Re: Red G10 Para 3 M390

People selling them on blade forums for 180-200, and even saying they didn't want them but got them anyway. I'd refuse to buy just out of spite! Would be nice to have a red one to put away for my son (his favorite color is red, but he's not 3 yet lol).

I'll pick him up something one of these days.

Re: Do you immediately sharpen a new Spyderco?

Nope. All of mine have come stupid sharp! Seems like no other production company can do that. I just got a new zt 0470...dull. My 1st 0470 was sharp, but the bevels were uneven. They use too obtuse an angle anyway so I do reprofile them. But my Spydies? Nope. They shave, curly cue paper... That's go...

Re: BBS DLC Paramilitary 2 Exclusive?

Just got mine. It's a beautiful knife! Perfectly centered blade, beautiful fit and finish. One problem though... Pivot is too tight! Not a big deal, I need to swap the pocket clip to tip up, then I'll tune the pivot and all will be well! Can't wait to start using it! Update : swapped the clip to tip...

Re: Anyone prefer manual seats in a car?

I want everything manual. Unfortunately you usually have to deal with power windows and doors (and my focus has no buttons on the doors for locks even... Just one in the center of the dash!) Thankfully pretty much everything else is manual. Manual transmission, manual seats. No sunroof!! I detest th...

Re: Just the brown SM flats

I've reprofiled a few knives with the diamonds, but I generally get it done with my lansky. Depends on how much metal needs to be removed, and what steel. 8cr? The sharpmaker does a fine job, and pretty quick. 20cv at 20 dps? I'll take the lansky (with diamonds). As long as you're close to the 30 d...

To me it was worth it. Ordered Friday and received it today. Installed a MXG black deep carry clip and it is ready to EDC! https://i.postimg.cc/T2krKxCq/5-DE58-FE9-F256-4-E89-B8-CF-8-DA76-F017-D0-D.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/PrVsVCKp/6-DA7-BC6-C-FB82-4-AE0-A365-167-D9-FA89828.jpg Edited post to show ...

Re: What angle do you sharpen at?

15 dps and 20 dps microbevel. That way I can use just the sharpmaker and be done with it!

Usually use my lansky to set the bevel if it's way off 15 dps. If it's close I use the diamond rods.

Re: Just the brown SM flats

I wouldn't even use the cbn. I go by feel, and do about 10 strokes on the corners, then check, and do more if need be. Then the flats, etc just like Sal shows.

Re: BBS DLC Paramilitary 2 Exclusive?

I think that's one reason I haven't been interested in exclusives. I don't care to try and fight other people for something, anything. I don't partake in black Friday, or any of that stuff. It's just no fun to me. Still deciding if I want to throw down on a black and blue pm2, but I'm close to convi...

I just leave them alone. I haven't had a dull spyderco yet, and just touch them up on the sharpmaker. No problems here!

Re: The backup that helps you sleep at night... ;)

I just got a backup for my zt 0470. It's fun comparing the new and my normal carry one. The new one is a bit stiff and not as smooth (probably just needs breaking in, but I'll disassemble and clean/lube it anyway) and my well used one just falls shut with a little shake. Lockbar tension may have som...

I always use a microbevel... That's the way Sal said to use the sharpmaker, and it works. Why mess with success? Lol

Re: Just the brown SM flats

Depending how often or hard you use your knives, I find the polished edge to be pointless to try and maintain. That's a lot of work to get there, just to get easily scuffed up. If it's just a display knife or pocket jewelry then I could see the appeal. It's just fun to get that shiny look. The edge...

Re: Just the brown SM flats

It works, but I prefer going all the way to ultrafine. It just feels so smooth that way! After each stone I test on paper and arm hair. If it passes on brown I go to fine. Rinse and repeat for ultrafine. So easy to touch up knives. No excuse to not have a shaving sharp edge!

That's interesting it looks like it says Para 2 on the box. We've come full circle. Paramilitary 3 and a Para 2. Yep, it definitely says Para 2. I actually find this kind of hilarious!
