Re: Rock Jumper comparison thread + general info

There is no secret that I love and carry my beloved SE wharnie Delica quite alot. One question for those who own both the SE wharnie Delica and the SE RJ and not only. What has the RJ to offer me over the Delica ? Longer handle ? Longer blade ? Hidden ricasso and edge all the way to the handle ? Do...

Re: Rock Jumper comparison thread + general info

Hi Tangent, Eric's long term plan is to make a Salt version of most popular models. sal Just saw this...that's awesome. Looking forward to it...each time I think "Spyderco can't improve on this..." and then Spyderco improves on it. The Rock Jumper feels great in the hand and is smooth as butter. I'...

Re: Will there be a satin (non DLC) SE Autonomy 2?

I would think this would be an easy addition, since they will be all set up to do the DLC version. Maybe they will just add it without an announcement. I would be torn though, because that DLC one looks so nice blacked out! Yeah I'm kinda ok either way, I just would like to know before I order. If ...

Re: The sad realization that I cannot live without choils...

That's a great angle. The pictures I looked at, appeared to have more of a ricasso. It is close and that knife might work for me. I still prefer being on a choil, but the Caribbean will now be a consideration. Thank you for the close-up. There is a teeny bit on a brand new knife but at least I can ...

Re: The sad realization that I cannot live without choils...

As close as the edge comes to the handle, there's still an exposed portion of unsharpened steel there, that will catch on things. From the factory there's a wee bit of unsharpened blade at the heel next to the handle, but at least that can be sharpened. There's nowhere for anything to snag on my Ca...

Re: The sad realization that I cannot live without choils...

Yeah, choils can be an issue with hard use, but if it's hard enough, I'll just grab my cheapo Condor fixed blade, and save my hand. This is another excuse for me to request a Shaman fixed blade........... without choil. I only want them on my folders anyway. Actually I was thinking about that earli...

Re: The sad realization that I cannot live without choils...

Choils just make more sense on some knives and less sense on others. I don't think I'd base this realization on how any of the Mantras feel unless you have really small/thin hands, because it's not quite a full grip handle for me so I definitely understand how it could feel like it needs a choil bec...

Re: H-1 Questions

The biggest advantage of SE H1 is unsurpassed sharpening to use ratio. I cut enough sandy crusted poly rope with my H1 knife that I have to use the knife like a saw to cut printer paper? Takes only a few minutes to restore an edge capable of shaving with the serrations using Sharpmaker and strop. A...

Re: Touching up serrations on the go?

I have yet to dull them so much in a single day that it was an issue, but I did carry the Goldenstone in my bag for a while. If I ever manage to break a Sharpmaker rod I'll hang onto the biggest piece for this reason.

I really hope Spyderco takes note of your modified sheepsfoot Caribbean. To my eyes it's the most beautiful and elegant wharncliff I've ever seen.


Thanks! I like it a lot. I'm just happy when they put out knives like this so I can tweak them how I want them.

Re: LC200N / Caribbean SE torture test gauntlet of death

Might have to follow in your footsteps. Did you do that by hand or with tools? I used a Dremel with a sanding barrel for the heavy steel removal (being careful not to overheat it) and then sandpaper for the final finish. It helps if you draw the profile you want on the blade with marker so you can ...

Re: LC200N / Caribbean SE torture test gauntlet of death

Evil D, since you own both, help me split the vote: Sheepfoot SE or Leaf SE and why? I'm slightly more interested in Sheepfoot SE since I already have the Tenacious SE. I'm a big fan of wharncliffes and sheepsfoots in general, but my favorite is being able to combine the two so I went got the sheep...

Put a lock on it and even a usable thumb hole and I'd buy a Pingo.
you can fit an aftermarket thumbstud in the hole and the partial forward choil holds the blade open. There you go :D



Eh, not a big thumb stud fan. It's the biggest reason I refuse to buy anything from CRK.

Bought one for my wife, it's her favorite color. I have to admit I kinda like it myself. I'm not much of a bright color guy but I could live with it.

Re: Vivi's M4 Manix XL DLC Corrosion Log

I think the only real issue you may have long term is if you manage to scratch through the DLC, the underlying steel can then rust. Edge degradation could be an issue but if you're using and sharpening the knife often you may never notice it enough to worry about it.

Ok so I've used it quite a bit now and I've got some feedback thoughts. 1. First up is the whole jimping thing. I can't speak for climbers (nor can I imagine what they would and wouldn't like) but it seems to me the only drawbacks from having jimping on the thumb ramp are 1) potentially damaging you...

Re: Please Pardon the shameful sales pitch - Rock Jumper

Any photo out there showing it closed, resting on the back so we can see the spine tip? Not sure what you mean....do you want to see the tip of the blade closed inside the handle? I think the opposite end from the tip. It does stick out from the scales but not annoying because of the scale design. ...
