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....

Re: DLT Exclusive OD Green G10 / DLC S90V PM2 Available March 30th @ 11:00 AM CST

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 ...

Re: If you liked X you’ll love Y

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.

DELICA 4 ... ZOME ... 20CV ... DLT EXCLUSIVE!!!

(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.)

Re: Spyderco Waiter's Corkscrew

Corkscrew? Do NOT get a corkscrew anywhere NEAR any of my bottles. Two-pronged puller--that's it. But if there was a top-shelf two-prong Spyderco puller, I'd be interested. 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 ...

Re: What did you use your Spyderco for last?

Cutting 1" black plastic irrigation pipe.

The Wharncliffe blade was a perfect match for the task - the tip for slicing old pipe at barb fittings, and the long straight edge for cutting thru new pipe.

Re: Spyderco Waiter's Corkscrew

There are some nice ones out there. The lever style hinged corkscrews(is that waiter style? I don't know the lingo) seem to work far better than the sak style for me. As for a Spyderco version, I don't think I'd be into it. Spyderco, for me, is all about cutting performance and superior ergonomics....
