This is so true....so the real question actually answered in this thread, like in countless other threads of numerous titles before, is: "Fellow dudes, what's your favourite Spyderco knife?!"
All of em.
if it’s possible, I say replace the standard s30v models with magnacut.
S30V was designed to be a cutlery steel.Agreed.
If I’m not mistaken, 154CM was designed to be a knife steel - as was s30V.
Both of them were implemented into a lot of models for a lot of brands.
Magnacut’s creation follows that same tradition; designed to be a knife steel.
I say, here here!
Put it in everything.
Make it the new norm if it’s so great.
Sometimes I think about what Spydercos I would do dealer exclusive runs of even if I was independently wealthy and could afford to commission 'dealer' exclusive runs.
Last night I was thinking... I'd really like to do a Gayle Bradley Bowie in Magnacut with lager G-10 handles over white liners, and a fixed Lum Tanto in Magnacut with polished green linen micarta handles over red fiber liners, and a Perrin Street Beat.
Honestly I'd like it to become a staple steel for their fixed blades.
A few well known custom makers have now done some folders in MagnaCut, and at Bladeshow they had a Sebenza in it. Out of the production brands, I have to think Spyderco will be the first to start using MagnaCut. At least I hope.
This is so true.
The Persian is one of Larrin's favourite models, and mine as well, so despite the difficulty getting Seki knifemakers to work with American steel I would love to see a new, thinner Persian in MagnaCut. (I have the red polished g-10 sprint with bolsters, and although I don't like how thick the edge is from the factory I love the knife.)
