Re: Speculative 2022 Discontinued List Discussion Thread

Z-Cuts? I don’t understand that at all. I have several and I love mine. I need to order some ASAP. I also have a desire for the Mantra. Have to think about that but I probably will start looking for one.

Re: 2022 Forum Knife

Locking, not a slipit but sub 3“ would be great. Any model that meets those criteria. If I could persuade Spyderco to make a knife it would be a Millie in SPY 27 or Magnacut.

Good job.

When I first got an Edge Pro many years ago I used to reprofile everything and would always take edges back to the ricasso.

Now if it bothers me enough, I add a sharpening choil with a small round diamond file.
If it bothered me more, I would do this.

Re: Only carrying one? Better count!

Keychain, Right front pocket, center console in the car (Rescue Assist just in case). The work bag has a Byrd Cara Cara, mostly they are on standby like the multi tools on the keychain and in the work bag. Ready when I need them.

Re: Wire clip to replace the spoon clip?

I have looked for one. I could not find one. I think the problem is that the slots the wires fit into are not on most scales. I would swap scales for the ability to get a wire clip instead of the flat spoon style. Wire clips are better IMO. Scale makers should offer replacement scales with the slots...

Re: How about a Forum Mug?

Preferably large and heavy. Retains heat better and your coffee stays warm longer. Or an insulated one of good quality with the Spyder on the side. Black mug red Spyder?

Re: Let's talk about cutting edge vs blade length

Interesting that scalpels came up. Surgeons mostly use a #10, #11, or a #15 blade. Those #’s are the most common shapes. In my experience the surgeon chooses one and uses that shape for everything that they use a blade for. So you put out a #15 for surgeon X for all their surgeries. The blade is ste...

Re: Random: General Spydie Chat

I like to test sharpness on paper, specifically the yellow pages/phone book. Sometimes I shave some forearm hair. The paper though I can feel and hear a difference as I cut when it’s sharp enough. I usually shoot for a good working edge, not hair popping.

The Smock itself is an awesome knife but so are the Shaman, PM2, Chokwe and Sage 5.
The Chokwe has a frame lock. Did you mean the Watu?

(Both are awesome)
Yes I did. Sorry. Fixed the original post now. Thanks

Re: Differing tabs on compression locks.

This is one of the reasons I think the Smock button comp lock should appear on more models. I have read other comments about comp locks on the forum and off hand I think the button addresses them all. I have several knives with comp locks, and I like every implementation I have tried but I believe t...

Re: m390/20cv vs s30v

For me, I like to have variety in the collection so I would prioritize a new steel (not better but different) and not black G 10. In my use of my knives AUS-8 performed well enough. Blasphemy I know, but I would buy an older Spyderco in that steel if I came across one. I love the Manix, and the G 10...

Re: Combo Comp/Linerlock

If you haven’t handled a Smock with the button comp lock yet you might not get it. It’s the best implementation of the comp lock I have tried. (Off hand I think I have 3 others). I carry and use multiple lock types but the CBBL, and button comp lock are my preference. Not to say my favorite knives, ...

I think it makes business sense.

I think I will prefer the original but I will 100% try the new one.

Re: Loss of sharp...over time?

In science, a hypothesis might begin with an observation. Such as “the knife I sharpened became less sharp (or dull) over time”. Then to test whether this was actually the case, one would find an objective way to measure sharpness. Other scientists would then be able to repeat that testing in attemp...
