Re: Byrd Fixed Blade

How about a fixed blade hawkbill? Throw some textured g10 scales on it (some other color besides black please).

Re: Writing on the wall

It's amazing how using ethical business practices will get you farther than unethical ones. Most companies do not realise this.

Re: How many knives do you pack?

Usually 3. Usually one fixed blade (Ronin 2, 511 Tactical wharnecliff, or a Kabar Wharnestalker. The latter 2 are in custom leather sheaths). Usually a Microtech DOC or Tatanka in RF pocket. Typically one of the bug series on my keychain.

Re: Store won't be selling Spyderco Knives anymore?

I truly believe that the average shopper is only concerned with price these days. For example: the service department that I used to run, I intentionally went around and price shopped our competition. I shopped other dealerships as well as independent shops, and intentionally set my price lower than...

Re: The Mamba

I like the design a lot....... but lack of lock bar insert, and a price that is out of my range is going to keep me from purchasing one.

Re: Pink Roadie?

As long as it's 80s Hot Pink! I'm down for lime green as well. I have often wondered why Spyderco doesn't use more lime green.

Re: Let's talk about the Cast 440C used by the Serrata

I like mine a lot. It takes a really nice toothy edge. I believe the cast 440 has a larger grain structure that gives it these properties (if I remember correctly).
All in all a cool knife that does a lot of things well.

Re: 52100 steel

I can't really explain why, but I would rather have a carbon steel blade than stainless. They especially look good when they take on a natural patina.

Grow the Native in to a Chief.
Grow the BattleStation.

I am typically the one that says "I wish this had a longer blade", never I wish this knife had a shorter blade.

Re: New FRankenManix

The BD30p manix sprint was under appreciated in my opinion. I think the reason they don't sell is it looks too much like a regular model in pictures, yet if people saw them in person it would be a whole different story. The one I had looked like it carbon fiber scales in bright sunlight.

Re: Anyone pick up a Bradley Bowie yet?

Dan I carry fixed blades all the time. I just carry them on my belt. Pretty much all of them has been easily concealed by a untucked shirt. I prefer that the sheath have a rather low belt attachment, so that the whole knife sits higher up for the same reason Reject stated. If I do get a Bradley Bowi...
