Re: Spyder Classics: The C-58 JD Smith model

What we really need is that flat grind sprint shrunk down to a 3 or 3.25 inch blade.

Re: What do you think of metal handles?

I like metal handles. I do need to be clear though, it’s never cold enough for me to wear gloves so the thermal issues don’t come into play. I regularly use titanium and aluminium handled knives, occasionally stainless. I prefer the smooth scale surfaces as they don’t shred my pockets. I have gravit...

Re: Which folder?

Nothing with a delicate tip, open construction for easy cleaning, washers rather than bearings ... from what’s in my collection, probably a Starmate.

Re: Completely Forgotten Spyderco Models: Your Favorites?

I just want to say thank you to Reject for taking the time to unpack his collection and posting photos of his Spydercos. I really do enjoy seeing the oldies and the variants in his, and other peoples, collections. It makes me realize that, in relative terms, I don’t have a problem at all! Whilst I d...

Re: End of 2020 Opinions on VG-10

VG10 is still a great steel for the regular “man in the street”. I get that Deadboxhero and others that are steel enthusiasts want to push limits and I’m pleased they do because we all learn as a result but as a user, everyday steel, VG10 is really good. It is readily available and has a good balanc...

Not completely forgotten but possibly fading from memory.

I carry my Almite version a few times a year. The Nishijin version is in my pocket today for the first time in many years.

Hard anodized aluminium. Kevin Wilkins made them for a while.

Re: POLL: More Atlantic Salt versions (leafshape, drop point...) based on its already existing, very "pm2-ish" handle?

...Snip .. I'd be happiest to see it in a sort of modified sheepsfoot, reverse tanto, or wharncliffe, with a slight belly, because I've found that to be the most useful shape for general EDC tasks. Full-flat ground of course. So few Spydies have this kind of slight belly and that's a bit annoying b...

Re: POLL: More Atlantic Salt versions (leafshape, drop point...) based on its already existing, very "pm2-ish" handle?

Whilst I voted yes, I’d much rather see a flat ground, stainless, leaf or drop point blade in the Rescue 79 / Salt Saver chassis. I no longer really carry or use knives in excess of 3.25 inch blade length outside of the kitchen.

Re: GB Air Return?

Stainless, just a touch of belly, wire clip and a darker carbon fiber ... I’d probably get whatever comes out as I kick myself for missing it but those would be my preferred options.

Re: High Hollow Grind

Has Spyderco ever done a hollow grind that goes into the opening hole? If the hollow grind stops before the opening hole starts, it’s a hollow sabre grind in my mind. Swayback is the most recent one that comes to mind Yup and the Southard as I discovered when I started looking at mine. https://i.po...
