If the compression lock could be done with a single liner I'd love to see one on a G-10 Delica.

How about another update

While we're at it why not give this G-10 Delica a compression lock or even a ball-lock to update it even more.

Knife in checked bag.

I happen to know someone who works TSA and can tell you with absolute certainty that it is 100% legal to carry a knife in a checked bag. I have heard stories of knives being taken under the pretense of confiscating them although I've never experienced this personally and there have been no complaint...

I like the wire clip idea. I think it's a huge improvement over previous clip designs. I'm also all for the linerless idea but I wonder would the lockback work effectively with no liners?

If a I read your response right that's kind of the point. I'd like to see a new knife that takes the place of those older models but the idea I've suggested makes it the modification of a current model rather than the creation of something entirely new or the resurrection of a discontinued model.

New idea for the Delica...

Recently, I was thinking back about some of my favorite Spyderco models from days past. Two of those models come to mind more strongly than some of the others. They are the G-10 Rookie and G-10 Standard. Those were great knives. A very classic styling, great size, and the G-10 could stand up to anyt...

Personally I prefer small knives as well. My EDC's are either a Dragonfly or Delica. The only time I carry anything bigger is when I'm heading out on a camping trip and then I get out my Endura SS.

Definitely the Rescue. My best friend EDCs a 79mm Rescue and loves it. He likes having a non-threatening blade to use at work and it's been a dream according to him. Plus, the fact that you're using the serrated edge for heavier cutting it will help to have a blade that is thicker towards the tip li...

How about South Dakota. I can go to a local dealer and buy a butterfly knife or an auto. The only knife law we have here is that minors cannot carry butterfly knives.

Military or Para-military hands down. I love the Lil Temperance but in my opinion it's just not big enough for life or death survival needs.

Exactly, lock-tite will cure all of those problems with screws falling out. Never had that happen when I used lock-tite on the screw and kept it securely fastened in so that it was not loose.

Everyone's Favorite Spyderco?

I'm just looking to find out what Spyderco everyone carries as their EDC, and what makes that model their choice. Why is it so great. I personally love my old plain edge Rookie and keep it close at all times. I'd love to get another one in case anything happens to the first but haven't been able to ...

I wanna take my weight down to 200 from 250 and get in better shape. I also want to get all the new Spyderco's on my wish list. In case you're wondering the wish list is:

Spur
DoDo
Stretch
Matriarch and Civilian
and an ATR.

If I make it through this list by the end of the year I'll be happy.

That's great to hear Sal, if the decision is made to use adjustable pivots I'll be anxiously awaiting the release and will buy a new Endura and Delica at the first release.

Screws vs. Rivets

I've been thinking about this for awhile and finally decided to post about it on here. I love Spyderco. I don't go anywhere with out my Delica in pocket. I just gave my Dad a Cricket and my best friend a Salt for Christmas. One thing I've noticed about the lightweight Clipits is that after a couple ...

That's ridiculous. There's a huge difference between going to war and getting into a drunken fight on a college campus.
