Re: Spyderco coffee mug

Whatever the design, I just hope they hold at least 15 ounces. :)

Sad. But trust me, the tile losing would have been even worse.

Re: PRICING

Your money, your choice as to how you spend it. Me, I don't see Sal and his family as greedy, so I assume prices are based on total costs plus a reasonable profit margin. I also know costs include more than just the cost of the material and labor it took to produce a knife in Golden or the price set...

Re: Make sure you disinfect

I may be in the minority here but, in my opinion, the real pandemic is a pandemic of fear. I'm not saying you should not practice good hygiene and take sensible precautions like washing hands and cleaning surfaces after handling raw meat. But you should have been taking those same precautions your e...

Re: Rare 1990 BLACK SEAL.

CASE CLOSED, as my friend Nick Shabazz would say. I was wiping it down fingerprints to box and store, and as soon as I wiped it wet from the alcohol on the microfiber, an image emerged. DEFINITELY a Navy Seal. https://www.instagram.com/p/CAQJaiIjOh-/?igshid=1vivxrl0tt1ow Crazy thing is - as soon as...

Re: Rare 1990 BLACK SEAL.

I do again appreciate the discourse. It does have patent markings & numbers (2 rows) along the flat portion of the clip. Lance Clinton indicated in the comments on my IG post that if the notch is uncoated/stainless (as is seen in the second photo), then the notch was made at Spyderco after the blac...

Re: Rare 1990 BLACK SEAL.

Perhaps it's my eyes, they've seen better days, or the fact that markings can be hard to see on a black knife, but I can't see any SEAL marking on that Police. TiNi coatings were done experimentally by Spyderco from fairly early on but the problem is, they were also done aftermarket by distributors...

Re: Spyderco Face Mask (now bandana, hat and patch)

If it’s any kind of an adjustable hat, sadly I’m out. If you take your adjustable hat or snap back and put it on the biggest/last size that is what fits my head, and it looks goofy as ****. Make a nice patch and I can put it any hat I want! Or you can make shopping bag with a Spyderco logo and I ca...

Re: Spyderco Face Mask (now bandana, hat and patch)

Hey Paul, What's a "knitted Jeep cap"? Lately, I've been wearing a baseball cap wit a leather strap that slides in a clamp to adjust size, It's been working well for me. I personally found that elastic straps are always putting pressure on my head which gives me a headache. I also need to adjust fo...

Re: What has become of Bladeforums?

Have to admit that I almost never post on BF anymore and the only place I visit regularly is Whine & Cheese, for about the same reason I visit the monkey house at the zoo, to watch the monkeys fling poo at one another.

Re: Spyderco Face Mask

I think it's time for a patch and a hat. So share your thoughts. sal Definitely would be in for one or more Spyderco morale patches, as I have several things I could put one on. Simple :spyder: design, with or without the Spyderco name, would be an obvious choice. "Bugged out" bread truck would be ...

Re: Two Decades of Great Spyderco Models: What's Your Fav?

Of those no longer in production, my favorites would be: Kiwi - love these little guys, have carried one almost every day for 17 years. The bolstered version is, in my opinion, the ultimate in functional jewelry. Stretch (original version) - ok, the steel and Kraton handle kinda sucked, but that cou...

Re: KOPA Revisited Maybe?

Doubt it will happen, since the all stainless Sprint has yet to sell out, but I wouldn't mind seeing a bolstered Kopa without a clip. As for scale material, black Micarta has been done already, but I'd be ok with brown canvas Micarta.

Re: Reveal 5 Live!

The SpyOpera seems like a continuation of the idea of the baby Jess Horn. Or perhaps a modern version of the Hunter or a scaled down Stretch. :) Hope this question is ok in this thread.

Re: Spyderco Knock-offs, "Replicas"and Fakes

I just purchased this used Civilian and am wondering if it is genuine. I don’t know if anyone can tell by these pictures but I would greatly appreciate any opinions. It was an eBay purchase from a reputable seller. It doesn’t have any paper work or pouch. I know I took a risk but what’s done is don...
