handed closing ("safe" meaning as well for the fingers ...

Re: Backlock is my favorite lock, even for fidgeting...

I really just prefer a good backlock. My regular rotation is Police 4, Endura 4, a variety of Natives, and the Native Chief. We're really lucky to have the Native and Police/Endura/Endela/Delica/Dragonfly product lines - I hope they never go away. But if they do, I'm stocked up ;) My 2 favorite kni...

Backlock is my favorite lock, even for fidgeting...

I know "which lock is best" debates have been done to death, but I think it's important to remind the knife world how much backlocks are enjoyed and appreciated sometimes. In this day and age, it is probably the least used of the common locktypes, and has a reputation for being old fashioned, out of...

Re: Sal, Can we get CPM 15v?

B3, congratulations on being so close to the production line. Question is, is that a small or large pouch? Looks like a small one (Chime in if I am wrong) What does that say about the size of the knife? Pouch doesn't look small to me. Taking up a lot of handkerchief real estate in that pic. An aver...

I've only been on the forum for a few months but the amount of "I want" posts is staggering. I recognize that part of the purpose of the forum is to get feedback to Spyderco, but the constant demands are a little fatiguing. There is some space between the Chief and Native 5, but I feel like Spyderc...

Re: Endela the Native, Shaman = Stretch

I have also thought the same thing. We are so spoiled I agree. On the other hand it's not like we're saying we want new variations for free. We are telling a for profit business that we would spend more money with them if they made that. I say that to say that the TenGrainBreads of the world are ki...
