Re: Collaborations - Your Top Five Spydies

Jerry Brouwer - Brouwer
Ray Mears- WolfSpyder
Lance Clinton - Siren
Alistair Phillips - Kapara
LionSteel - Lil' LionSpy

There are many others, but these are the first that jumped to mind, so I must like them better than the rest, right? ;)

Re: Your suggestions please

Lil Native, backlock or compression, dealer's choice.. Cricket.. perhaps the greatest blisterpack-opening tool there is, it always comes in handy around Christmas time! Brouwer.. if you can get past the clip placement (MXG deep carry helps immensely), this is one of the most deceptively ergonomic Sp...

Just put new scales on my GB2. Sort of "new knife day" but with an old one! :)
Those scales are awesome! GB2 for me today also! :)

Re: Unpopular opinions

My most unpopular opinion.. brace yourselves now.. People who carry knives daily, but only cut apples and open letters are "users" too! There, I said it! I’ve had a knife in my pocket every day for over a decade. In a given day, I may open mail/packages, cut up an apple at work, cut a loose thread ...

Re: unreal!

The Dealer Locator is such a useful tool that I feel a lot of people are unaware of.. I stick to buying from the approved vendors listed by Spyderco and haven't been burned yet..

Re: Spyderco Lock Type Preference

I genuinely do not think I have a lock preference. I thought I was the only one haha! My only true lock preference is that the lock keeps the blade safely open! I guess if I was forced to rank lock types it would look something like.. Comp, back, liner, RIL > CBBL > BBL I don't dislike the CBBL, I ...

Re: Do y'all know where to get custom wood scales made?

^ +1 for Match Anderson. He did some monkeywood scales for my TRM Neutron that turned out absolutely fantastic! He does scales in pretty much any wood you can think of and everything I've seen posted online looks great! I know from his social media posts that he does Manix and Smock scales. I also k...

Re: How important is scale color?

My primary motivation for buying a new knife is usually to try out a design or steel that is new to me. Scale color doesn't play much of a role for me when selecting a knife.. unless I really despise it (most Zome options, any sort of flamboyant pastels or "rainbow" anodization..yuck). Perhaps due t...

Re: Strong Smell

My dad said, "Buyer beware." I am sure he did not coin the phrase. Caveat emptor, quia ignorare non debuit quod jus alienum emit ("Let a purchaser beware, for he ought not to be ignorant of the nature of the property which he is buying from another party.") Another good rule is that if it’s too goo...

Am I the only one that sees it?

No, you are not haha.. It was the first thing that came to my mind as well! David's proposed knife has some size/grind/lock differences, but the overall profile looks quite similar to me.

Welcome David!

Re: First Impressions of SPY27 Steel

I've been very pleased with SPY27 so far. I haven't used it for any sort of crazy cutting, or sharpened it yet.. but the factory edge on my Para 3 LW has held up well for the light-use tasks I've used it for so far and has stayed very sharp. Yesterday, I accidentally slammed my edge down on some met...

Re: Best Spyderco for the $$

This is a tough one to answer because it is so subjective.. everyone is going to have a different opinion here. There may be as many different answers as there are responses.. If I were going to make a recommendation to someone selecting their first Spyderco, I'd ask them about their general knife s...

Re: What was your 1st Spyderco?

Compression lock Lil Native for me.. I didn't realize it at the time, but the Lil Native had pretty much just been released when I bought it. I'd been into knives for years and years prior to buying my first Spyderco, but had always been "too poor" to buy "good" ones.. got a nice raise at my job and...
