If you dislike pocket wear don't get an Emerson wave.

Re: Spyderco Siren Release Date?

How is the "bias towards close" on everyone else's siren? Mine seems light for a lockback, I don't have anything to measure it definitively but it is surprisingly easy to flick open for a backlock and doesn't want to pull shut on itself until fairly close to the handle. Perhaps not the best way to d...

Re: Bladeops waved pm2 exclusive

Love the wave feature but dislike the PM2. Hope this sells so we continue to get more waved knives in the future. Seems like the crowd that buys and stores away all the new PM's for a new scale color are going to be pretty divided on this one.

Re: Spyderco Siren Release Date?

Well after a few days I still really like the Siren but I've been carrying combo edge or fully serrated knives so long now it's a little difficult to wrap my head around swapping back to plain edge for EDC (even my crucarta shaman didn't last long in pocket). First world problems I know. Maybe there...

Hi Toxic,

The best solution is to send it to us to modify. Where are you?

I was looking through old threads for DIY instructions but if this is a Spyderco service I definitely need to send in my Caribbean, the light detent is my only real complaint with the knife.

Re: Native chief vs Endura?

trick question. the correct answer is pacific salt se. :) Winner winner, chicken dinner. 😉 I don't like choils on anything larger than the Dragonfly at this point. It doesn't seem like any larger offering with one fits well when not using the choil and the cutting edge is unnecessarily distanced fr...

Re: yojimbo salt

Now that the Siren is enroute ... this would be a great next acquisition for the collection. I'm only a couple hundred meters from the ocean and I carry salt knives on the water, but just being outside working a couple hours in the summer I'm going to come home soaked in sweat. I'm all for the Yo2 i...

Re: LC200N / Caribbean SE torture test gauntlet of death

As much as I love this thread I wish we had more knives in serrated lc200n and another steel to directly compare. The native 5 is the only one that comes to mind.

Re: Caribbean love.

I would need to search for it, but Sal did write that the XL Caribbean project is on hold. Total bummer too! I would be okay with it if there were enough room. It is not as smooth a design with it, but I could live with it. The Military has it right. It keeps your hand from slipping backwards, but ...

Re: Spyderco serration history

For a long time I've been curious as to whether or not there might be newer serration patterns to be introduced at some point to try on some of the older and newer models. Personally I think the best overall Spyderco serration pattern I've found is my older AUS-8 ( 1990s era) Spyderco Catcherman mo...

Re: Knifeworks Exclusive Para 3, CTS-204P/Forrest Green G10

Well that was a disappointing start. Got the email last night, spent four hours circling back and hitting refresh on the site. Finally wrote it off as a bad April's fools joke and went to bed. Wake up to it being sold out. Their idea of available "now" is strange.

Re: Serration Disappointment

Not a fan of chisel grinds, so haven't really looked at enough of them to know, but how many knife companies making chisel ground plain edge folders make them ground "correctly" for right hand users? How many make chisel ground plain edge fixed blades that way? Customs may be a different story, but...
