Re: Boye dent poll

I'm surprised there are people that won't buy models that lack boye dents, considering how easy they are to add. Takes less time than reprofiling the edge or taking the knife a part to polish the pivot, two commonly done mods to new knives. Depends on the knife. I added a small one to my Siren, due...

Re: EDC vs WEDC

No difference for me. I grab a different knife every day or two, but rarely use them at work. My job just doesnt involve much cutting. And when it does, its not much different than what I do outside of work. My flashlight, on the other hand, gets used frequently at work, and at home too. But I carry...

Re: Spyderco Lock Type Preference

Compression is my choice because I like the ease of use when going about my daily tasks. There is a bit of a fidget factor too that is kind of neat. 90% of the time or more it's great. But on the occasions that I decide to do some tougher cutting, requiring considerable force applied to the back of ...

Re: How do S110V and ZDP-189 Compare?

Sorry, I dont have any comparison for you, as I too do not own any s110v blades, but do have some zdp189. In my experience it is not terribly rust resistant. Out of all the various "stainless" steels I've laid my hands on, only two of them ever have showed signs of corrosion. XHP and zdp189. Both we...

Re: I Finally Get Deep Carry Pocket Clips... For Chinos.

I only buy pants, carpenter jeans mostly, with angled pockets. I feel like it keeps my knife and flashlight at the outer edge of the pockets better. And I use the leg pocket for a pen and Knipex pliers. With that said, I dislike deep carry clips altogether. I value ease of access over concealment. P...

Re: Spyderco Siren Release Date?

any word on when bladehq will drop theirs? I am pretty sure most dealers, especially the big ones like BHQ, have already shipped out the first batch that they got in. Obviously it was not enough to satisfy all of the preorders. I myself am still waiting on KnifeCenter. Others have gotten theirs by ...

Re: blade play

Just about every backlock that I can remember owning, Spyderco or not, had a miniscule amount of vertical play. Nothing to worry about.

Re: Spyderco DLC question

DLC that I have encountered does not appear to be simply sitting on the surface like a paint-type coating. It acts like it is one with the material to which it as applied. Now, I dont have much experience with it in knives, because I like satin blades for the most part, but I have been seeing it in ...

Re: Mule Team Survey

1) Yes. I purchased a new one in pd1 a few years ago. I also bought 3 others at the latest seconds sale. 2) I made a g10 and box elder burl handle for that first one. The others will get handles too, when I find time. 3) I made a kydex sheath 4) I wouldn't say I've done any real "testing", just some...

Re: Your "return ethics"?

Very few of us have a store nearby that stocks more than just a couple Spyderco models. But all of us have access to the internet. There are many resources available online to sell, or trade, unwanted knives.

Re: Bottom of pocket/clipless carry ?

On the rare occasions that I carry a Dragonfly I just drop it into my front pocket. Mostly because I dont feel like it is very secure when clipped onto it. Its so small and light that I can hardly tell it's even on my pocket to begin with, and then it doesnt have far to go to lift up enough to fall ...

I did a similar mod on my Domino. Not only was that lockbar stiff and squared off, but it has jimping too! Made for a sore thumb, especially the first few days with it. Knocked the corners down a bit with a round ceramic rod.

Re: Just ordered some Nano Oil *cough snake oil cough*

I just use whatever I already have handy. Usually it's 3in1 or Remoil. I've veen known to use motor oil or ATF too. IMO, knives are incredibly simple machines, and are not subject to harsh or demanding conditions. Practically any oil will do a reasonable job of slicking up the action and keeping cor...
