Re: The Advocate - An Official Statement from Spyderco

Beside the internal revamp it is probably way too early to ask/ expect an outside revamp. The knife has not been in the field for that long and not in as many numbers as could be, considering the current state, until it is re-issued.

Imagine the tires of a car riding on the road versus riding in ruts; the latter has more friction. I don't k...

Re: Mantra or Mantra 2?

Both the mantra and Mantra2 are FFG. So wouldn't it mean since the blade widths are different (and same thickness) that one (Mantra) will be thinner behind the edge and Mantra2 a little beefier behind the edge?
