You've got a lot of nerve, Shawn. Lotta nerve. Don't let me catch you around these parts after sundown. Savvy?

Re: Where's the 3V?

Eventually I'll pick up one of their offerings in 4V. Last time I got booted in the middle of checkout. C'est la vie.

^^^^^
I'm with you, Joe.

I'll also look forward to adding some 4V when the opportunity presents so I can compare with my 3V and Cru-Wear.

Re: Where's the 3V?

While 3v may not be thee optimal folding knife steel, most aren't. Some steels are better for specific applications, but a good numbee of blade steels are simply outclassed by one steel or another, yet we still see a wide array of options. Knife enthusiasts like variety. 3v is absolutely good enoug...

Re: Where's the 3V?

Another fan of 3V. I only have one, a small utility fixed blade made by Ed Schott for me years ago...but it's my most used knife around the house. Easy to sharpen, tough and not a hint of oxidation.

If Spyderco puts 3V in a pattern I like, it's something I'd look forward to.

Nobody outside of the Spyderco factory and management team know when any knife will start shipping. Even the Spyderco Factory Outlet store employees don’t know. https://res.cloudinary.com/teepublic/image/private/s--NzCDQrsz--/t_Resized%20Artwork/c_fit,g_north_west,h_1054,w_1054/co_ffffff,e_outline:...

Had to look up "esteemed" (new English word for me), but now that I did I am honored, my friend... ;)
Gern geschehen. :cool:

Re: Shaman Set Up

If you want it to feel as smooth as possible during the "break in period" you can put some good light oil on the pivot. Personally, I just oil and use, and basically never adjust the pivot at all. Ditto. I have several that fall closed. Others that don't. I lube the pivot as a matter of course upon...

Hi Julia, 10 years too late now. I try to get things going about 10 years ahead so when the time comes, we're already established and know what we're doing. The UKPK is such an example. We designed and built the knife when the UK changed their laws. Sales were slow initially, but now our Slipits ha...
