St Nick's does an exclusive- gone in 4 minutes and lots of angry forumites - bbs does one, and charges a few bucks more and it sits for a bit... Those combo deals are actually a decent value

Pakkawood Endura feels premium- but you pay the price too
Pakkawood is also barely wood - it's pretty much "wood micarta"

Re: SE performance is more than simply teeth vs no teeth.

How do you take damage out of a SE edge? (Are the corners on a cbn rod usable?) I bought, tried sharpening, and then sold a knife because I could not get rid of the rolled serrations.

Re: Unpopular Blade Steels That You Like?

BD1. It gets incredibly sharp effortlessly. Very high corrosion resistance. Edge holding is about even with VG10 for me. Works well at thin angles. Works well with both polished and toothy edges. Tough for a stainless. It's one of my favorite steels. I'd love to see more Spydercos in it. I know bd1...

Re: Sal - Plans re: Mantra 4?

The mantra 2 blade is (to me) almost kinda Phil Wilson-ish

A lot of people didn't like how awkward the grind was on the mantra 3 (the almost recurve, which I think was there to clear the compression lock release)

Re: To M4 or not to M4...

Is 4v, rex45, k390 significantly harder to sharpen than m4? I'm guessing diamond stones are a necessity. Does maxamet work as an alternative to the above mentioned steels - more accessible without chasing Sprint runs

I've only touched up m4, and am more used to simple steels.

Re: To M4 or not to M4...

I know everyone is going nuts over rex45 because it ran 67 hrc - but what's stopping m4 from being run that high? Do the components that allow it to be a hot work steel allow it to achieve a higher hardness?

Re: Community Sharpening Journal

Spyderco makes all three in 8 X2 Medium , Fine and Ultra Fine. I have both the medium and the fine but have held off on the UF because the two of these work so well. To answer the question yes I do use these stones I found it very useful taking the chips out of a Cold Steel Recon Tanto unscrupulous...

Re: Official 2020 Discontinued List

I disagree. If you are a collector, there is no better time to buy. A few years ago, the k2 got discontinued. They were sell for $100 I think. If you can find one now, they are like $300. Personally I really love some of the big collaboration knives but won’t get much actual pocket time. So this is...

Gpknives too

The mantra 2 is so unique among the Spyderco line for being actually low profile - so sleek, and that up turned drop point looks so useful like the Phil wilsons
