Re: What do you carry on new years eve? And a happy 2019 to everyone!

Hinderer XM-18 3.5” Skinner. Beautiful knife and just fancy enough for a night out. Manbug on keychain.

Re: price increase?!

Prices will keep going up as long as the market can support it. A PM2 is a little piece of metal, a few spacers, screws and some G10, but we clamor to pay $150 every time a new color/steel is put on the market. So, as long as the market says it’s with $150...$160 is not that big of a stretch. Equat...

Re: Forest Green CTS 204p Para 2

Re: $300 Taiwan Spyderco?

Once you get into the $300 range, knife options really start to open up for VERY nice options. In my opinion, I can get a much better knife with superior steel. Pass.

Re: REX 45 Military In Stock!

I used my “Rex45” money on a really great knife I got for a major discount with all the weekend sales. The Sprints Game was cute and fun the first few months, now it’s just old and played out. The economy is doing great right now and most people have a job if they want one. When things slow down, th...

Re: China and tariffs

95% of my Spyderco knives are Colorado knives, and I could not justify buying a Chinese one if i had to pay 25% more. The reason I buy the Chinese Spydercos is because they are the “budget” hard use ones...Like the Tenacious.

Re: What percent of your knife collection consists of users?

I clicked11-20% I have about 10 knives I use in random rotation....Mili, PM2,Tenacious and 7 other non Spydercos. I have a lot of the sprints and I don’t plan on using them just yet. Honestly, I can’t bring myself to use them because I like having them in mint condition. I personally don’t see the p...

Re: Your Spyderco Thanksgiving EDC

Green 204 Mili.
It’s my favorite Spyderco and it’s hard to kick out of the pocket.

Also, the Mili is a fan favorite. Every time anyone sees me using it, they ask about it.

Re: Cutlery Shoppe Para 3 exclusives

Mine was hand delivered to my house today by Mrs. Idaho 2017!

Just kidding, still no shipping confirm. But I’m an adult and I realize that I can’t always get everything I want, when I want it...and that’s okay.

In all seriousness: Happy Thanksgiving you knife nuts!!!

Re: Cutlery Shoppe Para 3 exclusives

No shipping notice, but not a big deal. I have done business several times with Cutlery Shoppe so not worried about it. I'm just happy to have gotten one of the DLC flavors before the sold out.

Re: Cutlery Shoppe Para 3 exclusives

Couldn’t resist this one...even if the Para 3 is not my all time favorite...still a great knife with a steel I don’t own.
That’s what I told myself as I was ordering the knife.

Well, not everyone's a midget. People with larger hands like a comfortable knife.

A Delica has zero ergonomics for me.
Yes, this!

I’m 6’2” 200lb big hands, the Mili is normal sized for me...the Para 3 just feels awful in hand. Also agree, never said “sure wish I had a smaller knife”.

Re: Is the Military too big or big enough?

The Mili is my favorite Spyderco made. The knife fits my hands perfectly, I love the lock, and the blade size and shape is a dream. I don’t like the Para 3 at all. I have 6 of them because I got hooked on the sprints, but I don’t carry them...ever. For me, they are just too small and uncomfortable t...

Re: What would make you buy more Spyderco fixed blades?

Be competitive. There are so many good fixed blades in the $60 to $140 range. And Spyderco does offer some good ones in that range. The Moran is a classic imho. However, the price and quality makers like LT Wright and others are offering makes buying a Spyderco fixed blade difficult. You mentioned ...
