Re: Military 2

A couple years ago I would have championed a Comp lock on the Millie, but no longer. Besides my original worker, the Millie has been my most carried Spyderco. I like it just the way it is. Just want it in the MagnaCarta edition.

Re: Sharpening Sprints and Exclusives

Well after that intense sharpening I’ve used the Shaman daily including ye olde cardboard box duty. With 4 kids and 2 dogs you can imagine how much stuff is deleivered to the house in cardboard! :rolleyes: So this latest story speaks to the toughness of this knife. This morning before work, with “he...

Re: s35vn from china

Such a good looking design. Actually this is what caught my eye when I joined here and before I ultimately bought a BHQ Para3 as my “return to Spyderco” knife. Would love to try a US made version of the design someday.

Re: Military 2

Also something to keep in mind is that a compression lock is really a liner lock that's flipped upside down? :) Not quite. The compression lock bar also provides an interference fit with the stop pin such that when the blade is subjected to a closing force, the blade’s lock ramp pushes the lock bar...

Re: What Spyderco is in your pocket today??

Haha, I love the Casio squares. I’ve got the same one, Connor. Reminds me of the original my dad had when I was a youngun. If you think knives are expensive, the watch rabbithole is wide and deep! I can’t afford to dabble much in that realm.

Re: Sharpening Sprints and Exclusives

The sprints are for the most part the best Spyderco has to offer. I only have a couple base models, and I’ve since decided to focus on sprints and exclusives only. Of course, if MagnaCut became the “base steel” I’d be more than content with it! Notable exceptions are the Salts, as while they are pro...

Re: About that food prep ...

I’m interested in the Japanese style, and I’d love to try a harder thinner knife. Most of my veg prep is push cutting and chopping. I only draw cut things like bell peppers after they’ve been quartered and de-seeded. Tomatoes I cut either direction but less pressure... are these thin hard edges desi...

Re: MT29P - Mule Team Featuring Z-Max PM Release Info!

Man I’m really in the fence on this one. Cruwear/Zwear/MagnaCut is, I think, my sweet spot for general edc and outdoors. My kitchen knives are Wusthof, so nowhere in the realm of Spyderco performance. I would like to try something further out on the edge retention / wear resistance end of the spread...

Re: Spyderco Worker appreciation

Very cool find! I love the blade shape on the Workers. They just scream "classic Spyderco." Yes this exactly! My first non-SAK, non-Old Timer was a Worker in about 1994. The Worker is the very definition of “Spyderco” to me. An frn version would be awesome. Linerless g10 would also be toight. (My p...

Re: Would you like to see a Sharpening subforum?

I think it’s a great idea. Would be a tremendous resource for those seeking info. Some of the better threads should be stickied, like a couple of Shawn’s threads and the sharpening journal. My other thought is, I don’t want to see 30 subfora here, that makes it too hard to keep up with the content.

Re: What did you use your Spyderco for last?

Today I screwed some 2x4 racks to the posts in my boat shed and carpeted them. The racks hold my two Wenonah solos, a Prism and an Encounter. I took a razor knife out to cut the carpet to staple it to the boards, but it failed at the job. The Zhaman however, kicked booty! D9D261E4-02A9-4200-9EE2-593...

Re: What did you use your Spyderco for last?

Opened some packs of lamb ribs with my Millie. Can you activate the CDT on that model? Yes it has all time zones. I meant countdown timer. The W800H model can be modded to activate a CDT by removing a spec of solder from the back of the “movement”. It can be scraped off or de-soldered if you have a...

Re: Poll: CPM MagnaCut

Well... I had no plans to buy stainless knives except maybe a new Salt. As a cruwear fan, I’ll bolo for cruwear, Z-wear, and eventually MagnaCut.


Bring forth the MagnaCarta Millie!!
