The Endura and Delica are two of Spyderco’s most enduring models. Each is currently in their fourth generation and better than ever. Now joining this lineup is the brand-new Endela, which sits right between these two in terms of size. Not too big, and not too small, it perfectly bridges the gap to create a brand new EDC knife, and it just feels right.Continue Reading

Today we’re gonna be looking at two kings of the ultra-light pocket knife scene. The Benchmade Bugout versus the Spyderco Para 3 Lightweight. Despite the difference in price we can see these two knives being cross shopped very easily as they sport some of the same elements to appeal to folks looking for high-performance cutting in a package that won’t weigh you down.
A spinoff of the ever-popular Paramilitary 2, the Spyderco Para 3 is a little bit smaller, and in my opinion, its proportions are just about perfect. Although we only get about two and a half inches of sharpened edge, it feels like more in the hand, and the handle is still nice and big, offering a full grip for big jobs. The blade is instantly recognizable as a Spyderco. It has a broad profile, a full flat grind and their signature round opening hole. We’re going to break down what makes this such a great knife for everyday carry and why you should add one to your rotation.
Modern steel technology has grown leaps and bounds in the last couple of decades and it’s changed the way we experience our knives. Today we can achieve long-lasting edge retention that was unheard of just a generation ago. Remember your grandfather’s old pocket knife that was sharpened down to just a sliver of a blade? Well, if his old knife was made with one of these steels there would still be a lot of usable blade left because he wouldn’t have needed to sharpen it so often. The best part of this new crop of steels is that a lot of the best options have been coming down in price, making high-performance even more attainable. We’ve rounded up eight knives with eight supersteels and all of them can be had for less than 150 bucks. Sometimes even far less! Continue Reading
Spyderco has become famous for their precise edge geometries and for their instantly recognizable leaf-shaped blades with trademarked Round Hole Opener, an elegant solution for a one hand opening blade, allowing left or right handed use without the need for protruding thumb studs.
They have some of the most hardcore of knife fans out there and for good reason. They aren’t afraid of taking risks. The way they pulled together emerging elements in their early years such as synthetic handles, pocket clips, and one hand opening blades and merged everything together really changed the landscape of the knife industry in ways that can still be seen today.
The big news from Buck last year was a comprehensive update of the Buck 110 Folding Hunter and Buck 112 Ranger. Dubbed the 110 Slim and 112 Slim, these new knives are thinner, lightweight, and the Pro versions sport high-performance blade steel and handle material. As such, the natural competition for these models has shifted, and we think the Spyderco Endura and Delica are now the perfect rivals. Don’t believe us? After the jump, we’ll go through these models feature by feature to see how they stack up. Continue Reading
