Re: Police versus military?

There Military is much better with gloves/mittens (it's cold here in winter), fits my hand better and I prefer the lock over that of the 2 others. Lots of this is subjective (I like the Police, but never got along with the cbbl Manixes) so if you can handle them it would help.

Re: The Spyderrazor

Only experience is with folding European style carbon steel razors like you used Sal so not much input I can add. I'd prefer them in the 5-6/8 sizes and use UF stones when stropping alone doesn't give a good shave. Strop before every use, I have shaved straight from the UF stones, but it gets better...

Re: The Spyderrazor

The straights I use the most are hollow old carbon steel 5/8s. Might be interested in a stainless one with micarta/CF scales. 5/8 or 6/8

Not sure how H1 would do ;)

Superleaf or leafstorm
Leafstorms pop up from time to time at about $150-250 for a NIB one

I'd love a C22 Michael Walker Sal. Preferably with micarta scales and a slightly improved clip ;)

Re: Spyderco Salt Knives as Anti-Shark Defense Tools?

Not much help in a knife against sharks imho. I dive with one to be able to cut nets, lines and to finish off fish I've speared. I've seen spearos poke curious sharks with their spearguns to keep them away though

Re: Spyderco knife rotation? How many?

About 20-30 are in the regular rotation.

Millies, Technos, C22, Bowie and Chef get the most pocket time, but I like to mix it up and feel bad for knives that aren't in regular use :o

Thinner and convex (eventually). I always give the factory edge some time if it looks ok though.

Re: How did ZDP189 go from a stainless steel to carbon steel?

My ZDP CF Stretch has gotten light staining on the sides of the blade, not rust just slight patina. It's been used for everything since it came out and I've never seen rust on it. Never chipped either, but I try not to hack or torque the blade when cutting :D

Like you said all your scandis have a micro. Even if they came without one from the factory it will often get one the first time you field sharpen it. Nothing to worry about imho ;) And I'm a Scandinavian :D

Re: Do you care about deep carry?

For my smaller knives that I carry at work/in the city I want deep carry. For other use it doesn't matter and I just want a functional clip that is comfortable in use and makes the knife easy to access and carry.

Re: Hey Spyderco!!?? Why Not Try A Conventional Multi-tool?

How about a pair fishing pliers made out of H1? The options out there in the high end aren't great unless you want to spend +$300 on a pair of Titanium Van Staal pliers. Everything else is essentially disposable. I would think an H1 set with braid cutters would grab a descent market share at $150, ...

The really old G10 Militarys only had one liner. They were very light.

For a knife that's never had a version 2, it's sure gone through a lot of revisions.
The single liner carbon fiber one is a featherweight :D

With how much development and CQI the Military has received over the years I don't think I would trust a simple blade swap from a newer model.
This. The early models had slightly thicker blades, so even a blade that isn't from the newest generation might not fit. The newest ones are a no go.

Re: Spyderco Caspian Salt: Bring Back A Sprint Run Please!

It's a great dive knife. It is a pretty mediocre knife for anything else. The straps on the sheath suck (sorry Sal, but they don't work) and need to be replaced with rubber straps before use. Not that many people dive, most of those aren't knife people so sales probably weren't good. Afaik Spyderco ...

Re: Spydie Talk: Q&A, random info, knife chat

I was very happy to see the fine, needle-sharp tip on my Para Military 2. I plan to use it as designed and understanding its advantages and limitations. In my opinion, using a Para Military 2 to “stab” into hard wood, ignoring the possibility that it might damage the tip is to ignore the knife’s li...
