Re: Bombshell Flash Batch

I think there will be plenty to go around at MAP $280. Didn't the Lil Nilakka take a while to sell out? I grabbed one with an ebay 20% coupon last year. Not sure how I feel about the Bombshell. It's short and stout (or chubby depending on your point of view). It looks like it will be thick in the p...

Re: TKJ Spyderco exclusive cruwear ????

Cruwear DLC with Forest Green G10

It's a bit aggro for my taste, but I'm sure it will sell out quickly.

Re: KC Exclusive Shaman Rosewood REX 45

The scales are solid rosewood, they're not laminated. :spyder: We will see if it is solid rosewood which is very restricted to import and trade, requiring CITES documentation and other types of permits or the same old Pakawood with dyed laminated mystery wood, labeled "Rosewood" due to its color.

It visually looks the same. What was the point?

I was expecting something more noticeable like the reground Nirvana.
It has a very detailed custom HT and is stronger and more stable now.
This is an honest question... What is that statement based on? Was testing done before and after?

Re: BladeHQ M4 Jade Dodo

I've never understood the blade / handle ratio obsessed. It is bench racing. Folks more worried about how it looks on paper then how it performs at the track. Agreed. I also don't understand ad nauseum harping on the "golden ratio" (no more than 1oz of weight per inch of blade), and lack of a sharp...

Re: Lil' Native Bushing Pivot CQI?

Same here, the comp lock action has been perfect on mine. I can't imagine how it could be any better. I've beaten the heck out of it and it just keeps going.

I'd love to have a lightweight Lil Native comp lock.

Re: Para 3 fades into the sunset.....

I jumped on the para 3 sprint bandwagon in 2017 and 2018. Now I am still stuck with 5 of them. Already sold a bunch. Since I got my Police 4 LW the para 3 is seeing no pockettime at all. it’s way to small for my taste now. I have more use for larger knives. Interesting how that can shift in a short...

Re: Knifejoy Exclusive Para Military 2

The comments on their Instagram page from angry customers is pretty intense. I don’t understand why people react this way. I don’t think I ever will.

I agree. Sure it was a cluster, but it's just a knife. I've missed out plenty of times but I don't grab my pitchfork over it.
