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...

Re: The Truth About The Ikuchi

Nah, it's more of an Ikuchi thing (much more than the usual Spyderco one).
The amount of magic/voodoo Paul imbued in this one must really be staggering...
Same thing happened here, the darn thing is somehow glued to my pockets no matter where I am/what I wear.

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...

Ikuchi for me.
I like a lot the front flipper on the Smock but not much else.

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,...

Re: Who else is getting an Ikuchi as soon as they are released?

Strange (and a bit sad) to see folks experiencing issues with their Ikuchis, I'm really enjoying mine and do hope it sells well enough for Spyderco to look into building the entire series. To me the wheel flipper worked like a charm from the get going, I've had no issues deploying the blade with eit...

Mine's here as well, cool little knife

So not-Spyderco at a first glance, yet sooo-Spyderco the more you think about it :)
Hope the rest of the series materializes *fingers crossed*

What Millie will be 'revealed' next?

I have enough Millies to last me a couple of lives but just for the fun of it, what do you think Spyderco's next move will most likely be? Educated guess or wishful thinking, let your imagination fly :) 1) Military 2 (the long overdue update featuring the Stop lock) 2) Maxamet Millie 3) Salt Millie ...

Re: Dyad II or New Concept Double Blade Folder?

Interested in this from a technical problem-solving perspective and being yet another Spyderco that pushes the boundaries of possible, but lately I've learned there's no task (in my regular usage) that a serrated blade can't perform, so I don't foresee any immediate need for me to carry both blade t...
