Re: Hollow Grinds

After a week of fiddling around with my Roadie I think it would be a great candidate for a hollow grind.

Re: Combat Aircraft

I'm a big fan of WW2 aviation. Spitfires & Hurricanes dogfighting ME-109s during the Battle of Britain. The F4U Corsairs & Mitsubishi Zeros made famous by the TV show Baa Baa Blacksheep. The Mosquito from the Dambusters movie. The Ju 87 Stuka flown by Hans-Ulrich Rudel. The unique P-38 Lightning. An...

Father's Day Spydercos

Anyone get a new Spyderco as a Father's Day gift? I'd planned on maybe getting a ParaMilitary 3 in SPY27, but decided to get a Spyderco I've been curious about for a while: The Roadie. A lot of times at home I just grab my Pingo or another slipjoint to cut stuff. So I ordered a Roadie in Grey today ...

Re: Smokey Mountain knife Works.

Went there a lot in my 20s. Took my boys there when they were little. We'd rented a cabin and my wife dropped us off while she went to get groceries. She got stuck in traffic on the way back and was worried we'd be bored lol.

Re: First time you saw a Sypderco?

I was visiting High School friends back in California around 1987 or '88. Went into a Pipe/Tobacco store in Carmel that had a knife display. Saw something other than the usual Buck 110s and Puma lockbacks. It had a stainless handle, pocketclip, and a serrated hawkbill blade with an opening hole. Bou...

Re: What is Mini Bugout Equivalent for Spyderco?

I have the Bugout (not the mini) & the closest comparable Spyderco is my Chaparral in FRN. I like the Axis-lock & larger handle, and love the pocketclip of the Bugout. S30V steel is not my favorite, but it's acceptable. I find the blade heavy balance kind of feels off in my hand - enough so I am loo...

Re: Y’all like rare knives? First run Paramilitary, circa 2004.

I had one exactly like that, though not as nice. Got it used off ebay for $50 because the owner didn't know how to sharpen serrations. Used it as my yard knife for a few years, but the ergos of the original ParaMilitary were not good for me so I sold it.

Re: LeafStorm Sprint anyone?

I remember when these came out. Knives by Mr. Wilkins were very popular. I was looking forward to it, then I handled one and lost all interest. It was a cool knife, but the ergonomics were all wrong for my hand. Hrm... how so? I haven't handled one, and I have rather big hands, what didn't work for...

Re: Spydie vs Bugout

I've got one, but find myself carrying the Chaparral LW more when I want a light knife. Not that I don't like the Bugout, I just prefer the Chaparral XL to it for a couple of reasons: Blade/Steel - I prefer CTS-XHP over S30V. I also love the thin blade of the Chaparral. Balance - The Bugout's weight...

Re: What will you be getting from the new reveal?

Swick 5 tops my list on this reveal. SpyOpera, depending on how it feels in-hand, could be very nice. Really curious about the new Spy27 steel. Not sure if I want to try it in the Native, the Para 3 LW, or see what other models come out. I love my Delicas, but don't see the M390 version doing much m...

Re: Difference in the wave?

Never paid attention to it - still learning new stuff. Just pulled out my Matriarch 2 - same wave as yours. First waved Spyderco I ever handled was the Delica. Playing around with it I noticed it did not catch as well as my actual Emersons. Decided to pass on it. Just got the Matriarch 2 because of ...

Re: Office chair got me

One suggestion, if you're going to carry tip up, get the version of the clip used on the all stainless Delica and Endura that does not have the lanyard/pivot screw hole in it. Since the lanyard hole on your knife is in a different location, that hole is only necessary if you want to carry tip down....
