Re: The PERFECT Double Bladed Folder?

Here is a quickly and poorly drawn example of what I’m describing next to a current Manix cage. It could be made with either one or two springs depending on what works best in development. http://imgdump5.novarata.net/640x480/u0bq31.jpg The cage is really the biggest difference between this and a no...

Re: The PERFECT Double Bladed Folder?

I think the perfect double bladed folder is one where the two blades open from the same end, not opposite ends. That immediately solves a big part of the ergonomics issue. The next issue with Spyderco specifically in that case would be the opening hole, but if the blades were somewhat ‘nested’ a-la ...

Re: Delica Wave Wharncliffe concept

The other nice thing with the profile is it would likely be more effective at penetrating as well due to the reduced angle at tip and the spine being closer to parallel with the edge.

Re: Delica Wave Wharncliffe concept

That would be real thin at the spine. But as long as your not using it as a pry tool you should be alright. I did have to change the angle of the spine multiple times to accommodate a deep enough wave as to be functional while keeping the knife as tall as possible for strength. It would definitely ...

Re: Yojimbo 2 wharncliffe with straight edge vs. curved sword cutting philosophy

I’m no expert by any means, but I think the key does lie in the blade length. The benefit the Wharncliffe blade gives really shines when you are looking at shorter blades that otherwise wouldn’t have the cutting power behind it. Box cutters are extremely effective at cutting. Knives like the Squareh...

Re: Delica Wave Wharncliffe concept

I actually saw a Wharncliffe from them that was reground with much of the hump removed, but no Emerson opener. That’s actually what got me thinking about modifying an existing knife!

Delica Wave Wharncliffe concept

I’ve been on a search for the perfect back-up knife lately, something to carry in the left front pocket to supplement a pistol or primary knife on the right hand side. Something that would be somewhat compact with quick deployment and be effective at disabling and deterring. I really love Michael Ja...

Re: How can we get more women interested in Spyderco knives?

I obviously can’t speak for women in general, but for my wife it comes solely down to colors, appearance and size. If it looks cute, her face lights up. If it looks “scary”, she’s pretty much immediately turned off. Color is a huge factor though, to the point that I can show her two identical cars a...

Re: Emphasis

This is a very interesting knife for sure, I too wish it was in a better steel though. As it stands, that’s a deal breaker for me personally, but I understand why they use it. That being said, I’d love to see the more popular Chinese models (Tenacious, Efficient, soon to be Emphasis, maybe some Byrd...

Re: Tanto PM2 Support Thread

If Spyderco were to make this with the G10 handle and one type of steel, which steel would you want? S30V Cru Wear M4 VG10 Maxamet Other: And which one? Personally CruWear for a working knife, which is where the Tanto shines I believe. Probably M4 too, though I don’t know how the toughness compares...

Re: Manix titanium ball bearing cage

Flytanium has Manix ball cages in Titanium ($39), copper ($34) and brass ($34). The titanium ones come in either a stonewash or anodized for $6 more. *edit* oops, totally missed the fact that there are 3 pages and this fact has already been stated :o

Re: Centofante love?

I just recently picked one up to give as a gift. I like to break in knives I give away a bit as to leave a good first impression to whoever I give it to, and it also gives me the chance to play with the knife myself :D that said, I was very impressed with it the short time I had it. It’s very nice o...

Re: Tanto PM2 Support Thread

I’m just throwing my name in as well to say that if Spyderco did release a tanto PM2 I’d certainly buy one! One caveat though is it would need to not be an exclusive, they should be available to all! In regards to steel I would be fine with it remaining S30V, that’s a great steel. If they released i...

Re: Compression Lock Millie?

I’ll start by saying I don’t know if any changes would “make me buy” a military, because it’s a little long for my taste, but I will say a compression lock paired with tip down carry capability would make the Military much more compelling to me. Enough so it may go on my wish list. I don’t have a pr...

Re: China and tariffs

I agree with Eli Chaps 100%. I like a number of the knives made in China and I think that the best ones will survive with any increase in tariffs. I would love to see an American made Tenacious though.
