Re: Hiking knife

the problem with asking this question on a spyderco forum is that no one will tell you you should just get a mora. ;) If someone asks the question on a Spyderco Forum it is assumed they are asking about a Spyderco product and it would also be needlessly rude (to the host of the forum Spyderco ) to ...

Re: Grip discussion

i pretty much always use the index choil if the knife has it. Do you do this with larger knives like the Manix too? I had a friend that EDC'd stuff like the Caly 3 or a Pacific Salt as his larger knife, and he's always reach for the choil. Even on big knives like my Police, Millie, etc. i do use th...

Re: Grip discussion

i pretty much always use the index choil if the knife has it. i do, however, use other grips as well. pinch grips and grips with my index finger on the spine with my middle finger in the index choil and the other fingers wherever they fall comfortably on the knife. i like having the extra control al...

Re: What's your 2 knife EDC system?

once you start realizing specific knives are best for specific tasks (and you are slightly obsessive), it's hard not to carry multiple knives on you. i sometimes have three on me (not including any in a backpack) and i just have to shake my head at myself. i still find a way to justify it though. :)

Re: Does anyone else wish for a standard scale color other than black?

i like black. it may be plain, but that's what the aftermarket it for. if your favorite color is coquelicot, that's great for you, but you shouldn't expect a company to make a whole line of knives with it so you can buy one. i personally don't understand all of the color choices by spyderco and some...

Re: What's your favorite Spyderco that's a little bit of a "hidden gem?"

i kind of feel like the yojimbo is a bit of a hidden gem. i suppose it's hiding in plain sight. i completely missed it for a long time and then it was like scales fell off my eyes and it became a useful piece of art. i know it's not an unpopular model, but it doesn't seem to have the following of th...

Re: Chap LW idea

does pakkawood look better in person than in pictures, because i don’t think it’s attractive at all based on the pictures. i’d rather see a nicer looking wood like ebony or maybe some bone scales or something. if you want to go classy, really go classy.

Re: H1

the native salt is not a clickable knife as far as i know. most people talk about a stiff action that is probably due to spring tension pushing the lock bar hard against the blade. that said, i can’t really flick my df2 salt either, so maybe you’re aware of some magic that i’m not privy to. i also c...

Re: H1

I carried my Tasman IWB in the ocean. It is now at the bottom of the sea and/or beach somewhere. Never again. i've never even had to adjust my pacific or native salt in the ocean. sorry you lost your tasman. :( It's a bummer. I really don't know how it came lose, I'm not the strongest swimmer so it...

Re: H1

i should've mentioned this also... regarding the dragonfly salt, i wouldn't carry it in my waistband, especially in the ocean. it's a small knife and is very lightweight. combine that with the fact that the wire clip (at least on my df2 salt) isn't very strong and sits too low on the knife for secur...

Re: H1

Regarding carrying knives in your shorts while swimming, I'll clip the SE Pacific Salt IWB while swimming in the ocean, and it feels pretty unobtrusive. I don't have a Native Salt or Caribbean, so I can't speak to them. i carry a se pacific salt iwb in the ocean as well. i also carry it iwb when ru...

Re: Where is the love for the Manix XL??

based on pictures, i thought i’d like the xl better, but once i got them both in hand, it quickly became apparent that the manix is the perfect knife (for me) as far as shape and ergonomics. the xl is just extra knife and handle that i don’t need even though i can appreciate it for what it is.

Re: H1

i have a se df2 salt and i like it. i sometimes wish it was pe because i personally don't find serrations as necessary or useful on smaller knives as i do larger knives, like the pacific salt that i use in the ocean. if you can swing the extra cost, maybe take a look at the native salt. it's a great...

Re: Yojimbo Love?

honestly, there is not much i like about the yojimbo when folded in my pocket, but it's just such a cool knife that i can't help but love it and carry it anyway. any critique i could come up with has to do with the knife as it sits in my pocket. unfortunately, the things that make it less than stell...
