Let me rephrase. The designs Spyderco decides to go with are a bit strange.

I agree. The looks of some of their lights leave me scratching my head sometimes. I end up not buying them because of that. I know I shouldn’t let looks alone sway my decision but, that is easier said than done sometimes. On the other end of that, I have bought knives that I thought looked awesome but upon having them in hand, got put in a drawer and forgotten about. CRKT Pilar is one knife that comes to mind. I loved the looks and ordered one on that alone. It doesn’t fit in my hand very well at all and I end up dropping it before I get it open most of the time. So now it resides in a drawer next to another dozen that have the same problem.

Maybe I should start buying knives I think are ugly and giving them a fair shake.

I’ve got a few folders over the yrs.
Just remember. Folders ARE folders.
IE lock letting go and fingers off. potentially.

I have a few Ganzo’s and Puma’s.

ALWAYS do all heavy work with a fixed blade.
Me. Puma, Martiini and power saw blades too.

77yrs. still got all my fingers but left hand first coupla pinkies have a few
slice marks (scars) from Deckie days on North Sea Trawlers in ’50’s. gutting out the Cod for boxing/icing.

No matter how “good”, expensive. A folder is. It’s still a very sharp blade. sitting
Hinged. on the end of a plastic thing,or coupla narrow sheets of ally, steel.
Looking at that post of the Spyder/Benchmade snapped in half handle, should stir the embers. Food and trimming/shaving things only.

I’ve got a 200gram Browning 3 1\4 in blade. Solid as. still use fixed for serious work.
I’d hate to see any of you kids damaging yourselves.
AUS8/440C steel more than fine enuff for them.

PS Above.
Thank you for the “Pilar” notes above. I have it in this weeks purchases.
Not any more. I have a mid sized paw.

I agree, though the huge ass folder i carry, it actually have a secondary “steel plug” to put clear cross it to secure the big heavy blade.
And i like that as i don’t have much trust in the liner lock it have.
BUT that “plug” are in the glove box of my car as i have no plans for heavy use and really the knife need a sharpening bad as it never was that sharp from the factory.
I must say the large size don’t bother me at all, which i feared a little when i got it, cuz compared to the Ganzo auto i used to carry its gigantic.

Brute folder knife without dude.
But, a folder knife is not a fixed knife. I have a video exactly with that thought, in my channel.

I have fixed blade knifes, that well truth be told it is more a knife shaped axe Big Smile But its not that often i got a valid excuse to carry one of those.
I spent many a class in school drawing knifes, big fixed blade knifes, so much so the teachers got worried and i had to visit the school psychiatrist.
And then teachers left me alone after that, as i think the shrink confirmed that yes i was indeed not like the other kids, and back then there was no help so problems was just sidelined.
To this day 37 years later i still call my 9.5 years of school as the biggest trauma / nightmare i have ever encountered, you know how some kids can home in on a kid that’s not quite like them.
When i drive past my old school i always roll down the car window and spit in its direction.

Ordered one this morning. I like the design. I would like to find a larger size later with a lock of some sort.

You’re welcome! Smile The black/orange G10 with the grey bead blasted liners and pocket clip make a nice combo.

I have tons of large and small blades that get exactly “zero” use. Because I never do anything. Because I’m lazy. But some are really cool — mostly Ontario, Gerber, Cold Steel…
My EDC knife (if I actually carried it) is a Cold Steel Vaquero.
I’d like to get a Glock knife and a Cold Steel Peacemaker III (boot knife); but the truth is, I have no use for them. I just like them.

I had never had one of their knives before. I liked the look of it and took a chance. Not large sized but not small either. Fits in the hand nice. Nice edge on it. Not super thin but not super fat either. Opens smoothly and locks up nicely. I really like the blade vs handle contrast. I will give it a workout and see how it holds up. I’m not super hard on knives but I will do my best to give it hell.

Think it was $34 on eBay. I could have probably gotten it cheaper overseas or Amazon but, I didn’t want to wait on overseas and I am not using Amazon till they get deliveries figured out in my area.

I’ve got an Amazon gift card burning a hole in my pocket and was going to pull the trigger on one of these, but for some reason they don’t sell knives to people in New York State. Angry Facepalm Sad

Maybe I’ll get it from another source.

Here is the link to the ebay ad I got it from. Atlantic Knife Co is the seller. They have their own website too with lots of knives, I just so happen to run across it on ebay. They shipped fast.
