Re: Military 2. What exactly is going on?

I'm open to steel suggestions for a regular production Millie 2. sal Sal, I think that the market is saturated with S30V. In a knife at this price point, I think a higher end steel, or a different base stainless steel, would help sales tremendously. A change in handle material and/or color as stand...

Re: Micarta Shaman 2nd Sprint Run

I know lots of folks like the hassle and chase of sprints, but why not just make the Micarta and [high end steel] Shaman a regular production knife, like the S110V/Blurple ones. Demand is clearly through the roof, and it seems silly to keep a great material and great tool away from people who might...

Re: Is the Siren a Salt?

Why not grind and sharpen it all the way to the guard? There are a lot of cuts where it is useful to sort of wedge the item being cut between the guard and the end of the blade as you slice through it. This is one of the reasons I love the Tenacious and wish there were premium (Cru-Carta!) versions...

Re: College football is off and running

At least The Vols squeaked out a W. Dan, LSU really has something special this year. That being said, I'll always believe that if Bama were to win the rest of their schedule, then they too, should be in the playoff. Alabama is just flat out one of the top 4 teams in the Country. Now, a lot depends ...

Life is not complete without a Paramilitary 2.

Nothing smaller than that is worth owning -- except the Native 5.

This is absolute fact, and not just my opinion.
The PM2 feels weird in my hand. The sage 2 is a far superior knife. My facts are the real facts. Your alternate facts are fake news :p

Re: Is the Siren a Salt?

I love the overall concept, but what I’m afraid of is I wouldn’t like it because it looks like access to the spydiehole isn’t as open as it is on some other models. I think this is why I can’t warm up to the native. We added a fair bit of relief to the handle on the production model. The hole is st...

Re: Micarta Shaman 2nd Sprint Run

Ever feel like you can't come out on top no matter what you do? sal Sal, you have a tight rope to walk. How do you keep a high demand material available in a popular design to sustain future sales? Then, at the same time, how do you make limited runs of popular models, and do with materials that ha...

M4 or K390 would be great.
That would be a hard pass for me. The 2nd sprint run of the Micarta Shaman is probably going to be in a carbon steel too. I'm waiting for something from Spyderco in Micarta and a nice stainless steel.

Sal, Native 5 Trainer?

Sal, the Delica and Endura both have trainer variants available. The Native 5 family has had numerous variations, but no trainer. Is there any chance we can get that for this very popular model?

Serrated H1 would be a killer. I would have to get one. I would want an orange handle.
Dan, do I need to report you to the Crimson Tide Mafia for wanting a UT, Clemson, AU, and UF colored knife? :p

Re: First of Many and What's Next?

It all depends on you. Several popular knives like the Delica, and Paramilitary 2, just don't feel good in my hand. But the Native 5 and Sage series feel like they were made for my hand. It's probably worth a trip to a retail store on your region with a large variety of Spydercos so you can find wha...

They're just giving you edge angle options. 30 degrees at the tip or 90 degrees at the heel. :D

Re: Insistent First Impressions

Ouch, that should probably be a 2nd. The lack of stand-offs means its probably off my want list. Gonna be too heavy for me. Any chance you could do some side by side shots with a few more common models? I can do that. Sage 2, Native 5 LW, and Urban LW are probably the most common Spydies I have. I ...

By hideous blade grind, do you mean thick behind the edge?
I mean uneven, wavy, and inconsistent edges. There's also discoloration behind one edge that makes me think the blade got overheated during grinding.

Insistent First Impressions

It got my Insistent (along with a few other knives) today from the SFO, by way of UPS. Here's what I've learned in the few hours I've had it: It's a chunky boy - it's thick and heavy. There are no standoffs hidden in the back spacer, so that weight loss trick is a no-go. The blade grind is hideous. ...
