Re: Shaman Cru-Wear Sprint Run release ?

Alright, real talk time: who here is planning on using this knife as an honest to God user? I REALLY want one of these as a work knife, but between all the collectors and flippers out there, I feel like I'm a tiny minority. I'm pretty satisfied with my Hogue Ritter in M390, but I hate the disassembl...

Re: Lil Native slip joint?

I go every week wondering if I should create a new thread and figure out what's up with this model. Thanks for the bump everyone :) Sal or anyone involved, throw us a bone here please! Either to know if it was delayed or even canceled (doubtful, since slippies seem to be all the rage lately), it wou...

Re: seat belt cutting

Any serrated hawkbill shaped blade will make short work of that belt, you get a lot of power and leverage out of that type of knife. I am constantly amazed at how well my very cheap Byrd Hawkbill deals with all the rope and plastic wrapping I throw at it at work. Whatever you choose, I believe anyth...

Re: Musing on slipjoints...

I've already made my point clear when I've created the thread, but as they say... A picture is worth a thousand words: https://www.spyderco.com/pix/products/large/C127OR_L.jpg A CQI'ed version of this, made in Golden, BD1N and burnt orange G10 scales (like the ones on the recent REX45 sprints) makes...

Re: Which steel "spoiled" you?

For me, it was S90V. That stuff is the most balanced high carbide stainless I'm aware of. It holds an edge for a respectable amount of time and sharpens fairly easily. The aggressive edge it takes, combined with the ease of sharpening is what made me fall in love. This is literally the first time I...

Re: Musing on slipjoints...

The Pingo was a Vox design, and that other one discontinued in 2017 with all the holes (name escapes me) was also a collab. My brain isn't what it used to be... I actually own the Pingo and completely forgot it was a Vox/Ansø collab :eek: I would love if they got a hold of Jens Ansø and/or Jesper V...

Re: Musing on slipjoints...

I'd like less utilitarian and more fancy slipjoints. Less frn and g10. Do titanium, wood, etc. Do a slippie model like the chaparral. 52100, cruwear, 3v, m4. Call back to trasiditionals with non-stainless. Maybe some slipjoint collabs. Would kill for a Slysz slippie. I agree with most of what you'r...

Musing on slipjoints...

I'll just lay it all on the table... Spyderco did an incredible job on the newest red G10 UKPK sprint run. There is literally nothing I would change about it, not even the "boring" blade steel (yes folks, S30V works perfectly fine... shocking, I know). Between fit and finish, the G10 and the new CQI...

Never fear, Spyderco is here!. They are working on a 2.45" non-locking knife, from what I remember.

Hum... This is certainly news to me. If you don't mind me asking, where did you get that sweet piece of information from?

Re: The new REVEAL is out ! Hey Doc, our AEB-L Urban is coming !

There is a FB group I belong to that has a lot of members in the UK. Slipjoint Spydercos are very popular. I expect the new Urban, in a new steel choice, to be very popular. Shoot I'm not limited on the type of knife I carry & I find myself interested in the new Urban. I use to own one of the orang...

Re: Z-Cut Spyderco Food Prep Knife in BD1N!

Can anyone enlighten me on the particular uses or advantages of the bullnose plain edge version of these knives? The serrated one strikes me as a very effective bread knife (among other uses), but as for the other... Skinning and boning maybe?

Re: G10 UKPK officially makes a return! Heinnie Haynes Exclusive

They are screwed, but are the pivots D shaped? I have one Urban that simply refuses to be taken apart because of a free spinning pivot, but to be honest I haven't had much luck in that department when it comes to Spyderco knives made in Italy. My hope is, since this one comes from Golden, that maybe...

Hawkbill serrated blade + LC200N: Yay or nay?

I have been wondering lately about how much of an improvement it would be compared to your tried and true H1, particularly on a serrated Hawkbill style blade. So we are probably looking at improved edge retention, but maybe a bit less toughness and slightly more difficult to sharpen. I don't have an...

Re: Which Spyder folder is the toughest; will take the most abuse?

I've seen a couple of references to the Gayle Bradley 1... Is it considered superior compared to the Gayle Bradley 2? I never took the time to properly investigate the differences between them, outside of the obvious finger choil area.

Re: Figured out why I prefer g10 scales

As someone who used a ZT 0220 at work for quite some time, I can tell you from experience that titanium handles are definitely not the best option if you need to use a folding knife several times a day during harsher than normal conditions. First and foremost, it is more slippery than G10, so I did ...

If you don't have the diamond stones then by all means get them.
Aren't the CBN stones supposed to pretty much do the same job as the diamond ones? At least, all the info I've read on them lead me to believe that.

Re: REX45 + Sharpmaker: wise or foolish?

I’d say buy the knife you want. :) You obviously have enough skill to sharpen the knives you own so you won’t have any trouble sharpening anything else. Though I wouldn’t really want to reprofile anything with a SharpMaker alone and that’s only because I’m a little impatient and spoiled having an e...
