Re: What's Next for the Chaparral?

The Chaparral is all about showcasing different handle materials. Is it still, though? The latest FRN model seems to have woken people up to the utility of that size and thickness blade; as well as the ergonomics. According to the product page it is. However, I do totally agree that the FRN almost ...

Re: 2019 Spyderco Catalog Predictions

Hoping for more Cruwear and LC200N in the new year! And predicting the first CPM-3V folder! Hoping to see a Native, Native LW, Manix LW, CQI Military, and a Shaman (Micarta?) in Cruwear. DLC would be great for any and all of these. A Manix LW Salt (CBBL or Backlock) in LC200N would be a nice complim...

Re: Have you gotten your dream blade of 2018?

Not really my dream blades, but my Spyderhawk and Chaparral LW are seeing a lot of use and carry. I'm really loving them both. The Native Salt is the one I have been waiting for all year. Hopefully soon.

Re: What's Next for the Chaparral?

Only plan is for handle materials. No plan to change the steel. sal :( This is too bad. I've been carrying my Chaparral LW a lot lately (in my pocket right now) and I keep thinking how I'd love a Salt version for food/beach, an S110V/Maxamet for cardboard cutting, and a Cruwear for EDC. I do get th...

I personally would love to see a Salt version in LC200N. They have all the materials in Taichung to make that happen.

+1 A Chappie Salt in LC200N would be awesome! Blacked out would be even awesomer! :)

Re: Manix BL Discontinued

I always wonder if a knife like this doesnt sell well because it is another black S30V model and everyone is waiting for a sprint to buy one. Im in that boat. Now ill probably buy one at discount. I would have loved a Cruwear version of this. Heck, even an S30V DLC would have been nice. Or DLC BD1.

Re: Interest in Cruwear

I'd be interested in seeing more side-by-side results with M4. Crucible's own charts show M4 at the same toughness with better wear resistance, so other than ease of sharpening I'm having a hard time understanding the hype. (I've never had trouble sharpening M4, so I've stayed off the bandwagon.) T...

Re: KnifeWorks Exclusive Manix 2 Gray G-10 Handle in 52100 Carbon Steel [images fixed]

I'm not normally sold on knives by their appearance, but I have to admit that once I had this one in hand, I was smitten. It's one sharp (looking) knife. :) Yeah, this grey/black might me my favorite combo aesthetically. It looks fantastic. I hope we see more models in this combo from KC. Some Cruw...

Re: Sal, would a Native 5 LW in Cruwear

2019 is the year of Cruwear...I can feel it in my bones. And number one on my list is a Native LW. I just hope it doesn't take as long to see as the Native Salt.

Re: Updated shaman sprint steel poll

I voted 3V many moons ago and I stand by my vote, but I definitely would love to see a St Nick's Red G10 DLC 4V and DLC Rex45 with Burnt Orange G10. Ill definitely be grabbing a Cruwear Micarta if that comes to fruition.

Re: Updated shaman sprint steel poll

And please no black DLC, that would ruin the look + cruwear doesn't need it. I can't wait for it. I dont consider DLC to be about "needing" it for corrosion protection. S30V certainty "needs" DLC less in that context than Criwear yet there are a ton pf DLC S30V blades. I believe it was originally a...

Re: Can't open my St Nicks Para 3

They might just on international orders. This. I would call them and ask. They may even go so far as to thread lock the pivot themselves, but like I said I'd like to at least know this ahead of time. It's really hard for me to believe Spyderco did this, this is the first I've ever seen of a pivot s...

Re: Need Your Input - Which to Buy?

Native 5 LW, but order the Orange/DLC S90V sprint from Cutlery Shoppe while it is still available. Or grab a blacked out S35VN Native LW from a dealer online while you still can.
