    From my point of view, CE have the serrations in the worst possible place. The place on the knife I like to use for power cuts. So if I am going to use the knife for work on wood or similar, its...

    Plain edge holding with H1 is nothing special. Serrated is fantastic.

    Spyderco just disco'd the serrated Military. Probably as the fully serrated Mil is not as popular. I have one and its a great...

    Reported as well.

    Its quite annoying that its an American seller who is claiming this is a genuine Spyderco. It almost gives the advert a sense of being genuine.

    I wonder if its just a poorly...

    To be fair, the blade shape would be best as a scaled down version of the Mule IMHO. I see it as the Spyderco blade shape anyway.

    To my eyes its almost as much of a trademark as the SpyderHole.

    Folder, heck yes.

    Budget knife, yes.

    Native, Delica or caly make a lot of sense if you are thinking a locking knife.

    UKPK Lightweight otherwise, though I am not sure if that would be a...

    Yes it will though I find the bits provided are very weak and bend easily.

    Also your Spyderco will bite you afterwards for sullying it with a product from that company.;):D

    I have found it is a bit harder to sharpen if you are using flat and wide bench stones. You have to use a bit more care than normal.

    If you are using a Sharpmaker and strop. Makes no difference to...

    to me, the Sebenza is the father frame lock knife.

    If the knife has no outerscale covering the handle AND lockbar like a liner lock, then its not the liner doing the locking. Its the framebar,...

    You know, try as I might, I can't help thinking the attitude of the poster and the general post on the forum rather than contacting Spyderco directly and sending it in. Well it strikes true with me...

    Its a curious situation for me. Orange is aesthetically not at all pleasing. In my opinion anyway. It does have a safety appearance in some regards, but in the same manner, it draws attention....

    All my knives in S30V are from the early days of its introduction.

    2005-2006 ish.

    I have not bought a knife in S30V recently.

    Oh and just to add, every time I resharpen my UKPK, I of course removed these microchips. Only for them to return with use.

    I have now put a secondary bevel on the knife at 40 degree's inclusive...

    2 new models for Spyderco/Byrd.

    First knife would be a non locking Byrd slipit. Sub 3" blade with the finger choil and one hand opening. The handle would also have a...

    Polished bevels do matter.

    Spyderco knives do not come with polished bevels due to cost. It costs money to bring an edge to a polished state. Time, belts and it all adds up.
