Re: Spyderco Retro?

I think I'd like to see a reissue of the Worker, and also the Adventura. Native 3 FRN would be great too.

Re: BladeHQ M4 Jade Dodo

Ergos? I've read some accounts of the great ergos of the Dodo allowing for a full 4 finger grip. I'm wondering what size hands it's best suited for. With those grooves I can't imagine that it fits any hand size. So for those of you who have one or have handled one - comfortable for your hand and wh...

Re: Compression Lock Military 2 Steel Poll

I have to be honest. I'm not sure I'd be interested in a compression lock Military. I like the Military exactly as it is, quirks and all. But if it were in a tantalizing steel... I guess I'd have to get one anyway... 20CV has been pretty good for me so far in a knife I have from another maker. I thi...

Re: Spyderco BM Proper Killer!

Something like the Roadie but larger, with micarta scales, and thinner blade stock would be totally aces. I'm thinking around Jr. Stockman sized?

Re: Bottom of pocket/clipless carry ?

I think the P3LW, Delica, Chaparral, DF2 all carry really well at the bottom of the pocket. I also carry the PM2 and Para3 clipless, but usually back pocket. The Manbug Salt and Dragonfly are my favorite- I often have to double-check that I'm carrying them. With the backlocks you have to be a little...

Re: Is it time for the PM2 to come with tip up carry from the factory?

I think that the PM2 carries great tip-down. The Para 3 would also, but for some reason on my copy the pocket clip changes the pivot tension.

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 ...

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 ...
