Re: 2020 Spyderco Forum Calendar Contest!

NEED MINOR HELP? As in years past, if anybody needs help with formatting the resolution, aspect ratio and DPI to meet the requirements, I'm happy to help. I'll even help with minor things, such as if you took a picture that's awesome and only noticed later that there's a tiny piece of garbage or so...

Few more details from DLT Tradings Instagram account - https://i.imgur.com/qaQh52u.jpg July 17th - 11 am Central - 2 per household limit Too bad they're not telling production run quantities anymore. Spyderco, for the most part, stopped listing sprint run sizes a few years back. I don't get it. It'...

Re: Spyderco Junior: A great knife that deserves to be remade.

I like the Junior and always thought it would be a good Super Blue (solid, not laminated) sprint run candidate.

Re: What to do if someone tries to rob you with a knife?

If someone threatened me with a knife, I'd bore them to death by explaining the ins and outs of edge geometry, how the steel they chose isn't the best choice for stabbing humans (along with an in-depth explanation on how carbides, chemistry, and heat treat affect those properties), and then use the ...

Spyderco television commercials

I was looking at some archived spyderco.com pages on the Internet Archive wayback machine and ran across a page from 1999, where a page talks about three 30-second television spots that Spyderco did. Does anybody know of a way to see them? I couldn't find anything online. https://live.staticflickr.c...

Re: Squared/Rectangular Handle Scales: Do you like them or not?

I didn't think I'd like square handles. Then I got a Chokwe. :p Overall, I prefer generically rounded and contoured. And by "generic", I mean ones that aren't overly sculpted to lock in only one particular hand size and grip. As you mention, it can be overdone to the point where a handle doesn't acc...

Re: What drives me batty

For the most part I have so many knives that in some ways the thrill is gone. If it is meant to be then it will find it's way into the hoard. That's where I am. There are a lot of new designs that I like, but I'm finding it harder and harder to get me excited enough to spend the money, as I have so...

I just wanted to bump this because it's still annoying. After I initiate a search, I have to wait 30 seconds before I can navigate to subsequent pages of results. It will then let me click through a few pages, then makes me wait 30 seconds to look more. This is really annoying, especially when I'm t...

Re: G10 UKPK officially makes a return! Heinnie Haynes Exclusive

As of 10 minutes ago, 695 of 1200 sold already! Where did you get the 1200 piece run info? I didn't see any mention of the size of the production run on their website, Facebook page, or Instagram. I asked them over the ‘phone when paying for my pre-order. Great, thanks for sharing the info! :)

Re: Massdrop SG2 Delica shipped??!?

If somebody that gets one wouldn't mind sharing the second half of the letter that comes with it, I'd appreciate it. All the pictures on eBay show it folded over, ending right when it starts to talk about the steel used, so I'm curious what the Spyderco literature has to say about Super Gold.

Re: M4 Shaman Exclusive

Where is the number 600 coming from for the production run size? The first post I see mentioning 600 pieces says he saw it "somewhere on the internet," :rolleyes: and then I keep seeing that number repeated. Has this been verified by a reliable source?

Re: Caly 3.5 Damascus possible?

It would not be a Damasteel blade if it’s to be a true 3.5 inch version of the original. The original is VG-10-based Damascus. Do you know if it was truly layered or the kind of wrap around Damascus that Spyderco uses now?? I'm not exactly sure what you mean by "truly layered" vs. "wrap around," bu...
