Re: KW Excl: Mil CF/Ti R.I.L. S90V = Mid May?!

I really want to like it because it combines so many things I love but something is lost when you make the Military heavier and this thing has some heft to to. I think I'd just assume have regular liner and full CF than titanium. We already have an all-CF S90V, though - even if a little hard to fin...

Re: CS Exclusive Orange Paramilitary 2 DLC CTS-XHP

1 week late to buying one new from CS, and people are already considering paying $225 for this knife!?! That seems bonkers to me... I agree but.... This was the highest priced PM2 sprint to date. There's a lot of flippers out there who bought multiples and need to recoup now. I for one hope CS fill...

Re: CS Exclusive Orange Paramilitary 2 DLC CTS-XHP

A big amen to that! A month and a half after release and there's still some of these ParaMilitary2 Black CTS-XHP/Orange G-10 left! Once again, the price ($175), black coated blade and okay steel are working against it. I dare say the BladeHQ ParaMilitary2 CPM-M4/Natural G-10 at $149.99 will sell out...

Re: Most Iconic Spyderco?

Actually (FWIW, which may not be a lot), when I think of "iconic" and Spyderco, I don't think of a specific knife, but the features that in my mind were the features that distinguished the early Spyderco knives: hole opener, lockback lock and a pocket clip.

Re: Where to buy replacement screws?

OTOH, there are only a small number of SAE miniature machine screw sizes in the range that might possibly be used by Spyderco. I would assume the same is true for miniature metric machine screws as well. So, finding a screw of the proper size should not be too much of a problem. Finding one of exac...

My wallet hates to agree, but you're right. They would have flown out the door (and onto eBay) at, say, $150. In the long run that's not good for anyone.

Re: CS Exclusive Orange Paramilitary 2 DLC CTS-XHP

That is a pretty quick sell-through for 800 knives. :spyder: They aren't "sold through" yet? According to an earlier post (see below), there are ~10 pieces or less left. I think that qualifies as sold through, no? Not sure how I missed this topic.....luckily got an order placed but was told today t...

Re: CS Exclusive Orange Paramilitary 2 DLC CTS-XHP

Are these seriously still available? Amazing. This has gotta be a record. PM hype officially dead? Pluses (orange; PM2) weighed down by minuses (coated blade; steel that is neither hot nor "super"; pricing generally perceived as somewhat steep compared to other sprints, exclusives and production va...

Re: Sonic Cleaners?

I've never tossed a knife in an ultrasonic cleaner, but I've used them on a lot of other things with great results - sounds like a reasonable plan. You probably already know the cautions, such as using either a cleaner sold for the purpose or something that can't harm anything that's going in. (For ...
