Wow I think that would be just looking for trouble. I would want a very hard half stop with that one if it ever came out. Could you elaborate on this? I don't think I understand what you mean. I thought it might be safer than a slippie with a normal tip since the hawkbill shape encourages the user ...

Slipjoint Hawkbill anyone?

Did a quick search and didn't see anything about this. What does everyone think about a(n) Urban/ UKPK with a hawkbill blade?

Sorry if this has been done before.

That's the problem with having impulse control. ;) When you want something for a long time, anticipation builds it up in your mind until reality just can't compete. Your mind convinces itself that the world will be a better place, the air will be cleaner and the sun will be brighter, you'll be more...

I got my girlfriend an SE Delica Wave which she keeps on her daily. It only has 2 purposes, SD and cutting flowers.

Ever want a knife for a long time and end up not liking it?

That's how I feel about my CF BG42 Millie. I've been wanting one for over a year and a half now. I've played with them in stores numerous times and each time I wanted one more after playing with them. I just recently snagged one and for the life of me, I just can't get myself to like it very much. I...

It doesn't matter too much for me either way except for knives with weak detents. I wouldn't want a Para tip up.

Personally I think it's just too small to do any good for me. I just have such large hands that it's almost impossible for me to get good use out of a regular ladybug without a lanyard and making very sure that I don't slip off the small hole and slice my finger open. I personally want to stay away...

I have the 14 and I love it. The chisel grind is fine with me and keeps things different with my rotation, though I prefer the normal V-grind edge generally. The G-10 is grippier than Spydies in general. I recently held a 12 and was pretty disappointed. The cut out on the frame lock seemed paper thi...

I hate to say it but i think you made a good choice for it`s a lot harder right now to get a ZDP Caly then a para for which like you say it`s still in production which the Caly ZDP is not :cool: Yep, I highly doubt they'll ever get rid of the Para in one form or another, but who knows when or if th...

I very recently sold my Para, mostly because I just bought a Hinderer XM-18 and the price started to freak me out. I was already down to my last 2 Spydies and it came down to the ZDP Caly 3 and the Para. I figure the Para would be easier to find when I eventually buy another one (and I absolutely wi...

Over the years I've read quite a lot of different books and programs that would fall under the category of "self improvement/personal growth, etc".

It's going to be between the CF Millies, the Para and the ZDP Caly 3. But with Spyderco constantly coming out with new stuff, I'm just not sure it if I can continue to commit too much emotion to any one model anymore :D .

I went with yellow when I got my Pac Salt. But over time, I had wished I went with black. The next salt I'm going to get (Tasman, SE) will be in black.

RIOT, I moved out several years ago. It's really not as bad as it sounds, my ego got me in a lot of trouble. I didn't move out because of the crime either. People didn't mess with me much when I stopped acting stupid. What a coincidence. Once I got my mind wrapped around the idea that I was willing...

I was kinda surprised that the Delica has more fans over the Caly 3, but now that I think about it, it is a classic. I've played with both and own the CF/ZDP Caly 3. I vote for either Caly 3 over the G-10 Delica. The G-10 Delica is VERY nice though.
