Re: If you could only have TWO Spyders...?

I think I'd go with my Stretch in peelply cf and zdp189, and something significantly smaller and lighter like a FRN Dragonfly.

Re: Dragonflies are like popcorn

I'm firmly in the popcorn camp as well, when it comes to Dragonflies. They carry as easy as pocket lint and have all the perfomance features many afi's like.

Re: Any interest in a Delica 4 FRN w/ VG-10 Black FFG PE blade?

That would not be for me, as I dislike any type of coated blade.

Re: Spyderco's GOLDEN OLDIES: Your Top 5??

If I keep it strictly to new designs that first came out between 1998 and 2004, that I have first-hand experience with, then this would be my top 5 of that era:
1) C65 Lum Chinese Folder
2) C69 Lil' Temperance
3) C75 Kiwi
4) C83 Persian
5) C70 ATR

Great thread idea!

Re: Collectors numbers?

I don't mind them too much, but given the choice will choose one without a number. One exception are a few knives I bought off a buddy who had a collector number, but that's more a nostalgia thing.

Re: Vintage Military

This one finally arrived today. Fully serrated ATS34 model circa 98. BNIB👍 Nicely centred, perfect lock up ( didn’t even need to adjust the eccentric pivot pin) and razor sharp. This one is like a chainsaw. That's funny, I think I still have that exact magazine. I love seeing these old millies. A M...

Re: Dragonfly Wharncliffe

wharncliffe-wise, I 'grew up' on that blade format with the Spyderco Kiwi. So this dragonfly is an easy decision for me. I find I use the larger Des Horn and even a Delica Wharnie a lot less than a smaller version like the Kiwi.

It happens once in a while, that looks like it would sharpen out easily.

Re: G10 UKPK officially makes a return! Heinnie Haynes Exclusive

Like the others noted, this knife has been given a cqi treatment. It's a great expression of the UKPK, I love mine! For one thing, I loved how easy it was to switch the clip for left-handed carry, this was a very tough on the first generation g10 UKPKs. Also, as an oldtimer, I love picking up a red-...

Re: Squared/Rectangular Handle Scales: Do you like them or not?

I need some ergonomic features in a handle design. A plain Sebenza is too flat and straight for my hands, but with a micarta/wood inlay they become great (for me). Spyderco usually puts in a few key ergonomic features, like the profile of a Sage 2 or the onlay of the Centofante Memory.

Re: corrosion on delica?

I've had some rust spots on vg10 blades over the years, but It's rare. Once I started storing a chamois right next to my knives, it stopped.

And the fluted cf Native 5, I hardly read any comment about it. I predict people are only going to realize how great this folder is when it's gone.

Re: Your Spyderco Drawer - Show & Tell

I have debated on a different type of case though as my stepdaughter is getting older and having friends over playing, I'd hate for any of them to wander into my workout/knife room and cut themselves thinking my knives are cool or something. I've been there and went with completely lockable cases w...

Re: What's your favorite Spyderco that's a little bit of a "hidden gem?"

There are plenty of these 'hidden gems' in Spyderco's history. Off the top of my head, the Temperance fixed blade.

Re: Ikuchi Notes and Suggestion Thread

I'd suggest seating the closed blade a wee bit deeper in the handle, so the upswept tip can't cut you when your fingers slide up the handle looking for the wheel to deploy the knife.

Re: Ikuchi - The New Kiwi?

I could definitely see the Ikuchi turn into a true gent's knife. But then I'd like to see a 'junior' of 'lil'' version of the Ikuchi, together with some fancier materials.

Re: What did you use your Spyderco for last?

Helping my youngest to open her birthday presents, the best kind of use I can think of! Even better if there was a knife in the package... :D (assuming she's old enough and likes knives! Anyway, happy birthday to her.. :) ) Thank you, no knives yet for gifts. I'd like to see her get a little older ...
