Re: Official 2020 Discontinued List

Q Ball looked so underrated
Mantra 2 was one of the rare slim profile spydercos

I thought the junction was already discontinued along with the stepped ti chaparrals?

Re: Reveal 3 Released!

How comfortably will the counter puppies cut on a board? Will the legs bang into the cutting board before the heel does?

Re: oH tHe TiP iS ToO FrAGilE

As a sloppy sharpener, I have no idea how to keep tops pointy - any tips? I only use the flats on the sharpmaker, but having a rough time getting the tip done. Same with freehanding, I end up over compensating for the curve and rounding the tip When big brown bear stabbed the steel and other stuff ...

Re: A resurrected lower cost One-Eyed Jack, please

Would getting rid of the inlays alone make it a better seller? - the file work kinda help makes it a truer barr knife

Re: New releases on the App

7c17mov on the counter puppies? I guess it's more corrosion resistant than 8cr?

Do the legs get in the way of cutting board work?

Re: Ladybug VG10 FFG

Hi T-Mac, The Ladybug is pretty thin stock for a FFG for the masses, in my opinion. I designed the Manbug with a thicker stock to be the FFG Ladybug. ZDP is an exception, but, again, in my opinion, folks buying ZDP are more conscious of the limitations. sal The zdp manbug is thinner than the others?

Re: Zdp-189 myths and truths

How would zdp be as my first supersteel? Still practicing on my sharpening technique, but from what everyone has said, it responds well to most abrasives, unlike the vanadium carbide heavy stuff?

How do you keep the tips pointy? I bought a beat up delica and accidentally went too steep, and thickened the bevel

Re: S30v

S30V is simply a B— to a B+ in all categories, which makes for a good all around steel but doesn't "wow" people who are really into knives. We buy knives for a purpose in mind, and we're usually looking for a blade steel that excels highly in 1-2 categories. Best edge retention? Not s30v. Best corr...

You could try and hunt down a used g10 one (in vg 10)

Caly 3 also came in g10 and hap40, and less commonly superblue

Re: Best knife design and steel pairings?

I do appreciate that overall, Spyderco doesn't have any drastic "mismatches" - certainly nothing like BM's minimalist folder turned "hard use" with 3v
