Re: Are there fake UKPKs?

There are fakes and this appears to be one of them. Missing markings, font placement, no cutout in the show-side scale for the pocket clip, etc. Thanks. I thought it looks a little off, but I could not figure out, what exactly is wrong, besides the missing location, since I never had a UKPK. I'm wa...

Re: Elastic Ceramic

I really like his videos, I do, but I take them with a grain of salt. He had lc200n ranked above m4 and something else, and that has not been my experience at all. If I'm not mistaken he (Pete from Cedric & Ada Gear and Outdoors) tested the same knife model in m4 again. The second time the knife wa...

Re: Elastic Ceramic

Sharpens nicely, I quickly touched on the subject in the latest video I linked in my last post - but I will release a full sharpening tutorial video. There are two or three things to keep in mind when sharpening this stuff, but once you get a hang of it, it's not a big deal. ...not that you will ha...

Are there fake UKPKs?

Here is an UKPK without the location of origin on the right side of the blade. Is that a straight hint for a fake or do such Spydercos exist? I never have seen any without the location, but I'm not 100% sure, if it is a must have for a real one. https://www.ebay.de/itm/Spyderco-UK-Penknife-C94/12468...

Re: Remove Loctite from G10

It is counterproductive to use loctite on pocket clip screws on knives advertised as a four-way clip position capable knives. It would be kinda better to include the clip and screws separately in a zip-lock bag and let the owner decide where to install the clip. The other two options would be to us...

Re: Elastic Ceramic

The question for the possibility or impossibility to sharpen this material came into my mind too. I think it may be possible, that it maybe could be possible to sharpen. I imagine that with that elasticity the main problem (micro chips) could be eliminated (see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IDoWZ...

Roman Kase, the maker, is doing some amazing, and truly innovative work.

Definitely worth checking out his website if you're not familiar with him.

Elastic Ceramic

Cedric & Ada Gear and Outdoors just posted a video with a ceramic knife that lacks one of the big drawbacks of ceramic knives. It's elastic. Sounds quite interesting in my opinion.

Re: Cru-wear TiCN dragonfly exclusive

Got mine in over lunch. Kudos to IndianaKnives for lightning fast shipping! But I gotta say, I’m not too happy with this one. Not at the price I paid. Lots of small chipping around edges of carbon fiber and around two screw cutouts. One scale is slightly warped away from the liners creating a gap. ...

You may want to change the thread title or make a new one as this valuable information about Bonvu might get overlooked.

Re: Shipping from SMKW to Europe

Just an info for those, who find this and are interested in my experience with Bonvu: I used the service for two different orders, that have been combined and sent to me in one package. Since one shop only accepted payment, that was not accessible for me, I even used the service, that Bonvu buys the...

Re: Why did you join?

I came here, because the Spyderco website told me, this is a good place to ask questions and post pictures of suspect knives.
Since then, I read and learned a lot.
My input is pretty low, but nonetheless I enjoy the friendly environment here.

Re: How did you get interested in Spyderco knive

For me, the vast variety of different steels and the reputation for a good heat treatment have been the factors that made me to take a look into Spyderco.

Re: The RIT dye thread

Good idea for a thread, since I just started, three days ago, thinking about dying scales, that I don't own yet. I'm super excited for the UKPK slat but not so much about the yellow handle color. So I thought about dying and seeing the results here I'm even more excited about the UKPK.

Re: Most underappreciated steel?

Out of the three in voting: I don't know, never have used 14c28n, so I can't talk about it. In general: S30V or S35VN. I listed both because they are so similar, that in real live the only difference I could notice is the name. That said, I fell like the S30V might be a little more underappreciated ...
