Re: The most reliable locking mechanism Spyderco uses?

Wow, what an argumentative lot!
I believe the question was which is the most reliable lock.
My answer is the ball bearing lock.
In my opinion.

Re: Proposal: A Contoured Scale Series

I have to agree re contoured scales. I think that Spyderco could be in a winner if they offered the option of contoured scales. The only fault that I can find with Spyderco folders is that they aren't that comfortable to hold compared to some of my other knives that do have scales designed for the h...

I guess my comments could be perceived as political, though I'm trying not to be so. My bad. Hard to talk about knife laws though. Let's try to keep it to knife laws.

Unfortunately knife laws and politics are interweaved and can't be separated. :(

Please explain this "dinner plate" sharpening technique.

On the bottom of ceramic plates, there is often a ring of uncoated ceramic which can be used as an emergency sharpening stone.

Edit: same with ceramic mugs.
Cheers M m, I'll try that.

Re: Why do you have the knives you do?

I bought my first Spyderco, a Tenacious, after my son enrolled me on Spyderco on Facebook. I liked it so much I now have the Spyderco bug and so far have bought one of each kind of lock, a really small one and am in the process of buying a really big one. After that I might start on the fixed blades.

Re: Whats your favorite unusual blade shape?

My favourite unusual blade is also the kukri. However the most unusual blade that I have, until joining this forum, rather underrated is the blade on the Citizen. Until I saw the explanation for this serrated semi hook shape I didn't realise how devastating it could be in combat! :eek: Having said t...

Being a lefty I prefer the ball bearing/axis lock. But the only lock I dislike is the back lock. I also dislike the back lock and I have two of them, a Pacific Salt and a Dragonfly. I open both by compressing the back lock and only releasing it when the blade is fully opened or closed to minimise w...

The police just looks flimsy compared to the other two You couldn't be more wrong about that. My Police 3 is a decade old and works better than the day I bought it. I've chopped and batoned with it, and even used it as a regular pocket knife from time to time. Only reason I retired it, is because I...

Re: Police versus military?

Manix XL gets my vote. Extremely comfortable handle and strong closed bias while still being easy to thumb flick open. It is a pocket hog, but I always keep a pocket dedicated to carrying my knife. I don’t use pocket clips, so reaching past the knife isn’t something I’ve had to deal with. My next S...

Re: Manix 2 XL Question

I bought my Manix second hand, lnib, and the first owner said that he had trouble with it to start with but after a few open/closed operations it really smoothed out.
I have to say mine is now smooth silk and locks up really solid.
