Re: Automony 2 Rusted

Thanks for the solid feedback Sharkfisher. And thanks for the prompt response Sal. This is how products evolve and improve! Just to be clear, this is one HELL of a knife! If it didn't have the blade lock that rusted it's knife perfection at it's finest. This is definitely a SHTF knife and still ope...

Re: Automony 2 Rusted

Hi Sharkfisher, Thanx for the close input. I'll get that information to manufacturing. Let me know what you want to do. I can replace the knife, but the lock will be the same on all of them. We've not had this problem yet. Maybe it the time spent wet? sal Hi Sal, Thanks for prompt response. If you ...

Re: Automony 2 Rusted

It's odd that the raised button on the lock isn't showing oxidized. Maybe it's the detent ball??? I know, I found that odd as well. The button is shaped like the hats Devo wore in "Whip it" lol... I'm not sure if those are two different metals? Also the detent ball looked great after the cleaning, ...

Re: Automony 2 Rusted

Dang... not good. Wonder if its liners, or the spring, or... Did rust ever come back on your spydiechef after cleaning the initial rust from surface contamination? You remembered my Spydiechef! The rust/staining never progressed on the blade further than what I initially found. I'll add to the thre...

Re: Automony 2 Rusted

H Sharkfisher, Welcome to our forum. Can you give me more input as to where the rust is? Can we get the knife back and send you a new one for R & D. sal Hi Sal, The rust appears to be under the thumb lock. It's almost completely frozen up and you really have to press on it hard to get it to move. T...

Automony 2 Rusted

So.... After this "wonderful shutdown" I've been able to test both the Autonomy 2 and the Spydiechef but for this review I'll focus on the Autonomy 2. For the last 3 months since the middle of March, this knife has been in the gulf of Mexico shark fishing off the surf for about 4 hours a day every s...

Re: Spydiechef Rusted After First Use

I was able to get staining on a lc200n muleteam, worse than any reports of lc200n knives ive seen. The mule teams may have had some issues though. Ive also seen rust looking spots on a caribbean but most scraped off with the fingernail. The other spots came off with a bit more elbow grease. Theres ...

Re: Spydiechef Rusted After First Use

This Spydiechef is from the latest and "greatest" batch of knives from Taichung factory. I placed the order with KnifeCenter in April 2019 and I received it the first week of October 2019. I was told this was one of about 80 freshly made knives and would be the last order shipping this year. I was a...

It's not only a member but a "Proud Member of Spyderco's Salt Series" If by Proud that means it's not able to go in the saltwater then I'm not sure how else it can be proud?

Re: Spydiechef Rusted After First Use

Hi Sal, I'm located in central Florida. I was excited about this knife and I really thought this was the best of both worlds being both corrosion resistant while maintaining other great blade characteristics like sharpening and ruggedness. It's still a beautiful knife for sure, but I think maybe I h...

Spydiechef Rusted After First Use

I waited 5 months for this knife to arrive from KnifeCenter and took it surf fishing in the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of FL this past weekend. After all the reviews and tests I saw on Youtube I thought this knife would be a perfect fit for saltwater surf fishing. Apparently it's not. Rusted after...
