Re: Permanent damage that you've actually done to a knife?

This Boker Top Lock was my main carry on a farm for about 6 years. Even used it as a makeshift hammer if it was necessary. The Kraton inserts eventually fell out, the screws disappeared one by one to the point that I used a COTTER PIN through the lanyard hole to keep the handle together. I wish I kn...

Re: Sal, Can We Form A Collective, And Order An Exclusive?

I've been part watch forums and I've seen small manufacturers make a forum specific watch. I think this is a good idea especially if "Spyderco Forum" would be printed somewhere on the knife. There have been multiple forum knives in the past. Last one was 2018 https://www.spyderco.com/catalog/detail...

Re: Sal, Can We Form A Collective, And Order An Exclusive?

Prices haven't been touched on. Hypothetically, since it would be a "collective" and not retail, surely there would need to be a steep discount from MAP, right? We would essentially be paying dealer cost because there is nobody else besides Spyderco to turn a profit. Would Spyderco even allow that? ...

Re: Is it possible we're stretching spyderco a little thin...?

I think you're confusing suggestions with demands . We're not carrying torches. It can't be a bad thing to have an abundance of suggestions and ideas floating around. And I remember Sal saying it's a good way to judge consumer demand for new products.

Re: Predictions for Reveal 6

Probably an unpopular opinion, but it would be nice to see the Endela in foliage green and a sabre grind combo edge to match the Delica and Endura.

Re: River's Edge PM2

That's a LOT of people who are going to be bummed.

If they're in mint condition, perhaps the same as the new version runs for now. Roughly, $80 for the Endura, $70 for the Delica, $60 for the Dragonfly.

Ah those were the days. Delica is $84 now

Re: Buying my first PM2: S30V or S110V?

It's hilarious that you all are pushing super steels to someone who says they only cut tape and is just okay at sharpening. 420HC would suffice. Right. The guy says: 1: mainly a fidget toy 2: only cut a little tape. 3: stressed NOT hard use 4: can't sharpen well. And people are recommending super s...

Re: Plastic Knives are BEST.

If you ever wear insulted leather gloves, you'll appreciate the heft of the g10 and liners instead of fumbling with a plastic featherweight. You can keep your red solo cup knives. :D

Re: River's Edge PM2

Every greedy flipper and their grandma will be flooding the site to get one. If a knife was ever a "lock" for big flipper profit, this is clearly it. Basically a lottery for $100+. REC might want to dunk their servers in liquid nitrogen to stay cool.

Re: Unpopular opinions

Seems like just an honest mistake to me I meant it as more of an industry-wide trend. Some blades with a clear, defined swooping belly are now being grouped into wharncliffes because wharncliffes became popular and everyone wants to hop on the hype train. It used to be a very specific blade shape. ...

Why would new molds and lock designs be needed? They already exist.
The original post said "Fish-Scale Pattern". That would need a new mold.
