Re: Throwback Thursday for Spyderco's

Thank you to all for the memories of design perfection. Sal has taken us for quite a ride! Hey, does anyone have a pic of the Military knife with the inlay(Forum knife), missed out on that one!
Best regards, scout

Re: Mr. Wayne Goddard passes

Mr.Goddard inspired me to dabble in knife making. His articles and book were so giving in knowledge for us newbies. Prayers sent to all friends and family.

Re: C15 yes

I don't know why a sprint hasn't been developed yet. With the technology improvements in the last twenty years, the knife would really be a pure revisiting of where we are and where we've been.

C15 yes

What do you all think about a sprint run on the C15? This seems to me to be a no-brainer with the popularity of the 940 Osbourne.

Re: Wegner love. What do you use yours for most?

Mine has about 95% lock up. I could push it over to the other scale, but no blade play. The later versions had a radiused lock. I would love to see a lightweight version with standoffs and a more modern steel.

Wegner love. What do you use yours for most?

I'm good on my Wenger collection, but there are some on the bay if anyone is looking. It is one of my favorite designs and I use mine for Navy shipboard related chores. With the strong tip and high hollow grind it can assume many roles! Oh, and I flame oxidized the clip on the stove.

Re: Good knife to carry in a bra?

I run with my Tasman IWB. A running specific knife would be very interesting. We could call it the "Sprint"! :D :D :D

A two bladed knife would be very good. I always carried two knives on me. Manila, nylon and polypro line all respond differently to different steels and grind configurations. As knife steels have progressed over the years, I find myself carrying more plain edged cutlery. A serrated blade is used mos...

I have a question for all you salts out there. Does anyone use their marlinspike for what it was intended for? (Splicing rope) Yes! I would use it more often for loosening salty old knots, opening paint cans and opening shackles. When I first joined the Navy, the older guys all carried Buck 110's. ...

For me, the clip to hole distance is perfect. I think that moving it is a mistake. I would much prefer adding an addition set of holes for those who are deep carry guys. I don't think I've ever seen that done before.

I propose a challenge for you. Put all of your Spydercosa line.... close your eyes and open them all with the thumb hole without flicking them open. I did this and the Spyderco Stretch by far was the most comfortable & easy thanks to the oversized thumb hole and the ratio the hole is to the pivot. ...

So, I bought the Stretch as an excuse to join the discussion. :) It is a very quick knife. The clip to pivot to hole ratio is pretty dead on. I tend to prefer knives with less of a hump and the Stretch takes up a lot of pocket space. I would like to see something like a Chinook lite, but without the...

I have colored clips using a stove top to heat them up. I kind of ended up with a blueish/brown color.

Great idea. Maybe a higher grind or thinner edge. Hmmmmm. How about a re-release of the original Terzuola Sr. and Terzuola Jr. with titanium scales (replacing the original aluminum) and M4 blades.

For a while, I made knives from files and blued them like one would blue a gun. Does this steel take to blueing at all? I could do the blueing in many steps to get the patina that I desired and found that a greyish finish was quite pleasing to the eye. Coat the blade with the blueing solution and a ...
