Re: What Spyderco is in your pocket today??

:) Man, I am almost bummed that the SE Endura doesn't come in varied colours like the PE model does. Looking forward to it though ! What's the ziptie for ? I am not "PeaceInOurTime", but the ziptie-mod works just like an Emerson wave opener.. try it, you will be surprised how well actually (sometim...

Re: Native 5 LW - nice surprise

I recently ordered a Native 5 LW from Knife Center, and it came today. It was listed as the S30V version, but I ended up getting the S35VN :) This was the original steel, right? And then they changed it to S30 at some point? I guess maybe I got one of the older ones? ..... You certainly got one of ...

Re: Changing size comfort zone...

The Military is the ultimate carry for me. It carries slim and is extremely lightweight for the size of knife. I got into 3" and smaller blades for a while but I found myself not really using or carrying them as much as larger folders. I just don't find them as useful, they are still taking up pock...

Re: 16th century "Delica" - and YOUR traditional knifes?

Here in Portugal we also have traditional pocket knives with wooden handles, but these ones are very characteristic of our "soul" as country :D .. Yep, they have a tiny fork :D I think I´d really like the "soul of your country"... ;) I´ve just made it to Spain several times, but never a bit further...

Re: Native chief vs Endura?

Chief without question. The Endura has an awful handle, the opposite of neutral. Same with the Delica and Endela. They are the right design, with the wrong handle. The bad part is, they refuse to fix it, haha. The dislike by some of the Endura 4 handle is one of the big knife mysteries to me: I (L ...

Re: 16th century "Delica" - and YOUR traditional knifes?

In my original post of this thread I described a traditional Austrian knife that reminds me in size and somewhat shape of the Delica (the "Taschenfeitel", see: https://forum.spyderco.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=82372#p1293139 ) - the "16th century Delica", since it is produced in the very same form and ...

Re: Native chief vs Endura?

trick question. the correct answer is pacific salt se. :) In small/midsized knives like Native, Para 3 and so on for me a choil is a bit of a drawback if one wants a universal all purpose knife , cause here the choil both sacrifices edge length and first and foremost handle length to a degree where...

Re: Native 5 Liners/Washers?

How do y'all feel about it? Do the linerless G-10 models feel good the way they are or do you feel they lack something? If both the previous linered and the current linerless G10 Natives do have bronce washers, I don't see why they should feel differently in that regard: In both cases on the "insid...

Re: Changing size comfort zone...

I am a much in the "a big knife can do everything a small knife can, but a small knife can´t do everything a big knife can" - camp. For me the Endura has the optimal, "regular" size for a folder, while your "mid sized knives" (Delica, Para 3, Native) for me really are small (as small as I would go a...
