Re: Help with stained/patina Rex 45 military

I removed my rex45 surface rust and patina with some liquid Bar Keepers Friend and agitation (rubbing) with a rubber glove. Got all the staining and patina off but what remained was a really clean blade but just a little pitting from the oxidation. Such is the life of a carbon user. Rock on and keep...

Re: DLT Exclusive - Purple PM2 Cruwear

The Colorado Rockies fan in me really wanted to get in on this but I decided against it. I just don't need it. Sad to hear about the server problems again regarding an exclusive. There really should be some sort of process to determine if a company can even handle an online exclusive launch. It's ki...

Re: Spy Opera Alert Thread

I know this is an Italian design by "Max" and a collaboration with lionSTEEL but, it got me thinking. Is it also manufactured in Italy? Wondering how Italy is doing in these crazy times and if it is manufactured there, could we see a longer wait than first anticipated? Edit: I now see it is manufact...

Re: Spy Opera Alert Thread

I want to like this knife but I can't stand the gap between scale and ricasso when closed... Maybe actual pictures when it's released will sway me? I do love the micarta and wire clip tho... I thought that as well at first. Then I got to thinking that this will be in my pocket and that the gap will...

I've been eager to get this one!

Is it odd that I'm hoping I get one with a cool serial number? LOL :D
You're going to get #420. Some would say it's the "Bombshell" :cool:

Re: KC Exclusive Shaman Rosewood REX 45

It will take you quite a while with the brown rods if the damage is similar to what is shown in this pic. CBN/Diamond stones will make repairing damage like a chip MUCH easier and save a lot of time. The damage is less significant and more of a roll. Thanks for the advice. I'll just drop it off at ...

Re: KC Exclusive Shaman Rosewood REX 45

[/quote] Thank you JMM. Those scales look fantastic! That clip looks familiar too . . . ;) Have you measured those scales by chance? To see how much skinnier they are each, or overall, when mounted on the knife? On a side note. I dropped my Micarta/Rex yesterday, while climbing a ladder. The knife w...

Re: Spyderco 2020 Lists: Delivered & Upcoming

slightly annoying that the liners etc are silver when the scale hardware is black and then a diff colour for the blade Thought the same thing. I'm counting 5 different colors without accounting for the cutting edge/grind. Hardware, liners, g10, blade coating, and then the laser etching/symbols. Thi...

Re: SE for cutting CPVC

Hi everyone, new to the forum, somewhat new to Spyderco. I deal with a lot of CPVC piping for work, I service fire protection sprinkler systems. My usual tool for cutting this pipe is a hackzall, but pipe hidden in ceilings sometimes doesn't have space for me to fit the hackzall in. There's also th...

Re: KC Exclusive Shaman Rosewood REX 45

How well does the pakkawood on these keep clean? The pakkawood I've handled before felt like it'd get real dirty in no time (felt really porous) Ive been carrying mine almost everyday but a few since recieving it. I haven't cleaned mine but it is getting more "grippy" with use and oils and dirt fro...

Any of the factory seconds, but more specifically the Police 4 I got for $60 last year has the be the best value I've ever gotten at the sale.
This. So lucky I'm about 10 mins from Golden :spyder: Any Spydercos you get from the 2nd sale is the quintessential "value" Spyderco.

Re: BHQ Shaman Exclusive DLC/M4

So are we concluding that people only want crucarta? Yeah people definitely want it for sure. But BHQ ordered a lot more of these than a normal exclusive. I think Knifecenter did the same with their batch. This is good it is still available for more than a few minutes. Going on 30 minutes to be spe...

Re: TKJ Spyderco exclusive cruwear ????

I design and create software systems for a living, which appears to be what caused many of the perceived issues in this case. Software for people like me is not difficult but I do not work with a team of fewer than 5 fellow engineers whose rate is $200+/hour. To ensure that a release like this is d...
