Re: Compression Lock Millie?

I’d be interested in a comp lock Millie if it had a tip up carry option and an upgraded steel. I have plenty of S30 V already.

Re: Why Didn't You Buy A Manix 2 Back Lock?

I prefer other locks. I just picked up a second Manix 2 w/G10 scales and S90V because I already had a LW with BD1. I rarely purchase any knives with back locks any more.

Re: Forum Knife Release Info!

Seems to be. I’m glad I don’t worry so much. My Credit Card company has been awesome at fraud protection and it hasn’t cost or hurt me at all.

Re: Do most of us need larger knives?

Most of my cutting needs could be handled by a small slip joint. I carry a large knife and a small knife for many reasons. Same as I often carry cash, though I don’t need it. Same as I drive an All Wheel drive car even in clement weather. My house has many more rooms than I “need”. The question is n...

Re: Which one should be next?

You need the Spydiechef. That will make you happy! Alas nothing lasts forever but that is a great knife/steel combo.

Re: What's your favorite big-big Spyderco?

Fluted Ti Millie, Blurple PM2, and Superleaf. The Superleaf is very underrated I think.

Re: Native 5 SE in S35VN

I have a question about a knife I just ordered. I didn’t do a lot of research before I pulled the trigger on a DLC Native 5 with the SE. A lot of 1sts for me... as in my 1st Spyderco with a SpyderEdge. And my 1st Native 5. And now that it’s ordered, I’m a little concerned about the combo. This will...

Re: LC200N or BD1N

I agree, if you have the pricing right. A Military in BD1N at that price would be a must buy. Is the steel that large a percentage of the cost/price of a knife? I know there are differences in the material and machining cost but would BD1N really be 30% cheaper?

Re: Ideal blade thickness for your EDC folder?

I think the Manix and PM2 are just right for longer heavier knives mine are FFG. I can use those knives for anything. I wouldn’t want to try some things with them though. A smaller, shorter blade (height and length) would be more useful for some tasks. In a smaller knife the DF2 and Chapparal are mu...

Re: LC200N or BD1N

I’m going to try BD1N soon. Like when a knife I want comes in that steel. I like BD1 and love S110V and ZDP 189. I like S35V better than S30V but I would rather have prices a little lower and have S30V than higher prices and better steel. S30V performance is very good for me and I like buying more n...

Re: Spyderco Seconds Sale 2018!

So if I arrive at 08:00 on Saturday how long might I have to wait to get in? Is there enough stuff to find good deals without camping out? I’m hopefully going to be there at 8:00 am.

Re: Spyderco knife rotation? How many?

The big knife. Right rear pocket usually is one of 2 Pm2’s, 2 Titanium Millie’s, a Spydiechef, or a Superleaf. The small knife, watch pocket is a DF2, a Chapparal, or one of several other brands. Today it’s the Chap and my S 110V PM2.

Re: ATR ™ 2

Thanks, I wish there was a local distributor so I could see how it feels in hand. The Cobra hood especially concerns me. I am sure that I would adjust to the feel pretty quick. I switch size, locks, etc. all the time and it’s not a problem. I feel better buying on line if I already have the same or ...

That’s excellent news! I am looking foreward to a front flipper. I have been eyeing one from a Chinese maker but that plan has been updated.

Re: ATR ™ 2

Anyone own both an older one and a newer one? How do they compare? I lusted after the original but never had the funds for one. I’m currently waiting on the Smock but the ATR2 is on my radar.
