Re: Burnt Orange Rex 45

Nah, I treat my blades with respect, the only time I've had something bad happen to me chip-wise was when I dropped my Rat 1 in D2 on a concrete floor at work, got a nasty chip near the tip. I have an Opinel that I lend to coleagues at work, super sharp, 5 minutes later they have already dulled it,...

Re: Burnt Orange Rex 45

Anyone with the knowledge for making comparisons between this and S35VN? (I guess not this specifically but using Hap40 as an example) This metal is a bit of an unknown for me. Mostly interested in wear resistance and toughness info. REX 45 should cut longer, take a crisper edge better. Hold a poli...

Re: What do you want to see more of from Spyderco?

Since this turned into a wishlist of sorts, I need to ask for a Shaman in M390 flavor. Also, some quality of life improvements on the choil part of the blade that hits your finger as it falls shut from disengaging the lock. But yeah, M390 Shaman above everything, or maybe even Cru-Wear. Do we have a...

Re: What do you want to see more of from Spyderco?

Another run of the Para 3 in Cru-Wear or CST-XHP. Other than that, lower prices :D As for new products, I would love to see Spyderco's take on a new guided sharpening system. As nice as the Sharpmaker is, we all know that it's certainly not a reprofiling wonder. Modern steels from Spyderco keep gett...

Re: Native 5 Switches from S35VN to S30V

I think that one of the advantages this change gives to Spyderco is making certain sprint runs in that steel more desirable. From my point of view, when I think of future releases like the brown Para 3 in S35VN, they always feel a bit redundant to me. Having a perfectly good platform for S35VN in th...

Re: The Best Edge Steels

All of this Cru-Wear praise just makes me feel more disappointed that I didn't get the Para 3 Sprint before it vanished... Sal, throw us a bone here, is there any chance we will see another Cru-Wear run for that model?

Re: Which knife S110V

Para 3 is more fun for sure, but who cares If a workhorse is flickable or not anyway. In most of the time it just sits in our pocket, right? I care about fun! :p Seriously though, and this is my opinion of course, but I do feel like that's a point of interest when getting a knife, even a "for work ...

Re: First knife S110v - help me not screw it up.

Since we're on the topic of sharpening, I have a general question that haven't seen discussed that often: How do you know when you must to do a reprofile? Sure, the bevel gets wider with time, but are there other "tells"? Maybe some very noticeable difference in performance? I usually touch up my kn...

Re: S35VN Vs Maxamet on a Para 3, share your thoughts

Hi Mzen, It's a little tough to compare the merits of two steels that are so different from each other in nearly every possible way. That said, I can understand why you might have refined your choices down to these two. Here's a little info to help you choose... Maxamet is a carbon tool steel that ...

Hum, mind elaborating a bit on this part? I am certainly praying to the steel gods for a red G10 m390 Para 3, but I actually haven't heard of other people clamoring for it. My guess would be that most folks prefer the PM2 instead.

S35VN Vs Maxamet on a Para 3, share your thoughts

Long story short, I am really curious to give the Para 3 a go and want to hear the opinions of those who are not delicate towards their Maxamet blades. I have been using my S35VN Native 5 FRN and ZT 0220 at the warehouse for more then a year now. Cutting tasks are usually split between lots of plast...

Re: I'm already waiting for the Gray G10/Cruwear Shaman Sprint

If this was S35VN I would have already jumped in. Got myself a Native 5 and that thing is simply a pleasure to sharpen. Other than that I would love to try out some m390 or Cruwear, since I hear nothing but good things about those two. Also, I'm getting a little bored of black handles, so a bit of v...
