Drop point love?

Any love for drop point Spyderco knives?
I am imagining a drop point version of a Shaman and it is sticking in my brain.
It would make for a helova folding hunter/bushcraft with the similar grind as the Shaman.

Re: New CPM Stainless Steel??

Sounds interesting... High toughness and S30V edge sounds like my favorite LC200N. Will this unobtainium knock LC200N off it’s throne? This is a Larrin designed steel? It must be good! Might have to change the name to Larrinium! I was fortunate to get a sample and did report my testing to Larrin. I ...

Re: New CPM Stainless Steel??

Thanks for the heads up on the new stainless unobtanium (my personal name for this one since we don’t have a real name yet). How does it compare to 15V is my question. Where does if compare in terms of corrosion resistance? Need to send this knife to Cedric and Ada. :)

Re: Machete by Spyderco?

Sorry, I did not make it, I had it made by a talented custom maker. I am not at that level yet. This knife is for BBQ, butchering and anything you might need a gorgeous machete for. If you find yourself in a jungle wearing a tuxedo, this is for you. I am going to make another kitchen machete that wi...

Re: Are Military's done?

I need a salt version with lc200n that will also double as my pocket paring knife. PS, the tanto millie will be rad.

Re: Bearded chef knife

I’m interested to read feedback from the chef(s). I think I would be more likely to pinch the blade in front of the scales than use the finger hole, it looks a little far forward but it’s hard to know without holding it. Another thought- I got a nice 1-1/2” butcher block for my birthday. We have wh...

Re: Machete by Spyderco?

I had a Kitchen Machete made... It is posted with another knife designed if mine. This one is a nimble cutlas of a machete for the kitchen. The next one will be a more chopper leaning design with micarta handles. The blade length is 12.5” https://i.postimg.cc/Pr5rBm9s/D330374-C-A6-DC-4167-8-A83-7-DC...

Re: Bearded chef knife

My bearded chef and SHTF Kitchen Machete The kitchen machete is a 12.5” blade so it makes the 9” chef knife look relatively small. the handle on the chef is a fancy grade New Tasmanian Blackwood and the Kitchen Machete has exhibition grade Koa and both are stabilized wood. What do you think? https:/...

Re: Bearded chef knife

It bothers me so much having low counters, always leaning forward is literally a pain in the neck. I never thought about the height adding a more natural neutral in line ergonomic work position, but now that you mention it... I can see that. The hole position is a compromise like most things in life...

Re: Bearded chef knife

Here is the “Bearded Chef” test model that will go to a local chef for input and critique. Notice the blade edge curve difference to the camp chef one. It weighs 11.5 Oz. with the thinner high carbon steel blade stock that will be better suited for slicing. https://www.africahunting.com/attachments/...

Re: Bearded chef knife

One bonus safety aspect is that when chopping difficult or odd shaped items with a standard knife, too much force because of the hand position means using two hands at times and if it rolls, people can get cut pretty bad. With the extra control and efficiency of this design, this can be safer. Less ...
