Re: Raven 2

Hi Krsmitty, The discoloration may be polished off, or will probably disappear with sharpening. You can call customer service for more info. sal The discoloration went up the blade at least a 1/4" the whole length of the blade on both sides. Even though the price was on the lower end of Spyderco's,...

Re: A Spyderco OTF?

Good write up Mike.

I have come to appreciate the ease of use, IMHO, of an OTF. 75% of the time I carry an OTF as my EDC. A Lighting for working in the yard, a Titan D/E bayonet point or my Ultratech Tanto for everyday carry.

Raven 2

Arrived today. Really liking it. Like the "byrd" hole, nice G10 handle. My only complaint is a discoloration all along the edge of both sides of the blade. Caused by the heat while sharpening?
Any type of warranty for the Byrd line of knives?

Re: A Spyderco OTF?

Will say that I can't recall ever seeing an OTF auto in a movie or TV show. We must not watch the same movies. Live and Let Die, The Punisher, A Bullet to the Head, The Specialist, Olympus Has Fallen, Men In Black all have OTF autos shown in them, and that's just off the top of my head. Whiskey Cav...

Re: Don't get cut with a ffg blade

About 6 years ago I was teaching a class, and I had an X-acto knife come uncapped in my pocket. At first I thought it was just something pinching my leg, but after I looked down and saw blood spreading through my pants I realized what had happened. I stopped the class, went to the bathroom, took my...

A Spyderco OTF?

I know that Spyderco has a few automatics (OTS). Has there been any thought of a Out the Front (OTF) model?

Re: Don't get cut with a ffg blade

Super glue works like a champ...Friend of mine was helping me put up some plywood over the windows for the last hurricane here in Tampa, FL. The plywood has these serrated spring clamps to hold them in place. While putting up the plywood he sliced his knee open on one of the clamps...bleeding like a...

I am the same on the serrations. At first did not like them...but the more I used knives that have them (My Tenacious)...The more I like them.

Re: Easy knife sharpener for beginner

I started with a Lansky system and them moved to the sharpmaker. Depending on how dull/bad the blade is...I start with the Lansky and then use the sharpmaker for final touches and sharpening as needed. You can go to youtube and do a search on sharpeners and find what seems like 100's of them. For no...

Re: How often do your preferences change?

My preferences and EDC seem to change on a weekly basis...lol. This week I'm into my PM2 (brand new). last week I was into OTF's...carrying my Ultratech. Next week may be into one of my Kershaw/CRKT flippers. Just what ever catches my eye at the time. I have 4 spring assist flippers coming in next w...

No offense to you, Krsmitty, welcome to the forum!! But maybe think again about your counterfeit folders... ;)
No offense taken...I did mention that I have a Tenacious, Persistence and PM2. The clones was from olden days.

Walmart...Easy return if you change your mind. Free shipping if over $35.00. Two day shipping on many items. Where I have bought 90% of my knives over the years.

Re: Am I missing something?

Good points... I have to agree on the blade steel. Put the Tenacious to good use the other day and was surprised as to how fast it became dull. Granted, it took less than a minute on the Sharpmaker to get it sharp again. Liked the liner lock for how easy it was closing the blade with it. Even though...

Am I missing something?

Hello...first time poster. Started out with a few of the Spyderco "clones". Thought they were great knives for the $15-20 price range. Moved up to purchasing a Tenacious and Persistence, again great knives for the $40-50 price range. As an OpFocus member thought I would take the advantage of the 50%...
