Re: Upland game/Small game knife

I am near 60 and have found (generally speaking) that I could clean anything with anything as long as it has a sharp edge.. I agree here. I understand some people have strong preferences, but to see the terms like "need" and "require" here to describe what a small game knife must be is just not tru...

Re: Hawkbill Comp Lock

The only one that I’m aware of is the Superhawk, which was discontinued many years ago and I would love to find out why. It's almost always a lack of sales. Usually plain edge hawkbills don't sell nearly as well as serrated edge hawkbills. Just look at the Byrd Hawkbill. The plain edge version was ...

They're just giving you edge angle options. 30 degrees at the tip or 90 degrees at the heel. :D

Re: I wonder if you guys would be interested in a Lil' Para3

I agree that the Lil Native comp lock is so similar that it seems redundant for a Lil Para 3.

I'm all in for a Lil Caribbean though. We're definitely missing a mid size choil-less comp lock knife. Cutting 1/2 inch off the blade to make it a little over 3" would be perfect.

Re: Micarta Shaman 2nd Sprint Run

looking at the specs there dosnt seem to be 'that much' difference in a shaman from a PM2 i understand the blade shape but what else am i missing here? Tip strength is another big difference. I've seen PM2 tips break off. Has anyone ever heard of someone snapping off a Shaman tip? I haven't. Everyt...

I think Phil Wilson mentioned a bird and trout knife in the S45VN thread. Could be a model to work toward?
I thought the Spyderco Sprig was Phil's Bird & Trout.

Re: Upland game/Small game knife

The Polestar has been working just fine for all small game for me. We must have different styles of cleaning. It'd be interesting to see a Spyder hole on a slender blade like a Stockman. It might end up a lot like the Ikuchi.

Re: Really Spyderco ... 5.2 oz for the Emphasis ?!

I'm confused. Everyone seems to love the Shaman, which is also 5.2 oz. and has the exact same blade length. The Emphasis is even a little longer than the Shaman in overall length. 5.2 oz seems fine to me. It's a large folding knife.

For the record, it comes tip down because that's Eric Glesser's preference for the PM2. The designer's preference is actually what typically determines the "factory" clip position.

Stay safe,

Well, now that answers the question. Thanks.

Re: Is it time for the PM2 to come with tip up carry from the factory?

If I recall correctly, Spyderco has mentioned this is in the past and they ship the PM2 with the clip tip down because they've noticed a majority of the PM2's they get back for warranty work have the clip positioned for tip down carry. :spyder: I see their point, but I don't think that's a fair ass...

Liner, frame and comp’ lock CONS : Detent ball. Theres a better solution to detents, I just know it.
I think that will be the next big breakthrough in knife designs. Someone will figure out a new cheap solution and it will sweep through all companies. We'll see it... in due time.

Is it time for the PM2 to come with tip up carry from the factory?

Most people on forums and YouTube change the PM2 to tip up. I'd say it's a very large majority. So why not have it come that way from the factory? Figured I'd create a poll.

Re: Any plans for a standard-sized Compression Lock Native?

Sure you can do this with a comp. lock too, BUT: The blade will NOT stay stable "half shut" but flop around and possibly fall shut on your fingers. But with a compression lock, your fingers should never be in the blade path. And you also have the option of closing it with 2 hands to prevent it from...

There's a number printed on it and it makes me wonder how many blades are produced on the first batch.

That number is a collector's club ID number and has nothing to do with how many were made. Spyderco did not tell us how many of the Bow River were made.
