Re: Polishing Lil’ Native G10 scales?

I wet sanded mine with 600 grit to knock down the factory g10 texture. It took very little time to get the scales “smoothed out”. You won’t get a polished look at 600 grit, but you’ll get close to the smooth g10 cruwear models that knifecenter did a couple years ago. I put the sand paper on a flat g...

Re: Best Handbag Folder for Wife?

Thanks everyone. Lot of great advice here. I should definitely discuss with her and let her practice with my dragonfly first. As you said earlier, perhaps intimidation will not work and the best method may be pepper spray or cellphone. We live in a very dense urban city and during these times I hav...

Re: edc backpacks

Tom Bihn Luminary 15 Very nice shape, holds a large amount of stuff for a 15L pack and the straps are the most comfortable that I have used. All of the organization pockets/access are discreet and the bag disappears on your back. It loads easily, has an outside access laptop compartment (that pulls ...

Re: custom shop...

I think it would be exciting to spec out a custom slip joint (similar to a ukpk or urban), something that Spyderco can build efficiently, and sell for in the ballpark of $200. I think it’s also worth considering that going to the custom shop to buy the same piece that xyz dealer/distributor owns the...

Re: Ed Schempp Bowie & Persian C83 & 75mm

The Bowie doesn’t get that much attention, but it is such a good one.

You need to hold, manipulate and use it to understand why it exists in its form.

Ed Schempp gets it...he has such a great perspective on design.

Re: Watu...AKA Lil Chokwe

The Watu is really excellent. I’m generally not a fan of the g10/carbon fiber scale material, but it works on the Watu. The straight lines, heavy blocky handle, holes and scale material all work together much better than I thought based on pictures alone. The detent is nice and strong too. I really ...

https://forum.spyderco.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=86314&p=1410966#p1410966 This topic sort of came up recently in another thread.

Re: Wireless earbuds

Transparency mode (and full noise cancellation mode) works great. I do a bunch of business on phone while mobile, so these are the greatest thing since sl...

Re: Who owns a Hanan?

I have owned and used a Hanan since October. My only real gripe is the “thick-ish” grind. The flipping action on mine was not good out of the box. Pretty much like everybody else has experienced. I used a pin vise and a pointy diamond burr to barely widen the detent hole in the blade by hand. Night...

Re: Exclusive Delica - Carbon Fiber with HAP40/SUS410

Mine is scratched at almost all the screw locations around the scales. It looks like it was rushed thru production, or the tech didn’t give the CF the necessary attention to prevent cosmetic damage. Mine looked new/untouched otherwise. I’m happy to keep it as-is because at the price I paid, I can li...

Re: Early days thoughts on the Brouwer

The Brouwer hits on many of the things that I like...and I agree with much of what’s already been covered. I carry it un clipped in my pocket, so the stock clip works for me, although I wish it was titanium to better fit with the other materials on the knife. I do have an issue with the lock bar on ...

Re: Is there support for an LC200N Street Beat?

I rarely have the occasion to slay a pig carcass while washing up after a long day.

If I ever found the need to carry a sharp bladed object in the most unnecessary place, it might be the H1 Ark. It has more bite than Irish Spring.
