Re: My New Book is out

I just ordered the paperback for my wife. She's a huge scifi book collector and reviewer - something like 3000 books in her collection.

Re: Very convincing fake except for the box. USA made Delica 4 apparently lol

Interesting. The FRN looks right (although the image quality is poor and I wouldn't swear by it), and it has Sal's maker's mark. I wonder if that's actually the knife that you get with the fake box.

Re: I need some pen suggestions

The Fisher Space Pen seems like the obvious suggestion. They make models with better clips or no clips, capped or clickable.

Re: Fairly comprehensive list of Spyderos in movies, tv shows, etc

Yup, I think you've correctly identified it. It's a Tool Logic SL3. Knifeworks sells them for $23.95.

Re: Fairly comprehensive list of Spyderos in movies, tv shows, etc

I have a correction for the list. I happened to watch Terra Nova fairly recently, and the knife shown is not a Delica or Endura. It's some knockoff with an oval opening hole.

Re: Have I Gone Colorblind?

I picked up a Baldr Mini for my HK45 recently, but I agree with Olight that it's gunmetal grey. I was taking a look at the listing for the puffer jacket. I used to have a Vietnam-era M-1945 sleeping bag that was about the same color as their fatigue green (i.e., not green at all). LL Bean also an in...

This might be the first exclusive series where I actually try to collect each one, I like them so much.
Careful! That's a slippery slope! :)
Indeed. I committed myself to being Rex 45 complete in 2018...then Reveal 4 happened.

Seems like the Leek is to Kershaw what the Delica is to Spyderco. And the Delica has 4 different generations, each with a ton of color/blade/steel/handle material variations. Easily hundreds.
There are approximately 100 Delica SKUs, all generations included.

Re: New'ish addict......

It would be much simpler and cheaper to build a complete Endura collection. There are only about 50 SKUs. I can't say I share your fondness for the Leek, but I admire your dedication, and I'd love to see a pic of your collection.

Re: Spyderco Knock-offs, "Replicas"and Fakes

The knife is authentic. The style of the Seki ricasso stamps has changed a number of times. The FRN is correct, and only the newest Enduras have Sal's maker's mark like yours does. The maker's mark hasn't started appearing on counterfeits yet.

Re: Highest HRC for Spyderco

Here's the larger spreadsheet...

It looks like I remembered wrong on the softer Taichung M4. There's a GB2 that came back 63.1, and multiple M4 Mules (Golden manufactured) that all tested right around 61.

Re: Highest HRC for Spyderco

Rex 45 typically tests 66-67 with an occasional outlier. Golden M4 is about 63-65, but the Taichung stuff tested so far has been softer, in the 60-61 range. The 10V PM2s I've seen tested have mostly been in the 62-63.5 range, but BBB's came back 64.6. The K390 Police is around 64-65.5, but I think t...

Re: Would s110v family sale better w/o Blurple?

Blue used to be my favorite color when I was a kid. By the time I was in my mid-20s, I had developed positive associations with most other colors. I don't really care what color my knife scales are, as long as they don't look like something pumped out of a septic tank - the S90V burl G-10 Manix spri...
