Re: Shaving sharp off a reprofiling stone

Watching the video got me curious, so I decided to try something similar with a Dragonfly in VG-10. It...didn't work out so well. I used the extra coarse stone from a Worksharp guided bench stone set, and the edge got pretty torn up. I backed up to a well used DMT coarse, and that worked a little b...

Re: Shaving sharp off a reprofiling stone

Great job Vivi. Do you find you need to touch up the edge less often at such a coarse grit? I guess I would worry about wearing the blade out prematurely.

Re: A resurrected lower cost One-Eyed Jack, please

That A.T. Barr design and Spyderco’s execution is the thing. I like the file work a lot. Gives it special character and is the closest I will get to a custom folder in that regard. I think the white, contoured G10 suits the design perfectly and the inlays hold special meaning for me, so I like them...

Re: Is the Siren a Salt?

This is one of those knives I didn’t even know I needed until I saw it. I was actually contemplating picking up a Native Salt at some point, but now I might just have to wait until this one is released.

AFAIK, Spyderco has only used it in a 2014 PM2 and the Lionspy ?

Don't forget this beauty!

Re: A resurrected lower cost One-Eyed Jack, please

I’d be in for one in plain Micarta, G-10, FRN, whatever. There’s just something about the design that speaks to me more than other knives in its size class. But, those scales just killed any interest I had in getting it.

Re: RIP Pacific Salt

I've lost my fair share of Spyderco's to the deep. It's never a good feeling, especially when it means you're going to be without a knife for a bit. I think those little floats you can attach to your keychain will work too. Most of them are good for a couple pounds, so they should have no problem ho...

Re: Collectors club for the rest of us?

I always hoped that Spyderco offered a tier that would allow members to pay a yearly fee, and be given the opportunity to buy a knife available to members only. Then, if there are any left after several months, offer them to the general public through the Spyderco website, or whichever avenue works ...

Forget a calendar, we need a Spyderco photo book.
Wholeheartedly agree! This year is full of tough choices for sure!
I don't envy the folks that have to make the decision, that's for sure!

My entry for the 2020 calendar is my Native 5 LW. It is such a great all around knife, and fits my hand perfectly.
Great shot bud! May want to check why it loaded blurry.
I think it might just be the preview image. When I clicked on it, it was sharp.

I dont understand how someone can go online knowing to buy one, do all the stuff and then think.... "yeah, nah" and cancel. shake my head. I do that all the time with these exclusives.

Yesterday the Delica Wharncliffe serrated came in, Wow in love all over again. Waiting on the HAP 40 PE it should arrive today.
Nice! That version quickly became a favorite when I got it in my hands. It cuts surprisingly smooth for an SE model.

Re: Do you immediately sharpen a new Spyderco?

I've had a couple that just needed a burr removed out of the box. Besides that, I'll usually leave the edge alone for at least the first week.
