Re: Watu...AKA Lil Chokwe

Goes without saying that I am extremely excited about this one! Thanks, Spyderco, for continuing to refine and explore the possibilities for this traditional design, and for the effort involved in translating it into the realm of high-tech materials. It is also great to see continued, generous part...

Re: Watu...AKA Lil Chokwe

Glad they kept the wire pocketclip & compression-lock. Was hoping for CTS-XHP, but I'm just happy it's not S30V. Definitely on my want list.

Re: Got a favorite ax? Post ‘em up!

Gransfors Bruks Hatchet. Bought it for around $60, then they got popular & the prices almost doubled. Regardless, it's a great Hatchet & worth the money.

Deacon just made me feel old..

Has it really been 16 1/2 years since the Kiwi came out?

And I always love seeing your epic Kiwi collection.

Re: Long Live The Kiwi!

I sometimes regret gifting my original jigged bone Kiwi to a good friend. But it's among his favorite knives so I do enjoy knowing it's well loved.

Re: Forum knife 2020 - model poll

Of my 2 choices I selected the Para 3 LW and the UKPK. While a Shaman in some unique blade steel sounds great to some here, I think a UKPK Forum Knife would sell more. The Shaman would be $200+ easy. The UKPK would be less expensive and our members in countries with lock restrictions could get one. ...

Re: Liner Lock Failure??

I've had one liner-lock fail on me (not a Spyderco). I was sawing through some heavy duty cardboard & when the blade became wedged in I yanked up hard. I felt the blade pop loose & begin to fold so I ceased all movement. Luckily I did not get cut. Checking the knife out later I found I could replica...

Re: The Unofficial Spyderco MERRY CHRISTMAS Thread

Spent the morning opening presents at home & our usual breakfast of Christmas themed pancakes. Late afternoon we head 15 minutes down the road to my In-laws & spend the rest of the day with them & my Sister In-laws family. Open presents & stockings, then dinner. Afterwards head home & just relax. Cu...

The torch has been passed.

So today I carried my Chaparral LW to open any presents, cut tape, etc.

How many times did I use it? - Zero, None, Nada, Zilch.
Didn't even pull it out of my pocket.

Why?
My oldest was beating me to the punch with his Para 3 LW.

Re: Your Spyderco Christmas Eve And Christmas Day EDC

Today will be spent running some last minute errands, dinner at the In-laws, followed by Christmas mass, I'll be carrying my Rhino. With a Bug-out pocket clip it's low profile, but up to any task I might encounter. Tomorrow I will probably be carrying my Chaparral LW. Package opening & tape cutting ...

Re: First Opinel Experience

I picked up a standard Opinel #8 in carbon steel prior to an official Boy Scout trip where we were not allowed to carry fixed blades. I was skeptical it would hold up to my wood carving & camp kitchen needs, but it actually excelled. My only complaint was with the ergonomics of the handle. The upper...

I remember when the original Manix came out people over on Bladeforums were comparing it to the Sebenza in terms of fit & finish.

Re: The Spyderco Rescue Designer? History?

Only Rescue I have is the blue handled version like 5th one down in this pic. Carried it as a work knife at the hospital till I got a Gen 4 Delica. Always liked how the blade on this version looked.
