Re: Crunch-Time Hardware? Spyders For Trying Times?

For those pocket-free days...

I think I'm going to have to get one for my Dragonfly if this goes on long enough, though.

Re: Serration Disappointment

To OP, when I got my very first SpyderEdged knife, a SS Delica, I didn't get it either. I had the same issue with the chisel grind as you did. I tried it for a few things, decided it wasn't to my taste, and sold it. Ten years later, I decided to give it another shot, with the Tenacious in SE and som...

Re: What happened to the Native III moulds?

I had always thought that the Native 3 would be a great handle for a longer, 4-5" fixed blade.

Re: UK PK Love? future releases?

I much prefer the drop point UK PK design. I have so many leaf blades which function very well. The drop point shape is a breath of fresh air and also looks so good.

Re: Buy a blurple PM2 now, or wait for the 2020 releases?

Steels will come and go and so will models. Will your PM2 be less effective tomorrow compared to today? I wouldn't worry about it. I have a handful of S110V Spydercos and it's easily one of my top steels- keen, surprisingly easy to touch up, and zips through miles of cardboard. But I also have a lot...

Re: FFG and ZDP Endura in SS handle?

I would absolutely buy an SS Endura with FFG ZDP. But I think we'd be in the minority. Still, all the parts already exist, maybe it is a possibility to have a small run!

Re: How about a Lava light?

To be honest, I really liked all of Chad's designs when they came out. What was that, like 2014? I still like his designs.

I'd definitely buy a Lava Lightweight!

Re: Your iwb carry.

I have to carry IWB for legal reasons. If it's not IWB it's at the bottom of my pocket, where lint resides.

Where I live, a knife must be fully concealed, which is to say, even pocket-clipped is not considered concealed.

Re: Chaparral SE ?!

I too would like to see it in SE. Right now the Chaparral gets no pocket time because I'm focused on SE models.

CTS XHP is awesome. I don't need it to be a Salt. But I wouldn't say no to a LC200N model, either.

Re: Your iwb carry.

I often carry a FRN knife IWB because it's light and easy, but I actually prefer smooth handles for comfort and a lockback for safety. Very often then that's the Endura SS or CaraCara2 SS. The Pacific Salt (not the 2) has a nice texture for IWB carry and is nice and lightweight as well.

Re: Roadie point?

I saw a really cool proto by TRM that put the idea of an extreme clip point in my head. I tried it out in Pixelmator.

I think you could do it with patience and a regular grinding wheel? Maybe a dremel and a bench vise?

Re: Your favorite linered lockbacks?

Probably the discontinued Rookie. It's like a Delica on a diet.

The very modern Chaparrel is also an easy pick, just by virtue of the slim blade stock and the excellent lockup.

Re: Harrier FRN has some contouring.

I don't mind the blocky handles but D4/E4 style would certainly be better. As it stands I always take some sandpaper/files to all my Byrds when they come in to round out and smooth the handles. Makes a $20-30 knife feel like a $60 knife basically for free. The contouring is a nice touch on the Harri...

Re: Spyderwrench owners club

I wouldn't mind having one of these in my EDC bag. Maybe it would be feasible to do a run of these through a pre-order and funding system like Kickstarter? I'd put in money for two.

Re: Larger K390 Roadie

I’ve actually been carrying the Roadie despite my complaints for it being too thick a stock. It’s a great knife, snappy and refined. I enjoy the W&T better than any traditional I’ve owned and then some. I think if it were just elongated to 1.5x or 2x the length it would be pretty nice. It’s not gonn...

Re: Caly 3 love?

Caly3 was a long time carry for me too. I may still be carrying one if I hadn’t lost it! I think the larger Caly3.5 just doesn’t appeal to the same users. At the same time the 3.5 size is getting crowded. Today I think the Chaparral has scooped up most of the users who would have liked a Caly3. They...
