Re: Sprint/Exclusive Deal Breakers

I really don't like coated blades myself, I have maybe 2 of those in my collection. Ditto. I do love the Purple/DLC combo from DLT and I will be getting the Autonomy 2 in SE. Other than a few specific cases, DLC will absolutely keep me from buying a Sprint. Other than that? A low hollow like on the...

Re: Thank you Sal for the pink Delica

Hah, I saw the DLC and immediately said, "Finally!"

I'm not excited about it in any way. But, you know that Pink/DLC version is going to sell like crazy. Every chick getting out of their Black/Pink Jeeps at the mall will have one.

SPY27 PM2 Question.

I can't help but like the Sprint PM2 in the latest reveal. Spyderco, America, SPY27 and it's really funky. What's not to love? Are we going to be able to get it for MAP or will OPFOCUS be the only available discount? (It's a shame that OPFOCUS doesn't include healthcare workers. My wife would buy a ...

Re: Function & Practicality Aspects of EDC

It really depends on what type of EDW that you do. When I was doing physical labor, my EDC was the Caribbean.

Now that my pace is a lot slower, my EDC is a Micro Dyad. The Caribbean and Ulize act as accoutrement, whereas the MD is part of the outfit.

Re: Reveal 6 Live!

Ouch!

So, the Atlantic Salt, Autonomy 2 SE, Birdseye Chap and maybe a Smallfly 2 because I'm weird. I was supposed to be dialing back my knife buying, not increasing it!

I bet that DLC Pink Delica is going to sell like gangbusters.

Re: Which spyderco is in the mail?

Well, it's official... I'm a junkie... I was ordering a service manual for my wife's Honda Fit and I happened upon another jigged bone Micro Dyad... The price was just too good to pass up. I almost bought a black pearl one for substantially more. But, as a user, I prefer the grip provided by the jig...

Re: what's best back pocket knife for doing stupid things?

As the title states I'm looking for something to throw in my back right pocket for cutting tasks I'm too afraid to do with my watu. Like dragging the edge along cinder blocks and stabbing robots. That recently announced cruwear delica with something like a 4x4 recluse clip would probably do it but ...

Found this in the mailbox a few minutes ago. It is quite large, for the design. But, atleast there's no more ugly clip! :D https://i.ibb.co/DwPFPfY/20200905-130128.jpg I can certainly understand the complaints about the hole and cutout.

Very tempted by something on there. But, as with BBS, $15 shipping on top of the already healthy pricing... ehhh!

Maybe. We'll see.

Re: POLL: Return of the SpyderSaw? Single bladed or as part of a Dyad?

Leave the Dyad alone. It's fine the way it is.

As for the Spydersaw, I would question how large the market is for it. Me, personally? I wouldn't have any use for one.

Re: What do you want in a new Salt knife?

As Lance mentioned, liners on a Salt create a multitude of problems. These are fairly new materials for the knife industry and we are certainly learning about them the hard way. You mentioned the Caribbean, First we had to take apart 4800 knives and replace the stainless ball bearings with ceramic ...

Re: knives that deserve an upgrade

Kiwi 4 - should have been more upscale from the beginning, even the standard ZDP and carbon fiber that so many Seki models got in the past would have been better. Even a simple all stainless version would have been fancier than plain black slabs of G10. Nilakka - though it did do a great job (I thi...
