Re: Police 4 LW

I believe the LW is 3.9oz or 4.1oz, so about a half ounce weight reduction.

Went to a few shops trying to buy one in person but they didn't have them in yet. Grabbed a Bow River instead :cool:

Re: Manix v Manix XL v PM2

Manix XL is the best of the three.

Re: oH tHe TiP iS ToO FrAGilE

:rolleyes: Those slightly reinforced tips are plenty pointy enough. What do you actually do with a tip that thin? Not much. How many slivers do you get? I modded the tip on my Dyad Jr. I like slicey, but the Endela slices just fine at its thickness. On the other hand, I really dislike the low grind...

Re: Province edge angle

I put a thin convex edge on my Scrapyard Dofather, and it chops much better now.

It's fun chopping with a knife sharp enough to shave with.

Re: oH tHe TiP iS ToO FrAGilE

I miss the old pointy tips. I get sick of regrinding them to a thinner profile. If you never pry with your knives there's very little to worry about.

Re: How low do you go?

Double stuffs are a little undersized for serious reprofiling. If you owned one I could see trying it out, but it's not something I'd buy specifically for the job. It's meant more as a field sharpener.

Thanks for the nice words everyone. I feel very honored to have Spyderco produce this design! It is indeed a linerless knife and was designed to have the rustproof qualities of other lockback Salt knives.
It looks well designed Lance. Excited to give it a try.

Re: Knives I wish I had bought two of

C95. Never thought it'd get cut so soon. The 2 XL is nice but the original was nice in a different way.

Re: Spyderco 2019 Reveal Volume 3 Per Knife Center

I do have to admit the siren looks sweet. very functional and a good steel. why i wont get one is because of the lock and blade size. if they make a siren 2 with a better lock (anything not backlock) and a 3" blade, i would own one and it would be absolutely incredible. just one salt that is not a ...

Re: Police 4 LW

Siren could be another 3 or 4 months out. Police should be available any day. I don't think the Police is any shorter in the pocket compared to the Military, but I don't have a Military handy to compare to. I still think IWB at 3-4 o clock is perfect for situations where a clipped folder feels too b...

Re: Knife opened in my pocket.

Sorry this happened to you. I had a Millie open up in my pocket too. Glad you noticed it before it had a chance to cut you! I do have to point out the irony. Seems 2019 is the year of knives opening in pockets. For years I've talked about how I don't trust detent locks, and have endured a lot of "us...

Looks good. I'll have to handle it to make sure the grip fits my hands, but I like the look of it! Another pic with stats from Spyderco. https://i.imgur.com/tT1NZJl.jpg Looks like the grip is about 4" or so. Might work, might not, but I think it will. I'm just a slight bit concerned my pinky might ...

Re: Suggestion on how to greatly improve the Manix 2

Naw, I love jimping. The more the merrier! I wish the Lil Native had jimping. Jimping on the blade is cool, but on a handle made from G10 is just silly and a hot spot. Agreed. It's even sillier on the vastly superior Manix XL. The grip area is essentially U shaped. Don't need any jimping to make th...

Re: Police 4 LW

Is the Police considered to be part of the "Endura Family"? So Sal has mentioned that there will be a K390 version. He also said that Spyderco will be getting some K390 in October. So I am guessing the Seki run this year will be K390 (P4 LW included). After that, who knows. Get that VG10 version to...
