Unfortunately the blade steel isn't the best choice. :( During the last weeks more and more Opinels (no. 8 + 9, inox and carbon blades) find their way in my pocket, as I enjoy a lot thin blades for cutting t...

Re: SpydieWiki is down.

Kristi, I guess it's better to wait for your "GO" before we start with further processing of data. Otherwise I fear new inputs could be useless.

Those Pro Files look familiar 😉.
Yep, I hope so :) and meanwhile they often were handy to make dull edges sharp(er). I still like them a lot for emergency use.

Re: Guys who put lanyards on your knives, why?

I use only two fobs on my Spyderco folders, one a Ladybug for better grip and the second on an old yellow Rescue because the red fob makes a nice eye-catcher :rolleyes: .

While I love the Chaparral, I'm not sure how well its handle would scale up. To be honest, my "ideal" Spyderco would be a Stretch (preferably the size of a 1st Gen Stretch 1) with a 2mm thick (or thinner) VG-10 blade...
My thoughts and wish also ... will it ever happen?

Spydiewiki down?

Over the years spydiewiki.com was best encyclopedia for a fan of Spyderco. A lot of good work was needed to make it to it's unmatched status. So much the worse my feeling to see it down today :eek: (I have no glue why it's down) I hope this is only a temporary status and soon I and other people were...

The Bushcraft fits best for me as it has the most comfortable handle by far. No folder comes close to it.

Re: Would you be interested in a Spyderco Hudson Bay camp knife?

Yes. I would. I would also like to see Spyderco collaborate with the German company Eickhorn to make some knives, and, Glock,to make some knives. Just to adjust it - German is the common language in Austria, Germany and in a good part of Switzerland but however you will see it, Glock is an Austrian...
