Re: What is your Last Spydie of the year before price hikes in 2020?

The C95 I picked up will be my last Spyderco of the year.

Scored another Leatherman PST2 off ebay that's in the mail.

Re: ZDP-189 - Overrated or Super Steel?

I did not have corrosion issues with ZDP and I found it to sharpen much easier than other stainless steels with similar levels of edge holding. I can't recall a steel I've sharpened that's produced such minimal burring.

Re: Which FRN pattern do you prefer?

Volcano. Grippy while never feeling abrasive. Feels fine IWB, while bi-directional can be a bit irritant carried that way.

Re: Finer CBN/diamond rods for the sharpmaker?

If they offered a diamond or cbn rod that was between the current ones and the mediums, I'd buy it. That'd be a great finishing grit for those who like coarser edges. Wouldn't mind seeing a diamind bench stone from Spyderco either. If I understand Cliff Stamp correctly, can’t you just make fewer pa...

Re: Any interest in more Phil Wilson collaboration?

If Taiwan can pull off the Ronin 2 for $100, how would you feel about a Phil Wilson design built with similar materials?

Re: Community Sharpening Journal

I can't think of a sharpening job that benefits from heavy pressure.

Re: Finer CBN/diamond rods for the sharpmaker?

I think we need a coarser stone myself. The diamonds aren't bad, but something that could really hog off metal would be welcome. I wouldn't be against finer ones either, but I think refining the diamond finish a little with the brown rods works well. I think they're coarse enough, but being limited...

Re: Community Sharpening Journal

A while back I got a bit upset with Work Sharp over their new Angle Set knife sharpener because there were reviews placed on Amazon 2 full months before it's actual release. To be clear I do own many Worksharp products some better than others but none of them truly bad like so many other gimmicks o...

Re: Any interest in more Phil Wilson collaboration?

So, Phil Wilson really knows how to desing a knife with great ergos. Bow River looks like a big hit, partially I guess for the price. So, do you think that another collab sometime in the future has a potential? Something like this? https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQXzHfFABwgSMa...

Re: Flashlights

Could is not is however. ;) Fact is the LED's have outpaced the batteries in the new lights. They keep coming out with newer LED's that drain the batteries even faster. Yes, they are brighter, but with a 1 to 2 hour run time in MOST of them on high.... The PROTAC HL 5-X USB/PROTAC HL 5-X with the 1...

Re: Countdown to Reveal 1 2020

Honestly, I don't know what to expect from Reveal 1 2020. Partially I think that is a good thing, it creates a bit of tension and more people are excited when we don't have any idea what we could get. Maybe we see some Shaman sprint run, it was hinted from Sal. Pacific Salt 2 - not likely, because ...

Nice Leatherman!

The loc-tite broke on my C95 when I tried it out today, so I re-applied a thicker coat. While I let that cure, I'm carrying my P4.

Re: Big Spydie fever

If you have any desire to carry a folder in its size range, I can think of no reason not to purchase the Police 4 LW. It's the best Spyderco folder to date in my opinion. I planned on buying the Chief, but after handling one I decided to stick with the Police series. I really like the overall desig...

Re: Police 4 Lightweight Observations

Sal, I want to praise the folks at Seki-City for the edge they put on my Police LW. It is the first PE Spyderco I can remember purchasing that I haven't felt the need to reprofile. I'm not sure what angle it was ground at, but it came ground thinner than my Police 4 G10 and Police 3. I've been sharp...
