Re: The Perils of HIGH TECH Addiction

If they are so addicted they walk off a cliff it's natural selection. I love my phone, I just built a new computer and am upgrading another, but I also don't have my nose stuck in technology 24/7. Well, I do, but it's part of my job! Haha! My kid wants to go on walks constantly, we did 7.25 miles th...

Re: Have you owned a Spyderco lockback with zero play?

It doesnt matter to me. Mid backlock is still my favorite lock and there is never enough play to bother me. ... it is certainly good enough for my uses. This sums up my experience. I guess the Sebenzas made a name for themselves with the people who worry about this sort of thing. I prefer Enduras a...

Re: Vale Michael Scott.

Rip. I lost my dad to cancer when I was 19, right after graduating high school.

I wish he could have met his grandson. Cancer sucks. Condolences to the family and all his friends here and elsewhere.

Re: Knife and Car

Spyderco Shaman, Nissan 350z. From the first time I laid eyes on the 350 I wanted one bad! Finally did get one, a 2005 base model (6 speed!). Man I loved that car. Nismo stune exhaust, Nismo v1 spoiler, Daytona blue! Not the fastest car, but she had torque, a great engine note, handled wonderfully, ...

Re: Direction and Magnitude!

Would be nice if I could get some spacers to take up the space in the pockets. Glue them in with some weak adhesive, give the pivot more stability. Kind of like the Hinderer tri-way design. Down the rabbit hole I go! On my XM is used the provided spacers, but installed by own oversized (OD) washers...

Re: Direction and Magnitude!

Do you have a tutorial on how to swap the bearings? Specs on the washers and source? I am interested! I've done this on many knives, not just Spydercos. Its pretty easy. Now, it seems to me that many people think you need some sort of super thick washer to fill the bearing pocket. Not true. Just ge...

Never owned one, but my father in law carries one. He loves it! Bought it at cost from Peter Carey himself, who is a patient of his.
That's pretty cool getting it from the designer!

Re: Direction and Magnitude!

I like mine. Got it in a trade a while back. Its a pretty sweet knife. Fit and finish is second to none. Chunky, but thats OK in my book. The CF scales are beautiful. To avoid that cupping business I converted mine to PB washers, along with my other ultra thin bearing race models. I feel bearings a...

Re: Direction and Magnitude!

Nice to see people like it! It is a thick one for sure, but I don't mind it. I carry a 4max Scout a lot... This thing is a featherweight! Its a fun flipper, but spydie flicking it and thumb flicking is very satisfying as well. Or slow rolling. Think I'm going to go fidget with it some more... Haha!

https://i.imgur.com/YZT4sDc.jpg Been wanting to pick one of these up since they were discontinued, and found one for a decent price so I snatched it up! Needed a disassembly and some lube, had to flip one of the washers because of cupping, but she's smooth as silk now. Really nice knife. Anyone els...

Re: Switch Gamers

I'm interested in the switch, but usually play pc games. The epic games store has free games all the time (GOOD games!) so I have a decent library and haven't paid a cent. My Steam library is nice too! I'm into Elite Dangerous and Assetto Corsa mostly, but my wife is usually on my computer playing h...

This is pretty amazing.

Re: DLT Cruwear purple Para3

I think it’s time that they get put in the corner by Spyderco until they figure out a way to clean up these release fiascos. For f-‘s sake...you have to be able to do better when you are generating that kind of revenue. That goes for Spyderco too. I’d like to hear the response from Golden. I guess ...

Re: DLT Cruwear purple Para3

The number of desperate scalpers on eBay for this knife is sickening. The desperation behind some people all to get a few extra bucks is pretty sad. After taxes and shipping, they will be a whole $50-80 in profit. Wooohoo. Profit is profit. If it was $5 they would still do it. Sad but that's the ru...

Eloquent words there, hoss. I had to google that, and think I came up with the original source. Is that guy you? No sir. I follow a bunch of philosophy pages on IG and came across that gem.

Re: What is the weirdest thing in science and nature that you know?

The universe is an ongoing explosion. That is where you live. In an explosion. We have no idea what living actually is. Sometimes when atoms get arranged in a certain way they get haunted. That’s us. When an explosion explodes hard enough dust wakes up and thinks about itself. The weirdest thing is...

Re: What is the weirdest thing in science and nature that you know?

To me the weirdest thing in nature is life itself! Think about it. The big bang, billions of years pass and stars and planets form and die. Over time proteins and amino acids form, simple life comes into being. A long, long path of evolution ensues and somehow, some way, by chance WE and all life as...
