What is your favorite Spyderco in CPM Cruwear?

Postby Doeswhateveraspidercan » Wed Apr 10, 2019 12:32 pm

I am curious to see which are peoples favorites in CPM Cruwear. I only own one Knife in CPM Cruwear and that is a Military I am almost afraid to use because of how expensive they are to replace on the secondary market now. In other words a safe queen.

Looking to branch out and buy some more CPM Cruwear.

Thanks.
I have spoken. :)

Mule. Not kidding.

I think it's a great steel for a fixed blade.

My favorite is a Paramilitary 2. Why, is very simple. I only have one knife in CPM Cruwear. Not a safe queen. I put this steel to use.

We asked many times for more Cruwear on this forum. Hope it will happen eventually. Almost regardless of the model i will buy any Cruwear that will be released. Such a balanced nice steel.

Not many options unfortunately. My favorites are the Native and Native LW that don't yet exist (but should exist and hopefully will very soon) and the CQI Military which doesn't exist either. :(

The Grey Para 3 is probably my favorite of the past models. I wasn't a fan of the scales on the two Manix Cruwear exclusives. And I also didn't care for the smooth G10 scales on the recent Para 3 and PM2 Cruwear exclusives. The Military is pre-CQI unfortunately, so I am hoping they come out with a new CQI Cruwear sprint or exclusive.

There has been much talk of a Cruwear/Micarta Shaman, but nothing confirmed yet.

I also like to think that with all the Cruwear Nation talk last year, maybe some dealers jumped on the bandwagon and requested some exclusives that will be released later this year. This is my favorite steel and the favorite of many other members. Fingers crossed.

Have both KC Cruwear smooth G10 exclusives! I love the PM2 and Para 3 ...but I've been gravitating towards lighter knives recently. ..so I have to say the Para 3 version.

Been using this one primarily for months now. Love it. Scales are natural canvas micarta from RGT.

This Manix 2 is the CPM Cruwear knife that finds it's way into my pocket the most.

Eric spoke about a Cruwear Shaman in Amsterdam. I did not remember it. :eek: Thanks for bringing it up!
Don’t have further information. I hope it will be in the next reveal.

I only have two, but my favorite should be no suprise. Should there be a Native G10 and Shaman, I will buy both, today!

It would be a CQI Military if it ever happens. I had the KC Cruwear PM2 and sold it on a whim and really regret it. Really hoping some Cruwear models come out in 2019, specifically a CQI Military then a Native and PM2.
:spyder: CPM-Cruwear is the ideal knife steel. You may not like it, but this is what peak performance is made of.

There ya go, right answer. I only have one, the para 3 with dark gray smooth scales. I like it quite a lot.

I'd love to see a carbon fiber scale cruwear PM2 or para 3.

Atta boy! Can't let a beast like that go to waste in a box. You only live once! I was tempted to grab one last summer, but the $275 price tag on eBay made it hard to justify.
Currently have 20 :spyder: 's in 14 different steels.

Another vote for the diamond-weave Manix sprint.

Also had the Military and Para2 Cruwear sprints, but sold them off b/c the steel change wasn't enough to stop me from grabbing my left-hand variants every time.
