Re: Which Spyderco for prying with tip?

Know that when you are prying with the tip of your knife you are taking a risk. The risk of a snapped tip, the risk of slipping and cutting yourself. I'm on FB group for Spydercos and the #1 most common snapped tip there isn't a particular model, it's a steel. That steel is S110V. Which makes sense ...

Re: Note to self - only let the GF carry stainless knives...

Lighter fluid (it's the napatha) is my go-to. Instantly dissolves any adhesive.

Re: Newbie with knife steel question...

S30V will still rust but not nearly as rust-prone as D2. If you sweat like me in the summer and subject your knives all day to that you might start to see some light rust spots but I would normally not worry about it. The DLC-coated blades will be more rust-resistant than the uncoated blades, at lea...

Re: Sal, any plans for a fully serrated Police LW?

I already have a P4 G-10 but I'd be extremely interested in a P4 LW SE. It'd be a great backup folder as I normally carry and use something a little smaller.

Also I'd be interested in a P4LW in Super Blue, cladded or otherwise.

Re: SE performance is more than simply teeth vs no teeth.

David, this is amazing. Thank you for sharing! Like you I've found more and more that SpyderEdge can in fact, be an AFI edge. It started, for me, with an adventure into a Tenacious SE as a beater knife and discovering that there wasn't anything I couldn't (or wouldn't) do with it. That turned into r...

Re: Have you found the one?

To be honest, my carry rotates all the time. I've spent a lot of time single-carrying the PM/PM2, Manix, Para 3, Delica, Chaparral, Dragonfly, Manbug, and even the Military. They're all great and I rarely feel underprepared carrying any of them. My carry often changes with the season as I enjoy carr...

A knife, or any tool for that matter, is so much better once you move in and make it your own. Nice work!

Re: My STRIDERCO just came in and I'm in love !

I like the Brouwer too. It reminds me so much of the Strider PT that I actually sold the Strider. It really excels with a Lynch clip too if deep pocket carry is your thing.

Re: Which Steel In you’re experience is your favorite for Spydie Edges?

I have honestly only tried VG10, 8Cr, and H1 out of this list.

However, so far I've been really happy with SE in BD1-N as in the new Para 3 LW.

I find that cardboard completely eats H1 edges, even SE H1. VG-10 doesn't hold up great against cardboard either but like H1, the SE helps.

Re: POLL: ENDELA: Who has already bought / will / will maybe / will not get one?

I got one, and I like it, but I think my usage will really take off when they are released in a steel I haven't really had the chance to try yet, like Hap 40 or K390. PE or SE? If PE, get an SE too... :D PE, but I keep wishing I picked it up in SE. I've seen some nice pictures of the Endela with a ...

I have a Bow River in the mail. I'm having a heck of a time getting one. The first order I put in was backordered and the dealer never let me know so I waited and waited for the mail to come in. The second order I put in with a different dealer is now mysteriously delayed at the post office and hasn...

Re: Upcoming Tenacious Lightweight

The catalog says the tenacious LW isn't even 10% lighter... so I'm left wondering... what's the point of this knife? As said by Ez566, the cost of FRN scales is substantially lower than G-10 at scale because it takes longer to mill G-10 scales than mold FRN scales, once the molds for FRN have been ...

Re: POLL: ENDELA: Who has already bought / will / will maybe / will not get one?

I bought an Endela and agree it is the perfect in-betweener but I really want to try one in K390 or maybe even in G-10.

Just putting it out there: I have the first Kapara and it’s flawless also.

What a great knife. I hope we see more collabs from Alistair Philips. I’d love a smaller one too.

Re: Efficiency of edge types

If your aim is a neat and clean separation a well sharpened plain edge is the way to go. If you simply need something separated quickly and efficiently, serrated is a great choice. I’ve been EDCing the SE Para 3LW since it came out and I’ve very rarely wished I had a PE in my pocket.

Re: Byrd neck knife? ”Byrd Swick”?

Thanks for the reply Sal. Truth be told I almost never carry a knife around my neck anymore. It's hard to conceal and hard to reach and I don't like the way it swings around if it's over a shirt. If I carry a fixed blade it's going to be on my belt. I just like the term "neck knife" over "belt knife...

Byrd neck knife? ”Byrd Swick”?

I was just carrying my Swick and Spot lately and I thought how great it would be if they were more affordable and more available.

The Swick is probably my favorite neck knife for utility ever and I think a Byrd version in 8Cr or 440C would be top notch.
