Re: How long have you been carrying knives, and how have your needs changed?

Whilst I had knives before that I only really started carrying a knife full time when I was in the army (35 years ago). Swiss army type knife was perfect for my needs then. Quite honestly, my NEEDS haven’t changed. I could still carry a Vic Compact all day, every day and be covered for 95% of what I...

Re: Spydie Collection Satisfaction Survey

My accumulation has definitely slowed down the last two or three years. I’ve been a net seller for a while now rather than frantically trying to get the latest models / steels / colours ... I’m down to around 80 Spydies. My Spyderco preference is for the Japanese made models. Given the prohibitive c...

Re: What's your favorite Seki City Blade?

Of the models still in production, Centofante III. Most under rated “entry level” Japanese made Spyderco. It’s way overdue for some CQI (screw construction) and a sprint with a different steel.

Discontinued models, probably Kopa, Memory, Lum Chinese and Baby Horn

Re: Benchmade Bugout Omega Spring Failure

Clearly a case of my mileage varying here. Until recently I carried BMs about as often as I did Spydercos. I’ve been using Axis locks for more than 10 years and have yet to break an Omega spring. That included almost 3 years living right next to the beach where rust might have been a worry. Recently...

Re: My favorite handle design

When I saw the thread title my first thought was ... throw the D’Allara into the ring so I’ll say +1 for the D’Allara.

I’ll also add the Native III (the Japanese model). Native 3 (top) vs Native 1

Re: About that food prep ...

Biltong (dried, cured meat) tastes better when cut with a pocket knife.

Re: Is anyone else completely in love with the Dragonfly?

Although I prefer the thinner blade of the Dragonfly, I much prefer the ergos of the Kopa. As a result my Kopa gets carried a lot more than my ‘Flys even though I know I will be very disappointed if something happend to my Kopa.

Re: Most underappreciated steel?

Under appreciated by Spyderco ... 154CM. Nothing special but a decent “everyday” knife steel in the VG10 performance category that Spyderco hardly used.

Re: There's something that's a little overdue

..... IMO, Spyderco could use many other images as well. For instance, one of the Salt models, like a Tasman, shown on a fishing boat with rope or netting next to it and the sea in the background. Or a rock jumper with mountain climbing equipment and a mountain in the background. All kinds of image...

Re: The Surprising Tusk

I like the Tusk because I really appreciate the engineering and thought that went into the design. I got mine in 2014 when the MAP discounts to MSRP were bigger than they are now. At $230 I didn’t regard it in Sebenza price range. It was also my (the?) first Spyderco LC200N / Cronidur 30 knife when ...

Re: LeafJumper

I carried my PITS earlier in the week and at the time thought to myself that I really liked the handle, the swell and the fact that there were no pointy indexing points anywhere. I pulled out my D'Allara as well to compare the very similar handles. I really wanted to like the D'Allara but the lock d...
