Yes, I have also heard of a store that has a service grinding Spyderedges into blades but I should someday try to order a blade, see if I can have it delivered there then ground and shipped to me in the Netherlands.
We usually pay a load of taxes and shipping (customs here even tax the shipping fees) so if I would have to pay that twice it would become very expensive.
Should look into it though, maybe try out a Byrd first?

I've had the same thought about purchasing an inexpensive PE model or even making a basic folder and then sending it out for a full SE or even a combo-edge. It would be cool to hear from other folks who have used this service on their own knives before "jumping in" with both feet. :)

It would also be great to have a SE customground to be able to decide how you want a "combo-edge", I would like one with about 15mm from the tip plain the rest serrated.. :)

Exactly! That would be very similar to how the old SE Military models were done. This gives you a decent section of PE right at the tip, which is great for detail cutting.

From the mid-year catalog:

Reinhold Rhino™
Designed by Michael Reinhold, the Reinhold Rhino offers impressive
strength and cutting performance in a very compact package. Its
thoughtfully radiused, ergonomic handle combines textured G-10 scales
and nested stainless steel liners to offer a comfortable, hand-filling grip.
It’s also home to Spyderco’s patented Compression Lock™ mechanism,
which provides extreme lock strength and easy one-handed operation. The
sweeping full-flat-ground CTS® BD1 stainless steel blade packs plenty
of edge into its length and cuts with authority far beyond its size. To ensure
convenient carry, the Reinhold Rhino includes a reversible clip that provides
ambidextrous tip-up carry and a lined lanyard hole for easy
attachment of lanyards and fobs.

The Reinhold Rhino is now REAL! Congratulations, Michael! Very impressive "Little Big Knife." So many quality details in this little beast of a cutter. Well-designed ergos. Cool blade shape. Nested liners, nice touch. Looking forward to getting a hold of it.

When the champagne eventually does stop flowing, :) please share any details you can about the :spyder: journey and also your designer''s mark.

So will the BD1 steel dramatically reduce the price of this knife? Or not so much?

Rhino is one of only two knives I will be interested in mid-year catalog. I never tried BD1 either. I hope the price will not brake a bank due to heavy royalties to designer :D :)

do you want to wait a year for sprint with S110V and dark green polished G10 scales (I know, wishful thinking :) )? or get this now?

You are too kind, Sully. Thank you for the nice comments. :) I'd love to share my journey with Spyderco with you and the gang. Talk about a fantastic ride! :) I'll do a little write-up here soon regarding my experience and also my designer's mark. ;)

Liquid Cobra wrote:So will the BD1 steel dramatically reduce the price of this knife? Or not so much?
That is a good question. I'm not entirely sure, but I am guessing that it may not effectively lower the overall cost since it is a USA-made steel and must be shipped overseas for production (especially when compared to a steel like VG-10 that is already manufactured overseas).

Hahaha! :D :D :D :D That is too funny, Roman. Good stuff!

Thank you for posting the info from the Mid-Year Catalog, Sparky2016. That was the first thing I saw when I opened this thread. :)

I for one would prefer (and can wait for) S110V steel. Sorry Michael, I do not mean to offend, BD1 does not do this knife justice, your knife deserves better.

Is that a compression lock I see? Love the sweeping lines, I wish the hardware & clip were black it would be darn near perfect.

Definitely on the acquisition list.

Man, great price on this. $50 at KnifeCenter. I think I will have to get one as well now. I don't have a blade shape like this at all.

Agreed. It seems like a very good value at that price point.

Under $50? Did not expect that either!
