    I read that on the forums this weekend, but I cannot remember where. I'll see if I can find it again. It's possible that I misunderstood.

    Thank you for your kind words. No idea on which Crucible might be comparable to CTS 204P. I know that Carpenter is discontinuing 204P for some reason, so future versions of the Southard will need a...

    Southard Black Blade Review

    I have been intrigued with the idea of a flipper. I never owned one before, but had a chance to play with some custom flippers about a week ago. The Southard had an overall shape and design that...

    Thanks, Sal. Will the scales be brown like the prototype or something more attractive (no hint of bias there, eh)?

    Thanks sal, and sorry for coming late to the party. I'm not a fan of brown at all, but would definitely pick up a buffed CF Stretch, especially if it had a ZDP-189 blade. My current favorite Spydie...

    The black blade Southard is VERY nice. The fit and finish are perfect, including the uniformity of the DLC coating on the blade and Ti scales. The ball bearing detent holding the blade closed is...

    Although I love my Stretches, I'm not a fan of the proposed brown. I will hold out for CF or something in black or blue. CF would be my first choice.

    Looks like surface oxidation. The discoloration follows the scale contours, hence only occurs on the area of the blade most exposed to air, moisture, etc. Flitz is an awesome, very fine polish that...

    Your SM will get ZDP sharp again, but it will take time. The trick with ZDP-189 is not to let it get dull. That said, Spyderco will sharpen it for $5. I usually takes just over a week. That's a lot...
