Re: Mourning for the brick and mortar stores

I'm in Canada and am fortunate to have a great knife shop within an hour drive from me. Tremendous variety and stock levels and customer service has always been great. I only order online if it is an exclusive I really want that this store of course won't get.

Re: Endela-thread

I went to my local knife store today as I saw they got stock on the Endela a week or so back. Went in with the full intentions of coming home with one but I left empty handed. I just couldn't fall in love with it. Can't say exactly why. Didnt feel right in my hands. I will say it was typical Seki o...

Re: Everyday Spyders You Use For Culinary/Food Uses?

I have a Spyderco model folder in my pocket any time I'm wearing pants! However, if in my kitchen I always grab a kitchen knife. I have various types and sizes of quality steel Japanese kitchen knives. Most of which are very thin "lasers". I just don't see the 3" or so folder (what I usually carry) ...

It looks like an interesting knife but I wish it was longer. With a edge length of only around 4.3" it is going to have to be a small loaf.

Re: Para 3 lightweight

I picked up one of these in plain edge at a brick and mortar store close to me here in Canada this morning. They got stock in on Tuesday. I handled one for quite a while before I decided to purchase it. I have 4 G10 versions in different steels so I didn't really need it and It certainly wasn't inst...

Re: CTS-BD1N Where does it fit in?

Waiting for my Dremel router table to come in so I can shave the excessive plastic off my Wicked Edge pro 3 paddles as it gets in the way of sharpening many of my spyderco's where the blade becomes the Ricasso and finger choil, then I am going to drop the Para3LW down to around 13 degrees per side ...

Re: Para 3 lightweight

I have 4 different G10 Para 3 models and they are my favourite models right now. I am going to first go to a brick and mortar store and handle a lightweight before I commit. I'm worried it may feel tip heavy. I really enjoy the balance of the G10 versions.

Re: Favorite Steels

CPM M4 is my reference steel right now for all around edge, toughness, ease of sharpening. I just recently got something in Cru-wear and am so far impressed with it as an all around good steel. Pretty hard to beat Maxamet in working edge retention although I certainly find it harder to sharpen than ...

Re: Reputable Online Retailer Sugestions and Experiences Good or Bad

I'm not too far in Canada from SRKnives which is a good brick and mortar place. Their stock levels is typically pretty good.
Online ordering I've used BladeHQ and National Knives. Good experiences from both.

Re: Fixed Blade Friday!

Since we have a Throwback Thursday (I'm too new to participate :( :D ) how about a day where a fixed Spydie gets thrown into the mix? I've tried most days to carry a mule with me along with a variant of para3 or the occasional DF2. I'd love to hear some fixed blade stories from you all. With all th...

Re: Help me decide which spydie to buy next

If you want thinner blade stock, a real slicer then the Chap LW. Thicker blade stock same as your Paramilitary, then get the Para 3 LW which is expected to be out soon.

Re: More on new Spyderco Light Weights: Let's discuss!

OK, I just have to speak my mind. I am not into this lightweight thing at all. Not even a little bit. Of the umpteen Spyderco knives I have, there is one lightweight, a Native 5 Maxamet that I bought mostly because of the steel, but also I sort of caved in to see what an FRN blade is like. Give me ...

Re: Native 5 Maxamet

I've sharpened my Manix lw in Maxamet once. I haven't done my Para3 in Maxamet yet. For me it was a lot of work setting my bevel to 15 dps. It was more like 16 or 17 from the factory but I didn't actually measure it. I use a Wicked Edge system. My knives range currently from S30v, VG10, Superblue, R...
