Re: 2002 forum knife question

Thanks for the responses. It has the cavity just no metalic spydie. I got burned a few times when collecting... Me too. I usually just fold up the loss and go on. It really sucks though. Not a huge deal, I bought it years ago and never noticed. I''ve been selling off the collection in a different a...

2002 forum knife question

I have a 2002 Vesuvius Forum knife. Most photos, but not all, that I've seen show a silver bug inlay on the handle. Mine does not have an inlay. I've skimmed through the multitude of threads about the Vesuvius, and I believe there was a Vesuvius version without a silver bug inlay. But I can not figu...

Re: Spyderco Official Discussion Facebook page is up

No there is no reason for a Forum user to jump ship from here, especially if they don't currently use Facebook. It is a good move on Spyderco's part to have an official page over there. The largest of the spyderco fan pages over there is run by egotistical ninnies who are creating a caustic environm...

Re: Home brewing?

Hard Cider, Mead and other fermented beverages are easier than beer, but require pretty much the same gear to produce. I literally just finished bottling a batch of mead. Unlike beer, preparing mead doesn't make your house smell like something died. It is also perfect for lazy people...the longer y...

Re: Civilian vs slash resistant shirt

As for being prepared, well geez I cut my friend in a demonstration, least I could do is do the same to some attacker. :D So YOU cut him? :eek: :D I would have a hard time putting much force behind a cut in a situation like that. I imagine you didn't cut too hard either. And it STILL got him. Yikes...

Re: Red loctite

Yeah, I've been watching in the group the OP is talking about. Being oldschool, I have never felt the need to take my knife apart. Some of them seem fanatical about buying knife, take it apart to "clean it" then reassemble. However, when you put screws on something you have to expect people will tak...

Re: Civilian vs slash resistant shirt

Is the aggressive edge and shape of the Civilian enough to scare off any potential attacker, or, if you carry it and pull it out to fend them off, should you be prepared for some such attacker to possibly call your bluff, and you be prepared to use it? The others already covered many of the good po...

Re: Civilian vs slash resistant shirt

Hmm, shallow superficial incision/lac 40% of circumference of forearm, suggests it was not too brisk or he would likely have cut deeply into the extensor group. How could he not be aware of the cut, and disengage? Maybe channeling Ahnold: The blade was so sharp no one knew he was cut for a few seco...

Civilian vs slash resistant shirt

Slash resistant shirt seen here. For the action jump to about 2:50 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WRPy06ppL-4 There was a fellow standing by me demonstrating one of these products, he was wearing one and slashing his chest with a knife to no effect. I offered my pocket carry for the day which happe...

Re: Buying or Selling: Which is more fun?

Doc, my old spyderholic friend. The easy answer is buying, but I'd say it really depends on why you are selling. For example selling for survival is not fun at all, selling to ease the burden of material goods, especially when you see the delight on the next generations Spyderholics when they score ...

Re: Scale Materials-Your thoughts Sal?

Your sample has a micarta look to it. If it is stronger than G10, costs the same or less than G10, and looks like Micarta (G10 is a bit boring), that would be a cool handle material! To be fair, zen, G-10 is only boring because of the way Spyderco uses it 95% of the time, namely flat slabs with a p...

Re: So what does everyone think of...

This new "scratch", pattern is interesting. I hope maybe Sal or someone from the Spyder crew can chip in and tell us more about how they do it. It says in the MD description that it's etched so I'm guessing it's a ticn coating covered with a stencil that's had some type of acid treatment? It must b...

Forgetting about your feelings on Massdrop (I've only just discovered it.) and that you find the knife ugly, I am curious on what makes it "too tactical"?

Re: impala

But those IMPALA models are really getting rare. Mainly because I don't believe they were ever a big seller even when they were on the main line up. >>Like the VAGABOND, TOAD & SPOT models>> none of them were very popular during their time in the catalog but collector's seem to drool over them now....
