Re: Getting a Native 5 - Which Steel?

I’m not a fan of the Native 5. I think the previous gen Native is better ergonomically. Unless you need the chunkier blade geometry I think the Chaparral is far better.

Re: I'm conflicted on next purchase...

Chaparral LW is almost always the best choice. Spyderco doesn’t make a better small EDC knife.

Re: Users, Collectors, and Social Media Madness

Most people own one pocket knife and did not spend $100 on it.

Re: Straight-spine Stretch

Re: people buying knives with their eyes, this is an unstoppable trend since knives are shifting with most other goods to online sales. Manufacturers just have to adapt. And reviews help a ton. I wish there were a few other Nick Shabazz types out there. Nick is great but he can’t review every knife ...

Re: Straight-spine Stretch

I’m confused... why would anyone want to add material to the Stretch blade to make a straight line? What effect does that have on using the knife?

Re: Ouroboros G10 polished and contoured

That turned out really cool. Is the Sliverax nested? If not it would be simple to make you’re own scales just by tracing it.

NO, it did not work well, and Super Steel Steve bent the beans out of it. It's garbage.
So what would change if Benchmade claimed it was 62 Rc? It’s still garbage.

Re: "HRC as advertised." Who is accurately listing HRC?

The last thing we need is an Rc arms race. I don’t have the faintest clue what Rc any of my Spyderco knives are. Somehow they all work great. Are you saying that you would be fine with a Benchmade folder in 3V with an HRC of 56? That is what started these discussions two weeks ago. Does it work wel...

The weird part is that nobody from Spyderco had ever commented on what is going on.
What do you want them to say? It’s past due. Likely there’s issues with the factory not producing up to their standards in some area.

Re: Stretch 2 SE

As far as I know the last SE Stretch version offered is now discontinued, which is a real shame because it's one of the best SE options available. Yes, long discontinued. I’ve got one and... I dunno, doesn’t stay in my pocket long. I know FFG SE is supposed to be amazing, but I think my lil matriar...

Re: Reverse S Dragonfly?

I am not sold on the reverse S design, but I might be missing something. Or, perhaps it is because it does not fit into my lifestyle. I don’t think there’s anything amazing to say about it. It’s a useful blade shape. It gets the job done. I don’t think a regular leaf shape can do anything the stubb...

Re: Reverse S Dragonfly?

Someone who finds this blade shape useful should make a video of its uses, so people like me could get some use out of them. It’s like a combo edge. Not enough of either edge. I’ve carried my reverse S Meerkat a bunch. Never found it to be a handicap. It’s less fiddly for starting cuts opening pack...
