Re: Paramilitary2 revisited

Surprised you didnt have a similar love with your 52100 PM2, Cruwear and 52100 are actually fairly close in behavior. 52100 loves to take a screaming sharp polished edge in my experience and holds it long enough while being tough as nails. Both steels also will patina over time and build some charac...

Re: The Never Ending Appeal Of The Old School Spyders

I find the old Endura with the pointy tip and different shaped handle to be a super good looking knife in full SE... not even my taste really but something about that knife looks so mean but sleek at the same time. I know the Endura we have now is improved but I'd buy an older style Endura in a hear...

Re: Problem with Maxamet PM2 from the new run

Please post back with all findings, both of you. I'm looking forward to getting my first blade in Maxamet soon. I've sharpened a Maxamet Mule for someone before and its hardness was certainly apparent. However, it WAS easier than s110v, as far as time invested to achieve high sharpness. Well I've s...

Re: Problem with Maxamet PM2 from the new run

I find that mine feels really soft too. Super easy to raise a burr on Diamond. First edge i put on rolled over slightlyduring a days work. Seems better now though but it does seem to handle impact suspicously well from what I've gathered. Dropped it on it's tip in a hard wood floor, no issue. Hit a...

Re: exclusives and sprints vs. production

If they release too many production steels it'll eat up the sales of other steels... also we might love certain steels as enthusiasts but average Joe the knife user couldn't care less about the marginal difference between S30V and 20CV or even better S30V and S35VN. I know for a fact that person wil...

Re: Endela-thread

... The built quality of my SE model is also outstanding. I'll definitely get a PE too, but try to wait for a blue one... hopefully the Endela will come in more color options soon... I'm almost certain we'll see the same treatment that the Endura and Delica have with all the various options coming ...

Re: Endela-thread

Thanks for answering all my questions on the Endela beforehand Wartstein! I received mine in the mail yesterday and normally I wouldn't give my thoughts on a knife after one day of use but I had a weird day at work where I did the amount of cutting that I'd probably normally do in maybe 2 weeks almo...

Re: Endela-thread

I'll definitely share my thoughts when I get it in hand! The PM2 is my favorite knife and the Endela seems like a more abuse ready PM2. At about half the price of an all black S30V PM2 here in Canada theres a really good chance the Endela will be coming to work with me a lot more often than one of ...

Re: Spyderco BM Proper Killer!

It would be awesome to get something like the proper that actually cuts well haha... they come with like a 25 dps edge and a lazy plunge grind so the choil has to be modified to prevent it from getting an ugly smile when dropping back the edge angle to something proper like 17 dps... a little high c...

Re: Endela-thread

But then for me there is something not really rationally explainable about the Endela. It just "connects" with me, looks perfectly balanced and proportioned(though strictly functionally speaking the blade could be a bit longer) , a bit sturdier than Endura and Delica . It´s a knife I look at and in...

Re: Spyderco Knives

Every other production knife brand I've tried caters to the average user who doesn't care about the fine details and all the technical parts of high end knives. Spyderco as a company are all knife nerds at heart and it shows... their products pay attention to the little details that mean a lot to so...

Re: Marbled CF or Scale Swap?

My knives with CF scales seem to hold up a little better than G10 actually. Now I haven't caused some major impacts to these knives so I cant say absolutely that its a stronger material but it seems to be a little tougher against dings and dents than G10, which is already a very strong material.

Para 3 LW Sprint Runs

Like many around here I think the Para 3 LW is an amazing knife! Today I was doing some thinking about which steels i'm excited to see this knife come out in and it made me think about how good of a candidate this knife will actually be for just specifically testing steels. While the regular Para 3 ...

Re: The Future of the Para 2? I'm sort of worried

To me it would be like Chevy discontinuing the Corvette model >> well maybe not to that extreme but you all get where I'm coming from. Maybe more like Ford discontinuing the insanely popular do everything F150 in favor of the compromise that is the Ranger. Hit the nail right on the head there!

Re: The Future of the Para 2? I'm sort of worried

I'm pretty sure the PM2 sprints still sell out faster than Para 3 sprints... the Maxamet PM2's literally flew off shelves in the blink if an eye... the maxamet para 3s sold quick but not at that speed. People still love the PM2, just it's been around longer so the Para 3 has things to be said about ...

Re: Knives you rarely carry but hesitate to part with for non sentimental reasons?

All my non Spyderco knives haha... reach for other brands to do cutting tasks and wondered why I even bothered and just grab something from the spydie collection to actually get the job done. Also my Manix 2... the knife just isnt for me for various reasons despite being a great cutter,beefy as hell...
