Re: Spyderco Supergold, Superblue ? VG10

I own all of them. The white steels are basic carbon steels like our 01, 1095 or 52100. The blue steels have a little more alloy (tungsten and vanadium) content so they have a little more wear resistance. We don’t really use their equivalents but 07 is an example. We need more knives in 07. Super Go...

So an upside down frame lock?
On the surface it does appear that way but the comp lock actually operates in a very different way. The force vectors are completely different and the comp lock works more like an axis/bolt/cbbl.

Re: How about a titanium compression frame lock?

There was a Salsa and the ATR and there was a fluted Ti Para2 with integral comp lock. I have a pic of it somewhere. Why an integral Para2 has never come to fruition is beyond me. I am sure it would sell well.

Re: Anyone prefer manual seats in a car?

I like power windows and power mirrors. I like heated mirrors too. I prefer manual seats and manual transmissions. I wish the back window of my truck was powered because it is a quad cab and I cannot reach it.

Re: Is it Time for a New Camo Pattern?

I am against the idea of a Camo pattern that requires paying a royalty. I am tired of paying big up charges for mossy oak and real tree.

I want the current Camo in other colors. A snow camp or blue camo would be cool.

Re: What "Other" is in your pocket???

I bought them both used for great prices. :) I definitely like my Bark Rivers. Many of their knives are too thick for me but the four that I have are all awesome knives with thin blades. I may pick up the Mini Kephart next. Life has been crazy hectic lately (but not too busy to buy knives that I don...

Re: What "Other" is in your pocket???

Hey Killer, I've been looking at the 5" 4V Bark River Kephart. I've not seen the Mountain Man but I'm interested now. 2.2mm blade stock is certainly appealing. :cool: Ha, I actually have the 5” Kephart as well. :cool: I will try to get a comparison pic for you soon. I also have the Wilderness Explo...

Re: What "Other" is in your pocket???

My new camp knife. Bark River Mountain Man. It is 5.5 inches of 2.2mm 3V with antique bone linen micarta and red liners. It has a thin grind, a swedge and some distal taper. Overall it is an insanely slicey knife for the camp site. I used it all weekend for all manners of camp chores and it performe...

Re: Spyderco Sticker Woes

I have a bunch of Spyderco round stickers. What I really want is another Camo sticker. I had the round Camo bug sticker on the back of my truck but after a few years of UV and road salt there wasn’t much left of it.

Re: POLL: Who´d like to see a knife along the lines of the Caribbean, but with a BACKLOCK?

There is a reason that Backlocks don’t usually have sharpened edge all the way to the handle. They usually use a kick on the ricasso to stop the blade from closing too far. The Centofante is an exception and if you squeeze the blade closed all the way it hits the backspacer which is tolerable becaus...

Well, this happened today. :D Been wanting a Native5LW in Cruwear for a long, long time. My well loved Maxamet blade works well in the smooth G10 handle too.

I’ve not heard of this. The only brown I knew of was the KC exclusive a while back.
Brown G10 and M390. A couple dealers have it listed as coming soon.

Re: Anyone else interested in a LW Native Chief?

I think the weight difference between the current linerless Chief and a possible frn Chief would mostly be in the backspacer. A G10 backspacer instead of the stainless one would get the current Chief even lighter. I like frn but I have really started to love the current linerless Natives and am look...
