I am in the process of filing my SPOT into a warnie, but I think I am keeping the "beak" on the end, not as stabby, but practical for my purposes. I also dipped the handles(I have 2) in plastidip.
I like the new prototype. Might not need the plastidip. Will certainly be on by buy list.

OK, I changed my mind, I vote for the SPOT. great little blade, capable of just about everything. Sheep friendly. But I also think I need to call NGK for a Yo.

urban survival = defence so the Civilian is perfect. Then carry a Cricket so you dont scare the sheep opening the mail!

NJ is not a good place to carry a Civilian, which is partly why I now live in NC. I think the Civilian is defensable to prevent death or grevious bodily harm. The Civilian was made for LEO and designed to be non lethal. My plan is to avoid trouble and stay out of court. I prefer the reach of this bl...

I wonder if the "finger grips" will be a part of the new design. I would rather see a handle which can be held comfortably edge in or edge out, doing away with the finger notches.

A centofante Pikal?

Picked this up from the good folks at Becks Cutlery. I was taken by the shape and the discussion of Pikal. I think this looks like it would make a good one.
Any one know anything about this knife? Name? when produced?
Thanks

Hello Chad, Terriffic review! I just picked up a blue one about 2 weeks ago. I never thought about the pressure point design of the blade. The is one well thought out blade. It looks like a Cricket on steriods! I am toying with the idea of cutting down the "tail" like one forumite did. Thanks again ...

Sal,Touring factorys

I arranged to tour many years ago of the Saco Defence factory in Maine where they make the M-60, M-2 and the auto grenade launcher. How AWESOME to see all the equipment and effort to build these weapons. Chrome plating vats, computer controlled barrel forge, fully automatic barrel straightning machi...

The knife that made you a Spydernut

Was the Native for me. I had a Eudura many years ago but never took to the funny hump for the hole, so the Native changed all that. Straight, smooth and sleek. This got me looking at other Spydies and visiting this forum. Owning Benchmades, Cold Steels and a few Sebenzas I feel that Spyderco is the ...

Mine is S30v, I recall a thread where Sal stated that lil temp was an evolving design IRRC, and they will tweak things each batch. Just curious what details have changed over the Temps lifespan. Cant find a way to improve mine.

Yes! Great idea, Sal. Love the warncliff blade. I was so taken by the Spot, I ordered another from the Specials section to back up my EDC. It aslo serves as a back up sheath as I am experimenting with belt mounting at different angles using a tec-loc. Its as sheep friendly as a fixed blade can be an...
