Re: I should uh, probably get a Chaparral. Right?

The watu might be a tiny bit more slicey, but the Chap LW (FRN) is probably one of the nicer lockbacks you'll ever use. It's a supremely good value for the money.

Re: Wharncliffe's

I wouldn't be opposed to a SE yo2, but possibly with the less snag-prone serrations as popularized in several other threads here.

Re: Wharncliffe's

color me intrigued - the wharnie grind knives i've owned (yojimbo, rock jumper, swayback) have consistently great performance.

The asymmetrical grind sounds interesting. almost like a chef's knife with a concave on one side to help food release.

I recently purchased a blacked out yojimbo 2 on the secondary market that came like this.

Has anyone had any success with polishing something like this away?
i've seen this before on my DLC coated blades, in both s30v and 4v. It does come off with liquid Barkeeper's Friend cleaner.

The JM2 looks like a perfect truck knife. One of these days I'm going to break down and get one.

What I REALLY want to see is a Rock Salt 2 in LC200N. Make it heavier at the tip and maybe a bit bigger. The ultimate mini machete.

That would be SWEEET! :D
Been hoping for this as well...

Translucent green, LC200N, full screw construction, XL and regular sized runs.

Bet it'd be a home run.

Re: Spyderco's Designated "Beaters"

Shaman/Caribbean mostly, with Spyderhawk, tanto PM2, and maxamet manix coming into play for specific jobs. Then of course there's the stuff that has a very high chance of not just edge damage, but blade damage. Used a Resilience to cut free the bound up weeds/dirt/roots off a rototiller a few times....

Re: Fruitless search, it was right there the whole time

I think I'm the same way with the Shaman, at this point. I'd love it in additional configurations, but the pattern itself feels more at home in pocket and in hand than anything else I've tried.

Re: Webex with Sal and Eric?

I'm thinking stuff like Knifecenter's more recent video discussing the reveal would be nice. if not a live format, perhaps something where we could submit questions ahead of time?
