Asking for help, for a second time!

Postby Gump12 » Thu Apr 25, 2019 1:08 pm

Hi Gents,

You guys were awesome for advice on my first ever knife purchase.

I am now onto my second knife and this one will be an EDC knife whereas the last was a rescue.

I have been wanting to get a UKPK for absolutely ages (fits all legal requirements where I live).

I'm not sure if we are allowed to do links, however as its a link to a knife exclusive to the website I dont think there should be any issues.

https://www.heinnie.com/spyderco-heinni ... nknife-g10

Spyderco Heinnie Haynes® UK Penknife G10 with red scales and CPM S30V steel for £80

or do I pay £111 and get the Spyderco UK Penknife Lightweight Dark Blue CPM S110V?

Which steel is better? I was about to buy the dark blue one until I saw the limited run red knife.

Whats your views guys!?

Get the exclusive while you can. The regular production knife can wait.

Do you have a preference between FRN and G-10?

Like Spydergirl88 said, get the exclusive first.

For that price I would get both!

S110V is harder to sharpen than S30V...

That will depend not only on the applications but in your sharpening skills and equipment as well.
Not saying you can't sharpen but as you're asking advice for a second knife I'm assuming you don't have much experience with it (sorry if I'm wrong).
I see many people who are new to knives trying to get the latest, best edge retention, hottest steel... on my opinion that's a trap.

I'm with the others, get the red G10 handle exclusive while you can. S110V will have better edge retention, but S30V is still a darn good steel. G10 and S30V is a better overall package than S110V and FRN, IMO.

Yeah I'd totally go with what others have said and snag the exclusive while you can, I'm pretty much at the point where I'll only spend on exclusives/sprints because I reckon I can always get a stock model.

Guys, thanks for the super fast response. As I said, I am new! I am using the spyderco sharp maker and have very limited experience. I have heard g10 bound around lots before but again I havn't had much hands on with different knifes.

Thanks for the super fast responses, I will get it on my next payday! :D

Thanks for all the help guys :)

Definitely get the Heinnie Haynes exclusive. I liked it so much I bought a second after I got the first.

Heinnie Haynes. Very good knife. See the long thread on it. The regular one is awesome too, so don’t think it isn’t.
- best wishes, Jazz.

Seeing as how you're new, s30v is honestly no steel to scoff at. It's far better than steels like 8cr13mov for instance. And it really is a joy to sharpen. If you're looking to branch out and try other kinds make sure you look for ones that are on the easy side in terms of bringing a crisp edge back. As you practice you'll get to a point where you can work with super steels and maybe get the necessary equipment needed to sharpen.

As far as the handles go, G10 is fantastic. It feels solid and substantial. I love frn, but g10 is great.
I've also heard that the exclusive has a CQI'd back spring. So that's something to keep in mind too.

How is the back spring on this knife? Is it strong and snappy like the Pingo, or easy and mushy like the Tern and Squeak?

One more vote for the G10 model. In my opinion all G10 UKPKs are a classic combination and will be highly sought-after when they sell out. Also, I think S30V should be more than adequate for the type of cutting you'd likely be doing with a knife that size. If you like it you could always pick up the lightweight S110V model and give that steel a try later on.

Strong and snappy. Better half stop than previous versions as well.

OP - you can’t go wrong with any of the current UKPK’s. The HH version is a limited run and definitely worth getting whilst it’s still available.

The action is perfect. It stays open strongly and opens easily.

I didnt read the other replies, ill just give my own thoughts. S30V will be a better steel for MOST people. Its far easier to work with than S110V. S110V is significantly harder, which makes sharpening quite a bit more challenging, and you really should look at diamond abrasives for that reason. It holds its edge a really long time though. For a regular guy ( me) the S30V is much easier to work with BUT, the S110V is an EDC for me. Every single day no matter what is in my other pocket. I learned how to work the S110V and diamond abrasives and LOVE it! If you are an experienced sharpener the S110V is in the super steel class that can really frustrate some people. (Like maxamet) but i find it very rewarding once i learned to work with it. I hope this helps you on your journey! Be blessed!

This knife sounds nice. That bright red is too much for me, though. Darker would have been more to my taste. Still, a lot of people love this color of G10 and it is a nice knife.
