Re: How many new Spyderco's have you purchased in 2014

I can account for 16 via online purchase histories. Three of those were byrds, and one of the byrds was a gift.

Re: Aus 8 Delica

Prices on these knives vary due to it being a discontinued item. I wouldn't say you overpaid. I've seen some go for more and some go for less. In the condition you described, I think the price you paid was in the right ballpark even if it's in the higher end of the ballpark. It is a great knife eith...

Re: military 2 ?????? Release?

As a bit of a lock junkie (not a full blown one thought), I'll be excited to see this one when it gets here. It's been dangling for so long though that I'm not anxiously awaiting it.

Re: Spyderco knife in movies

Point Of No Return was on and in the part where Harvey Keitel tries to kill Brigette Fonda, he whips out some sort of Spyderco. Sort of Delica sized but seemed to have Krayton inserts.

Re: Powerlock

The extra part changes the direction of force. Yes we tested it and it tested very well. We do have another design planned for the lock. Smaller model. sal In many conversations, smaller model is pretty self-explanatory; however, when the term smaller is used in relation to the Tatanka, it leaves m...

Re: Fake Spyderco sighting

Re: Joyce. Time to start a contest.

I think there is a problem with the time/date stamp Sal joined in 04'? I think that was V bulletin thing, when it was revamped in '04 every forum using it got reset to that start date. It's the same thing on some other forums I'm on. I'm pretty sure D is correct on this. A lot of us old timers have...

Re: What is your little big knife preference?

I think you have LBK's, like the Dodo and Dragonfly for example, and then you have just plain old little knives like the Ladybug. I think once you can get a full grip or close to all 4 fingers on a knife you're in a place that's unfair to also compare a Ladybug to. Another way to look at it is, wou...

Need an opinion

I have never seen or heard a peep about fake Delicas on the market, but the newest one I bought doesn't quite match my older ones, so I wanted to get an opinion from my brothers here. I recently bought a new D4 black handle FFG. I bought this knife from an online retailer that I consider reputable. ...

Re: New Delica 4 Tight

Thanks guys. I came to the quick realization that I'm just not use to the lockback system. Not sure I'm a fan but I'll get use to it. (Maybe) I went ahead and ordered a Manix 2 XL this morning. Been eyeing up either Manix for awhile now so, since I wasn't super happy with this one off the bat I had...

Re: Caly 3.5 discontinued?

I have this secret hope that the standard VG-10 version of this knife is moving to an FRN handle as some on this forum have requested to make it more affordable. I know that this is a pipe dream, but it's what I'm clinging to.
