Re: The most reliable locking mechanism Spyderco uses?

I also don't understand why you almost never hear anything good said about the linerlock. It has to be one of the easiest and most intuitive locks to manipulate, it's strong and dependable, and unlike the backlock, it does not allow any vertical blade play. I carried a "cheap" ($25) Kershaw linerloc...

I've been talking with a few makers and it looks like I'll be getting my design made sometime between now and xmas!

This will be very interesting Vivi. I look forward to hearing more about it once you get the knife in hand.

Re: What Are You Reading ?

I am reading the Fellowship of the Ring. I have not read it since I was a teenager. I read it several times, back then. It is interesting to see where the movies diverged from the books. Excellent. I've read the Lord of the Rings trilogy probably 3 or 4 times. It's the only fantasy genre book(s) I ...

One of my personal favorites. Was hesitant about buying it for quite a while. So glad I did, something about this knife I just love!

Beautiful knife Tk. Bradley's blade designs are among my favorites; I'm carrying my Advocate right now.

Re: What did you use your Spyderco for last?

Been using my Native 5 Maxamet pretty hard the past few days, doing volunteer flood cleanup here in Beulaville, NC. Drywall, pex tubing, carpet, tar paper, insulation, etc. It's a good knife for the tough jobs. I'm not afraid to get it wet and filthy. And the Maxamet steel is about perfect for this ...

Re: It just takes the edge right off.

I'm actually surprised that the blade cut through the strap at all.

Re: Sal asks you to design a Spyderco.

Hmm...I would make a design based off of the Advocate. I'd make the handles partially lined G-10 with a bigger thumb hole cutout, and a linerlock after the Military style (or compression lock; either would be fine with me). Also, I'd either bring the blade edge down closer to the finger guard, or el...

Re: Larger version of the Paramilitary 2

So essentially, just a comp lock Military with a four-way pocket clip. I'll pass. I have never owned or used a compression lock knife, but I like the linerlock on the Military. Also, clip position doesn't bother me. Of course, the more knives the better, so if the idea of an XL Paramilitary 2 gains ...
