Re: Dear Sal & Eric

That's really pretty. A little off topic, but I need to ask... Does the dye get into the material, or does it coat the outside of the surface? Do you need to start with a light color, and then make it darker? Can you bleach dye away if you want to start over? Can you bleach the original color away? ...

Re: 2020 Spyderco Product Guide

Pretty catalog, Kristi.
No need to send me a hard copy, though.
If I call you, though, the only thing I'll be asking you to send is knives.

Re: Southpaw - Lefty Question

Does anyone happen to have a current list of left handed Spyderco models that are popular? Hi, Matt. I'm left handed and have firm beliefs in what my knife needs to do, so maybe I can give you a couple things to consider. Foremost, my knife needs to be operated one handed. I'm often working on impo...

Re: Please Help Me Buy a Flashlight!

Generally, I'm a big fan of the Chicom flashlights that you can buy online for well under twenty bucks. UltraFire is a name that comes to mind. I like the single-mode versions that offer just off and on. I don't have time to screw around going clickey-clickety-clickety to get it to light up. They wo...

Re: 2020 reveal predictions?

I would expect Spyderco to fill some of the holes in their existing line-up. Specifically, to appease the 11% of the population that is left handed, we might see a new Shaman. Perhaps there will be a left-hander made of steel with a little panache, like Cru-Wear or K390.

Re: Which models did you initially dislike but then came around?

Which models did you initially dislike but then came around? Those weird looking Spyderco knives! From the first time I saw an advertisement decades ago, I never understood them. Then a year or two ago I wanted another Benchmade Axis Lock knife, but the company wasn't making anything that struck my...

Re: Sage 5.2

Before you go to sleep, let me plant this seed in your head: left handed, left handed, left handed.

Sage 5, Vanax, compression lock, left handed... that would indeed be a holy grail combination of features.

Re: Spyderco LC200N/H1 Kitchen Shears

Would any end line users ever, and I mean ever, actually sharpen their shears. Of course. Every pair of scissors in the house and shop have edges that exceed that of when they left the factory. Sharpening scissors is almost as much fun as sharpening knives, but it requires considerably more attenti...

Re: Sharpening Maxamet on the sharpmaker?

Is anyone successfully sharpening Maxamet on the Sharpmaker? Would love to hear thoughts, feedback, which stones you use, tips, etc. I don't use a Sharpmaker, but perhaps my limited Maxamet experience will be of value to you. At first I tried to aggressively reprofile the material with a couple ine...

Re: Folders for food prep?

They work in a pinch but when people talk about how great a 3” or 4” knife is in the kitchen it makes me think they don’t know how to use a kitchen knife. Yeah... I've used a folder to prepare food while backpacking in the remote wilderness or when cutting up something I've just harvested from the ...

Me and the woman have 3 Australian cattle dogs... Two border collies here. Chili, the older of the two, loves to herd the 18" inflatable ball around the yard. She brings it, we kick it out there, and she rounds it up and brings it back. She rarely tires. The game goes on infinitum. Brandy, the youn...
