Re: What’s your best made Spydie?

I am generally not into the ultra-highend , very expensive Spydercos.

That being said: I am happy with all Spydercos I got so far. Out of the ones I own right now my Chap and believe it or not the Tenacious S35VN have the most perfect fit and finish.
The Kapara I had was amazing too in that regard.

Re: Para 3 for large hands?

p ... Spyderco actually has figured out perfectly how to design a SMALL folder handle, so it fits all handsizes: Look at Sage, Native, Chap and so on: On all of these models the lower part of the handle, where the fingers sit, is longer than the upper part plus has no hook but a flat section toward...

Re: Rockjumper new blade shape?

Chosen? I have not seen any evidence of production. Besides, you never know when a new model variation might be considered down the line. Possibilities. Don't have the time right now to search extensively but this is back from January, Sal confirms a Leaf Jumper is in the works https://forum.spyder...

Re: Rockjumper new blade shape?

Added to my post above: (For me) sadly Sal has also said, that the Leaf Jumper will NOT have a longer blade than the RockJumper. This (a longer blade) was what I´d have hoped for in the Leaf Jumper, since there is space in the handle left for that and the goal of the handle forward design literally ...

Re: Rockjumper new blade shape?

Sal has already confirmed that there will be a Leaf Jumper soon; should be close to production I think

So I guess this question is decided already... ;)

Re: Para 3 for large hands?

It amazes me with so many different opinions. Some people with really large hands find the para 3 comfortable. Others say even the para 2 might not be comfortable with large hands. I really wish there was a place that sold all of them so I could try before I buy. I don´t think that this is weird, b...

Re: Para 3 for large hands?

As a sort of tangential observation, I find the choked-up grip using the choil on the Para 3 to be very, very comfortable, and totally makes the knife work. This was certainly true for me too when I could try the Para 3! So if one likes to always hold their knives choked up anyway, the Para 3 is a ...

Re: Para 3 for large hands?

... I guess if one really always wants to use the choil (which is fine!) the Para 3 must be a comfy, very locked-in-the-hand feeling knife! I still (and this is just an respectful question!) don't really understand why they did not go the Endura/Delica way with PM2/Para 3 and gave the smaller model...

Re: Outdoor Spyderco - what would you pick?

Kapara is a very cool knife, but has a pretty thin handle that makes me unsure about it. True. Thin is not the main issue (for outdoor use!!) though: More so that the gorgeous and high quality CF handle is rather slippery. And the comp. lock is not the best suited for outdoor use imho, especially t...

I think the Siren is a beautiful design. It checks so many boxes for me. I just wish it was in FRN. In terms of the lock bar mine clicks slightly but that's it.

This.
And in SE.

Re: Para 3 for large hands?

I probably should have specified that I always use the choil, but that’s my preference on any knife - I prefer my hand close to the cutting edge for the best control.

Re: Para 3 for large hands?

Added to my post above: If you can legally carry it, I see no reason why the PM2 should be too big for EDC - for me it is rather on the smaller end, and the longer blade has only pros and no cons imho. You could also look into Manix, Stretch, Endela and Rockjumper in that size range. If you wanr a r...

Re: Para 3 for large hands?

L to XL hands, tried the Para 3 and the grip srea is too short behind the choil so I'd always have to choke up. This is a bit annoying, since the handle actually would be long enough, but the "hook" at the handle end shortens the grip area. This "hook" works well on PM2 and Milie, but not so on the ...

Re: What Spyderco is in your pocket today??

It's really all I hoped for in its role as ultralight hiking knife. Just perfect. Light as a feather, but thin bladestock and serrations combined make it a mean cutter... I guess in an emergency this thing could even rip through wire, something a plain edge just can't really... https://i.postimg.cc/...

Re: Outdoor Spyderco - what would you pick?

Looking at the Siren there is one thing that makes me want it less - and that is the rather large distance between the hand and cutting edge . I mean - the knife was designed for water sports and fishing, there it makes a lot of sense as the handle gives extra security. I am just not sure it is opt...
