I'll be looking forward to your opinion on that. For now, I'll just say that the "R" was one Spyderco I tried very hard to love.
Haha I was going to ask if any of you other guys had your order wrapped in a bright yellow towel. I thought that was kind of odd but I can always use another garage towel.

Hmm I've ordered from them before but don't remember getting a towel. It could be I just put it in my 5 gal pail that's full of garage towels and forgot about itbearfacedkiller wrote: ↑Tue Nov 26, 2019 12:17 pm
Did you ever handle a D'allara 1? It had contouring like you're describing.Doeswhateveraspidercan wrote: ↑Tue Nov 26, 2019 9:52 amReceived mine last night, boys and gals what we have here is a straight up PM2 Killer. At the very least a serious rival!
Thank you National Knives super fast shipping!
Sal a suggestion if I may?
After carrying a custom Buck110 in 440C which has a pocket clip as can be seen in the community sharpening journal on this site I have discovered what I think would make an improvement in allot of Spyderco models.
Let’s see if I can explain this.
Most spyderco handles are well pretty much 2 dimensional in a way with some contouring. The effect is slimming but is like holding thin slabs in the hand.
Since we are experimenting with this model I have a suggestion.
How about introducing a bit of a Palm swell on the sides to fill out the hand, it would not take much or add too much width as the knifes handles is all ready so slim and narrow side to side the current handle ergonomics are already perfect in every other way.
I also think something like that would improve aesthetics but mainly I am going for a missing feeling of dimension in the hand.
The Paramilitary 2 is a variation of Sal's C81 Para-Military. Thus the reason both Sal & Eric's makers marks are on the blade
It is indeed curious I am planing to take down the secondary edge and primary edge Murray Carter style.Vivi wrote: ↑Wed Nov 27, 2019 9:39 pmI've been pleasantly surprised by my VG10 Police LW. I always liked the steel but I swear this Police is holding an edge longer than my Police 3 did. Maybe they are running it a bit harder these days? Or maybe sharpening the two knives differently is the cause? I ran a polished, convexed edge on my P3, and so far I've been touching up the factory edge on my medium stone on the LW. I'll reprofile it someday.
