That is good news! The Efficient, aka, the poor mans Native, lol.
This, 100%, has been the one thing that has stopped from getting some other Spydercos, while still adding an extra Salt here and there.
I am partial to LinerLocks and both the Dragonfly and Delica come with backlocks, otherwise I would definitely be looking into both of these knives.
I felt the same, untill I got them.JaseRicco wrote: ↑Sat Mar 03, 2018 10:27 pmI am partial to LinerLocks and both the Dragonfly and Delica come with backlocks, otherwise I would definitely be looking into both of these knives.
The cat is just too small, I like to stick to a blade that is around 3 inches. Plus I don’t really like the wire clip that the cat comes with.
But thank you for the suggestions, much appreciated.
On your suggestion I took a look at the salt series knives, they look like some really nice quality pieces. I really like the yellow handles scales, different, and I like different or unique. I purchased the Efficient because it was the only Value Knife with a finger choil, and I purchased the Alcyone because it was the only one with Gray G-10. I’m not really into serrations, I am partial to a plain edge myself, but I see each one of the knives in the Salt line can be selected with either serrations or plain, so that’s not a problem. And you’re right, I do tend to lean towards more of a medium sized knife, about a 3” blade is my preference, so the Salt 2 FRN is perfect, right at a 3” blade. But I am not against a knife that is a bit bigger. I actually went back and looked through the Value line to see if anything struck my fancy. I saw that Spyderco released a Tenacious Exclusive in Orange G-10, and with a black blade, man is it just a bad a#! looking knife. So again, considering that I like unique, I HAD to pick it up. So I think this purcahse will leave me satisfied...for now lol. Plus, at $80-$90, the Salts are more then I’d like to spend on knives at the present. I had to dig down deep to spend $67 on the Alcyone, so another $20 on top of that...not even close to being ok with that yet. On top of which I am partial to LinerLocks. However, I see...I see...more expensive knives in my future though haha.Surfingringo wrote: ↑Fri Mar 02, 2018 6:17 amI believe the frn Salt knives are the biggest “value” in the Spyderco lineup and I think every spydie fan should own at least one Salt. I also think every spydie fan should own at least one knife with Spydercos serrations. The H1 salts are at the top of the food chain in performance for serrated blades. You see where I’m going with this? There are some great options in there but my favorite is the large Pacific Salt. I know you gravitate towards smaller knives so you might have a look at the Salt 2. With that one you are basically getting a lightweight Delica in a completely corrosion proof package. What’s not to like?
Some good advice, and very true.
Awesome!! Can’t wait to see what it is!!
I looked at these, very nice pieces. But as an Officer, if I purcahsed a rescue type of knife, I would definately spring for one of the knives in the Assist line. I can see them being extremely useful in a rescue scenario.
I picked up the Spyderco exclusive Tenacious with Orange G-10 and a black blade earlier today. Should be here a just a couple days...CAN’T WAITDaveho wrote: ↑Fri Mar 02, 2018 1:39 pmYou can of course also look into the ambitious/tenacious range, the difference between CTS-BD1 v 8cr13mov is negligible with people having preferences either way but I’ve not tried the former.
My ambitious has seen years of use and is still solid, it’s been through hundreds if not thousands of pallets of car parts.
