Re: 1st spiderco

A bit more expensive, but the back lock Manix 2 can still be had:

Both are great knives, the Manix is a notable step up in size from the Native.

Re: The best pocket knife ever

Just like the early reports on the Chaparral lw iirc...

Thin stock + stiff back lock = sore fingers for some. In my experience, both broke in just fine. No complaints at all on my pair.

Handle is just a touch shorter than the Urban, but the blade is 2mm longer.

Re: The best pocket knife ever

Until you remove the clip on the BH, you can never fully understand it's greatness. :cool: Ha, not sure why I haven't removed mine. Literally never use it. I'm a lefty though so at least it doesn't press into my palm in use. The Kiwi 4 is sweet as well. Still haven't figured out the Dragonfly. The ...

Re: Manbug and the Starling 2

Thanks all, I'm in. :)

Have a Meadowlark HB that I like a lot, but only started getting into the sub-2" blades recently and didn't know this was out there until a few days ago.

Re: Manbug and the Starling 2

Necro bump, but wondering if anyone else has feedback on the Starling 2 in general or vs. the Spyderco keychain knives? The g10 scales and BD1 steel look attractive to me in a tiny knife, plus it has a nice blade shape. The g10 Jester has me wanting another LBK in g10. If there was a g10 Ladybug I'd...

Re: Knife conscience

I went through a period when I bought some very cheap knives to practice regrinds and other mods on, think MTech. Should I feel bad that I actually like some of them now? :o

But otherwise, not really.

Re: Are sprint runs too small?

Never underestimate the power of scarcity, or even the illusion of it, to drive demand. (See: T.P. hoarding) Imo, dealers who commission their own exclusives shoud do whatever they want. Also, if an exclusive sells out in 15 minutes, that tells me they (Spyderco and the dealer) priced it waaay too l...

Re: My 1st Byrd - a Tern, colour me impressed!

Congrats! They are pretty nice. Had one briefly but ultimately gave it away since I have a lot of UKPKs. The HH UKPK has provided some relief, but I always thought it was a little odd that for years the Tern has been the only regular g10 slip joint option available in the whole lineup. Beats nothing...

No. Currently use a cheap nylon sheath I had on hand for one, the other fits in my kitchen knife block (but grabbed more often for general/utility use than kitchen use). 4. Yes. Not formal testing...

Is the handle exactly the same as an Urban?

No, the DK scales are roughly 3/16ths longer. The end is also more rounded like the UKPK (though wider) vs. the little point on the Urban.

Re: I ordered an SPY-DK. What can I expect?

Wasn’t there a planned slipjoint between the Urban and UKPK at one time? The Metropolitan or something. Yes, using the DK scales. That's exactly what I was alluding to. Iirc, there was concern about enough demand for another "tweener" sized slipjoint, but if the frn molds are already sitting there,...

Re: The best pocket knife ever

Tough crowd, but the Urban is definitely up there for me. Have 3 of them. The Maniago f&f issues may be a touch overblown. The spinning pivot can happen with the frn UKPK. I've had excessive loctite on knives from several factories. Grit/gunk in the pivot impeding normal function can be from manufac...

Re: I ordered an SPY-DK. What can I expect?

https://i.ibb.co/r4ZyWXx/2020-03-24-10-00-54.jpg I like mine. Can open it one-handed fairly easily, have just enough purchase on the small hole. Would love to see Spyderco get some more use out of the DK's frn molds with a leaf-shaped blade, even if was just a sprint or flash batch vs. regular prod...
