Re: Tell us about your Spyderco Knife of the Year 2019

Bought a lot in 2019... Maybe too much. My top knife is the Spyderco Subvert collaboration with Black Snow Customs. The fit and finish is next level and action is as good as early generation grimsmo norseman... But at a sliver of the cost. Absolutely rock solid lockup. Zero blade play and it guillot...

Re: Shaman Cru-Wear Sprint Run release ?

I am pleased to announce that there was a special meeting for management on this thread and they decided to make another run of brown canvas Micarta Shamans. We'll use a different, but complimentary steel and make twice as many as the first sprint. sal Thank you very much for responding to the comu...

Re: Spydiechef Rusted After First Use

The Caribbean also needs to be updated...

From the site:
leaf-shaped blade is precision machined from LC200N- a nitrogen-based martensitic steel that holds and edge extremely well and is completely rustproof

Re: recommend a spyderco to a knife enthusiast

Too many variables in the question but if this is their first Spyderco of recommend a Sal or Eric designed knife.

Probably a Spyderco military fluted titanium if they can find one.

Otherwise any military variant. I used to be a delica fan but the military gets more pocket time.

Converted to JPEG and it submitted. It didn't like my PNG for some reason.

Re: 2020 Spyderco Forum Calendar Contest!

Is the contest upload utility still working ?

https://www.spyderco.com/contests/calendar/

I get errors uploading the high resolution version. I've triple checked file size but it won't work :(

I've tried from two computers and my phone with the same results.

Re: 2020 Spyderco Forum Calendar Contest!

Spyderco Subvert out and about for a hike. A collaboration piece with Nati Amor, and also favorite Spyderco of 2019. I've carried this knife through the chills of winter, into the rains of spring, and the heat of summer. This knife is massive but as a reward for carrying around it's girthful frame, ...

Spyderco factory outlet and the spyderco friction folder

Sal and crew, Thank you for running a great shop. I am in Canada but am fortunate enough to have coworkers who live ~15 minutes from spyderco hq. They popped in before Christmas and to buy/proxy me 2x spyderco friction folders (great knife). But it didn't stop there. The staff threw in a free cricke...

Love it, looks superb. Has an air of quality / old school about it.

Id love an Endura in it.
I am considering a ZDP-189 endura with the same treatment, but in a different wood.

Just got to think of which wood... Maybe purple heart?

Spyderco delica with cocobolo scales

The delica is one of my favourite spyderco knives. I am aware of the pakkawood delica at knifecenter... But it still wasn't nice enough. - solid cocobolo scales - carbon fiber back spacer - deleted the hardware holes - deleted the lanyard hole She cleans up nice! https://i.imgur.com/mSvYWgHh.jpg htt...

Re: Spyderco Puukko 2018

Beautiful knives!!! I agree; the reason Puukko may not sell well isn't the steel choice so much as the style. I'm a recent convert to scandi blades and loving it. I need to start saving for a malanika knife. I contacted him and orders are a long way out and $$$$$$$$. Appears to be worth it though. T...
