Re: No POLICE

Since you seem to like FRN, maybe you can wait for the Police FRN lightweight that was revealed. I think that's going to be in VG-10. The sample we saw did not have the POLICE logo. The downside here is you might be waiting a year or more.

Re: Fake manbug? What the heck

Are you sure it was a Rhino? There actually is a Spyderco Battlestation and it looks similar to the Rhino. BladeHQ claims to still have some Battlestations in stock.

Re: What Spyderco is in your pocket today??

Got this on Wednesday.. quickly becoming a favorite! I got it about a week ago, too. With some places selling it for $147 now, I think more people should check it out. There's only 1 or 2 reviews of it on YouTube from small channels. Not many people are looking at this gem. https://i.imgur.com/d5yn...

Start watching at 2:00. Eric himself is calling it the Paramilitary 3.

Re: Eric Glesser breaks down the Para 3 LW!

One thing that has to be brought up though, as I know this is something a few people have mentioned (and i apologize in advance if it was answered already), but with the edge running all the way back, why are so many spyderco models not built with a sharpening notch at the rear of the blade (for sh...

Re: Mule Team

Why would you be testing steels you want to see in upcoming folders in an abusive way? Isn't that what Spyderco does with their steels to test them? And isn't that what the Mule project was? An extension of Spyderco's arduous testing to give feedback? If people won't be testing a steel by pushing i...

Re: Mule Team

a folding mule would make more sense. But it would make less sense for the program because part of testing the steels is putting them through very abusive tasks and the last thing you do with a folder, especially a lightweight, is a very abusive task. Yes, they'd sell a lot more, but how much would...

I was making the comparison because you mentioned you're only after extreme cutting now.

Re: CTS-BD1N Where does it fit in?

I'm surprised you're looking forward to BD1N after having written off S30V and S35VN. It's impossible to really say how it will perform exactly, without knowing how hard they're running it. That makes all the difference. But don't count on it out-cutting S30V.

Re: Crazy deals @ Sierra and other places

FYI for anyone that was balking at the $211 price of the Lil Temperance 3... CutleryShoppe, Walmart, and Amazon have had it for $147.36 for the last few months. I just got one from Walmart and it's great. I assume Walmart and Amazon are just price-matching CutleryShoppe while their deal lasts?

Re: Ganzo knives...Spyderco/BM clone

I used to be like him. I viewed a knife just like I viewed other tools like a screwdriver, hammer, wrench, etc. Would you ever pay $150 or more for a screwdriver? Probably not and you'd probably think someone that does is crazy. But now here I am.... having just bought a $200+ Lil Temperance 3. Not ...

Re: Issue with my Tenacious?

Looking at the bottom picture, I think you're good because of this.... is the edge of the top half of the opening hole knocked down, yet the bottom half is very crisp and almost feels sharp? If so, you probably have a real Tenacious. I haven't heard of fakes with that trait. And yea, my Tenacious's ...

Re: Next Reveal is due when?

Well, at least they've managed to consolidate the inquiries, going from "When's that knife coming?" to "When's the reveal coming?" It has literally traded one set of questions for another. Maybe you guys are just joking, but I don't see those as being the same at all. "When's the reveal coming?" is...

That's a knife I'm surprised you never see or hear anything about.
Outside of this forum, the Manix LW is one of the most talked about Spyderco models.
