And yet, some folks think the Taichung logos look better because they appear to be more intricate than the ones on Golden or Seki Spydercos.
That would be me. I just like the Taichung logo better and of all things the web like design.

Re: 2018 Alistair Phillips!

I am not going to add nothing new about it (and less with my poor domain of the English language :rolleyes:), it has been perfectly described by many of you before. To me, it’s a surprising and very well done design and it emanates quality where you look at it... The only thing that I have modified...

Hey Rob,

That stepped Ti has no curved lines. The entire design is made up of straight lines. Not only is the design unique, the machining is exquisite.

Re: Two questions for Sal regarding the Chaparral design

I like the leaf shape blade and find it aesthetically pleasing. Straightening the spine to be more of a clip point would make it less so.

Re: 2018 Alistair Phillips!

I just received my Kapara this afternoon and it’s all the good stuff everybody has mentioned already. A beautiful design by Alistair and another example of Spyderco/Taichung excellence. I don’t find the lock bar overly stiff. It really has a nice balance between the lock bar stiffness and detent loa...

Unfortunately, Sal's "soon" statement was over 3 weeks ago. I'm asking for an update if one is available.

For some of us three weeks is "soon". ;) Time just goes by way too fast.

Most RG6 these days is aluminum or tinned copper for the braid, then aluminum or aluminized plastic film for the inner shield (sometimes two layers of braid and/or aluminum foil) then copper plated steel for the center conductor , this allows the cable to be strung farther without an additional sup...

Great news! This will be my only Spyderco purchase of the year. Hopefully they are out and in stock at Blade West!

That's pretty much where I am this year...unless some surprise comes up that I just have to have.

Re: Stonewashed Blade

I like the ground/satin finish, it adds character. Stonewashing just erases or hides it. If stonewash is what the N5 maxamet blade is, I prefer it to all other finishes. You can put a satin finish on any blade in 10 minutes with sandpaper and a flat surface. The problem with that is, it will look li...

If you can appreciate better materials, fit and finish go with the CF Chap, you won't regret it.
