Re: Straight Razor from Spyderco

A straight razor must be sharp out of the box - I have no doubt Spyderco cant do that. Second, I prefer a carbon steel (e.g. Maxamet) which gets really sharp. Carbon, rusting steels are sharper and easier to sharpen. I sharpened my straight razors and also get them professionally sharpened and still...

Re: Forum knife 2020 - steel poll

According Reveal 4 SPY27: Every knife made with this steel will also have a distinctive cobalt-blue handle color that hightlights its elite pedigree.

Cruwear point is taken...

Forum knife 2020 - steel poll

It seems that in the final poll we are choosing between
Shaman
UK Pen
Lil Native
and one secret contender :-)

Now, we should talk steel.
I selected these because of 20 in the name, S90V (obviously), or they were introduced in 2020.
Also 2 tool steels are included.

Looks cool, and I generally love to see more thinner-blade-stock knives!
Definitely.
A Para 3 TB (thin blade) would be awesome :D
Opinel has thinner blades and they also do to break or bend so easy... :/

Re: I Don't Get The "Spydie-Flick."

I prefer to spydieflick. It's more natural to me. I also have a more secure grip on the knife. With a thumb flick the knife lays not so secure in my hand. At the spydieflick you need to strech all 3 finger (middle, ring, pinky) not only the middle finger. You need to press more straight then sideway...

Re: Sal, can we please get a Para 3 lightweight in grey/maxamet please?

I want so use a Maxamet knife. To experience the steel and also to see how it sharpens.

I like variety and experience and diversity.

If it's only about need I never would have bought a Spyderco, because my first SAK would fulfill all my knife needs.
