Re: Straight Razor from Spyderco

Yes please! Been shaving with a straight razor for over half a decade now and would never go back! I do believe it is fairly easy to eff up, tho. I remember Strider releases something they called a steaight razor, but it ended up being a real crappy razor and a horrible cutting implement / knife. I’...

Re: Bombshell Flash Batch

Re: Siren?

If only the scales were orange... black is so friggin boring. Plus, orange is the most visible color under water. Just look at all the diving watches. Could have been a 10/10 release. Close, but no cigar. PS. Still going to buy one because I’m a senseless fanboy. Cheers! White on a black background...

Re: Watu...AKA Lil Chokwe

A hard pass for me.
Especially with a compression lock. Looks like it has the same issue the Rhino model has with the tab when the compression lock access cutout is.

Would have been a nice option if it were a framelock or even linerlock.

Re: Spydercos self-loosening pivots

Yup. Every Spyderco backlock knife I ever had (North of 100) had this issue. Blue Loctite didn’t help, neither.
I always assumed that this is why the company uses red Loctite - to thread those pivots shut.

Re: Spydiechef Rusted After First Use

Strange. I’ve had 3 Chefs (2 V.2 CQI and the most recent black screwed V3), and none demonstrated the slightest sign of rust. It does look like the OP has the latest V.3 with black screws and ceramic detent, so contamination would be my guess. Using some polishing compound and removing the rusty spo...

Re: My STRIDERCO just came in and I'm in love !

Glad to hear I’m not the only person who thinks that the Spyderco Brouwer is basically the Spyderco version of a PT. Only it’s better, IMO.

With a low riding MXG clip it’s perfection.

I also really love the Brouwer. It is perhaps Spyderco’s most underrated pocket knife.

Re: MXG Titanium Replacement For Standard 3-Screw Clip (Non Deep Pocket)

Thank goodness for these aftermarket clip companies. If not for them, the Smock and Brouwer would have been unusable and uncarriable for me.

Re: Lanyard tube rattle in Taichung models

I've removed the lanyard tube from both my Spydiechef and Advocate because of rattle. A $200+ knife that rattles like a maraca seems cheap. Shouldn't have to jerryrig a fix with superglue on a knife that costs that much. But, removing the tube doesn't detract from aesthetics really, so no big deal....

Re: Lanyard tube rattle in Taichung models

I can't figure out how having a lanyard hole became the default rather than a specific and somewhat rare feature. Like an Emerson wave, it's useful, but only for a very small number of specialists, so why do 90% of knives have lanyard holes and <10% have a wave? That’s a good point. How many holes ...

Re: Lanyard tube rattle in Taichung models

I have some that do it too. It never really bothered me, but some people here have suggested: remove the lanyard tube entirely or put locktite on the tube or put figernail polish on the tube. All of those require pulling off the show-side scale so don't go for it unless you are comfortable taking y...

Lanyard tube rattle in Taichung models

Anybody else experience this on their Taichung Spydercos?

Both my SpydieChefs, Bouwer and Smock have developed this annoying lanyard tube rattle.

Maybe one day Spyderco will stop ruining their knives with ugly, obtrusive lanyard holes.

Re: Para 3 Salt Lc200n

While I love the Salt line and LC200N, I do not think I’d get a Para3 LW Salt. BD1N is already very resistant to corrosion, and it comes at a very attractive price-point. A Chaparral LW in LC200N is a different story, however! I’d love one of those, especially for its thin blade-stock. Would be inte...
