Re: Gayle Bradley 2

My copy also had a lock stick, that persisted throughout the honeymoon phase. Now I am doing a one-knife-only-for-a-month challenge with it and the lock stick is gone. I mean, completely gone. Thanks kobold for the reply. That’s great to know. I now use the fingernail and tip of my thumb, and I thi...

Re: Gayle Bradley 2

Not that it's lock-related, but this would have been "the knife" for me if only aside from the lock stick, the dismal detent issue would also have been avoided. My detent is such that I can actually flick open the knife by just snapping my wrist with a moderate amount of force. If only my copy had ...

Re: Gayle Bradley 2

I totally missed that in your original post. My bad. The lock is definitely the low point in the design. I'd like to see a CQI where they make it easier to access and actuate and smooth out the pointy bits. The knife would be a 10/10 No problem. :) I agree, the lock is the only negative for me and ...

Re: Gayle Bradley 2

Mine was sticky as well. Take a pencil and with the knife closed, draw on the part of the blade where the lock catches when the blade is open. It took a few applications for it to take permanent, but it smoothed it right up immediately. Thanks WRB. Have tried that, but it didn’t help with this one.

Re: Webex with Sal and Eric?

I voted yes as I would be interested to put a question or two to sal, though I don’t know what Webex or Zoom are.

Re: Gayle Bradley 2

With my thumb on the scale, I squeeze the locking liner with my index finger. This is how Michael Christy does it around the two-minute mark in the video below. https://youtu.be/xbuGMQPN4rs Thanks mikey. That or pinching between thumb and index of the left hand is the only way at present. Even then...

Mine was very sticky, sometimes had to use quite a bit of force to unlock it. It is now smooth and easy to unlock. Just takes a bit of break in.
Thanks, that’s something positive then.

Re: Gayle Bradley 2

Thanks everyone for the replies. Appreciate the detailed post description Nerdlock. My tang appears flat enough, definitely no hollow point that I can tell. May resort to your solution further down the track. I have done that before on another knife. Will persist with it for now. Cheers. No problem...

Re: Gayle Bradley 2

First day I had the knife, definitely got a sore thumb from getting used to it, and playing with it way too much. Not the easiest lock bar to access, so it takes a bit of a push. And although useful for the traction, the jimping can chew up your thumb if you keep using it all day... unnecessarily. ...

Re: Gayle Bradley 2

Are you sure the lock is actually sticky or could it just be difficult to unlock because it's harder to access than most liner locks. Try pushing down with your thumb and then move the lock bar over. Does that change anything? Regardless, I wouldn't do anything but keep using it. I've had a few kni...

Gayle Bradley 2

I have just received a GB2 new and it has a very sticky lock. So much that it takes all my thumb strength and more to disengage it. I don’t want to return it as I am in Australia. Will this get better and is there a solution to improve it. I have tried the lead pencil and also a smidge of 5wt nano o...

Re: What Spyderco is in your pocket today??

One of the things I love to do most is searching for old, forgotten pathes/trails in our local mountains. There are a lot,be it for smugglers or hunters in former times, be it just for connecting now long abandoned alpine pastures. Really hard to find sometimes, since there are only minimal remains...
