A big no from me. I'd much rather pay the premium for a US/Japanese Spydie.

To me, the "ideal" does not exist . Agreed. The only real 'must' is that it can not fail. I've sacrificed maybe two Spydies (Millie & an Endura) in order to save myself and/or others. I didn't think twice, because the Spydie was definitely going to do the job - I had no doubts and in those types of...

Definitely a huge fan of my Yang. I find it fine for most tasks (including carving reasonably large legs of lamb, pork etc.). It would be good to have a heavier one for deboning though and perhaps a smaller one for more delicate tasks. I've gotta say, and I don't want to get flamed here, but I'd act...

Very interesting question. I have a reasonable amount of rescue experience in both general land rescue and inland water rescue (no vert rescue or road crash rescue though). -What features are nice to have? Wharncliff EDIT: or Sheepsfoot blade is a no brainer for me. I also like SE with a reasonable ...

Your best & most useful Spyderco

Hi all, Haven't been around in a while - been pretty busy. I've been thinking about my Spydies lately and which one I would consider to be the best and most useful knife I've bought. My Millie is a great workhorse and I love my Caly III with its brilliant blade shape. My Stretch II is very well desi...

First Generation Rescue

Hi guys, A friend of mine pulled out a first generation Rescue (which I didn't even know he had) today. I was pretty impressed. I do have one question though, the hollowed slit in the handle - does anyone know what its purpose is? My friend was told that it was because it is a 'marine knife' and the...

Well the pics in Donut's post show the difference in size. There is a bit of a difference, but it isn't massive. I think the Stretch is a much better knife though - better ergonomics, better grind, better blade shape etc.

Definitely the Sharpmaker for me - Medium grit rods, then fine and sometimes even ultra-fine.

I found the Hawkbill shape is very useful when working from boats and in the water, so I'd go with the Tasman or the Spyderhawk.

I have a Tasman and a Salt I which are small enough to clip to the back pocket of my boardshorts and still large enough to cut pretty much anything I come across.

Me too. I have used most of my knives, but some only for a very short time and then they go back in the Spyderpac and come out when I want to play with them.

I have two, PE & SE Delica IV. Gotta say, I am not a big fan (really sorry about that). I love the size I love VG-10 I love the FRN scales I love the blade shape I love how it looks I loathe, completely and utterly, the grind. I do, on the odd occasion, carry the SE, because the serrations go a litt...

I haven't got one, but I think it looks like a really cool knife. I love the transparent G10, I think it makes the knife something special and I would like to see it on a few more knives. I won't be getting one though, for me it is just way too expensive for a knife that small. I realise the titaniu...

I have a mixture of both. For me it does also depend on the grind. I really like FFG in PE, but I would much rather SE in the sabre grind (like a D4). I have a mixture of both but find for my much heavier work, the SE (on a Millie) is the way to go. There is also a sense of satisfaction in sharpenin...

Kicking this thread again ;) So, what Spydie to take along, or buy? I'm considering a D4 in VG-10, although I haven't decided whether it should be a PE or SE. CE doesn't appeal to me. The Spydie I take along should be able to take a beating, should not rust, should have about 3" of blade, a decent ...
