Re: Largest Spyderco you're comfortable with?

When I'm not working I regularly carry a Military in M4. Dope knife for sure.

I don't think I would go larger than a Military though.

Re: What did you use your Spyderco for last?

Used my red UKPK to cut my turkey sub in half.

All Black CPM-M4 Military anyone?

Been wanting one for a long time so I made one. What a great knife. They are both CQI models and man are the small improvements awesome. Looks like they also radiused the outer edges of the handles a tiny bit for comfort. I love the floating stop pins in these models. https://i.imgur.com/PdtbESn.jpg

Re: Would you buy a Golden, CO USA EARTH Made Tenacious Lightweight?

NC, oh yes.. my Milli is just a bit TOO long when closed, but the Chief has just Endura-length, which is great. And, yes, a backlock... way better for me than a linerlock.. What do you guys not like about a linerlock? Do you think you are going to disengage the lock accidentally during use? I reall...

Re: Would you buy a Golden, CO USA EARTH Made Tenacious Lightweight?

Me too, but just in PE... There are only two knives that I like that have the liner lock: Military and Cat. I do not like the lock, I just put up with it. The Cat is small enough it is not going to get used hard. The Military is, the Military, and everyone needs one. Now I will be buying the P4 and...

Re: Would you buy a Golden, CO USA EARTH Made Tenacious Lightweight?

No. Unnecessary. It would then defeat the purpose of being made in China and the price would get close to that of a Para 3 lightweight. Plus I find it ugly (the Tenacious).

Re: FRN Grittiness

I don't think you're doing anything wrong. I would see what happens if you get a longer knife. Also, no need to take it apart. Either just flush the pivot with some hot water, or some oil (if you want, it's not needed for an FRN Salt with no liners). Salt's are resilient as heck and don't need anyth...

Re: Poll for Folding MULE - UKPK

No. It totally defeats the purpose of the Mule. Simple, inexpensive (no scales or sheath), and sturdy. A folder would be none of those. For the purpose of testing steel there is nothing better than a fixed blade. What you want is a Sprint of a UKPK. If Spyderco said the mule program was done and an...

Re: Para 3 lightweight

I've participated in, and have read all of this thread, as far as I can tell, and have seen no mention of the printing on this blade yet. Has anyone else here noticed that it's different? Has Spyderco mentioned this publicly, somewhere, and I have just missed it? I get at least 2 Spyderco knives a ...

Re: Gone too Soon - Manix Backlock Deserves a 2nd Chance!

The Manix is too big and bulky for me no matter what you do to it. On top of that, the newer backlock version was just too thick. Thin it down and round the edges like a Para 3 and make the blade less tall and get rid of the jimping all over the handle.

Re: CTS-BD1N Where does it fit in?

My non-scientific experience so far (from UKPK) is that it’s a lot like LC200n. It doesnt hold the edge as long as others but sharpens pretty easily. Seems to get a fine edge without much trouble. I’m guessing you will like it. Thank you for this report. This is exactly the kind of subjective infor...

Love mine. More refined than the original. Perfect folder, no lock necessary.

Thanks Sal/Eric for making this bad boy. -=thumbsup=-

Re: Who's for replacing ZDP-189 with HAP40 laminate in regular production?

Has something changed?

If I remember correctly, ZDP holds an edge longer than HAP40. It is also more corrosion resistant. ZDP is a heck of a good steel; much more so than most folks think. HAP40 can take a backseat.

Could someone share a picture of a Chap next to a native5 for size comparison?

Thanks.


If you Google "Chaparral Native 5" and then click "Images" there are tons of pics.

Re: The Chaparral is a large knife

Great thread Michael.

Here's my similar combo. :) I love the Pemberton.

The clip on the Chap, is from a Lil' Native. I like the shorter clip better on a small knife.

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

Can't wait. One of the best knives ever produced by Spyderco. Love the UKPK. I like how they put their logo on the tang instead of huge and across the side of the blade. Very tasteful. Couldn't agree more. A++ I must applaud Heinnie Haynes not only for listening to the requests of their UK customers...
