I'd be in as long as it isn't transparent (blue or any other colour) with a down spec'd steel.

Blade spine finishing

I got a Sage 2 last week and am enjoying it more than many of my new knives in the last while. I don't want to get into a Sage 2 vs Sebenza thread or turn my Sage 2 into a Sebenza clone but there is one detail on the Sebenza that would be really, really nice on the Sage series. The finish on the spi...

Sounds like a legit 1st generation. Mine is as you describe. The side that the clip is on isn't textured and the pivot pin is housed in a raised section. The grip on the other side has "straight" joints in both directions rather than the current volcano pattern. If yours is a fake, mine came from th...

I'll play, but I'm also going to assume that it is 20 years ago and I'm still a student with a 2nd hand hatchback and beer money is still more important than knife money. My Endura and Delica 1s were not bad first choices, maybe replace them with a Stretch and a Native respectively. I'd get a Ladybu...

I keep getting told I should get the large first, but when I see the small it looks like a decent size. Anyone have both and if so which is your preferred edc? Weekdays in an office environment surrounded by non-knife people I EDC the small, weekends and holidays the large comes out. I guess you ne...

The Sebenza is a great knife. Quality is stunning. I have 2 smalls and a large Insingo. When you talk about "ease of opening" understand that it is easy to open but it isn't designed to play with in front of the TV. Open it, cut stuff and close it. Chris R mentioned that he makes knives not worry be...

You won't regret that purchase! I don't use my CF200 nearly enough. My knife habit is edging its way to my diving habit that includes 2 rebreathers

I was clearing out at a house today after a tenant had moved out. Just before I left home I thought that I'd probably need some teeth. Out came a Tasman Salt from my back-up drawer to my back up EDC drawer. I keep a serrated Tasman Salt in my dive gear tool box, it occasionally gets used as a back-u...

Replies: 35

There is a lot to like about the Para 2, for it's price I doubt a general user looking for a 3.5 inch blade could go wrong. Personally, I'm not wild about the choil (I'd prefer more cutting edge) and I perceive the pointy end to be too delicate. As such, whilst my standard PM2 gets carried every few...

What’s the next lock on the Sage series?

I might just be starting speculation a bit soon but here goes. So we’ve seen a liner lock, a frame lock, a ball lock and now a back lock. What are the options for Sage 5? Sliplock …. Methinks it can wait, go buy a UKPK for the moment. Axis lock? Now that would be very interesting but I suspect unlik...

If you take a Spyderco apart you have voided your warranty. I'm not sure how many people see that as an issue (it really isn't an issue for me). If it arrives in good condition and doesn't fall apart in the first week (before any mods) then the chances are good that it isn't going to need the warra...

I'm probably opening a whole new can of worms here ..... The Native 5 is by all accounts a very popular knife. Do the exotic steel as a sprint or as a standard production run and then offer, for a limited time, forum scales in whatever colour and material that can be bought seperately from the knife...

N5 is a great EDC. I prefer my knives slightly heavier so this works well. Blade shape and FFG very useful. I am not a fan of steep thumb ramps so +1 for that. The ergos really just "work" for my smallish hands. Very, very smooth action. Aesthetically I prefer the more discrete swedge than was prese...

I'd go back to basics : Serrated Delica 4. I have not got around to getting a D4 to go with my old D1 and D3 because there always seem to be others that need to be tried out .... if it was all over, the last one has to be a Delica for sentimental reasons.

Serrated Delica 1 some time in early / mid '90s. Still have it but it stays (mostly) retired in the Spyderco knife roll.

I'm going to go with the Wayne Goddard Jr sprint (2010?) - this is a very under rated model in my mind. I'm not partial to tip down carry or partly serrated blades but even so this gets a surprising amount of pocket time in a "smart casual" office environment .... it keeps the very similar (lock asi...
