Re: Finer CBN/diamond rods for the sharpmaker?

I would like a Diamond stone for the sharpmaker the same as the medium stones grit as well as a finer one too. If it never arrives I will build one with a block of wood and cut slots in it at the same angle as the Sharpmaker and use whatever thin Diamond stones I can find and just shove them into pl...

Re: Knifejoy Exclusive Para Military 2

I wanted one of these. I missed it as usual... I discussed it with a fellow knife bro today and said " I don't mind paying more for a premium steel and gonzo scale color. I tire of the instant sellout of decent steel options. My money will just go elsewhere, because I do not buy from the secondary ...

Re: Tell us about your Spyderco Knife of the Year 2019

I bought a few this year but the one that really stands out is the CQI Kapara. I did not like the look in pictures but I wanted to try it anyway....what a revelation this knife is! The fit and finish are spectacular...action is smooooth. It drops shut like it is already broken in. It feels luxurious...

Re: Newbie steel question.

I am enjoying this thread. Larrin and Ankerson are epic. I would love to spend an evening trying out different knives in different steels with you guys...I can't imagine a better time! The conversation would be excellent!!! I consider myself a steel snob but I really like S30V for EDC. It holds an e...

Re: Native Chief - Can we get a heartbeat?

I really like my Native Chief. I was afraid it would be weak without liners and saw how small the pivot for the lock looked at the side of the scale. Then...I saw a disassembly video which shows the pivot pin for the lock is stepped (duh..I never considered that). It has a lot more surface area to b...

Re: Rare and Unusual Spydercos

About the only rare one I've got. Besides some tough to get Sprints/Exclusives 1st gen SE Endura. Which has become a great camping and landscape working knife. JjUd3wdh.jpg Resized_20190126_102640.jpeg Resized_20190126_082551.jpeg I have the PE version of that knife! I wish I had not thrown the box...

Re: Native Chief sprint or exclusive?

M390, 20CV, 204P. In any models, not just the Chief. I really like S30V fine as well.
My Native Chief is hilarious next to my Lil Native btw. Both great knives!

Re: Ikuchi

I have a new Ikuchi. It was a bit hard to open but I oiled it and exercised it a little and it is easy now. I can deliberately misfire it too if I operate it very slowly. It has no discernible blade play...but when closed...it is a tiny bit off center. Releasing the lock pressure causes the blade t...

Re: Which steel has impressed you lately?

I EDC a Lil Native with the comp lock. The S30V on the blade combined with a
great factory grind has made for a fantastic EDC knife. I use it all the time at work and
every 2 to 4 weeks it easily comes up on the sharpmaker to a hair popping edge.
Really sweet.

Re: Kapara CQI

I bought my Kapara from DLT recently and was very pleased...but it seemed the lock release pressure was too high. Being fearless I formed the lockbar slightly to reduce tension and now the knife is perfect. It has a luxurious feel in hand and fit and finish that exceeds all of my other knives...it i...
