Re: Steel number 30 will be... BD1N used in a Chicago

I've been well pleased with Spyderco BD1N. I've had a UKPK in BD1N for some time and it's a worker. I also picked up a Manix 2 LW Translucent Blue last month when I was able to find it in BD1N. I've had the BD1 version for years but was so happy with the BD1N steel in my UKPK that I decided to upgra...

Re: Manix 2 now in BD1N?

I've had the blue translucent in BD1 for years and use it regularly. After enjoying my UKPK in BD1N, I had to spring for the new BD1N Manix 2 LW as well. Looks absolutely identical. Aside from some light wear on my old one, and the BD1N etch on the new one, there are literally no differences. I've a...

Re: We need more Manix 2 Light Weights!

New BD1N blue transluscent on the way. I would love to see some new transluscent colors and steel choices.

Re: How often do you sharpen your babys

Pretty much daily when used. Sometimes just for the heck of it. I admit that I have a free hand fetish though. It's kinda therapeutic for me.

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...

Still on the hunt for the new Cat in CTS-BD1N. Does anyone know what type of washers the new ones are sporting?

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.
