Re: Name your best bang for your buck spydie readily available

ukpk in s110v and urban in k390 for me. For the quality of steel vs the cost, these are at the top of my list.

Re: 5 Spydercos I have never regretted buying

Here's my list. Not necessarily my favorites or most used - just no regrets with the purchase 1) spyderco nasa (proficient)- crazy expensive, but worth every cent to me 2) sprig - newest addition. Not sure why I waited 3) ukpk - s110v makes it perfect 4) urban in k390 5) lum tanto sprint honorable m...

Re: Official 2017 Mid-Year Supplement Discussion

Curious why there is no love for the blurple para3. Do you all like CF that much more, or do you like s90v over s110v? Or is it sprint vs production?

Re: Crazy deals @ Sierra and other places

So it appears that some of the reputable sellers have changed the category of their listings from sporting goods (which the promo code could be applied) to collectibles/knives (promo does not work). I had two Spydercos sitting in my cart from last night to which I know the promo worked. When I trie...

Re: Poll: What is your preferred stainless steel for EDC?

I voted XHP - for the assumed rhino, it would fit very well. That said, more people voted for 204p and that would make me happy as well. Very happy, actually. And we need way more in 204p. Not that there is anything wrong with s30v, but it seems many new knives released in "only s30v" or "only vg-10...

Re: Rhino

I am happy about the change. And it will save me some money...

Regardless of how much the new knife costs, it will be cheaper than the original rhino plus the sprint run for better materials.

It's a deal breaker if it's tip down...hear me Sal?
I don't think I want either side tip up or tip down. :eek:
Maybe swap out the hawkbill for a surgical coagulator. Could use the same battery and reattach all the little oopsies.

Re: Urban K390 in stock

I got mine in the mail today! This knife has great F&F. The back spring is pretty strong and it is hard to overcome the half stop with one finger. But, there is a greatly reduced risk that this knife will accidentally close on my fingers. I can't wait to start using it. It is already in my pocket. ...

Re: Urban K390 in stock

But, unfortunatly I was unenable to unscrew the pivot as the bolt on the other side was freely turning under my finger and don't know how to block it.I try to press my finger on it but I could feel it turning... All the other screws came easily but the one on the pivot's. Guess it's not so easy to ...

Re: Question about sprint runs and manufacturing/distribution

Thanks for the thoughts! The background is I ordered a k390 urban, loved it, and then ordered another one. My usual retailer was out the second time around, so I had to look elsewhere. I was wondering, for instance when the hap40 wharnie delica comes out, whether it makes sense just to order a coupl...

Question about sprint runs and manufacturing/distribution

I have had a nagging question about sprint runs. So an observation is that retailers will receive a batch of sprints, sell out, then receive another batch (sometimes). So the question is: Does Spyderco make an entire batch prior to shipping? For example, Sal has said there will be 1200 of the k390 u...

Re: UKPK thoughts. PIC HEAVY

Steve can not mod the newer UKPK or Urban models due to the way the springs are installed. He can however mod one of the older G10 UKPKs (if you can find one!) such as this Koa wood one he did for me with red G10 liners. :) Cheers, Radioactive :) http://i780.photobucket.com/albums/yy85/dnairradiato...

Re: Dodo Clips Are Awesome!

Yes - there seems to be at least two lengths of the wire clips - for both deep and regular carry. I swapped out my positron clip for the shorter dragonfly/ourobouros clip, and it took away (almost) all the hot spots caused by the original clip. Just like every knife fits in each of our hands a bit d...

I just received the Ouroboros, and used it for the past week as part of the passaround. Here are a few thoughts to share: The design: Stellar. Very clever packaging, very nice use of contours and negative space. My initial thoughts upon seeing the knife (besides "I want that") were that the blade le...

Re: Official Ouorboros Review and Give-A-Way Thread

One note, though: after putting some phosphor-bronze washers into the knife, it's become an entirely different and much more compelling (alchemical) beast for me. Can you post more info about this?
