Re: Sticky compression lock

I sent one in and they improved it... not gonna say “fixed” bc it came back with no stick but some play. The second I took it apart and reassembled it to install custom scales, some of the stick came back but not as bad as before.

Re: Spy27 and S45vn - Question for Sal

Said it in the other thread already: What I am excited about is that referring to Sal Spy27 is kind of an US version of VG10.. For me VG10 still is one of the best "real life down to earth" EDC steels and just a joy to sharpen on the Sharpmaker. I am courious on Spydercos "take" on that steel, if o...

Re: After-Market Micarta Scales for Para 3?

I was also going to mention RC Bladeworks. I ordered a custom set of terotuf scales from them bc they didn’t have any in stock. They did an outstanding job AND the scales shipped just a week after I ordered them.

Made the purchase over Instagram DM, they’re rc_bladeworks.

Spy27 and S45vn - Question for Sal

Hi Sal,

You weren’t kidding about the new product reveal having some exciting stuff! There are about 5 knives I need... might have to live on one meal a day for a few months.

Was just wondering, how hard will you guys be running Spy27 and S45vn?

Thanks,
Aaron

Re: Native 5 with Compression Lock please!

I’m shocked how many people are vehemently opposed to this every time it comes up. Nobody’s trying to discontinue your beloved native 5 backlock. I admit that there are a lot of positives about backlocks. But for those of us who don’t like them, a native 5 version with a comp lock would be awesome....

Re: Your TWO To Return In 2020

Saw the title and definitely thought this was about which knives I bought that I’d send back... thought that was weirdly negative.
😂
I want the Mantra 2 back with certain upgrades... maybe a CF show side (Kapara style cf, not laminate plz no laminate) and improved action.

Rex 45 vs K390?

I’ve seen threads about each of these, but I haven’t seen a direct comparison of the two. What are your thoughts? I have a para 3 and a pm2 in K390 and I’m wondering whether Rex 45 is different enough to be worth picking up or whether it’d be somewhat redundant.

Thanks,
Aaron

Folders for food prep?

Hey all, I’m curious to get people’s thoughts on this because I don’t get it. First off I’m not hating on any knife or any person. I love my Kapara and really want a Spydiechef. And if you’re using your knife in a way that brings you joy and satisfaction, that fact brings me joy and satisfaction. I’...
