Re: New releases on the App

To list everything i got it missing a lot model/color/variation... in ''my collection'' ... As per exemple Bill Moran with orange handles not there... This is because discontinued products are not yet included in the app. We have a long list of additional things and features that we'll be improving...

Re: Upcoming Tenacious Lightweight

And it looks like the liners are NOT nested, which I think is a little bit of a bummer, but only a little bit.

Re: Upcoming Tenacious Lightweight

In this case cost savings does seem to be the driver. G10 models are more expensive based on materials, but are less expensive manufacture on a smaller scale because they don’t require the incredibly expensive molds that you need to make FRN scales. That’s why you really only see Spyderco’s most pop...

Re: Manix 2 Lightweight (Gray FRCP & CPM-CRUWEAR)

Yes, but please replace the rivets with screws! I'm leery about buying a non stainless steel in a knife I can't take apart. Translucent smoke gray please.

Re: FRCP vs. FRN

One thing I have noticed though is that around two of the rivets on the back of my Manix, there is what seems to be cloudy stress marks inside the FRCP. Almost like when you bend plastic and it turns white, but running through the inside near the rivet. I'm not particularly worried about it, but it ...

Re: FRCP vs. FRN

I'll preface this by saying I do not have any Golden made FRN knives (yet... Native LW is coming in a month or two), so my comparison will be between my orange Dragonfly and blue Manix LW. I'll also say the Manix LW is my all time favorite knife currently. If I had one wish it would probably be some...

Re: Upcoming Tenacious Lightweight

I personally am happy to see it’s described as having a “four position clip” rather than a “deep carry pocket clip” because while I love the wire clip, in my experience it’s less durable than the hourglass clip on a normal Tenacious. I do like the clip configuration on the G10 model with the hole su...

Re: Upcoming Tenacious Lightweight

I does say that, totally missed it! I still wonder if they would be nested or not, I would assume so based on the Seki lightweights and the Chaparral that got the LW treatment. I look forward to seeing what it looks like with Bi-directional texturing. I am really fond of the pattern and think it’ll ...

Upcoming Tenacious Lightweight

I haven’t seen anything on this and I’m surprised. I looked at the Reveal section of the app and I noticed a few recently added models. The straight spine Stretch ($145) and Cruwear/Micarta Shaman ($320) were both on there which I’ve seen conversation on already before they popped up on there, but I...

Re: pacific salt tattoo

I usually have a knife or two on me as well when I am out mountain biking, generally a folder in my pocket and a fixed blade IWB in place of my pistol. That’s about as disarmed as I generally want to be, but I have taken off the fixed blade on a few occasions when I’m doing something particularly da...

Re: Pivot screw Dragonfly Salt

My experience with these knives is that you have to choose between no blade play and a smooth easy to open pivot or you tighten the pivot and remove blade play and make the action stiff. I find the best balance between the two and leave it alone. More to the point of the thread, this has been my ex...

Re: Pivot screw Dragonfly Salt

The pivot is a D shape, the problem is that FRN can only handle so much torque on the pivot screws before the hole rounds out and the FRN can no longer hold the pivot pin from spinning. This is why IMO every knife needs small minimalist liners around the pivot pin to prevent this from happening (al...

Re: Para 2 Lightweight?

I thought this was speculation for a new Para 2 model (which doesn't exist). It's curious why Spyderco put a number at the end when each model has a different name. Why not just call them Military, Paramilitary, and Para? Originally it was just the Military and the smaller Paramilitary. Then, much ...

Re: Z-Cut Spyderco Food Prep Knife in BD1N!

I would be very interested in the Z-Cut knives offered in another length or two. My thinking would be another almost identical in shape, just 2-4” longer. Inexpensive, American made kitchen knives are a fantastic prospect, and I’m already planning on giving away a bunch of the current ones as gifts.

Anyone know where a guy could find scales like these?
Search “blade scales” on google, should be the first link. They make G10 scales for all sorts of Spydercos with that kind of texture. About $40 for Dragonfly scales.

Re: Roman knife

Very cool! Thanks for sharing. As ChrisinHove said, knowing that most of those knives were left there by people who likely used them to kill someone, and seeing all those broken tips, I don’t think I want to see how most got there!

Re: Interested in getting my PPL. Any pilots out there?

So my first piece of advice is this- pay attention and don't trust anyone. Complacency kills. I have lost a few friends now because of complacency. In the end YOU are the final person who is responsible for your own safety. Second- Learn your machine inside and out. It is safer for you to know HOW ...

Re: Interested in getting my PPL. Any pilots out there?

Trent Palmer's videos are very good, though those pilots in his videos are very experienced and some of their planes are set up for performance over endurance and reliability, something Palmer does mention. Yeah, the frequent engine-outs and other “emergencies” they experience probably attest to th...
