Re: Pac Salt 2 - disassembly??

A big benefit of coated blades, seldom known, is that they're much more comfortable to use in direct sunlight, as there is no glare. It seems like a small thing, but this is one reason why I try to grab coated models these days. Even after the coating wears off, the steel underneath isn't as bright...

Re: Caly 3.5 Light Weight: Any News?

I hope this goes well. I'll think about it, but a 3" Caly LW would excite me more. If you can do without a lock, the UKPK is basically just a slip joint Calypso. I have looked at those! It's on the list. Just picked up a Dragonfly, and the Chapparal and UKPK are next on my "little knife" list. It h...

Re: Spyderco Face Mask (now bandana, hat and patch)

"Muzzle" or not :rolleyes:, I'd be down for a mask with a big ol' Spyder on the front. Failing that, a ballcap would be a likely buy from me. My only request is not to use velcro on the adjustment band, and to make it rather lightweight, for the warmer months.

Re: What is this model please?

I guess that size bracket is a little crowded in Spyderco's lineup. It's a shame, I'm particularly fond of the lines of that model.

Re: Purchase limits on Sprints/Exlusives

I think this is the only solution. Telling dealers they have to buy more would cause far too many issues. I think we need to go on the offensive against flippers. We should taking turns "buying" their knives but not paying for them. It would require dummy eBay accounts, though... Seems more like th...

Re: Suggestion for changing Spyderco budget knife steel 8Cr13Mov

I know that there's a grade of D2 found in China that is frequently found in some of the higher end manufacturers based there. I know Rat knives uses it, and their knives still fall within the price range of the Byrd knives.

Re: Rare 1990 BLACK SEAL.

Awesome! It's crazy it took the alcohol to bring it out like that. I had one of those in plain edge, but I don't think it was a Navy Seal model.

Re: Watu...AKA Lil Chokwe

I've been more interested in FRN scaled models lately, but I have to admit this thread has brought the Watu to the top of my attention span. I love the handle and blade shape, and really like the fact it's basically the same size as the Delica. It's interesting to me that the Watu design looks like ...

Same here.

Though, a Tenifer coated blade might be interesting. But, that's as far as my interest goes.

Re: Spyderco ads and articles through the years

Thanks for all the articles and ads you've posted so far. Some of them really take me back.

There are some great designs now, but I definitely miss some of their older knives.

Re: Spyderco ads and articles through the years

Stuart, There's a particular article I've been trying to track down for a while now, maybe you have it. I believe it was an issue of Tactical Knives, and it was a write-up on some of Spyderco's smaller offerings, specifically the Calypso, Dragonfly, and I believe the Co-Pilot. If I remember correctl...

The FFG LC200N Salt 2 is going to be the linerless Delica 5.
I'd be down for that, especially if it comes with a serrated edge.
