Re: What Spyderco is in your pocket today??

Dragonfly today. I took the plunge and ordered the h1 version, my first salt knife. Hope it is as cool as they say...I may get a native salt sooner or later if I like it...

Lil native

So, having two and carrying one on most days, I obviously like the Native5. But recently been looking at the lil native. I don't NEED a smaller knife, the native is about the right size, but it might be nice to have some variety and a smaller knife can always be useful especially in more, shall I sa...

Are you aware that they make a left-handed version of the Milli?
Yeh but wanted to use the standard.

Re: point durability on Military?

Good to know it's probably good for my use then! To be fair I think I've only ever bent one knife point and that was as a stupid teenager and cheapo knife. Regarding the 20 years thing I had no idea this knife had been out for that long! BTW I'm lefty and carry the right hand model in my left pocket...

point durability on Military?

Looking at my military, I am noticing the tip is REALLY thin. Now from the side it is still plenty wide but the spine is so skinny I'm wondering... should I be worried about damaging it? I mean in normal use. Not prying or anything, just cutting and poking. Don't know why I never noticed it before b...

Despite being lefty I like this one. It's just a bit big for everyday for me.
Excels at slicing veggies tho!

Re: Spyderco Okapi?

Dug mine out. I think it may be a knockoff as the point was practically blunt, but I did manage to sharpen the edge up ok in the past if I remember. Here it is next to the Spyderco military... I think the design is neat aesthetically but the build quality (if mine is real) is pretty lackluster... ht...

Re: Spyderco Okapi?

I have one (or a knockoff, not sure, got it used). Did not come very sharp but sharpened up ok and it is an interesting design. I think a spyderco version would be kind of neat.

Re: Warehouse knife

The native 5 is pretty awesome. A half plain half serrated might be just right for warehouse work. I use mine in a similar capacity sometimes. Makes short work of those hard to cut straps around boxes. and the older models -- still available from many stores - are s35vn! The Warncliff on the delica ...

Re: Is there any way to purchase a Native 5 steel liner separately?

I used to swear by liners -- until the native5. Granted your handle material is different than the stock frn, but I must say I was so impressed by this little knife I immediately bought a second one in s35vn that was half serrated and haven't carried another knife for over two weeks... once an incon...

Re: A question for Sal

Fair enough Sal. I always admired that when we communicate with spyderco we get a response, not a form letter. I should never even have thought spyderco would... well, but... as the old saying goes... we live in interesting times.

Now for something really controversial...

Re: A question for Sal

Hi Lonerider, We handle ourselves in a manner that I believe you would appreciate and respect. sal Thanks. No offense meant, either, it's just these days... people are doing some odd things. If I didn't have respect for Spyderco I wouldn't carry one and recommend them to everyone! The 2nd amendment...

Re: A question for Sal

Thank you.

Like i said, I didn't mean to start politicking, I was just curious and a bit concerned.

I love my Spydercos and just wouldn't want that tarnished. Well, patina is ok. Tarnish... not so much...

Re: What is the most general use Spyderco blade steel in your opinion?

Vg 10 is good, s30 v seems to stay sharper a bit longer. I've also had 2 natives in s35vn which seems like a cross between the two in terms of edge retention. But I can still touch up the s35vn on the bottom of a coffee cup if I have to! I'd like to use tool steel but the only one I've seen that on ...

A question for Sal

Question for Sal: I recently learned that Benchmade had been directing the vast majority of its donations to politicians very much against the 2nd Amendment. I do not want to get political but i was just hoping that Spyderco has not been doing the same thing. I prefer the companies I support to be p...

I have a problem...

So... I have a problem. I just pick up the darned knife now and go out the door. No sitting there wondering which one, appreciating the pros and cons of each for each situation. I just stick the thing (Native5 s35vn half serrated half plain) into my pocket and go. It's not that I've lost interest in...
