Add holes to you metal handled knives

How about adding holes to your metal handled knives,they will loose weight, have a positive grip & looks cool.

Hi Uncleknife. Welcome tot he Spyderco forum.

Thanx for the input. It has been suggested. Although just adding holes has it's own set of problems. We're considering a number of ways to lighten stainless as a handled material for the upcoming ATR.

Not too light Sal. The solid feal is part of their charm.

What's the ATR ?

The drying vent on my SS Harpy does help regarding grip, and I suppose to a smaller extent to weight. I found that by adding "texturing" to the smooth surface of the stainless, the knife "sticks" in my grasp during manipulation. I accomplished this by adding divots with a pin-punch side by side until the areas I was concerned with appear stippled.

I've been toying with ideas for stippling, checkering, and various methods of making my knives more sticky. I think the one with the most promise, as a handle treatment, is the use of milled grooves in a variety of patterns. Alan Elishewitz does this sort of thing on a lot of his pieces, and they have a really "sticky" feel. They stay in your hand without shifting around, but don't impede carrying and use. Perhaps an Elishewitz/Spyderco collaboration needs to happen...

Its all fun and games til somebody loses an eye, then its fun annd games you can't see.

I think a pattern of holes unique to Spyderco would be a good idea. Round holes, of course.

It sounds like what we need is a Sypderco-Tom Mayo collaboration.
