Baby boom Jan 20th 1980.

Has anyone else noticed that there are between 50-100 forum members having 41st birthday today?

Is this a glitch?

Re: Knife lubricating agents

I have a spray can of CRC Heavy Duty Silicone in front of me and the warnings on the label say: "Lubricates metal, rubber, nylon, and wood. DO NOT USE ON PLASTICS." One of the ingredients listed on the can is acetone. Acetone will melt plastics. I also have another spray can of silicone spray out i...

Re: Knife lubricating agents

How much lubrication do we need? It is just a pocket knife. These are not guns and they certainly are not internal combustion engines. I mainly lubricate to protect from corrosion and any improvement to the action is just a bonus. As knife nuts I realize that we way overthink lots of things about k...

Re: Spydisaster! (U.K.)

As a European, I know what you mean. What main sellers did you mean? Lamnia and knivesandtools? Or someone else? Yes. Lamnia have stopped all delivery to the U.K. now. K&T were pricier, and much more so, now. Have you ever tried Coutellerie Tourangelle? Their shipping option(s) are lousy, but their...

Re: Knife lubricating agents

Silicone sprays typically have additives to thin them out. Who knows what those can be. According to the SDS sheet, that stuff is 88% VOC. That’s probably why we don’t have the same stuff in the US. 100% silicone oil would be much better. Those volatile organic compounds should also be in Ballistol...

Knife lubricating agents

I have a question for people who have been disassembling/reassembling their Spydies: Do any of you use silicone spray instead of oils? I found that mechanics in my company use Valvoline silicone spray for different kind of applications, and this seems like the right tool for pivot and other parts of...

Sorry to digress from the topic, butI'm looking at this image, and can't seem to overlook that Pac Salt first gen is just a tiny bit bigger than Endela, but has a substantial increase in edge.

Is this photo effect (Endela is closer to lens) or what?

Re: Post your Spyderco collection in one picture!

An old picture I took in 2006 ... well, that was over 14 years ago and my collection has grown and nowadays it's difficult to get the whole collection into one picture. Apart from all the work of taking the knives out of their boxes and back again, to get the collection back in order. :o https://i....

Re: Mulebteam

When should we expect the S45VN and SPY27 to come out?

I see now that handles and sheaths are available on the site also, so would by the complete package.

Re: MAP pricing policy favors amazon. Bad for vendors (that are not Amazon) and consumers.

One last point. Every reputable knife dealer, whether internet only, B&M only, or a mix of both, has a phone number, and darn near all of them have a toll free number. I wonder how many of those who complain about MAP pricing have ever tried calling one or more dealers and seeing if it would be pos...

It must be a backlock.

Yep... in SPY27 with a “powder blue” G10 handle. Bring it !
I'd buy that, for sure!

Re: Lil’ Native Sprints/Exclusives?

Bumping this thread to see what we can expect.
Must say that the backlock version didn't get much varieties; are the sales really so bad?

There was a backlock blade with LC200N in the Spyderco glass, but nothing further than that.

Is backlock going to get amything soon?

Re: Spyderco Standard Clip vs. Lynch vs. MXG Gear

I'm using MXG titanium deep carry clip on my Delica, and it has less tension than the original stainless steel. If you look through the threads, you can see that stainless steel needs much more force to bend (plastic deformation) than commercial titanium. In practice, SS will hold better as a clip, ...
