Re: Which Spydercos Are In Your EDC Rotation?

9 times out of 10 I'll have on me the Watu and Police4LW, between them they can easily handle everything I might require during the day. Sometimes it's their fancy pants counterparts (Ikuchi and Millie) but that's mostly due to the fact the scales are relatively new on both and I get a kick from car...

Re: Where do you grip large knives with a choil?

Away from the choil would be my instinctive grip. I should also make a distinction on my user experience when using choils. I fully, totally, whole-heartedly dislike the type of handle that has a quite pronounced 'point' that forces your grip in a certain position (like seen on the Para3, ParaMilita...

Re: Collection Limiting Rules

I only have 2 rules: - do not buy exact duplicates - if not used/carried for more than 3 months (unless part of a more elaborate rotation system), sell it I've broken my first rule only recently, with the Watu (although I must admit, that was partially due to the allure of having wooden scales insta...

Re: 3/4 of 2020 are almost passed...

The Watu really "speaks to me" more and more [...] Just a bit pricey especially here in Europe, and I wish they would have kept the frame lock (or make it a linerlock) of the Chokwe. It's the exact opposite for me: the frame-lock on the Chokwe has made it a hard pass at that time, but I'd love to s...

Re: 3/4 of 2020 are almost passed...

My most anticipated knife of the year has been Watu, bought it as soon as it was out. Found it so good that I immediately broke my 'no duplicates' rule. Also got a SPY27 Para3 so I can play with the steel. Definitely must buys for the rest of 2020 are the S90V Native Chief and from the new reveal th...

Re: 2021 Spyderco Forum Calendar - Prizes Correction

Nice gesture on Spyderco's part, definitely feels like an upgrade. I like my SPY27 Para3 well enough, but the Watu has to be my most carried knife at the moment and possibly one of the best knives I've ever edc'd

A long-winded tale of how 2 orange-and-black Militaries came to be

So here I was fondly perusing my Military horde (not-so-gratuitous pic, you'll see if you keep on reading) https://i.imgur.com/rp79tYh.jpg and wondering which should go into rotation when I noticed I have 2 of them almost exactly alike (namely the orange S30V) and since I’m a bit keen on not having ...

The only thing wrong with the Military is that there haven't been any new releases in quite some time.

Re: What do you want in a new Salt knife?

Another vote for the Military (LC200N blade & liner, Ti standoffs, lanyard tube, screws and clip, yellow G10). I'm saying 'liner' because pre-2004 Millies used to have only the one anyway (presentation side used to be a full G10 slab, still plenty strong in my experience). If that fails to materiali...

Re: Please Pardon the shameful sales pitch - Rock Jumper

I've found the overall shape of the handle to be much more important than the existence (or lack) of jimping. I have Pacific Salts both with- and without jimping on the thumb ramp - and in all honesty I can't see the jimping itself making a world of difference. I grew accustomed to it I guess but wh...

Re: Please Pardon the shameful sales pitch - Rock Jumper

No need for a pitch, I'm willing to try it out :) but ideally I'd want an Endura-sized sibling to follow, if sales justify it

Re: Renegade sprint run?

I'd be down for a pair (prefer the somewhat shallower, Military-like choil on these vs. the deep one on Natives). That clip point is sweet, too.
