Re: Native Chief in CRUWEAR???

Cruwear sounds about right. Green canvas micarta scales even sound more right...

Oh, and ball bearing lock or the button version of the compression lock please, thank you very much ;)

Kapara CQI

So the Kapara even got better:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xECQ1_ySisM

This raises questions:

- which serials will have the upgraded version?
- can we hope for pivot bushings on other knives, too?
- when we gonna see the overdue LC200 Kapara?

:rolleyes:

Re: I just cut myself...

Like I said, I didn't cut myself while fidgeting , I cut myself while holding the closed knife... Just ckecked. When I run my finger along the back of the knife a little part gets between the scales and I can feel the edge, right behind the stop pin. If I apply some pressure I'm gonna cut myself... ...

Re: Spydiechef (lc200n) performance thread.

Hm. Sorry for kinda necrothreading this...

Doesn't a regrind like this change the flicking action noticably? You're taking away mass from the end of the blade so it might, I guess.
I really like the looks of it and would consider going the same route if it didn't change the action...

Spydiechef handle finish

Does anyone know how Spyderco achieves the finish on the Spydiechef handle? Is it just some kind of acid etch over a stonewash? Ferric chloride maybe?

I'm really liking it and would consider trying something similar on other titanium scale knives if I knew how...

I’ll keep it simple.

VG10 Delica4.

Three iterations of improvement on the inspired original for less than US$80.00. The biggest BANG!


Now scientifically proven: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GIhOvFnTV-Q :D

Spydiechef blade centering

Received my new Spydiechef yesterday... came with really bad lock stick (need to pry it open every once in a while because it's so stuck) and very stiff action. Took it apart, cleaned it, oiled it with some 85w nano oil, put some sharpie on the lock faces (didn't help), but when I reassambled it I n...

Re: why does the EU get knives first?

Usually when some websites are saying something is available "now" or "soon" you should expect some weeks or months of "nowness" and "soonity"... :rolleyes:

Re: What is this on the new Spydiechef lock bar?

. I sent my Chef in due to lock stick and gritty action developing after 6 months of use. Received a letter stating that the issues were caused by normal wear and tear.....along with a brand new Spydiechef. You sent in a knife that according to Spyderco had no warranty issues and they sent you a ne...

Re: Spydiechef Chip

...if the blade hits the standoff when closing the knife one-handed, you gotta do a hell lotta sharpening before you take away enough material to actually prevent that, I guess. Somehow, since I ordered one, I seem to notice more and more people having issues with the Spydiechef (lockstick, blade's ...

Is returning it to the vendor an option? I would echo Joe and say do not modify it if you might return it, you will nullify the warranty, and Spyderco should see how the knife looks when you got it.

No, unfortunately that's not an option, I bought this NIB from a collector.

Re: New PM2 lock stick issue

Best I can do for you is this: https://youtu.be/sta3r7Wyh20?t=130 At 2:10 you get to see the lockbar and I'm sure there are other parts where you can pause to get a look from other angles as well. I can't imagine you needing to file off too much of anything, you arent reshaping the lockbar by any m...
