I'd seriously buy a half dozen of these. This is my actual grail knife. Really hope this happens!
Right? I've yet to try an Endura, but the size is right about in my preferred range. It's a great color combo and you can't complain about the steel either. ;)

DLT Trading: will we see a OD/TiCN Cruwear Endura?

Who's with me on this?

I haven't bought any new knives for awhile now.

But an OD green FRN, TiCN coated CPM CRUWEAR blade Endura modeled off the recent Delica would break the spell. I would buy one instantly!

DLT, please tell us that an Endura is coming soon! :eek:

Re: Spyderco CQI Military washers size

Okay Alex

Phosphor bronze pivot washers:
Thickness: 0.26mm or 0.010"
OD: 12.72mm or 0.500"
ID: 5.84mm or 0.230"

Standoff:
Diameter: 5.07mm or 0.200"
Length: 4.23mm or 0.166"

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need any more measurements, while I have the knife disassembled.

Re: Spyderco Army Knife

Thanx for the memory trip. Eric, Gail and I have great respect for Leatherman and Victorinox. I pushed to get both of them into the Cutlery Hall of Fame. In fact, we look to Victorinox as kind of a mentor having kept the company alive and growing for so many years. The SpydeRench was a very effecti...

Re: Spyderco CQI Military washers size

It didn't occur to me that they even changed? Is the diameter of the pivot different or did they just switch to a double screw bushing? To be honest I don't know whether the are changed or not, but I'm almost sure the are. I don't have the older pre-CQI Millies to compare in person. I just want to ...

Re: Spyderco Army Knife

The ClipiTool series is Spyderco's answer to the question. Sal already stated in this ancient thread that Spyderco is not going to copy anyone, so no "me too" products. Having said that, I think a Spyderco blade with an opening hole on a Leatherman would sell out instantly. A lot of complications w...

Re: What Spyderco is in your pocket today??

I've been spoiled by my CRK Sebenza. I'm carrying my CPM REX 45 Military this morning and it almost doesn't feel like a serious tool anymore! :eek: Honestly, I still like this Military a lot, especially the steel. But I'm missing the level of build quality and construction of a CRK. Unfair compariso...

Re: HRC Database

Don't know how I forgot Larrin's excellent article on H-1. In the article he had a Spyderco Salt measured and found it to vary from about 55-57 HRC. Might want to add that to the list. Bump. I think this is important information. From Larrin's website: I was sent an analysis of H1 in a Spyderco Sal...

Re: Thoughts on one month carry challenge

I've posted out the "relationship" factor before and how rotating doesn't really give me that satisfaction. As I've said before, I'll never reminisce about the last time I took a knife out of the box and fondled it, I've got to really use it and create memories with it. The same old same old does g...

Thoughts on one month carry challenge

For the month of August, I wanted to do a one-knife carry challenge. I wanted to carry and use just one knife throughout the entire month. Having some difficulty in choosing which knife, I posted a poll and let you all decide for me. The Pacific Salt SE won. Now I had already done an exclusive carry...

I have zero interest in K390. I might find more interest in other Seki models.
You like CPM M4 don't you? What's not to like about K390?

Re: What "Other" is in your pocket???

Man, I gotta try a CRK. I know a guy who only buys Medfords and CRK because they are so smooth....... Yup, I'd like to try CRK as well as Grimsmo Norsemam. This is my only really high-end knife so I can't make comparisons, but it's hard for me to imagine anything being smoother than this CRK after ...
