Re: City Animals

I live in Mesa AZ. I’m not in a rural area but there are many open fields like the one directly across the street from me. We used to have a problem with a lot of stray cats around the apartment complex I live in but, there seems to be a pack of coyotes living in the field across the street. You can...

Re: Spyderco Value Knives

I Have a Cara Cara 2 but I need to Locktight the pivot because it keeps loosening and the clip screws won’t all tighten up. I have to say the ergonomics are even better with out the clip. It’s my go to when there is a potential for damage. Own a Bow River also. It’s a beautiful well made knife. Hone...

Re: Sage 5 Lightweight

I’m kinda surprised that Spyderco didn’t go with CTS-BD1N like in the Para Lightweight, to keep the cost down. This iteration is only about $30 less than the standard Sage 5. I would have picked one up if the price was closer to that of the Para 3 Lightweight. Maybe they did not want TOO much chall...

Re: Spyderco Value Knives

I’m wondering the same thing.

I’ve been tempted many a time by the Spyderco Resilience but I have just never pulled the trigger on one. I really enjoy large folders.

Does anyone know if there is a quality difference between Spyderco’s 8Cr13MoV and Byrd’s?

Hey bloke... very cool Spyderco pendant in your picture.
Where did you get it?
Hi BLUE, Spyderco had them custom made for us a couple of years ago now. From memory they were made as ID pendants for one of the Blade Shows that year. :)
Very jealous!

Re: The Waterway Will Be Mine...

My Waterway arrived yesterday and I can see what all the excitement is about. It feels great in hand in any grip, it’s hair popping sharp which is a bit of a bonus having heard others came not so sharp and has a very even and symmetrical bevel grind. Fair to say the total package is actually better...

Re: Which steels did you carry today?

For the better portion of about 10 days I’ve been carrying LC200N the Native Salt PE and the Caribbean Leaf PE at work. The Native Salt and the S30V yellow & green zome Delica accompanied me on a hike this weekend though.

Re: Please Help Me Buy a Flashlight!

I think the mag-light xl50 is excellent. I’ve had the same one for years and it’s never let me down; it uses 3 AAA batteries has three modes high, low and flash.

Re: Caribbean Scales: Love, or Hate?

As far as the Caribbean scales go, I really did not like them at first but they grew on me. I like them more now because they make the Caribbean unique from any other knife I own. Black scales get boring. The Caribbean as a whole is a phenomenal knife. I think you would be hard-pressed to find anyth...

Re: Caribbean Scales: Love, or Hate?

wasn’t this a discussion about handle scales? why does the backlock brigade feel the need to remind us all that they are terrified of detents in every thread about knives with a compression lock? almost every salt folder besides this one is a backlock. some of us happen to like the compression lock...

Re: Your Thoughts of an Ideal Companion Blade?

I don't intentionally carry a second knife on my body unless you count my multitool but I do have a 5.11 bag that goes everywhere with me and it always has a Dragonfly Salt hawkbill in it. I've forgot my main EDC knife a few times and that knife saved the day. I used to carry something SE in my bag...

Re: What Spyderco is in your pocket today??

I’m very glad for you that you got your knife back. I unfortunately know the feeling. I lost my pacific salt PE (1st Spyderco) and a freshly tuned up and sharpened Benchmade 530 was stolen within six days of each other. That was a bad week. :( Thank you! And sorry for your loss. Bad week indeed. Ca...

I wonder if the blades will be interchangeable with older models. That would be mint.
The regular Para 3 blade was interchangeable with the lightweight version as far as I know. However they are different knives.

Another upvote here for the PM2 lightweight. Wire clip, S110V with UKPK-blue FRN, please!
^Exactly!^
I think that is the same blue that’s on the Manix 2 S110V Lightweight.
