Re: Reveal 7 Live!

No doubt the brand new Regular Production Para 2 Cru-Carta is the biggest news Spyderco has pulled out in the last 5 years :D No offense, but Spyderco has released dozens of interesting new designs in the last 5 years. To me, something like releasing the Native Chief after decades of development ma...

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

Military - 9 votes vs. Para 3 - 0 votes. THIS is a GREAT forum! :) I won't argue with that! :D Maybe it’s because I’m new here but I don’t understand why the para 3 gets so much hate. Can someone explain? Is it because it’s had a lot of sprints in the past? The Para 3 is not my most favorite Spyder...

Re: Cruwear Micarta PM2 Full liners

I'm sure that's true, but I definitely had the same question. I have 3 different aftermarket micarta pm2 sets from 3 different makers, and none of them feels even remotely flimsy with the nested liners in place. That being said, Spyderco obviously knows more than I do, and I trust that if they've m...

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

Definitely the Millie. I really hope they can figure out a way to make this happen. I´d love a Micarta Millie, and I am sure they can make it happen - but as others have said, after listening to what Eric said about the Micarta PM2, I am sure the Millie would have to get full liners. Not necessarel...

Re: Caribbean for EDC - Plain or Serrated?

Welcome to the forum! :) For me SE, no doubt. I did not expect that at all, but since I experienced my Endela in SE, from a practical point of view I would like to have 90% of my Spydies in serrated edge, as long as the blade is ffg and the serrations are ground not too aggressive (like in the Endel...

Is that dried duck breast ? Looks delicious.
The Meat Man got it, it’s biltong. Dried, cured beef (in this instance).

A word I totally had to look up in the dictionary... ;) / Looks tasty, perfect to bring for lunch outdoors in the mountains!

Re: Looking for model #

Thanks Sal.. I hope someone here can steer me in the right direction. I bought the knife at a yard sale from a man who was a collector. I’m not sure if it was a civilian by name but it has a reverse S and smooth stainless. I traded it to a knife vender in approx 2002 for $250 trade value and he que...

Re: SpyOpera, Brouwer, ...

Watu.. .though for my uses it falls into the gentlemen's knife category since the blade is so thin and the tip looks fragile . After the initial hype, I only rarely carry it, and only for formal or business ocassions. Brouwer might be a good bet also for daily EDC uses. You should give the Chap a c...

Re: SpyOpera, Brouwer, ...

.... Chaparral ist definitely a very cool little knife, kinda like the raffir version, but I would expect that in regular use the handle will get scratches. But then there is the carbon fiber one . Super thin slicey blade, that is real nice and CTS XHP is a great steel too. Actually the only reason...

Re: Endela-thread

Just picked up a K390 version from my local dealer. I was pleasantly surprised at how this knife feels in hand. My first Spyderco lockback was the CF Chaparral followed by the FRN Chaparral. I do like that knife, but it turned me off to lockbacks (very stiff). I typically prefer the Compression Loc...

Re: Cruwear Micarta PM2 Full liners

I don't think there's any way it can be lighter or as light as the linerless G10 version. I'm thinking the spec is wrong, unless there's something I'm not realizing. Is there a linerless G10 version of the PM2?! I don´t think so - ? That would be kind of hard to do since one of the liners is the lo...

Re: Help me decide - Endela or stretch k390?

Stretch for me. The handle shape fits me perfectly, and I’ve always liked the shallow choil over the ricasso of the Endura family. Straight spine and sharp tip seals the deal. Do you feel that the current Stretch 2 still has a shallow choil? The Stretch 1 did, but for me that changed with the "2" (...
