Re: Sal, what are the chances for another DS93X Thor blade spydie?

Make a Calypso with Black Linen Micarta and Damasteel. Would be elegant, beautiful, classic, and very functional.

Re: Standard Production vs Sprints, S30V vs X steel, and market saturation..

I think the pre-order falling thru is due to the end seller over selling the knife not any fault of Spyderco. I'm sure the distributers and vendors get allocated a certain number and probably slightly oversell them so they will have backfill for those that cancel orders. Not really a great customer ...

Re: Lets talk about high carbide steels

I'm with you lance! I'm a fanatic about having my edge be absolutely keen as I can get it. Once it loses that super vorpal level of sharpness I touch it up wether it's high carbide wear-resistant steel or lowly 52100. It's so much quicker and easier to make a steel like 52100 or N680 sticky sharp th...

Re: My friend broke another clip....

Steel tempered to have "Springiness" will be more brittle when it's yield strength is exceeded. That is the trade off. If you temper steel to be able to be bent back and forth without breaking it will be inherently less "Springy" Tell you friend to be more cautious when carrying in a manner prone to...

Re: Shipping of internal parts

You know Michael I appreciate your passion but yours are not the only "good" ideas. You might want to keep some perspective on how to have a discussion. "This is supposed to be a discussion. You know, an airing of various ideas and opinions". That doesn't mean calling other peoples suggestions a "ba...

Re: Shipping of internal parts

Thanks for your insights Sal. For me I would rather see a continual refinement of a given model and ongoing parts availability than a continual parade of new models. I think afi's lust for new and different could easily be accomplished with variations in blade steel and scale material thus simplifyi...

Re: Crazy deals @ Sierra and other places

I bought a Streetbeat from Knife Center for $149 when they were closing them out and feel I got an incredible deal! $107 would have been a ridiculous price! The micarta version is a really nice knife!

Re: My first PM2

I would not overlook the brown s35vn either. It has respectable edge retention, good ease of sharpening, stainless, moderately tough and a low key less "tactical" look. One of my favorite EDC variants. I own or have owned most of the Sprints and Exclusives and the CF M4, CF 52100, and brown s35vn ar...
