Re: What's your favorite Spyderco that's a little bit of a "hidden gem?"

Sliverax. You get a lot of cutting edge for the size and weight. I epoxied a piece of nylon unto the lock bar of mine and made a poor man's smock button with it, it works incredibly well.

I'd also throw out most schempp designs. They come across as oddities but are actually very well designed.

Re: What's the one that got away?

Barong. I was unaware of spyderco back when they were in production, and even if I had been at that time I was wary of "weird" knives. I've since come to thoroughly enjoy and appreciate the different designs and the barong has eluded me ever since. I find them occasionally on flea bay or other place...

Re: Axes, Hathcets & Camp Axes

You can't forget the old ax heads you find gathering dust in antique stores and flea markets. It's still very easy to find a well made one at a great price. From there it's just a matter of hanging it. The handles you find in hardware stores are usually expensive and low quality so I'd recommend ord...

Re: Spyderco Military and Paramilitary 2 upcoming sprints and exclusives

I found myself all about Spyderco! Love all the steel and style options. While it is very unfortunate, i will apparently have to buy a "butterfly brand" (i hate typing that) if i want to try M4. Do i WANT to buy a non Spydie? HELL NO! All i have to do to get an M4 blade from the other company, is h...

Re: Which Spyderco Haunts You Most?

Probably the barong. Actually saw one that wasn't priced into the stratosphere on the fleabay the other day, but unfortunately the timing was wrong and it quickly went higher than I could justify. But at least I managed to find a decently priced khukuri last year. Part of me wishes I had been on to ...

Re: More button compression locks?

I'm not expecting to see this from the factory, though I could be wrong. I could see it becoming a popular mod. Ferider used a pivot to create a button on an amalgam, and I'm currently testing out using epoxy for a quick and removable job. https://forum.spyderco.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=83181 https:/...

Re: Phantom Lock: Tell me what this thing is and how is it compared to others?

Basically it is a backlock, but instead of pushing down on the lock bar you push down on the rear of the left scale. Definitely a novelty, but for the size of the knife it seems plenty strong. The best part of it is showing your knife buddies how easy it is to open and close then watching them strug...

Latest experiment.

This one was a pretty safe bet. I'd been kicking it around for awhile before I saw the smock but never tried it (I like to over think, which leads to hesitation and procrastination). As soon as I saw the smock it was an instant must have, and now that I have one in my pocket I had the motivation to ...

Meerkat clip

I feel incredibly silly for only just realizing that the meerkat clip holes allow for wire or standard clip. Have there been any others with that kind of set up?

Re: Pouches for work

I have this thing. Ended up taking the magnet out of mine. It's nice because it has a clip instead of a loop so you can take it off throughout the day if you want.

Re: Carabiner clip

I’m headed to a local hardware store today to try and find some screws to mount the clip, the prototype will probably be done this weekend. Because I cherish my Spyderco knives I will be mounting this to my Cara Cara 2 work knife in order to see how well it functions. EXTREAM CAUTION!!! If you make...

Re: Ideas for "sprint runs", NOT concerning steel (let´s dream...)

G10 sliverax? Give the rear of the handle just a bit more thickness but keep the forward part thin, emphasize the egg shape even more. Buuuut since you did say "let's dream".... An ikuchi smock dyad hybrid. So two blades, one serrated one plain. Ikuchi style fit into the handle. Smock style front fl...

Re: Spyderco new FRN Lightweights: What do you think will be the best?

I hope to see a military lw, not because I imagine it'll be supremely lighter, but because maybe we can finally have a left hand and/or tip up option.

Re: A Spyderco SAK?? Why not??

Well, they do have the clipitool series. That might be as close as we get, and they're not half bad and have room to grow still too. I could dream of a collaboration with one of the established multitool makers though, they all seem to be trying to find a way to reinvigorate their sales anyway.

Re: POLL: Possible new double blade folder: Would you like to see another version featuring a saw?

Hmm...most of the time if I want to saw I'd rather have a dedicated saw of some type, even at the expense of weight. Now if it could be interchangeable maybe. But that sounds expensive and small parts to lose, plus most tools or knives I've seen like that feel pretty gimmicky.
