Re: Past Spyderco Collaborators You Would Like To See Again?

Eduard Bradichansky. No new designs or projects (IIRC he was killed by the Hamas), but I'd looove a H1 (or LC200N) SpyderCard.

Re: Spyderco Military Observations

Great story, Vivi - and one I can definitely relate to. 2007 was also the year when I've discovered both the Pacific Salt and the Military and they've quickly became the golden standard to measure everything else against. This thread triggered my own 'down memory lane' moment, I hope it's not derail...

Re: Spyder Classics: The C-39 Dyad Jr. ( Micarta & FRN)

I have had the black pearl Micro Dyad and gifted it to my mother. Lovely little folder. She carries it in her purse and uses it quite frequently. A bit on the small side for me, for my uses the Jr. would be the most apt candidate for a resurrection (feels like the full size model might be a bit bulk...

Re: Spyderco MSRP Increase for 2021?

Well the lc200n Pacific Salt after map price went up $25. Thats ridiculous. Ouch, just ouch. Glad I've got mine back in December. Alas, under these circumstances I'll mostly never buy the SE LC200N PS, bit of a shame, really. Regardless, I guess my philosophy would remain the same "if I see somethi...

Re: Any blade play in the New Green Pac Salt?

Could be, I guess - in which case I thank them for a job well done :) . Might not be a washer at all (this is why I've been using all the disclaimers above) but it's the only explanation I'm being able to come up with based on looks alone and without tearing it apart. Excluding the (quite) wide gap ...

Re: Any blade play in the New Green Pac Salt?

Got mine from Lamnia and couldn't be happier. https://i.imgur.com/D9Bbs1j.jpg The Seki vertical-play is there, but not as bad as I expected (the H1 one is a bit worse). There is no lateral bladeplay, but that is achieved at the cost of what seems like sandwiching only one washer between the blade an...

LC200N Pacific Salt

Got mine for a while, here's a bunch of thoughts in no particular order. https://i.imgur.com/D9Bbs1j.jpg Thin FFG, I very much prefer it over the sabre ground version. This is my first LC200N blade, can't wait to compare it against thin FFG H1. The Seki vertical-play is there, but not as bad as I ex...

Re: Oh to be in love again...

I pretty much feel the same about the Watu. It might be 'the' EDC. Not too small, not too big. Secure in hand even with the bare minimum of jimping due to the reversed-coffin shape of the handle. Works great for controlled draw-cutting (while on trail I've done some makeshift skewers to cook sausage...

Re: Seconds & used sale - a perspective

I think it was a massive endeavor, Spyderco employees rock for willingly putting that amount of work into something that was, I guess, a lot less rewarding for them than getting to interact with the end users in person. The time zone did not work too well for me so I didn't even plan to buy somethin...

Re: Tell us about your Spyderco Knife of the Year 2020

Definitely the Watu, the only knife ever that has got me to buy a pre-needed precise duplicate. Love everything about it, from the grip-agnostic handle, to the thin blade with pointy tip, to the the bare minimum of jimping, everything is as it should :) I'd also buy a Chokwe if it will ever make a r...

Re: Might as well jump: RockJumper first impressions

Got one in SE as well and it rocks, this is a purebred edc all-round performer. The handle is everything I'd hoped for, designed with just the right amount of contour to it and flared at both ends, plus a fatter body. I personally miss neither the jimping nor the Boye dent, their lack adds a no-fril...

Re: Boye dent poll. Let your voice be heard or be a sheep in a herd.

I don't feel it's needed so voted to ditch it. However, I'd still buy models with the dent if they otherwise appeal to me.

Re: How about a new Military?

Voted Maxamet but I'd most likely buy any new Military. After using my Watu for half an year now, for sure I'd like to see a 20CV version and be able to do a bit of comparison against my M390 and 204P ones. And I'd be thrilled to smithereens to see a yellow G10 LC200N.

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...
