Re: K390 Heritage ETA?

It's going to be a long wait for the Dfly, and to find out if a wharncliffe Delica's in there.

Unfortunately my faincé put it in the "charity box" together with a lot of other cutlery and kitchen utensils.

Yah, not cool, if it was important.

Re: >30 degree factory bevels

I sharpen all my knives to around 15 per side, unless they come that way. Then I leave them until touchup time. 20 per side is crappy for whittling wood. You have to push too hard. I wish they all came at 30 degrees (15 per side). I don't care about microbevels. I guess I make them when I lightly ge...

Re: Spyderco serration history

Knowing your part in developing the jazzlica, have your "new" appreciation of serrations changed anything for you regarding the wharncliffe? Do you still use it? Do you now prefer the serrated version? I like a plain edge wharncliffe, but with serrations I like a bit of belly to let the teeth work ...

Re: Crunch-Time Hardware? Spyders For Trying Times?

Mostly Dragonflies. Always a small Swiss Army. I keep needing scissors, of all things. I miss my wharnie at work.

Re: Spyderco serration history

I think a lot of us originally stayed away from, or were turned off of serrations because we didn’t know how EASY they are to sharpen with Sal’s tools and teaching. Also, when they’re sharp, they cut well, with less, or no snagging. I know I did a complete 180° turn with them. I’ve tested on various...

Re: Endela paradigm shift!

Yes, the Endela just feels smaller and lighter, but not. It is a masterful design for the 3.5" size range.

Any chance we get a run of UKPK with Rex 45 in both FRN and G10 burnt orange?

FRN for me - yes, please!

Re: Native 5 LW First Impressions

Also, if you add a dent you have to be sure first that you can still depress the lock bar down far enough to disengage the lock.

Re: Endela paradigm shift!

Funny how I don’t like that size range, but the Endela just feels awesome, and it wants to cut. PE and SE. I like them both. Perfect weight too.

Re: Sal—design for Roadie 2

Thank you for giving it a go, Sal. It sounds pretty cool.

As a side note, we have a lot of time on our hands, so I hope we aren’t too annoying.

Re: Serration Disappointment

They're definitely on the right side of the blade, if you're right handed., especially for whittling. You don't get the blade digging in the wood, etc. too much. Easier to angle the blade away from what you're cutting than into it, to keep it cutting straight. You just get used to it. It's probably ...

Re: Sal—design for Roadie 2

Whatever you make, we’ll buy, Sal. I trust you’re a better designer than us by far. I just hope for a clip if it’s that size range. Not all pants like horizontal knives. And a hole at the far end of the handle, so the fob can fit properly. I love your dimple opener as much as the hole opener. Nail n...

Re: Sal—design for Roadie 2

Hi Doc, I'm watching the thread. Interesting. I guess I'm having difficulty seeing the advantage of new tooling to pick up an additional 3/8" in blade length and a clip? Shortening the Ricasso increases the chance of accidental cutting. In order to fit the double dent in a Warncliffe, the blade wou...

Re: Show your mods!

Thank you kindly, guys. It really changes this great little big knife, yet still looks like it came from Sal's mind. I like them stock, with rounded humps, and this way. Can't go wrong with a Dfly.

Re: Sal—design for Roadie 2

I love it. With a 2.75 inch blade and 0.078” thick blade stock this would be the best pocket knife on the market. The Roadie handle allows for on hand opening. I can live with 2.8mm thickness as you suggest if it is thin behind the edge. Now, to see what Sal thinks of our collaboration. Or 2.5 mm t...
