Heres another story... http://www.spyderco.com/forums/showthread.php?t=50949 Good grief, what kind of idiot keeps so many of the same stupid details in his new scam?

Ranger51, that ridiculous sob story is so horribly fake, don't try so hard next time and your attempts at stolen valor won't be so transparent.

I'd probably be up for doing it if you covered shipping. What kind of knives? I just have 4 or 5 knives that need sharpening. There's a SOG Trident, CRKT Bearclaw, CRKT M16-13.... I can't remember the rest, I'll have to look when I get home. You can do Richard J from bladeforums, I think he charges...

LOL, I could probably get a brand new Endura for that much cash. Not to mention customs problems. If NZ is anything like AUS I might as well just toss my knives into the gulf.

Knife Sharpening Service

Hey everyone, I have several non-spyder's that need some sharpening and was wondering if anyone knows of a forumite or other person who will do this for a fee (or for free :p :D ). I'd sharpen them myself but am unable. Any help is appreciated.

It's easy to find charts where companies compare their own steels to each other. The tricky thing would be to find cross company comparison. I'd just try to make my own using existing data if I were you. A lot of manufacturers like to compare their steels to 440c as a benchmark. Here's where I got t...

Yep it's because of the work hardening properties of H1. Flat grinding is done on one side, then the other. hollow grind is both sides at once. When I look at the pic dapagco posted, the blade looks hollow ground to me. Wow, you're right about the hollow grind. I missed it, the grind line is just r...

What would you guys expect this to cost? :/ hate that I missed the last usn release. Don't wanna have to pass on this one. Heh, Sal basically gave the toxic E4 away to usn members. With the discount code it was $65(I don't know if there's a code this time), which was right at cost I think . Without...

Look on the buy and sell forums at bladeforums.com and knife-bst.com. I got a frn cricket for $30 at the second site. It feels better in the hand than stainless and it's much lighter.

It's $5 for how many ever knives you want to send in. The sharpening is free, the money is for return shipping. Good luck!

Yes, Especially if you favor a certain color/material(Orange, carbon fiber, etc.) or supersteel (M4,M390,S90V). I own more sprints than regular production Spyders.

I've got a couple of Manix 2's and they don't have any visible flaws like yours does. Many people can be too picky, but I don't think that's the case here. Why not just exchange it for another one from the place you bought it?

Ok, thanks Blerv, I'm going to file down that burr, and when I get the time I'll pay some attention to the serrations. My initial idea of getting an ffg endura has kind of faded. I think I'm gonna just pull the trigger on the para 2. Not too fond of a back lock myself :P Don't know if you filed the...

I tend to change my mind on this issue, but I always go back to S90V. I look forward to the day when/if Sal gets around to making a larger Manix 2 because then hopefully a FFG sprint in CF/S90V will emerge.
