Re: Native Chief Lightweight

Hard pass on that one. Will pay more for a round handle or something special done with it. But not interested in frcp. I'd much prefer to go up in materials than down. I own and Spyderco makes enough frn/frcp knives to last 5 lifetimes. Valid opinion of course, but for me FRN / FRCP IS a step UP in...

Re: Pocket clip (wood-) screws just in wood?

If there are any hobby shops in your area that caters to RC aircraft or boat modelers, consider using machine screws and blind nuts like these: https://www.dubro.com/collections/fasteners/products/blind-nuts Thanks to all of you (can´t quote everone here) for your help!!

Re: Endela Pakkawood HAP40

Pakkawood configuration would require a mild redesign to accommodate full steel liners, yes? It has only been released in LW version and have not even seen different FRN colors yet. Not saying it won’t happen but I don’t see it anytime soon. Would be a sweet config though! I’m just ready for one th...

Re: Native Chief Lightweight

I think there is a lot of interest out there for a Native Chief LW, since this has been asked for several times already (among others by me). As always, I guess before Spyderco considers producing expensive FRN molds, the Chief has to proof itself as a hit and well selling model. Furthermore, other ...

Re: Pocket clip (wood-) screws just in wood?

You're saying you think if you pull the scales off there aren't holes in the liners for the clip? That sounds impossible. Wood that thin isn't going to hold that clip very well. I would drill and tap the liners to make this tip up. Or just leave it as is. It is a pretty piece. Thanks! No, I haven´t...

Pocket clip (wood-) screws just in wood?

Have been trying to sell my Zirikote-wood-scale Millie for quite some time now, but just can´t find a buyer. So I figured, I´ll start to carry it myself again, and "mod" it a bit more to my preferences One thing I don´t like about the Millie, is the tip down carry. Now I am thinking about mounting t...

I got one, and I like it, but I think my usage will really take off when they are released in a steel I haven't really had the chance to try yet, like Hap 40 or K390.
PE or SE? If PE, get an SE too... :D

Re: POLL: ENDELA: Who has already bought / will / will maybe / will not get one?

It's rather vanilla for me...I probably will get one at some point, but I have other items I'm interested in before I grab one. I'd say if you like PM2 sized folders but also backlocks, you would not regret getting one.. For the money (and not only for the money...) you get a great workhorse of a k...

Re: Manix v Manix XL v PM2

Owning all 3 and in consideration of what you have shared and how the Endura keeps finding it’s way into your pocket I will give you one recommendation from the 3 you have written about and one you have not. Get the Manix XL in DLC if you can it is the correct size for a Manix in my opinion the reg...

I worry more about loss.
I "only" lost two so far fortunately (a blue handled Endura and a Stretch 1), but it happens... and hurts.

Re: S30v Endura request

I'd get one for sure! The Endura is a perfect design for me and my hands, S30V is great and for a non-master-sharpener like I am absolutely still "super steel" enough. On the other hand I have to say: The Endura combo of one in VG10 (which I think is just a dream to sharpen on the basic sharpmaker) ...

I think saying a pocket knife’s tip is too fine is like saying the sky’s too blue. ;) :p Really depends on the scenario one uses it in: See my post above!

Re: Rusty Waterway - Your Thoughts

I personally don't need total rustproof steel, so: Yes!! :) Can't remember, but isn't Rex 45 virtually the same as HAP40? If so, I'd take that (though I am one of those who really like the cladding Spydercos HAP 40 comes in, and REX 45 probably not). Anyway I think, tool steel makes more sense in fi...

Re: POLL: ENDELA: Who has already bought / will / will maybe / will not get one?

I'll probably buy one soon in SE. If it were offered in combo edge I would already have one. Be aware that on the SE Endela the section of plain edge towards the tip is rather long compared to other SE knives: 1.6 cm, I guess that's about 0.63 inches of plain edge before the serrations begin. So, s...
