Re: Post up your Rit dye projects..

Tried my best for orange but either the concentration was too weak to do anything or it came out red. I stripped and repeated a couple times which acetone makes surprising short work of. Anyway, I followed up with a little acid etch and Gatorade bottle stone wash and thought it turned out well enoug...

Re: Military Domination..(of my pocket). What Spydercos have surprised you to become your "go to"?

I started with a Para 3 and quickly jumped to the PM2. Went steel crazy and picked a up quite a few. Somewhere in middle I grabbed a ReX 45 Millie and wanted to love it so much but felt like it was way too large in my hand. Now I have a handful of Para 3 sprints, a ton of PM2s (I actually just bough...

Re: Military Family Sprint Runs?

My first Millie was the burnt ReX sprint that I got as soon as they dropped. At first I thought it was too big and left in my safe while I continued to collect PM2s. This summer I fell in love with my Millie and started EDCing it. Now I have a bunch of nice PM2s I hardly ever carry and yet I still b...

Re: Which steel for the Para 3?

For no other reason other than, I've read a lot of very cool stuff regarding Maxamet, that's my number 1. The Para 2 Maxamet was also my first love at first sight Spydie. Something about the gray G10 and stone washed blade just works especially with the Paras. My number 2 is the Red G10 M390 from DL...

Re: Spyderco Factory resharpening

Wow! I've sent abused SE knives in before for sharpening and they didn't do much for them. Did you have Spyderco do this? You just asked for regrinding? How much did it cost? Wish I took before and after picks of mine but I can tell you that my SE was pretty much ruined by a previous owner. I sent ...

Re: Spyderco Factory resharpening

I just wanted to say thanks to the crew at Spyderco for the awesome job they did regrinding and re habbing an a junkyard dog of a SE Para 3 I recently sent them. Best money I’ve ever spent on a knife... minus buying a new Spyderco. Thanks!

Abel + Spyderco Native® 5 LC200N

This thing is absolutely amazing. At $500 I just cant do it. Absolutely love the Rainbow Trout though. Anyone plan on getting in on the preorder or will this one go to the anglers who use Abel's reels?

Re: The hard choice of Christmascarry

I’m all over my Blade HQ Jade Para 2 with DLC blade but my Rex 45 Para 2 is laser sharp. Might be a game time decision since I don’t Have a Red DLT Para 2... yet. Merry Christmas fellow addicts!

Completely swamped with Christmas craze but took a minute to check the Forum and was lucky enough to see this thread in time. Was not expecting to buy another Para in 2018 but what the heck. Still no shipping info but still just amazed that I cought this one after never hearing a word about its rele...

Re: Upcoming Millies and Paras 2?

I thought I might be purchasing the Blade HQ Millie this year but did not expect to buy anything else.... KW PM2 CTS-204P is in the mail. Still waiting for the P2 maxamet to drop in 2019 and a red DLT PM2 M390... and if the Rivers Edge PM2 drops.... Man I love the Para 2.

Re: Para 2 Factory 2nd With Blade Play When Closed

Sounds like the detent ball and respective hole in the blade tang are mis-aligned. Probably not something you can fix easily. Still, doesn't hurt to open it up and check. The DLC is not too easy to scratch, plus you can tape up the blade before taking the knife apart..... I hear you with regards to...

Re: Para 2 Factory 2nd With Blade Play When Closed

Without seeing it I would guess that the detent is the issue- That said if it was a super simple fix I’m guessing it wouldn’t have ended up in the factory seconds bin- How easily does it shake open? After the 2mm is pulled out the de tint is solid. I think the only reason I noticed it is because I ...

Re: Para 3 vs paramilitary 2

I've been on a bender for both these knives and so far I can't say I can tell a whole lot of difference between the steels but my knives mostly cut up boxes from appliances, furniture, and Amazon. I will say my first Para was a 2 and it felt large in my hand. Then I purchased a 3 and fell in love. I...

Para 2 Factory 2nd With Blade Play When Closed

I recently picked up a nice Blade HQ Para 2 Jade DLC that is a factory 2nd. This has become my new favorite knife for sure. Everything about this knife is fabulous from the cosmetics to the action and lockup. The only issue is when the blade is closed up you can move it (open and close directions) a...

All I've heard is that DLT is doing a rerun of the red M390 PM2 in the spring.
Yes please! So excited for this and the Maxamet to come back.

Re: KnifeCenter Para 3 Cruwear

For anyone thinking about picking one of these up on the second market, I bought this one purely for the steel but quickly found myself really liking the smooth G-10 handles. I’d like to see smooth options in colors although I’m not sure if bright colors would present visually as nice as the black. ...
