Re: Spyderco for firefighter

I would think one of the rescue knives, maybe the Assist or a Pacific Salt would be good choices.

Re: Knife & Watch

No watch, but this is what’s on me most days. I’ll mix up the knife sometimes, but the Manix 2 LW gets the most pocket time.

Would classic burgundy micarta be a good match, ala the early Jester? I think it would be excellent.
That would look great!

Re: Micarta Chaparral

Much as I love Micarta, I don't think the Chaparral is the best vehicle for it. Micarta looks best when it's thick enough to be at least a bit rounded so the layers are visible. The Chaparral, at least so far, has featured thin flat scales. Still, if it was done with "original recipe" Micarta and n...

Re: s90v SHAMAN IS OUT

As much as I like Sal's designs I'm sorry to say but this an overrated folder and has quite a few issues design wise .... don't want to go into details. Some say it's a PM2+Manix2 killer... I say NO WAY. I have the feeling that all this Shaman hype will fade out, I've seen this before with so many ...

Re: s90v SHAMAN IS OUT

I think a Shaman LW, especially in the way Golden usually makes them without any liners at all, would be grossly blade heavy. As it sits with steel liners and a steel backspacer hanging on the end the knife still feels blade heavy swinging it out. Theres a lot more mass than the Manix blade, thats f...

Re: Micarta Chaparral

I just remembered the Sun & Moon G10 is coming, so any Micarta variant would follow that. I am looking forward to that one, it looks really cool. I already plan on getting the Raffir Noble at some point, so if they do come out with a Micarta Chaparral I may end up with a small collection of Chaps!

Micarta Chaparral

“Spyderco’s Chaparral series is a family of slim, pocket-friendly gentlemen’s folding knives that celebrates the diversity of different handle materials and treatments.” So far we’ve had iterations in carbon fiber/G10 laminate, a few titanium versions, Raffir Noble and FRN. I think that Micarta wou...

Re: Note to self - only let the GF carry stainless knives...

I use brake cleaner to clean the crud off my work knife all the time, brake cleaner is good for everything! The stuff I use is non-chlorinated though and is pretty much plastic safe.

Re: SE Manix 2 LW?

I agree with you Evil D. I do believe Sal knows how to run a business so I’ll leave that to him, as I’m still a young pup and staring down the barrel at potentially buying a business here in the near future, I’ve learned lots about that. BUT, it seems odd that a design that’s been around for severa...

Re: Open Back Construction

They kind of seem like interchangeable terms. You're not wrong to call a knife with pillar construction, an "open back knife." Although, it does get a little weird when you call an open back knife like the military, "pillar construction." It has a partial backspacer, but still has an open back for ...

The Hyunday Kona had to be renamed "Kauai" here in Portugal as the original name is a rough way to refer the female genitalia :rolleyes:
Oh man! I was gonna mention that exact situation with Kona mountain bikes but I didn’t because I couldn’t remember what country it was!

Re: Names of certain models - do they have any impact (on perception, sales, associations..);which names "fit" which don

This is one of the reasons the Siren has a slightly less obvious water reference. I designed both the waterway and the Siren to be all around outdoor knives. A lot of my outdoor use involves saltwater but a fair amount does not. I love my rustproof Waterway but I always wanted a tool steel version ...

Re: AEB-L vs 14C28N

I also like 12C27N in my Mora, and finding out that the Grasshopper has the same steel makes me want to give that model a try! I see on the spyderco site that it says that. I can’t remember what mine says, I have the whole family of the small SS handled slippys. I’ll have to take a peak but I could...

Re: Novice here in need of experts opinion on Lil' Native

I really like the knife and I've already ordered another Spyderco, a Manix II, different blade steel, handle, closing mechanism... Ooooh, that’s a good choice! I’m partial to the lightweight versions myself, but the Manix in any configuration is great! I love the CBBL (caged ball bearing lock), it ...
