Re: Sprint Runs Wanted in Spyderedge

Worker :eek: That is an excellent selection. For years I've wanted to see a Sprint Run worker in Spyderedge ( in a new steel of course :cool: ) Oh yeah, this would be legit. The Worker is my current favorite model and most carried right now. G10 with H1 Spyderedge. Maybe dark Navy or dark Burgundy ...

Re: Sprint Runs Wanted in Spyderedge

I keep hearing how H1 is the best for serrated due to work hardening the more you use it. Is there anything else out there than can compete? If not, why not use H1 for ALL fully serrated models, even non-salt models?

Re: FRN Worker ?

There is a valid argument to be made that Spyderco's ROOKIE and WORKER models are some of the very best designed EDC models ever in their history. But with that being said I would still prefer both of them with G-10 handles. The more I get into this Spyderco hobby/obsession the more I value a solid...

Re: VTOKU Sprint Run

Do you anticipate all of the VTOKU models to drop at the same time, or do they kind of come in randomly throughout the year?

Do all the dealers get them on the same date, or do you see them pop up at different dealers of the course of a few days/weeks?

Re: Chaparral with Micarta Scales / More Micarta-Handled Folders?

Would also like to see some peel ply G10 and peel ply CF as handle options for a Chapparal. Perhaps some sprints or dealer exclusives with these materials will be in our future!

Re: Chaparral with Micarta Scales / More Micarta-Handled Folders?

Copper is out, But I'm looking into Micarta for Chappy's. sal Now that sounds interesting! Very cool. I'm hoping for a matte canvas micarta that has a little texture to it for grip. Not really a fan of polished micarta. Green or Burgundy matte canvas micarta are my favorites. I have quite a few fix...

Hate to bring up the dead, but I would love to see a Chapparal in peel ply G10 or peel ply CF. I really don't like the smooth CF scales.

Re: Any new maxamet knives in the que?

How about a manbug in maxamet? Is Spyderco planning on introducing something like this any time soon? I'd love to try out this steel. And a Manbug might be easier for those of us who have already spent too much on knives. :) I assume Maxamet is only going to be used on the Golden made models. Too b...

Re: Lum Tanto...Yes or No

What would the main functions be for a Tanto like this? What would this excel at vs. your typical PM2 type blade? A Tanto grind/blade is much stronger than a PM2 blade due to less tapering. It should be much stronger if you stab the blade into a tree trunk and yank it out slightly sideways (not say...

Re: Any new para 3 models offering soon

What's the right kind? Scale options? Steel options? My ideal version would be DLT’s red G10 w/M390 but M4 version would be nice too. When I called a week ago, DLT said they have a few exclusive configuration requests submitted to Spyderco, but that the only one almost on the horizon is a rerun of ...

Re: Recommend me some models

How much bigger is the Native? I actually plan on picking up a Blurple G10 S110V Native as probably my next knife. I feel that the Native is significantly larger in hand/pocket than most other 3" Spydies, especially when compared to a Caly3/UKPK or Delica. If you're going Blurple G10, you should se...

Re: The Delica 4: Timeless Classic or Long in the Tooth?

The Delica is a classic Spyderco design for me. Would be cool to see different handle configurations (g10, micarta etc), wire clip and a straight tip. Always keep using Japanese steels though, s30v models felt like a bit of an abomination to me and not much of an improvement over vg-10 I started a ...
