Re: Ikuchi

Do we know that the Ikuchi showing up have these new CQI changes?

Re: Sal, how about a Chaparral with 2.5mm blade thickness?

Is the lock on my Chaparral LW harder to operate than my Delica - yes. Is it so hard that I feel the need to make the blade thicker - NO. Yes I would like it if it was easier to operate my Chaparral LW's lock, but not at the expense of losing the thin blade. And to further clarify - this is coming f...

Re: Turkey

The main reason to have Turkey on Thanksgiving is to cook the Stuffing!!! inside it. While I eat a few slices of turkey, it's the Stuffing I overdose on.

Re: How Spyderco came out on top

The Delica

Big enough for most day to day knife needs. Small enough for easy carry & legal blade length laws. Low enough price-wise where owners are not afraid to use them. Material quality enough to meet the owners needs.

Hi JD,

We're working on something.

A new Spyderco story book, even a re-release, would make my Christmas list.

Re: Any CTS-XHP knives comming up

One of my favorites steels that Spyderco offers. Ones I have are:

Manix LW
Rhino
Chaparral LW

Currently have the Chaparral LW in my pocket. Wife & I visited an apple orchard today and I wanted a knife that would be great for slicing apples.

Re: Spyderco x Vanquest Envoy-13 Messenger Bag

I carry a Timbuk2 messenger bag daily to work. Has various health information/electronic medical record manuals, pens, sharpie, pencil, paper, EDC gadgets, and my lunch in it. Have to admit I really like the Spyderco one. The outer water bottle pockets are nice. Mine has an interior one, but bottles...

Re: Stuff you made

I've finished the handles on a few Opinel Ebauche. Found out that Olivewood can be fairly toxic when sanding & it aerosolizes. I broke out in a poison oak like rash. Was ok to handle otherwise, but ended up giving it to a good friend as a gift. Made another in Walnut for myself. WalnutEbauche.jpg Ol...

Re: Opinion of new Toyota Yaris

No experience with the Toyota Yaris, but I bought my oldest son a used 2007 Toyota Matrix(basically a Corolla) with 110k miles on it. He drove it for 2 years of High School and he's now 4 hours away in college. Currently it has 140k + miles on it. Only major thing we have done to it is replace a fau...

Re: Anything that can replace Chaparral?

My current office carry is a Chaparral LW. I hardly notice it in my pocket due to the weight, and it doesn't stand out to people in the office. Prior to the Chaparral LW I was carrying a Spyderco Rhino. Not much heavier, but the standard shiny pocket clip made it stand out more. I also like the stee...

Re: No More Curvise Writing In Schools??

I grew up left-handed going to Catholic school. I was the type of left-hander that wrote with my hand bent. If I had a written paper to turn in it required putting another piece of paper under it so I did not smudge it. I actually had to learn to write right-handed in one grammar class as the old Po...

Re: Back lock Lock rock

My old SE ZDP-189 Delica has a bit of up/down lock-rock. Of course it's opened countless boxes, cut heavy duty plastic packing strips, and was once used to saw excess material off a wet-to-dry cast before it fully hardened. My FFG Delica has a very tiny bit of up/down lock-rock, but it's newer & has...

Re: RIP Pete Gerber

One of the 1st nicer knives I bought was a Gerber Mk 1 dagger. Still have one of the old Loveless Daggers buried in my stuff. Carried a Gerber Gator for a bit in the Army.

Rest in Peace.

Re: We are saved! Baseball Season is here!

Normally go to the gym after work on Weds. Get off at 5pm head over thinking I'll watch some of the game while I run on the treadmill. Look up at the TV as I go in and see a score of 10-0 Cardinals in the 1st inning..... Decided to watch Forged In Fire on the treadmill instead and occasionally look ...

Re: Are you carrying knives with an index choil?

As much as I prefer Spyderco knives without choils, I've been carrying a Chaparral LW since I got it a while back. My usual EDC is a Rhino, but the Chaparral LW has been a good work EDC due to the light weight and deep carry wireclip.

Gosh gang, I'm hoping my Bravos can do well tonight. Those Red Birds are always tough! I started watching the game while at the gum after work. I left it was 3-1 Braves. Get home and I check in to see it is 3-2 Braves. Got busy doing stuff, check back in and it is 5-7 bottom of the 9th! I was like ...
