The Battlestation is really tickling my fancy out of all of the new shiny things in 2014. Just so different in style and shape. The Hungarian folder is also-strangely- appealing too me also- it's (to my eyes) like the classic Opinel/Laguiole style mashed up with the classic Spyderco style....Me like...

I know you said its the same but care to share a pic of your ATR? But of course, good sir! First picture against a pale back ground with the flash on shows the 'rainbow bloom' from the PVD coating of TiNi inside the handle. http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a146/demoncase/IMAG2808_zpsb26cfbe4.jpg h...

As with many things, the answer would depend on the prybar being discovered by the police, and the circumstances under which they discovered it., If you're observed loitering outside a building at 2am, and frisked, most cops are probably going to consider any prybar to be a burglar's tool and the s...

This is a supertough question- I'm on 50+ Spydies at last count. In truth, the one that stands out is the Squeak- it's UK Penknife Law compliant. The blade is more 'fat seed' than 'pointy leaf' which doesn't mean much to us but looks much less threatening around Non-Knife-Peeps and other 'fraidy cat...

Pretty good response so far, let's keep it going! Anyone actually own one of these bad boys? Me. ;) Exactly as pictured- the plain edge/ TiNi(?) coated version. Handles very nicely- good weighty nice with a great balance- slick opening as well. The blade shape is superb for serious heavy work- the ...

The plural of 'anecdote' is not 'data'.

Once is interesting, twice is a conincidence, three times is a pattern of behaviour.

Lead, follow or get out of the way (Very useful for committees and meetings!)

Some people have no idea. We live in a world where the original Gerber Mk2 was banned from sales at the PX because it was an 'evil assassination weapon' Gerber added the serrations and called it a survival tool, and all was well. The same length and steel double edged blade with 3-4" of serrations a...

DLC coatings- like all surface treatments from the more traditional carburising and nitriding to the more modern PVD and plasma coatings- vary quite a bit in practice as described, even when a 'propriety' 'recipe' is being used. The reasons for this are myriad in detail, but broadly come down to sur...

A Delica is a great knife. It's also the most expensive and least effective prybar you're likely to have in your tool box ;)

Way back when, over the gravity well and in days of yore- I needed an e-mail adress for university assignments. I wanted Headcase. That was taken.

Depends on your intended usage: The Matriarch- or even better the Li Matriarch- would be the best choice for serious cutting chores if you need that style of edge....Personally, a Delica would probably be more versatile- the reverse S isnt the best choice for fine work. If your job takes you into 't...

My little- growing- collection.

A careful 10 years of 'investing' in the odd Spydie when I'd got a few quid spare. Oh, and if anyone's got something they can see I don't have and want to sell it in UK- yeah, I'm interested. http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a146/demoncase/IMAG2742_zpsc4849414.jpg http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/...

A much loved Delica 2- perfect little pocket knife. Made me fall in love with the whole concept.... 10 years later and *ahem* £, I've still got it and another 50 or so others to keep it company ;)

In equal order: Police- steel handle and Full serrated. Slim, slick and feels like pure class in the hand. Squeak- N690 steel is awesome and the whole package is just 'right'- not big enough to scare Non-Knife-Peeps but enough blade to do most things I need in my daily life. In a world where even th...
