Re: Mule Team MT28P CPM SPY27 Revealed!

This is my first Mule, and I’m brainstorming what I want to do with the handle! I would like to make it out of wood sourced from Wisconsin, but all the details are what I need to figure out cause I’ve never made a handle before. I’m really looking forward to trying out Spydercos own steel though!

Re: Naked and afraid...

I chose other, but I’ll elaborate on all 3. If I don’t have a knife or scissors handy, I use specific things for specific tasks. I use my teeth to cut the little plastic tags that hang on clothes and other soft items, but not much else. I use keys to open boxes and other things secured with tape usu...

Giving heat treating secrets away to a Chinese company seems to be self-defeating in the long run.
That is a valid concern.

Re: Suggestion for changing Spyderco budget knife steel 8Cr13Mov

I appreciate Spyderco’s kind of tradition of using Japanese steels on the Japanese knives, American steel in the American knives and so on. I think it’s very fitting and I have no doubt it’s cost effective. I don't agree with the idea that they need to just import *insert steel here* to improve the ...

Re: Suggestion for changing Spyderco budget knife steel 8Cr13Mov

I understand the interest in using a steel domestic to the factory, makes total sense. I don’t think the whole product line needs to be changed, your average consumer doesn't even look at the knife steel or even know what it means, but if they picked 3 or 4 of the most popular Chinese models and mad...

Re: Good kayak knife?

The Siren’s design was driven by that exact environment, and I hear it’s a jewel of craftsmanship to boot.

Re: Purchase limits on Sprints/Exlusives

And how would they enforce it? What would stop someone from buying one knife from BHQ, one from Knife Center, one from DLT trading etc? MAP is a bit easier to police; if someone is advertising below MAP, there you go. How could they track and regulate how many knives any individual gets?

Re: PRICING

My .02 is that yes, Spyderco is getting to be more expensive than a lot of people can easily afford. Yes, the quality of the product (especially the American made knives) is worth it. What I’ve noticed is that Spyderco has largely moved out of the scope of the “average” buyer unfortunately, save the...

Yeah, I can't reach the lock like that, unfortunately. Small hands strike again. :(
I’m going to use this as an opportunity to once again advocate for a ~Native 5 or Chaparral sized mini-Manix :p

Re: Pocket clip decisions and preferences

I personally like “standard clips” over the deep carry variety. Much like people worried about possibility of printing when carrying a gun, the vast majority of people are too concerned with whatever they are doing to notice the little bit of a pocket knife sticking out of your pocket even though it...

Re: Closing a CBBL - alternatives

This is the last method I consciously use to close it, I had to do it with my left hand so I don’t cheat and use the clip, this is how I normally do it with my left hand though. My fingers end up laying more flat so there’s more contact on the handle, but I release the lock much the same as I do wit...

Re: Closing a CBBL - alternatives

This one is less “safe” I guess, but if I wanna close the knife more slowly without needing a wrist flick, I’ll use my thumb on the lock and my index finger on the back of the blade, fully disengage the lock and move the blade slightly closed with my index finger. Then I’ll let go of the lock, repos...

Re: Closing a CBBL - alternatives

If your hands are big enough, this is another way I close it, with the butt in my palm and my thumb and index pinching the lock, no other fingers are involved in this one, so obviously no bracing. Flick the wrist to close.

Re: Closing a CBBL - alternatives

Sorry in advance for all the photos, this is the best way I can think of to convey how I do it. This is how I’m assuming you close it bracing against the clip, which is also how I normally close it.

Re: Spyderco Face Mask (now bandana, hat and patch)

For the patch, just a simple spider like the decals or a spider in a circle would be nice. For something with a bit more detail, something along these lines would be cool. Red, yellow and dark blue colors, mountains and the Spyderco logo with or without the bug. The other text can be omitted so it c...

Re: Siren is shipping *alert*

I can also say objectively that my two Sirens are the smoothest of any backlocks I’ve ever owned, Golden made or otherwise. I didn’t really design the Siren to be a fidgeter’s knife but with how smooth the lock is and all the different ways you can flick, manipulate and close it, I think it qualifi...
