Re: Spydiechef Rusted After First Use

Well car and house keys pretty much wont rust at all. At least not the ones I have had. But just about anything in a tackle box will. it's my understanding that even H1 will corrode Everything corrodes. ;) https://i.postimg.cc/FKdNWbRS/394-C3370-0-CC1-4-B35-8375-FA3025915-F2-C.jpg After about 5 year...

Re: Spydiechef Rusted After First Use

I was able to get staining on a lc200n muleteam, worse than any reports of lc200n knives ive seen. The mule teams may have had some issues though. Ive also seen rust looking spots on a caribbean but most scraped off with the fingernail. The other spots came off with a bit more elbow grease. Theres a...

I can’t imagine a better hawkbill than my SE Spyderhawk Salt.
Same here. Strong, light, perfect carry size.
It just occurred to me that with the pacific salt 2 starting next year, we could be getting a SpyderHawk 2 salt sometime in the near future.

Also the snap-it salt would be great if he just wants something to ride on the med bag.

Re: Spyderco for firefighter

I'm a firefighter and my most frequently carried Spyderco is a Pacific Salt, FWIW It's thin, light in pocket, impervious to rust, easy to sharpen, tough, has a strong tip, easy to use ambidextrous with or without gloves, and not too expensive if I lose or destroy it while on duty. I too am a firefi...

Re: Open Back Construction

Oh yeah. Completely forgot about the introvert. I always liked the design of it but I just never could see myself carrying it. Still no idea on the timeframe of standoff construction becoming commonplace. Certainly sometime between right now and spyderco pretty much setting the standard that most mo...

Re: Open Back Construction

I bet the true history of it would be hard to trace. There was probably some very old friction folder that might have had the handle carved out into an open design. It certainly got popular after people started deviating from lockbacks and slipjoints. There is a version of the sog twitch 2 that is a...

Re: Which Spyderco for prying with tip?

I got so caught up in the prying part of the question that I wasnt drawing the distinction of the with the tip part. As there can be a big difference between prying with the tip and prying with the entire blade and leveraging all that force through the handle. When I think prying with the tip my min...

Re: Which Spyderco for prying with tip?

To speak generally... while a knife is the wrong tool for the job if its going to happen theres a few common factors. A fixed blade will probably be better than a folder. Not always but alot of times yes. Thick blade stock is always going to help. What blade material matters as well. Will it bend or...

Re: Your toughest Spyderco Folder

Its really got me wondering now if any of you would draw a distinction between your toughest folder vs your most bulletproof folder. Given toughness is usually an independent factor when talking about a steel when compared to other factors of the steel. A 3v tank of a folder would probavly be toughe...

Re: Your toughest Spyderco

Ok I was about to ask about a scale swap for that native just to double check that there wasnt a cruwear version before the kc exclusive. I love the native 5 for just a grab and go and do everything knife. I also assume were talking folders here. I really want to say my regular shaman wins here. But...

Re: Native Chief in CRUWEAR???

I want to see g10 and lightweight versions of the native chief, native 5, and lil native. And I want them all to have salt versions in pe and se, along with multiple other steel options. From s30v to supersteels. I basically want the chief and lil native to eventually get the options of the native 5...

Re: Novice here in need of experts opinion on Lil' Native

Im not saying that there arent some lemons out there. Even by spyderco. But nothings perfect. I also feel some people can find a flaw in anything. Does it work as a tool, as it is supposed to? Also, your first folding knife is a USA made spyderco! Alot of us werent nearly that lucky. Maybe go buy a ...

Re: Any chance of a lil native lw salt?

Its been said that a lil native lightweight is being worked on. Forum search functions can be a pain. I usually find googling whatever your question is followed by the word forums will turn up good results. If a lil native salt were to happen it would probably be a lightweight variation. It makes se...

Ha. I just looked back and realized JD Spydo was the one to respond to me a couple days ago when I said that. Yeah I think its an interesting aspect.

Re: Spyderco Sheepsfoot Blades: Likes, Dislikes and Favorite Models?

I also didnt start this topic I was just trying to bring up the issue of a true sheepsfoot vs modified early on. I cant deny that my spydiechefs blade profile is a modified sheepsfoot. However given its belly, and the fact that the tip can still pierce something perpendicularly, I certainly cant cal...

Re: Spyderco Sheepsfoot Blades: Likes, Dislikes and Favorite Models?

I said at the beginning of the discussion that I was assuming true sheepsfoot blades and not the category of modified sheepsfoot blades. Although I do like both, where one would draw the line is always a grey area. I might even say the rock lobster is one, the picture of one earlier in the posts has...
