Re: First post and advice needed

welcome!

if you already have a pm2, i would suggest a pacific salt with serrations. it would make a great compliment. and, if you search the forum, you'll find it gets tons of praise here and for good reason. if i could only keep one knife, my pacific salt would probably be it.

Re: Which should be the next model in Cru-carta?

🤣 i guess i'm alone in thinking the manix 2 is the ultimate workhorse spyderco model and would benefit from such a configuration? i vote for dlc and black linen micarta though instead of the satin and brown micarta of the new pm2. You are not alone! thanks. when i voted for the manix 2, there was o...

Re: Baby boom Jan 20th 1980.

Has anyone else noticed that there are between 50-100 forum members having 41st birthday today? It's a fact not well known except to those in attendance, but exactly nine months earlier was the 1979 Knife Collectors' Blade Exchange and Drunken Orgy. It appears the acorns don't fall far from the tre...

Re: Serrated H-1 vs. Serrated LC200N?

after my experience with both, i trust my pac salt to be more robust. i'm kind of sad to say that because the construction of the caribbean is way stronger, but the h1 steel is bombproof, especially in the thicker spine and hollow grind. i like both and they'll both get the job done, but if it's har...

Re: Caribbean for EDC - Plain or Serrated?

for a long time, i paired a plain edge (typically manix 2 lw or yojimbo) with a spyderedge pac salt. i still do sometimes. for days when i only want to carry one knife, i carry my spyderedge sheepsfoot caribbean. the caribbean can be carried in a pocket. it can be worn inside my waistband if i decid...

Re: C-60 Ayoob Campaign: No I Won't Shut Up

i would take spy27 in a denim micarta. i'm actually kind of surprised the yojimbo hasn't been released that way with mr. janich's original intent on having denim colored g10.

Re: Soap causing corrosion on H1??

does it ever get sprayed with cleaner? we spray our shower down every few showers we take and clean it once a week or so. maybe it's a more caustic cleaner? btw, i do carry a "shower knife" when i shower in a public gym shower. it's actually my workout knife that i just take with me to the shower. y...

Re: Does Spyderco Have a Knife w a Glass Breaker?

I keep one in my center console. The SALT model is H1 and just $15 more. Mine is VG 10 which considering how little I use it day to day is fine. It’s really just there for emergencies. Exactly. That is all that I plan to use it for. I'll get the H1 model because it is going to sit in the car for a ...

Re: H1 SE Tatanka LW Salt Anyone???

after more experience with lc200n, i think i'd prefer h1 in such a large blade. there's something about the toughness of h1 steel combined with the stout, hollow-ground blade that is just confidence-inspiring. that reminds me... i should get an aqua salt.

Re: Post up your Rit dye projects..

that's a really nice blue. great work! Thanks, I’m glad they turned out clean. On the Native I initially tried the nail polish trick on the spyder for a 2 tone but I couldn’t get the surrounding area clean without removing some of the polish so all blue it was. I’m planning on modding the Caribbean...
