Re: How can we get more women interested in Spyderco knives?

Highly stainless, tips that aren't as pointy/pokey, feminine colors, ease of operation.

Re: Pricing question on scales

https://i.imgur.com/3xfezoV.jpg I think they look great all black Wow, they certainly do. I don't think DLC blades get enough love. I do like both Satin and stonewash finishes, but in the end I buy knives for utility. DLC has a practical purpose and I'd love to see more non-stainless DLC options.

Re: Salt vs Salt 2

I would prefer the more aggressive serrations. The more aggressive they are, the more likely I am to buy a sharpmaker to make sharpening much simpler. If the serrations are not aggressive, I feel the need to do what I do currently (sharpen each serration individually), which is a tedious process. Si...

Re: Native Chief - Can we get a heartbeat?

In all seriousness, what is the likelihood of sprint runs? Buy a standard model and the chance will be higher :D We dont have any sales numbers, but I hope that Chief will be popular enough that we get a sprint run. Yes, its a large one, so people are not jumping on it like on Para 3, Native 5, but...

Re: Salt vs Salt 2

Those scratches are similar but not identical. Also, look at the H in H1 on the blade. Different color.

Re: Salt vs Salt 2

How does something sharp snag on something cuttable? That makes no sense. Cardboard sucks with serrations in a lot of cuts. A lot of things get hung up - just not as smooth as PE. They can be great, if very sharp and used right. Nothing flies through a heavy nylon belt like SE, when pulled through,...

Re: Videos of your Spydercos in use

Man... since I don' have (and don't want to have) a youtube channel, I guess I'll finally have to figure out that "streamable" - thing... (someone's still waiting for high-speed backlock closing vids anyway... :D ) The last time I tried to use streamable, it informed me that my IP address had been ...

Re: Salt vs Salt 2

Which one has the smoothest scales? I often have cuts and scrapes on my hands, and the sharp edges on the scales of my byrd rescue 2 can yield excruciating pain when I attempt to reach past the knife when clipped in my pocket. It has forced me to carry it loose in the pocket. This is another reason ...

Re: The PERFECT Double Bladed Folder?

The issue with the tusk is that both the blade and marlin spike are too small for the typical ropes used on dredges, shipyards, or any large boat.

Re: Just ordered some Nano Oil *cough snake oil cough*

I am probably going to try marine grease soon. I like the thought of a barrier around the pivot and washers that prevents sediment from getting into the pivot. I also prefer a very tight pivot with red loctite (something I need to pick up soon). I'm willing to bet you could even (occasionally) blast...

Re: Prospects for more Manix 2 backlocks?

I would love a Manix backlock keeping the manix liners. Thinner yet sturdier. There are MORE than enough lightweight options. I love backlocks.

Re: The PERFECT Double Bladed Folder?

My perfect double bladed folder would be one with a Military blade, a sheepsfoot SE blade (byrd rescue 2), and a 4 inch marlin spike on the other side, all 3 backlocks, all LC200N (including liners).

Re: One hand opening

Even in the 80s this was the first thing I tested on a knife. Where I grew up, a mate on a charter boat wrapped the leader around his hand incorrectly and a blue marlin pulled him in instantly never to be seen again. Had he had a spyderco clipped to his pocket, he could've cut that leader before he ...

Never regretted a purchase. No matter what, it is a learning experience. I would essentially have to receive a defective model to regret the purchase.

Re: Just ordered some Nano Oil *cough snake oil cough*

While I firmly believe there will be no perceivable difference in a knife from one motor oil to the next, I just thought I'd mention that an excellent youtube channel "Project Farm" has recently tested numerous motor oils in a controlled and unbiased fashion. So while in a knife, only the lubricity ...
