Re: What's Spyderco's Consensus Grail Knife?

I missed the CF S90V Shaman, which I was far more interested in than CruCarta Shaman. I also want a Slysz Bowie. There is no consensus.

I keep forgetting about that Siren is out now. The N5 Salt was the only Golden made Salt folder. I don't count the Autonomy because they're so heavily restricted.

Re: Should I get the Manix 2 LW and the UKPK or something else?

It's a bit over your budget, but the Native 5 Salt SE and a Sharpmaker. You've just got to experience a full SE knife that's been tuned up on a Sharpmaker. The Native 5 Salt combines that with essentially maintenance free materials that you can sweat on and play in the water with all summer with no...

Re: No Elmax Knives from Spyderco?

Elmax is made in Sweden by Uddeholm side of the Bohler-Uddeholm steel manufacturing conglomerate. Sal has said here that Spyderco likes to use steels from the region or country where the knives are made. Recent tariffs on unfinished steel imports into the US and other countries have made that prefer...

Re: coated lc200n?

I'd love a blacked out Native 5 Salt. I'd also love a black blade and lock bar to match the black hardware on the current Native 5 Salt. I'd also like unlined G10 versions of both of those.

Re: heavyweight salts?

I'd like to see more Ti frame lock Salts like the Spydiechef. I'm not enamored with the idea of sand and silt getting into a comp lock between the liners and the scales. I'd also like to see unlined G10 Salts. So, a reissue of the Sage 2 with LC200N blade, and a Native 5 G10 Salt would both make me ...

Re: Foiled again!

You need to track down a Warrior on secondary market - https://www.bladehq.com/item--Spyderco-Warrior-Knife-FB25PSBBK-5--8226. You should probably grab a Jump Master and an Aqua Salt in the mean time. Either the Matriarch or a the all black, full SE Pacific Salt 2 would be a good supplemental folder...

Re: What is Mini Bugout Equivalent for Spyderco?

If you want the Sage that's closest to the Bugout, I'd look at the Sage 3, for the bolt action lock. It's the closest lock to the Axis lock in Spyderco's line up (even closer than the CBBL). Sadly the Sage 3 has been discontinued twice, and both variants are climbing in price on the secondary market.

Re: What is Mini Bugout Equivalent for Spyderco?

The whole point to the Bugout is to be as lightweight as possible. That seems to have been a top design priority. The mini Bugout obviously is no different, just smaller. The first Spyderco that comes to mind would be the Dragonfly. It comes with a popular deep carry wire clip that works fine, howe...

Re: Strongest EDC Steel?

Something like a Tenacious LW would be a great low cost way to get a good quality knife with a decent steel that's easy to sharpen. The low cost means you can make mistakes and not worry so much. The Sharpmaker is a great sharpener that's quite easy to use. Another nice thing about steels like VG10 ...

Re: What is Mini Bugout Equivalent for Spyderco?

The responses here really show how much variety Spyderco offers. Chap LW, Sage 5 LW, Para 3 LW in BD1N with SPY-27 on the way; Native 5 LW in S30V with choice of black or pink handle, S110V, LC200N, Maxamet, and also SPY-27 soon, all with unique handle colors as standard production. Para 3 lw is rou...

Re: Strongest EDC Steel?

You are eventually going to have to sharpen if you use your knives. All the ones that you mentioned are good. Lc200n is all about corrosion resistance so it is not going to have the edge holding of s30v. If you just want a knife that stays sharp for a long time, then spyderco has production models ...

Nah, brah. It's not about the knife, it's about the STYLE, it's about the ART. When I say Lamborghini, will most people envision a Murciélago? A Huracán? A Trattori??? The marque brings to mind a sleek, low slung, mid-engine car with fancy doors. The exact model doesn't matter. When I say Spyderco,...
