C101PBL2 Manix 2 Blue Translucent - A review

The latest version of the Manix 2 is another in a long list of industry firsts for Spyderco, with the use of PolyOne’s Edgetek™ FRCP (Fiberglass Reinforced Co-Polymer) for the handle frame.

C157GTIP LionSpy - A review

Since this is the realm of the hypothetical ... how much would you pay for this knife? $300? $400? 500?

Hi Alex:

I apologize for spelling your name incorrectly. :o Apparently I pulled the spelling from Spyderco's 2011 Mid Year Supplement instead of my own database. Sorry. As my last name if often mis-spelled and regularly mis-pronounced so I know how you feel. ;)

CCF:

The blade length is 3 7/32” 82MM

C150GP Junior - REVIEW

Yesterday, UPS delivered a surprise from Sal, a C150GP Junior. As with previous designs from Alexandru Dionescu (Dialex), one expects dramatic profiles accompanying serious ergonomics, this knife is no exception. Inspired by his son’s request for his first pocket knife, Dionescu had safety in mind a...

Ankerson: What is the difference between 2nd and 3rd generation Powder Steel? Hey Sal; It would be interesting to have a Mule in both M390 and CTS 204P to see how Bohler and Carpenter tweaked their alloys, i.e. 2nd versus 3rd generation if you will. It would also be informative to see the complete s...

As the M390 is virtually identical to Carpenter CTS-204P are there any plans to use it in a future Mule or ClipIt?
