Hi Brian, It's not beyond possibility. What steel do you think should be the "Standard" Mule team? Anyone else interested? sal Hi Sal: As I suggest in my original thread, VG-10 steel would be preferred, if you want to make the blade in Japan or Taiwan, or S30V, if you want to make it in Golden. Fro...

A sharpened pencil, knitting needle, or chop stick would be more effective. Do we allow any of those in schools or on airplanes? :eek:

Mule team standard

To all Mule Team members: I would like to put forth an idea regarding the development of a control or standardized model to be used in testing past, current and future Mule Team blade steels. I am seeking interest and opinions to encourage Spyderco to create a regular model for their line. Called th...

I've been anxiously waiting for this one, I love the size, and the design. I'm a bit concerned about the G-10 being smooth, however. Hopefully, this example is just a prototype, and the production version will have high quality (meaning highly textured, high traction) G-10. This beautiful knife is ...

Thanks, Brian, for the review. How would you compare this to the Schempp Khukuri? They seem to share similar blade angles although the Ulize is larger blade-wise and has thumb grooves. Hi Knifewing Although the overall angle is approximately the same, the Schempp Khurki angularity comes at the Spyd...

C161GP Ulize - a review

Arriving in yesterday’s UPS was another surprise from Sal, the C161GP Ulize, and a note from his secretary that said, “Sal says to ‘Enjoy’!” Although I had seen the Ulize prototype at several shows prior to receiving this production sample, I did not take the time to fully appreciate the long sleek ...

The hi-powered cutter is my ideal and the Temp 2 is just about perfect. It is my favorite fixed blade and a really nice design. I think it is a good crossover between light FBs like the original Temp and the sharpened prybar types. I have processed wood for a fire and batoned through 3-4" logs in t...

What would I change? Two things. I would enlarge the cutout for releasing the framelock as its small diameter somewhat impedes the hole when pushing the blade directly forward for easy opening (a small learning curve in dexterity). And, I would have a four position clip, which Spyderco has not, as y...

C158TIP Techno - a review

The long awaited C158TIP Techno by Polish knifemaker Marcin Slysz has finally arrived - at least an initial production sample. (Thanks, Sal!) This Euro-modern design has a very industrial look with its stonewashed finish and blue G-10 elevated spacer. For a relatively small knife, it fills the hand ...
