When You Need a Fixed Blade and all You've Got is a Folder

I would choose the Spyderco Tuff! I'm visiting grandparents up on the farm and they had some work for me to do yesterday, which consisted of de-limbing some trees. I did not bring any fixed blades so I was left to do the work with my Tuff and CruWear Military. Didn't use the Millie though because it...

Re: Good or bad, biggest surprise of 2014?

Biggest surprise for me was finding a stash of Spyderco Kitchen knives tucked away in a gun shop and getting them for $20-$25 a piece. Got two of the Santoku, the Bread Knife, and Large Carving Knife. Definitely did not expect to find these knives hidden away a decade after being disco'd, and to get...

Re: I'll see your Spyderco and raise you another!

I've really moved towards smaller profile knives and it's hard to find those in Spydies. I'm with you Invective, 3" blades push my limit especially for EDC. Same! I've been carrying my S110V Forum Native a lot lately, but tbh my main EDC currently is an M4 Mini-Grip because it's so much narrower th...

Re: I'll see your Spyderco and raise you another!

What, no Q? I've been going through some knives and ran across a few oddities that aren't on the list, so here goes. I'll raise a Solo CE SO01PS. Ooh nice raise! I've been looking for a Micarta Solo for a while now but it seems they've all but dried up! Although I wouldn't mind a sprint, I just lov...

Re: How do I go about getting a Strider?

None of the SNG's or SMF's I've owned had rock lock. There was also no sign of poor QC like I've read about. I had a Dwyer custom in Rex 20 (M62), 3V SMF GG, (2) Z wear SNG, and PD#1 SMF. The Rock lock out of the bag story is not anything remotely like what I experienced. If you get one with rock l...

Re: JD's Top 10: In SPYDEREDGE only

Okay, my Top 10 SE would have to be 1. Native SE 440V. This also holds the distinction of being the only knife I own two of. 2. Military SE 440V 3. K01 Bread Knife MBS-26 4. MeerKat Reverse S SE AUS-6 5. Worker SE Gin-1 6. K03 Large Carving Knife MBS-26 7. K04 Utility Knife MBS-26 8. Snap-It Gin-1 9...

Re: I will now EDC only SE for 6 months.

I once did this for a week and didn't find myself missing PE at all. I was either carrying my SE MeerKat, SE Native, or the Millie and the Millie is enough of a knife that it can do anything. I would try to match your 6 month dedication but I just picked up an MSC PT and I've been dying to get one f...

Re: Help Me ID This Classic Spyderco

I actually liked the Clipit a little better. I don't know if those models were available in PE or not. All the ones I had of both models were all Spyderedged. Those are truly a mountain climbers dream knife for sure. Do you mean the Remote Release JD? Also nrockclimb I've got a G2 one as well and i...

Spyderco 4'' Kitchen Knives are Out!

Just noticed the 4'' Kitchen knives are up on the blade headquarters *winkwink*

$25 for them which is a steal of a deal! I will be waiting until after Christmas to order a pair since I just spent way too much money on another knife but thought I'd give y'all a headsup!

Re: Native 5 - Sudden Catastrophic Failure (Locking Mechanis

That is a very pertinent point. The best warranty service is irrelevant when I can't access it. One tends to assume that the best warranty only applies to the best product, as the maker has confidence it won't be called upon much, but such reputations are fragile, and often only as good as the last...

Re: PD-1 steel

I had an SMF in PD#1 and it was an amazing knife. Mine was uncoated and the only time I ever had any trouble with rust was after using it in the yard for an hour and then leaving it for an hour or two while in my workshop. The surface had some slight rusting/discolouration that came off easily with ...

Re: Native 5 - Sudden Catastrophic Failure (Locking Mechanis

- What would you more experienced Spyderco owners recommend be my best course of action given these circumstances? Like I said I've only collected Spyderco knives (and any pocket/folding knives) for close to 2 years. Never had a service issue before. What is the proper protocol for addressing an is...

Re: How do I go about getting a Strider?

I have only purchased a Strider from either local knife/gun shops or B/S/T sites but I've heard great things on USN about MonkeyEdge, KnifeArt, SteelAddiction, BlueLineGear, and TNK. I think KnifeArt still has the Grey Cerakote PD1 SnG's in stock, and GPK has some Orange Cerakote SnG's as well if yo...

Re: What do you hope to see in the catalog?

The Janisong is on my wishlist! I wish I could get one legally in the US, but I completely understand why they went this route of not allowing it here. Other than the Janisong and probably the Aqua Salt, I agree with Evil D, there's not much in there that piques my interest. Maybe the SzaboHawk but...
