Re: Long Live The Kiwi!

I was wondering when you'd weigh in and I completely agree with you. Specifically with the inlay, it is the greatest little thing ever. The SS I had initially was a bit too thin for me, but the inlay gives it just the right amount of flat real estate to open effortlessly. The flat edge is dead simp...

Re: Production LC200N

To me, the biggest advantage LC200N has over H-1 is that it can be full flat ground in a production knife. I'm really enjoying my Autonomy 2 and I'd love to see a PE FFG Autonomy 1. :) It may never happen, but LC200N at least makes it possible.

Re: Long Live The Kiwi!

Nice catch on the David Yellowhorse "Night Eagle", Sumdumguy. Not many of those were made. The Kiwi is one of my "top ten favorite" Spyderco models and the model I have the most versions of, both factory and custom. They are, IMHO, the epitome of functional jewelry and there's been one in my watch p...

Re: Would you pay up-front for a Forum knife?

I'd be happy to pay up front for any knife chosen as the next Spyderco Forum Knife. Model, materials, and cost don't enter into it for me. I have every Spyderco Forum knife offered, to date, and consider them to be display pieces and a sub-collection within my collection, so my normal prejudices vis...

UKPK, because it's both affordable and legal for Spyderco to ship anywhere.

Re: Breaking down boxes with Chaparral

They're incredible little knives. Sal had gifted me with a pre-production CF Chaparral shorty before I started packing up to move from NY to SC in 2011. I decided to use it as my go-to knife for packing. Cut all kinds of cardboard, everything from cereal box thin to the tri-wall stuff used for major...

Re: Sal,may I ask: Any plans to give the "regular" Stretch 2 the shorter choil and longer edge of the straight spine spr

Sorry Wartstein, but this sounds like much ado about nothing. To me, at least, a tenth of an inch of blade length more or less is not that big a deal.

Re: Philosophy of locks

I have an extremely strong preference for locking knives, simply because they generally require less effort to open and close than conventional slip-joint folders. Within that category, I have a very strong preference for Spyderco knives with midlocks. That's because the midlock is hand neutral and ...

Re: Liner Lock Failure??

I am kind of wondering who has had a Spyderco liner lock fail on them without intentional abuse/misuse? I have used a Military and a GB1 pretty heavily without any kind of stress that I felt would even kind of cause lock failure. I don't use a liner lock if I am doing something that is obviously go...

Re: Change in price of Spydercos in 2020?

Reading through just some of that thread, I can't believe the number of people saying "I love Spyderco, fully support the brand and it's the best, but I won't support it the prices keep going up." Reality is that most Spydercos are a steal for the value they provide. How are you going to espouse yo...

Re: The pronunciation of "Bowie"

I never knew! Boo-ee... I’ll need to get used to that. Bow-ee as in bow and arrow? Bow-ee as in bough/bow of a tree? I’ve heard them both for the late, great musician. I've heard the knife and its original owner's name prounouced Boo-ee and Bow-ee as in bow arrow or beau, but can't recall ever hear...

Re: Autonomy 2 SE DLC pre-purchase questions

Hi Autonomy 2 Owners, As the title states looking to buy one the black DLC serrated model. I would like to ask those of you who own this knife if you have experienced any blade play or lock rock when deployed, I really detest lock rock yet tolerate it in many models but not for a $240.00 purchase. ...

Spyderco has a couple and some Spyderco dealers carry them. Then there's eBay, just look for "lanyard for knife" or a similar term there.

Re: Former "standard steels"

To the best of my knowledge AUS-8 and GIN-1, which Spyderco originally marked as G-2, were the first two steels Spyderco used. Next was probably MBS-26 in the Kitchen Sharps followed by ATS-34 in some of the higher end collaboration models like the C15 and C19 Terzuolas, the C22 Walker, and the C27 ...

Re: The pronunciation of "Bowie"

Yes indeed, and that's my part of the country, but strangely enough I've heard lots of people refer to a "bow-ee knife." I don't really like correcting people on things like that because it makes me feel pedantic, but it still strikes me as weird. The way I see it, between Bow-ee and Boo-wee there'...
