Re: Glow In the Dark Manix 2 LW?

I am totally in. I love glow in the dark stuff. I am about to coat my garage floor and plan on adding some GITD blue flake into the mix! :) I think a neon yellow or green GITD FRCP with a DLC LC200N FFG blade would make for an AWESOME Manix LW Salt! Surfgringo has mentioned before how he would like...

Re: Manix 2 Lock Stick

I have at times (rarely), needed to take a drill bit, in a pin vise (General tools #93), and make the four screw holes, ever so slightly larger. Giving more room for things to better line-up, and have room for slight adjustment. If I remember correctly? Because it's been a while. Just before puttin...

Re: Shaman Rex Sprint Alert Thread

It's just crazy, marshmallow. You will love it! :spyder:

For me, it's rare. To love a knife, a little more each day. The Shaman, is just such a knife. :)

Re: Ok, so the Kapara is really good. Better than I thought. Especially in M4!

The Kapara does need to live on, for a very long time! :)

With it having Carbon Fiber though, and a hint towards being a food prep centric knife, by it's designer. I have to vote for S90V, in the future for it. And I'm sure, that Spyderco has got pile of that lying around too! :spyder:

Thank you, RamZar! :) Did I just see Sal smiling, and have his tongue hanging out just a little bit? When he said: "No wonder we're tired." :p Well done Sal, and to all of the Spyderco gang!

Re: Maxamet and Patina. Should I acid wash?

I may be the odd Duck in this thread? But I say, don't let it patina in the first place (once you remove your second-hand spots). Unless a person is going for that 'look', but I have to question that decision as well. Why degrade (or let degrade) such a beautiful knife finish? I bought this knife, w...

I couldn't help but now notice, that you have both FRCP, and G-10 listed RamZar. :D

And,

Re: ZDP-189 stain removal

Welcome to the forums, you philodendron slasher! :D JMM, has given a perfectly good answer. Bar-Keepers-Friend (In the store, kept near the Comet Cleaner) is a near miracle product. Flitz is good stuff too. I don't have a ZDP-189 Endura. I think it has a satin finish, right? Make sure that you do yo...

Re: Knifejoy Exclusive SMOCK!

Sweet scales Julia! I’m still debating what I’ll do on my incoming 4V model. I've been thinking about that, too. Not sure I'll keep the red. I might do a swap with the rex45 scales and have the burnt orange and dlc on the 4v, and red on the satin rex45. Copy cat :p That's the fun of having all thes...

Re: Does anyone make scales for the left handed pm2 that you can actually buy

Bladeswelove makes them. Check for him on Instagram, or go to https://bladeswelove.com/
He makes them for his PM2 Ultra. Which is a hybrid compression/button lock variation, and is built from the left handed model.
Just tell him you need a set, and that he can leave out the button hole for you! :D

According to the hrc database thread, this 10v looks to be significantly harder than the 10v K2 (at 63hrc), and on par with the k390 police (64-65.5hrc).

My K2, tested at 64.2 JuPaul. So I see Spyderco as being very consistent, when it comes to treating 10V. :spyder:
