Re: The Unofficial Spyderco MERRY CHRISTMAS Thread

Spent the morning opening presents at home & our usual breakfast of Christmas themed pancakes. Late afternoon we head 15 minutes down the road to my In-laws & spend the rest of the day with them & my Sister In-laws family. Open presents & stockings, then dinner. Afterwards head home & just relax. Cu...

The torch has been passed.

So today I carried my Chaparral LW to open any presents, cut tape, etc.

How many times did I use it? - Zero, None, Nada, Zilch.
Didn't even pull it out of my pocket.

Why?
My oldest was beating me to the punch with his Para 3 LW.

Re: Your Spyderco Christmas Eve And Christmas Day EDC

Today will be spent running some last minute errands, dinner at the In-laws, followed by Christmas mass, I'll be carrying my Rhino. With a Bug-out pocket clip it's low profile, but up to any task I might encounter. Tomorrow I will probably be carrying my Chaparral LW. Package opening & tape cutting ...

Most days just 1. I also have a Griffon pocket tool on my keyring along with a Leatherman Squirt.

Re: First Opinel Experience

I picked up a standard Opinel #8 in carbon steel prior to an official Boy Scout trip where we were not allowed to carry fixed blades. I was skeptical it would hold up to my wood carving & camp kitchen needs, but it actually excelled. My only complaint was with the ergonomics of the handle. The upper...

Re: C95 Manix Sprint

I remember when the original Manix came out people over on Bladeforums were comparing it to the Sebenza in terms of fit & finish.

Re: The Spyderco Rescue Designer? History?

Only Rescue I have is the blue handled version like 5th one down in this pic. Carried it as a work knife at the hospital till I got a Gen 4 Delica. Always liked how the blade on this version looked.

Re: Are you done with 2019, Spydie wise? What do you wish for in 2020?

Only thing in my sights now is the Ikuchi. Whether 2019 or 2020 remains to be decided by the bank account after Christmas shopping.

Re: What are you having for Thanksgiving?

Same as always. Pack up the car tomorrow and head down to visit my parents in Florida over the holiday. Only difference this year will be my oldest coming on his own after his college classes tomorrow. Then we basically sit around, eat, play cards, go see a movie one night, and read.

Re: Smile, It's a Delica

While lately I have swapping between a Chaparral LW and a Rhino, the Delica is my benchmark to judge folders by.

Re: A little help from the fixed blade guys, please!

I'd recommend L.T. Wright's knives. I count him as a friend & he's good people. He also makes a good knife. I've got a small Workhorse in D2 from his early days that is outstanding. Another favorite is the small Northern Hunter in AEB-L. Carried it on a camping trip and it did all I asked of it - fe...

Re: Sharpies

At my last job I used a fine tip Sharpie all the time to write patient info on x-ray films we sent off to be read by the radiologist. Still have it in my messenger bag, though it doesn't see much use in my new job.

Re: Sal, how about a Chaparral with 2.5mm blade thickness?

Is the lock on my Chaparral LW harder to operate than my Delica - yes. Is it so hard that I feel the need to make the blade thicker - NO. Yes I would like it if it was easier to operate my Chaparral LW's lock, but not at the expense of losing the thin blade. And to further clarify - this is coming f...

Re: Turkey

The main reason to have Turkey on Thanksgiving is to cook the Stuffing!!! inside it. While I eat a few slices of turkey, it's the Stuffing I overdose on.

Re: How Spyderco came out on top

The Delica

Big enough for most day to day knife needs. Small enough for easy carry & legal blade length laws. Low enough price-wise where owners are not afraid to use them. Material quality enough to meet the owners needs.
