Amazing Reveal... So that would mean that in addition to the long-awaited Maxamet Millie, we're gonna see Millies in S45VN w/ a diamond arc G10 handle AND a lightweight Millie with Spy27 ??? BTW, the yin-yang Pacific Salt picture is simply stunning, my heartfelt congrats to whomever came up with the...

Re: 25K Post Contest

I'm in. Many thanks to you Paul for the info shared over the years but also for the witty undertone present in the vast majority of your posts.
This being a Millie, I think I'll go with number 036

Re: Folders for food prep?

I don't regularly use my folders for food prep, but as mentioned elsewhere giving them a couple of moments on the board is a quick and handy test to develop a first impression on ergonomics, potential hot spots, etc (That way I was able to learn that I really don't like using back locks on the cutti...

Re: Are there any serrated Snap-it Salt users out there ?

I use mine predominantly on hiking trips. Carrying method is via the left shoulder strap loop of my backpack, that way I can easily remove and open it with almost the same motion. It's light and compact, so not so much dangling on the loop as to become irritating. It's a Salt so it can remain expose...

Re: 30:th Anniversary Endura/Delica?

Voted Endura. I'd really love to see not some fancy new collectors-only edition, but a (re)take on the original: blade shape with pointy tip, plastic handle with an integral clip. (I've avoided on purpose "FRN" because it may be any other type of polymer as long as is rigid enough for structural int...

Re: Tell us about your Spyderco Knife of the Year 2019

QI-ed Ikuchi and QI-ed Kapara are shoulder to shoulder in my case but I have to give the "Spydie Knife of the Year 2019" award to the gorgeous Kapara. ^this. I do wish the tip was more acute but apart from that ergos are great and looks are stunning. Plus, it's only one of those few Spydies where I...

Re: How was your 2019?

In retrospective, seems I've managed to stick to my self-imposed policy of 'no more than needed'. In this case, 'needed' equals 6 knives, 3 of those being Spydercos (Native Chief, Ikuchi, Kapara). Also 2019 is the year when I've decided that Spyderco are a bit overdoing it with the 50/50 choil and t...

Re: Where is my CQI Ikuchi ?

I've had zero issues with my Ikuchi, it's a great carry and a fantastic user. Most likely I'll buy a CQI version as well, along with any other kind of sprint they'll make. Also looking forward to the rest of the series.

Re: Really Spyderco ... where are all those Ikuchi ?

Love mine, have been carrying it for quite a while now. Have had zero issues so far, opens each and every time as intended and the tip is just recessed enough that can't really bite regardless of circumstance. This is not to say I will not be getting another one when the tweaked batches become avail...

Re: Spyderco 2019 Reveal Volume Two Released!

really excited for the Chief and Police LW! Same here, the plan would be to get both (no surprise here, huh :) ). I also like a lot the z-cuts, they seem to share the same handle design as the Vic fruit & vegetables knives that I've been using for quite a while with great results, looking forward t...

Nah, it's more of an Ikuchi thing (much more than the usual Spyderco one).

Re: Hiking knife

i love the classic Spyderco shape of the Jumpmaster.Only thing holding me back are the serrations.I never had a serrated blade. Well, the Jumpmaster will make for an exquisite 'first serrated' knife. For the record, I used to have a bias against serrations as well until a while ago... not any more....

Re: Hiking knife

the problem with asking this question on a spyderco forum is that no one will tell you you should just get a mora. ;) ^ this. Something like the Mora Eldris would work just fine. From Spyderco's offering I'd say the Jumpmaster II, as she cuts like a demon, weights ~30 gr more than a Millie and carr...

Re: Ikuchi - fantastic knife!

I do believe 'fantastic' is the only way to describe the Ikuchi. The design is so streamlined and deceptively simple and yet you soon come to realize this is one of the cases when bare minimum is actually more than enough. Very happy with mine, the wheel flipper working intuitive from the get going,...
