    The venerable Caly 3!

    Thanks for the giveaway.

    Not totally sure of the numbers, but it's mostly lockbacks. Second place is slip-joints.

    Hmmm.. I'd much rather jigged bone, a bit smaller, no clip, and a slip-joint. Still, I love the Kiwi design so I may have to get one.

    As an aside, I'm surprised to hear that people feel that the...

    I'll also throw in a vote for a Caly 3 or (and?) Caly 3.5 in 2mm spine thickness.

    Sounds like a dream come true, actually.

    Man, all of these are making me sore I wasn't into the knife game earlier. Especially all of those discontinued Schempps!

    Yes, be prepared for a long battle if you try and go for reprofiling with the brown stones.

    I looove my Persians, and they're the only Schempp's that I have so far. Had to get both sizes... although I definitely want to pick up some of the older micarta/bolstered ones -- a bit classier than...

    Yessir, they are some pretty sounding knives. I think my favorite may be my brown sprint run Calypso, man that lockback is authoritative. Although the nishijin "R" is probably my loudest, and every...

    Go with the Dragonfly, I don't think you'll be disappointed. I enjoy VG10 a good deal more than 8cr and only really see Spyderco's Chinese line as suitable for a first foray into the knife world --...

    In my experience, it's very very easy to sharpen to a very nice, razor edge. But it does not hold that edge for an adequate enough amount of time to perform as a work knife.

    I don't have any qualms with the Spyderhole. I haven't had a Dyad in hand yet, but based on the video with Eric it seems comfortable enough with the way they designed it, as well as very smooth to...

    With jeans it's a big less comfortable -- especially with larger knives, in which case it can be unfeasible in some pants. For work/around the house I wear 5.11 pants quite a bit and the back pocket...

    Yes, it's a tough call. It is a very interesting and attractive design, and the gray G-10 does seem to really work for it. This one is a tough call -- glad it won't be out for a while!

    Thoughts on the C-44 Dyad?

    So, the new Dyad sprint run is slated to come out sometime this year. I know this is a very classic model, but, like the knife world in general, it is new to me.

    However, I can't quite decide how...

    Ah, nice. Yeah, I've got the original. I love it dearly, but do wonder if I might love it more a bit lighter.
