Re: Elastic Ceramic

Cedric & Ada Gear and Outdoors just posted a video with a ceramic knife that lacks one of the big drawbacks of ceramic knives. It's elastic. Sounds quite interesting in my opinion. If this is the beginning of a new knife blade technology, then I find it revolutionary. Very interesting! The steel in...

I agree, a 52100 UKPK in contoured canvas micarta would be great. Make it a FFG drop point and it would be even better. For my purposes at least.

So what about a Micarta/52100 or Rex 45 UKPK or Urban?

What say you?
No new idea, there are several requesting threads during the past years but we never got a GO or at least WAIT A BIT from :spyder: -co. :(

I for my person still say YES!

Re: Any interest in ~1.0 mm blade thickness?

I voted "other" as a non-locking folder like UKPK or Urban would be my desire from Spyderco.In general I think a non-locking folder should have a thinner blade.

Re: Mule Team quantity discussion

Unfortunately the shipping costs from the SFO in USA to Europe make buying individual mules rather unattractive. So I think that this discussion should rather be held within the US and I will not participate in it. I sincerely hope that Spyderco will set up a branch in the EU in the foreseeable fut...

Re: Spyder Classics: The C-73 Spyderco IMPALA model

And we have no idea what variations of prototypes of Spyderco's models there are out there in collector's display cases. Or what exists as SHOT Show prototypes or any other prototype for that matter. That's the reason why I strongly think it's better to focus only on variants for the official ELU-m...

That’s really cool that there were CE and SE variants as well as the guthook/no guthook model variations.
The Impala never had a full serrated edge (SE) ... to the best of my knowledge. :)

For a long time in my life I worked for a well-known American company and the insight into the american way of life and culture wasn't really appealing to me, to tell the truth. I discovered Spyderco knives through a german-speaking forum and argued for a long time whether I should get involved in t...
