Re: No more love for the Rhino ?

I love mine. The size is excellent, ergos work very well for me, and the blade shape is something I’ve never tried before. And it looks the business, the CF ply looks nice and feels great. One odd thing I will say is that the very end of the blade sticks up through the compression lock opening, so m...

Re: 2019 New Product Reveal!

I like this idea, Sal. More focused on what’s coming out soonish, and we have a better idea of when.

And I’m in for a Meerkat.

Re: Hard truths and observations

Thanks Sal for chipping in here and there. Rare a business owner ever talks about the underlying business issues and thoughts behind a price increase. It’s illuminating. As for mid-priced knives of high value quotient, what of the Cat, Chicago, Polestar, Alcyone, Persistence, Tenacious and the like?...

Re: What was your first Spyderco?

Serrated Endura 1, and (does this count?) a Benchmade AFCK back in ‘96. The Endura’s in a box somewhere; I carry the AFCK very occasionally since it’s so large.

Re: Spyderco used by Navy SEAL and British SAS

I have one of those AFCK’s. My second “tactical” knife, got it in... ‘95 I think? My first was a Gen 1 Endura.

Re: Efficient Missing Logo and Blade Steel ID

I’m pretty sure different knife manu’s might have “tells” when it comes to their output and Spyderco probably knows them. So get the fake, look for the tells, ID the factory.

Used it to grab a Rhino (finally) for less than $100 shipped.

Re: If you could resurrect one discontinued model what would it be?

Scorpius. I really liked how off-the-wall it looked, and the handle must have been a joy to, well, handle.

Re: Pakkawood Endura HAP40 exclusive at KC

Preordered a Delica. This and the sprint Caly will pretty much do for my LBK needs along with my Cat.

Re: Why does Spyderco allow this?

I have an ATS-34 AFCK from around '94-'95, and it looks more like a Spyderco than any other non-Spyderco knife I've ever seen, from the hole to the blade shape to the overall handle ergonomics. Pretty sure Benchmade had a license from Spyderco for those things though - I think I remember the BM cata...

Re: Been carrying my Cat, again.

I love my Cat as well. A Taichung made Cat, with the same upgrades the Rhino is getting, would be a no-brainer.

Re: Reinhold Rhino Update

That looks excellent. I like how the blade folds down neatly into the handle. So long as the price isn't outrageous, like $110-$120, I'm on.

Re: Reinhold Rhino Update

I'm still excited, make no mistake, but my excitement is tempered by the higher price. Which I will wait to see, by the way, before I decide whether or not to cancel my nonexistent pre-order. ;)
