Re: Not Enough Love for The Stretch

I'd love to see the Stretch 2 production moved to Golden; then given the Native 5 treatment of ditching the liners, and putting in metal thread inserts for the clip screws. This would really make sense for a Salt version with LC200N blade, but I'd be happy with an S30V blade and those changes.

Re: Your favorite Spyderco for fidgeting?

Domino and Dice. Frame lock makes for easy closing on top of the multiple opening methods the flipper and blade hole allow.

Re: What do you want to see more of from Spyderco?

I'd like to see more metal thread inserts for the clip screws like on the Native 5 LW and the CQI G10 Native 5. Every Spyderco I've owned or handled where the clip screws thread into thin steel liners has had a wobbly clip. The much thicker Ti liners under the G10/CF scale side of the Dice and Domin...

Re: Nut-based Milks and related foods: Your views on them?

SEF, almonds alone take tremendous water resources to grow. Making almond "milk", which is mostly water, takes even more water. Unless you're allergic to something in dairy, I'm not convinced there's any health benefit either. Cholesterol in food doesn't increase your blood cholesterol levels. High ...

Re: What is your favorite Delica Variation?

As radioactive's post with the Lynch Ti scales shows, the Delica should have a finger choil. The stock configuration wastes a lot of grip space. Further, every Delica I've handled, and indeed every Spyderco I've handled with clip screws that thread into the liner, has had a wobbly clip. Hence, I do...

Hi Mherodtx, ... we're starting to see some red models. Perhaps I'll suggest using a variation of red for some new exotic steel we find? sal My vote goes to red handled vanax salt series with black dlc hardware and clip. What say you?

Re: I want to buy one knife to last me ~10 years

Wait for an eBay coupon, stretch your budget a bit, and get a Dice. The Taichung, Taiwan Spydercos are the arguably better made than the US and Japanese models. Many of Spyderco's most expensive and most highly regarded knives are made in Taichung. The Dice has a blade under 3 inches, it deploys ver...

Re: Post your Massdrop Native Blue Box mailfind

Now I guess I'll wait on the Lil' Native and hope for a Sprint (CRUWEAR!...sorry ugaarguy if you are watching!) Actually, I'm kinda over the whole Cruwear thing on most knives. If we ever get a Vanax Spydie I have some more Salty design preferences I'd rather see it in. I've started another thread.

Vanax Blade Salt Folder?

The Salt Series knives have been incredibly popular. The Spydiechef's second run with the CQI ceramic detent ball sold out quickly a month or so ago. I love my 'chef, and getting near H1 corrosion resistance with near VG-10 performance in a plain edge is nothing short of awesome. But, Vanax, from wh...

Re: What is your favorite/most used lock type?

I like frame locks, but not liner locks. Frame locks can have a textured show side scale for grip, while the lock side scale stays smooth so it doesn't shred pockets when clipped to them. Frame locks also have a much thicker lock bar face, which gives more material to wear for durability, and a grea...

Re: Chaparral LW Exclusives and Sprints

I agree. The Chaparral, if sprinted, seems better suited to steels that will make the most of a thin geometry. Save the chunky steels for the heavy use knives. And whether a sprint or just another iteration, a micarta Chaparral must--must!--happen. Linen, or maybe denim. I had one of the original G...

Also the two polls you are referring to just happen to be two big beefy knives that a lot of people, myself included, want to see a tough beefy steel to match.
