Re: Can custom para 3 scales be used with para 3 lightweight?

https://i.imgur.com/WzwxqpT.png At the standard Para 3 you have metal liners where on top sits the exchangeable scales. At the lightweight the scale is the handle. Nothing exchangeable there. Not even the blades? Blades are most likely interchangeable. I say that because people have successfully sw...

Re: 4V Manix XL?

I sure hope they materialize! A DLC 4V sprint run with tan/brown or ranger/OD green scales would be awesome!! Or even a green/brown burl G10, because I just remembered thats possible.

Re: Can custom para 3 scales be used with para 3 lightweight?

No, in short the construction is completely different. The biggest difference being that the Para 3 LW is linerless, so if you replace the plastic scales that house the integral lock bar, there is no locking mechanism. The G10 Para 3 has steel liners that nest inside the scales normally, which is wh...

Re: Shaman Cru-Wear Sprint Run release ?

Mine has already darkened a noticeable amount just from carrying and handling it. I haven't even had a chance to really use it so it doesn't seem to take much to darken the micarta, or maybe I just have oily hands. I was playing with it the other day when I got home from work and I passed out with ...

What about a sheepsfoot Caribbean? Strong tip, totally corrosion resistant, great size and design.

I use the bump on a closed knife many times to pry with.
I do that with my Dragonfly a lot at work, the swedge works great as an impromptu screw driver for large panel screws too.

If you really wanted to splurge an Autonomy would be great for a first responder too.

Re: Spyderco for firefighter

I would think one of the rescue knives, maybe the Assist or a Pacific Salt would be good choices.

Re: Knife & Watch

No watch, but this is what’s on me most days. I’ll mix up the knife sometimes, but the Manix 2 LW gets the most pocket time.

Would classic burgundy micarta be a good match, ala the early Jester? I think it would be excellent.
That would look great!

Re: Micarta Chaparral

Much as I love Micarta, I don't think the Chaparral is the best vehicle for it. Micarta looks best when it's thick enough to be at least a bit rounded so the layers are visible. The Chaparral, at least so far, has featured thin flat scales. Still, if it was done with "original recipe" Micarta and n...

Re: s90v SHAMAN IS OUT

As much as I like Sal's designs I'm sorry to say but this an overrated folder and has quite a few issues design wise .... don't want to go into details. Some say it's a PM2+Manix2 killer... I say NO WAY. I have the feeling that all this Shaman hype will fade out, I've seen this before with so many ...

Re: s90v SHAMAN IS OUT

I think a Shaman LW, especially in the way Golden usually makes them without any liners at all, would be grossly blade heavy. As it sits with steel liners and a steel backspacer hanging on the end the knife still feels blade heavy swinging it out. Theres a lot more mass than the Manix blade, thats f...

Re: Micarta Chaparral

I just remembered the Sun & Moon G10 is coming, so any Micarta variant would follow that. I am looking forward to that one, it looks really cool. I already plan on getting the Raffir Noble at some point, so if they do come out with a Micarta Chaparral I may end up with a small collection of Chaps!

Micarta Chaparral

“Spyderco’s Chaparral series is a family of slim, pocket-friendly gentlemen’s folding knives that celebrates the diversity of different handle materials and treatments.” So far we’ve had iterations in carbon fiber/G10 laminate, a few titanium versions, Raffir Noble and FRN. I think that Micarta wou...

Re: Note to self - only let the GF carry stainless knives...

I use brake cleaner to clean the crud off my work knife all the time, brake cleaner is good for everything! The stuff I use is non-chlorinated though and is pretty much plastic safe.
