Re: Chaparral FRN CQI

This is the issue with my original. The wire clip doesn't sit as deep in the frn as my other wire clipped Spydies. The grooves are not as deep so the clip ends ride above flush. My others are all flush.

Re: Anyone enjoying the Roadie?

The Roadie is one of my favorite little coin pocket knives. Takes a great edge and opens boxes and blister packs like nobody's business.

Re: Upcoming Sage 5 LW - Who's In?

I've never had a Sage and I may just have to pick up the LW when it drops. I really like my Chaparral FRN and carry it often. Either of these knives will excel at most of my weekday/workday EDC needs. If I needed something a little stouter I'd carry my Native 5 LW. If I needed a little more reach I'...

Re: Any chance of a Elmax Para 3 and or Military

I'd buy any model in Elmax. I just have one small fixed blade in Elmax and I absolutely love this steel.

Re: Is the Manix 2 LW moving to BD1N?

I agree with screw construction as long as it is not a deal killer. I've had my blue LW for years and I've used it hard. It's still tight as a drum.

I'm not sure about a Salt Manix 2 LW. I don't think it's possible to make that CBBL lock corrosion proof.

Re: Is the Manix 2 LW moving to BD1N?

I second this question and I'm totally in support of a new transluscent color. Let's get some more support for this folks!

Re: Latest Spyderco Byte

Overall a pretty exciting Reveal. The Sage 5 LW and the new offset kitchen knives are definite pick-ups for me. My knife block is really gonna pop with a yellow handle in it.

Latest Spyderco Byte

Nice write-up on the history and development of FRN and FRCP. Given all the patterns and color combos available in FRN, I'm left wondering why FRCP hasn't had similar development? It just seems to languish in comparison. I've always hoped to see more transluscent color options in FRCP, but they neve...

Re: Endela-i want one

I'm in, I think it will hit the sweet spot for me. I've never really warmed up to the Delica, and the Endura is more folder than I usually want to carry.

Re: The GOLDENSTONE: Any new talk? Any Hope For More Grit Selections?

I used to reach for my Doublestuff whenever I needed a quick touch-up. Then I got a Doublestuff 2 and that became my go-to. Now the Goldenstone is what I reach for first. My Doublestuffs reside in my go bag and day pack. I have a Sharpmaker and benchstones (Spidy ceramic and DMT diamond) when more t...

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

Wire clips are the bomb. All I carry any more are LW FRN with wire clips. Fantastic for EDC and 90% of my cutting needs. I've started carrying a small fixed blade (2.5" - 3.5") for the other 10%.

Re: Casual Sage 5 Lightweight reveal

I've been hankerin' for a Sage 5 for a while. Think I'll just wait for the FRN version now. I'm not gonna be able to resist the Ikuchi for long though.

Re: The Chaparral is a large knife

I love the FRN Chappy and carry it daily during the week. That may change one day if/when the FRN Caly 3.5 ever comes out. I carry a fixed blade on weekends, with a Spyderco Roadie in my coin pocket.

Re: Doublestuff 2 - need a bigger one!

When the Double stuff 2 isn't big enough for the job, or portability isn't a concern, I just reach for the Goldenstone. In fact, the Goldenstone has become my favorite free hand sharpener. I'm looking forward to the upcoming CBN version and the new base that Sal has talked about.

Re: Will the Paramilitary FRN replace the Delica?

The Para 3 LW appeals to me more than the Delica 4. I've tried to like the Delica but it just doesn't do it for me. That being said, I really get excited about these new LW FRN releases. The Chappy, this Para 3, and the future Caly 3.5 that Sal has mentioned. These and the UKPK, as well as the Urban...
