    I don't have any trouble opening mine, and I have some pretty bad arthritis in my hands. N690Co is my favorite steel. The Pingo and Squeak are two of my favorite knives, and I'm eager to get a...

    Excellent, thanks. I never noticed the "other" in the pull down list; it scrolls pretty quickly.

    Whenever I get a new Spyderco knife, I always go to the product registration page on the Spyderco website and add it to my holdings. My KnifeCenter exclusive Native in CTS-XHP/Brown FRN, however,...

    Got my bottle opener Clipitool in the mail on Friday. It is a perfect knife for carrying to parties, social events or anywhere else you don't need a lot of blade, but do need an opener. The blade...

    I have an orange and a black, and both are centered pretty well. I haven't noticed any give or play, but, since I have to carry something tiny (Manbug) while working on a university campus, I only...

    If preorders count, I'm waiting on the Spy-DK (in black) and the Clipitool with bottle opener from the Knife Center. Will shell out for a Battle Station as soon as GPKnives starts taking orders. ...

    Actually, I can see why Phillips head screws on the pocket clip might be preferable. A lot of folks who buy any particular knife probably aren't "knife knuts" or collectors with tool boxes full of...

    Great, thanks Blerv. That gives me enough to go on. Also good to know that my aesthetic aversion to stonewashed and beadblasted finishes lines up with my preference for rust free blades!

    stainless or not?

    Anyone out there know where I might find a relatively authoritative list that tells which steels are stainless and which are not? better still if it ranks their corrosion resistance.

    The Knife Center already has some of the new models listed for pre-order. I ordered the Spy-DK and the Clipitool with the bottle opener. I thought the list prices on them were quite reasonable, and...

    Mine arrived today. The back lock doesn't protrude like the one in the KnifeCenter's photos. I already had the black FRN in S30V, so this one was a bit of a luxury. Gotta say that I much prefer...

    Sure enough, I found a Rock Lobster on BladeForums. Can't say I care for the foliage green color, and dislike that G-10 texture, but it is still a pretty nice knife. Maybe the handle is a little...

    I've become an Anso knife fan, for sure, and would love to see more Spydercos by him. Not sure that just blowing up the Pingo would qualify as a new Anso, though. I like the Pingo size as it it,...

    While further pondering H-1 versions, it occurs to me that none of them seem to be in G-10. Now, that's a good thing as far as I'm concerned. I can't stand the feel of G-10; it's like a wooden...

    Manbug! I'd like to see the Pingo in H-1, too (but with a back lock added, really).

    Is it possible to make the entire knife out of H-1? If so, a Dragonfly2 all metal with the wire clip. Maybe...
