Re: First Glimpse at my Swayback

Shipping was free. (And the Sequel are pure horrors. Killing the Star Wars myth. How people with full open budget and all the time in the world have been able to create such non sense moronic flicks... This is a shame... They kill my childhood dreams... Anyway Gary Kurtz was the real architect and M...

Re: First Glimpse at my Swayback

Very nice review and pictures Nemo! Got me thinking if what first Ti Spydie should I get, the Chef or this one. Chef is more available though at this time. Thank you !!! :-) The Chef is more versatile: wide blade easy on the board, and no maintenance. You can dive in the sea with it. The Swayback i...

Re: First Glimpse at my Swayback

Really not a fan of that standard clip on this design, it looks like an afterthought. I like the knife itself though https://nemoknivesreview.files.wordpress.com/2020/08/20200814_102914.jpg?w=1024 https://nemoknivesreview.files.wordpress.com/2020/08/20200814_104545.jpg?w=800 That is better, I think...

Re: First Glimpse at my Swayback

Man, this Swayback thing did not go the way I was hoping.The size and the stamped steel clip say Working Knife, but those lines are all about a gent’s folder. This is precisely the huge charm of the Swayback design: an iron hand in a velvet glove. It is a wolf dressed as a sheep. The kind of knife ...

Re: First Glimpse at my Swayback

Nice acid work !!

The Swayback is one of the most sharp Spyderco's factory edge I have ever got. I even don't remember my Nilakka being that sharp.
Yesterday I was cutting deep in the board of that Pizza. ;-)

Re: First Glimpse at my Swayback

Thank you Carrot :-) I have updated the review with many new photos including my bottle butt test. The Swayback is a little tricky to open but since I bave decided to open it à la Michael Janich (with the ring finger) it is tricky no more. Also opening is slowly coming a 100% fire ration. I need rea...

Re: First Glimpse at my Swayback

Thank you ! :-)

The only thing which I wanted is a titanium clip because of the titanium handle and I got some spare to try on it.
Now my main issue is the opening and I have found a way: the ringfinger opening:

First Glimpse at my Swayback

Hello there, here is my little review: https://nemoknivesreview.com/2020/08/14/this-is-the-swayback-spyderco-c249tip-first-glipse-at-a-sebenza-grand-child/ Since my writing I have been able to use it for lunch in the kitchen. It is just amazing how thin the edge is. I have found an easy way to open ...

My first glimpse at the Siren !

Today I have received Surfingringo's Siren. Here are my little thoughts about it with pictures: https://nemoknivesreview.com/2020/06/25/the-working-seahorse-spyderco-siren-c247g/ I love when knives are made as EDC tools. It is not always the case. This one is made a forgiving workhorse. An everyday ...

Re: Para 3 Review. A great Youtuber with real visual and storytelling.

Great video review! I love seeing people actually use their knives in everyday situations rather than ramble for 20 minutes over a tabletop. Thanks for sharing Nemo! :cool: Refreshing, thx for posting :spyder: You are welcome ! I have watched his other videos. He is very good at drone's shots too. ...

We must be watching different videos. I didn't see him do anything other than fidget with it and cut open a couple bales of hay. His editing is unremarkable.
Thank you for sharing your good vibes.

Re: Para 3 Review. A great Youtuber with real visual and storytelling.

His videos are okay I guess. Pretty typical Youtube fare...too many jump cuts and lots of really bad music. Wranglerstar's Para 3 review is much more substantial IMO... Jump cuts ? There is a good pace in his editing and his videos are rich in various set and beautiful sequences. I even wonder how ...

Re: Para 3 Review. A great Youtuber with real visual and storytelling.

The videos are so well made. I'm planning to see all his video collection during that confinement times. ;) Laughing is important. And those video are fresh ! I love subjective reviews. To each their own. Spyderco is not famous in Norway where the local knife culture is very important. All my friend...

Para 3 Review. A great Youtuber with real visual and storytelling.

Hello Spyderfan ! Farmer E is a Norwegian which got a real knack in English, filming, editing and story telling.

Hey Nemo, Are you planning any trips to the States? We'll be at the Blade show in Atlanta in June. I miss our chats. Gail and I aren't making many trips overseas these days. Age creeps in. Our longest trips these days are to Kauai. sal Hey Sal, Sylvie wants to make a trip to Colorado for quite a lo...

Re: Can some steels be bad for our health ?

It's an interesting discussion and does bring awareness to the folly of California Prop 65. I personally do not think there is risk except for those professions mentioned and dry grinding. Our new steel was based on Cobalt and 27 is the number for Cobalt in the Periodic table. If we thought there w...
