Re: New reveal policy: is it the end of an era?

I don't have Facebook, Instagram, Twitter. None of those trendy things. I use this forum as my source, and have yet to miss ANY exclusive or sprint release since I've been here for close to a year now! This place is so on top of things, no need for anything else when it comes to Spyderco's Your pos...

Re: What's the big deal with this Kapara ?

I loved it, but I found the handle to be too thin(height) for me and it pinched my hand when I opened it. If it was taller and the lock was moved slighty, It would have been perfect for me. If your hand fits it right, it will be glorious!!! Agree with this assessment. It's a good design but not a g...

Re: Where is the smock?!?!?

Threads like this is one of the reasons why Spyderco has said no more pre-announcements or updates about new models.

Re: Spyderco Military and Paramilitary in LC100N and FRN: My new grails.

I’m confused... Can something that doesn’t exist be a grail? I thought grails are something you hoped to own but don’t due to price or scarcity, etc.

Re: Spyderco and Abel join forces

I would like to see one in person as well.

The Native titanium was $420 MSRP so assuming Abel is asking MSRP I don't think the price is out of line considering how tiny the number made will likely be and all the labor in the anodizing.

Me too. This one totally flew under the radar. Pretty much anything in green is an auto-buy for me.

Re: Knives you didn't expect to like so much, or vice versa

Pleasant surprise: Sliverax - like it so much it earned a spot in my EDC rotation. It fits the hand so well and the slightly negative blade angle makes cutting tasks a breeze. Really hoping there is a sprint/exclusive in the future. Runner-up: Lil Nilakka - Flash batch "collectability" be damned thi...

Re: Smock Flipper

I cancelled my preorder last week. The button compression lock is the most interesting thing about this model. I hope Spyderco introduces it elsewhere. The "Smock" look was always borderline for me and there are more intriguing things coming (eg Paul Alexander Ikuchi).

Re: I wish spyderco offered deep carry clips

I have to admit that $25 for a small piece of metal with a bend in it seems quite excessive. You can buy a titanium spork from Amazon for $8 that has a lot more material. It's too bad they couldn't come to some sort of licensing agreement. Spyderco could make stainless ones for 30 cents a piece, gi...

Re: Help me pick a Spydie flipper, please

I didn't even know about the Smock before. It looks good, if a bit on the large side. I find myself not carrying my larger knives, these days. (Desk job) That has me leaning more toward the Mantra 2 and 3. The Mantra 2 had the slimmer pocket profile, but had some issues, which I'm not sure will eve...

It's a 20% discount, which is a good deal if you want those two models.

Re: Help me pick a Spydie flipper, please

Depending on how soon you want something, the Smock looks very interesting.

The Sliverax is the only flipper I have in my EDC rotation. I like it that much. It has the newest design ball bearing washers so the action is great.

Re: Lil' Native Comp Lock – some thoughts after over 3 months of EDC

The Lil Native is 2.45" vs. 2.95" blade and 5.92" vs 6.95" overall length compare to the Native so we're not talking some massive difference here. The regular Native is in a tweener size that doesn't fit well as EDC solution for me. If I want something more than the size of the Lil Native I reach fo...

I question the wisdom of telling less experienced forumites to make adjustments to knives especially ones not even properly cleaned, lubed and broken in. It's their business if and when they do but recommending it as a first action should be avoided.

So what is your recommendation?

Re: Lil' Native Comp Lock – some thoughts after over 3 months of EDC

Lil Native is in my EDC rotation. Fits the hand so well and is such a great tool for its size.
