Topic: Any word on the new Mule?
Replies: 26

I know I'd buy a few sets because I've got my Elmax sitting at home in a drawer itching to be used, but don't have access to my shop to put scales on! It does take some of the fun out of choosing the material and making the knife more 'yours' but I'd definitely use them initially to get a feel for ...

Replies: 35

I like to close mine slowly and deliberately. In years past when I did the flipping thing I managed to not get all of the skin out of the way one time. I wouldn't mind having a linerlock on the knife, but I get by OK with the current lock. I asked a few times prior to getting my knife and couldn't g...

My top 4 right now would be a Para 2, BM Leopard or mini-AFCK, BM 690-01, and the fourth might be something like the BM Adamas or BM 760. This list contains the Para 2 as a top user/slicer, the mini-AFCK as a slim EDC since the Para 2 is not really very slim, the BM 690-01 is a dressier EDC, and the...

Topic: Best Looking Spydercos
Replies: 72
Views: 8700

The way the holes are incorporated in the blades of most Spyderco designs makes them unconventional looking, compared to something like my old AFCK that has the hole lower in the blade. But in a case of "beauty is as beauty does" the most popular Spyderco's such as the Military and Para 2 function v...

You darn right they are still valued highly! In fact they are very hard to find right now and even used ones are selling for pretty good prices. I went back and forth about buying a standard black model or selling all my worldly possessions and buying the blue version. Well you can guess what happen...

You might contact JB Distributing (the place listed on the exclusives page). You might be able to go down the dealer list for that product and find someone willing to take a preorder. While preorders are never guaranteed IF you could secure one I would be inclined to buy another at a reasonable pri...

I don't believe I would start with a 60# bow, maybe buy something smaller to practice with. I started in archery with recurve bows before compounds were on the market. I was on the college archery team and we used olympic-style rules. Then compounds came out and I started in field archery. I really ...

I have a lot of lights but my most recent EDC lights are Fenix. I was carrying the Fenix P1 (single CR123) and it is very small, barely larger than the battery itself. It has good light output but it uses the original Lumileds LED and isn't as bright as the new ones with Cree LED's. I recently bough...

Would you (everyone) trade fewer sprints for having sprints in stock longer and no flipping? This would be better for me personally. There have been 5 PM2 sprints recently, I missed out on all of them. If there were fewer sprint runs but they were move available, maybe I would have had the opportun...

sprint runs of the Tenacious?

I've seen these announced on the exclusives page, but the release dates have already passed. The dealer selling the blue one has said "mid-April", but that too has passed and they even took it completely off of their website. The dealer for the other version is playing it safer and saying "soon in 2...

my new blue saber (M390 PM2)

I've been a knife collector for a long time but recent income problems kept me away. Something lured me back and I went off the deep end by buying this one. I already had 3 Spyderco's but now I have a big list of new ones I want. This one is working very well for EDC. http://i15.photobucket.com/albu...

I'm a new member here but I've been lurking for a long time, and I've been collecting knives for 20 years or more. I missed out on recent sprint runs because I took a break from knife forums for awhile. I come back, find out about sprint runs and naturally I want to get in on them. Well the orange o...
