Re: Crazy Good Deals Part 2!!

For Europeans i would like to suggest taking a look at coutellerie-tourangelle.com/ from France. They have the best prices (but still European) i've seen, and they are very thrustworthy. They are definitely worth checking out - not all models are cheaper then elsewhere, but some definitely are. If ...

Just out of curiosity, what was the reasoning behing "locked behind glass"?

In my country everything is always behind locked glass because of the risk of theft.

Here too, always almost everything of value is behind locked glass counters.

Re: Knifejoy Exclusive...Slysz Bowie??!!

If we're talking about Spyderco knives in general, the Heinnie Haynes UKPK exclusive comes to mind. The same example came to my mind. I would add that, except for rare exceptions like that of HH, it is highly unlikely that European dealers will commission exclusives as it requires paying upfront fo...

Was there ever an exclusive for a European retailer, or a retailer outside the US? If we're talking about Spyderco knives in general, the Heinnie Haynes UKPK exclusive comes to mind.

Re: DIY Ladybug / Manbug Pocket Clip

Interesting, thank you for sharing! :) that's a pretty creative way of making a DIY clip for these small bugs. I usually keep my Ladybug inside my 5th pant pocket. The size of the pocket is enough to snugly fit the LB without being easily dislodged. My only concern with this is how fragile and easil...

Re: KnifeJoker translucent manix2 lw

Yep, sold out already on the website. Congrats to the owner of TKJ for risking it on this knife. I did not get one in the end, because although I really love Manixes, the ones I have barely get any pocket time anymore because the Manix simply takes too much space in my pockets. And the pinned constr...

Re: Blade HQ M4/Jade Rock Lobster

OOS... I guess the demand was greater than I expected, or this was a rather small batch. Congrats to all who got one of these! Looking forward to the next disco'ed model to be treated the BHQ exclusive style.

Re: Blade HQ M4/Jade Rock Lobster

I wonder how long will this drop last? Based on what I read on social media (FB, IG, etc) there are many who are not interested in this knife and even questioning the decision to go ahead with this release. But here in the forum more than a few are looking forward to this. I'm not getting this one s...

Re: LiL native s90v ?????

Thanks! I think there's going to be some conflicted people today... Rock Lobster or S90v lil Native... I don't want to jinx it but i think these S90v lil Natives are going to be available for a bit... I'd probably gamble on the Lobster if you can't pick up both this week. Still at Knifeworks... htt...

Re: Much needed CQI on Taichung Spydercos.

I feel like most of us can agree that knives shouldn't be easily opened with inertia/wrist flicks? I feel like that should be the minimum requirement of any detent. Definitely. Missing the point of a detent if you can flick open your knife with just wrist power. End users shouldn't have to modify t...

Re: Much needed CQI on Taichung Spydercos.

I posted here before last year about my Gayle Bradley 2's weak detent, so weak that shaking the knife would open it. It is the only fatal flaw in an otherwise amazing knife and one of the best Spyderco ever produced. Meanwhile, all the other Taichungs I have, the Sage 2, Techno 2, Swayback, Spydiech...

Re: Has anyone tried sanding the scales on the Para 3 LW for more texture?

My Para 3 LW Spy 27 once accidentally plummeted to rough concrete flooring, getting rough scratches on one of its rounded edges. Was concerned about the ruined finish but after carrying it for some time and buffing the affected area with cloth, the scratches seemed to have "healed", for a lack of a ...

Re: K390 Police 4 LW SE

I actually like the more rounded serrations on this!

Will this displace the P4 G-10 K390 out of my collection? Hmmm...

I know there was a thread here somewhere, but can anyone again please confirm if the P4 G10 and LW blades can be swapped? Apologies for the short term memory loss...
