Re: Help me decide which spydie to buy next

If the sheer length of a handle COULD offer a full four finger grip JUST on the handle itself (so without using a choil), but does not, cause a choil places the guard to far backwards and leaves only room for three fingers behind it, you don´t like it? I think this is where we see a gap in the Spyd...

Happy Birthday

I never scored a hole-in-one. But I have hit a guy once. They told me to yell "FORE", but I was too busy saying "ain't no way that's gonna hit him!"

Re: Where is my Bow River ?

Lol, wow...this April will mark 2 years or more? Since the Bow River was in the making. You're right. The "Spyderco/Phil Wilson Bow River" thread began on April 1, 2017 when it was revealed that the collaboration was happening but a steel wasn't selected yet. April 1st.... maybe it was an April Foo...

Re: Mule Team

Personally, I think it would be great to have a Mule in a cheap(ish) steel in constant supply, like the Mule Team 05 in 9Cr18Mo that was $19.95. People who want to try making a handle of their own or simply wrap some paracord would have an easy and pretty cheap way to get into the world of Spyderco....

Re: More on new Spyderco Light Weights: Let's discuss!

I don't think a lightweight version of the Shaman makes sense. The whole point of the knife is to be big, heavy duty, and beefy. Making a plastic lightweight version would be so opposite of the model's intentions.

they don't show up on Ganzo's own website anymore, which is where I looked.
Well, that's interesting. Gearbest is also showing some as discontinued, although some other "Spyderco tributes" still show up as having hundreds in stock. Maybe they've stopped.

Re: How do we define sharpness?

Is it in what materials it can smoothly and consistently cut through, without damaging the material in some other form, or, is sharpness very subjective? Sharpness is only how acute your apex is at a given point in time. When you talk about "consistently cut through", you change the topic to be abo...

It apparently showed in stock and he ordered it a few weeks ago but still hasn't received any notification of it shipping.
I think it took around 35 days before I received mine. If your friend took the "free shipping" then it will come via unregistered air mail, so he won't get updates.

Re: Ganzo knives...Spyderco/BM clone

They seem to have stopped making all the Spyderco looking models although you can still find them on eBay. As for quality, it probably wouldn't match PM2 quality, but neither does a Tenacious. They 100% still make them. In fact, they still make the exact model shown in this thread, along with many ...

No, I'm talking about the older ones Sal spoke of. I have all of those on that page.

I think you're misinterpreting what Sal said. I think those are the older ones he meant. That RWL34 is a few years old and still available.

Re: Light Weight LC200N Kapara?

Has there been any serious testing comparing S30V to LC200N? Is the edge retention about the same? If so, then would it be feasible to entirely replace the S30V base models with LC200N? I think people may like that change even if the whole knife isn't 100% rust-proof.

Re: lil manix 2, if dreams came true

Only problem is the handle. If you make that any smaller, you would have to use the choil to hold the knife. If youre ok with that, I can't think of any other issues. Exactly. I don't think people realize that the handle will feel completely different. It will essentially be a new model.... so why ...

14c28n is more expensive.
So is BD1.

The Byrd Raven 2 is BD1 at $45 most places. Some have bumped the price up to the low $50's, though.

The soul of the Okami is in the locking mechanism. Buck essentially already did that lock design with the Marksman. Would Spyderco do it, too?
