Re: Favorite 2018 Sprint

As usual, they are always gone by the time I get onto them... so I didn't get any.

Sounds like a good plan. But when you reach 600+ knives what then becomes your criteria?

Re: The Serpent's Fang in CTS-XHP a Keeper!

Good to see 'em getting used.

Goofy, ugly, kwirky ... we all have felt it ... then we are overtaken by them. What kind of Spyderco voodoo is that???

Hundred Pacer may just be the best Spyderco yet!!!

Re: 3V edge retention stainless equal???

Me also thinks all these rage blade steels will follow the footsteps of s30v and there will need to be something else new and or different which opens the door for 3V.

I've not yet fallen victim to the lures of the Shaman ... but if I was; i'd be very excited about micarta.

Re: Is my Delica fake?

That don't look too good. Here is a pic of the one I picked up from SFO. Your photo washes out the blade; is there a visible line of the laminated steel about an 1/8" up from edge? CG Another thing, does yours say SUS410 or SUS310? I noticed that in the listing on BladeHQ, it says SUS310 (but the p...

Re: 2019 off to a good Spydiestart!

Good start and much the same here: a bushcraft, a mule, and a para 3 lightweight cpm-s30v lapel pin! Now saying good-bye to a damascus delica and almost ordered a KW PM2 exclusive today but now back on the fence with that one ... way too many choices out there!

Re: S30V Only Cool if it's a Benchmade?

Agree... s30v doesn't have that second kinda cool thing going on anymore. Just plane old hum drum standard knife steel. I liked the Mini Grip with the hole, but have finally let them go and don't see any Grip in my future! I'm like you and don't like the thumb stud (just there to get hung up on some...

Re: Do Spyderco Knives Have No Flaws?

I suspect they (Spyderco company/staff) care enough about their customers to hear you out and try to resolve the problem in a favorable way. I recommend you discuss directly with them. I'm sure they are all for constructive criticism. If it is for no other reason than to bash the company I'd hope so...

Re: S30V Only Cool if it's a Benchmade?

I've been considering an Osborne 940... then end out buying something Spyderco! Go figure. If you include exclusives, the Osborne comes in 20CV, D2, S90V, and M390 - not just boring s30v. As you mentioned with the grip .. it is getting revamped with s30v in lieu of 154cm ... so I'm seeing s30v as s...

3V edge retention stainless equal???

OK, I am into a few shots of whiskey at the moment. What I would like to know is: what 3V edge retention is comparable to in stainless (what I am most familiar with) for slicing use only - field dressing animals, cleaning trout, cutting cardboard and packaging tape and such (not trying to slice bras...

To be honest, I'd probably be the Delica. Nothing too remarkable, but usually able to get the job done. :D
I was thinking the same for myself. Nothing about me is going to make me stand out in a crowd ... I'm just plain ol' good (strong performer really) at what I do!

Re: CRU-WARE or CTS-XHP ?

I had read info that made me think CTS-XHP is a steel I would like but the reviews I came across the reviewers didn't toot their horn to loudly. Glad to see it being mentioned as under-rated. Chaparral LW on the short list (he he... and not because it is a short knife)!
