My mother has been cutting towards herself as long as I can remember. My Dad keeps all knives in the house very sharp, probably oversharpens them. Nary a cut yet that I've ever heard of. She has though, sewn through her thumb on her sewing machine, and back in the "old days" managed to pass her hand...

Welcome to the forum! Spyderco doesn't have a great # of knives with blades in the 3" vicinity. My 2nd favorite, the Native, officially has a 3 1/8" blade, tho the cutting edge is shorter. In the FRN handle, this knife comes with the "super steel" CPM440V. The Native is a very versatile knife, huski...

For anyone to give you a really effective answer, you need to be as specific as possible about how you see yourself using the knife/knives you're asking about. The laws governing blade length in your area would be nice also. You can buy a number of Spydercos for under $50. Probably the most knife yo...

At least 2 people welcomed you on the thread you titled "Hello." That's better than some get. Mostly, it is an oversite, with people excited about answering the question(s) you ask. This is a very friendly, gentle forum compared to many. If, as would seem realistic, you posted that thread first, the...

I'll have to locate that issue and check the ad. Pretty sure it is a Blade-Tech ad, which is Wegner's company. While there has been lots of talk about the not-Lynx, and we may be seeing it soon, I haven't heard a word about a new Wegner. Also, sometimes companies go on using the word "new" long afte...

Since your initial post included the Wegner, I'd recommend it and the Native. Course, I'm prejudiced. You see, those 2 are my primary EDCs. Both very flexible, utilitarian. Both useful for self defense, should that be necessary. Both tip up carry, which I've grown to prefer. Of course, I know the Mi...

I think that the recent discussions on value, "bang for the buck" etc., really come into play on this choice. Using Knife Center prices, there is no way I can see the Mouse as being worth $5 more than the Wegner. Using Blade Tech's price, I can't see the Mouse costing only $5 less than the Wegner. I...

As always, such things are dependent upon one's use and expectations for a knife. While I am very pleased with the Calypso Jr Ltwt I bought, and even more the Native, I can't see that one can get any more knife for the money than the Endura for $45. I'm not sure one has to stay in the Spyderco fold ...

I've a couple recent situations that demonstrate that I haven't been careful enough with knives. I always have knives by my PC. My daughter has never voiced the slightest hint that she's interested in knives. Has expressed significant distaste for them. About 2 weeks ago, I assume somewhat absentmin...

Mark1955 -- FWIW, I have a Gerber LST that is somewhere between 15 and 18 years old. Possibly older than that. I just can't remember well enough.

Hi MaNcEr. I'm really sorry I didn't follow this thread, after I first posted. I missed a lot, especially your second post.

If you take a look at Spyderco's knife steel chart, you can see that the only appreciable difference between AUS8 and AUS10 is the amount of carbon in the mix. The increased carbon allows increased hardness of the steel. It also enables more carbides to be formed, carbides which are harder than the ...

Ruxton -- am not sure how much in the way of surveying of customers Spyderco does, but it is my guess that they anticipate that the majority of the knives they sell are going to be used as utility tools, or niche/task specific tools. From my perspective, all Spydercos are user oriented. If am correc...

This is just a guess, but I assume it is a weight/design issue. Only one liner is needed for a lock. The Wegner has the unusually long, steel back spacer, which weighs quite a bit. The Wegner as is, is a reasonably hefty knife. A second liner might add a bit more rigidity, but at the price of additi...
