Yea I know but I was hoping that it would be in VG-10, Super Blue sounds fun and I debated pre-ordering one but I prefer the minimal maintenance that VG-10 requires..

Re: VTOKU Sprint Run

The charts are nice but I wonder what that means for real world use.. What steel is it similar to? How does it hold an edge? Sharpen? Does it patina? I'm sure some of these answers are in the charts but I guess I don't know how to read them hah help me out SharpGuy!

Re: Native wishlist

If the "Native 6" had a deep carry wire clip and a compression lock it would be amazing!! I don't think it will go away from the back lock tho and you can always get an aftermarket deep carry clip for it..

Re: MAP policy change? 35%

I have found the exact opposite of this to be true. The vast majority of b&m stores I have visited carry some form of benchmade and very little Spyderco if at all. This is true here in most of the stores in Canada and I’ve also found it to be true with the majority of the stores I’ve visited in the...

Any hints on what the new steel will be for the Seki (L-M-D-D-S-E) family?? I want to eventually pick up a Dragonfly but don't want to miss out on a new steel if there is an option coming up soon!!!

What would you purchase?

If you had ~$100 to spend on Spyderco knives, what would you purchase? Would you put it all towards one knife and get something like a Manix or PM2 or would you spend it between a couple knives like a Dragonfly and Centofante? There are so many awesome models to choose from, How would you spend your...

Re: Something new is coming soon.

I don't understand why there's a Manix 2 lightweight but not a Paramilitary 2 lightweight. An FRN compression lock would be fantastic. Compression lock knives require double steel liners, therefore simply replacing G-10 with FRN wouldn't be such a great improvement. For me its not really an "improv...

Yes we can! Not trying to derail the thread, but of curiosity, what would be your choice for a Chaparral sprint?
