Re: Delica Hap40 Wharncliffee

Another thing to note: I have the hap40 delica wharnie and the delica cruwear, after measuring, the delica wharnie is noticably thinner BTE than the standard delica blade ( at least with my specimens anyway). Did you ever measure if maybe the HAP40 Delica is also or in the first place thinner overa...

Re: S30v

So as a newcomer to S30v, what are the best sharpening methods? Angle, grit fineness, stropping etc. How do the experts maintain theirs. It will depend on what sharpening tools you have. You cant go wrong with coarse diamond/ cbn abrasive and brown ceramic ( if you have a spyderco sharpmaker). You ...

Re: S30v

I find for the most part, those that have complained about s30v is simply voicing their opinion on a steel thats just not suited for their style and use, and the few that just spew nonsense about theories on it. My expirience showed me that s30v is a steel that can give you a long working slicing ed...

Re: Do you immediately sharpen a new Spyderco?

Sometimes I do and sometimes I dont. Lately with spydercos, I have been using them first. Started with the Para3 in 4V. The latest one is the Delica4 in Cruwear, as it has a low angle edge which made it very sharp out of the box. I find most of these exclusives to have an edge out of box that will s...

Re: Reveal, lack of anticipation, general thoughts.

When it comes to spyderco for me, its the different steels and collaboration models. If it wasnt for those two things, I would have only owned two spyderco knives and thats it. Getting knives in different steels really resparked my ineterest in collecting knives again. Now, while still looking to ge...

Re: Shaman sprint or exclusive; what are you hoping for?

Ah, well if you’re talking about trying out the steels that BBB/DBH is using, I’d quickly exceed my ability to sharpen them without a significant investment and learning curve. I’ve only been part of this forum for a year, and prior to that I was using 154cm. I guess I don’t feel like I’ve mastered...

Re: Shaman sprint or exclusive; what are you hoping for?

I'm hoping that we can see the Shaman in a blade steel that has not been used for the Native5 or the Para3 That would rule out an awful lot of great steels! Are you not curious about the other HAP steels or the REX steels, and how they might perform? There's a staggering amount of steels out there ...

Re: Use and thoughts on Urban Coyote

Yes these so-called problems were a bit exaggerated. It’s true but life is not finished as nicely as the K3 90 but it is far from being bad. I like this platform for testing new steels because it gives me a knife I will actually use on a day-to-day basis. Now here’s the thing: when they come out wi...

Use and thoughts on Urban Coyote

In terms of some of the quality issues, my Urban has less than what was discussed in other threads. The back of the tang does stand a little proud to the spring when open, the jimps are fairly smooth, the spydie hole isn't uncomfortably rough, and the tip sits deep enough in the handle to where I'm ...

Re: Urban LW Coyote—realistic look

After doing cut testing with my urban coyote I found that AEB-L out cut V-TOKU2. My V-TOKU2 Dragonfly at 13dps cut just over 100ft of cardboard before not being able to slice paper, where as my AEB-L Urban at 18dps was able to cut just under 150ft of cardboard before it would no longer slice paper

I bet you a knife of your choosing I can baton through a 2x4 with a Svord Peasant :cool:
Wasnt refering to straight batoning. My method is batoning part of the way then I torque the blade to complete the split. I have no doubt that you can baton through a 2×4 with a Peasant :cool:

Re: Saber Grinds Revisited: Love, Hate, Indifference?

What type of jobs are you guys doing where the strength of a saber grinds vs FFG makes a big enough difference to sacrifice cutting performance? Think about this logically. If we say for example that short materials that the blade doesn't have to pass all the way through are ok for a saber grind an...

Re: Saber Grinds Revisited: Love, Hate, Indifference?

I have no problem using different grinds, as my knife collection has different ground blades. Sometimes I want a more robust grind (Saber) and sometimes I want a smooth pass ( FFG) for tasks that require the good portion of the blade to go through the material.

Maxamet is not fragile in any way.
Its more a matter of the fact that Maxamet is more vulnerable when it comes to latteral stress. Other than that, it can handle a few tough tasks

Any news on K390 Caly 3.5 LW? :D
Hey Woodpecker,

It's in-the-works. We're creating tooling. Once it's nailed down and ok, we'll consider steels. It's screw construction.

Hi Aquaman,

Once the 3.5 is in production, we'll consider your request.
