Re: Spyderkey 3002 STC, Grail Knife?

Ah, the legendary Spyderco Clothespeg!
Is that really a crocodile clip on the back?

Re: Cat

Mine was off center for the longest time too, and perhaps you may improve your situation if you did what I did which was loosen all the screws, then tighten them starting with the 2 non pivot screws. Many thanks for the advice, youmakeme, I'll definitely give this a try as soon as I track down the ...

Re: Cat

I think it's a less than stellar offering from Spyderco. Mine is as off centre as it could possibly be and I find black G10 utterly boring. I never use mine.

Fantastic to hear it from the man himself!
And fun to hear the background story about the name. Cheers!

Re: Could someone explain the Pratata to me?

There are times when a wide blade is a good thing - slicing food thinly, you might not want the sliced piece drooping down and sticking to the bit underneath.
But in this case I would guess the guiding principal behind the design is simply that it looks cool.

Re: Favorite Steels

I know it's nothing special but N690 is good enough for me! Sharpens easily, doesn't rust, and does what it's supposed to do.

Re: Am i just lucky with my super steels?

I have a fixed blade made of Niolox (not a Spyderco) - the very first time I used it I chipped the edge. Right in the main part of the belly that does the most chopping. I don't think I'll ever try to fix it, I'd spend forever on it and lose about a mm of blade. Serves me right for trying to split b...

Re: Help needed...

And so it was that young Albatross was found dead under a pile of 467,000 Spydercos. Witnesses report a fleet of Hercules transport planes flew in from all over the world, disgorging tons of quality cutlery from a height of 5,000 feet. One witness recorded Mr Albatross's last words for posterity: "W...

Re: New Dragonfly and Para 3....family photo

I only have one Dragonfly, the stainless steel version, and I keep telling myself I don't need an FRN one as well.
We'll see how long my resolves lasts!

Re: The Drunken: Amazing Knife, Ruined by its Pocket Clip.

You'd think a pocket clip would be one of the simplest things in the universe to design - it's just a crooked piece of metal! - but it's proved to be the Achilles heel on so many knives! I suppose it's always the last thing anyone thinks about in the design process, and it ends up getting rushed.

Re: Meerkat V-TOKU

Yes I didn't express myself very well there. Of course I was talking overall size to blade length ratio, which is just one of many factors. In the hand it is a lot more pleasant than the SpyFox, which is so narrow and tiny it's hard to hold, let alone control. The Meerkat is one of my absolute favou...
