Re: What other cutting tools would you like to see spyderco make?

I wish they'd look into a more traditional styled multitool with a one hand opening Spyderco blade. If I could somehow have a Spyderco blade on a Victorinox Spirit I'd be all over it. Something like the Leatherman Free T2 or T4 might work too. I'd like to see an FRN handled filet knife in LC200N.

Re: Have any of you noticed a change in Seki FRN?

My Pacific Salt 2 feels a little "rougher" than my other Seki FRN knives. Part of that might be because I haven't carried the Pacific yet. Even FRN tends to soften and smooth a bit with carry, so that might be one reason why.

Re: Pac salt green frn lc200n shipping to dealers!

You know, I was thinking the tip looked a little bulkier compared to the Endura, but I didn't have any way to make a comparison. Interesting that there's such a difference.

Re: Ark--new steel in the future?

I don't have this model, but have been looking at it. While I'd love LC200N, I can't help but wonder how it would do as a wharnie. That's what I was thinking as well. I can only imagine it would be even more effective in its current role with a wharncliffe blade shape. I figured this was a case whe...

Re: New guided knife sharpener from Worksharp = KME/Lansky competition?

Oh wow, this is the first I'm hearing of this new system. I like it. I also like the fact it doesn't cost an arm and a leg. The only thing I wish is that they offered more grit options. I don't really go for mirror edges anymore, but it's nice to have the option if I ever wanted to.

Re: Pac salt green frn lc200n shipping to dealers!

You should look inside the spyderhole. The lower part of the ricasso almost has a sintered look, like it was cast. If the blade was stamped out, these look just like marking lines from the die/tool. Probably the same thing on the proud sections of the jimping. https://i.imgur.com/i9CD9Qbh.jpg Here'...

Re: Pac salt green frn lc200n shipping to dealers!

Just got mine a few minutes ago. Right off the bat, I needed to snug up the screws, especially the lockbar screw. The lower part of the ricasso almost has a sintered look, like it was cast. https://i.imgur.com/54YxQujh.jpg The jimping is the same way, and it's not as clean as that found on the Delic...

Re: Pac salt green frn lc200n shipping to dealers!

I've got one on the way, and it should be here by today. I ended up going with serrated, mainly because the stuff I cut at work tends to be covered in mud or dirt, and it doesn't necessarily have to be neatly sliced. I look forward to seeing how well FFG SE LC200N holds an edge compared to FFG SE VG...

Re: Is H1 work hardening a myth?

I've used and sharpened my Wharncliffe Salt 2(serrated) quite a bit and I can't say that I've seen any evidence of work hardening. If anything, I feel like I'm starting to see reduced edge retention, and more deformation in use. I was under the impression that the amount of friction produced during ...

I actually had the loose pivot problem on the DLT Cruwear Delica. I'm not sure how long I carried it like that, but thankfully it never fell out.

Re: Spyderco Siren Observations

I got a screaming deal on a Siren from a buddy of mine, and it gave me the opportunity to try it out without paying full price. I'm kinda glad I did, because ultimately I found the design just isn't for me. It's a very nicely made knife, but I seem to keep hitting that dang lockbar. I was also surpr...

Re: Rock Jumper comparison thread + general info

Just saw this...that's awesome. Looking forward to it...each time I think "Spyderco can't improve on this..." and then Spyderco improves on it. The Rock Jumper feels great in the hand and is smooth as butter. I'm looking forward to the Salts. And I would guess that maybe we won't have to wait as lo...

Re: Weird Streaks on PM2 S110V

Probably scratches picked up during the manufacturing process.

Or, it's possible you wiped the blades down with a rag that was contaminated with material that caused the scratches.

Re: Vivi's M4 Manix XL DLC Corrosion Log

Your experience echos mine, though it's mainly my work environment that causes my knives to rust, rather than my own sweat. I rarely see any rust on the blades, but the liners will rust and need to be cleaned every few weeks. Sure, I rinse with fresh water, but rarely am I able to get the knives com...
