Re: Urban Slipjoint 'action' not crisp

I've always looked at the Urban and UKPK as being knives where the main point of control is the thumb and index finger pinching the blade, with the handle being there for additional grip. The action being a bit softer and less crisp than many traditionals doesn't particularly bother me. But I'm also...

Re: Official 2018 Catalog Discussion

Hi LC, that is actually the Waterway. The design went through quite an evolution and the picture shown with the name is actually an older prototype. The Waterway will look like the picture on page 116-117. Hopefully it won't go into the print version like that but if it does, I trust you guys will ...

Re: MAP policy change? 35%

I'd like to see them dump Amazon altogether ... I'm in the same boat, actually. I don't mind Amazon as a company, but my biggest objection to MAP is uneven enforcement, which negates the only consumer-facing benefit that MAP has (Supporting smaller dealers). So if Spyderco's going to do MAP at all,...

Re: Sell me the Schempp Bowie...or not

Talking to Ed about that knife, and handling his personal model, was one of the highlights of Blade Show for me. It's not my style, particularly, but it's absolutely a respectable and well-thought-out knife.

Re: MAP policy change? 35%

Yikes. This is gonna be a tough pill to swallow for a lot of people, a 5% across-the-board price increase on top of whatever product specific hikes. Particularly given that it'll hit the lower priced items too. 8.3% Yeesh. Well, hopefully this gives Spyderco the capital to walk the 'supporting smal...

Re: Lock type and blade thickness

I've often suspected this, too. Knives where the lockbar doesn't travel laterally, but is inserted at full width into the path of the blade somehow (e.g. ball bearing lock, moving bar locks, bolt action, backlocks) seem like they'd be more easily able to be made thin.

Re: New Warranty Covers (Some) Disassembly

This is a beautiful warranty, which addresses all of the concerns I'd had previously. The fact that CQI applies even to warranties is a beautiful thing. Thanks, Spyderco.

Re: eBay Settles Spyderco Counterfeit Lawsuit

Hopefully eBay paid out the nose, enough to incentivize them to take the problem seriously and address this for the whole community. I hope other companies are next in line, if the bay doesn't address the problem.

Looks like a nice, subtle gentleman's EDC folder. A real lunchroom-friendly piece.

Re: Official Sliverax Discussion Thread

Did we ever get an explanation for the name 'Sliverax'? I know 'sliver' was taken, and the world is not yet ready for 'flippy foldy cut-n-holdy', but do we know how they settled on Sliverax? Any relation to Sycorax?
