Re: ZDP-189 vs. HAP40?

I prefer ZDP, personally. Never had chipping or breaking issues, but I only use knives as knoves, Not as screw drivers or prybars. Your use and mileage may vary. If you want a good premium feeling steel, then HAP40 is a great way to go. If you want a true Supersteel that will impress you with its ed...

Re: native salt!

I personally got disappointed in this model.
The knife handle is too blocky with hot-spots where it terminates by the blade (4 protruding corners), and it makes it nearly impossible to grab very tightly without regretting it.

A contoured handle would transform this knife to an absolute gem..!

Re: Never had this happen before, help

That’s exactly why I’m a huge advocate for burr-minimization. When you’re novice, it’s easy to create a huge wire over your edge and get frustrated with your sharpening progress, thus continuing to raise more burr and this make it more difficult to get a clean edge at the apex. Now, there’s much sai...

I own the larger utility knife as well as the Santoku from this same collection, and these two are my favourite kitchen knife pairing of all times!

Re: Spydiechef vs Kapara

Both great knives, with the Chef having the better steel (even though I don't mind S30V). The OP asked to exclude talk of materials, and give feedback on design, mostly. In that regard, there're a few points I'd like to make. Firstly, the Chef is a heavier knife, with a much more understated design ...

Re: Some things I would like to see from Spyderco ... you?

Would love to see more Lc200N models. Full flat ground LC200N Wharnnies from the sale line would be great! More slipjoints are welcome. Especially with new, exciting and experimental steels. Way cheaper to buy into a slipjoint with fancy steel vs. other models with fancy steel. More kitchen knives!!...

Re: Future plans for the UKPK?

A Salt version would be amazing, as long as it uses LC200N. I love the steel and the UKPK so it is a no brained for me.

Maxamet would be a great option since it’d be on the affordable side of Maxamet folders (even for Spyderco).

Please keep it as a leafshape.

Re: UKPK Spring design and wearing point

Hi RazorSharp, We've not had problems with that part of the spring. We've also tried a variety of different materials, heat treats and grinds on the spring. Always trying to improve. It's a new concept and like many new concepts, there is an evolution to refinement. I'm sure if you have a problem, ...

Re: UKPK Spring design and wearing point

I've heard of one broken spring but it seems extremely rare. Personally not worried about it and confident Spyderco would take care of it if the spring ever failed. I typically also close the UKPK with my index finger on the spine as you described. Here is the thread: //forum.spyderco.com/viewtopic...

UKPK Spring design and wearing point

Hi all, I recently noticed that there's a slight polished indent point on the inside of my S110V UKPK's spring where the tang/choil hits it during closing. Now, it usually isn't an issue with a typical traditional knife, and is quite common because the kick hits the inside of a traditional knife's s...

I personally think that anything can be used for SD if one has the knowledge or the motivation to use it as such. A fork, a glass bottle, a stick, frying pan and many more objects as these could possibly increase one's chances to defend himself in a bad situation. Yet, it only increases one's chance...

Hi Vassili. We're not likely to switch "all production" to any one steel. I like the different flavors available. We have 5 or 6 more Carpenter steels to "play with". We are also loyal to Crucible. They make excellent product and they've always been good to work with. sal Can you please name a coup...

When nozh stated it's the best steel, it only means best for him, or from his personal experience. Stating it, even if it's not a well known fact, should not be followed by the load of doubting posts, and people claiming they want a full report regarding the tests which were executed...

Gee, so much nut-cracking just coz a guy said he loves this steel, and that he has foundations to do so.

I really think that with introducing Craig as Bond, they changed the whole game up.

He gets hurt, he makes mistakes, and is more human th...

+1 for the H-1!
I'd love to see an H-1 EDC fixed blade. Something along the lines of a Swick or rather a StreetBeat would be AWESOME!!
A heavy use H-1 folder would be great too. An H-1 ParaMilitary would be great, especially in a 4mm stock.
H-1 Lava would be cute, also.

I created some scales from CF for my lava. Then used epoxy to stick it on top of the SS handle. Looks pretty nice. Yet the job was nothing fancy, just a quicky cuz I hated the SS handle.
