Re: Best "work knives"?

i would agree with this assessment. i've found my manix 2 lw and se pac salt to be a perfect pairing to tackle pretty much anything i could ever need a knife for. with my growing love of se and the compression lock, i ordered a se caribbean sheepsfoot. the hope is it will marry my favorite parts of ...

Re: the great manix 2 wharny salt campaign

i'm all for a manix salt, but it seems like the caribbean sheepsfoot would fill this void quite nicely already.

Re: What do you want in a new Salt knife?

one of the current knives i'd really love to see in a salt version is the resilience. i understand that'll probably never happen, but the blade length and shape are so good for cutting up my kids' food and it would be awesome to have a similar blade in lc200n. i've also longed for a manix salt, but ...

Re: Oh Caribbean where art thou?

just got my se sheepsfoot caribbean in the mail and it's not a cqi version. that's pretty disappointing since i waited for a long time for the cqi to happen and for the knife to be restocked. i even ordered straight from the sfo to be sure it was a new version. now that i finally have one in hand, i...

enuff 2!!!

sal just dropped the bomb that they are working on an enuff 2 with a thinner stock and longer blade. as someone that's been watching this model and wanting one for a while, i'm excited about the prospect of a next gen model. what would you all like to see in the next evolution of the enuff? i have m...

Re: Spyderco Siren Observations

great write-up as always, vivi. i'll also echo the sentiment of being glad you're back again. i always find your reviews quite useful. the siren doesn't call to me personally, but i've said the same about the caribbean for two years and one is in the mail as we speak. i may end up with one of these ...

Re: I think I caught SE fever

It's partly a different SE pattern and partly how I sharpen them. This is that same Caribbean compared to my SE Military. https://hosting.photobucket.com/albums/ee275/EVIL85SSP/Knives/.highres/Screenshot_20191001-102807_Gallery_zps6newdit6.jpg that's some fine art right there. i'd love to have some...

Re: Please Pardon the shameful sales pitch - Rock Jumper

i prefer jimping on the thumb ramp for grip also. an spyderco's jimping is really a step above other manufacturers that i've used. most jimping on knives is useless or too abrasive. spyderco's is neither. i agree it's weird when it's absent from a folder unless there is a specific reason that is cle...

Re: Slim or none?

Ah my mistake, I don't know why I was thinking the Astute was made in Seki. I probably will get the base model soon. And I know the numerous calls for an upgraded Tenacious have gone unanswered. That's why I figured an upgraded Astute would be highly unlikely, but it's still fun to consider. And in...

Finally got around to getting the all black native lightweight pe after promising I would 2 years ago or whenever it was first released Image
the native salt should be available in this finish. i think it would be wildly popular.

Re: Please make an endura/pacific salt in lc200n

i'm pretty sure there is a photo of a prototype of a pac salt in ffg lc200n somewhere on this forum. i'm guessing sal is the only person in the world with the knife you're requesting.

Re: Demand and Supply of New Salt Series Knives?

i'm guessing the next new salt will be a para 3 lw salt in lc200n. we'll probably see a pm2 lw that eventually turns into a salt as well. personally, i'd love to see more lined g10 salts like the caribbean, but i'm sure it's more cost effective to use less lc200n like the para 3 lw will. i gave up w...

Re: The perceived need for instantaneous one hand operation has driven folding knife design into a dead end

Our ancestors always had the quickest knife to deploy - a fixed blade. Designed for extended use, high comfort and utility, there are thousands of fixed blade patterns for any number of applications. The fact that we have folders that can deploy as fast as a fixed blade is entirely in line with the...

Re: Idea for a complement to the sharpmaker

and... if the piece that snapped on to the existing base had molded triangle grooves like the underside of the sharpmaker has, you could lay four stones next to each other for a wider bench stone option.
