Re: Who has the S35VN Tenacious LW? Does it get overlooked and if,WHY?!

I'm delighted you're so happy, Wartstein. Did you buy it at Cuchillería Gómez online ? The Tenacious will not be part of my collection, I'm afraid. It has a blade that is too wide (for my taste). With the same edge length, the blade shape of the Endura is much more "graceful" for my taste. That sha...

Re: Long Blade Folder Guys ... what you cutting?????

... or at least a linerlock. I´d buy both a linerlock Shaman (if choilless, even better) and linerlock Caribbean in a heartbeat (sure a backlock would be even better) Agreed. It would work well with a liner lock, they're good for keeping the edge close to the handle. If they can make the ergonomics...

Re: Who has the S35VN Tenacious LW? Does it get overlooked and if,WHY?!

..... Maybe you should take the plunge and buy one and write a review for us? Having spoken so eloquently about the Tenacious, I think you should buy one anyway, Wartstein... My friends, for you I´d bring any sacrifice, and so I did how you told me and bought one... :p Detailed first impressions wi...

Re: Pound for pound the highest performing Spyderco is...

To be clear: Never had any version of the Ladybug! But I could imagine that perhaps the new Salt SE 2 in LC outperforms it pound for pound?? Three times the weight (so still really light), yes, but same thin bladestock but in ffg, a full handle and a much longer cutting edge should make it a much be...

Re: Serrated edge fans

Am I seeing that h1 works better job with serrations than vg-10? I never thought when I bought my first knife as an adult, my spyderco ambitious, I’d fall down this rabbit hole. H1 SE will hold an edge longer than VG10 or LC200N SE, but the latter two have very good edge retention already (SE is be...

Re: Retire The PM2?

Comp locks and thin blade stock are a no-go in these modern spydie times right? 2.5 mm seems to be no problem (Ikuchi...), 3mm certainly not (Kapara, Sage...) The Shaman is cool with its thick blade stock, but that thickness really is not necessary even for "hard work" imho. I did all kinds of rath...

Re: Long Blade Folder Guys ... what you cutting?????

... I'm right with you - edge length to handle ratio on the Caribbean is amazing. I personally prefer backlock to comp lock, and the pocket carry of the chief is way better than the Caribbean for me, nice and slim. A choil-less Chief would be my "final answer" dream knife. Sal has said he has a des...

Re: Endela (-sized "middle ground" knife) in the "Pac Salt family"?!

This thread made me break out several knives and I think an easy solution is to use the Atlantic Salt handle but with a blade change. The Atlantic salt's handle is actually of comparable size to the Endela, the Stretch 2, and the Rockjumper. Of course those that are anti-choil may not like it but t...

Re: Knives that cut like the Native Chief in upcoming sprint runs?

I did see an Endura 4 in HAP 40 on knife center. How does the handle feel on the Endura 4 and Police? My main complaint about the Chief was when I really beared down on the knife, I would actuate the back lock. It wasn't good when the blade was stuck in something. The HAP 40 Endura for me is probab...

Re: Sage 5 LW in More Colors??

Sure! For me the Sage 5 LW should become the new, main small comp. lock model - in any regard (color, steel...). It's just almost perfectly designed for what it is imho (2.5 instead of 3 mm blade stock would be nice).

Re: Knives that cut like the Native Chief in upcoming sprint runs?

Well, I lost my Spyderco Native Chief in REX 45 ... I guess you´re not from Europe? The REX 45 Chief is still in stock over here - but for the usual European prices, that might be hard to swallow for US people... ;) The price in the first link is actually not too bad though (keep in mind: These are...

... If Spyderco were to re-market the LC200N Salt 2 & Pacific Salt as ultralight backpacking knives, what do you guys think they should do different? New descriptions? A new color to go with the new marketing? An exclusive combo edge run to be sold at outdoors chains like REI or Cabelas? I've felt ...

Thanks, W! Yeah, we've been doing full spin throwing, but I'm open to other techniques. Perhaps just get a set of three spikes and try... they really cost almost nothing and are probably actually the best (safest) entry for kids who want to get into throwing [Edit: YOUR kids of course, not you... :...

This knife is so great for what it is... so I´d like to come back to why I started this thread originally: It would be almost a shame if mountaineers, ultra light hikers and the like missed out on this perfect model, just cause it is too much associated with "Salt" and "maritime enviroment"...

Re: Endela (-sized "middle ground" knife) in the "Pac Salt family"?!

I think it would be cool! Since re-engineering and redesign is required, why not ask for that 2.5 mm blade stock? An a tad longer blade AND that in 2.5mm stock in an Endela Salt? Ok, THIS model (make it SE) could come very close to the most perfect EDC folder ever for me... Actually, when there wer...

Re: Knives that cut like the Native Chief in upcoming sprint runs?

And, even further from a "special sprint steel" knife, but still: The Tenacious LW in S35VN should be an amazing cutter with its tall, rather thin blade. And when it comes to cutting edge: Not too much less than the Chief (Tenacious edge: 3.39" / 86 mm, Chief 3.6 / 91 mm) Overall it is of course a m...

Re: Knives that cut like the Native Chief in upcoming sprint runs?

Not a sprint steel, but I can´t imagine that an Endura in K390 cuts any worse than the Chief. Even a tad thinner blade stock.
