Re: DLT Kapara Exclusive!

I did so well this year until April keeping my interest in acquiring knives in check. So much is tempting me lately! Already purchased 3 this month and put in an order for another. Now this one comes along .... :mad: :mad: :mad: !!!

Re: Fairly comprehensive list of Spyderos in movies, tv shows, etc

Watched The Hunter this a.m. and noticed the Spyderco coming out of pocket about 51 minutes in ... saber grind Delica.

Re: Poll: CPM S45VN Mule

I usually buy mules. When I acquire other fixed blade or folder in same steel, I now let the mule go. I have two fixed blades and one folder in S45VN so I'm likely passing on this one. If I was to get one, it would be for a gift to someone else I know.

Surprises me too. I concluded that many Syderco knife collectors are highly price sensitive.

Re: Bento Box Something Something....

Congrats!!! That is a lot of effort and risk and cost on your part; hope it turns out to be everything you hoped for. A reminder to us in the U.S. how good we do have it when it comes to getting a Spyderco. So many belly-ache and moan about BBS pricing and shipping costs, as well as missing out on h...

Re: Seki Sprint Revival

Today I watched a Super Blue Delica get bid up to $400 (before shipping fees) on a certain auction site. I believe that’s something like 500% of the MAP for that knife... I'm wondering if stimulus money could be driving this. I know the supply chain is still slow, but it seems like a lot of things ...

Re: Caly 3.5 HAP40 sprint run?

I'd like to see more Seki HAP40!!! I think a run of the entire Seki family in Burnt Orange HAP40 linerless would be awesome!!! Starting with the Delica and Endura and then expanding from there. As of now I'm done with Seki other than FRN (so no stainless, titanium, g10, carbon fiber for me); FRN Cal...

Re: Special Ladybug Idea

I'm not a Ladybug fan ... but if I was I can see the appeal of this. DLT is likely listening. I did pick up the Delica and actually like it more in person than in the photo as the red isn't as vibrant. The Delica is done in 20CV and I think that would be a great steel for the ladybug as well. Why wo...

Re: Chaparral LW in colors, please

I parted ways with the Chap LW and opted for the G10 and carbon fiber so no longer a knife I'm interested in, but I am certain others would enjoy it in different colors. I'd like to see it remain within the gentleman's knife arena so no froot loop colors on this one. I'd like to suggest marbled FRN....

I was watching this one. I'm glad to see it sold out and I'm happier to see it didn't happen in a few brief minutes. Around the lunch hour here, I did put it in my cart and redeemed my rewards points - then, I ended out passing on it as I originally intended. Now hoping I don't regret this later on ...

Delica -> Other Spyderco CG I don't get it. If you like a Delica, you're gonna love a Respect? Or a Tusk? Or the Spyder Throwers? :confused: Spyderco has such a broad repertoire of different knives. Some similar to the Delica. But some are very VERY different. That's OK. But basically one of their ...

Re: Spyderco Waiter's Corkscrew

I was a fan of the two prong for a very long time ... until I had a mishap and sliced my finger on it. There will be no going back. The benefit of a two-pronger is that they're better at removing ancient corks from vintage bottles of wine. Screws can break apart the cork and bring great sadness. An...

For me, there is a strong ergonomic similarity between Manix, Native and Chapparal (and UKPK).
I thought the Manix LW and the SS Stretch seemed much the same - but I haven't heard others sharing a similar opinion so maybe that's just me.

(been on the fence and teetering with this one for some time. Since seki frn hap40 isn't much available anymore, this will have to quench my appetite. Also, BBS M390 D4 isn't available anymore as well.)
