Re: Swayback Lookout Thread

Blade too thick snd too long. Clip doesn’t suit it, neither.
Big letdown based on current specs, but am sure will sell out in minutes.

Re: Why can't we have an upgraded UKPK?

Would love a nicely dressed up version with fluted Ti or CF.
Also, an LC200N version would be a must..!

Re: My first Spydiechef ... I love it but ...

I’ve had 4 Spydiechefs go through my hands and all had stick that didn’t go away with time and use.
My oldest, which is my current EDC knife, still has stick after over a year of daily carry.

Nice mod tho!

Re: Waterway vs Siren

I think that by the time the Siren becomes available, even the rust resistant Waterway will rust away. -_-;

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: 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 ...
