Re: Spyderco 2018 Lists: Delivered & Upcoming

Re: REX 45 Military In Stock!

As much as I want to try out Rex 45... I get the feeling that the Bladehq M4 DLC exclusive is around the corner <.<
I guess you have to decide whether you want the sprint, or the exclusive.. how often do exclusives come back though?

Re: What should I buy to practice sharpening on?

Hey guys, So I have very limited experience sharpening.. I was able to use a wet stone to sharpen my tenacious after I dulled the crap out of it... but now that I got some serious steel I want to step my game up. I'm thinking of taking the plunge and buying an edge pro during Black Friday (if any de...

Re: Recommendation needed - Hunter/Fisherman Fixed Blade for retirement gift.

If not that... you can still find the bushcraft, but that would not be an ideal fishman's knife. However, it is an excellent oudoor woodman's tool.

Re: Recommendation needed - Hunter/Fisherman Fixed Blade for retirement gift.

If you can find the sprig at a good price still... hop on it! They sold like candy when they got discontinued, but it's literally a bird and trout knife.

Re: How do you determine which Spyderco is best for you?

For me I consider several factors, some of which you listed already: - My intended use for the knife (daily, or hard use outdoor) - Overall size -Blade size is pretty much based off of what I intend to use it for. -Ergonomics of the handle / handle material can be a factor. - Locking mechanism, I re...

Re: Emotional State based on Spyderco Availability?

I think I experienced this with the M4 Yojimbo release from BladeHQ... I was following it for a bit, was stoked when I had the release date... but around that time I had other financial obligations. So there it went and my first reaction was "well, sh**", but I got over it quickly because in reality...

Re: 2018 Alistair Phillips!

I like the looks of it. I am wondering if it would replace my Para Military 2 ? Since Alistair had kitchen tasks in mind when he designed the blade and the handle appears smaller and perhaps better contoured than the Para Military 2 it may be a better choice for my uses. But, it costs 50% more than...

Re: Would you really want LC200N in a non-Salt knife?

I really like the potential of LC200N, it is practically impervious to anything but is susceptible to galvanic corrosion with contact from certain other metals. I am really excited to see what they do with it, I picked up the Spydiechef after waiting on the new shipment for what seemed like forever....

Re: SpyderThrowers ETA?

No lie... I bought a set of medium throwers because I thought they looked amazing, and I wanted to get into the art of throwing knives. I brought them along my twenty mile hike in Yosemite, as well as, the Shaman but didn't get a chance to throw them at a target :( But the shaman got plenty of use o...

Re: 2018 Discontinued List

Just got the bushcraft yesterday... Man I cannot put it down, This is my first Spyderco fixed blade and, the quality as expected, is top notch. I didn't know they originally made this model with maple wood... It looked amazing, but to my knowledge it ended up not panning out too well. Great on Spyde...

You will be driving the wagon when you start anticipating sprint runs of your favorite model <.< Welcome to the forum, as to the knives you are considering...

Spyderco Bushcraft Vs. Sustain

Hey guys, So with the discontinued model sale going on, and now this Ebay 10% coupon valid until tomorrow 10/27/2018.. I'm torn between getting either the Bushcraft, or the Sustain because they are both going for 170 to 180 bucks! Both are excellent, and offer different qualities that I would enjoy ...

Re: BHQ Military CPM M4 DLC Exclusive

Wow, they went straight for the "Ghost face" configuration and skip the Satin... I don't own a military but been wanting to try one (love the pm2 and shaman) this may be the one.... or the CTS 240P if a good deal comes my way :)

Maybe Ebay coupons will save the day in the future, until then... we have the Native 5 Salt to keep us on edge.
